PRESENCE OF SUPERSTITION IN INDIA IN THE 21ST CENTURY

The irrational activities primarily ar the beliefs, traditions, practices that have passed down the centuries enjoying a serious role within the day to day lives of the individuals variable from region to region starting from blank minimum danger to harmful practices. There has been a trial to showcase the analysis done on the prevalence of superstitions in Indian society within the current century. The analysis has been divided into 3 components particularly on the irrational beliefs followed by individuals in their day to day lives, irrational beliefs followed throughout marriages and totally different occasions and last irrational beliefs associated with animals and paranormal people.

These irrational beliefs and practices ar pseudoscientific and illogical based mostly upon blind religion on the centuries recent perceived myths and common beliefs across the region and lots more and plenty. Scientific, rational and affordable awareness programmes throughout the country, faculty lessons on the horrors of superstitious notion with correct directions on the whole demolition of any form of irrational beliefs and notions, strict governmental rules and rules, formulation of effective statutes, directives, and penalties against fatal irrational practices like human or kid sacrifice and academic initiatives across all the regions would facilitate the lots in recognizing the folly and turning into free from the shackles of superstitious notion.

Mass campaign through print, media, drama, advertisements, films to coach the general public, however such rituals haven’t any scientific basis and that they will be calamitous for people in addition as society and avoiding the glorification of those practices onscreen, together with a rustic wide coordinated approach instead of a localized one, public awareness campaigns to coach individuals concerning anti superstitious notion law and its clauses, campaigns have to be compelled to associate folk to spot and track such acts if performed at rural or urban level since it’s laborious for police alone to trace such practices if performed at isolated level. We have a tendency to should set examples by acting sturdy against such cake, Tantrik etc., public campaigns against superstitious notion must involve outstanding spiritual figures from across the religions to deal with that giant population that have deep religion in them. It ought to involve faculty going kids as a result of kids ar a lot of vulnerable to absorb such beliefs from the society at the same time additionally for seeding of scientific temper. It’ll be higher if specific chapters will be additional in to their course of study. Schools, colleges, universities will be accustomed conduct disputation. It’ll facilitate to reveal irrational behaviours and can additionally facilitate in making positive atmosphere for growth of reasoning and scientific temperament.

People have to be compelled to perceive the distinction between ‘Superstition’ and ‘Belief’. Superstitious notion are a few things that produces you weak and coward and stops from doing something, whereas belief could be a positive conception that offers you all the strength and confidence to perform employment. There’s a awfully skinny line between the 2, and care ought to be taken to not slip into the darker aspect. Fight against superstitious notion isn’t solely the requirement of hour however citizen’s basic duty. As in line with constitution (51A), it’s a citizen’s basic duty to evolve scientific temper, humanism, spirit of enquiry and reform. Scientific temper is that the attitude that offers US the facility of reasoning and reforms and it’s directly against the thought of irrational beliefs and practices. However, by viewing education, economic and social station in Asian country, it’ll not be realistic to assume that a mere legislation or government effort will eradicate deep nonmoving irrational behaviour from society. We want a well-coordinated country wide mass campaign to aware the folk concerning the harms of such practices and beliefs, at the same time a nationwide campaign solely will force the govt to act sturdy and determined against inhuman spiritual practices.
