There are a lot of videos that go viral on the internet but this one left me fuming. You’d disagree with me, but there’s a thin line between religion and superstition. When both meet, it’s a guaranteed disaster waiting to happen. It’s kinda sad that India, though culturally rich, still chooses to follow the ignorant, illogical practices which are absolutely outrageous, when we can channel and focus our brilliant heritage into shaping our future.
We stumbled upon this video of a ‘Baba’ sorts whirling a new-born all over the place, in lightning speed that could easily cause shock, trauma or worse, break his bones. Now, it would have been great if the people surrounding him would have raised an alarm, but this was an actual ritual-function families/relatives of the child were invited, and everybody can be seen hooting and cheering. There’s just one word for people like this – WASTE.
