The love day is about to begin within a week. But before finding love, did you consult the astrologer?
A popular debate on a TV show revealed that people , rather younger generation are now more keen towards the arranged marriage. And most of the arranged marriages happen mostly with the consultation of the astrologers. How does horoscopes affect marriages? Not only the horoscopes, but many other factors like the place and date and time of birth decides many important milestones of our lives. Should we rely on them to lead our lives?
Though not an ardent believer, but similar to my opinion of God, religious activities and superstitions, I believe we cannot ignore them completely. Debates are still on I suppose, regarding whether astrology is science or art. Some aspects of it rely completely on the position of the planets. But recently the discovery of few more planets has stirred up the foundation and existence of the so-called science. But whatever it is, and though we don’t know the proofs, there are people who believe in it.
But then, horoscopes are not only the influential factor. There are numerology, palmistry, and tarot cards too. Mathematics is already considered a science, but aren’t the numbers discovered by humans? Indians are famous for their discovery of the number zero. So what if our ancient ancestors had created a number system with 15 numbers instead of 10? How will numerology sustain? How did in the early times, parrots picked out our rashee? Palm lines maybe indeed unique, but in that case in future, will we be able to predict our life using fingerprints?
There are instances too where people went against all the superstitions and yet lived their life fully and successfully and maybe happily ever after too. Does it mean they may had obstructions or dissatisfaction or hard life but was never known to us? Or have they defied the existence of these sciences? I wonder at the mystery of these and many more sciences which at times, makes our life hard, but which was suppose to make it easy!
Maybe, everything happens for good and for a reason.. but unknown? Whadd’ ya think?
