The History Behind Popular Indian Subcontinental Superstitions

This writing explains some of the popular Indian subcontinental superstitions and how, contrary to popular belief, they remain an integral part of our lives even in the 21st century. Holding history as a lamp, it explains how our ancestors might have formed the popular superstitions during ancient times and for what purpose, if any.
