Hinduism the main religion of India has its foundation from Superstitious beliefs. Lack of proper education and exposure makes Indian minds lacking confidence and start believing whatever the so called God-man's preach or practice to exploit their believers.

Don't know how on earth someone can eat cowdung and drink gomutra (urine from cow) everyday as their religious stuffs. So many people were seen to believe Donald Trump, Sachin Tendulkar as their god and they have photos of them hanging inside the praying room. Weirdest thinkings.

Where else will no one bother to push a cow pooping and peeing and humping one another in the middle of the busiest street in the capital city? Who else has temples to rat Gods? Saddhus, fikir, magic men? Sorry India- you crazy- but it's what makes you unique.

India is the most superstitious and rubbish country ever. Because it is filled with psuedoscience astrology.
