Book Summary   by:madhuahuja     Original Author: Madhu Ahuja
ª
 
I was very superstitious once upon a time in my life. But I changed after I logically analyzed life circumstances. I now believe in hard work not luck that makes our lives truly peaceful. Superstitions that I don't believe in are: * A Black Cat crossing my way would bring me bad luck. (In fact I have a black Cat in my building that I give cheese, biscuits and milk. She crosses me infinite times! I haven't had any bad luck at all.) * Astrology, Numerology, Palmistry, Feng Shui & related predictions would affect my every day life. I live in the present without fearing my past and worrying about my future. If these "Jyotishi" could predict the future, why weren't people saved from Hurricanes like Tsunami and Katrina, why wasn't Amitabh Bachchan told he'd be in Rs100 crore debt when he made films under ABCL company, why do some of these predictors sit on the road side telling other people's future? Didn't they have the power to foresee their own future?(If they had they shouldn't have been on sitting on road side!) * I don't believe in any colour, stone, accessories or any material things bringing me happiness, peace, prosperity, good health and wealth. Only my hard work, dedication, focus, courage and strength will bring me the true happiness, good health, wealth and all that I need.
* I don't believe adding an extra "a" in my name, making important decisions on certain dates,months and certain years or going out on certain days will affect my life in any way. For me knowing what's right and what's wrong, taking right decisions and making right choices is all that matters the most. * I don't pour milk on any statue, I don't throw flowers, rice, water or any food on any statue, in the direction of the Moon or Sun. This is because statues don't drink or eat anything as they are non-living beings and when we throw food, flowers, milk or water towards the Sun and Moon, these solids and liquids land on the ground because of the gravitational force. Yes, I always give food to the beggars and under privileged on the streets because they are living beings like me. I don't believe in "Kundali" system and manglik/non-manglik affecting any marriage because they are illogical and fails to hold true at all circumstances. * I don't believe in the power of "bhoot-pret" because I believe in the Power of Almighty.
