Has any superstition ever had a like effect upon you?When I was a kid, I used to watch movies and hindi serials a lot. Sometimes, I also used to chance upon some newspaper headlines concerning the same thing I am going to talk about: Superstitions. These movies and serials and newspaper headlines used to depict that how issueless parents go to their places of worship and pray for a child. Also, sometimes, the help of magic users is also being sought for the same by these people and they then perform various kind of rituals, sometimes completely absurd, in order to have a child. Such things had had such an influence upon my mind that until I got in my tenth standard, I used to think that after marriage, women magically get pregnant and then have children.
It is perhaps not correct to call these beliefs espoused by many people as 'superstitions'.
However, has any like thing ever had such an effect upon you?
