People & beliefs

September 28, 2010 Leave a comment Go to comments

This is with reference to the article by Dr Ramesh Khatry “Fakers & followers” (Sept 27). It is true that there are many fake babas, pundits, and shadus in our country. Interestingly, it is easier to fool believers than non-believers. I really agree with the writer that we Nepalis want to believe in something. As a matter of fact, majority of people on earth tend to have faith on something.

Once people start believing in something, it later turns into a cult, sect or religion. There is nothing wrong in having a belief in something or someone, but it may confine one to a small world. That was probably why Gerry Spence once said, ” I would rather have a mind opened by wonder than one closed by belief.” Speaking in line with this quote, it can be a good idea to listen to all religious pundits who claim to be something. However, at the same time, validity and verification must be taken into account.
