The Pagans used to worship every phenomenon of nature. The sun, moon, planetary bodies, trees, rivers were all worshipped because men believed that these could influence life. When people suffered from any disease or were affected by some natural calamity, they said that it was due to the effect of an evil star. They believed in ghosts, but actually they were afraid of darkness. Some numbers like 13 are considered inauspicious. In India, the crossing of a cat while on a journey or sneezing before a departure is treated as ominous. Curd is offered before a journey as it is believed to dispel evil powers. Such beliefs actually have no logic and reveal the weakness of the human heart. Our lives will be on tenterhooks if we go on believing in these ideas.[170 words approx]
