This article reflects the thought that crosses the mind of every sincere Hindu. It is true indeed that the superstitions have taken over the the basic ideals of the religion. The rituals which are unnecessary have been forced on the follwers, making it compulsory and creating confusion in their minds. What is strange is that the learned people also follow those rituals blindly without thinking about its relevance. This has got to change.

The other religions have a clear advantage over Hinduism as far as the aspect of simplicity is concerned. Most of the religious practices in other religions are simpler compared to the ones which are associated with Hinduism. Casteism and untouchability us another problem which is forcing many people towards religious conversion. The suggestions provided in the above article must be followed to secure the existence of the religion.
