Knowingly or unknowingly, our Bharatian society has some of the superstitions listed here. Check out superstitions of other countries by clicking on images.

Disclaimer: This list is prepared based on points gathered from people of different backgrounds like - locations, languages, religions, cultures, etc. These points are not intended to hurt anyone's feelings. But if you have any of these superstitions, then we suggest you to come out of it (them) by opening your mind beyond the boundaries of those superstitions, day-by-day.
                    Remember that some people opposed those who told "the earth is not flat" at some point in time in Europe (and yes, Europeans had this superstition - "earth is flat and they can throw you out of earth by pushing you from it's edges and you fall to hell. The same feeling was reflected in Bible as well")?!

30. Only those candidates "who have studied in a well known educational institute in a metropolitan cities like Bengaluru or Delhi" will have good knowledge/skill. Candidates who have studied in government educational institutes in an unknown village will not have good knowledge/skill.
(This point is based on my recent experience in one of the companies i worked for. Two members of H.R team who seemed to have come out of an interview session were discussing something like this. When i heard that, i felt - "then what is the meaning of Village talents or don't they know about village talent or have they not heard the words "village talent" or according to them, is Bharata filled with metropolitan cities like Bengaluru/Delhi or is all talent in Bharata coming out of only metropolitan cities"?!)
