Q1.12 India has had a long and unbroken tradition of great scholarship — in mathematics, astronomy, linguistics, logic and ethics. Yet, in parallel with this, several superstitious and obscurantist attitudes and practices flourished in our society and unfortunately continue even today — among many educated people too. How will you use your knowledge of science to develop strategies to counter these attitudes?

If the literacy rate of India will increase then the beliefs in superstitions will automatically go down. If we make them aware of the world of science, make them familiar with the laws of physics will really help them.
