COMPETITIVE MADNESS

I don't know what's more tragic, that people believed in the "healing" powers of a man's leg, or that thieves brutally amputated and took off with it.

It's a little disconcerting to think how many educated, middle-class people in India believe in astrology and faith-healers. But then with role models who regularly consult astrologers and marry trees, what can we expect?

Astrology is an ancient practice based on the study of the movements of the planets and stars.According to the historians,astrology was first practised and started by the Babylonians.Astrology and astronomy might sound similar but they are both different in nature.Astronomy deals with the science of the movements of planets whereas astrology deals with the prediction of the future based on the movements of the heavenly bodies.

Yes, except that one is a science whereas the other one is a pseudoscience and misleads and fools millions.
