"बाबासाहेबांनी मला वाचायला शिकवला आहे, कोणा समोर वाकायला नाही !"
Superstition is always blind. Its like a flock of sheep, wherein if one sheep starts walking in one direction where he is not aware of its destination, all the foolish sheep will walk behind him intending to find something good. We being humans have a mind which is free to think and evaluate the things around us. We should have the ability to accept the things which are rational. It's nothing like that since a mob of people are following certain things it doesn't conclude that it has to be true. Religion and superstition work on the same principle where in a person have no right to think or question about it. Many times people deviate other people to walk on the steps which they are going but it should be our own choice to analyse if the steps other person taking is right or wrong.
In the picture, its been showed that once a boy was going to his college for studying. And due to festive season his one of the friend ask him out to visit one of the religious tent to seek blessings from the god. The boy was clever and rational and was very much inspired from the teaching of Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar. He simply replies that," Dr. Ambedkar teached me to learn new things by reading(to take education), he never told to bow down in front of so call demi gods or supernatural beings. Its been translated in marathi as, "बाबासाहेबांनी मला वाचायला शिकवला आहे, कोणा समोर वाकायला नाही !"
This is a short message concluding that stick to education, stick to reason and stick to the truth. Dont get deviated by any of the foolish means.
