I've blind faith in my mom

I may not follow the dictates of any of the supernatural forces, but I do blindly follow some of the beliefs of my mom, says the Company boy Vivek Oberoi

I don’t think I am superstitious, or even religious. I do, however, have blind faith in my mother. I may not follow the dictates of any of the supernatural forces that people generally swear by, but I do blindly follow some of the beliefs of my mom.

She is extremely religious and believes in many of the tenets of Hinduism. I am so much of a mama’s boy that I do end up following all her instructions without any questions. For instance, she would insist that I wear certain stones, which she believes to be good for me. Would I say ‘No’ to her? Never.

I also follow her advice to never hurt anyone deliberately and I have kept that advice close to my heart. I don’t believe in Zodiac signs but when my fans, my sister and brothers call me a true Virgoan, I never smirk but instead, have all the respect to believe them.

Is belief in superstition, then, one’s own? Or does it stem from one’s belief in loved ones? Well, for me, as long as my family, friends and now my fans believe in something, I do want to endorse their belief. But in isolation, I may not be religiously monitoring my state of progress or decline with the help of stones, horoscopes or some freak notion.
