Mr. Nimborkar gave lecture on superstition and explained how Babas cheat the innocent people in the name of miracles and garb of religion. He also showed several demonstrations about elimination of superstitions to prove his point. Everything that happens is based on science and nothing else. That was what told by the lord Buddha himself during his sermons, he pointed out.
The other guests also spoke on the occasion and asked the people to beware of the bogus Babas who exploit the people to gain money.
Mr. Lahu Ramteke conducted the programme and also proposed the vote of thanks. A large number of people attended the programme.
