Indians strongly believe in fate and karma. Find out how these beliefs influence the modern Indian mind-set and affect the way people live their lives.

In practice, most people believe in fate when it is convenient to do so and casually disregard it when it’s not. Explore the fascinating way in which fate and karma continue to impact the modern Indian mind-set.
