Megastar Amitabh Bachchan says human beings are inclined towards numerology, horoscope and other future prediction tactics due to their vulnerability.
"Each moment of life is filled with the unknown...and those that profess they know the unknown, are either messengers from above, which would be hard to believe, or are merely on a commercial spree... problem is we as a race are so vulnerable to what the next holds for us... and these teachings are popular," the 72-year-old posted on his official blog srbachchan.tumblr.com.
The "Paa" actor seemed to ponder over this aspect of life after seeing horoscope coverage in some newspaper Thursday.
"Each magazine, paper, channel has that hour or page or column reserved for the predictions of the day year month, minute...just so many things that suddenly take up our attention and guidance.
"This mornings press for example had huge coverage of what the year holds for each astrological zodiacal chinese calendar of janam patri fame that told us all in no uncertain terms what to expect each day and month of the new year 2015," he further posted.
Meanwhile, the actor is gearing up for an array of upcoming movies like "Piku", "Wazir" and "Shamitabh".
