I have been grown up watching my dad actively working for the All India Superstition Eradication Committee since past twenty five years. I spent my childhood travelling to the remote villages with dad and the whole team to spread awareness by conducting workshops and seminars.

Having lived in small towns to migrating to the city  I am aware of the adverse grim conditions prevailing across the villages due to SUPERSTITION.

India is a large south Asian country with billions of people belonging to different caste and creed with different social and cultural background and socioeconomic class. Here, people have different views, beliefs, perception, and knowledge about different situations 

Superstition in India is considered a widespread social problem. Superstition refers to any belief or practice which is explained by supernatural causality, and is in contradiction to modern science. Some beliefs and practices, which are considered superstitious by some, may not be considered so by others. The gap, between what is superstitious and what is not, widens even more when considering the opinions of the general public and scientists 


this foundation intends to tell the stories we wish were never told. unTELL is not just about telling but is also an attempt to reach out to the right people and spread awareness. It is a high time we should consider superstition as a major issue that is bothering our nation's growth.


Through unTELL we wish to eradicate superstition and contribute a better living for the affected lives.


9 December 2016, at around 5 a.m., when there was relatively low visibility and a deep silence had enveloped the area, three people barged into a house in Tapkara panchayat  of Torpa block and attacked a 60 year-old woman named Susari Budh. They attacked her from behind without saying a word. She was dragged mercilessly out of the house, her hands and neck were tied and kerosene was poured on her. The poor frail lady begged for her life but her pleas fell on deaf ears. Nature was a mute witness to the men lighting a matchstick and setting her on fire, burning her alive in front of her rented house. 

An innocent woman lost her life, accused of indulging in witchcraft. Hatred and violence enveloped the area. 

According to a report in The Economic Times, “in the last decade alone, Assam has witnessed nearly 100 killings as a result of various social evils practiced by people inspired by superstition. According to police records, 21 cases of witch-hunting were registered in 2006, followed by seven cases in 2007, 10 cases in 2008, four cases in 2009, 11 cases in 2010, 29 cases in 2011 and 14 cases in 2012 across Assam.”

New Delhi: A case shook Delhi police on Sunday morning where 11 members of a same family were found dead in the Burari area of Delhi. The deceased included seven women and two men and two minors. As per sources, the bodies of the family would be cremated today evening around 5 pm. The suspicious handwritten notes found by the police said the eyes of the 11 members should be donated.

The police suspicion on occult angle is cleared after finding the notes. They are still investigating further links of the deaths with occult practices or any godman which must have been involved.
