Man drags vastu firm to consumer forum after not observing the promised changes in his life

There is faith. And then there is blind faith. And some people or companies know how to exploit those who cannot understand the difference between the two.

Remember those advertisements on television which would ask you to wear some jewellery (Nazar Suraksha Kavach?!) with some specific stones or buy some product which would magically solve all the problems in your life?

Well, now it seems there is a way to discourage such advertisements or false promises. A man in Vijayapura, Karnataka dragged a vastu consultation firm to the district consumer forum after he found out that his life, in fact, did not change according to the promises made by the firm, according to The Hindu.

The consumer forum ordered issuance of notice to the firm 'Sarala Vastu', who according to petitioner Mahadev Dudihal, told him that his life would change if he made 'architectural corrections' to his house by spending lakhs of rupees.

Dudihal also reportedly paid the firm Rs 11,600 as consultation fee.

Perhaps now, con men and phony godmen will think twice before trying to hoodwink people and exploit their faith.
