Punya Protects You Everytime

Doubt vs Faith The unfortunate fact about most of us is that as most educated minds are fed on the Cartesian principle of doubting everything, the logician’s axiom about insufficiency of individual cases to prove universal propositions and other similar doubts crop up over and over again.
