It is popularly believed that sneezing immediately before commencing any kind of work is a bad omen or it brings unfavorable results, is it really a bad omen or it's actually considered good?

  • How is sneezing of one person related with functioning of another product or service or another person or group of persons? People sneeze every single second all around the globe so that should affect sales orders of companies all the time? No export anywhere in the world should be possible when there is sneezing all over the globe, right?

  • @ChinmaySarupria This I am seeing in my fellow colleagues for the past 15 years. You may sound right but people's belief I am asking and if it has any support. I do not mind on getting negative votes from you bcoz you people think you are the most intelligent in the universe and underestimate others, Aug 29 '18 at 10:00

    I'll make it clear. What you said about sneeze is true but it's never applicable directly on daily activities. It is for different purpose. We people don't have knowledge about it but we assume it as belief system and practice in wrong way. So for your daily activities it's never gonna work. Make sure you worship God in correct manner and with devotion, no obstacles will be there for your activities/works. Aug 29 '18 at 10:07

    In my case if I'm about to leave my house and someone sneezes right at that time then my elders like mom will ask me to stop for few moments before starting the journey. So, there's a belief that it's a bad omen. @ParthasarathyRaghavan

    omens are indicative signs when you're about to do something big, important whether it is a new job, buying property, travel etc. sneezing without having a cold, suddenly, just when you're about to start some non-mundane activity is a sign that you should be careful ahead.
