Is fate a real belief. Does fate play its role in our lives? Or is it just an imaginary judgment that life is steered by fate. “What is going to happen will happen is pre-determined by fate”. Is it an expression of consolation, helplessness or just a natural feeling to accept fate. The things we do are controlled by fate? In other words that is our karma. The submission of karma to fate is taken as a dictum which needs a critical appraisal.
However, there is a new twist in this debate which relates to the role of genes in our bodies. Genes in the body mostly determine our health-related fate. Now that issue can be handled with the editing of genes as done recently of Chinese twins.
