The history of witchcrafts can be traced back to hundreds of years ago, which still has a foothold in India, where it is primarily used to harm someone for various reasons, which may also include personal enmity. But, make no mistake, these witchcrafts are also used for good reasons as well, which are not highlighted much.

It is primarily rural areas, where such acts are carried out and given the prevalence of superstitions, these things are going to continue in the future as well.
