Rather resurgence of religion and folk religion is more important in the present context. In fact Folk Religion is transmitted by the common people in any region, place or country from generation after generation and it has great impact upon the political, economic, and cultural development of particular region and continues to satisfy the emotional and religious needs of the people.
