Answer
Dear Samit,

People have various views. Some believe that God only acts, we are just mediums. That is why they call God as 'Jartar', the doer. Some think that though God's power is unlimited, he has left a window for actions of men, and the fate of men (term includes women too) depends on his actions. Others think that action of a person's is limited to this life only because there is neither any God nor a future life. For those who believe in God, Brahma, the creator God and writer of festinies, keeps the result of some actions in abeyance, and the action can fructify in any other future life. That accounts for the uncertainties in life. Nobody really knows the truth. Your view is as correct as of any other person. With best regards,

Yours sincerely,

Aupmanyav
