Number Therapy - !?!


Can a mobile number change your life? Well, you can take a call on that. But businessman Rohit Jhanab, swears a changed number changed his fortunes. He changed his SIM card on the advice of a numerologist, and “things did a complete turnaround”.

Ditto, says Niharika Sharma, an engineering student in Bangalore. She used to fall ill frequently. When medication did no good, she tried the ‘number therapy.’ It worked. “I barely visit my doctor now,” she says.


Ok.. so first it was the 'K' crap (Rakesh Roshan, Ekta Kapoor, Karan Johar). Then came Vastushastra / Feng Shui - and everyone started to tear down their rooms and / or houses and rebuilding. Then we had people changing the way their names are spelt - adding an extra 'e' or an 'i' and what not. And now... people want to get new SIM cards as per numerology and want to know what screen saver would guarantee them success in business!


I know people who look around for a good number, as in - perhaps easy to dial or easy to remember - may be something in a sequence. Hell I got a number which spells my name! (my cell number starts with 725 as in RAJ) - I do understand that. I get it. 

But switching your SIM card after consulting a numerologist and saying that a change in the mobile number can change fortunes and improve your health and.... arrrrggghhhh!!!

To each his own.

All I want to say is - Dikhaawon pe mat jaao... apni akal laddaao - PLEASE!

How about WORKING for your success, instead of relying on ... on all this auspicious in-auspicious crap? Sounds a tad bit more logical, don't you think?

If you actually think all this Feng Shui / K / Numerology crap helps you, well ... if it works for you, then fine. It it makes you happy, it can't be that bad.

A bit for the people who have the ability to think - did it ever occur to you, that it (the numerology, color and all that crap) might all be just in your head! It works the same way a placebo does. The way I put it - you lie enough to yourself and you will eventually start to believe it to be true.

Stop making excuses for your misery or your lack of success.. lucky/unlucky. In-auspicious name/number/day. It DOESN'T WORK THAT WAY!

Well I have been... fine, I guess. Praise the lord!! It's definitely NOT because of a new SIM card I got based on my date of birth or whatever. ;)

How about you, Agnel? How have you been, mate? been a while!
