'26' is bad omen for India

Makes for most interesting reading. At this point, having being born in India, I am glad I was born on a Friday the 13th. Yes, really :-D

Similar to the Mumbai terror attack, many other disasters have earlier occurred in India on the same date: the 26th, although 13 is considered the most ominous number worldwide. The tsunami struck India on December 26, 2004, the Gujarat earthquake was on January 26, 2001, blasts rocked Guwahati on May 26, 2007, and the Ahmedabad blasts this year were on September 26 before the Mumbai attack on 26th of this month.

Numerologists and astrologers claim it's no coincidence. "Numerologically, the number 26 is a very unlucky number. 26 comes to 8 (2+6=8) which brings in destruction," Mumbai-based numerologist Sanjay Jhumani said.

But famous astrologer Bejan Daruwalla disagrees, "It's not only on the basis of numerology. There are astrological reasons as well for the Mumbai attack. Mars and Saturn are in conjunction now. Astrologically, this is known as Angara Yoga which brings in destruction," he explains.
