Today is the last synchronised date of this century. 11-12-13. And people are rushing to make this date be a special part of their lives.
The news is flooding with stories about couples who are tying the knot today. I follow a lot of photographers on Facebook and quite a lot of them said that the enquiries for this date were really high.
In India, the marriages are fixed on a date after checking all the astronomical and numerological significances. But according to a lot of astrologers, there is nothing special about this date as far as the stars go. But still numerous couples are rushing toward the mandap to tie the knot.
And if this was not enough, there are expectant mother’s who want to deliver their baby today. I was always taught that birth and death are two things that no human can ever control. These two area’s belong to god, and nobody can interfere in them.
I was apparently taught wrong, because people are giving birth on the day they like so that their kids birthday would be on a unique date.
Now I don’t know if being born on a sequential date would make them any more better in life. I mean come on, if being born on a particular date changed your life’s fate, women around the world would make sure to plan their pregnancy so meticulously that every child would end up being the president or a Hollywood star or maybe a world renowned writer or a Nobel prize winner.
And if everybody became so good then the not so good people like me would be the extraordinary ones because we would be the people who are just not that good in everything .
Oooh! I like that!! 😀
Hmm….maybe it is really not that bad about people going crazy after such dates. I mean I admit I went a little overboard last year on my birthday because the date was 20-12-2012. I went paranoid thinking I’l buy such and such stuff and the bill would bear such an awesome date.
Thanks to my friends who knocked some sense into me.
The point is, that any date no matter how awesome it is would not change the decisions you make in your life. Even if a person is born on a super cool date, that would not guarantee his being really famous in the world. His choices in life would be the sole determinant of what happens with him. And the same applies on getting married on such a date. Yes the albums would bear an awesome date but would that really guarantee you marital bliss?
Celebrate such dates. There’s no harm in that. But don’t go overboard with the celebrations. Each day is special no matter how ordinary or extraordinary the date is.
