A few days back, I was signing a register at the reception at my workplace when the security guard gave me a key to locker# 1 and told me aloud “Lucky Number Sab!!” with a smile on his face (Yes, we have to lock things up in a locker before we step into the delivery center). On my way to my cube, I was wondering how the security guard got to know of my lucky number. Number 1 is indeed my lucky number.
19th October, 1986 – a Sunday is my birthday. Sunday is the 1st day in a week. Adding up the digits of 19 recursively sum up to number 1. October is the 10th month in a year and adding up the digits of 10 recursively sum up to number 1.
Adding up the digits of my account number recursively sum up to number 1.
Adding up the digits of my employee id recursively sum up to number 1.
I had opened the batting in all the matches that I played in college (But, I had never been a 1st bencher since my 9th grade. In fact, I had never had a place for me since my 9th grade. I had been a no-bencher since my 9th grade :P).
Stats apart, number 1 has always had me charged up and focussed. There is something in number 1 that keeps me going. Stats would not stop here. There are a lot more to come in future. Now, share your lucky number with me. what is your lucky number?
PS: I’ve been away from this space for more than a month now. I’d been busy with other priorities. I hope I get my time here..
