The magic of "7"  

Posted by Divya A L

I've always felt special about the number "seven"
The numerous things associated with it, has left me stunned
The no of continents in the world is seven
The no of days in a week is seven
The wonders of the world are seven
The rainbow colors - VIBGYOR are also seven
The basic octaves(the swaras) in Indian music is seven
The celestial group of stars called "saptharishimandalam" is a constellation of seven stars
The number of periods(rows) in a periodic table is seven
The neutral PH value between acidity and basicity is seven
The no of segments used for a digital display is seven
The no of Logic gates are seven
According to Hindu mythology, the number of incarnations of a man is seven
Also there are seven worlds in the universe, seven seas and the seven gurus(saptha rishis)
The hindu marriage is incomplete without the "sapthaPadi" the seven rounds around the God of fire(each round signifying a vow taken by the couple)
The no of doors to heaven, our ancestors say, is seven
Apart from the "known facts" said above,
This number blends very well with experiences in my dough
I was born on a tuesday, which is the only day of the week that has the letter count of "seven"
My name(initials inclusive) is a framed with the letter count of seven
My mom's name has a letter count of seven
The best of my friends' names also have the letter count of seven
The first book i read was the one in "The secret seven" series
The first play i watched in Ravindra Kalakshetra was "Snow white and the seven dwarfs"

My favourite of movies is those of 007
My roll no in school was 007 ;)
My first company -Infosys also has a letter count of seven
My employee ID there also ended with a seven
One of my favourites is the "harry potter" which is a series of seven books
My favourite game is a a game of dice and the opposite faces of the dice always add upto seven
The most unfrogettable experience of 7 with me Was when i and my friend had been to tirupati
It was the seventh of july 2007,(07-07-07); Had walked up the seven hills starting at 7am, barefoot, to have the Lord's darshanam
