It was morning 10:00 a.m. and the doctor seemed so tired when I looked into her eyes.
Just that I couldn’t stop myself I asked her – Dr what happened you look very tired and its only 10, seems like you had a late night!
“These days you must be feeling tired and your legs must be paining…Don’t worry,…Its only because you’ve running in my mind day and night!!”
She said oh yes! Around 2:00 a.m. there was a delivery case and it lasted for 2 hours as it was normal delivery.
It just struck to me, oh! Yeah, if it was cesarean then one doesn’t have to go at such odd hours.
That’s when she shared another incident where she said, I have this girl who is scheduled for cesarean and somehow I tried to fit it as per the date that she wants it to be done however she is not happy and is crying and begging to operate her at certain time, which is totally not in the hands of the doctor.
“Every convenience brings its own inconveniences along with it.”
I was a bit confused when doctor said as per the astrological readings there is a certain time when the baby should be born! I was surprised and was wondering what a dilemma for the doctor but then I asked does anyone else entertain like this…since this is America and do they know what all these- stars, astrological timings has to do with the birth of a child and guess what the entire hospital (which has people from almost all parts of the world), is aware of this fact :D!
The doctor looked at the crying to be mother and asked her you are an engineer and even you also behave like this then whom should we look for support 😀

All these conversations made me think….! How important is it to be born at a certain time and date of the year and month? This case cesarean can be still planned but in olden days even cesarean kinds were last minute so …what’s the fate of the child that is born at such circumstance? Will he/she be treated differently just because he/she was not born at the good time and date that the astrology supports? How such a thing can be handled?

I never believed in astrology, I am a strong believer of karma and hence may be its because of my up bringing and the place that I have been but still I have seen some strong supporters who don’t even make any decisions until the astrologer asks them to do so and convinces them the good results of that time and date.

A very good example can be seen about Abhishek and Ash :D….I would say what a marketing is that for the astrologer that am sure by now that guy must have his appointments booked until the end of 2008 :D!!!!
“Accept the things to which fate binds you, and love the people with whom fate brings you together, but do so with all your heart.”~ Marcus Aurelius
Somehow lately, with the dates and timings…my mind is going gaga over all such instances…what is good? What is not? But my heart says its all in the karma of oneself
“Dreams are like stars…you may never touch them, but if you follow them they will lead you to your destiny.”
What do my friends have to comment on this? I know there are people who are strong believer but I would like to hear them too… 😀
Tell me what makes the difference?
