I, Me and Myself support superstitions

IndiBlogger - Where Indian Blogs Meethttp://leadcap.org/

I was recently down with a stomach infection, so Me and Myself decided to visit him. I felt that it was an evil eye which is causing him all the difficulties. Thus began a discussion supporting bad omens. As always, our consciences ICON, MECON AND MYSELFCON (I CONSCIENCE, ME CONSCIENCE AND MYSELF CONSCIENCE abbreviated) were there to give their constant ethical barbs. Here, goes the conversation

I `Somebody has cast their evil eye, for no reason I had a stomach infection’

ICON `The evil eye is yours which wants to eat everything that is available in meeting/parties’

Myself `To ward off the evil eye, you should put a few coconut shells in a plate and make bonfire of it’

MYSELFCON `While doing so, if it sparks, say goodbye to your eyesight :D’

Me `That is why you should not eat non-vegetarian on certain days and months, Gods get displeased and this happens’

MECON `As if Gods get pleased if you kill animals/fowls on other days/months. How these guys have manipulated God’s will for their selfishness?’

I `Whatever science may say, omens created by our elders are true?’

ICON `Wish some elder had created a superstition that you should follow traffic rules, people would have complied with it unfailingly’

Myself `There is universality about bad omens, take the case of number 13, it is unlucky in the west and its sum 4 is unlucky in China’

MYSELFCON `Gosh, most Chinese products are priced Rs.40. Does it mean that they multiply their bad luck by 10 and sell it here?’

MECON `Ask him, his car number adds upto 9, yet, why so many scratches and dents?’

I `Do you know though it is inauspicious for a black cat to cross you, it is auspicious for one to come towards you’

ICON `Would like to see how he will react if the black cat is a leopard or one with a fully loaded gun? :p, sorry that was a bad joke’

MECON `A cat never stops in its strides, seems to be more confident than human beings’

Me `It is inauspicious to do anything during Rahukala’

MECON `He gives this rule a go by when he has to impress his boss, speculate in shares or get first aid for a wound’

Myself `Also never start any new project during an inauspicious month.’

MYSELFCON `It is time somebody came out with the facts whether the invention process of Aeroplane, Telephone, Electricity, Pencilin, Computer, etc were started during auspicious months or not. Only then I can give this guy a tight slap’

I ` True, we should follow these age old customs scrupulously, thanks for coming guys’

Me, Myself depart and I reclines on his bed and the three together say

HAVE SUPERSTITIONS BUT LET IT NOT RIDICULE SCIENTIFIC SPIRIT

IF YOU CANT GET RID OFF IT DON’T PASS IT ON TO THE NEXT GENERATION
