poetry on number one, luck and lonliness

11/1/11 official day to sit your exam
This one’s for the number geeks. It’s 11/1/11 today, and an auspicious date, according to numerologists.
“Numero Uno symbolises success. Primarily, the Number One deals with strong will, positivity abd pure energy,” says a Delhi-based numbers expert. “It reflects new beginnings, and purity. The symbolic meaning of Number One is further clarified when we understand One represents both kinds of action: physical and mental,” he says, adding that it’s the sort of date that can make dreams come true.
“Make a wish today,” he says. “One encourages us our action will be rewarded in kind.”
Perhaps. But for many others, it’s just another day. “Ones are the loneliest numbers. 11/1/11 11:11,” said a Tweet by a user called AshSimmonds.
