>Well…I am lying here in my room and thousands(may be lakhs) of people(and some of them are foreigners) are taking a dip in Kurukshetra and some other religious places. I am not against religion, I do have faith in god. What baffles me is the fact that the very same religion considers an eclipse as a bad omen and the same religion says that taking a dip in a holy river like Ganga will help one wash away her/his sins. I think someone should enlighten me over this. I am really at loss as to what to believe.

Anyways, as far I am concerned, it was my bad luck (yes, again) to be not able to watch this ecclipse due to incessant rains in Mumbai for last two thousand years(ok…not that long..)

According to reports, this solar eclipse is the longest total solar eclipse of the 21st century, lasting at most 6 minutes, 39 seconds. Too less time for god to wash away sins of so many people….

I might go to have a shower.

Posting some of the pictures of this eclipse I could find online. Enjoy(And please do not go for a shower just because you have seen a picture of a solar eclipse!!!)

My Ma will kill me away if she sees this post. 😉
