Vata Pournima is the day when married ladies fast the entire day to pray for their husband’s long life and have him as their husband for the next 7 lives. I wonder why there is no such fast for men;-)

Anyway this blog chapter is not about debating on it or explaining the occasion. As a part of my daily routine I listen to Jaggu and Tarana on the Good Morning Mumbai Show on Go 92.5FM, daily from 7.00-11.00 a.m.

The duo is a complete riot on radio and brings you tons of laughter with their witty conversations and takes on current events. I think it’s a show everyone must listen too.

They do a section called ‘Mumbai Voices’ where they ask the junta to sms/call in expressing their views about a topic raised that day. Today they asked ‘If all married ladies would want their husband for 7 lives’.

The answers poured in. Most said No; after all variety is the spice of life, some said Yes, cause there is no man like him and we are very happy.

A few had innovative answers, but the one that caught the attention was this:

“This is my Seventh Life!”

Somebody has been counting for a long time now!!!
