Thinking aloud…

When I got up quite early today and walked through the semi-lit living room in my in-law’s house, I just didn’t see it coming. Damn, I hate this creepy thing. And I was totally wide awake, when that creepy creature ran over my left foot. OMG !!! OMG !!!! It was a lizard…che…che….I ran into the bathroom to scrub the traces off my foot.

Damn that lizard….it spoiled my mood, just as soon as I got up. This is really a freaky thing to happen to me. I hate it.

I had to even swallow the scream, so that I won’t wake up the whole household !!! ย I hate lizards. Really.

When I was busily scrubbing my feet and cursing the lizard under my breath, my mil came in to ask what happened. I vented out, thanking her for asking me.

Then in 5 mins, she was back, with the Panchangam** in her hand. I wondered what she’s going to tell me now.

So, where are you travelling to ???? – was her question. I was totally confused.

According to our Panchangam, when the lizard touches the foot of a person, it signifies TRAVEL****.

Now, I stopped scrubbing and started smiling. WOW, Travel !!!

That means, I might get a chance to travel to Hyderabad…. ๐Ÿ˜‰ ๐Ÿ˜‰ ๐Ÿ˜‰ ย WOW !!! ย Suddenly, from the non-superstitious ME, I became a superstitious silly woman, to totally believe that the lizard running on my left foot, will take me to Hyderabad. What all I believe, when the results are all goody goody for me. ๐Ÿ˜‰

** Panchangam – Hindu Vedic Calendar – we refer to this for almost everyday.

**** The lizard is considered to be intelligent enough to even predict the future, by forcing itself to fall on a certain body part. The Panchangam lists the significance of such lizard falling !!!! ย Also, we can find lists for the significance of even lizard sounds. It’s an amazing thing to read – how people have related day-to-day happenings with that of lizard falling and lizard sounds. I googled to see that there is something called even Lizard Astrology too…


Yesterday, while travelling in the car, I noticed something. We were at a signal, waiting to go straight.

Now, the car to our right, suddenly took a left turn, forcing us to brake hard.

And the guy to the left, wanted to take a U-Turn. ๐Ÿ™„ We were stuck between two senseless drivers.

It made us to wait for sometime, even though we got our green signal to go straight.

Now, that is some bad driving sense, which is picking up fast in India.


I flicked this from my Sh’s diary….now, SSShhhh, don’t you tell her that I copied it from her. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Sometimes people can’t tell how they feel because people who made them feel like that sit right beside them. ย But then, what will they do at that time ???

Don’t worry !!!! Call Sh anytime, anywhere at 1234567890. ๐Ÿ™‚ ย This is a special number only for you. ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. OMG!! Lizard…eeeeks…I hate that name as well ! and topping it with astrology ??? My God !! These are few things which can happen in India wonly ๐Ÿ˜€

      So,any travel bookings done so far ?? ๐Ÿ˜‰


      1. Yes, Nu, its eeks for me too….I hate lizards !!! GGrrr…and I hated even more, when it fell on my foot.

        That’s our India. Incredible India. ๐Ÿ˜‰

        How I wish to book my tickets to Hyd !!! ๐Ÿ™‚


  1. I have also wondered why and most importantly HOW lizards know so much about us humans and are able to influence our lives! ๐Ÿ˜† Yeah there is a ‘gouli’ (lizard) shastram!! And here we are at a time when they say the universe has been crated by someone only slightly more intelligent than us human and that even we humans can do it (Today’s Indian Express has an interesting article by John Gribbin titled ‘A designer universe) but we still think lizards should guide our actions. This is all so mystifying and amazing, don’t you think Uma??


    1. BTW my relationship with lizards is too well known to document here ๐Ÿ˜› ๐Ÿ˜‰ We have a mutual thing going between us: I hate them and they love me with a passion *shudders*


    2. Its certainly creepy first, Shail. ๐Ÿ˜‰

      But looking at the amount of research gone into this subject of Lizard Astrology, it really is amazing…we humans never stop in finding reasons to to do certain simple routine things. We want to associate all the good things and bad happenings to our Birth Star, to lizard falling, to lizard sounds, to cat crossing and even seeing the crescent on the wrong day !!!

      We are trying to put the blame onto other things. We refuse to believe in ourselves. We certainly deny that good and bad happenings are part and parcel of life and try to transfer the blame to stupid things and they become superstitions, for the whole world to follow.


    1. Thats to save you from taking a blog break…Half of them in that list are on a blog break…so dont even think of being in that. ๐Ÿ™‚

      You are in my reader, which is my bible. ๐Ÿ˜‰


  2. So you up for travel?, interesting ๐Ÿ™‚

    Loved Sh’s writing. Makes perfect sense. I will try her in that number sometime ๐Ÿ™‚

    By the way, what is the best way to get rid of lizards in closed spaces?


    1. Now I dont know, if I’ve to travel to justify the lizard falling. ๐Ÿ˜‰ ๐Ÿ˜‰

      Sh is damn gud with words – she hits on the nail, sometimes, totally frank with her opinions. ๐Ÿ™‚

      Pest control – call them – there are many around here. But avoid using sprays.


  3. ROFL @ the lizard incident ๐Ÿ˜‰ I remember the many times Panchangam came out too. i’d be bringing the roof down screaming “Eeewww a lizard fell on me …ewwww” while the grandma and ma’d be calmly letting me know what that means. Hmmph.

    And yes, am also all for superstition when it’s predicting something i like ๐Ÿ˜‰

    And loved tht thing from Sh’s diary ๐Ÿ˜‰


    1. Absolutely, when we scream on the thot of a lizard grazing our feet or falling on us, they are calmly looking into the panchangam…… ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

      Hai na – me too liked it so much, that I shared it here. Sh is good in her ways of expression.


  4. Lizu (that’s what pinkuda calls lizard) is my sweet messenger who passed on my passage to u to book tickets to hyd.

    btw i always drive lizard out of the house,i don’t like them to be in the house.


  5. Oh..what a thing to happen first thing in the morning!! But if it tunrs out ending in a trip to Hyd..good for you ๐Ÿ™‚ Look.. I’m being superstitious too ๐Ÿ˜€
    Bad driving… definitely on the rise. People dont seem to care about consequences..they just want to race ahead ๐Ÿ˜ฆ
    Loved Sh’s words…


    1. Thanks Priya…I am totally banking on that prediction… ๐Ÿ˜‰ ๐Ÿ˜‰

      Sh has got some ways with words…will post some more of it, when I sneak into her diary… ๐Ÿ˜‰


  6. Its fun to watch the below url:

    Octopus Paul predicted SPAIN to be the world cup 2010 (soccer) winner!! It also consistently predicted the winners in the qrtr & semi finals and earlier matches!!!

    Maybe v should get our gouli (lizard) to do more ………. YEAH, u got it!! CRICKET ofcourse!!!! What else it could be in our games???


    1. Yeah, now I remember the world’s obsession to some animal’s prediction…LOL…mine is nothing I guess… ๐Ÿ™‚

      Probably yes – Paul for soccer – Our Gouli for Cricket !!! LOL !!!


  7. Poor lizard ! It had to go through your foot early in the morning and see that scared face of yours. Wonder what its M-I-L wouldve said !!!!

    “Oh, you stepped on an old humans foot ?? According to our lizard vedic calendar, you go straight to hell and will be reincarnated as a fly”


    1. After it gets reincarnated as a fly, it goes straight to the spidey Vimmu and bugs him totally, till he runs around MAD !!!! GGGGrrrrr……. ๐Ÿ‘ฟ ๐Ÿ‘ฟ


  8. ufff I hate lizards too but in hating them its my sister who is the king errr queen

    recently about a month or so back she was driving her car with dad sitting with her and she was a lizard in the car in the side, can u guess what she did… she jumped out of the moving car when she was driving… i had no words when I heard this…. thankfully the car was slow and dad put hand brakes immediately so no one was injured…

    she ofcourse got a piece of mind from me but she hasnt sat in her car again yet…….. she hates them so much


    1. OMG !!! OMG !!! Monu, did she really do that – jump out of a moving car ???? Che, how did the lizard get into a car ??? My God, now I’ll check and re-check before getting into the car…


    They scare me tooo!! I love winters when they are hibernating. But sadly they are roaming freely all around in this season! ๐Ÿ˜ฆ


    1. LOL @ Liz Aunties…. ๐Ÿ˜† ๐Ÿ˜‰

      I know these lizards are running scot free everywhere…here, being so humid in Chennai adds to their scary numbers…. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ


  10. OS its good , now you dont have to run away fro mthe lizard Rather let it touch you wherever it wants and then you will know wht it means…

    Next time when you want to travle make sure you run after the lizard he he hehe ๐Ÿ™‚ what say


    1. OOOHH…thinking abt it gives me the creeps…I cant even handle the accidental fall of a lizard on a feet, just imagine a forced jump….OMG !!! How can u ever think like that ???? ๐Ÿ™„


  11. Hmmm… I had no idea about Lizard and there significance. All I remember, it used to really scare me.. and I remember someone tellnig me, there tails grow back. dont know if its true. I should google.

    Now, we call it Panchang… and yes, for travel, auspicious days and above all….. entering a new home, starting new business is governed by this.


    1. Thank you…will let u all know if that prediction came true. ๐Ÿ˜‰

      Oh yeah…senseless driving is just too bad – for the ppl who really want to drive sane and reach home safe.


  12. Lizard astrology??? ๐Ÿ˜ฏ Now I’ve heard EVERYTHING!!!!! Cant believe it!!!

    Hmm the right guy wanted to turn left and the left wanted to turn right…and u were stuck in between… ๐Ÿ™„ hmmmm ๐Ÿ˜


    1. I know…our astrology has so many aspects to it, sometimes its really confusing.

      I was totally spell-bound by what Sh wrote…I needed to share it with u all. ๐Ÿ™‚


  13. I am sooooooooo scared of lizards, but wait a minute, I not talking about the household one, but the typical Australian desert ones ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€
    Yeah, those baby dinosaur like ones ๐Ÿ˜‰ ๐Ÿ˜‰

    By the way what would, a lizard falling on your head signify? Just curious for it has happened to me countless times ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€

    Loved your daughter’s writing, she’s cool and very good with logic and words ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€

    Naughty mum reading little Sh’s diary?? ๐Ÿ˜‰ ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Enjoy ๐Ÿ˜€


    1. So u are not scared of the house lizards, huh ??? Wow, one brave woman !!! ๐Ÿ™‚

      Oh, I am terribly scared of those Oz desert ones….OMG !!!

      According to the Panchangam, it signifies Rebel / outbreak / uprise – something of that sort. Tell me if it tallies…it’ll give me more hope to believe in my travel. ๐Ÿ˜‰

      Yeah, yeah…I love to peek into their diaries to see what they write…sometimes they dont share it with me. ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ˜‰


    1. Now, dont u scare me by sending more lizards !!! LOL !!! Me really want to come for a few days (or rather permanently ๐Ÿ˜‰ ) let me see…. ๐Ÿ˜‰ ๐Ÿ˜‰


  14. LOL!!!! we have astrology with everything ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€

    our people’s traffic sense is close to dumb.. they just love to move their vehicle from one end to other for no reason ๐Ÿ‘ฟ

    Your daughter’s writing is nice.. its true too ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚


    1. Yes Kanagu, astrology is really so dumb sometimes…what all ppl believe in !!!!

      Thank you for liking Sh’s writings….but becos I flicked from her diary, I cant even tell her about this. ๐Ÿ˜‰


  15. Hyderabad! Yes! ๐Ÿ˜€ You’ve got to make it now!
    I HATE lizards :o! I would have screamed and probably fainted, yuck! The also say that if a cockroach sits on you, you get new clothes! ๐Ÿ˜€ What fundas huh!?


    1. Really…never knew abt that one…. ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ˜‰ Cockroaches are something I hate too !!!

      Am seriously thinking of one Hyd trip – let me see… ๐Ÿ™‚


  16. YUCK. double yuck.. i remember you telling me this! well, if it means you’ll travel then why don’t you stop by Dubai first? think about it ๐Ÿ˜€ come see sam sam!


  17. So did the Lizard’s prediction come true yet ๐Ÿ™‚

    I can’t stand the sight of lizards, though these days, I try to pretend to ‘like’ them because I don’t want daughter getting crazy fears. This time on holiday, madam, caught sight of a lizard on a wall, at someone’s place, and she refused to sleep in that room. No matter what I did ๐Ÿ˜ฆ
