The Number Nine seem to have got a big significance in all cultures through time. Be that Nine universal elements from Hindu philosophy in Earth , Air, Water, Fire, Ether, Time, Space, Soul and Mind , Nine planets (Navagraha) , Nine worlds from Norse mythology or the famous saying in cat has “nine” lives.
Mathematically too nine is pretty interesting number as it is the only number where when you multiply any number by 9, then add the resulting digits to reduce them to a single digit, it always becomes a 9. For example, 7 x 9 = 63, reduce 63 to a single digit by adding them together: 6 + 3 = 9. Similarly, 9 x 9 = 81, and 8 + 1 = 9. Or 22 x 9 = 198, 1 + 9 + 8 = 9, and so forth
Someone once told me once that nine is the most tolerant of all numbers as whatever you multiply to it , it folds back to itself and hence rises as being supreme . Given this is the ninth birthday of Vyom, a short poem to celebrate his ninth birthday.
Little Vyom turns “Nine”
Hopefully starting of years where you further shine
Your last single digit birthday,
With lots of gifts and wishes but some important messages also to convey.
As the years pass and you become a youth
Tooth fairy taking the last of your tooth
Keep the innocence and laughter
Use own intelligence and decide thereafter.
Keep your eyes and ears open
Judge friends and foes using acumen
Love and respect others
Make the right “druthers”
Wish you life’s fine and simple pleasures
Let no complexity corrupt life’s best treasures
Finally enjoy to the fullest this day
Wish you a Very Happy Birthday
Nice reading Rahul. Keep it going.
