A Chapter Of Accidents

The last 2 weeks were...weird, to say the least. Call it "shani ka prakop" or anything else you like, but something was very wrong somewhere; because all around me I could see people falling ill!

Let me see, first my friend developed a strange stomach disorder and had to be hospitalised. And to think that just the day before this we were merrily chatting over a cup of coffee.

Then, my brother had to leave for Mumbai all of a sudden and returned 2 days later with a fever and a temperature of 105 degrees.

And the day before Rakhi, my friend and I decided to get some mehendi...she developed a severe skin allergy and her hand looks like Frankenstein's. Imagine, mehendi!! And according to the doctor, that happened to 1 out of 100 people!

Another friend of mine got migraine attacks and had to undergo a full body CT scan a day before his engagement.

One of my close friend's brother was admitted to the hospital for his stone operation.

Two of my classmates were down with viral fever last week.

And the other day, I came across Stone's blog and discovered he was covered in red-ant bites!

Is it the planets, or is it just me? I'm completely clueless! I wonder who's next...?? :S

Maybe the weather change? I know its weird how everyone is falling ill but maybe its just kind of weird coincidence or something. I will pray though that everything will be all right
