Today when my daughter said “ Papa , today is 9-2-11” , it made me sit up and reminisce about this special date. Why special , one may ask, as no unfortunate events like the 9/11 or 26/11 are associated with it ! “ because it contains a mathematical sequence, i.e. 9+2 =11.” But then perhaps, the date 2-9-11 would also be special . May be and may not be, as only 9-2-11 reminds us of the 1957 Dev Anand movie “ Nau Do Gyarah" and 2006 movie- Taxi No 9 2 11. And the Hindi idiom, nau do gyarah hona baffles all , as to its origin , though the inadequate explanation given is that one walks or runs away with two legs, which are best symbolized by the figure 11 .
