11-11-11 - 11th day of November 2011

Put the simplest of Q to people :  What is today ?  - some may not recall immediately correct, some might try to think too much trying to recall the historic significance or try to attach some relevance …. Days follows days.. just as hours would pass by without you having to do anything…  still certain days are given undue importance and honour.

Tomorrow perhaps is going to be another one !!  All years have  365 days  (leap years have another day extra) – so does 2011.  The month of November has 30 days (all the time) – tomorrow is 11th day of November 2011

There are some hyping that tomorrow is so significant and that it would herald great things and by the same breath, for some it is a day which could mark the end of the World !!!  

Conveniently read in a manner that you want to project : 11.11.11 (why is it not 11th Nov 2011 or 11/11/2011 ?) – the date is a perfect same numbered palindrome….  (any same numbered would be !) – that way it can only happen on one day every 100 years !!  If you want to add something more :

At 11 sec 11 min past 11 O’ clock it would be: 
 11:11:11:-11-11-11 ………..

- at that second, the time, minute, date, month, year all will be a perfect same numbered palindrome.   Understand that 11th Nov is being celebrated as Armistice day in many countries. Armistice is a situation in a war where the warring parties agree to fight; not necessarily the end of war, but a cessation of hostilities, an attempt made to negotiate a lasting peace.  It is derived from the Latin arma, meaning weapons and statium, meaning a stopping.

For some, it is a  day of spiritual significance stating 11 has mystic powers.  As usual the tinseldom is trying to cash on it.  11-11-11 is a film written and directed by  American film director  - Darren Lynn Bousman.  The film is a horror-thriller set on 11:11 on the 11th day of the 11th month and concerning a entity from another world that enters the earthly realm through Heaven's 11th gate. The film is set to be released on November 11, 2011.

The storyline reportedly is about a famed American author who travels from US to Barcelona after the tragic death of his wife and child to reunite with his estranged brother.  The life gets mired into strange occurrences with constant sightings of no. 11.  the hero realises that this no.   holds a horrific meaning not only to himself but possibly to all – he finds that it is not a date, it’s a warning……..

To most of us, tomorrow, will be just another day !!
