Does Name Spelling Change bring Good Luck ?

Among all mystical foretelling systems , numerology or predicting via numbers is considered easiest, so all failed professionals in other fields, try this profession as it requires minimum study and calculations and trouble free income from poorly informed advice seekers.

As far as I am aware , there is no  Indian classical reference for predicting, using numbers alone. This whole numerology prediction came to India from western countries in last century.

For more than 5000 years,  India has been having a consistent and rich astrology prediction system on sound mathematical   model , so, numerology's predictive ability falls at last level to an average Indian after planetary astrology , palmistry and Samudrik Shaastra ( body signs ).

  The recent upsurge in appeal of numerology in India , can be attributed to satellite TV channels in last 15 years and Mr. Sanjay B Jumaani, the TV age numerologist for Bollywood, swears by numerology for  creating favourable change in destiny. 

Following link gives his detailed interview on his understanding of numerology : ( Remember this interview is part of publicity agreement of astrologer with this Times group website)   

I have following reservations against use of numerology for  prediction :

1. Mr. Jumaani says it is 5000 years old system . My point is that numbers may be in use for last 5000 years but their use for prediction is not very old and modern use dates back to only couple of centuries in western countries .See the link on wiki

2. Numerology is not an INDIAN system and it has come out mostly from old Jewish / Christian religion.

3. Numbers from 1 to 9 are used , which are neutral in nature. There is no use of zero perhaps due to its late invention.

4. The biggest issue in numerology is assigning number value to all letters in alphabet in sequence . Now, every language script has different numbers of letters in its alphabets like Hindi , Hebrew , Arabic , Japanese, English and so on . So, sound created by "B" letter in English will have number 2 for B but in Hindi , ब ( B ) will have different number assignment . 

   Therefore , the whole numerology falls flat without any logically sound structure and it plays only on the probability factor .
Changing Destiny by Spelling Change ?

 Even if Mr Jumaani's claim to get favourable destiny just by adding / deleting a letter or number here and there , is assumed correct , then world's problems can be solved in a jiffy without much cost or effort.  Unfortunately , Mr. Jumaani is not very sure about favourable change. I quote from his interview :

"Question : Can one have a bad number  and still be lucky?

Answer : In our science we say that if your numbers are right then you are lucky. There are certain numbers which are materialistic and denote wealth, health and other things.

And if there are people who do not have good numbers yet seem to be very fortunate, then I can only say, it might happen because of somebody else's good number, it could be your spouse, your child or your house number....   "

 As per Mr. Jumaani, if somebody can be still lucky without a lucky number ,then other way also it may be true i.e. you may get a good number from numerologist for you and still remain unlucky !

So, Mr. Jumaani himself is not clear whose name and number is to be changed for changing destiny . 

For this, a numerologist may keep on experimenting by changing spellings of your name , spouse name, children's name, dog's name, city's name, apartment's name,flat number and so on . Probably,  in the mean time, favourable change comes naturally and credit will go to numerologist.  

   Media brought him in limelight in 2000-2002 period for his contribution to Bollywood and Ekta Kapoor's TV serial naming , which all had starting with letter 'K" . 

Bollywood is highly superstitious and it believes in everything from " Muhoorat Shot" ,numerology, astrology, tarot cards , Ajmer Sharif , Golden Temple , Vaishnodevi and any other shrine or system. 

So, when TV serial or movie is hit , everybody including numerologist , advertises his claim to fame but despite all this , nobody shares blame for 80 % movies , which are flop on box office . 

Jumaani ji and Ektaa ( Ekta ) Kapoor is still there in Bollywood and letter "K" can still be used but why there is no blockbuster film and serial in last many years ?  

Numerology system is not only full of foolish assumptions and experimentations, but it has inherent limitations, like which calendar and date system you use for date of birth ,or name is to be written in Roman alphabets only and not in any other script and so on... 

In the interview also, he warns  that bad destiny may follow after name change and he tests it 5 times ( How he does that ? )  before final change.

So, dear readers , see yourself the possibility of correct predictions and changing destiny by number or name change.

 People keep on asking me about numerology predictions and I have written this article to state my views on this. In my opinion, planetary astrology (ज्योतिष), palmistry (हस्तरेखा)  and  your body-signs ( सामुद्रिक शास्त्र ) are the three predictive methods in decreasing order of accuracy for predictions.
