I was traveling around the Chandigarh, I had to go somewhere around sector 11 then the autowala asked me, “madam! do you know the exact route of the place you want to reach in sector 11”? being a new to this city I replied, no bhaiyya! maybe it is somewhere between 12 and 13 sector. He laughed, as if I cracked a joke, he said there is no 13 sector in this city. I was like what really! but why? This question made me full of curiosity.
I searched on the Internet and found the city was designed by Swiss-French architect Le Corbusier, Polish architect Maciej Nowicki and the American planner Albert Mayer headed by Jane Drew and Maxwell Fry. As they all are foreigners they believed to number 13 an unlucky number. The reason was, according to urban mythology it’s said that Judas Iscariot — the one who betrayed Jesus — was the 13th man to take his place at the table and also, Jesus was crucified on Friday. So many Americans have a fear of the number 13, and each year the even more specific fear of Friday.
However, there are many interesting facts about number 13 you can check it here http://mentalfloss.com/article/23266/13-reasons-people-think-number-13-unlucky
The bizarre fear of number 13 also known as triskaidekaphobia, which is a most popular myth in science without having any scientific reasons or explanations.
Well! God knows whatever be the main reason all we know is do good and have good! What you sow, you reap so believing fully this myth makes no sense. You can find many good examples from the past that are positive in nature happened on 13th. Sometimes it’s just about the coincidences!
