City hospitals have been getting a number of enquiries for deliveries on this day from expectant parents, and as many as nine deliveries are scheduled for Wednesday at Apollo Cradle. "We've scheduled the deliveries this week, depending on the health condition of the mothers. A few are expected to take place on December 11, but we're not pushing for it,'' said Dr Beena Jaysingh, consultant gynaecologist.
Nirupama GN (name changed), who will deliver her first bundle of joy on 11-12-13, says it's an interesting and easy date to remember. "We don't see any significant relevance of this date, numerological or otherwise. But for me, it's just a coincidence. Neither did we plan the pregnancy, nor was I ever advised by my doctor to do it this way," she says.
Gunasheela Surgical and Maternity Hospital is also getting a number of queries for deliveries on this day. "One pregnant woman has her due date on December 20. She is just 4'1" tall, while her baby weighs 3.1kg. It's her fifth pregnancy, and she's lost her earlier children. We don't want to take chances and suggested that she get admitted at the earliest. She chose December
11," said Dr Devika Gunasheela, infertility specialist and managing director of the hospital.
Three such deliveries are scheduled at Fortis Hospitals too. "My wife is due to deliver on December 14. But we thought it could be done on December 11, and the doctors agreed. My kid's birthday will be easy to remember," says Younes Matheen, whose wife Shaheen Salma, 32, will deliver their second child.
However, not every hospital is game for such requests "We don't believe in making advance bookings. If a pregnant woman happens to deliver on this day, then fine," said a spokesperson from Manipal Hospitals.
The city's wedding halls were booked up long ago. "We started getting a number of calls about bookings for December 11 long ago. We didn't realize the importance of the day then. There's a wedding slated for Wednesday afternoon, and a varapuja ceremony for another couple in the evening," said Vasan T, proprietor of Gowri Shankar Kalyana Mantap at Rajajinagar.
Chandana Mutgi, 25, is one of the many entering wedlock on 11-12-13. "My marriage was fixed eight months ago and we wanted it on this day. Thankfully, it's also said to be an auspicious day," said the MCA graduate who's marrying Srikanth Pothnis.
According to Chandana's cousin Sathyabhodha KS, the wedding was planned that way. "It's the second time a big event is happening on an interesting day in our family. My daughter's birthday is 22-11-2000. She is our millennium baby," adds Sathyabhodha.
Astrologer Daivajna K N Somayaji says it's just like any other day and doesn't bear much importance. "Neither is it auspicious nor inauspicious. It has no special significance as per the Hindu calendar," he says.
