Friday the 13th is considered to be unlucky in Western superstition. In India, thanks to centuries of colonialism, many Indians exposed to such ideas also consider it to be unlucky. I personally have not done so but often wonder once a year.
An article today in an online newspaper has triggered a memory for me.
It was on Friday the 13th of March 2009 that my friend of forty eight years who was my wife for forty of them died.
Could there really be something sinister about Friday the 13th?
