SHARED BIRTHDAYS

 

How unique is a birthday? Since it can be any of 366 dates, I had assumed that the chance of meeting another with the same birthday is one in 366 and hence quite rare. So I was surprised when I came across a statement that any group of 28 persons is likely to have at least one pair sharing a birthday. I decided to check with the mbfamily birthdates. Looking for 3 to 4 pairs, I discovered much more!

 

Three persons, Shubha, Prakash and Dr Madhu have their birthday on Oct 11

Dr Madhusudan and Lata were born on Jan13

Amrita shares Suresh’s birthday- Jan 30

Sachin shares Jyothsna’s birthday-Mar 21

Madhukar shares Ramesh’s date of birth-May2

Shyam shares Sughosh’s birthday-May 15

Madhavi and Anandrao were born on July, 6

Neha shares Sharad’s birthday-July28 

Sammit shares Sanjeev’s birthday-Aug 26

Guru shares his father’s birthday-Oct 5

Jaggu and Vidya were born on Nov 19, which was also Indira Gandhi’s birthday

Kavita shares her birthday with Sachin Tendulkar on Apr 24.

While the first day of the year is still open, the last day, Dec31, is Dr Jayanth’s birthday.

Jagadish’s birthday is on the last day of the financial year, Mar31.

 

Madhavi has a symmetrical date of birth-6-7-76

Sumanth’s date of birth is 2-2, Kamala’s7-7 and Roopa’s10-10

 

There would be other interesting points that I could have missed. Even then, the list of coincidences is impressive!

However, I am still among the majority, whose birth date is not shared - not yet!!

Dear Raghu mama,

         Ravivaar seems to be innovating itself throughout. The crossword was fun exercise. Meanwhile, I have created crosswords for an intercolegiate Cultural festival that my college hosted. I picked up a useful software to build crosswords.It is called Eclipse and is a rather small program. http://www.eclipsecrossword.com .It creates the grids once you key in the words and it can also be designed to make it interactive.

 

I have attached one of my (amateurish, I must warn) attempts.  It is a Business Crossword. please let me know how you find it.

 

Regards

Pavan
