The Lunar Eclipse – And the Year 2010

The New Year 2010 had just started with a partial Lunar Eclipse. Eclipses have always been viewed with concerns and many a myth is related to it. In Japan, some people still cover wells to avoid being poisoned by the disease of the moon during an eclipse. Native residents of Arctic regions are known to turn over their utensils to avoid contamination. In other cultures, people yell at the moon during an eclipse, or they bang pots or even shoot into the air.

And having lunar eclipse right minutes after the New Year eve shudders me. May be it is a Divine warning or an indicator of something. I hope and pray it to be a positive indicator – an indicator of good days ahead, God willing for every one of us, who have seen some very bad days in 2009. We really need peace and love for we have had enough of bad days.

PS: While the year 2010 started with lunar eclipse, it ends with another eclipse, which occurred on 21 December. Read and see its video at:

There's only one valid point in this article, and if people are too stupid to see it, I won't tell them what it is.
Let us all express our opinions here. Do you think random babbles like this should be allowed to hang in threads or should they be erased? Share your opinions.
There was a story about this in our newspaper. People come to steal other people's content from blogs and then publish on their own sites.
I'm not sure I agree with you on some key points. Do you allow guest blog posts? I'd love to write on this topic.
