Muscat: Sunita Makes You Sit Up And Take Notice

Peden Doma Bhutia / Oman Time
Muscat, Aug 3:
Call it mumbo jumbo, or rubbish it if you like, but when tarot card reader Sunita Menon took centre-stage yesterday, the crowd at the Indian Embassy Auditorium sure took notice.

As part of Indian Embassy’s Colours of Independence 2009 celebrations, commemorating India’s 63rd Independence Day, Sunita is in town for an interactive show.

After Indian ambassador Anil Wadhwa’s welcome address, the stage was thrown open to the discerning audience to question Sunita.

From recession and 9/11 to kalyug and Doomsday, Sunita answered every question that came her way. And the audience didn’t stop at that.

A gentleman wanted her opinion on whether he should paint his house yellow. Perhaps, he took her “Let’s have some fun today. You can shoot out the most bizarre questions,” remark a little too seriously

Imbibe discipline

When asked whether she would help the Board of Cricket Control in India to select the right colour for the Indian team, she quipped, “No colour will help them. They just need to stop behaving like little boys and imbibe some discipline.”

The audience, which had a fair share of corporates, was all ears when Sunita explained how graphology, the study of handwriting, would help them hire the right person for the job. She said, “Handwriting is your personal logo, the strokes of the word reflect your state of mind. If you want to hire somebody strong you can learn a lot about him/her through the signature. A bad handwriting doesn’t mean a bad person.”

Answering a question on spiritual shopping and whether there’s an overdose of self-professed pundits and astrologers, Sunita compared the trend to TV shows. “Earlier, we had access to only three or
four shows, but today we have more than 50 channels to choose from. You watch everything and then stick to the shows you like. In the same manner, you’ll go back to those whose predictions suit you. So while you’re at it, have fun shopping,” she said.

But she did warn people against believing in superstitions and blindly following old wives’ tales. She said superstitions are based on personal experiences and had no basis in real life. And for those who thought rebirth and reincarnation were just for the movies, Sunita’s talk sure must have given them some food for thought.

So impressed was one of the listeners that he even made her an offer for an annual contract for predictions.

Though the soothsayer politely declined the offer one outcome is for sure — when she goes back to India she’ll have a lot more fans to add to the list.
