Can you pronounce “Devgn”? Neither can I. No, this is not some linguistic issue. This name is as difficult to utter in India as it is elsewhere. Yet, I do not know if the actor that holds this surname cares. What is more important is that this name is bringing him luck – at least according to the numerologists.
It is not for me to measure how popular numerology is in India; it is certain that some ridicule it as much as others believe in it. This text, therefore, should not be read as spreading a stereotypical vision in which numerology is a common and undisputed belief in India. What I will focus on is a trend only – a fashion for numerology among some Indian celebrities – and that trend should not be generalized.
