Maybe It's Meant To Be like that !

It is holiday season… with Christmas trees and (C)Hanukkah candles everywhere.

Whenever I see (C)Hanukkah candles... which is a series of 9 candles. I remember when I encountered it for the first time. It was an electronic setup at my workplace and only few of nine candles were lightened. I thought something might be wrong with few lights (electric bulbs). …but to my surprise I encountered the same thing at different places. How can it be that no one cared to fix and few bulbs are not working at all places! I wondered there must be something about this phenomenon of few candles not lightened up… till I learned that that’s how it is supposed to be. Starting from right one additional candle is lightened each day till 8th day...

Many things that we find odd or unable to understand in life... maybe that’s how they are meant to be. If it looks wrong everywhere and repetitively then probably there is something right about it! :)
