‘Muhurat’ babies

I had heard about this earlier. But never thought it would become so popular. Delivering babies at an auspicious time, apparently, has become a fad.

A few days back, Hindustan Times had an article on this. Gynecologists working at odd hours to do C-sections during the ‘muhurat’ fixed by astrologers and taking rest during ‘raahu kaal’! Once followed only by the affluent class, this nonsense has now been picked up by the middle-class. Great! Way to go!

Safe C-sections are possible because of advances in science. We are using the science to follow unscientific practices!

I hope someone will do study on these ‘muhurat’ babies and find out how they excel in their lives. Just curious. :-)
