Paul's call stands tall

The recent FIFA World Cup witnessed the birth of an overnight celebrity — Paul, the Octopus. With its magical tentacles, it not only predicted the outcome of the games but eventually, also the winner of the tournament. The eight-legged wonder had fans from all over the world eagerly waiting for it to give the final word. Then there were also angry fans, who wanted to eat it up when its choice didn’t go their way. This trend gave birth to many more prophecies from parrots, rabbits and even an Australian crocodile.

Even as the City is racing towards development, one still finds astrologers sitting under the trees doing what they know best. Metrolife asked youngsters whether they feel such predictions hold any importance. While many said that they don’t believe in such gimmicks, there were also those who put their faith in such predictions whole-heartedly.
