Clash of the Titles! What movie does that remind you of? Yes, Clash of the Titans.

The 9umber Game

The 9umber Game

This piece is written to direct your attention towards the importance of numbers in life. Let’s perform a little exercise, close your eyes for 5 minutes, to visualize 1 asset you would like to possess in the near future.

Perhaps, your imagination travels towards a recently launched car; cherishing the design, comfort, and power of the vehicle. You start assessing its speed limit, mileage, fuel efficiency, capacity, price, and EMIs.

In the very next moment, numbers begin to conjure up in your mind. In this example, the car can be replaced with a house, diamonds, electronic gadgets, and the list goes on.
