The power of 3
Men in triple roles

Three may not always be a crowd. In fact, it seems, three is the ideal number in more ways than one. You could say that thrice!

Historically, the number is one of India's oldest symbols, "Chintamani" representing happiness, and can be found gracing the Temple of Heaven in Beijing, the Three Treasures of Tibet, on the breast of the Christ in Memling's famous painting and the Madonna of Strasbourg.
Universally the number three also has mathematical significance. It was popularised in the early 20th century by the Russian-born artist, philosopher and scientist Nicholas Roerich. If you're the type to muddle your way through things, you'll know what I mean when I say it usually takes three tries to get anything right. Even Microsoft, indisputably a global technology conglomerate, had to tweak its Word 97 a couple of times before Service Release 2 got the thumbs-up. There are three dimensions to a solid object A triangle has three sides, and three corners (love or geometrical), In baseball there are three strikes, and in cricket there is a multiple of three with a winning sixer. In tennis there's love, game and match. In a relationship there is love, courtship and marriage. And as Hindi Bollywood actress Aishwarya Rai may suggest, it's Salman, Vivek and now Abhishek. Coincidence or proven method there is a random force out there somewhere which includes the number three.

The number represents a triad or trinity which spiritually means body, mind and soul. It's still a subject of interpretation to many a nexus of the past, present and future incorporating all aspects of the science, arts and religion. The principal Hindu goddesses Laxmi, Durga and Saraswati (wealth, power, and knowledge) are a testament to the inherent philosophy behind the number three. In Christianity there is the father, the son and the Holy Ghost.


On a tangent, the Earth is the third planet from the Sun. There are three primary colors. A sandwich has three layers and loops are the third figure in Figure Skating. Symbolic logic compromises of: and, or, not. Atoms are made of electrons, protons, and neutrons and energy is mass, speed of light and a square. Although our next numerical palindrome would occur only in 30,03,3003 the number three shall persevere. Let's hope the celebration of three continues to grow from strength to strength. ShaadiTimes caught up with some interesting threes in Mumbai recently.

He's Page Three's glamour guy and a fixture on Mumbai's party circuit for almost thirty years. Restaurateur, businessman and socialite, Kishen Mulchandani, can be seen attending three parties in one night at times. "Before modern consumerism swept through the mind, relationships were based on the body, soul and a healthy friendship," believes Mulchandani.. There's more to Mulchandani than the superficial glamour, glitz, and chutzpah. He says, "Although Page Three has become a world phenomenon, everyone who makes it on that page is doing something in his or her own way," suggests Mulchandani, a restaurant owner known for his business savvy, sense of humour and joie de vivre. Known to have a sensitive nature Mulchandani feels, "True compatibility has to be mentally, spiritually, and physically." Well that's another three!
