    In India too, Deja Vu except (4), toota hua kaanch is considered an omen of bad luck, same with spilled milk.

    When a crow crows at some ones window, it announces the arrival of guests.

    If a cat is heard crying, its a bad omen.

    At times, there is fluttering of eyes. (it happens to a lot of people) even that indicates the happening of good and bad in their lives (good if right eye flutters and bad the other way or something like that)

    If there is itiching on the right palm (left for female) you can get some money or favours.

    If a lizard makes a sound when you make a statement, it shows that what you said is true.

    Never call one back when the person is leaving the house.

    Never wash the front couryard immediately after someone leaves the house.

    If you choke on your food, someone is thinking bad about you.

    If you hiccup, it means you stole something.

    If a cat hits you on the head with its feet, you will experience extreme poverty.

    Not so sure about the 8th one, it may not cause Vitilgo every time but certain species of fish are known for producing a chemical which may cause it, & drinking milk after eating fish may cause indigestion as a consequence of different proteins getting mixed. however, tried that once & nothing happened. But this definitely is one myth which leaves a lot space to be either busted or proven as a fact with science.

    :agree::agree:
    same is the case with cats


    animals can feel the vibrations far better than humans and thus can predict tsunami etc . But this does not mean when they cry something bad is going to happen :no:
