The final

I am writing at the zeroth hour and after this there is zero posts to write for the challenge. Additionally, zero was invented by an Indian called Aryabhata. The last sentence wouldn't make much of a difference but then zero is supposed to not make a difference.

**Quirk of Life**for 2013 is Zero! It had to be zero and nothing else.I am writing at the zeroth hour and after this there is zero posts to write for the challenge. Additionally, zero was invented by an Indian called Aryabhata. The last sentence wouldn't make much of a difference but then zero is supposed to not make a difference.

So what does this guy has which others don't? It has nothing. That is what makes it special. It describes nothingness. You are quantifying nothingness.

It sits right at the middle of the number line. It defeats its only contender 1 in this. It doesn't have a negative counterpart unlike 1. It is unique. But the value it brings to table remains 0.

It remains at the beginning of most things in life. You start with zero. You are born a zero. A new day starts with zero.

In the game of cricket, you can never score zero runs. If you have a zero against your name, it means you haven't scored and it will called as a duck.

Zero is the only number on which if you perform a mathematical operation, it will result in infinity.It is the divide by zero operation!

If you try teaching a kid about numbers,you show 1 bead and say that is 1. Then you show 2 beads and say it is 2. But what about zero? Only at the end, when child understands the concept of numbers, you would run a scenario that when all the beads are removed, then you say there are

Thus although the value of zero is 0, it is invaluable. Thus like zero, this challenge has brought immense pleasure to me. The only place I have never wanted a 0 was on my mark-sheet.

I do intend to write Reflections post for this. However, to present a gist, it has made me aware of my own strength and failings. More importantly, it has exposed me to so many wonderful people and their varied thoughts on so many different subjects! Thanks a ton to A-Z Hosts! It was truly a wonderful effort from you guys! Cheers!
