What are those numbers of ? In Tarun Bharat these numbers appear every day on the last page or last but one. But there is nothing mentioned about those numbers as what are they off.
Yes most of you got it correct.
They are MATKA numbers.
They are results of opening and closing of Mataka figures. In the fifties there was cotton feature number game based on the fluctuating prices on cotton market in US. In those days people used to minutely observe the cartoons appearing in English daily s and bet on numbers. Mataka is a very interesting game.There are hundreds of theories practiced by punters. It is almost a number game. There is one sun and nine planetes [grahas]. Sun indicates ZERO. A powerful digit. One to nine digits indicate nine grahas [planets]. Many a punters refer panchangs and bet.
