I was born on the same day as…

Posted by Raunak Mahajan on October 11, 2012

While on a two hour drive, I suddenly thought of who I shared my birthday with, and of all those people who is the one I would like to associate myself with. So when I reached home and looked up matching birthdays, the conclusion I reached was Malcolm X.

Have you ever thought, of all the people you share your birthday with, who is the one you associate with? Who is that one person you are proud to say of, you were born on the same day as…?

  1. Try the same day and same year and see what you find. Even more interesting.

      indeed it is! Just discovered that one of my favorite comedians was born the same day and year 🙂
      John, thanks for that fun tip.

    I was born October 26th – the same day as Hillary Clinton, Pat Sajak, Jaclyn Smith, Natalie Merchant. but the one I really identify with is Julie Dawn Cole (Veruca Salt from the original Willy Wonka) who was born the same day and year and just like me….another bad egg…

      hahaha…thats a great association!
      thanks for sharing that and adding to the post 🙂 Really appreciate it!
      I just learned today that I share my b’day with the guy who assassinated Mahatma Gandhi!

  3. What a pretty random thought! But I did google famous people with my same birthday and one of them happens to be Amy Winehouse! RIP!

    • Raunak said

      🙂 I’m glad you liked it!

      Amy Winehouse will always be legendary. You are in great company, musically atleast 🙂

    Interesting taught… I never wandered about this… But you are true, if you have someone as remarkable as Malcolm X, than maybe I have someone on my birthday, so I can be proud, and and brag about… I was born on the day when……was born 🙂

    • Raunak said

      c’mon…you gotta share it with us 🙂

      • Good Deed said

        I just checked… No one interesting at least for me… Donald Rumsfeld (I don’t care about him- I don’t see him as someone great)… few football players (European football)… Day after I’m going to brag about… because I missed it for 8 minutes.
        If I was born 8 minutes later it would be 00:01, July 10th. Ant there is someone special. Croatian homeland, Serbian nationality, World citizen Nikola Tesla.
        I think you’ll agree that I was almoust winner with famous birthdays… I’m just missing 8 min 😛

      • Raunak said

        We will assume that you were born in a different time zone and declare you the winner!!!
        From now on I shall refer to you as Tesla 🙂

      • Good Deed said

        Hahahaha… From different zone, like from different world 🙂 I like winning, always… 😀
        Cheers Malcolm !

      • Raunak said

        Cheers, Tesla! 🙂

    Have to say I was beginning to feel like ‘Good Deed’ – that there was no one either interesting nor with whom I was comfortable being associated with. But a little more digging produced Sigmund Freud (6 May, London). He was a neurologist who founded the discipline of psychoanalysis, (I used to work for a Consultant Psychiatrist) and I love this quote.

    “Civilization began the first time an angry person cast a word instead of a rock.”

    Pity the world doesn’t use just words today!

    • Raunak said

      wow!!! that’s an amazing personality to share your birthday with 🙂

      and a beautiful quote indeed.

      thank you so much for being a part of this post which is turning out to be a very interesting one thanks to contributions such as yours 🙂 brilliant!

  6. have you ever looked into numerology? i’m totally into it. there’s a book called “numerology” by hans decoz. you would LOVE it. and it will make TOTAL sense why you and your favorite people share the same birthdays. it’s because you share a lot of the same strengths and weaknesses – possibly even the same purpose in life! you can also learn more at if you want i’ll do your chart for you. i’m addicted to it. seriously, i’d be happy to!!!! 🙂 🙂 🙂

    • Raunak said

      Hi Vanessa! I haven’t delved into numerology as much as I would like to. I will definitely check that book out. Thank you so much for that link.

      I would love to get a chart made 🙂 thank you so much. What details would I need to provide you with? In return I would be more than glad to practice my astrology further by taking a shot at preparing your Vedic astrology chart and reading it for you. Just send me your date of birth, time of birth and place of birth to the email id mentioned at the bottom of my “About” page.

      And thanks again for bringing such wonderful energies to the blogging world. You rock! 🙂

      • sorry sorry!!! i’ve been radio silent; i’m trying to spend more time with my kiddos and less time on computer. i’ll send you my info. email me at i need your birthday and you name as it appears on your birth certificate. oh, and your name as people call you every day. first and last. however a friend would greet you. i’m so excited! i paid somebody $150 to do my natal chart 2 years ago and he disappeared before delivering the goods! i’m feeling like this is a little bit of balance. 🙂 🙂 🙂

        and thank you for your nice words. especially sweet coming from my first “friend” on wordpress.

        peace peace peace!!!!

      • Raunak said

        hi vanessa 🙂 I’m glad you chose to spend more time away from the computer. I need to do the same.
        see you on email soon 🙂

  7. Very cool!

  8. Sophia Loren – Famous Italian actress
    Debbi Morgan – Dr. Angela Hubbard All My Children
    Aldis Hodge – Alex Hardison on Leverage

    I knew about Sophia Loren and Debbi Morgan but I recently found out about Adlis Hodge. I love the show Leverage and he’s the main reason I watch the show. I knew I liked that guy for a reason. ha ha

  9. Peggy Fleming 🙂 Even though I’d rather go to the dentist than watch figure skating, she is extremely talented.
