It was in August 2004 that Oommenchandy first became Chief Minister.
In August 2011 his political fortunes have been put to test.
August is the 8th month.
Incidentally,it was on 8th that the Thiruvananthapuram special vigilance court’s order was issued.
Another interesting factor:the day was ruled by the birth star of Chandy(anizham).
Anizham is the 17th star (1+7=8).
