Lucky Number?

In Islam, the number 786 is considered lucky. That explains why N. Krishnamoorthy, a South Indian man who is not Muslim; but, Hindu, collects anything and everything that carries the number. He's been doing so since 1994, when he pulled money out of his wallet and saw that the serial number began with 786. He has at least 300 currency notes and hundreds of rail way tickets with the number on it. The railway worker says his hobby has brought him luck because, despite a low salary, he has been able to buy a house and send his two sons to good schools.
