The eighth child is very unlucky and if the child is a son, he is responsible to bring about his father's death. In some regions of India, the eighth child is believed to bring about dangerous consequences for the mother. The remedy of this occurrence is to pass a spinning wheel or Charkha three times around the mother and give it away to the midwife.

In case of mankind, the eighth birth is considered unlucky.
