Subject: [JyotishGroup] A former Indian Prime Minister dead
Date: Thu, 23 Dec 2004 18:36:37 IST
A former Indian prime minister, P.V.Narasimha Rao ( 28
June 1921 born at 13/02 at warangal with Kanya lagna 24/47
and Moon in Meena at 10/33 died today sometime after 4pm.
He was the only non Nehru-Gandhi dynasty prime minister
from Congress party to complete a full five year term after
a turbulent no confidence motion in July 1993 about which
I had made a prediction in January issue of GENTLEMAN magazine
That became a famous JNM scandal of Indian politics. He
has been todate, the only prime minister of India who was
convicted by a court of law and later, acquitted by a higher
Todate, he has been the best scholar prime minister of
India and linguist. He was a born orator. I have rarely
met men with such sharp intelligence. I worked closely with
him during my service career when he was the Chairman of
the Central Government's Public Accounts Committee and I
had to brief him in his private chamber in 1978-80 period.
Politicians have fast uptake which they develop because
of the demands made on them day in and day out but to understand
a subject which he never knew before, to understand it so
fast and then to reel off most pertinent questions in the
meetings of the Public Accounts Committee needs extra intellectual
gifts which he had.
He had once addressed the US Senate and silenced the US
critics who wanted India to sign Nuclear Non Proliferation
Treaty by starting his speech with a reference to an incident
in the life of Mahatma Gandhi. The sychophants of the Nehru-Gandhi
dynasty in India made his life very uncomfortable but how
he survived his difficult five year term is a miracle.
It was during his time that the story of India's economic
liberalization became a reality because of which there is
so much economic prosperity. Who will say all that so honestly
even now when he is dead ?
He dug out the present Indian prime minister, Manmohan
Singh, out of the dungeons of bureacracy, made him the Finance
Minister and gave him full freedom to rescue Indian economy
from its worst phase in recent memory.
His is a remarkable story of a man who had packed off his
baggage and was going to his birth place when the death
of Rajiv Gandhi brought the greatest opportunity to become
the Prime Minister of India.
Jolts and upsets in the career of a government servant is
uncommon. In the life of a politician, it is uncommon to
come across a person where such surprises are not almost
a periodical occurence. Is it the feature of only Indian
democracy or also of the USA and England?
We are familiar with the total ruination of the career
of Sir Anthony Eden of
England who succeeded Winston Churchill but, who faded out
of politics after the Suez crisis.
The youngest brother of John F Kennedy got involved in an
accident and a sex scandal. From then onwards, Edward Kennedy
has had to remain contented with the post of a Senator only
and has been out of the race for the post of the President
of the USA.
In India, in our democracy, it has not been so. Indira
Gandhi swept back to power after the National Emergency
of 1975, after a brief stay out of the south block, when
the entire nation thought that it was the end of her career.
A career of strangest surprises in recent years has been
that of P. V. Narasimha Rao who had decided to pack off
to his native town in 1991 and, retire from politics but,
in the middle of the year, found himself catapulted into
the post of the Indian Prime Minister. What is it in his
horoscope which can explain two strange twists in his career:
the first his most unexpected rise and now, in 1997, a most
inglorius anticlimax with total loss of power and so many
court cases affecting his position and prestige, as has
not happened to any Prime Minister?
The straight and direct explanation from his Kanya lagna
horoscope is that his 10th house from the lagna contains
the 8th lord, Mars and the 12th lord Sun. In the 10th house,
both are digbali, giving a rare strength to his horoscope
and both are ammunition dumps which, when they
exploded, brought his downfall.
From his Moon in Meena, the 10th lord is Jupiter in the
6th house with Saturn the 11th and the 12th lord, repeating
the pattern of his career from the lagna with a difference.
Here, there is no association with the 8th lord.
Some doubts have been expressed about the correctness of his
horoscope. At a glance, some features that strike the eye,
need not let the doubt persist.
1 . His 9th lord under the Rahu/Ketu axis is in the 8th
house. A setback to fortune is the general meaning of it.
Yet it has been observed that it becomes a case of a d o
p t i o n .
2 . Then, his 5th lord Saturn in the 12th took him away
from his native place for studies to a far off place, from
Warangal to Nagpur. More important is, that while in 1977,
other Congressmen lost elections in northern India, he won
and came to occupy the important position of
the Chairman of the Central Public Accounts Committ e e
3 . It happened towards the end of his Sun mahadasha, the
12th lord, and the beginning of the Moon mahadasha, both
representing foreign matters that he became the External
Affairs Minister under Indira Gandhi in 1980.
There can be a debate about the correctness of the degrees
of his lagna but not the lagna which has to be Kanya. Born
with Kanya, is the ascendant at 240 in the navamsha of Sun
and with the balance Vimshottari dasha of Saturn/Sun/Rahu?
While casting the birth chart of PVN, we have also considered
the adjustment of Railway Time. This could also be the reason,
for variation in lagna and its degrees. We have strong reasons
to accept the authenticity of this birth horoscope, since
it has been directly given by him to Late Sh. Hiralal Choubhey
in 1978, and later, it was passed on to Sh K N Rao.
This horoscope was cast by an Astrological Institute of
Hyderabad. As we have tested this horoscope with othermajor
events of his life, we have no doubts about the veracity
GAJAKESARI YOGA GAJAKESARI YOGA
of this horoscope.
The former Prime Minister of India from 1991 to 1996, Narasimha
Rao is popularly known as PVN or, modern Chanakya in Indian
politics. Since 1995, he has become a controversial figure
in Indian politics.
He is a literary person with excellent talents. He is a
linguist. He studied BSc and LLB and has also translated
the literary Telugu work Vaiyi Padagalu by Vishwanath Satyanarana
Lagnesh at 27040 with Sun and Mars in the 10th house shows
both ambition and chances to rise high in life. Sun and Mars
are closely conjunct. Mars is also the 8th lord. Lagnesh and
Venus are at the same degrees.
The natural karaka for marriage, Venus has gone into 8th
with Ketu. Seventh lord Jupiter is in 12th house with Saturn.
Saturn and Venus being trikona lords, moving into dushsthanas,
with malefics, caused problems in marriage.
The seventh house remains unaspected by any malefic or
The most prominent feature in this horoscope is that all
planets are concentrating on 10/12 axis.
The 9th lord in 8th is responsible for a person to go in
for adoption is an observation of many astrologers. We are
concentrating on the career and the focus is on events of
his career only. The 8th lord and 12th lord with the Sun,
completely afflict the 10th house. The effect has to be
in the dasha of 8th lord. The 10th again remains unaspected
by any of the planet either malefic or benefic.
Some of his professional events are chronicled below.
1 . He started his political career in 1955, when he was
elected as Member of the State Assembly in the dasha of
2 . He was made Minister of Law and Information in 1962,
when the dasha was of Venus/Rahu. Venus is in the 8th house
aspected by Jupiter, the planet of law, and Rahu is aspecting
Venus from the 2nd house.
3. In 1964, he was Minister of Law and Endowments, when
the dasha was of Venus/Jupiter. Jupiter is the karaka lord
of endowments and law.
4. In 1967 and 1968 he was Minister of Education, in the
dasha of Venus/Saturn, Saturn is with Jupiter and is also
the 5th lord of education.
5. He was the Chief Minister of Andhra Pradesh in 1971-73,
in Venus/Mercury and Venus/Ketu. Mercury, the lagnesh, and
10th lord, form a raj yoga. PVN did not enjoy much power
and position in Sun's dasha which ended in 1980. Sun the
12th lord, is in 10th which is generally not favourable.
Such combination would lead to disturbances or could bring
a person down in the career. In this dasha, he came to central
politics. In 1977, at the end of this dasha in Sun/Saturn,
he was elected to the Lok Sabha for the first time. The
Sun is in 10th house and Saturn in 12th house in 3/ 11 axis.
In dashamansha both Saturn and Sun are debilitated. Sun
is also the 8th lord of dashmansha He was again elected
to the Lok Sabha in 1980, 1984, 1989 in the dasha of Moon/Moon,
6. He was the Minister of External Affairs in 1980 -1984
when the dasha was of Moon/Moon followed by the antardasha
of Mars and Rahu. Moon the 11th lord is placed in the 7th
house. Mars the antardasha lord is in kendra from the dashanath,
Moon, and is also placed in 10th house. In dashmansha Mars
is 9th from Moon placed in 10th house. The antardasha was
of Rahu which is in 2nd house, and in dashmansha Rahu is
in 10th house, which is also 9th from Moon. He continued
with his foreign portfolio even in the antardasha of Jupiter,
which is in the 12th house and, its dispositer Moon, is
the dasha lord. In dashmansha Moon and Jupiter are conjoined
in the 2nd house.
7. From 1984-1988, he was the Minister of Home Affairs,
Minister of Defence, Minister of Human Resource Development
and Health and Family Welfare, in the dasha of the Moon/Saturn
and Moon/Venus. In Moon's mahadasha, PVN lost his mother,
the date of GAJAKESARI YOGA GAJAKESARI YOGA her death is
8. In 1988-89, he again became the Minister of External
Affairs, in Moon/Sun, the antardasha of Sun which is in
the 10th house of birth chart and also 9th from Moon and
placed in 10th house.
Rahu is vargottama in all the divisional charts. Rahu is
being aspected by Saturn and Venus.
What happened in Sun/Mars dasha in 1975? He was not in
power and was also not holding any position of power. Sun/Mars
in the 12th house of Trimshamsha brought misfortunes in
his life. When Mars/Sun had started, he lost the post of
Presidentship of the Congress Party, then Congress Parliamentary
Party. He was continously losing the posts one after the
another. Apart from that, his party had also lost in elections,
which always remained as single largest party in the Indian
democracy. In almost all the General Elections held, Congress
had always enjoyed the position of the ruling party or sat
in opposition, with enormous majority.
But, in 1996 elections, the Congress party failed miserably.
In Mars mahadasha he became the 8th Prime Minister of India.
Mars being in the 10th house with lagnesh and the royal
planet Sun. Mars again placed in 10th in dashmansha. But,
from the antardasha of Saturn, he became very controversial
in the Harshad Mehta episode (which rocked India's stock
exchanges). Saturn is placed in the 12th house and is also
the 5th and 6th lord, the house of investments and finances.
Mars is aspecting 5th house, and being 8th and 3rd lord,
and Saturn 5th and 6th lord in 12th, the looming disaster
in his career was clear.
In dashamansha, both Saturn and Sun are debilitated. Saturn,
the 5th lord, is with Jupiter, responsible for his LLB.
The 3rd lord Mars with Mercury shows literary flair.
In Venus maha dasha, the placement of Venus being 5/10th
lord in lagna is good. The dasha of Venus/Rahu, made a significant
change, bringing him into the lime light, in 1961. (According
Shri K.N. Rao Venus/Rahu and Rahu/Venus has to be dealt
with very cautiously, one can either rise very high or could
go very low. In this dasha he became Minister of Law and
Information. Rahu/Venus are in 1/ 7 axis. Venus the antar
dasha lord is in the 8th house (role of 8th house).
Lagnesh in own house although with malefics and in own
navamasha, helped maintain his position in power. Mars is
digbali and is a position giving planet.
A widower, the lord of 7th in 12th, with the 5th and 6th lord.
The karaka for marriage, Venus, is in Rahu/Ketu axis in 8th
house. In Navamsha Mars in the 7th is completely ruining the
happiness of the 7th house. Astrologically, the 5th house
is related to love affairs and 12th house, among other things,
is for pleasures of marriage.
The relation formed here lends credence to the allegations
levelled against him in certain quarters that he had some
extra-marital relations. In the autobiography of Vengal
Rao, this issue has been discussed with details. Since this
is out of the purview of this paper, we leave it here. Astrology
does point that such happenings can take place in his life.
He had a very short married life, but was blessed with
three sons and five daughters. In birth horoscope, the 5th
lord, Saturn, is with Jupiter and in Saptamsha, Jupiter
is in 5th house, in own house along with Mercury.
In Mars dasha, PVN was in a mood of retirement from politics,
but the 8th lord had to play its game. It brought him back
to public life from oblivion. It was as if the loser in
the marathon was declared a winner by default.
The eighth house, among other things, also denotes gains
from the dead and it was only the death of Rajiv Gandhi
and the subsequent void which brought him back from dark
and deep w o o d s .
From the middle of 1996, PVN was undergoing the dasha of
Mars/Sun, the deterioration had started with his party losing
majority in Lok Sabha Election, followed by the Congress
Leadership and Congress Parliamentary Party, the allegation
for bribing JMM for supporting his party on the floor GAJAKESARI
YOGA GAJAKESARI YOGA of Lok Sabha, in the no confidence
He is the first Prime Minister to seek a vote of confidence.
Followed by the
St.Kitts and Lakhubai cheating case, these also led him
to seek anticipatory bail. This is also the yoga for bandhana,or
jail going, in the periods of the 8th and 12th lords. He
is passing through the 2nd phase of his sadesati.
The trouble started for him, when it touched the natal
Moon's degrees of 100 .
Can we say that the tarnished image of Congress is due
to PVN? Was the loss of the party a captain's loss or did
the ship itself have deep holes which allowed the water
in and led to its drowning? Since the PVN was the leader,
so allegations were made against him even though the party
had lack of direction. To get a clearer view, we have to
analyse the horoscope of Congress Party or, at least to
find out whether the captain was responsible for its failures
or did the ship itself had gaping holes.
us now discuss the Congress Party's horoscope so that we
could get the crystal clear view. Rahuís dasha started
in July, 1991. Congress came into power. Rahu is very closely
conjunct with Moon. The lagna, Moon, Rahu and Ketu are at
same degrees. Rahu is being aspected by debilitated Mars
(R), Jupiter (R) and Saturn (R). Rahu is badly afflicted
in the 7th h o u s e .
In Rahu/Rahu, fight for the Congress leadership and Congress
involvement in horse-trading is well reflected. The dasha
of Rahu/Jupiter, or Jupiter/Rahu is known astrologically
for enigmas. In this dasha, Congress had to pass through
these problems within the party.
Few eminent veteran leaders were either expelled or had
to quit the party due to differences with the party leader.
Jupiter being lagnesh and 10th lord, which is also retrogade,
is aspecting the mahadasha lord Rahu in the 7th house. This
was the saving grace for the Congress Party, by which they
were able to complete their term in the Lok Sabha.
As the antardasha of Saturn came, which is 11th and 12th
lord in 6th, also retrograde, the party's position had started
declining. The results in the recent General Election (1996)
to Lok Sabha Congress could get only 140 seats, a very poor
The impact of the solar eclipse on 24th Oct, 1995 further
clarifies the affliction in both the horoscopes. In PVNís
case, the axis is 2nd house and in Congress horoscope the
eclipse is taking place in 8th house but in 2nd from Moon.
From the Moon, it is taking place in 8th house of the birth
chart. In the dashamsha of PVN, eclipse is shadowing the
