the prophecy of
Shankaracharya Jayendra Saraswati given to me 28 April 2006
This is necessary to explain that it is only my post election
astrological analysis not a prediction yet a prediction.
So let me describe it in stages.
Stage One : Not interested in Tamilnadu politics
I have not followed Tamilnadu politics and have never collected
the horoscopes of the important political figures of that
state or even the correct horoscopes of the political parties.
First time in 1989, the late Santhanam came to discuss with
me the horoscopes of Karunanidhi with Karka lagna and of Jayalalitha
with Mithuna. It is only now that I have some interest in
the elections but because of a prejudice. If Jayalalitha loses,
there will be some relief to Shankaracharya Jayendra Saraswati.
If in these circumstances I do astrological analysis I will
start with a PREJUDICED MIND and handicap myself with a biased
interpretations of the horoscopes even if accurate ones are
First read about what Shankarcharya Jayendra Saraswati told
Shankaracharya Jayendra Saraswati
28 April 2006
On 28 April, I went to meet here in Delhi Shankaracharya
Jayendra Saraswati after I was informed by Sri L. N. from
Bangalore day before yesterday night that Swamiji would be
in Delhi and I should meet him. Between 1974 and 2006, I have
met him many times at different stations but in this meeting
I felt that his siddhis were in bloom and focussed. Smilingly,
he told me that the outcome of the Tamilnadu elections will
be a government headed by DMK with the woman, Jayalalitha,
was now going to face defeat.
He told me many other things which are too private to be
disclosed. It was a thirty minutes meeting with me sitting
alone with him.
Stage Three : Pre-poll surveys
Elections will take place in Tamilnadu and votes will be
cast. Pre poll surveys called it a close fight with some chances
of Jayalalitha coming back but with Karunananidhi being uncomfortably
close to winning, depending on the moods of voters and eleventh
hour electoral swings.
Then will come the exit polls and finally results in the
second week of May.
The spiritual insight of Shankaracharya Jayendra Saraswati
was what may not sur-prise anyone who has known him for years
This observation of mine was confirmed by someone else who
has known him much
longer. I felt so happy.
Stage Four: Why our interest now ?
I was not interested in the outcome of the elections in Tamilnadu
Jayendra Saraswati was arrested by the government of Jayalalita
and I wished her to lose elections. I was already prejudiced
against her and so I must refrain from making any predictions
about the outcome even if I got the correct horoscopes of
Karunananidhi and Jayalalitha.
Stage Five : Horoscopes
What is the correct horoscope of Karunanidhi ? I dug out
my old records and found that I had one with the following
birth details 3 June 1924. Karunananidhi ( 3 June 1924
Thanjavur with Karka lagna with Moon in Vrisha.
This horoscope seems to be different from what many others
have been using but I remember that the late Santhanan had
once discussed with me in 1989 while I was still in service
and could not have made any prediction on these matters publicly.
Both of us agreed that this could be a correct horoscope though
neither of us had any basis to be sure
about it as we had no events to verify its correctness. What
predictions could he make, asked Santhanam. I told him that
Karunanidhi would win and become chief minister if the horoscope
was correct. He did win After that I never touched this horoscope
even for any astrological research.
The exalted fifth and tenth lord in the seventh tell three
stories at once: his own rise, his son's rise and his marriages.
I need to see it now for my study as I am prejudiced against
Jayalalitha , not for any
prediction. (see appendix)
Jayalalitha ( 24 Feb 1948 Mysore)
Similarly, the horoscope I had of Jayalalitha was with Mithuna
lagna, which a Madras based astrologer said once, was wrong.
He insisted that it was Vrisha lagna. May be, being Madras
based, he was right. But recently some other astrologers also
said that Vrisha lagna was correct. I could not verify this
horoscope as I had no events of her life nor am I interested.
But the Mithuna lagna horoscope was used by Santhanam who
had assured me that it was most authentic. I know that Santhanam
used many wrong horoscopes, rushed with his judgements and
most of his predictions went wrong.
Stage Six :Should I make a prediction ?
Should I make a prediction I wondered and as usual restrained
from doing so as I do
after having been deceived at least thrice in life with the
horoscopes of famous persons and celebrties. I avoid making
predictions about these famous people, particularly Indian
politicians and actors and actresses, as I know from experience
that most of them are wrong and also know that wrong horoscopes
are allowed to be circulated.
At a glance, I decided that Jayalalitha was losing and decided
to keep it with me and post it after the results of Tamilnadu
elections are out on 11 May as I learn.
But I decided to post to some people in Chennai and get their
reaction. I decided to post to R. I. of Madras and ask for
reaction. Here I am posting it . (9 May ).
It is not a prediction but just an astrological exercise,
may be based on wrong data, to
see what Shankaracharya Jayendra Saraswati had told me so
confidently (as has never happened before in so many meetings
of mine in nearly thirty years).would come out correct or
I was happy to see his siddhis bloom, let me repeat.
Stage Seven : Exit polls
Exit polls of some surveys have come out on 9 May midnight
predicting the defeat of
Jayalalitha. Sometimes exit polls have gone wrong very badly.
But one of the surveys says that it was very large and therefore
the chances of going wrong did not exist. That pleases me.
In the case of Tamilnadu, exit polls went wrong in 2001.
Jayalalitha claims that more
women have voted in May 2006 and therefore she will romp home
and retain her chief ministership. Karunanidhi on the other
hand claims that his party would do better than what has been
predicted by exit polls.
Stage Eight: Astrological analysis
I have seen the horoscopes of Karunanidhi (Karka lagna) for
the reason explained and of Jayalalitha with Vrisha lagna,
changing it from what Santhanam had given me with the assurance
of it being from most reliable sources. I made detailed analysis
which I am not giving here.
Ketu Mercury Ketu in Vimshottari In Chara dasha it is Mesha which has his Amatyakaraka aspecting the tenth house and Kumbha from where AK aspects the tenth house and is in turn aspected by Amatyakaraka . That favours him.
He may be a surprise winner but how long will be survive?
The brief candle will burn once more. Will he cross 2008 ?
The double transit phenomenon fits in perfectly here with
Jupiter and Saturn aspecting the tenth house from the lagna.
But the exchange between the tenth lord Mars and the twelfth
lord Mercury can also mean Karunanidhi deciding to stand down
in favour of someone who can be his own son.
Importance of Putrakaraka
In Chara dasha it is Mesha dasha from where the Putrakaraka,
Jupiter, aspects the tenth house and in the antardasha of
Kumbha from where this putrakaraka goes into the
tenth house. What can it mean ? Has Karunanidhi already decided
to entrust to his son a big post or even chief ministership
She will have Rahu Ketu Mars at the time of elections in
Vimshottari. Mars becomes the twelfth lord also and is retrograde
Kanya Makar in Chara dasha with Amatyakaraka, Venus, falling
in the third house and the tenth house under heavy affliction.
The pratyantara dasha will be of Meena at the time of elections.
Her Amatyakaraka is placed here.That can mean that she would
win her own elections and become the Leader of Opposition
which is generally a post with cabinet rank. But it is not
favourable for retaining her chief ministership.
There is danger to her with Mars and Moon falling in the
eighth house in Chara antar dasha. And do you see the aspect
of retrograde Mars on retrograde Mercury here? Do you know
what it indicates?
Anyway, May 11 is not far off. Today when I am completing
this piece it is 9 May. Day after tomorrow we will know if
Jayalalitha has reached the sunset of her career like her
opponent Karunanidhi who is living on borrowed time, they
Those interested in Tamilnadu politics should collect the
horoscopes of other rising leaders as they will become relevant
in future, perhaps, in less than two years. What will be politics
like in post Karunanidhi and post Jayalalitha Tamilnadu should
interest some people at least.
Stage Nine ASTROLOGERS FRATERNITY
One must become aware of and notice the low upbringing of
astrologers in India who claim to be superior to all other
astrologers when a chancy prediction or two clicks. It is
what will happen even after the Tamilnadu elections. Not one
of them came forward to fight the greatest battle of astrology
in the Supreme Court in 2004. Yet, they talk of the great
heritage of astrology and our great rishis !!
Stage ten: Futile astrology: Anti climax
It is waste of time for astrologers to keep wrestling with
wrong horoscopes, wrong or
no horoscopes of political parties and predict the result
In essence, most of the so called astrological predictions
about elections are guesses.
Then remember, predicting a reversal is generally safe these
days when the aspirations of the voters are so many and no
government can ever satisfy them. Jayalalitha had actually
done very well as a chief minister is what many people who
have known the working of Tamilnadu government told me and
assured me. As a commentator said when the aspirations are
too many a party in power is voted out. There is the history
of Tamilnadu and Kerala where every five years the opposition
is voted to power and party in power becomes the opposition.
In such circumstances, why are astrologers wasting their time
in predicting the election results ?
And the Final Stage
The results have come out. I must say that Indian psephologists
have done very well
this time, all the three exit polls predicting the victory
of DMK in Tamilnadu, of the left in Kerala and Bengal, and
ding dong battle in Assam. The pre poll survey were erratic
but the exit polls proved correct. Perhaps psephologists of
India are the best in the world if you take into account of
the vastness and variety of electoral process in India and
the huge population..
I watched the live coverage on different television channels
and once again found Prannoy Roy so analytical, lucid and
insightful as before. The veteran is the Tendulkar among Indian
SHANKARACHARYA proved right. The woman has lost. Karunanidhi
has come back to power for the fifth time.

Date: Tue, 09 May 2006 19:31:42 IST
Astrological Magazine of 1980 used to show Karka lagna of
Karunanidhi and so also
the late Santhanam in the Times of Astrology in 1989 which
he discussed with me before predicting the victory of Karunanidhi.
I used that horoscope to arrive at my tentative conclusion
though it is actually the prediction of the Acharya given
to me on 28 April 2006.
Let us wait and see.

I favoured Mithuna lagna for Jayalalitha as an afflcted fifth
house and other factors show her not becoming a mother. If
it is Vrisha the picture gets reversed and after the age of
27 .... Not knowing these facts, I cannot verify her horoscope.
But for the Tamilnadu elections, I am now using Vrisha lagna
and predicting her defeat.
