To help society see issues in the right perspective, it is our duty to make people aware of our limitations as well like getting the correct data based on which predictions are made; Lack of honest feedback from people who come to us for consultations. No monetary support from government for research in astrology. No organized method of teaching other than in the Institute of astrology, Bharatiya Vidya Bhawan. The problem of self-styled astrology and astrologers adorned with self created shining prefix and suffix to their names. The problem of ponga pandits.

With the announcement of British general elections, there is as usual a lot of debate on the outcome of the polls. For an astrologer, specially for such who is politically aware and takes a keen interest in politics, it becomes a tougher job to predict the outcome of an elections. The reason it becomes tougher is because a thinking aware astrologer cannot ignore the ground reality, the relevant issues, the trend, and all the socio-economic-cultural-political factors that are the deciding factors in every election.read more...

Never in recent years was astrology as a predictive science pitted against exit polls and satta bazar so challengingly as during the
Let us review the astrological predictions one by one.
1) My prediction was based on the horo-scope of BJP only and I predicted good time right from the time Yeduyirappa had his briefest spell as the chief minister of Karnataka. Hegde referred to it in his letter to me and I have reproduced that.
Narendra Modi’s horoscope
Prediction of Hegde
2) The prediction of Hegde(whose identity is now being revealed) which I have reproduced in my piece on
3) Narendra Modi’s Horoscope
Prediction of Two women astrologers: Shalini Dhasmana and Priyambada Agarwal
I had not revealed the names of these two women astrologers but I can do that now. One is Shalini Dhasmana now famous for her book on Pataki-rista-Chakra and many brilliant individual predictions. She is on the teaching faculty of the Bharat Vidya Bhawan,
The other is Priyambada Agarwal who gave some unusual predictions to people when other astrologers fleeced their rich clients and allowed them to go to ruins. In one case, she told a businessman to be prepared for disastrous times while another astrologer after charging him more than one lakh rupees and doing shanti had no explanation for the total ruination of the business of that man. It was a superfine interpretation of the dasha of the eleventh lord which brought ruin not fabulous wealth as most of the astrologers had predicted. To see ruin in the mahadasha of the eleventh lord needs skill and courage.
Scanty data used by astrologers
Now look at the scantiest data used by astrologers, I used only the horoscope of the BJP. Hegde used the horoscope of BJP, of Modi and another BJP leader of
These two women looked scientifically into the birth horoscope, Vimshottari dasha, later, Chara Dasha as I use and teach. They were two hundred percent sure of the victory of Modi but also cautioned him about some danger.The central government has been warning of danger to Modi from terrorists. It is from Chara dasha that these two women astrologers predicted victory and the looming danger.
All the famous exit polls except Star Plus failed miserably this time. It was remarkable to see Star Plus hit upon the figure of minimum 115 seats for BJP. LIVE
Satta or Betting
Satta bazar has been regarded as very reliable by some people. I cannot comment about it. But here is what the Satta Bazar predicted from time to time.
Exit polls predict simple majority for BJP
Aaj Tak predicted around 93-109 seats for the BJP. The Congress, it said, would get between 72 and 88 seats in the 182-member House.
Satta dumps Modi, swings Congress way
AHMEDABAD: With barely a day to go for counting to start in
.... After a lot of deliberations, satta syndicates brought down the BJP's tally from 102 seats to just 84 in the 182-member assembly.
How badly exit polls went wrong
Invariably all except one exit poll predicted disaster for BJP in the Saurastra region where it has improved by two seats from 2002 The prestige issue that it had become for Sonia Gandhi, Rahul Gandhi and Manmohan Singh who toured
Disgrace of the Indian media
It is well known that the leftist dominated media of
Teesta Setalvad manages to stay in limelight by launching her anti Modi campaigns. Someone should advise her to take up the cases of marriages, the exploitation of the female by the male and of the male by the female after the passage of Articles 494 and 376 etc.
The cost of predictions and polls
Someone should work out the comparative costs of predicting all these. I used only the paper on which I printed the horoscope of Modi and gave to Shalini and Priyambada—one rupee!! The exit polls spend millions of rupees. The satta bazar had a bet of 12000 crores! Astrology always scores by hitting back at its critics most of the time inspite of its terrible handicap of not having correct horoscopes!!
