Shankracharya Jayendra Saraswati and KN RaoThe news of the death of Shankaracharya Jayendra Saraswati did not surprise me as for six years at least, as I personally know, his health had been bad, his diabetes was not under control. The three women who had conspired against him, Sonia Gandhi, Jayalalitha and Shashikala each suffered in her own way. Jayalalitha won elections after being defeated for one term, became the Chief minister but suffered from bad health and died a mysterious death. Shashikala is in jail and her claims of leadership is not accepted in AIADMK. It makes her a weak politician. Sonia Gandhi, now suffering from some disease has retired from active politics, has handed over the presidentship of the Congress Party to her son, in the usual familiar Nehru way---dynastic succession. Sonia’s role in the sinister plot to arrest Shankaracharya Kanchi has been mentioned by the former president of India Sri Pranab Mukherjee (See appendix I).
Mouni Baba ( 3rd March came the news of the death of Mouni Baba, three days after the mahasamadhi of Shankaracharya Jayendra Saraswati on the last day of February. Jayendra Saraswati, born in 1935, was 82 years when he took samadhi. In the case of Mouni Baba we never knew his age as no one knew it and it was guessed that he was ninety three years old when he took samadhi though some newspapers said that he was 108 years old then.

If Mithuna was the lagna of Hillary she could not have lost and if it was Tula there was no way of her winning was my conclusion in the last piece . In the meantime a third horoscope with Simha lagna also sprang up. It is only of academic value now to find out which is correct as Hillary’s career has now ended. Hillary has won the popular votes but lost because her electoral votes were less.

“It happens in close presidential elections, especially when the victor, in this case Trump, wins the electoral votes but loses the popular vote, in this case to Hillary Clinton by about 200,000 ballots at last count.” (http:// ct-electoral-college-kass-1111-20161110-column.html)

The irony of it all is that those who predicted a Hillary victory were right and those who predicted a Trump victory were also right! That is the confusion of popular votes vs electoral votes.


For the fourth time in American history the president-elect lost the popular vote.

Credit the electoral college Winners of the electoral vote, but not the popular vote Rutherford B. Hayes was elected in 1876, Benjamin Harrison in 1888, George W. Bush in 2000, and Trump on Tuesday. (Times wire services)

Under the system established in the Constitution, in 1787, the winner is the candidate who wins the majority of electoral votes based on the state-by-state tallies, and that candidate is Donald Trump.”

However what must be admitted is that revolution, as Farage said, has taken place for which no one was prepared for “This is the year of the political revolution. First we had Brexit, which was the first brick that was knocked out of the establishment wall. Then in the US we had, in political terms, a remarkably similar event.
See some of the excerpts first.
MANCHESTER GUARDIAN - Thursday 10 November 2016
If current projections hold, Hillary Clinton will soon become the second presidential nominee to win the popular vote yet lose the electoral college – and thus the White House – in past five US presidential elections.
As Nigerl Farage has said” This result looks 'bigger than Brexit' .

Final Election Update: There’s A Wide Range Of Outcomes, And Most Of Them Come Up Clinton
By Nate Silver

Filed under 2016 Election
Throughout the election, our forecast models have consistently come to two conclusions. First, that Hillary Clinton was more likely than not to become the next president. And second, that the range of possible Electoral College outcomes — including the chance of a Donald Trump victory, but also a Clinton landslide that could see her winning states such as Arizona — was comparatively wide.

That remains our outlook today in our final forecast of the year. Clinton is a 71 percent favorite to win the election according to our polls-only model and a 72 percent favorite according to our polls-plus model. (The models are essentially the same at this point, so they show about the same forecast.)
This reflects a  meaningful improvement for Clinton in the past 48 hours as the news cycle has taken a final half-twist in her favor. Her chances have increased from about 65 percent.”

Note: Out of the nineteen polls eighteen were giving best chances to

Hillary.Only one gave lead to Trump consistently and it proved correct.

Rao sir,
Debates are over and polls are suggesting that Clinton will win but I think trump has better chance based on the people's sentiments I speak to I don't think america or Americans are ready to accept a woman as president to begin

This wise comment of my American Indian friend was wiser, in retrospect, than all the American polls, except one.
The following comment in the New York Times sums up everyone’s bewilderment.

The New York Times
Paul Krugman:
Our Unknown Country

We still don’t know who will win the electoral college, although as I write this it looks — incredibly, horribly — as if the odds now favor Donald J. Trump. What we do know is that people like me, and probably like most readers of The New York Times, truly didn’t understand the country we live in. We thought that our fellow citizens would not, in the end, vote for a candi¬date so manifestly unqualified for high office, so temperamentally unsound, so scary yet ludicrous.

What can happen has been summed up here: “

President Trump makes America quake - Mirror Politics morning newsletter
Mirror Politics
<> Good mourning America,
Yet again the pollsters, experts and analysts got it wrong.
Yet again the establishment got a kicking. Yet again expectations have been confounded.
Donald Trump will be the 45th President of the United States.
You can read our account of how the night unfolded here.
This was a howl of rage by Americans against the governing classes.
The Republican, a trust-fund billionaire born with every privilege an American could want, managed to position himself as the anti¬establishment candidate and surf the wave of anger and frustration that has been threatening to crash on Washington for several years.
The unknown question is how will Trump behave in office.
Will his unpredictable, free-wheeling, almost anarchic style of doing politics continue in the White House or will he be constrained by a Republican-led Congress and accept that with the office comes a requirement of dignity?
In his acceptance speech he promised to govern for all Americans. But many fear that his victory will stir up racial hatred and further marginalise the marginalised.
Few have entered the White House with so little experience and so many skeletons in their cupboard.


Trump won the elections in Rahu Mars-Moon and immediately after the declaration of the results has entered the mahadasha of Jupiter. Here Jupiter aspects the tenth house promising some good work and not the frightening agenda he promised during the elections speeches.

Trump’s priority will be to concentrate US economy in which he will achieve success as Jupiter in the second house, aspecting the tenth shows here.

He knows how to strike a deal but almost nothing of international affairs, global security and the workings of Capitol Hill.
The future of Nato, international trade rules, agreements on climate change, the situation in the Middle East and the global power balance are now in flux.
Domestically, Trump has to unite a coun¬try whose divisions he exploited to win the presidency.

Much of his campaign was based on appealing to prejudice and resentment.
Never has the adage that politics is showbusiness for ugly people rung so true.
The anger which propelled him to office could be nothing compared to the rage if he fails to deliver on his promises.

The disgust with all this was expressed thus : The Wall Street Journal:
‘Deplorables’ rise up to reshape America By Gerald F. Seib

All said and done, it was as the headline here suggests what it was:
Donald Trump's shock victory sparks protests across America - The Guardian

To sum up what has happened in USA resembles what happened in India in 1977 when no once expected Indira Gandhi to lose.
A letter from USA sums it all thus: US Election
S. B. <>
To knrao Nov at 7:38 PM
Respected Sir:
Think ultimately the final verdict was a lot of voters didn't trust Hillary. Definitely as a person and maybe for some even her being a woman. Not sure when America will be ready for a woman President but it is ... Secondly, very clearly a lot of white voters lied to the pollsters as they didn't want to make explicit their support for Trump.

THE TRUMP ERA---how will this be?
How the Trump era will be , internally for USA and externally for other nations in the world, mainly the Muslim countries is being speculated from the most dreadful to normal.In USA itself there are agitations against Trump and not a graceful acceptance. Pakistan’s newspapers are giving as many five or six reports on the victory of Trump and are panick- stricken.

Astrologically, the health issue, Obamacare, will suffer as the oath taking chart, (the time being fixed for 20 January 2017 12 am) shows with Mars Jupiter axis along 6-12 axis shows.

Whatever Trump may say there is no chance of USA going into isolation but will be very much involved in wars outside USA which the Hindu New Year horoscope of 2017 (to be disussed later) shows.
Now read the appendices.

I am a Pakistani-American and Trump's rise threatens me
JANNAT MAJEED — UPDATED about 20 hours ago
When Donald Trump first made the statement about banning Muslims from entering the United States, I did not take it as an abstract concern.
..I thought about immigrant parents making sacrifices for their children in a new country, faced with all sorts of new challenges. ....I thought about my Pakistani relatives who, after September 11, 2001, found it much more difficult to visit us and perhaps now would never be able to I thought about the trips we took to our family home in Lahore every few years and whether those trips could make us liabilities or contribute to us being seen as suspicious.

What does Donald Trump’s rise mean to me as a Pakistani immigrant in the United States? ...Donald Trump’s rise did not occur in a vacuum. He did not come up with his own bigoted rhetoric out of nowhere. Rather, he exploited fears and anxieties that already existed — the fears and anxieties of a country recovering from an eco¬nomic crisis and in an age of international terrorism....By repeating beliefs about Muslims being untrustworthy or unwilling to follow the laws of the United States, he provided a conve¬nient scapegoat for the problems the country is facing....While this seems like an innocuous enough test, Trump is seeking to target Muslim immigrants or immigrants from Muslim-majority countries — one that plausibly includes Pakistan — by including language on asking about honour killings, people’s attitudes on ‘radical Islam,’ and 'Shariah law.'


- Donald Trump, as is evident from his campaign speeches, it is assumed would be inclined to go ahead with his anti-outsider approach.
- Trump is being seen as introducing more tax breaks for making investments in the US.
- Trump might be seen as being soft towards Indians, but he may not be that migrant friendly.
- Trump is expected to reduce interna¬tional grants under his presidentship.
Let’s also have a look at what is at stake for India?
- Investment by US in ‘Make in India’.
- Help from US for India’s Nuclear Suppliers Group (NSG) bid.
- US support for India against terrorism endorsed by Pakistan.
- Partnership with US to balance China.
- Availability of US research for ‘cleaner technology’.


Telegraph News
Why did polls get it so wrong? Because politics as we knew it is over
Like everyone else in the prediction game, Mr Luntz was served up a feast of his own words to consume over the next few hours. First came the odd unnerving slice of reality. Then came a few massive helpings of humble pie.
One by one, all their predictions, all their forecasts, their obsessively mined data, their experience at calling previous elections fell apart. It all counted for nothing. Trump was demolishing the pollsters, just as he demolished his rivals to be Republican nominee, just as he - at the time of writing - looked set to demolish Hillary Clinton's chances of assuming the presi¬dency.

Donald Trump Is Elected President in Stunning  Repudiation of the Establishment
Date November 9, 2016
Donald John Trump was elected the 45th president of the United States on Tuesday in a stunning culmination of an explosive, populist and polarizing campaign that took relentless aim at the institutions and long-held ideals of American democracy.

The surprise outcome, defying late polls that showed Hillary Clinton with a modest but persistent edge, threatened convulsions throughout the country and the world, where skeptics had watched with alarm as Mr. Trump’s unvarnished overtures to disillusioned voters took hold.

The triumph for Mr. Trump, 70, a real estate developer-turned-reality television star with no government experience, was a powerful rejection of the establishment forces that had assembled against him, from the world of busi¬ness to government, and the consensus they had forged on everything from trade to immigration.

Donald Trump and the Rejection of Progressivism Americans voted against the Left’s contempt for the Constitution.

Myron Magnet
November 10, 2016
One message to take away from Donald Trump’s presidential victory: Americans don’t want to be ruled. They prefer self-government. The election was not about liberals versus con¬servatives. Rather it was a contest between Progressivism and the anti-Progressivism of which Trump is the democratic—even the crudely demotic—embodiment.
