KASHMIR (Updated)
Today, 5 August 2019 has become a historic day in our history as something which could not be done in 70 years has taken shape now. Union Home minister Amit Shah has announced that Article 370 which grants special status to the state of Jammu and Kashmir will be scrapped. He also announced that Jammu and Kashmir will no longer be a state and it will be bifurcated into two Union Territories— Jammu & Kashmir and Ladakh.  read more...
Is ours an ideal democracy!! Hardly so, it is far from being an ideal democracy; where there should be  two equal opponents, like Conservative and Labour party in Britain; like Republican and Democratic party in USA. As for India, for the two major parties here i.e. Congress and BJP there has never been a state of relative equilibrium. There was a time when Congress was all powerful for a long time, BJP had not come into existence then. BJP came into existence and gradually spread its wings and the status now of present election result on 23 May 2019 is that BJP alone bagged 303 seats and 353 seats along with its NDA Alliance. Congress on the other hand could muster only 52 seats; along with UPA, Congress got 91. Other parties won 98 seats. What to talk of equality, Congress party could not win even 55 seats which is the requisite 10 % to become the official opposition. read more...

The frustration at the failure on 29  September of the bailout plan of Bush for the Wall Street and the US banking system evoked some very abusive reaction. The Manchester Guardian carried some of the comments on the readers thus:

Sep 30 08, 1:23am (about 2 hours ago)

Any sensible attempt to regain the confidence of the "international community," about which we have heard so much in recent years, will have to be accompanied by strong signals that, with the disastrous Bush regime on its way out very soon, the enormous costs of the US expedition to dominate the world, will be controlled.

The financial crisis is the direct consequence both of the expenditures on imperial adventures (of which Iraq and Afghanistan are but a portion) and of the attitude that, with enough bombs, anything is possible and no enemy, not even bankruptcy, to be feared. It is an attitude which has been nourished by the failure of the opposition to oppose. The world has seen, on the one hand, a government directed by criminals on speed and, on the other, the sane and sensible party dumbstruck by terror.

The Republicans who voted no saw the bill as socialism. The Democrats who opposed it rejected the idea that taxpayers should have to bail out failed banks.

There is a horrible inevitability that it should be George W Bush who presides over this catastrophic failure of political leadership. Please USA voters, show some judgment next time, don't vote another idiot into power.

This 'bailout' is America's new crazy brand of 'Socialism'...without any of the benefits!

When I wrote in January 2002 issue of the Journal of Astrology, USA - The Declining Years, I was a hundred percent sure that the Simha lagna horoscope I was using for USA alone was correct with the date of birth being 4 July 1776. I had expected 2004 to be a year of financial crash but I now learn that rescuing Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac saved it and now some people say that it should be privatized.

As it is, the joke cracked by an economist in India is that USA is now United Socialist Republic of America.

Sun (Amk)
Moon (GK)
Mars (DK)
Mercury R (PK)
Jupiter (BK)
Venus (MK)
Saturn (AK)

Mahadasha of Moon (13 October 2001), Antardashas beginning:
Moon 13 Oct 2001, Mars 14 Sept 2002, Rahu 15 March 2003, Jupiter 12 Sept 2004, Saturn 12 Jan 2006, Mer 14 Sept 2008, Ketu 12 Jan 2009,Venus 13 Sept 2009,ending 13 October 2011

But in the declining years of the mahadasha of Moon and now the antardasha of Mercury how could USA have escaped the financial disaster it is facing now? The visible consequences of the failure to bail out the banking system and particularly the Wall Street along with its fat and pompous executives will be

 a) Bush administration will leave for the next administration a huge debt and deficit problems. Someone should go into the history of USA and see if there existed parallels to this ---Democrats succeeding Republicans in elections after a big financial disaster as happened when FDR came during the period of depression 1929 and Bill Clinton, the Democrat, succeeded the senior Bush.

We do not have a horoscope of the political parties of USA to explain it astrologically. Democrats have come out with an economic recipe after Republicans have left a great financial mess inspite of the politically shared ideal of free market. But Americans, the biggest capitalists have carried it to an extreme with their wild risks annoying many Asians when they preached this ideal and asked them to practice it themselves. It is what must have annoyed Indian Commerce Minister, Kamal Nath who said let Americans now face their disaster instead of preaching to Indians.

What is the future ?

I do not see any relief till 2011 on the basis of the horoscope of USA I have been using most confidently because almost every prediction I have given on this basis has come out correct. And now when this greatest capitalist nation of the world is becoming its victim of its philosophy of free market which has come to mean wild adventures to earn huge profits and sink when times are unfavorable, there should be no doubt left about the horoscope of USA.

When this disaster came to be known I searched the horoscopes of some Americans who had got readings from me in 1993/94 and saw this disaster in starker colors. Two of them are big men in the New York Stock Exchange. As it is, I had given predictions to some Indians investing the New Stock Exchange, that times were not favorable in their horoscopes.

Now see the astrological analysis. Moon the twelfth lord of losses is in the seventh house of war in the horoscope of USA and we know of the adventures of George who tried to amBUSH Iraq and Afghanistan. The antardasha now is of Mercury in the twelfth house sixth from the mahadasha lord, Moon.

In the dashamansha Mercury is again in the twelfth house. Mercury of the birth horoscope is afflicted by Rahu and Ketu is transiting over it now.

Now see also in Chara dasha in which cycles keep repeating and with changing planetary positions in transits and different Chaitra Shukla Pratipada horoscope, events do not repeat exactly which misguided astrologers do not know and question in the absence of their own honest researches.

Chara dasha of Vrischika started from 4 July 2004 and will last up to 2011. From Vrischika four planets fall in the eighth house and are aspected by Saturn. This confirmation of the results of Vimshottari dasha of Moon through Chara dasha had led me into seeing the declining years. Is there any doubt left, six years after I wrote that piece and USA has declined considerably and has no chance of making any big recovery till 2011?


Vimshottari Dasha: Mer/Ket 09-09-2008-Up to - 06-09-2008

Now look at the horoscope of George Bush. Like USA he is passing through the mahadasha of the twelfth lord, Mercury (also the third lord) and the antardasha of Ketu. I have told my students repeatedly that Ketu antardasha in the mahadasha of Mercury is generally a period of humiliation more so, if Ketu is aspected by a malefic. Here Mars aspects the Ketu of Bush. So the story of the presidency of George Bush will be that soon after he assumed office he started with 9/11 as Americans call it and he will end it with 9/29 on which day his bail out plan failed along with the humiliation suffered by Henry Paulson, once an investment banker himself.

Now Democrats should come into power and plan a great rescue act and succeed by 2011. Till then, expect no relief for USA. But it is the greatest capitalist nation of the world influencing the entire global economy in mighty disastrous swings it suffers. So Bush and America become the misfortune of the entire world not even sparing the once communist Russia.

And what a disastrous way of starting our great Dusserah (Navaratri) festival in India with terrorists striking at will and with pilgrims dying in a stampede in a Jodhpur temple?

Finally, see the scientific basis of Hindu astrology. This happened when Moon was in Kanya, eighth from the Moon of USA in Kumbha and on the birth Moon of Bush.
