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...

 (This article written on 16 May has appeared in the Star Teller of July 2007)

The end of an era we speak of are generally of three types. The first is historic in the truest sense of the term, historic in essence and cataclysmic because of the changes it brings about and in retrospect, glorious or ignominious, depending what view one takes of history.

The collapse of communist USSR in 1990 was the most historic event in the last two decades though for us Indians, the end of British rule in 1947 has greater such significance.

The death of Jawaharlal Nehru was historic because it was the death of the first Prime Minister of a newly freed country. The end of Stalinist regime in USSR too was historic.

The second type also historic is a change which creates an element of fear and uncertainty. Here there is the tone and temper of a revolution with or without bloodshed as happened in Uttar Pradesh on 11 May when Mayawati, a Dalit  woman leader took over the leadership after a piece of remarkable social engineering. No one had expected her to succeed so spectacularly as she did. More about it later in an article with astrological explanation..

The third type is a change which should not be termed historic but historical only as is the end of the era of Tony Blair in England in May/June of 2007. This was predicted repeatedly by me and with the time frame too which has come out correct now.

My prediction was:
In this enigmatic Saturn Venus antardasha the pratyantara dashas now running and in future are as follows:

Saturn Venus Rahu upto 19 July 2006, Saturn Venus-Jupiter upto 20 Dec 2006, Saturn Venus-Saturn upto 22 June 2007

In Chara dasha It will be Karka- Kumbha period upto 4 November 2006 with the Atmakaraka in Kanya falling in the eighth house. It is disastrous enough.

Then comes the antardasha of Dhanu upto 6 May 2007--the well known period in Jaimini astrology of rise and fall. (Written on 10 May 2006)

Chara dasha as researched by me gives me clearest indications of such events, almost invariably. In giving this prediction some of my published researches were helpful and I had no doubt at any stage that he would have to quit though he had initially shown no intention of leaving office before the completion of his fourth term.

This will be an end deserved by the poodle of George Bush who bluffed the world about Iraq along with Bush and talked of God judging him.

The ouster of a democratically elected prime minister in such a manner is as disgraceful as that of a dictator like Saddam Hussein in a violent way through a war.

This disgraceful exit was clear from the  Hindu New Year horoscope for UK for the year 2007 in which the tenth lord goes into the third house and the mutual opposition of Mars and Saturn involving the eighth house showed the controversy.

Blair was unwilling to lay down his date of departure and it was feared that he was playing for time and was not going to lay down any such time inspite of pressure on him. It came to a boiling point and Blair had no choice but to announce his departure.

Even then, he continued to be tricky and waited and waited to support Gordon Brown as his successor. In a way, it began resembling the pathetic departure of Margaret Thatcher’s departure.

But Saturn from the eighth house aspecting the tenth house and in turn aspected by Mars had to make it all unpleasant and no one regrets his departure after leaving the terrible legacy of Iraq for his successor.

How will be his future since he will still be sitting in the parliament not having resigned from the House of Commons ?

The present dasha of Saturn Venus will be followed by that of Saturn-Sun from 1 February 2008 when his legacy, particularly the disastrous Iraq legacy will be assessed and the damage he has done along with President Bush to the Muslim psyche, made Israel more insecure than ever before ,with the threat of terrorism increasing everywhere in the world, will open out such wounds as Blair’s spin doctors did not allow to get focused in the British press.

Saturn in Simha
Then when in July, Saturn moves into Simha the fourth house  from his lagna but eighth from his birth Moon, he may have the mortification of  seeing the Iraq policy being  reversed through withdrawal of British troops and Gordon Brown taking the line Democrats in USA want Bush to take into which they will in any case succeed in pushing him in the election year in USA.

Rahu in Makara
Later, in May 2008 when Rahu transits into Makara and grips his Moon he will find himself in indefensible position as some of lies he has told along with his spin doctors about Iraq about the non discovery of weapons of mass destruction may see the light of the day.

If the exit of Margaret Thatcher was an anti climax, the post exit period of Blair will be one of utter disgrace as there will be historical proof , proof condemn.

The tragedy of history is that Blair the youngest prime minister in two hundred years who has the credit of making England the strongest economy in Europe, though large part of the credit for this should go to Gordon Brown, will be remembered for the Iraq legacy and the disasters following.
