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...

Indira Gandhi (19 Nov 1917-31 Oct 1984) some events of her life the most charismatic woman leader in the recent history of the world, the most powerful prime minister of  India till today, Indira Gandhi’s horoscope and predictions given about her have ruined the reputations of many astrologers in India as she ruined the political careers of many Indian leaders.

For astrologers, the interpretation of the famous exchanges in her horoscope, has been an enigma and also a lesson. From the Jaimini angle and Chara dasha it is equally interesting and provides new insights for our thinking.

Mother’s death: afflicted MK

If a karaka that is afflicted is aspected by Gnathikaraka also it leads to early departure of such person from one’s life, in  various ways generally, not always.  I have found it working in majority of cases. In this article I am showing it in three cases. In the case of Indira Gandhi, her Matrikaraka Jupiter is afflicted by Saturn and is being

See the events leading to her marriage.

From 1935 to 1939 it was Mesha dasha. Mesha has Upapada which took her to a TB hospital in Switzerland where Feroze Gandhi came to meet her from England where he was studying. From Mesha in the eighth house are her PK Mercury and DK Sun showing a secret love affair. Then came her Meena dasha from 1939 to 1949. Meena is her navamsha lagna and

she was of marriageable age. Now watch the antardashas from here:

Meena Mesha (19 Nov 1939 to Sep 1940) The upapada and the aspect of DK on Mesha in the birth horoscope and of DKN from Simha helped her resolve to marry Feroze Ghandy who later changed it to Gandhi or his family had done it earlier.

Meena Vrisha (19 Nov 1940 to July 1941) Here DK is in the seventh house in which period she told her father in jail that she was determined to marry Feroze. Her father had to yield to her decision and the declaration was made creating a national uproar which Jawahar Lal Nehru defended hypocritically.  

From July 1941 to May 1942) it was Meena Mithuna with Rahu and Venus in the seventh and it was an unconventional marriage as Rahu denotes here. A Parsi as we know was said to have consented to get the marriage performed in a Hindu way.

From May 1942 to March 1943 (Meena-Karka) she must have decided to raise a family as PK is in theifth house from here. From March 1943 to Jan 1944 (Meena Simha) with PK being in Simha in the Saptamsha, Rajiv Gandhi entered her womb.

From Jan 1944 to Nov 1944 in Meena Kanya with Jupiter, the natural putrakaraka and Mercury the Jaimini PK aspecting Makara, the fifth house from Kanya, she gave birth to her first son Rajiv Gandhi.

In the Saptamsha, from Kanya the fifth house receives the aspect of Mercury PK.

Meena Tula lasted upto September 1945.

Now Meena Vrischika was lasting upto July 1946 and PK is here. She became pregnant again and gave birth in Dec 1946 to her second son. Note: The approximate week of the birth of the baby, in some cases, of the day also, can be calculated if one goes upto five levels of Chara dasha. 

For example Sanjay Gandhi was born in Meena-Dhanu-Mithuna-Simha and Vrischika where the PK is placed.

If the Saptamsha is seen all these five dasha levels point to the birth of a baby. From Meena the fifth house is aspected by Jupiter. From Mithuna the fifth house is aspected both by Jupiter and PK.

Simha has PK which is Mercury.

Vrischika is the fifth house both of birth horoscope and the Saptamsha.

Death of Sanjay Gandhi

Her son Sanjay Gandhi died in June 1980 in Kanya mahadasha from where, in the birth horoscope, the PK is aspected by GK representing accidents and in Saptamsha, PK and GK are in the twelfth house, Simha a rashi of accidents from Kanya whose dasha was running.

The antardasha was of Vrisha where DK is placed in the Saptamsha.

In the lagna chart where PK and DK in the seventh can also show marriage but from Saptamsha the event becomes clear. 

The pratyantara dasha was of Mithuna from where PK falls in the sixth house of accidents and is with DK which also denotes death and is aspected by Moon, GK denoting accidents in the Rasi chart. 

Her father’s death on 27 May 1964 happened in Vrischika-Simha-Kanya Vrischika has Sun, the significator of father but is also DK. Simha has Mars BK. From Kanya, the ninth house receives the aspect of GK which is Moon and Sun the DK is in the third house denoting the longevity of parents.

Let me quote what was reported in the Astrological Magazine about this prediction of mine and is mentioned in my book Nehru Dynasty.

Her own death
- “One night Raja Dinesh Singh had asked me some time in April or May 1984 and I had told him that the end of Indira was imminent. He asked me if I could tell the “time-frame”, a favourite expression of his, I had to work hard, with Dr. R.K. Caroli, Mr. Anand Singh, a close friend and personal secretary of Raja Dinesh Singh, waiting impatiently. The calculations were done by my friend Kumar Viveki. My specific answer was “between 1st and 4th November 1984”, Indira was shot dead on 31st October 1984.”

Later, addressing an astrological convocation what Raja Dinesh Singh said, was reported in Astrological-Magazine as “He mentioned many of Mr. Rao’s predictions such as Mrs. Gandhi’s death etc.. which had proved correct". correct.”(Astrological-Magazine, June 1990. P. 531)

My basis of prediction
briefly my basis of this prediction which is remembered and quoted even today and which was reported in the Statesman. It was as follows:
(a) The New-Year Horoscope of 1984 had clearly shown a tragic change in the central government.
(b) Indira was passing through the Saturn-Rahu period. In Rahu-Saturn she had defied her father and married Feroze Gandhi. In Jupiter-Saturn she had broken off all her relations with her husband and their were terrible scandals heard about her which include the necklace she had got from the king of Saudi Arabia and the mink coat she had got from Dharam Teja, a shipping magnate.                                                             

Now in Saturn-Rahu she had antagonized  the Sikhs by hurting their religious sentiments. She had invited her doom. Her span of life could not be more than 68 years by any  calculation (see Saturn in the lagna). Saturn in her lagna was aspecting her lagna-lord: as her 7th and the 8th lord, it had to prove disastrous.

From her Moon, Saturn was again her 2nd lord in the 7th house. Saturn’s major period had to be a killer.

Which sub-period? Which sub-period, was the question to be decided. Moon in her 7th house aspected by Jupiter could save her. The Sun in her 5th house again aspected by Jupiter could save her. But Mars in her 2nd house could be a killer though being a yogakarka, it would not kill her. Rahu like Saturn is a fully qualified killer according to Hindu-astrology. Then Rahu with Venus, a killer for Cancer ascendant, in the 6th house was doubly bad.

Transits: In the ashtakvarga, as I wrote in the November 1984 issue of the Astrological-Magazine (available in Delhi in the middle of October) I had already said that after 24 September, 1984 Saturn in Vishakha (20 degree in Libra) had entered that  “crucial-area” again. Jupiter with Mars in Sagittarius was in the 12th house from her Moon in Capricorn. The transit of Rahu in Taurus was bad again as it was on her natal Jupiter.” There was no saving element anywhere. (From my book Nehru Dynasty)

Now see it through Chara dasha

Simha dasha (1983 to 1992) Simha is eighth from her Karakamsha which is Makara. It was Simha Tula and Kumbha period from 17 Oct 1984 to 19 Nov 1984. In Simha there is her DKN Sun. Tula is aspected by DKN with Mars showing violence.

The pratyantara is of Kumbha from where DKN falls in the seventh house. The sookshma is Mesha on 31 October 1984  aspected by DK and DKN. 

The prana dasha is also of Mesha.

I did this calculation after her death to make sure that my method of computing Chara dasha was correct. It is a very time taking process which had better be avoided and that time spent on spiritual pursuits. But to convince that jyotisha is a pratyaksha shastra. it should be done once in a while.

The trickiest part in astrology is to calculate the span of life and come to the exact period of death. It should satisfy an astrologer to see the fatal period if he can see this period two to four years in advance. If the actual death occurs two years after the period it should not be treated as an error but a near accurate prediction.
