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...

I have explained why I had to do a research on Chara Dasha to fix lagnas in cases where the birth date was known but not the birth time. It has been the glory and agony of my astrological career because I took risks, predicted and succeeded when God showered his grace on me and failed me when I became overconfident and, perhaps, arrogant, those human frailities which affect us, we the humans.

Among many let me explain through Chara Dasha a case which may be there in the archives of Delhi police, if they have archives. I have included in my book Ups and Downs in Career from where I will quote here first and explain it through Chara Dasha.

“In my book Astrology, Destiny and the Wheel of Time in the chapter “Crime and Guru’s Grace”, I have discussed it. Let me, on the basis of that experience, give the case of an ambassador whose kidnapping had become a major topic of discussion in Delhi in October 1991.

A friend in Delhi police asked me to work on the problem astrologically. He got the birth details without the birth time.” I had given prediction on the basis of prashna that the ambassador would come back alive but the Delhi would not get any credit.

The kidnapping case reported on a website, I now find, is described thus. From Wikipedia :

Khalistan Liberation Front
KLF was among the Sikh groups that  claimed responsibility for the 1991 kidnapping of the Romanian chargé d'affaires in New Delhi, Liviu Radu. This appeared to be retaliation for Romanian arrests of KLF members suspected of the attempted assassination of Julio Ribeiro, 62, the Indian ambassador to Romania, in Bucharest.[9] Radu was released unharmed after Sikh politicians criticized the action.

In October 1991, KLF kidnapped a Romanian diplomat, Liviu Radu to barter the release of two top militants, Harjinder Singh Jinda and Sukhjinder Singh Sukha. Also that year, the Khalistan Liberation Force (KLF) kidnapped a Romanian diplomat, Liviu Radu. Harpal Singh told TSS that he was instrumental in his release. He and several people active in the Khalistan movement decided that the SYA would issue a press statement that called for the unconditional release of Radu. The statement was published in  every newspaper in Punjab and in Iinternational Sikh publications. Eventually, Radu was released unharmed. Harpal Singh said that the kidnapping only harmed the cause and that it should never have taken place.

I told my friend police officer of a high rank that I preferred working on the birth horoscope and he should get me the birth details of Radu. He got it from circle police inspector on phone who collected it from Mrs. Radu and her two sons whose frequent appearances on television channels had made their faces familiar to us and had added to the agony of Delhi police.  It was 18 Nov 1938, Bucharest, Romania. The time of birth was unknown.

I prepared the south Indian horoscope of the day without the lagna, marked the degrees and fixed the karakas.

The karakas were: AK Mercury, Amk Mars, Moon BK, Saturn MK, Venus PK, Sun GK and Jupiter DK. 

What should be the lagna? I reasoned out like this:  I fixed Sagittarius as the ascendant for three reasons.

(a) There is a rajayoga in the twelfth house, the Sun and the Mercury combination giving him the post of an ambassador in a foreign country.

(b) There was an exchange between the tenth and the twelfth lords.

(c) For kidnapping to take place the twelfth lord has to come into play. Here Saturn-Mars axis had made this a big international news very adverse to India. 

DOB: November 18, 1938, 11:07:10 (2:00 East) Bucharest, Romania.

Then I prepared Chara Dasha thus:

Dhanu 1938 to 1940
Vrischika 1940 to 1950
Tula 1950 to 1951
Kanya 1951 to 1961

Simha 1961 to 1970:
I paused here and saw DK in the seventh house and reasoned that Radu must have married in this period to have two grown up sons shown by television channels.

Karka 1970 to 1980
Mithuna 1980 to 1985
Vrisha 1985 to 1991
Mesha 1991 to 1996

Upapada is in Karka aspected by GK Sun (in this case terrorist) and Jupiter DK.

In Vimshottari dasha the kidnapping took place in the dasha of Saturn aspected by Mars twelfth lord whose role must exist in kidnapping and the antardasha of Venus in the twelfth house and the pratyantara dasha of Saturn.

 See the horoscope in the south Indian format without the lagna, which I decided should be Dhanu. I then wrote out my readings and told my police officer friend who insisted, inspite of my strong reluctance, that I meet the wife of the kidnapped ambassador, Mrs. Radu.

I took my readings there and slowly verified them thus on the basis of Chara dasha. The account is in my book Ups and Downs in Career.

 “My readings which the wife of the ambassador had seen were:

1. Between 1951 and 1961 was he studying at some place other than his country and achieved by academic distinction?

Could not be verified.

2. After January 29, 1964 and before the end of 1965 or up to April 1966 was his marriage finalized?

October 16, 1965.

3. Between December 1966 and March 1969 was there any abortion or child birth or vice versa.

The first son was born in 1967, then there was an abortion and the second son was born in August 1970.

4. Had he studied foreign languages other than his mother tongue?

5. Between 1970 and 1980 mostly out of his country? 

1970 to 1973 in India and 1976-78 in Ceylon.

6. Between 1980 and 1985 sharp changes in career?

1979 Romanian T.V. till 1990.

7. Is there a sister younger to him?

Only one brother elder to him.

8. He is either the first child or the first male child in the family.

Has an elder brother.

The additional information passed on was:

(a) Mrs. “A” was born on September, 1940 between 9.00 and 9.30 in the morning, Bucharest.

(b) A brother younger to her died. She is the eldest.

(c) The ambassador’s mother died when he was only six years old. His father died on January 1 or 2, 1978. (d) First son was born on October 22, 1967 at 1.20 p.m., Bucharest.

(e) The second son was born on August 26, 1970 Delhi, India between 6.00 and 6.30 a.m.”

Then I came home prepared the horoscopes of her two sons on which I relied more, her own and finally decided what degrees of Dhanu it should be and gave further readings to the police officer who passed in on to Mrs. Radu, I presume, though I was not sure.

The final readings were:

My readings were summarized by my friend thus:

(a) The hostage seemed to have been lodged in South-West direction from his house.

(b) The hostage may not be in Delhi.

(c) He could be in Ajmer or in any other pilgrim town of Rajasthan.

(d) Some positive indications about his captivity are likely to be known by 27th October. (Mercury retrograding).

(e) The star position of Mrs “A” and her two sons indicate that:

(i) His release will be delayed may take up to end of November 1991.

(ii) Calls for hard bargaining between abductors and negotiators.

(iii) His health would deteriorate.

(iv) He is likely to come back alive, but with ruined health.

(f) No danger to his life.

Mercury entered Dhanu on 26 November 1991 and ambassador Radu, released by Khalistan terrorists reached home without the Delhi police getting any credit on that day.

Now work on Chara Dasha as I have discussed in the series on the basis of the final horoscope of Radu I prepared which is given here.
