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...

Like a tailender in cricket making a century, Pakistan has made history when for first time in sixty six years, it has made a change of government through ballot. It has had nearly thirty two years of military rule: it abolished the post of the prime minister for many years, five times, which was for nearly twenty four years. It has had nearly twenty prime ministers including the caretaker prime ministers and none completed the full term. Yousuf Raza Gilani might have broken all these records if the Supreme Court of Pakistan had not forced him to resign and would have beaten the record of Liaquat Ali Khan as the longest serving prime minister of Pakistan.

Technically, Nawaz Sharif is going to become the prime minister of Pakistan for the fourth time, not the third time as the newspapers are reporting. Looking at this:
Nawaz Sharif
In Office: 6 November 1990 – 18 April 1993
Total Duration: 2 Years, 5 Months, 12 Days
Nawaz’s Second Term:
In Office: 26 May 1993 – 18 July 1993 Total Duration: 1 Month, 22 Days Nawaz’s Third Term:
In Office: 17 February 1997 – 12 October 1999 Total Duration: 2 Years, 7 Months, 23 Days

So now he is going to become the prime minister for the fourth time and hopes to complete full five years this time Allah, army and America willing.

His present story is the tale of two eclipses from an astrological angle.

The eclipse of 11 August 1999 had almost eclipsed the career of Nawaz Sharif and now the eclipse of 10 May 2013 is threatening the career and life of Pervez Musharraf who had deposed Nawaz Sharif on 12 October 1999 and become the military dictator of Pakistan . It is a tale, all too familiar tale of the army dominated history of Pakistan. For a change the raucous election of May 2013 of Pakistan is a democratic landmark when one elected government is replacing another one, for the very first time in its history. Lovers of democracy all over the world will be happy with this development but Islamists who regard democratic election as unIslamic, as though it is mentioned in the Koran, will oppose it still. But the army will haunt the new government of Sharif inspite of the imagined promise that the army would keep out of politics from now on.

My old prediction
In a Hindi newspaper I had predicted the fall of democratic government of Pakistan in 1999 on the following reasoning:
1) The eclipse falling on the lagna of Pakistan which had debilitated Saturn at 23 degrees exactly on the degrees of Pakistan’s horoscope with Mars at 22 degrees in Tula aspecting it.
2) Mars was aspecting the tenth house of Pakistan.

Pakistan’s birth horoscope
It is easy to understand in the case of Pakistan why the army dominated the rule so long and why. Mars aspects the tenth house in its birth horoscope and the navamsha and is in the tenth house of its dashamansha.

The horoscope of Nawaz Sharif is not available but his date of birth given as 25 December 1949 is totally unbelievable. There must be a suppression of some one or two years if I go by my experience. When he became the prime minister in 1990 was he only forty one years ? Has it been said anywhere that he was the second youngest prime minister of Pakistan after Benazir Bhutto ?

Then the newspapers are wrongly saying that he is going to become the prime minister for the third time when it actually is the fourth time. See this.
Nawaz Sharif (Born 1949) In Office: 6 November 1990 – 18 April 1993 2 Years, 5 Months, 12 Days
Nawaz’s Second Term: In Office: 26 May 1993 – 18 July 1993 1 Month, 22 Days
Nawaz’s Third Term: In Office: 17 February 1997 – 12 October 1999 2 Years, 7 Months, 23 Days

The second eclipse of 10 May 2013
In this eclipse Saturn the planet of democracy is exalted aspected by Mars which shows all the violence during this election. Then the mahadasha of Pakistan now is of Venus, not of Ketu in the rashi of Mars or of Mercury, the third and sixth lord. Chances of Pakistan having a flowering democracy with all its problems of terrorism are stronger in this mahadasha as the bravest voters of Pakistan showed inspite of all the threats from terrorists. Wish Pakistan good luck.

Nawaz has taken fourteen years to travel politically between these two eclipses and arrived at a point in his life when gets a chance to achieve his lifetime ambition of seeing a prosperous Pakistan.


Imran Khan
Just as I was writing this piece, I remembered that I had received some birth details of Imran Khan whom we remember for his achievements on the cricket field. I did not know if I could accept it and had no time to verify it which must be done in the case of politicians known for misleading astrologers with wrong birth details. More so because I have burnt my fingers sometime or the other by using a wrong horoscope of a politician inspite of solemn assurances. Let me post that horoscope here and give some comments presuming it to be correct.

Sunil Dutt, a former student of astrology in the Bharatiya Vidya Bhawan and Sachin Malhotra a recent student very keenly interested in mundane astrology, exchanged some e-mails between them which they forwarded to me and came to the conclusion that Imran could not become the prime minister and could still be an important political force in the politics of Pakistan.

From 4 February 2013 Mahadasha of Rahu and antardasha of Mars upto 24 February 2014 Mars is in Mrityuhaga

I did not comment on this horoscope as it was unverified. Yet it appealed to me as his leading the Pakistan team to win the World Cup for Pakistan could be verified at once. And the aspects of Saturn and Mars on the seventh house show Jemima coming and going out of his wedded life. But, if the birth time was correct along with other details, he was entering the end of Rahu dasha and the last antardasha of Mars was in mrityub3aga. What was the danger I wondered. Would he be a target of terrorists ?

But why when he has not antagonized them but has on the other hand has spoken against Drone attack on them by Americans? But Mars did not wait to prove why he was in mrityubhaga. Then came the news.
Jumadi-us-Sani 26, 1434
Wednesday 8th May 2013 | Imran falls off stage at Lahore rally; sustains serious injuries LAHORE: Pakistan Tehrik-i-Insaf (PTI) chief Imran Khan Tuesday sustained serious injuries on his head and back after falling from a lifter during climbing up the stage installed for an election rally in Lahore.”

Nawaz Sharif
Just before concluding this piece, I got some birth details of Nawaz Sharif from a reliable source with Kanya lagna with Mercury mahadasha and the antardasha of Moon. It appealed to me but I will take time to verify it if I get some specific dates of some personal, not political, events of his life.

Let me conclude this piece briefly.
1) Neither the horoscope of Imran nor of Nawaz shows stable and long power holding. Both horoscopes show some fleeting moments of holding power and many more fleeing moments.
2) I was reminded of a very great observation of late Hardeo Sharma Trivedi on the types of horoscopes of politicians with unstable power holding. Both these horoscopes fall into that category.
3) At this moment of Indo Pak relations we have an Indian prime minister with a Pakistani origin and a Pakistani prime minister (Sharif) with Indian roots (Amritsar as a television channel showed last night).
4) Then let us recall that Nawaz Sharif and Atal Behari Vajpai wanted to build warm relations between both countries till the villain called Musharraf ruined the career of Nawaz. Both of those prime ministers of India (Vajpayee) and Pakistan (Nawaz) were born on 25 December which of course is not the birthday of Jesus Christ.
