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 other day some astrologers sitting at my place spoke again of the correct horoscope of  Atal Behari Vajpayee telling me that three astrologers found it an occasion recently to write about his horoscope insisting that it had to be and was, Tula (Libra) lagna.

I told them not to waste their time to search the horoscopes of Indian politicians and now, of Indian cricketers, ever since under 18 cricket has become so important for the shaping the careers of these cricketers. I will not reel off their stories excepting telling  here  that one famous contemporary cricketers now described as 25 years old is actually 29 years. Thereby hangs a tale which had better remain untold.

Coming to the horoscope of Atalji , as early as 1980 a member of the Rajya Sabha Raja Saheb Maqsoodpur, known as J.K.P.N. Singh. gave  me his horoscope with Atalji’s year of birth as 1926 which was the year displayed even on government website for more years till Atalji retired from politics. Now it has been corrected as 1924. If you can, get some old issues of some astrological magazines published from Delhi and you see the year mentioned as 1925 with Tula lagna and “great successful predictions” about him. In astrology these days it is either taxidermy when an astrologer fits into his imaginary horoscope of a political leader all known facts into it, stuff it with astrological jargon and justifies it or pure guessology based on known contemporary political facts. Why cannot these astrologers use their common sense first and search a biography of these politicians, not the internet, and check some facts and  even  birth details, if given there ?

Later, the same politician gave me another horoscope of Atalji with Tula lagna and the year of birth as 1925. I again rejected it saying that it would give him education in science, with physics as a main subject.

These days, now when Atalji has been awarded Bharat Ratna, that controversy has been revived by as many as four astrologers, my young friend told me, giving him Tula lagna but with the year of birth correctly 1924. I said it was wrong again as it would give him education in botany, biology and not what he got.

In the verification of any horoscope, start first with the education a man received, if he is educated--a weak spot of most of the astrologers who cannot do this vital verification.

I narrated to the astrologers how I went on rejecting the horoscope of Atalji till an astrologer friend of mine from Madhya Pradesh offered to get me the horoscope of Atalji from his family in Gwalior.  The one he gave me convinced me about its correctness. Later, Sri Murli Manohar Joshi gave me the same horoscope, though I know, that he gave 1925 as the year of birth to other astrologers !

I accepted it the 1924 as birth year with Vrischika lagna, sometime in 1990. It shows education in political science and law.  In 1995 when in Houston in USA, a Hindu association invited me to speak before their gathering, I gave a prediction that in  1996, a weak BJP would get a chance to form a government at centre though a wobbly one.  In 1996, in a television programme I gave this prediction in bold tones.( see the article in the Hindustan (the Hindi sister of the Hindustan Times) of 26 December 1999 in which my prediction of April 1996 is reproduced and the correct horoscope of Atalji as given in his biography, now available can be double checked but there are those astrologers who still want to argue, like

Oliver Goldsmith’s Village School Master - OLIVER GOLDSMITH
The Village Schoolmaster In arguing too, the parson own'd his skill,
For e'en though vanquish'd he could argue still;
While words of learned length and thund'ring sound
Amazed the gazing rustics rang'd around;
And still they gaz'd and still the wonder grew,
That one small head could carry all he knew.


Internet astrology
In astrology, with many astrological magazines proliferating and the menace of internet astrology, there is a great danger of more and more village school masters springing up in Hindu astrology, including some Westerners who write on Hindu astrology and one of them recently wrote that Atalji had Tula lagna without knowing that the basic verification begins with education, then a job, marriage and children.

Journal of Astrology - Atal Behari Vajpai - Horoscope

In the case of Atalji he studied political science and law is a basic fact that has to be verified and those who do not know how to verify education with sixty percent success at least should learn it first.

Note: If the horoscope of Atalji  is to be corrected minutely, the birth time will be 05/45/50 seconds. Work on this basis.

Marriage and children

Atalji was “technically” unmarried and I do not want to go into this unpleasant episode of his having also an “adopted” daughter.

Atalji’s damad, Ranjan Bhattacharya is not at as “famous” as Sonia Gandhi’ s Robert Vadhra though  Gulam Nabi Azad had once made brazenly referred to some unpleasant aspects of Atalji’s family life and never apologized.

Sober Politician
Atalji is remembered as a sober politician with a liberal face in a party like BJP which then in his era had also the well known hard-liners like Advaniji and Joshiji. For this examine the tenth house. In Tula lagna with Rahu in the tenth house aspected by Saturn he would have been like the “iron lady” Margaret Thatcher. See her horoscope.

Journal of Astrology - Margret Thatcher - HoroscopeAstrologers should use their common sense in the case of a politician who has been in public life to judge it. With Jupiter conjoined with the tenth lord Sun also aspecting the tenth house, what image would it give to a  politician ?

Make a contrasting study of the
dashamsha of both Atalji and Mrs. Thatcher to confirm it. Then see the combination of seventh and twelfth lord , Venus with Moon the ninth lord giving an excellent rajayoga and of  Jupiter  the second and fifth lord combining with the tenth lord, Sun another though spoiled also by Mercury as eighth lord showing his long struggling chequered career.

Rahu in the ninth house is in a rajayoga giving position and it is in its mahadasha that he rose to the pinnacle of his career. Read Parashara Shastra to know the importance of Rahu in the ninth house and also Rahu in Karka. Mahatma Gandhi rose of dizzy heights in the mahadasha of Rahu in Karka the tenth house. Margaret Thatcher became prime minister of England also in the mahadasha of Rahu in the tenth house which is Karka.

See my predictions given in 1996 April and also in 1999 in Hindustan and translated by Anju Sachdev, along with scanned pages from the biography of Atalji given here.

The clear purpose of writing this is to warn young astrologers not to get impressed by the weak justification of some astrologers’ writings with poorest ability to verify a horoscope from basic well known facts and their total negligence of  some authentic  knowledge about famous from their authentic biographies.

The shaky condition of the major Political parties: K.N.Rao
Astrologers have made a mockery of the horoscope of Atal Bihari Vajpayee. Some so called astrologers happen/venture to take his year of birth as 1926, some take it as 1925 and some even as 1924, then they pluck the analysis done in newspapers and post it as their prediction, making still a bigger mockery of his horoscope and still a graver mockery of the sacred science of astrology.

There is this recently published autobiography (see Hindi extract below) of Atalji where he himself mentions that “his year of birth is 1924 but his father added two years to it”, still how the astrologers have given him Tula lagna, I fail to understand. The astrologers who have taken Tula lagna with year 1925, are not good from any angle, the year is wrong and so is the lagna. Atal ji himself  has written in his book that the day is 25 December 1924, Brahma muhurat . This was the horoscope given in Journal of astrology and this was the horoscope on the basis of which a prediction was given that from 1995 BJP shall come in power. In 1996, the BJP came to power for a short period of 13 days, but unable to establish complete majority, the government fell. But in the mahadasha of Rahu, still there was the antardasha of Sun and Moon to come, which are the tenth and the ninth lord respectively for his horoscope. Hence, it could easily be predicted that even after the government fell, with the Rahu placed in the Bhagya sthan (the ninth house of luck), In the mahadasha of Rahu, in the antardasha of Sun and Moon, he would become the Prime Minister of India.

And in Nov 1999, before the antardasha of Moon finished, yet again, for the third time, he became the Prime Minister of India. Mars being the lagna lord and the sixth lord, he has to face ample opposition. Kalyan Singh, the Ex-Chief minister of UP has decided to revolt against him already. This is the ill-effect of the dasha of Rahu-Mars, which is showing. When the Prime minister has to openly face opposition then it is also going to impact the other units of BJP. Moreover, the time is not good for Atal ji’s health. After 26 December, when Atal ji is going to complete his 76 years, he will have to face more problems and his health will also become a matter of concern. In Nov 2000, the Rahu dasha ends and Jupiter mahadasha starts;  Jupiter the second lord placed in the second house, combust with Sun and aspected by Saturn. Its astrological implication is clear.
26 Dec 1999, Sunday (Hindu Hindustan)

The Predictions which came true.
Bharatiya JantaParty (Lagna Mithun) - The Bhartiya Janata Party can be expanded as the “Bharatiya Janta ka pyar” (favourite party of the people). This party has reached its better time but the best is yet to come. After the elections, ‘the engagement ceremony’ will be very nice but there will be controversy with the ‘marriage’ ceremony (Chunav ke baad ‘rokni ki rasm adayagi’ to sukhad rahegi par ‘vivah’ ko lekar vivaad rahenge). It can be predicted astrologically that some smart balancing is the need for the party now. Steps will be taken by the Bhartiya Janta Party to develop its economic policy.
[Dainik Hindustan 21 April 1996]

Translated by Anju Sachdev

NOTE - The wobbly thirteen days government was anticipated by referring to engagement but delayed marriage.
