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 late Hiralal Chaubey, a noted Hindi journalist, had revised his biography of
Chandrasekhar, the former prime minister of India, before his own death. Today, 8 July 2007, Chandrasekhar died in Apollo hospital in the dasha of Venus, a
maraka for Mesha lagna. Hiralal had promised to present me a copy of the revised biography because he had mentioned the prediction I had given to Chandrasekhar of his becoming the prime minister at a very crucial time in his career when Chaubey had taken me to him in August 1990. But he died and I could not get the copy of the revised biography of Chandrasekhar.

A friend presented a copy of it in 2006 and there is mentioned clearly with my name, the prediction I had given to him in the presence of many people in August 1990 that he would become the prime minister of India for a brief spell that year itself replacing V.P.Singh who was looked upon as a menace because of his notorious Mandal politics. It was the policy of implementation of a poorly investigated, fudged and manipulated report on reservations or the other backward classes of India, the Mandal Commission.

How can this happen in the mahadasha of debilitated Mercury was the question of some astrologers sitting in the large gathering at the place of Chandrasekhar who loved to have a gathering of people around him always. I had insisted that it would happen in the mahadasha of Mercury and the antardasha of Moon very suddenly. In Jaimini it would the mahadasha of Kumbha and the antardashas of Simha. In transit, Jupiter would be in Karka then and Saturn in Dhanu.

On the insistence of Hiralal Chaubey I had written a very long article,  almost six columns explaining the prediction in Hindi in the Hindi newspaper of Calcutta, Sanmarg, for which he worked as Delhi’s special correspondent.

Later, after I had retired, I had written in the Vishwa Vijay Panchanga (Hindi) that Saturn in Makara will lead to his fall. In the Times of India, in an interview done by Miss Mandalekar, I had said that the Congress would come back to power.

In an interview to Calcutta’s Sunday, a weekly, I had said that during the election of 1991, a prominent leader would be killed. That was Rajiv Gandhi who was killed on 21 May 1991.

Those days, unlike now, I used to do lot of mundane astrology and fortunately got so many authentic horoscopes, unlike now. I had a string of brilliant predictions to show then. Then I lost interest in political predictions. It was easy to double check the prediction I had given to Chandrasekhar with Chara dasha where from Kumbha, his Amatyakaraka, Jupiter would be in the tenth house.

I should not have taken that risk as I had still three more months to retire from my service. Yet, I did it because of my respect for both Hiralal Chaubey and Chandrasekhar. It remained unnoticed, unknown and I retired peacefully. Earlier, in 1988, in an interview to the Onlooker (Bombay) now defunct, I had said that in 1989, there would be a change in the central government on the basis of an original research of mine in mundane astrology. My explanation was called for. I escaped by saying that it was an academic research which I was testing. As government servants we are punishable under the conduct rules if we participate in politics and a political prediction could be construed as participation in politics.

Chandrasekhar became the prime minister in November of that year (1990) and fell after seven months.

During a visit to the Mussorie or Simla Academy, as the prime minister of India, he had defended astrology strongly saying that he had evidence of the correctness of astrological prediction and of astrology being a science.

I have to explain why I took the risk of giving the prediction so openly, the first and the last time ever, in an open durbar of Chandrasekhar.

In the briefest membership of the Socialist Party of India I had for two years because of the inspiration provided by Acharya Narendra Dev to our generation of students, I had met Chandrasekhar once in Aminabad office of the Socialist Party, Lucknow where he had come to stay from Allahabad or Varanasi. He continued in politics and mine was over after Acharya Narendra Dev left Lucknow University to join Varanasi University as vice chancellor.

But from what I saw then of Chandrasekhar, doing his PhD from Varanasi those days, he appeared to have the scintillating intelligence with sharp analytical powers of late Achyut Patwardhan, Purushottam Tricumdas but he could never reach the great eloquence in Hindi of Acharya Narendra Dev which was equaled  or even surpassed by Deen Dayal Upadhyaya of the Jan Sangh.

You cannot be in politics without being unscrupulous and cannot succeed without becoming totally unscrupulous. Yet, for Chandrasekhar I had some sneaking admiration because he had stood up to Indira Gandhi, challenged her almost, and got elected to the Congress Working Committee inspite of her opposition. Indira Gandhi, the vindictive woman, had her revenge when she got him expelled from the party and got him arrested during the National Emergency of 1975.

During his imprisonment, he wrote his jail diary in Hindi which is a great piece of literature besides giving some insights into lesser known aspects of Indian politics.

For instance, Indira Gandhi had  told Biju Patnaik that elections should be made so expensive that opposition parties should find it difficult to fight it ! That was the story behind the enormous corruption of her era, which has now become our national legacy.

I will narrate in the second part how I had fixed his lagna as Mesha on the basis of which I had given him the riskiest prediction of my life so openly and which was so well known to so many.

Professor L.P.Singh, his life long friend, former head of the department of philosophy of Gaya University who now goes to foreign universities to lecture on Indian philosophy, on Tantra, Buddhism refers to this prediction of mine often, even now.

Hiralal Chaubey, himself an astrologer, had given to him Mithuna lagna with which I had not agreed. After verifying the life events of Chandrasekhar, I had given him Mesha lagna, last navamsha and given to him what to date is my riskiest prediction. Not arguing with me, Hiralal took me to Chandrasekhar and asked me to tell about my prediction.

I will explain it in the second part as I have to go out of Delhi and am in a hurry.


Why had I changed the lagna of Chandrasekhar from Mithuna given by Hiralal Chaubey (see page 269 CHANDRASEKHAR ek lambe safar ki kahani VINDHYACHAL PRAKASHAN B 19- Gulmohar Park, Delhi 110049) to Mesha was the question I had to answers later and some of them in the presence of Chandrasekhar.

Let me deal with it partly in a question-answer method.

  • You are the eldest child of your parents or the first child of your mother.

  • Chandrasekhar I am not the first child of my father but am the first of my mother. My father married twice.

  •  You have studied political science, sociology but part of your education got interrupted.

  • Chandrasekhar I studied both and later I could not complete my PhD because I got involved in politics.

  • Between 1975 and 1977 did you yourself take a decision to leave the Congress party or were expelled ?

  • Chandrasekhar Expelled.

I gave my prediction to him thus: Astrologically you could not have risen to the high post of the prime minister in 1989 though, it was said that Biju Patnaik had hatched a conspiracy to propose the name of Devi Lal, the senior most among you all.

In turn, as pre-planned, Devi Lal stood down and proposed the name of V.P.Singh. But now with planetary position having changed, V.P.Singh cannot stay in power inspite of the mass hysteria he has created for himself through the Mandal report.

Chandrasekhar had looked at me with poker face without showing whether he believed me or not. There ended the meeting. 

Discussion with others was on the following lines.

A person who started his career like an intrepid socialist failed to rise higher because Indira Gandhi did everything to ruin his career. This is well explained by the presence of the tenth lord in the eighth house and the eighth lord aspecting the tenth house.

It was the period of Saturn Mars that he suffered the worst disaster of his political career. Here Mars in the eighth house of dashamansha confirms the reading available from the birth horoscope.

It started in the period of Tula-Kanya in Chara dasha with Amk in the third house and AK in the sixth and two malefics in the tenth house.

Whole of his Jupiter period he was the rising star which is clear from Jupiter in the eleventh house also in the dashamansha.

In the Saturn period, he felt let down, first by Jaya Prakash Narayan which grudge he did express many years after the death of that great leader.

Then came the Indira Gandhi’s blow to him and his career.

Now, it was the period of Mercury, debilitated but the third and sixth lord. It falls under the exception of Parashara.

The antardasha of Moon, the fourth lord of the lagna, vargottama and in the tenth house of the dashamansha was the right period for him to become the prime minister. It was now or never for him.

Being in the eighth house from Mercury, Moon made him the “accidental” prime minister of India when the government of V.P. Singh was brought down by BJP and the famous ratha yatra of Lal Krishna Advani.

Both Jupiter and Saturn were in strong houses in the sarvastaka houses.

I had series of arguments like this including the verification of his personal and family life which I will not disclose here.

He did become the prime minister in November 1990 and it was a rather ludicrous situation, depending on the mercy of Rajiv Gandhi to whose disgrace it will be always said that on flimsiest ground he withdrew the support of his party to the government of Chandrasekhar in which he had less than sixty men of his own !

But in that small period, he did nothing that could be called creditable. The nation was financially bankrupt and he was a prime minister whose crutch on which his government depended was monstrously too huge.

Was India a democracy or a joke so many of us wondered.

But vargottama Sun and Moon the fourth and fifth lords of his horoscope had to give him at least once what he deserved very richly during the Indira era as a Congress man and as a possible successor of Indira Gandhi.

History is a cruel judge. A man who might have been a great prime minister of India, had to struggle all his life to find his place in Indian politics in the Indira era. He will unfortunately get bracketed with V.P. Singh, an ugly aberration in Indian politics, Deve Gowda who as though had won a lottery ticket to become the prime minister or later, I.K. Gujaral who thought that a prime minister should always be touring foreign countries and never stay in India.

And now in the dasha of Venus, the maraka for Mesha, Chandrasekhar breathed his last. His death removes the last of a giant socialist who lived to see his political wings flutter in the void of Indira Gandhi’s opportunistic politics.

But I remember him as a dignified, mature and intelligent politician who was the leader of leaders.

1927 to 1929, Vrisha 1929 to 1941, Mithuna 1941 to 1950(Note: I have made no extra deduction for debilitated Mercury), Karka 1950 to 1959, Simha 1959 to 1963 (Note: I have made no extra addition for exalted Sun), Kanya 1963 to 1969 (Note: I have made no extra deduction for debilitated Mercury again), Tula 1969 to 1976, Vrischika 1976 to  1983, Dhanu 1983 to  1985, Makara 1985 to  1987, Kumbha 1987 to  1995, Meena 1995 to  1996

Second cycle of Chara dasha
1996 to 1998, Vrisha 1998 to 2010

My Addition to the above Article: 
The addition I am making now is to
show his death through the method I am discussing consistently. I am also showing why I do not make extra addition for exalted planets and extra deduction for debilitated planets.
He died in July 2007 in Vrisha which is aspected by Moon Darakaraka which is the dual use of DK as researched by me and the antardasha of Karka which is sixth from the
Atmakaraka Jupiter in Kumbha. The pratyantara dasha was of Mesha from where Dar-karaka is in the seventh and is aspected by AK. Mesha is also aspected by AK.

In Vimshottari it was Venus-Venus-Moon marakas in many ways.
