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...

Sir, Pranam
'' Recently one person wrote to me asking idiotically why could not the horoscope of Arvind Kejriwal in which he saw many rajayogas alone be sufficient. I cannot keep on educating such people by repeating that we are not in a presidential elections of a republic but a democratic election when hundreds of people of one party contest against hundreds of others. Such a collectivity is shown in party horoscopes only. Rajayogas in the horoscope of a party leader, if they are to fructify, can mean even leader of opposition or some other high position. There is no mention in any astrological book of combination for a chief minister or the prime minister. It is left to astrologers to infer it logically..''  Just read the above if it is meant for  me, I sincerely apologize I have no such intention to hurt you. You are my Guru and whatever little I know is only due to you and your books. Please pardon my mistake. Regards s.d
The letter I had in my mind was not of this decent student but of a nasty , cantakerous ill bred astrologer who week after week does “EMAIL BOMBING” and claims to have made greatest predictions without any astrological basis. Before dealing with the subject that let me quote extensively from my article.

26 January 2013, 9:05 PM
“An article of mine on the great Indian leader, Jai Prakash Narayan whom I will refer to as J.P. appeared in the January 1989 issue of the Astrological Magazine. It was written one year before the General Elections of 1989 in which this prediction was clearly made, when no one had yet expected the Congress (I) party of Rajiv Gandhi, to be defeated. ..... As I write this (14 September, 1988), Jupiter is in Taurus, which according to my own research in mundane astrology brings about, in post-independence India, radical changes in the central government, and then as Saturn prepares to move into Poorvashadha , the two major planets will transform the national political scene, through a poll, not a revolution but a poll which will have the tones of a revolution through a ballot.

Jupiter was last in Taurus in 1977, when something of a revolution through ballot had taken place; earlier transiting between Aries and Gemini, this planet, Jupiter, had taken away Nehru, brought in Lal Bahadur Shastri, whose brief tenure ended tragically and then came in Indira . Now Jupiter is there again and I remember J.P.on this occasion, particularly when Saturn is preparing to effectuate the classical “Chattra Bhanga Yoga”.
Jupiter was in Taurus when V.P. Singh formed his government and the Congress party sat in opposition in 1989. Jupiter is in Taurus these days again and the mood of the nation, though the elections are still nearly ten to fifteen months away, may be swinging against the present coalition UPA II in power at the center. What appears clear is that Congress party will find it difficult to return to power at the center for the third time to form a government.

But before that one should look at the New Year horoscope of 2013 which is warning to the central and state governments as the disasters visible with the concentration of planets in the eight house show.

This will be analyzed later but suffice it to say that we have a difficult year to face now. Notable in this horoscope if a bad exchange of the tenth lord Venus with the eighth lord Jupiter which is showing a terrible upset for the government in power.  Elections will be held either during this period or at any rate the parliament will be dissolved and elections declared during the operation of this horoscope.

Congress Party_BJP_Horoscopes

Along with these disasters, the country will have to be prepared for a change in the central Government and the digging up of all those cases which have been suppressed now and are not being investigated. ....Congress Party Horoscope -
THE CONGRESS PARTY- Coming to the horoscope of the Congress Party, it is now passing through the mahadasha of Jupiter and the antardasha of Saturn in which between February and July it will be the pratyantara dasha of Rahu is a clear indication of some tragedy and heart searching. The party is not regaining power in this period or even later when general elections will be declared. It is facing insurmountable problems in the antardasha of Saturn and in the next antardasha of Mercury; it will have to remain content with the role of an opposition party only.

BJP Horoscope
THE BJP - The BJP is now running through the mahadasha of Sun the third lord in the tenth house in exchange with Jupiter the tenth lord. Jupiter the tenth lord is involved in conjunction with Saturn, Rahu and Mars because of which this party has never been able to form a government without many coalition partners in the period between 1998 and 2004. This party may never be able to form a single party government as the Congress party had for many years since independence of India.
In its Sun dasha it is again nearing the power center in a coalition. It can therefore surmised that in the next coalition it is the NDA government that will be formed at the center with BJP joining it in a prominent way. (24 January 2013)

Note here: I have not used the horoscope of any political leader in the January 2013 prediction to see the rise of NDA. Narendra Modi became the prime ministerial candidate in September 2013, nine months after I wrote this article.THIS PREDICTION WAS GIVEN WITHOUT USING THE HOROSCOPE OF NARENDRA MODI.

In democratic elections we need the horoscopes of political parties only, mainly.

UK Elections
May 2015 UK will go to elections in May 2015 and we have no horoscopes of the Tory or Labour Parties. To make predictions on the basis of the horoscopes of Cameron or Miliband is unscientific, and it at the most can only give us a hint but that is misleading because the rajayogas and good dashas and antardashas will make one of them the prime minister and the other the leader of opposition.

Note: If anyone has made a prediction using the horoscope of only a leader and it has clicked, it is fluke mostly.

US elections
For US elections if we get correct horoscopes of the leaders chosen by their respective parties , like the Republicans and Democrats and any independent, that suffices.

When I was teaching
When I was teaching mundane astrology fifteen years ago, I always told my students that:
a) In mundane astrology no one known to me, be it Sri Hardeoji or Dr.Raman could reach sixty percent success rate of good predictions because they never had good and reliable data of nations and  important political parties and political leaders. Besides, they could not find enough data to do new researches in many modern areas of democratic era because what we have in our astrological books applies to monarchies only.
b) This limitation can never be overcome in India because we have leaders who float wrong horoscopes deliberately. There are many ugly stories I have referred to sometime or the other in my articles.

Hora Astrology
c) In Hora astrology, we can, after collecting correct horoscopes and even rectifying the birth time reach seventy to eighty percent success.
d) The astrologer is not infallible. He cannot change anyone’s fate.
e) Keeping that in the mind, one should predict with honesty is all that we can do.

In these days of mercenary astrologers spreading like viruses all  over the internet, email bombing is inevitable. Someone asked me to proceed against them legally and I am thinking on those lines now because one cantakerous fellow keeps bombarding his ridiculous predictions like the dictator of North Korea will die in the first week of January 2015 and earthquake will take place (without mentioning when where and of what magnitude) etc week after week.

Another fellow, keeps abusing all astrologers and claims that he and he alone knows astrology etc though he admitted sometime ago that he had learnt astrology three years ago only !!

Collecting correct data and sharing
Having got the facility of the internet, it would have been useful if these fellows had made use of this medium for collecting correct astrological data and useful information for great mundane researches in certain areas of great importance and urgency for our age like.
1) The correct horoscope of ISIS which is becoming a global menace.
2) Spread of Islamic fundamentalism through internet and recruitment of jihadis for ISIS  all over the world giving the horoscopes of  young men, and now even women, getting entrapped through different websites and showing how and why they fall victims.  What are the astrological factors showing it. Sharing such a research  would be so useful and timely. The data of such young men would be reliable as most of the terrorists, according to a writer of the CNN, come from middle class families, are educated and not from the poor class as Obama , the US president, wrongly seems to think.
3) Political Parties: The exact time of the formation of  political parties, their authenticity. As I have said I have four horoscopes of AAP and through each of them some event can be justified but no single horoscope among the four can answer all our queries unless we test it over a period of more than two years. It is what I had done in 1978 when I got the horoscope of the Congress(I) of Indira Gandhi, tested it over a period of three years and then made successful predictions using it .
4) Epidemics and diseases :We need the horoscopes of patients of swine flu and should work on this flu spreading through different mundane horoscopes we use like the Hindu New Year horoscope and different surya veedhi and lunar charts and should be able to distinguish between an epidemic and a mere spread of a flu killing people in hundreds only though the television channels have been making too much noise in India. It is not like the spread of plague, cholera or a terrible flu we had in 1957-58 in India.

Astro Meteorology
In astro meteorology we need data of wind directions and cloud formations in different regions in India to combine it with astrological factors to make superb astrological meteorological predictions which the IMD can never do and can never do even in future.

Since sports has become an integral part of our lives, particularly cricket, cannot someone collect correct horoscopes of these sportsmen, give some life events for verification for meaningful and useful researches ? It is not known to many that some of the famous Indian cricketers have suppressed their real birth year to become eligible for under 18 cricket tournaments. Again, proceed cautiously here.

But be careful. If your predictions about outcome of matches are clicking, there is satta bazaar gamblers to use it for their own profits.
