Recently a senior Lok Sabha MP from Orissa enquired about how long Naveen Patnaik would continue in power, and my reply was that his Mercury daśā is far from over and is responsible for his rājayoga. This daśā is for 17 years and started in 2000 AD bringing him to power in Orissa. Readers can refer to my old article ‘The next Chief Minister of Orissa’ – a prediction which conclusively proved the importance of the āruḍha lagna (image).
