India entered the maraka antardasha of Ketu in Venus dasha from 4 July 2008 and within a few months we have been constantly troubled by terrorists culminating in the war on Mumbai on 26 November.
The pratyantara dasha of Moon, the third lord of the chart indicates that the trouble came from neighbours and from the water. Retaliation is expected in Rahu pratyantara from 29 Dec 2008 to 1 March 2009. As such the present antardasha till September 2009 is not very favourable for India and we have to pass through many challenges in this war against terror. Let us be brave and gear up for the challenges ahead.
Tithi Pravesha is a traditional method of determining the fortunes for a year. The Sun must return to its natal sign as the aditya (form of entity) does not change and the angular displacement of the Moon from the Sun i.e. the tithi is exactly the same as at birth.
