Birth and Education

Rajendra Prasad was born to Mahadev Sahai and Kamleshwari Devi at Ziradei, in the Siwan district of Bihar (26°14′10″ N, 84°14′53″E) on December 3, 1884.

He was the youngest child of his parents.
Although the arudha lagna is in Aries, the opposite sign Libra is stronger with Venus and shall be the functional arudha for his life.
Siblings manifest from the eleventh bhava from arudha lagna (AL-Ar). Eleventh Lord Saturn is in Taurus. It conjoins exalted Moon (Male, elder brother Mahendra Prasad) and has the rasi drishti of Venus (Female, elder sister Bhagwati Devi Prasad).

A meritorious student, he received his early education from Moulavi, an accomplished Muslim scholar, who taught him Persian, Hindi and arithmetic.
It is evident that by 1884 the East India Company had successfully destroyed the traditional Gurukula education system in Bengal Presidency (Bengal, Bihar, Odisha, NE regions etc.). The Hindu families had no option but to send their children to Madrassa (traditional Muslim School) where a Moulvi (religious leader) imparted necessary education. At least the Muslims were strong enough to resist the British cultural destruction and were kind enough to allow the Hindu children to come to their school.
Education started in the dasha of Mars (conjoined digbala badhakesha Mercury – foreign, other culture) showing that a kind Moulvi made him adept at language (Me) and Math/Logic (Ma). Thereafter Rahu dasha started in July, 1891 and Rajendra Prasad was on his way to get his Doctorate. Rahu is extremely well placed in the tenth house in mulatrikona.
Later he studied at the Chapra District School and T.K. Ghosh’s Academy in Patna. For higher education, he moved to Calcutta where he secured a scholarship at the Presidency College, for a degree in science. Changing his stream of studies from science to arts, he received Masters Degree in Economics in Dec 1907 (Rahu dasa Sun antara). In Siddhamsa (D24 Chart), Rahu is the lord of 5th house placed in 12th house in mulatrikona Virgo having aspect on 4th bhava (education) whereas Sun is the 11th lord in D24-Lagna giving recognition and completion.

Work and Study

After receiving his MA (Economics) degree, he took up the job of English Professor at Langat Singh College in Muzaffarpur in Rahu dasa Moon antara.In dasamsa (d10 chart) Rahu is in the sixth house in debility and aspects the tenth house. Moon is in digbala in the 4th bhava and fully aspects the tenth house Pisces (Ju, educational institution). An exalted eleventh lord Mars conjoins lagnesa Mercury and uplifts him quickly – promoted as the principal of the Langat College.
In Siddhamsa (d24) Mars rules the houses concerning Masters and Doctorate education. He would not be satisfied by his MA (Eco) degree and resigning from his job as Principal of Langat College, he went to Calcutta for a law degree in 1908 (Rahu dasa Mars antara). In D24 Mars is second lord of Masters education whereas in dasamsa (d10) it is also placed in eighth house (resignation). Yet an exalted Mars in d10 will not keep him without work – he doubled as a professor of Economics at the Calcutta City College where studies MA (Law). In 1915 (Jupiter dasa Mercury antara), he graduated with honors in Masters degree in Law, winning a gold medal. Both Jupiter and Mercury are in the ninth house in siddhamsa giving a blessing-glance to Mars in 3rd house. However Mars is also the 7th lord and will insist on a Doctorate. Much later in 1937 (Saturn dasa Sun antara), he completed his Doctorate in Law from Allahabad University

Legal Career and Politics

With the advent of Jupiter dasa, in 1911 (Ju-Ju) while in Calcutta for his Law degree and working as Economics professor, he joined the Indian National Congress. Jupiter is mighty in the dasamsa (d10) as the tenth lord in mulatrikona Sagittarius in seventh bhava. However, he worked at the High Court of Bihar and Odisha (1916 Ju-Me) and was appointed as a member of the Senate and Syndicate of the Patna University (1917 Ju-Ve).
His active involvement in politics grew to a point where it became untenable for him to continue in his legal practice nor his University duties. With the Non-cooperation movement launched in the summer of 1920 (Jupiter dasa Sun antara) he quit his profession and took to politics. In the dasamsa Jupiter is well placed and pushes him to achieve. It is also placed in Leo in the rasi chart in the ninth house (guru/father) showing that he will stand by his guru (Mahatma Gandhi) and will be a true follower. Unlike others in the Indian Congress who misjudged Gandhiji’s suspension of the civil disobedience movement due to the violence, he stood by his mentor.  Further, the Sun leads Jupiter as the anitya-karaka for Lagna. In the dasamsa the Sun is in the 8th house forcing him to resign; it conjoins lagnesa Mercury showing him the path to government and administration and is conjoined exalted Mars making him very strong and fearless.
In fact, the first Satyagraha movement inspired by Gandhi occurred in Champaran district of Bihar in Apr 1917 (Jup dasa Ketu antara) and Dr. Rajendra Prasad with the power of Jupiter behind him was there to lead Bihar into a historic phase of India. Jupiter and Ketu are co-lords of Pisces the tenth house in dasamsa. Dr. Rajendra Prasad was arrested and so strong was the agitation that the civil judge had to release him. It was here that Gadhi was called ‘Bapu’ and ‘Mahatma’ for the first time. There is no doubt that if Gandhi became the father of the nation and is referred to as Mahatma, it was due to the unflinching faith and dedication of this ardent disciple. Everytime that Gandhi would be in some dilemma, Rajendra Prasad was there to stand up for him – after all you need a Jupiter (Sg-Lag Rajendra Prasad) to exalt a Venus (Li-Malavya Mahatma Gandhi). In 1934 (Saturn dasa Venus antara), he was elected the President of Indian National Congress in it’s Bombay session. Venus is the fifth lord (power) in dasamsa and is placed in ninth house (mentor). Saturn Venus continued and he was again President in 1935.

The Bose Betrayal

A great rift between Jawaharlal Nehru and Subhash Chandra Bose threatened to divide the Congress. Bose wanted direct action and freedom while Nehru wanted a pacifist approach and sharing power with the British. In the Congress elections of 1938, Bose squarely defeated the Nehru-Gandhi group and was elected as INC President. Again in 1939 Bose repeated his performance. Gandhi and Nehru could sense the power shifting to the east (Bengal) and the public mood shift from mere power-sharing to complete independence. Yet politics demanded that Bose must quit and Nehru wins – this was the first defeat of ‘democracy’ – elected president of INC had to resign to make way for the Guru’s candidate. Of course Nehru was smart enough not to take up the Presidency and instead, Rajendra Prasad rose to the calling of his mentor and in 1939 he again took up the responsibility (Saturn dasa Rahu antara) as the ‘fall guy’ for his mentor. We admire the guru-bhakti of Dr. Rajendra Prasad.

This was a brilliant political move of Gandhi and caused differences between the Bengali/Odiya and Bihari people (Bose was botn in Cuttack, Odisha). Such a rift would ensure that another lion would never roar from the eastern horizon. Gandhi allowed a few years to cool things and bring the Congress together. When he was sure that this coherence was back in INC, in August 1942 he started the ‘Quit India’ movement! Rajendra Prasad was in Saturn dasa Jupiter antara and went headlong into the movement behind his mentor – going to jail and continuing the agitation. Jupiter was the opportunity that would lead to great success. He was arrested and jailed for almost three years – released on 15 June 1945 with the advent of Mercury dasa in Mercury antara.

Interim Government

Mercury is lagnehsa of dasamsa and is conjoined exalted Mars in a viparita rajayoga. Mars is 6th Lord in 8th house and Sun is 3rd Lord in 8th house – together they form Sarala Yoga and transfer this yoga power to Mercury, the lagnesha. Further, the dispositor of this yoga is Saturn, who is also anitya karaka for dasamsa lagnesha, and is stationed in exaltation in the fifth house of power and authority.
In the formation of Interim Government of 12 nominated ministers under the leadership of Jawaharlal Nehru, he was made the Minister for Food and Agriculture. Event date:2 Sep 1946 Mercury dasa Mercury antara Saturn pratyantara – dasamsa lagnesa and anitya karaka (dispositor) played this role. Soon on 11 Dec 1946 in the same period (Me-Me-Sa), he was elected the President of Constituent Assembly. He remained in this position till 26 Jan 1950.

First President of India

Dr. Rajendra Prasad being conferred with the prestigious Bharat Ratna award by President Dr. Radhakrishnan
On 26 January 1950, the Constitution of independent India was ratified and Dr. Rajendra Prasad was elected the nation’s first President. Dasa: Mercury dasa Venus antara Saturn pratyantara. One again we see the three trine lords of dasamsa working in harmony – Mercury is enjoying the full power of Sarala yoga. It has subhakartari of Venus (5th lord in 9H) and Jupiter (10th Lord in Sg in 7th house). Both Lagnesa and 5th lord Mercury and Venus are disposited by Saturn who is exalted in 5th house (power).
After serving the Indian Republic for more than twelve years as its President, he decided to retire in May 1962 (Ketu dasa Venus antara). In the dasamsa Ketu is co-lord of Scorpio (6th house) and Pisces (Ketu Mulatrikona, 10th house). It is placed in 12th house showing giving away or loss. Thus Ketu wil bring relinquishing (12H) of power/position (10th house, Pi) and/or end (12th house) of service (6th house, Sc). Further Ketu is in Taurus owned by Venus – hence dasa and antara was of Ketu and its dispositor.
He returned to Patna on 14 May 1962 and preferred to stay in the campus of Bihar Vidyapeeth. He was subsequently awarded the Bharat Ratna, the nation’s highest civilian award.


Dr Rajendra Prasad died on 28 Feb 1963 in Ketu dasa Sun antara and Sun pratyantara. In the rasi (d1) Ketu is 12th lord in marana karaka sthana in 4th house while Sun is in marana karaka sthana in 12th house. In the navamsa, Sun is 12th lord (mrtyu is in 12th house in navamsa) and is in 4th house with Ketu who is again in marana karaka sthana.
Thus ended the life of one of the greatest freedom fighters of India whose guru-bhakti shall always be a great inspiration.

arvind-manishFollowing a landslide victory of 67 seats of the 70 assembly seats in the Delhi Government, Arvind Kejriwal took the oath of office on Saturday, the 14th February, 2015 at 12:15’ PM IST at the Ramlila Grounds that accommodates more than 100,000 people. Unlike all other politicians who have followed the old British system of swearing-in at the Governor or President house (Rastrapati Bhavan), Kejriwal has, time and again, followed the American system of public oath-taking ceremony. Somewhere deep in his heart he seems to be a true democrat and connects with the people at large.

The Oath

12.10 Arvind Kejriwal makes his way to the stage at Ramlila Maidan to be sworn in as Delhi Chief Minister.
12.12 The national anthem plays at Ramlila Maidan as the swearing-in ceremony begins.
12.15 Arvind Kejriwal takes oath as Delhi’s Chief Minister, administered by Lieutenant Governor Najeeb Jung. He is the eighth Chief Minister. Chief Secretary D.M. Spolia announces that the President appoints Arvind Kejriwal as Delhi Chief Minister.
Manish Sisodia takes oath of office
Asim Ahmed Khan takes the oath of office.
Sandeep Kumar takes oath of office
Satyendra Jain takes the oath of office
Gopal Rai takes the oath of office.
Jitender Singh Tomar takes the oath of office.

All the ‘seven samurai’ of the AAP took oath in Taurus Lagna which is considered extremely auspicious. Further, Arvind Kejriwal was sworn in in Aries Navāṁśa Lagna which is technically, vyayāṁśa; Manish Sisodia, Asim Ahmed Khan, Sandeep Kumar, Satyendra Jain and Gopal Rai took the oath in vargottama Taurus navāṁśa lagna; Jitender Singh Tomar took oath in dhanāṁśa Gemini navāṁśa lagna.

Starting Speech

The speech of the chief executive at the start sets the tone for the government and spells out its attitudes, aspirations and promises. After thanking the crowd for giving Delhi an ‘Aam Aadmi’ (abbr. AAP) Government, Kejriwal stated that “People from everywhere, all religions, castes, rich and poor, voted for us” clearly indicating a strong Gandhian theme of bring people of all castes, creeds and religions together. It is becoming all the more evident that with the support of the strong Gandhian Anna Hazare, Arvind Kejriwal has taken the “Gandhi” mantle from the Congress Party.


For readers who are unaware, the Congress was largely led by Mahatma Gandhi to give independence to India. Since the Mahatma had no political aspirations, this mantle was inherited by his śiṣya (ardent student and follower) Jawaharlal Nehru. Nehru’s daughter Indira carried the Gandhi mantle when she married Feroze Gandhi who was adopted by the Mahatma and started her political leadership as Prime Minister with the slogan “garibi hatao” (eradicate poverty). This mantle passed on to her son Rajiv Gandhi and later to her daughter-in-law Sonia Gandhi. However, for some reason people have been feeling that the Manmohan Singh government was losing this ‘Gandhi’ mantle, especially when the staunch Gandhian Anna Hazare started a crusade to introduce ‘Lokpal’ i.e. grassroots level self-governance which was an ancient system in India which always had panchayat (five leaders of village) to govern themselves by their own social norms. People felt that the Manmohan Singh government had seriously deviated from the directive principles of state policy (Gandhian principles) enshrined in our constitution. Arvind Kejriwal was one of the members of this crusade of Anna Hazare. However he realised that the old “petition system” is not going to get them anywhere and started the “Aam Aadmi Party” (literally Common Man Party). Previously in 2013, Anna Hazare had not liked this political adventurism of Kejriwal and felt that Manmohan Singh would deliver on his promise for having Lokpal and Lokayukta which is the only real means to contain corruption in this country. Manmohan Singh failed to deliver and a storm brewed in this country, a storm that ousted the Congress and brought the BJP to the center stage of India. Now when Anna Hazare supported Arvind Kejriwal, the AAP was seen as the “true followers” of Mahatma Gandhi. In many ways this election is “very dangerous” for the Congress Party as it shows that the Gandhi mantle has gone from them to the AAP. It is as if AAP is moving towards becoming the new centre-left party replacing the Congress while the BJP continues as the centre-right party.

Kejriwal’s determination is clearly indicated by the swearing-in chart with the unflinching Taurus Lagna and Lagneśa Venus in tenth bhāva in siddhi-yoga with Sun in digbala. There is much more which we shall examine in a future article. Keeping in lines with the promises made during the elections, Kejriwal reiterated the following directives.

  1. Only Delhi: “Delhi’s people have given us their love and trust. AAP became arrogant and fought Lok Sabha elections from other States and was taught a lesson. I’m staying in Delhi for 5 years to work for the city” … is he going to miss the boat? Indications are that with Anna Hazare, Kejriwal definitely has the Gandhi mantle. If his vision stops him at Delhi alone, then AAP will miss the opportunity to become an All-India party replacing the Congress (I).
  2. Anti-Corruption Drive: “This time, we are confident that we can remove corruption from Delhi in five years” … this is the most important statement that the people wanted to hear. The anti-corruption line is back as Kejriwal tells people to record anyone asking for a bribe, and promises to restart the anti-corruption phone line. We wonder as to why anybody in their right senses would ever have stopped this anti-corruption phone line and expect people to appreciate that.
  3. Statehood for Delhi-NCR: Kejriwal said, “I met the Prime Minister and told him that we want constructive cooperation with the Centre. For a long time, the BJP has been promising statehood for Delhi, but they haven’t been able to get the chance. I have told the Prime Minister that this is the best time and opportunity to do so.” Now, this is going to be a bit troublesome as the 4th lord Sun in the 10th house does show an important direction of giving complete statehood to city but it is debilitated in the navāṁśa showing that it is not going to be an easy matter.
  4. Love for all: Kejriwal sang his favourite song, “Insaan ka insaan se ho bhai-chara” and stated “We see the 3 BJP MLAs as our MLAs. We will work for the entire city. Kiran Bedi is like my older sister. We will take help from her too. Ajay Maken has a long experience as a lawmaker. We will take his guidance too”. Āruḍha of the sixth bhāva (śatrupada) shows attitude towards enemies and in the swearing-in chart A6 is in Gemini, a mercurial sign. Mercury is the planet which preaches ahimsa, the path of non-violence and vegetarianism. Kejriwal is genuine and true to his heart and will not consider anyone an enemy – he seems to be following this Gandhian principle to the letter.

crowd1In addition to all that, he added a few lines to highlight sentiments about recent incidents of crime in the city. Before finishing, the ‘ex-income tax officer’ inside him stated that businessmen will not have to pay any unfair dues and he will make sure they are not harassed by officials – provided that they pay their taxes. Thereafter followed propaganda statements like ending the ‘red-light’ culture and slogan shouting evoking popular sentiments including wishing the best of luck to the Indian Cricket team.


AAP expels Yogendra Yadav, Prashant Bhushan

YADAV_2380169fThe Hindu reports
Ahead of their expulsion both Mr. Bhushan and Mr. Yadav had sent scathing responses to the showcause notices issued to them by the party’s national disciplinary committee.
AAP Viewpoint: “The party’s national disciplinary committee has taken a decision to expel Prashant Bhusan, Yogendra Yadav, Anand Kumar and Ajit Jha. They were expelled for gross indiscipline, anti-party activities and violation of code of conduct of the party,” said party spokesperson Deepak Bajpai.
Yogendra Yadav Statement
“The kangaroo trials, expulsions, witch-hunts, character assassination, rumour campaigns and emotional theatre to justify such macabre acts — all this is so true of the Stalinist regime,” Mr. Yadav said in his reply.
Mr. Bhushan Statement
Mr. Bhushan also hit back against the disciplinary committee, accusing its members Pankaj Gupta of accepting donations from dubious companies and Ashish Khetan of doing a “paid news” story, favouring a company. He also said that the panel, which he had headed until last month, was reconstituted illegally. “I am not aware who has constituted this National Disciplinary Committee,” ” he said.

21 April, 2015 Is India’s Aam Admi Party no place for intellectuals?


Soutik Biswas Delhi correspondent of BBC reports
I don’t know whether Arvind Kejriwal, leader of India’s anti-corruption Aam Admi Party (AAP), would agree with Mr Havel. But many believe that Monday’s midnight expulsion of four senior members of the party, including founder members Yogendra Yadav and Prashant Bhushan, marks the retreat of “intellectual politics” and dissent in a party which rode to power in the capital, Delhi, promising an invigorating narrative of corruption-free, democratic politics.
Mr Yadav is a leading psephologist and political scientist, while Mr Bhushan is a well-respected lawyer. Anand Kumar, another senior member who was also expelled, is a sociologist. They believe that a cult of personality has grown around Mr Kejriwal, and according to Mr Bhushan, the “dreams of a movement have been shattered by a small coterie and a dictator”.
Arun Kumar, a Delhi-based economist and a party supporter, regrets that the “intellectual climate and democratic culture on which the party was founded is gradually diminishing. It seems real intellectuals are posing insecurity to Arvind Kejriwal”.

I am not any BJP member or supporter as in principle I am not inclined to politics or politicians. If I had my way, it would be Ram Rājya with just one divine incarnation ruling the land for life and there would be no need for any corruption of any sort. But that’s just day-dreaming and will not happen for many centuries in India.

The Candidates

Coming back to elections in New Delhi, we have three Chief Minister hopefuls –

Kiran BediKejriwalAjay Maken

Kiran Bedi b. June 9, 1949 at 2:10 pm in Amritsar, India (74 E 51′, 31 N 37′). She is under Saturn daśā Venus antardaśā Saturn pratyantara in Utpanna Vimśottari daśā. This modified Vimśottari daśā is used as Moon is in the third house in her chart. Saturn is a yogakāraka planet generating a powerful Vimala viparīta yoga. In addition, it is the lord of 5th house (power) in dasāṁśa exalted in lagna. This exalted śani will bring her to power just as it has already propelled her as the face of the BJP to head the Delhi Elections.


Arvind Kejriwal b. August 16, 1968 at 11:46 pm in Hissar, India (75 E 43′, 29 N 10′). He is under Jupiter daśā Venus antardaśā and the worst Ketu Pratyantara. Ketu is māraka for the chart and is debilitated in 5th house in navāṁśa afflicting Mercury which is the giver of power. Ketu shows mistakes and impulsive decisions that will prove to be very costly in the political arena.
As indicated in my previous article, his star will shine only till this Venus antardaśā i.e. 23 Feb 2015. Thereafter, Sun antardaśā will come and this saṅkrānti doṣa will catch him and force him to change his clothes – कपडा बदलना पडेगा.


Ajay Maken b. Jan 12, 1964 at 10:30 am (speculative, see notes below) in New Delhi, India (77 E 12′, 28 N 36′). He is under Mars daśā Venus antara Jupiter pratyantara. Mars is a rājayoga giver in this chart as it is exalted malefic in the 12th house. His wife is very lucky for him as the upapada is in the house of luck (9th bhāva) and yogakāraka Venus is in lagna. There is no doubt that the Congress party has done well to choose him as their leader for Delhi. With a strong Saturn as lagneśa in the 12th house he has the capacity to rout his challengers but the time does not favour him very much. Given the storm that is propelling the BJP he will do well to improve the figures of the Congress from the dismal showing in the previous elections to a double digit figure … say 12 seats.
A praśna chart was used to determine approximate birth time. Praśna Data: Jan 23, 2015, Time: 12:10 pm, New Delhi, India.
Janma Tithi = (a) Sun 8°52’ = 9 Navamī or (b) Sun + Prāṇa Tithi = 9 + 4 (caturthī) = 13 (trayodaśī) à Ajay Maken was born on Kṛṣṇa Trayodaśī (K13) … praśna seems to be working
Janma Rāśi : Praśna Navāṁśa Rāśi = Mīna, trines to Janma Rāśi Vṛścika … praśna is working
Janma Lagna Determination
Praśna navāṁśa lagna = Siṁha (Janma Lagna can be agni rāśi or kumbha); Praśna navāṁśa lagneśa Sun in Mīna (Janma Lagna can be Pisces).
Praśna Lagna = Meṣa (rātri bala rāśi) à birth is in daytime thereby eliminating Siṁha Lagna as that would be a night birth. Similarly Pisces lagna chart, which is all over the internet, is quite absurd as that would have given him a head full of hair and strong kapha prākṛti. Meṣa lagna would have made him travel all over the country for education and abroad for work. Of the two remaining options of Dhanus and Kumbha, we have preferred Kumbha lagna making him a very good man and an able fighter. He is married to Radhika Sehgal and has three children, Aarushi, Ahana and Aujaswi as a Leo saptāṁśa would indicate.

Numbers Nimitta (Omens)

The Office of the Chief Electoral Officer, Delhi, which is responsible for the conduct of the February 7 assembly polls in the national capital has rejected the nominations of 230 candidates and approved the nomination papers of 693 after scrutiny. See the number ‘9’ [6+9+3 = 18, 1+8 =9] which belongs to Mars, the god of war who also rules the police and military.

After scrutiny, the highest number of valid nominations was 18 from the Burari Assembly seat and the lowest was four in the Ambedkar Nagar constituency. Mars is agin leading the numbers game as the number 18 indicates. [1+8=9]

Madness has Begun

A total of 121 first information reports have been lodged against various political parties in connection with the violation of the Model Code of Conduct in Delhi till now. According to the Office of the Chief Electoral Officer, Delhi, the highest is against AAP. The AAP party which has openly said that it does not follow rules and regulations – they are ‘anarchists’ – Kejriwal’s words, takes the lead in disobedience of laws.

54 FIR’s have been lodged against AAP → 5+4 =9 (Mars is negative)
24 against the BJP → 2+4 = 6 (Venus is negative)
26 against the Congress → 2+6 =8 (Saturn is negative)
10 against the BSP → 1+0 = 1 (Sun is negative)

The Results

Delhi Assembly Elections 70 Seats
2013 Hung Assembly 2015 Predictions
Party Won Party Win A Win B Win C Win D
Cong 8 Cong 8 8 12↑ 17↑
BJP 31 BJP 44↑ 35↑ 35↑ 35↑
AAP 28 AAP 16↓ 25↓ 21↓ 16↓
Others 3 Others 2 2 2 2

My calculations show four scenario’s. These are with four assumptions which we clarify below:

Win A
This situation will occur if Narendra Modi storm continues to blow and takes over the elections. He is the face of ‘Future Hope for India’ and people will not let go of this hope so easily. Given his work load as the Prime Minister and the fact that he is going to be in a few gatherings, this scenario is very unlikely.

Win B
This situation occurs if the people have not yet forgiven Manmohan Singh for sleeping over reforms and not retiring if his health was not good. But this scenario is unlikely as we Indians are very forgiving and forgetting by nature.

Win C
This is the most likely scenario as the Congress under Ajay Maken is bound to improve its showing while the AAP takes a little hit for its antics. Kiran Bedi will prove to be a very energetic fighter and she has the will to perform. She is a go-getter and people of Delhi need someone who will deliver then from (a) endless traffic jams (b) expensive parking (c) crime. Yes she is a police officer and she will deliver them. That’s the picture. AAP will still get some votes as we in Delhi continue to get absurd electricity bills. Looks like some people in the electric supply department are playing lottery. I had to visit my heart doctor when slapped with an electric bill of ₹85,000. I will take up the matter after the elections and a new government is in place.

Win D
This will occur if during this Ketu pratyantara Arvind Kejriwal does some more of his funny tricks like sleeping on the road or tearing down electric wires. But this is unlikely as it looks like he has matured some.

ABP News-Nielsen
The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) is likely to emerge as the single largest party in the coming Delhi elections with 35 seats, one short of majority, an opinion poll conducted by ABP News-Nielsen has predicted. The BJP is projected to get 29 seats while Congress is expected to get six seats in the 70-member House.
AAP chief Arvind Kejriwal seems to be the most preferred candidate for chief minister of Delhi with 48%, followed by Kiran Bedi of BJP with 42%. AAP is likely to emerge as the largest party with 37% vote share, followed by BJP with 33% and Congress with 18%. As per the survey, Kejriwal is seen as more capable than Bedi in solving most problems faced by Delhiites. However, for “maintaining law and order and women’s safety”, respondents preferred Bedi over Kejriwal.
The survey found that AAP maintained its strong hold over economically weaker sections and Muslims. The party also had substantial support among voters living in slums with nearly every second voter in slums intending to vote for the party. The survey said AAP had huge support among Muslim with nearly every two in three Muslim voters intending to vote for the party in the coming elections.
The survey found that Bedi’s anointment as BJP’s CM candidate was not helping the saffron party pull in additional voters.
The survey said voters were firmly aligned to their parties with very few intending to switch sides. However, there could be some fence-sitters currently saying they “may not vote for BJP” but could change their mind later, it added.
Kejriwal marginally pipped Bedi when it came to who did more “tamasha” than work for development. The opinion poll was conducted with 6,396 respondents in 35 constituencies by ABP News-Nielsen from January 25 to January 31.
TNS for the Economic Times
AAP, led by tax-inspector-turned-activist-turned-politician Arvind Kejriwal, could walk away with 36 to 40 seats in the 70-member legislative assembly, according to the latest findings from polling firm TNS for the Economic Times newspaper.
Let everyone lose and we shall be the happiest. No need to feed their ego, feed their spiritual growth
We admit that the prediction was completely wrong and the BJP has been defeated due to taking Kiran Bedi as their Chief Minister candidate at the last minute. One lesson we learn from this is not to take a chart at the face value without verifying the divisions. It is evident that Kiran Bedi’s dasamsa is wrong and the exalted Saturn is not her rajayoga-karaka but must be her enemy planet. D10 lagna could be either Virgo or Scorpio. Anyway, it is time she retired and allowed the regular BJP people to get back to their work. It was a 44 win situation until she entered the fray …now looks like they may just about get a double digit figure.

rahuThe Amātyakāraka (AmK) is the ‘Minister’ in a nativity’s chessboard called aṣṭa-charakāraka which controls his career and the expansion of his soul in this domain of mundane life. Rāhu is the most important planet for politicians and anyone having Rāhu as amātyakāraka or associating with the AmK is definitely blessed with Machiavellian manipulation ability. Rāhu is the maker of Prime Ministers, especially in India which has an exalted 10th Lord Rāhu (politician, leader of nation) in Lagna (throne). People should stop looking at politics as a place for saints and stop measuring politicians with saintly qualities like speaking the truth, abstaining from extra-marital relationships (or the extreme thing like celibacy) and being a beggar or rich man. These are sadhu qualities, not those of politicians. These things do not matter in a politician. What matters is his gambler like ability to change a losing hand into a winning hand, to change the opinion of others by speaking what is just right to do so, and most important, to be a statesman and deliver on the aspirations of the people he leads – by hook or by crook. The finest example we have for political rise and power to change the entire system is that of Śrī Kṛṣṇa himself! Lagneśa Venus conjoins Rāhu and Amātyakāraka Saturn is aspected by Rāhu (graha dṛṣṭi). Śrī Kṛṣṇa did not like Machiavellian politics, Saturn is his amātyakāraka, but was not who would get defeated by politicians as his lagneśa Venus conjoins Rāhu.

Indian Prime Ministers

Let us take some cases of the past.


Jawaharlal Nehru
Jawaharlal Nehru with exalted Rāhu as amātyakāraka outmanoeuvred all other leaders like Subhas Chandra Bose, Maulana Abdul Kalam Azad, Muhammad Ali Jinnah, Sardar Vallabhai Patel He went on to be the first leader of the constituent assembly and secured the position of the first prime minister of India. In addition, Rāhu is very well placed alone in Libra dasāṁśa mercilessly destroying his secret enemies. What is more important is that Rāhu must aspect the Lagneśa to have the power to guide the intelligence for politics.


Gulzarilal Nanda
Gulzarilal Nanda was ‘interim’ Prime Minister of India on two occasions, both after the death of the sitting Prime Minister Nehru and Shastri. In the rāśi chart, Rāhu is in maraṇa kāraka sthāna in the 9th house aspecting the 10th bhāva (political leader, sitting PM). Gulzarilal Nanda also had lagneśa Mars aspected by maraṇa kāraka Rāhu and therefore whenever death (maraṇa) of the leader happened, he was the one who was maneuvered into position. In the dasāṁśa, Rāhu conjoins the 8th lord (inheritance) Jupiter (guru, leader) forming Guru-caṇḍāla yoga (death, murder). Whereas Nehru had a normal death, the death of Lal Bahadur Shastri has always been one of speculation as his body had turned blue (suspected poisoning).

Of couse, we Indians are so callous about the lives of our leaders that we really did not delve into the details. Be it Bose, Shastri, Indira Gandhi or Rajiv Gandhi, we will really never punish the culprits. That’s because it is not saintly to do so!


Lal Bahadur Shastri
Lal Bahadur Srivastava Shastri shared a birthday with Mahatma Gandhi (Oct, 2 1904) and did not have this ability as Rāhu had nothing to do with his amātyakāraka Saturn. But just like Gulzarilal Nanda, he too has lagneśa Mars conjoining Rāhu which does give him the ability to rise to the dizzying heights of the Prime Minister. Unfortunately this terrible war yoga of Rāhu and Mars which gave him grand victory in the Indo-Pak war, also aspects Jupiter in the 3rd bhāva from ārūḍha lagna showing his death in a foreign land. We were told that his body turned blue because of the cold!

indira gandhii

Indira Gandhi
Nanda and Shastri were not ‘real politicians’ when it comes to amātyakāraka and Rāhu like Nehru. Then came Indira Gandhi, who just like her father, had lagneśa Moon aspected by Rāhu from the preceding sign giving the political mind which we have seen in all others so far. In addition, her Amātyakāraka Venus is in maraṇa kāraka sthāna with a debilitated Rāhu. I have rarely seen such a perfect combination for politics. She was the undefeated one, the one we called Jaya Ma Kali! Elections were quite meaningless with her leading the Congress party. Who can fight with Kali mata?


Morarji Desai
Amātyakāraka Moon is fully aspected by Rāhu from Aquarius showing the long political career. However Rāhu is in maraṇa kāraka sthāna which, as in the chart of Gulzarilal Nanda and later V.P.Singh, means success only after either death or destruction of his own leader. Morarji served as Deputy Prime Minister to Indira Gandhi for two years 13 March 1967 – 16 July 1969, before leading a revolt in the Congress Party to oust Indira in Rāhu antardaśā. His boss Indira Gandhi is protected by 9th lord Saturn which is exalted (powerful), retrograde (unflinching) and ātmakāraka (king). Since the daśā was of Saturn, he failed miserably and went into oblivion for a long time to emerge as the leader post emergency in 1977. He was PM in Mercury daśā Venus antardaśā from 24 March 1977 – 28 July 1979. Look at the dates carefully – it is again rise in March (Mīna māsa) and fall in July (Karkaṭa māsa). It is noteworthy that just as he had rebelled against his boss, so also did his deputy PM Charan Singh rebel and oust him.

Charan Singh

Charan Singh
Exactly like his boss Morarji Desai, Charan Singh was born with Rāhu better placed in mūlatrikoṇa Virgo in conjunction with amātyakāraka Moon. Birds of a feather, flock together. He became the 5th PM of India in Mer-Sat period and pratyantara daśā of Mars on 28 July 1979. He barely lasted through six months and just at the end of Rāhu pratyantara, he lost power on 14 January 1980.
It was India’s destiny which forces corrections whenever we deviate from the path of democracy. Rāhu also represents the pitṛs, our forefathers, the freedom fighters who died in such large numbers before we finally got our freedom, and that too without deviating from our sworn dharma – ahimsa (non-violence). Morarji Desai came to power in Rāhu antardaśā and Charan Singh in Jupiter antardaśā while Indira Gandhi returned to power in Saturn antardaśā. For India’s Taurus lagna, Saturn is the natural leader as lord of 10th bhāva.


Rajiv Gandhi
Just like his grandfather Rajiv Gandhi also had Rāhu in the 12th bhāva as the amātyakāraka and it aspected Lagna where the Sun was strong in all glory. The requirement for politics is complete. The Sun detests Rāhu and therefore Rajiv tried his level best to steer away from this profession but destiny dragged him into the thick of Indian politics, with the untimely death of his brother and the rest is history. Perhaps India is not lucky enough to have another lion like Rajiv Gandhi, who knows?

vp singh

V. P. Singh and Chandra Sekhar
Prima facie Rāhu in Pisces has nothing to do with the amātyakāraka Venus in Taurus, in the chart of V.P.Singh nor does Rāhu associate with the lagneśa Moon – which is why he was really not good at politics. But his amātya Venus is the bādhakesha in own sign which gives the complete influence of Rāhu since bādhakeśa is like Rāhu. And since it is neither conjoined nor aspected, by any planet, as bādhakeśa Venus will retain all bādhaka powers. It will act like Rāhu.
Just like Gulzarilal Nanda, Rāhu is in maraṇa kāraka sthāna in 9th bhāva indicating rise only after death or destruction of political mentor. His rose to the top position by accusing Rajiv Gandhi of corruption in the Bofors case and later stated that he never really said or meant that Rajiv Gandhi himself took the money! That’s Rāhu you see – he had the whole world believing that Rajiv Gandhi pocketed ₹60 Crores in the Bofors scandal. He became the PM during Venus antardaśā, and just after Venus ended in October 1990, he was edged out by Chandra Sekhar on 10 Nov, 1990.

PVNarasimha Rao

P.V. Narasimha Rao
The next is a great master with ātmakāraka vargottama Rāhu aspecting lagneśa amātyakāraka Mercury in Bhadra Mahāpuruṣa yoga. The entire combination becomes really deadly when we see a powerful viparīta rājayoga of Mars and Sun in digbala combusting all the high spiritual values of mahāpuruṣa Mercury. Rāhu as 6th lord adds the curry power to the boiling 12th lord Sun and 8th lord Mars to create a potion so deadly that out of the oblivion of retirement in his native village he returned to be the PM during Mars daśā. Viparīta rājayoga in the tenth house destroyed the Congress party and the BJP mage good advancement under the statesmanship of Atal Bihari Vajpayee.


With exalted Rāhu in the 8th house aspecting amātyakāraka Venus and exalted lagneśa Ketu, Vajpayee was also a very able politician like his predecessor. His ascendancy was largely during Jupiter daśā in Aquarius (Rāhu lord) having Rāhu dṛṣṭi and with the advent of Saturn in Maraṇa Kāraka Sthāna in Lagna with 8th Lord (retirement) Mercury, he went into retirement.

People say his lagna is Libra and fail to give a simple explanation for fall in 2004 which would otherwise be a rājayoga period of yogakāraka Saturn and 9th lord Mercury. Others dispute the date as 1924 instead of 1926 and use a Libra lagna and are still unable to convincingly explain why yogakāraka Saturn exalted in Libra lagna would have caused his fall. Face it, Scorpio lagna tries hard to keep so many secrets. Have you forgotten the nuclear tests? Even his right hand did not know what his left hand did – that was Atal Vajpayee ji. All top intelligence agencies globally failed to report this and even his own cabinet was left with tongues hanging when the news became public.

Manmohan Singh greets Sonia Gandhi at his swearing-in ceremony

Sonia Gandhi and Manmohan Singh
Sonia Gandhi with lagneśa Moon aspected by an exalted Rāhu in bādhaka rāśi had the qualification to lead the Congress party back to power in 2004. However she did one of the most brilliant checkmates in the Indian chessboard by making Manmohan Singh the 13th PM of India. Together they ruled India for a good decade (2004-14). It was the start of Mercury daśā that pulled her into politics in Mercury antara (1995-98) and she worked to rebuild whatever was left of a shattered Congress. In the second half of Mercury she led the party to power. Mercury is fully aspected by Rāhu who sits exalted in bādhaka rāśi. With the advent of Ketu daśā, her stars give way to the next generation of leaders that will lead India since Ketu, assisted by the Sun, breaks Mercury. Her health too suffered as Ketu daśā progressed. As for Manmohan Singh, the oil supply from Rāhu daśā is about to end this year as he enters his 8th and last mahā daśā of Jupiter.

Looking Ahead
As India elections progress, we need to take a fresh look at some charts of possible leaders for the nation keeping in mind that in the chart of India, the glorious Jupiter in Libra Narayana daśā has given way to the exalted Rāhu in Taurus.

Before we finish, if we missed any PM, it was not for any political reasons. The moot point about the importance of Rāhu has been made.

Arvind Kejriwal took oath as the 7th Chief Minister of Delhi on 28 December, 2013 at 11:59’am in the open field ‘Ram Lila maidan’ in New Delhi. All astrologers in various forums were flabbergasted at the terrible muhurta chosen by the first AAP government with the Moon, Rāhu and Saturn in the 8th house indicating various troubles and turmoils. However some did suggest that Saturn in the 8th house does promise longevity! However, that’s not true – Not in a muhurta chart – Saturn or any planet in the 8th house shows graha doṣa. Unless the Moon matches the promise of Saturn in 8th house to give longevity, it will not happen. Forty-nine days after he took charge of a minority Delhi government, Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and his entire cabinet resigned on Friday following a tumultuous day in the Assembly

Chandrāṣṭama Doṣa

This is what we had maintained at all astrology forum that this is going to be a terrible curse-like experience for the people of Delhi. Moon in chandrāṣṭama doṣa with the affliction of Rāhu and Saturn is definitely a curse and this is going to be painful. The water promise was really not delivered as the poor people in the outlying areas actually ran out of water even in the winter season when water is supposed to be surplus. The longevity is seriously threatened and I gave a maximum life till October, 2014 for this government.

Exchange between Jupiter, the 10th lord showing the leader (Arvind Kejriwal) and the 4th lord Mercury indicates that instead of being seen as a ‘wise, matured, honest’ leader, his reputation is going to take a serious beating and he will be seen as an ‘immature, impulsive, childish’ person who will drag his people around till they get tired of his antics.

Maraṇa Kāraka Mars

To add to the woes, Mars is in maraṇa kāraka sthāna in the 7th house of marriage and relationships. It indicates marriage (7th house – bādhaka) with your enemy (Mars). The support of the Congress (I) to form the first AAP government was very conditional and required that governance should be strictly as per the red-letter of the law (typically Mars attitude).

Instead of understanding and trying to discuss (Mercury is 7th lord) with their partner, Arvind Kejriwal threw the glove (challenge – Mars) in the Legislative Assembly on 14 Feb, 2014. Mars is not a planet that will back out of a fight and Kejriwal lost power.

Magha Pūrṇimā witnessed high drama in the Delhi State Assembly right from morning after the Lt. Governor, Mr.Jung wrote to assembly Speaker M.S. Dhir, stating the constitutional position that the ‘Jan Lokpal bill’ should not be tabled as he has not approved it. He had sent a letter to the Law Ministry of the Central Government to seek clarifications on the constitutional modalities in introduction and passing of such bills. A reply was awaited. Instead of waiting for the law to take its turn, Arvind Kejriwal took the law into his own hands by introducing the bill illegally in the assembly. Naturally, both Congress and BJP leaders who are mainstream parties and are used to the democratic ‘rule of law’ waved Jung’s letter and created a ruckus, demanding a discussion on it. However, a vote was forced by Kejriwal and the result saw 42 members vote against the introduction of the bill, while only 27 MLAs – all AAP members, including expelled member Vinod Kumar Binny – vote for it. Delhi assembly has a total strength of 70 and this meant a loss of majority by the government, and its fall from power. In simpler words – Kejriwal knew it was political suicide.

Magha Pūrṇimā

Kejriwal on Magha PurnimaIt is interesting to note that the day on which Kejriwal lost power was Magha Pūrṇimā! Full moon days are when the Moon is very strong. On Magha Pūrṇimā a person is freed from all kinds of sins and problems if he takes a bath in Ganges. Arvind Kejriwal was definitely ‘freed’ from all his sins and problems related to politics as resigning from power will prevent him from making any more of those ad-hoc laws called ‘ordinance’ which is a sign of dictatorship instead of democracy.

“For the Lokpal Bill I am willing to give up the CM’s post a hundred times” – Arvind Kejriwal on his resignation. What he did not say is that this is going to cost the people of Delhi ₹53,000 Crores based on 2013 election costs.

What Next?

Of course Delhi will have fresh elections and almost everyone is assuming that this will coincide with the national elections.

People will again have to shell out money for the elections which will cost a whopping ₹530 Crore. There were 810 candidates running for office, including 224 independents and each candidate spends anywhere between ₹50-70 Lakhs bringing the estimated expenditure to ₹486 Crore. Add to this the government bill of about ₹44 Crore and we have a nice election bill of ₹530 Crore. What is likely to happen …

  1. AAP will not return to power in Delhi, and will be the greatest loser in the next elections. Kejriwal’s calculations are wrong
  2. BJP is likely to come to power in Delhi with marginal gains which will make it a majority party with allies
  3. Congress (I) will be the greatest gainer bringing its numbers in the assembly to double-digit.

President’s Rule

After what we mentioned yesterday, those who can read between the lines, should have guessed that President’s Rule was an inevitable conclusion that the Congress (I) at South Block would decide. That’s exactly what has happened. This is the first time that the Capital will come under central rule since 1993 when the Delhi assembly was set up. The presidential proclamation, giving lieutenant governor Najeeb Jung the powers to run the Delhi government…expected today. More Info
If somehow the elections are deferred till after Saturn leaves Libra in the last quarter of 2014, the Congress would be real gainers. Let’s see.

Arvind KejriwalNowhere in recent history has anyone shaken the establishment more than this man who started life in a middle class family of good ideals as the son of Gobind Ram Kejriwal and Gita Devi, a well-educated and financially well-off couple. The exalted Moon in Lagna promises a good childhood. Further, lagneśa Venus is vargottama in 4th bhāva in digbala promising clean clear direction in life. Its conjunction with Mercury and Jupiter form Mahānta Yoga promising greatness and very clean mind-heart. The gaja-kesari yoga of the Moon exalted in Lagna and Jupiter in 4th bhāva show niśkapaṭa yoga – native is very genuine and of unblemished character. This Mahānta Yoga forming in ārūḍha lagna (AL) shows that he would enjoy a great rājayoga in life. Venus, the 3rd lord from ārūḍha lagna conjoins Jupiter (male) and Mercury (female) showing his younger brother and sister. The Sun will not indicate a sibling or can indicate a lost sibling as it is in saṅkrānti dośa. Note that this saṅkrānti janma dośa is a major flaw in the horoscope which can hit him when he is 50 years of age or after the death of father, whichever is later.


Mechanical Engineer

He followed his father (electrical engineer) to become a mechanical engineer from the prestigious IIT Kharagpur [Mars-Sun to Rāhu-Jup]. Dvādasāṁśa (D12 Chart) has Jupiter in the 9th bhāva in Pisces showing a very good father and from Pisces, Mars (agni, ignis, engineering) is in the 10th bhāva of work – father was a good electrical engineer. Rāhu daśā (1986-2004) gave him a very good start in life as it is the 10th lord in 11th bhāva, and a natural malefic like Rāhu in the house of gains shows someone who achieves by any means – the end result alone matters. However such an evil attitude is blocked by the four planet Mahānta yoga in the 4th bhāva resulting in a very dissatisfied person during Rāhu daśā. After finishing his engineering studies in IIT Kharagpur, he joined Tata Steel in 1989 in Rāhu daśā Jupiter antara. However, he was dissatisfied with the mundane work of an engineer given by Rāhu as the exalted Moon in his lagna will want to work for the society, to be of social service.

In Rāhu daśā Saturn antara (1992) he resigned from the job to study for the Indian Civil Services examination. Saturn as the 10th lord in the 12th bhāva, in debility gives suo-moto viparīta rājayogabut being retrograde it reverses this rājayoga to pravrājya yoga. Again, as the bādhakeśa in the 12th bhāva it is a blessing in disguise as it shows that he will steal the thunder from his boss – he has done so when he started with Team Anna but has gone ahead to form a political party ‘Aam Aadmi Party (AAP)’. Yet, it shows the loss of power and moving towards renunciation and spiritual path. It was during this period of Saturn antardaśā that he visited Kolkata and spent time at the Ramakrishna Mission. He also spent time at the Nehru Yuva Kendra, showing inclination towards politics.

IRS Service

In dasāṁśa (D10 Chart), Mars in the 6th bhāva gave him the first career direction as an engineer, but its debility failed to sustain his interest. Mercury as the 5th lord (authority) in the 10th bhāva (throne) would give him the second career direction. Mercury rules accountants and since he was seeking a job in the Civil Services, it could give him the Indian Revenue Service (IRS) which has so much to do with accounts and balance sheets. In Rāhu daśā Mercury antardaśā (1995) he joined the IRS.

Getting into the Civil Services is very tough but getting out can be a terrible experience. Consider this – at an average about 600,000 extremely well educated applicants take the preliminary examination. Of these about 10,000 make the first cut to the main examination. Of these about 500 get selected and among these about 250 belong to the general category. Success rate for a general category candidate is 0.04% – that is a really tough competition. There’s a joke among those struggling for this examination – “if you have an enemy just advise him to take the Civil Services. There’s a 99.96% chance that he will ruin his life trying to get in till he is too old and defeated to do anything else”. Now when you try to leave the civil services, the worst thing one can do is to talk about it to a colleague. Your boss get’s to know of it and they will find one excuse or another to ensure that you cannot leave. I never understood why this attitude. Arvind Kejriwal also went through such an experience when he tried to leave by initially taking study leave in Rāhu daśā Venus antara Saturn pratyantara (note Saturn again) in 2000. After his study leave he returned to IRS service in Mars antardaśā in 2003. Thereafter he worked during Mars antara for about a year and half.

But with the advent of Jupiter daśā (2004) it was clear that he would move to another career and again went on a long 18 month leave. In February 2006 (Jup-Jup-Moon period), he resigned from his position of Joint Commissioner of Income Tax of New Delhi and joined Team Anna (Anna Hazare) but had to fight a protracted battle with the department for many years till his final release in 2011 after paying his leave salary back to the government. While most of his supporters say that this was a means to malign him, his detractors question his intentions – if he is so righteous about government money, then why did he not payback his salary on his own accord. Why did it have to go to this extent? This is the saṅkrānti dośa of the Sun – money matters come under suspicion as the Sun is also the lord of the Sun sign and suffers this great weakness. But during the daśā of Jupiter this weakness is unlikely to manifest.


The upapada (UL) is in Cancer in the 12th bhāva from the ārūḍha lagna (AL) and Venus. The 7th lord Mars is in the 3rd bhāva showing a love-marriage but it is in debility and gets nicabhañga rājayoga due to the exalted Moon. It is likely that the first proposal would not materialise into marriage and that marriage will be with the second proposal. The functional UL should be taken as Aquarius (8th from the original UL), lets mark this as UL2. Since this UL2 is in the 10th bhāva, he is married to a colleague in the Indian Revenue Service, Sunita Kejriwal.

The fifth lord Mercury is in Leo in rāśi and in Gemini in navāṁśa indicating two children (Leo 5 – Gemini 3 = 2).

Politics of Reform

There is no doubt that in modern India, Kejriwal has been a major agent of change and reform. He is well-known for his role in drafting a proposed Jan Lokpal Bill and his efforts to bring and implement the Right to Information (RTI) act at the grassroots level. All this happened during the course of Jupiter daśā when he received numerous awards and recognitions.

Major Awards

  1. Jupiter daśā Start (2004-2006)
  1. Jupiter daśā Mercury antara

What blocks the top seat?

To achieve the top slot in any political situation, the support of Rāhu is required and this is one thing that is going against him as Rāhu does not directly associate with the amātyakāraka (AmK) Venus. There is indirect association as the dispositor of Rāhu, Jupiter is conjoined Venus. Therefore during Jupiter daśā this association of Rāhu and AmK Venus is activated leading to various sudden rise and growth in the political arena. Particularly during the current period of Jupiter daśā Venus antardaśā this action of Rāhu is reinforced and he succeeds in his political début in New Delhi. In any case this is the dvi-guru yoga occurring in Pūrva Phālguṇī nakṣatra, the janma nakṣatra of Jupiter.

The weakness of the Sun, which is also the lord of the Sun sign, in saṅkrānti dośa leads to denial of the top slot. This is a recurring phenomenon in his life when he missed the top IAS and had to settle for the next level IRS job. Once again in the Delhi State elections he missed being the top party with the BJP leading with 32 seats and he had to settle with 28 seats. His achievement is stupendous given the fact that this is the very first election that his AA-Party ever fought. Yet he refuses to form the government with the support of the Congress (I) being fully aware that any such relationship can completely erode his credibility. Question is whether he has the capacity to face another election, and what happens if that too is going to be a hung assembly with none of the parties getting a majority nor any of them willing to play ball with each other.


It is for this very reason that we had been advocating the case of a two-party political system so that the nation is saved the turmoil of having to face such strange combinations of parties forming government as well as the trouble of hung parliament or state assemblies forcing expensive elections that demand huge manpower and cost. Government can form two lead groups – ‘A’ and ‘B’ and all political parties have to declare which one they belong to before the start of the elections. Of course it is not as simple as this, but there must be a good way out of such a mess where we have election fever for four months, and then again at the end of it we realise the medicine does not work and then there is again going to be high election fever for another six months. When is Delhi going to get well and working?

Arvind Kejriwal is running a fantastic daśā of Jupiter-Venus combine and the transit Saturn is in the 6th from lagna and 3rd from ārūḍha lagna. Such goodies never last forever. Change is inevitable and in October 2014 Saturn moves on to the fourth from ārūḍha and 7th from janma rāśi … that’s something worth considering. Secondly, the antardaśā of the Sun (saṅkrānti dośa) starts in 2015. But till then and even during the next elections in 2014, he will surely make a great dent in Indian politics throwing the BJP and Congress into complete disarray. In fact, if Kejriwal chooses to take on Narendra Modi in Gujarat, he can give a deadly battle and can even emerge victorious! Don’t underestimate the great stars favouring him right now.

Details about the chart can be read in a previous issue of the Jyotish Digest. In the chart of Y. Rajasekhara Reddy (YSR), Moon is in Mūla gaṇḍānta in the 12th bhāva. The exact position of the Moon at 1°28’ is just outside the Abhukta mūla range of 0°50’ indicating that the bay would survive. This gaṇḍānta afflicts the agni tattva and Sun is the lord of the 8th house as well in this chart.

Y.S. Raja Reddy, father of Chief Minister Y.S. Rajasekhara Reddy, was killed in a bomb attack in his native Kadapa district while he was returning to Pulivendula from his farm house in a car May 23, 1998. This murder of father incident happened in Mars daśā Moon antardaśā in the chart of YSR showing the power of the gaṇḍānta Moon to bring sudden losses and suffering. Affliction to agni tattva also afflicts father and male elders besides son.

YSR died due to a helicopter crash in a storm when the chopper was hit by lightening[1]. The accident (Mars or Ketu) and death happened on 2nd September 2009 at about 9.02 am. The accident and/or death occurred near Rudravaram in his Rāhu daśā Ketu antardaśā. It is noteworthy that Ketu conjoins Mars in the 6th house in navāṁśa. Jaimini teaches that if Mars and Ketu conjoin the 2nd or 6th bhāva in navāṁśa, then the native is killed by partner. This can mean spouse or any other important partner or someone travelling with the native. In any case, it just proves that affliction to agni tattva, which includes Sun, Mars and Ketu shows a violent sudden death, a gaṇḍānta that leaves a vacuum and everyone in shock.

If we were to follow the planet in 8th house, or 8th lord then, Saturn is in the 8th house and in Gemini navāṁśa. The 4th from this is Virgo which is occupied by Mars and Ketu in navāṁśa.

It is also noteworthy that in both the examples, either the Moon is in Lagna or the lord of Moon sign (śubhapati) is in Lagna. The direct association of the Lagna with the gaṇḍānta Moon does bring the gaṇḍānta doṣa on the native. Yet there can be some peculiar instances where this may not work, as in the next case of Anthony Hopkins.

[1] Mercury rules natural calamities and lightening is definitely ruled by Jupiter – these confirm the natal position of debilitated Jupiter aspecting the 3rd house from ārūḍha lagna showing the manner in which death is to come

Jyoti Basu (b. July 8, 1914 at Calcutta, India – 17 January 2010) is an Indian politician belonging to the Communist Party of India (Marxist) from West Bengal, India. He served as the Chief Minister of West Bengal from 1977 to 2000, making him India’s longest-serving Chief Minister as of 2009. He was a member of the CPI(M) Politburo from the time of the party’s founding in 1964 until 2008. There is some debate about his birth time being 10.44 am, 10.50 am or even 11.00am. We have attempted the chart for Navamsa Lagna in Capricorn with Moon (like communist China). The problem with the 10.42am or 10.44am time is that it shows a very classy person who enjoys all the luxuries of life – more capitalist than communist. The 10.50am times gives Aries navamsa lagna with exalted Sun – very royal.


jbd1Jyotindra Kiran Basu the third child of Nishikanta Basu and his wife Hemalata, was born on 8 July, 1914 on a very rainy day (Moon). Janma Pañcāṅga: Āsāḍha māsa, Kṛṣṇa Pratipada tithi (Su), Budha vāra (Me), Uttarāsāḍha nakṣatra (Su), Vaidhṛti Yoga (Ju), Kaulava Karaṇa (Ma). He was the grandson of Deśa Bandhu Chitaranjan Das, the famous freedom fighter.
His father was a doctor hailing from the village of Bardi in Dhaka District, East Bengal (now Bangladesh), while his mother Hemalata Basu was a housewife. Basu’s schooling started at Loreto School at Dharmatala, Calcutta (now Kolkata) in 1920 when he was a boy of six in Moon daśā Mars antardaśā – both vargottama planets. It was there where his father shortened his name and he became Jyoti Basu instead of Jyotindra Kiran Basu.

Overview of planets
A name change can significantly affect Mercury in the chart and we see that Mercury, the lagneśa and tenth lord is forming the most powerful dharma-karmādhipati rājayoga in the 11th house with the ātmakāraka Venus which is also the 9th lord indicating father. Father (Venus) bringing about a name change (Lagna, Mercury) indicates a triggering of this yoga that will bring undying fame. In addition, this powerful yoga is in the sign Cancer and is also aspected by the Moon. This yoga is also in the 7th from the Moon besides being a part of the immensely powerful Chandra Adhi yoga formed by six planets – Sun and Saturn in 6th house, Mercury and Venus in 7th house and Mars and Ketu in 8th house. The vargottama position of the Moon in Capricorn makes this yoga three times more powerful. In addition, only natural benefic planets Jupiter, Mercury and Venus conjoin or aspect the Moon by graha dṛṣṭi. The Moon is also the closest planet in trines to lagna in Virgo and is also in the navāṁśa lagna Capricorn.
Fig: Navāṁśa Chart – Jyoti Basu
(A) Sun, Saturn (lord of navāṁśa lagna) and Venus (ātmakāraka, yogakāraka and lord of dasāṁśa lagna) are in exalted navāṁśa. This is a powerful blessing for fame (AK, Sun involved) and high position. It shows great political acumen and a champion of the poor (Saturn), modern Robin Hood.
(B) Moon, Mars, Ketu and Rāhu are vargottama but Mars and Ketu are ill-placed in the 12th house in the rāśi chart which is bad for the first marriage as it cannot last for more than 3 years and they are also placed in the 8th house in the navāṁśa which shows a dangerous death for every odd numbered spouse (1st, 3rd, 5th …etc).
(C) Jupiter is ill-placed in 5th house in debility and is also retrograde which although helpful for him personally (nīcabhañga in 3rd chance), is not good for spouse or mother (7th and 4th lordship) and children (5th house, significator). Such a position of Jupiter invariably makes one an atheist.
Early life
In 1925 he was moved to St. Xavier’s School (when in 2nd grade) in Mercury antardaśā of Moon daśā. Mercury is the lord of siddhāṁśa lagna and is in Scorpio thereby allowing the starting of education in Mars antardaśā but when his own sub-period came, he choose what was to be formative school of Jyoti Basu. Mercury is all the more powerful as it conjoins the ātmakāraka Venus in rājayoga besides being the lord of the day and the lagna. He makes Jyoti Basu a perfectionist.
Fig: Siddhāṁśa Chart – Jyoti Basu
After completing his senior Cambridge in 1931 (Mars daśā Jupiter antardaśā) Jyoti Basu joined the Presidency College. He completed his undergraduate education in English (Honors) in 1935 even though he preferred the last row with his friend Rahman (as should be expected during the daśā of a dire malefic Mars in the last house of the chart).
With the advent of Rāhu daśā everything was to change as Rāhu is the 6th lord vargottama in Aquarius which is the 6th house. This gives all sorts of successes and ambition as it aspects the 10th house Sun in digbala. Its position in the 12th house in siddhāṁśa indicates that it would encourage foreign residence (12th house) for education (siddhāṁśa). However the subject would be decided by the 2nd lord of siddhāṁśa which is Venus and it is conjoined the lawmaker Jupiter. In Rāhu daśā Rāhu antardaśā Jyoti Basu travelled to England for higher education in Law. He attended lectures of Harold Laski in late 1930s.
He stayed in England du ring the antardaśā of Rāhu and Jupiter in Rāhu daśā. Jupiter is bādhakeśa and in movable sign encourages foreign stay. By end 1939 he had completed his studies and qualified as a Barrister at the Middle Temple.
Early Politics
Jyoti Basu made an early advent in politics with his efforts to organize the Indian students studying in United Kingdom. He joined the India League and London Majlis, both organizations being communities of overseas Indian students with interest in Indian Independence. With the advent of Jupiter antardaśā in 1938 Basu was given the responsibility for arranging a meeting with Jawaharlal Nehru during Nehru’s visit to London. After Subhas Chandra Bose went to England Jyoti Basu was able to organize the meeting with Nehru. He played a brilliant role in introducing visiting Indian political figures to the leaders of Labour Party thereby gaining considerable political mileage on his own. Jupiter joining the vargottama Moon in the 5th house definitely opened doors that gave crucial political connections. What is more important is the dasāṁśa (D10 chart) where Jupiter is the dispositor of the lagneśa Venus and must make career related initiatives. Its conjunction with Saturn shows communist leanings. The influence of the communist Moon (Capricorn vargottama Moon – see charts of China) cannot be ignored as this was to be the lasting influence. Jyoti Basu was introduced to the Communist Party of Great Britain by another communist leader and friend Bhupesh Gupta. Jyoti Basu may have shown interest to join CPGB but the then Secretary General Harry Pollitt advised against it perhaps because CPCB was banned in India.
On 1st January 1940 Jyoti Basu returned to Bombay, India in 1940 and was soon reunited with his family at Calcutta. His parents vehemently opposed the idea of his joining the communist movement in India, more so since it was banned. Jyoti Basu made contacts with the Communist Party of India (CPI) leadership and made his way to join the party. The combination of Sun and Saturn in the tenth house shows that his work will not find favor with his father and maybe seen by some as going against father’s wishes. Saturn gives the results of the digbala Sun.
In about two weeks of his return to Calcutta, on 20 Jan 1940 he was married to Basanti Ghosh (nickname – Chabi). The event happened in Rāhu daśā Jupiter antardaśā Venus pratyantara. In the navāṁśa Jupiter is placed in the 7th house from kārakāṁśa (Venus is AK in Pisces navāṁśa). Planets placed in 7th house will surely give marriage as they show unfulfilled marriage karma from a previous incarnation. However Mars and Ketu in 12th house in rāśi chart (3 year block) without any planets in 8th house, and in navāṁśa Mars and Ketu in 8th house are very dangerous for life of spouse. On May 11, 1942, Basanti Basu died (3rd year of marriage) of typhoid. Venus as ātmakāraka does show some suffering pertaining to relationships and marriage. This event happened in Rāhu daśā Saturn antardaśā Venus pratyantara. Saturn is in 8th house from kārakāṁśa and is also 2nd lord of navāṁśa showing second marriage. The Sun as 8th lord of navāṁśa should have killed but will not do so when in exalted navāṁśa. Then this is delegated to 10th lord Venus, which is also exalted and the planet in 10th house, opposite the Sun is Saturn. Saturn prefers the 2nd marriage as it is also 2nd lord whereas first marriage is given by Moon (mother). This mother connection with wife is a strange mapping showing up. Death of such a young bride Basanti was a great shock to Jyoti Basu’s mother who passed away a few months later in the same antardaśā. Rāhu and Saturn are lords of 5th house (2nd from 4th house ruling mother in dvādaśāṁśa D12 chart). Treat the 4th house as mother’s lagna. Rāhu is in the 8th house and Saturn is in the 6th house conjoining maraṇa karaka Venus.
Upapada (UL): UL is in Aries in 8th house with Mars in 12th house afflicted by Ketu indicating a sudden shock. It is also placed in 12th house from āruḍha lagna (Taurus) and is considered weak. Venus is the lord of 2nd from UL and although strong in position, it is hemmed in a powerful pāpakartari yoga between Sun and Saturn behind it and Mars and Ketu ahead of it. It is quite a terrible squeeze which resulted in the early loss of spouse. Mars would not be as bad as Saturn as it rules the UL. Second marriage is seen from Scorpio and both Mars and Ketu favour this UL2. Mars aspects this sign making it strong. It also has two benefic planets Mercury and Venus in trines and all benefics aspect it by rāśi dṛṣṭi. Second marriage was sure to happen as Rāhu was vargottama in Aquarius which is second house in navāṁśa. Jyoti Basu married Kamala Devi on Dec 5, 1948 in Venus antardaśā of Rāhu daśā.
We are examining children from second marriage and need to see the 9th house from UL2 (second Upapada). This sign is Cancer with Mercury (boy) and Venus (girl) in it – two children indicated in this marriage. Method (2): Fifth lord Saturn gains 4 navāṁśa (Gemini rāśi – Libra navāṁśa) of which the intervening signs Cancer and Leo are not comfortable – count them out. Virgo is the first pregnancy in second marriage and Libra is second pregnancy. Method (3): The fifth house from Jupiter is Taurus which is unoccupied and its lord Venus is Cancer with Mercury – same planets again indicating two children. Method (4): Fifth house from Lagna has two planets Jupiter and Moon indicating two children. Jupiter is retrograde indicating that the child may come and go i.e. maybe lost after birth.
Finally, the saptāṁśa will indicate the children. There were no pregnancies in the first marriage, therefore we treat second marriage as the first fruitful marriage and see first pregnancy in 9th house (lagna is even sign Pisces). Mars and Ketu are both in the 9th house and this is conjoined the 6th lord Sun. In male nativities, the 6th lord is responsible for death of child. On Aug 31, 1951 in Rāhu daśā Moon antardaśā Rāhu pratyantara, his wife Kamala gave birth to a baby girl at Sishumangal Hospital, Calcutta. A few days later the baby died of diarrhoea and dehydration.
Second pregnancy is seen from 7th lord Mercury which is in 12th house Aquarius and should have been a girl child. However Mercury has a a parivartana yoga with its dispositor Saturn in Gemini indicating change of estimation – a boy shall be born instead. Kamala gave birth to Subhabrata (Chandan) Basu on 12th September 1952 in Rāhu daśā Moon antardaśā Venus pratyantara.

Contesting the Railway constituency, Jyoti Basu was elected to the Bengal Legislative Assembly in 1946 in Rāhu daśā Mercury antardaśā. Mercury is the lord of 5th house in dasāṁśa in addition to all its prowess in rāśi chart. Thereafter, he was Secretary, West Bengal Provincial Committee of Communist Party of India (1952 – 57). Jupiter daśā started in November 1953 and was not going to be very helpful for him as it is neither very well placed in rāśi chart nor is it a strong benefactor in the dasāṁśa. As the 8th lord of dasāṁśa Jupiter will always pull him a few notches lower than what he deserves. However, it cannot deny the continuity of rājayoga for two reasons – (1) it is the dispositor of lagneśa Venus and (2) it is in the 2nd house conjoined the yogakāraka tenth lord Saturn.
It is a noteworthy fact that ever since the West Bengal Assembly was started, he was elected to it till his retirement in 1999. He was elected to West Bengal Legislative Assembly in 1952, 1957, 1962,1967, 1969, 1971, 1977, 1982, 1987, 1991 and 1996. There was a small gap in this unbroken string of victories, between 1972 – 77 when Siddhartha Shankar Ray was leading the Congress and he was defeated in elections, communists still say that ‘the election was rigged by Congress Party’ (bad losers). He was clever to retain his Barranagar Assembly seat upto 1971 and then after the first taste of defeat (1972-77), in 1977 he changed his constituency and contested from Satgachia, South 24 Parganas.
The entire period of Jupiter daśā (1953 – 69) was one big struggle for power in Bengal but for the most time he had to contend as the leader of the opposition. He served as the Leader of Opposition for a decade (1957 – 67). His admirable eloquence both as an M.L.A and the Leader of Opposition drew the attention of Dr. B.C Roy and he had a strong affection for this young leader though his stand was completely against the policies of the then State Govt. run by Dr. Roy. Jyoti Basu was a master at organizing agitations and would agitate at the fall of a hat.
At the very end of Jupiter daśā, in last Rāhu antardaśā, he finally succeeded. Rāhu is too strong in the chart being vargottama in own sign and is also the co-lord of 10th house (power, position) in dasāṁśa chart. This co-lordship with Saturn joining Jupiter indicates political power will have to be shared. In this antardaśā of Rāhu Jyoti Basu was Deputy Chief Minister in the United Front governments after defeating the Congress Party. First under Prafulla Chandra Ghosh (November 2, 1967 to February 20, 1968) and later under Ajoy Mukherjee of the Bangla Congress (February 25, 1969 to March 19, 1970). It is noteworthy that both times the power came when the Sun was transiting Aquarius, the sign occupied by vargottama Rāhu in February. This was the start of the rājayoga.
Saturn is a yogakāraka for the dasāṁśa but is conjoined Jupiter indicating that the first part of its daśā will see a predominance of the results of Jupiter. In the rāśi chart Saturn joins the Sun in the 10th house to promise a powerful rājayoga but the first part shall be the opposite as Sun and Saturn are enemies and Sun is also the lord of the 12th house (fall from position) whose result Saturn will have to yield. In Saturn daśā Saturn antardaśā (1972) Congress Party returned to power in West Bengal under the stewardship of Siddhartha Shankar Roy[1]. One big casualty in the Congress juggernaut was Jyoti Basu who was defeated from Baranagar and complained about unprecedented rigging. Then Indira Gandhi’s blunder of emergency led to the fall of the Congress. The whole picture becomes very clear if we use dasāṁśa Nārāyaṇa daśā.

Chief Minister
From June 21, 1977 to November 6, 2000, Basu served as the Chief Minister of West Bengal for the Left Front government. This great rājayoga started with Saturn daśā Venus antardaśā and continued through Mercury daśā till the advent of Jupiter antardaśā when he let go of active office. Jupiter is the 8th lord in dasāṁśa and will encourage retirement. In the Nārāyaṇa daśā of the dasāṁśa, this unhindered rājayoga started from Aquarius daśā in 1977 and continued through Pisces, Aries and Taurus. It was in Taurus that he relinquished the position in favour of Buddhadev Bhattacharya. Venus the lord of Taurus is in the 8th house of retirement. Jyoti Basu cited health reasons which is correctly indicated by lagneśa Venus in 8th house (Taurus Nārāyaṇa daśā).
In 1996 (Mercury daśā Moon antardaśā) Jyoti Basu seemed all set to be the consensus leader of the United Front for the post of Prime Minister of India. However, the CPI(M) Politburo decided not to participate in the government, a decision that Jyoti Basu later has correctly termed ‘a historic blunder’. Had his party stood by him then he would have been the Prime Minister of India instead of H.D. Deve Gowda from the Janata Dal and history would have taken an altogether different turn. As of 2010, Jyoti Basu holds the record for being the longest-serving Chief Minister in Indian political history which is a very big feat for a multi-party democracy like India having so many linguistic groups, castes and sections. The party continued to give him a place till about 2008 and his counsel was sought on many occasions.
On January 1, 2010, Basu was admitted to a Calcutta hospital after feeling unwell and started battling pneumonia. His health condition turned critical with signs of multiple organ “involvement” On the eighth day on Friday, AIIMS doctors at Delhi endorsed the line of treatment. A bronchoscopy conducted on him revealed that Aceneto Bactro bacteria was the primary cause of the infection. The doctors believed that with the identification of the particular bacteria, he will be treated with the appropriate antibiotics to counter the bacteria. However, we felt differently and have mentioned this in an email sent to the jyotiṣa lists. We hope he recovers but that is doubted.
The birth data of Jyoti Basu is: Jyoti Basu, July 8, 1914; 10:15:00 am > Cp navamsa with Moon [The Communist stamp]; Time Zone: 5:30:00 (East of GMT); Place: Calcutta, India (88 E 22′, 22 N 34′)
Two other birth times are given by astrologers –
•Birth time of 10.45 am = Pisces navāṁśa lagna with AK Ven in it
•Birth time of 10.50 am = Aries navāṁśa lagna with AK Ven in 12H
Our views are –
1.Saturn trines Āruḍha in Vṛṣabha
2.Sun trines the mṛtyu pada A8 in Sagittarius
3.Ketu daśā Guru antardaśā is on
4.Makara śūla daśā with Rudra yoga is on … hope they don’t try any operations
5.12 Jan 2010 is trayodaśī and Tuesday and Vṛṣabha Lagna is from about 2-4 pm
NOTE: Jyoti Basu passed close to this date
