Karma’s and its play
Pictured above – With Param Pujya Swamiji
I have witnessed the invisible hand of God, whenever I am going through the tough times in my life. But I had never seen God and had a lot of questions about life or you may also call it a mid-life-crisis !
The toughest phase of my life were the years 2010–11. My mind was confused and I had left my high paying government job overseas and went to Rishikesh in search of answers to some difficult questions of my life and its purpose.
I had seen a lot of money and the more money I saw the more it depressed me, as I was in cohorts with greedy people, wanting nothing more than just making and hoarding a lot of dollars and blinded and controlled by it.
On reaching Rishikesh, I was initially disillusioned as I saw that a lot of the so called yoga shops, where all that mattered was money.
The good thing was that the local Uttarakhandi people were very nice and I made some friends who owned a hotel, where I stayed. But this was not why I had come to Rishikesh.

I had come to do some sewa or work for free or do karma yoga as penance for my materialistic and greedy decades spent overseas, which had hurt my soul.
At the hotel where I was staying, I also volunteered to wash the cars of all the guests there. Everyday morning for around a month, I used to come out of my room and wash the cars that were parked outside. Then after breakfast I used to roam around Rishikesh town and do some yoga and meditation on the side of the holy Ganges. Then I used to come back and have dinner and sleep. I was living on 2 meals a day again as a self imposed pennance.

One evening while wandering, I entered into an ashram, and as was my practice asked the monks (sanyasi) if there was any sewa that I could do.
But this evening a very aged monk or sanyasi told me in a voice that sounded so kind and compassionate that I should first attend a three month Yoga – Vedanta course at their ashram and only then could I do sewa.
The next day I returned to meet the registrar to see if I could enroll in a three month residential Yoga Vedanta course, which was offered absolutely free of cost. What raised my spirits enormously was that swamiji or the senior monk, who was the registrar told me that they do not talk about money, this when I had serious doubts about how in this day and age could boarding, lodging, excellent satvic food, books and teaching be all free of cost.

I could see only love and affection in swamiji’s gentle eyes and took the necessary forms for filled them up along with a medical certificate and submitted it, giving the contact address of the hotel where I was staying.
After a week I got a letter informing me that I had been accepted into the course which was to begin in the next 10 days.
Hence began my transformation for which I had subconsciously waited my whole adult life.
In the my batch there were 66 men from all over India and over the 3 months we learned about Yoga, Vedanta, Religion, Philosophy, Meditation, Scriptures, via classroom cum practical sessions.
By the end of the course only about 40 of us passed; some were kicked out mid-way, while some ran away scared of the strict monastic life – thinking it would be a free vacation.

This was toughest and most rewarding karmic gift that I got, which I had not even anticipated in my wildest dreams and it came after I subjected myself to severe penance for my greed.
Ever since there has been a dramatic change in me by just sitting at the feet of the learned and realized souls and I also found my guru and guide for this birth and ever since my life has turned for the better. I am self disciplined, happy and cheerful. Such were the strong and positive vibrations.
At the end of the course, I told swamiji that I wanted to stay and serve him – he politely but firmly told me to return back home and fulfill my worldly duties and then come back and live at the ashram with my wife.
My spiritual training has also given me a new perspective about astrology and palmistry and about life.

Shaheed (Martyr) Bhagat Singh has been an inspiring force for Indians ever since his martyrdom at a very young age.
Therefore it would be an honor for me to do a chart analysis of Shaheed-E- Azam Bhagat Singh ji.Bhagat Singh became the symbol of youth’s awakening in India and was always revered for his courage and love towards his country. He was also given the status of ‘Shaheed-e-Azam’ or shaheed by the people of India for his ultimate sacrifice.
There are discrepancies in the accuracy of his birth details which I would first address and then study his chart. The Government of India celebrated his 112th birth anniversary on 28th September 2019 and hence i am going as per the official Government of India date. This makes his birthday as September 28th, 1907. There is no discrepancy in his place of birth which is Banga (now in Faisalabad, Punjab Province, Pakistan)
Hence his birth details are (birth time has been determined by me)

This question was asked by me this AM when i got the horrific news of our beloved leader Madam Sushma Swaraj’s sudden passing away by a cardiac arrest in New Delhi.
It was widely reported in the media hat she had been keeping unwell for some time now but this news came as a shock to me and once again reinforced the uncertainty of life and why we all must make use of each and every breath that God has given us.
Sushsma ji was active till the end, with her tweeting about the passage of the historic Article 370 abolishment bill yesterday evening at around 1930 hours and then it was reported that at 2100 hours she passed away.
What a wonderfully lived life till her last breath.
Madam has touched the life of many ordinary Indians when she was India’s external affairs minister in NDA 1 under the able leadership of our Beloved PM Shri Narendra Modi.
This is my way of paying tribute to late Smt. Sushma Swaraj ji.

Ranbir Rishi Kapoor or (RR Kapoor) needs no introduction and below i have done an analysis of his chart by tweaking his time of birth as per details available in the public domain about his life.
As is evident he is really born with a silver spoon in his mouth.

Rajni Sir is one of the best example of a superstar who is self made and has gone through a lot of struggles in his life that we do not know about. He is very humble and down to earth person and also very fine human being.
There were different birth times of Rajini Sir floating around the net and i do not agree that those reflect his life and hence are accurate.
In reality the birth details of any celebrity can never be confirmed till they themselves give it to you and that is in most cases impossible.
Now let me take a look at his chart.

This shows what is required for an ordinary small town Punjabi ‘kudi’ from Ludhiana to become a superstar in Mumbai.
Tapsee Pannu has done well, from being an unknown person to having fame at such a young age is indeed a dream come true. But she is looking for deeper meaning and would want to give it back by way of meaningful cinema and charity for the underprivileged. That is our Punjabi kudi Tapsee!
How has she done it ?
Though her birth details are available online but, to me, they do not seem to be accurate. Hence, I would, by an iterative process, determine her astrologically accurate birth details and discuss her chart here.
This process is followed when the exact TOB (time of birth) of a celebrity — or for that matter anyone — is not known. You draw multiple charts for him/her for the birth day and year and then see which one suits him he best, based on the information available in the public domain about the person.
For any other individual, this information has to be either supplied by him or his family. Once you get to an approximate time that suits the person (if you have his palm photo it only helps) it is fine-tuned to determine a TOB to a point where astrologically or prediction-wise it wouldn’t make a difference. Or the predictions would fit his profile till that point in his/her life and then you can predict his/her future too.
So after studying 6 iterations of charts of the day of her birth, I now have determined his astrological birth time as below.
