‘Your sun is the king of the planets, positioned at 6 degrees covering you from the back giving you great strength and sure success’
‘Your name adds up to the number 6, add it by 3 and you get 2 which is number of a loser, so add that extra letter of ‘K Y or Z’ and you will be happy and all your tensions will erase away’
‘As you are ruled by Pluto, your future has been freezed by its chilling cold temperature, so wear that coloured zodiac stone and you will become warm and your future will be cheerfull’
well what you just read was jyotishshi, Jyot meaning LIGHT & ish meaning GOD. In other words Astrology, followed by billions around the world and religiously in my country.
A Public Interest Litigation has been filed in the Bombay High Court to throw some light ‘against astrologers, numerology, gemology and faith healers.’
The PIL has been filed by a Mumbai based NGO, Janhit Manch and seeks criminal action such persons and a ban on astrology and numerology shows that appear on most of the news channels and the forecasts that are published in almost every other newspaper with ridiculous predictions.
The practice and belief in astrology and related theories is devoid of any scientific process and experimentation , based on ludicrous theories of cosmic constellations, gravitation, divination , existing and non-existing solar objects as well as illusionary and imaginary placement of zodiac signs, states the petition.
The NGO has offered a Rs 5 lakh reward to any astrologer who can accurately predict the sensex at the end of each month of 2010 as well as the movement of inflation and rainfall in the cities of Mumbai, Pune, Ahmedabad, Delhi, Kolkata and Chennai.
The predictions are to be placed in a signed and sealed envelope, which will be opened only after December 31, 2010. If the predictions turn out to be true, the astrologer gets the promised Rs 5 lakh. Else, he must pay the same amount to the NGO.
The offer is still open without any entries and those interested can call Bhagwanji Raiyani on 9820403912.
P.S. a popular astrologist’s website claims : Astrology is a MIRROR to life. It is also a Guide Line. It is certainly Not 100% correct. No Dicipline is. But it helps within limits, just as psychology, economics, psychiatry does. Nothing is absolutely final and completely certain. But the chances of predictions coming right are good [70%] Also, character analysis of Astrology often helps. Astrology is Not a CRUTCH. It is to be used to Heal One’s Self.
