Baba Ramdev eviction - Govt did not sense the mood of the nation.

The shabby way the Government has stalled Baba Ramdev's fast, with the foul mouthed Digvijay Singh taking center stage is a bad strategy that could cost the Congress dear. The Congress led Government does not seem to understand  the mood of the Nation which can be defined in simple terms as "People versus Politicians."  The rise of Anna Hazare or a Baba Ramdev taking up cudgels against the government shows only 2 things -
(1) there is no political leader in the country to reflect the thoughts and mood of the people and
(2) the people are clearly angry with the way the Government is running for the corrupt, by the corrupt and to shield the corrupt.
The Government and Congress do not seem to understand that people as a nation have matured as thinking people, thanks to the huge proportion of youth forming the populace who can not stand the 3 C, caste, corruption and communal politics which is what the Congress stands for - thereby making Congress the 4th C making it fit to be thrown out.


There is no way for the people to show their distrust in the Congress and its governance  other than backing up any person who comes forward to provide a platform to express people's disenchantment with the establishment. The Government may be thinking that it has 'successfully' stopped Baba Ramdev today, but tomorrow some one else will come up because such is the frustration running across the country.
The centre of the storm is the Congress party which is not showing any sign of improvement in its commitment to check corruption.
The foremost examples are its truck with the DMK and reluctance to reveal black money holders. With the Congress not understanding the mood of the Nation which wants a clean and honest governance, we are likely to see more and more agitations cropping up in the coming months.
The only message from the people is - : "Behave well or else leave".

HAM-HANDED HANDLING OF BABA RAMDEV'S MOVEMENT

The ham-handed handling of Baba Ramdev's movement against foreign bank accounts of Indian nationals by the Government of Prime Minister Manmohan Singh does not speak well either of the Government headed by him or of the Congress (I) headed by Mrs.Sonia Gandhi or of the senior bureaucracy advising the PM.


2. Public anger against the perceived lack of action by the Government to detect and proceed legally against the holders of illegal accounts abroad had been building up at least for a year, if not longer. This anger was more faithfully and accurately reflected in the NET than in the print and electronic media.


3.While the electronic media played a commendable role in reflecting public anger over the foot-dragging by the Government in taking action on charges of corruption against certain political leaders, it did not take serious note of the NET anger over Government's perceived inaction against illegal accounts held abroad by Indian nationals.


4.Repeated examples of cover-up by the Government in the Bofors case where one had useful leads of some illegal accounts held abroad by some of the dramatis personae in the Bofors scandal created strong suspicions in the minds of many that there must be other such instances of cover-up by the Government to prevent the truth from being found out in respect of foreign accounts.

The principles of yoga demand right living. A camp organized for yoga, according to the government of today, cannot be used for agitations or protests. What our learned politicians fail to understand is that yoga itself is a statement against all that is out of balance in the system, both internally in our bodies and minds, and externally as a reflection of this internal reality. What we see as society, social structure, going all the way up to governance and the principles of governance are but manifestations of innumerable intent nurtured in each individual. http://goo.gl/f5Hmf

The start up time of the fast (7 am yesterday) was not good. The lagna was Gemini, a common sign and the lagna lord was in the 12th while the retro Saturn was aspecting the lagna.
saturn in the 4th and rahu in the 7th do not ensure smooth running of the agitation. However the 10th lord (Jup) signifying the fruit of the agitation is in the 11th with 11th and 5th lord. The fruits of the agitation will be achieved in due course. The agitation will not die out but will keep coming up.

I don't have Babaji's horoscope. I will look out for it and say.

For an agitation of this kind we have to see other horoscopes such as Indian horoscope, the horoscopes of political parties and politicians. Indian horoscope shows times of assertion of people's views and a blow to corrupt elements.Some headway will be made in black money issue before the year end. The much hyped rahul Gandhi will go on the decline from June 28th,2011 onwards. His mother's control and influence will decline from next may onwards.If her birth details as available on the internet are right, she will be in political wilderness from May 2012 onwards when her Ketu Mahadasa begins. MMS will not complete the term as PM. There is a chance for the BJP to gain importance which will be manifest from May 2012 onwards. BJP's god times begin after May 2012.

The second half of 2012 will see some tumultuous times in the home front with agitations and fall of important political personalities.
This is the preliminary assessment from Indian horoscope.

What is more annoying is the calumnious reporting of this mainstream english media. Journos like barkhagate dutt, rajdeep, sagarika & co. are distorting the facts when they report. They are spoiling the fourth estate.

Dear Madam.,

hope your prediction go true.

one could sense :

- procrastination tactics towards corruption.
- fear of anything related to our Indian culture be it Yoga/ Ayurveda / sanskrit/ traditional music, even there was a PIL for ban of astrology.
- we cannot expect more from foreigner & half foreigners who love to enjoy only power & wealth of our country.

Why is that any person clad in saffron colour gets ridiculed or talked in condescending tones by even twentysomething anchors? Do they really know this country and its past?

The biggest important factor is retrograde Saturn, till 16/06/2011. I think Congress as a party too was formed sometime in the first week of December. Though as per Westerners we don't give much importance to Sun sign (Dec21 to Jan 20 comes under Capricorn zodiac sign) the importance of a retrograde Saturn is there for all to see. Planets, as they say become powerful while in retrograde. Also the fact that Bharata Varsha is seen as a Capricorn country, but as far as Independent India is concerned I've seen astrologers take 15/08/1947. But more than anything I like to see the Mahadasha effects here. As of now we are still in Rahu Mahadasha, which ensures lot of activities happen but not much result is achieved. If I'm right Rahu Mahadasha is on till 2014, with Rahu Mahadasha - Surya Anthardasha currently running. Not sure to what extent whatever I've said is right but from whatever I could infer things seem to be as I've mentioned. Hari Om.

Saffron signifies INTEGRITY and this was the meaning adopted by Indian National Congress when our National Flag was designed and made part of Republic of India. By the which national symbols have Congress respected. The National Animal - Tiger is on the verge of extinct, our national game - hockey is in doldrums, the national flower - Lotus has got politicized (BJP's symbol as well, which is why Congress hate it), National bird - Peacock, well it seems to be good substitute to Chicken meat, where ever peacocks are available. Vande Mataram our national song stands discredited as it is used by RSS. The few things left is our National emblem, the national anthem, which too is seeing lot of controversy for no one seems to be sure who Sri Rabindranath Tagore is addressing when he used the words "Adhi Nayaka Jaya Hai" (Wikipedia says it was used to sing in praise of King George V, but some want to see it as praise to Lord Rama who ruled Bharata Varsha. End of it, what India needs is a total rework of whatever was formulated 63/60 years ago.

SONIA HOROSCOPE SHOWS SHE HAS BHUDAN DASA AND SANI BHUKTI.BHUDAN IN 5TH SIGN FROM LAGNA WOULD SIMPLY GIVES THE RESULTS OF SUN, THE 2ND HOUSE MARAKA. SIMILARLY THE BHUKTI LORD SANI,THE 7TH AND 8TH HOUSE LORD MARAKA WOULD MAKE IT DOUBLE CONFIRMED.BHUDAN BEING THE LORD OF 3RD AND 12TH,THE LOSS AND SATURN BEING 7TH AND 8TH (LATER DENOTES PERMANENT LOSS).SO THIS DASA BHUKTI WILL MAKE A PERMANENT LOSS IN 5TH HOUSE THE SIGN OF PUTRA KARAGA. KETU DASA STARTING IN JULY 2012 WILL MAKE MORE TOWARDS TROUBLES AND GNANA,MORE SPIRITUAL INCLINED WITH LESS INTEREST IN POLITICS. KETU WILL GIVE THE RESULTS OF 2RD SUN, 3RD AND 12TH MERCURY. KETU IN MERCURY STAR FOR HER.SO THERE WILL BE A MAJOR EVENT IN EARLY 2012
