    a) Agni is fire

    * tendency to destroy/burn things (destruction) - this can be used to

    say that it destroys enemies/good things as well depending on context

    - can be extrapolated to digestive ability as well

    * fire is afraid of none - this can indicate

    leadership/courage/kingliness<wbr>/bravery/enterprising nature


    Agni is predominant in Sun and Mars and that explains their nature.


    Sun adds satwik colour to fire while Mars adds tamaasik colour - Sun

    may forgive a sinner if he made the mistake unknowingly while Mars may

    punish a virtous person as well.

    This fiery nature makes Sun king and Mars commander-in-chief of Army -

    and of course males :)


    b) Jala is watery

    * watery means intuitive - person is imaginative and can think in

    different ways of solving a problem/approaching solutions to problems

    * We can expect watery to imply creativity as well


    This watery element makes Venus and Moon what they are. Creativity is

    probably the forte of females and both these planets are female :)


    Fickle mindedness for Moon happens due to his waxing/waning nature and

    that is why Venus is saved of this


    c) Vaayu is airy

    * He will wander without aim - whiling away time maybe :)

    * Indicates free spirit -


    No wonder Saturn who is a servant has vaayu predominant - not using

    time for constructive purposes.


    d) Mixed or Ethery Nature

    Ether is present everywhere and is a mixture of a), b) and c).

    This can indicate wisdom, knowledge


    Jupiter the minister has these qualities

    Recently the 'Taj Mahal' was voted as one of the 'Seven Wonders of the World'.I have personally visited the 'Taj' thrice and can confidently say that it is one of the most beautiful man made structures on Earth.

    The Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan commissioned it as a mausoleum for his favourite wife, Mumtaz Mahal. Construction began in 1632 and was completed in approximately 1648. A team of designers and craftsmen were responsible for the design, with Ustad Ahmad Lahauri being the principal designer.The grave of Shah Jahan was added to it later. The queen’s real name was Arjumand Banu. In the tradition of the Mughals, important ladies of the royal family were given another name at their marriage or at some other significant event in their lives, and that new name was commonly used by the public. Shah Jahan's real name was Shahab-ud-din, and he was known as Prince Khurram before ascending to the throne in 1628.Taj Mahal was constructed over a period of twenty-two years, employing twenty thousand workers. It was completed in 1648 at a cost of 32 Million Rupees.


    The Taj Mahal is generally considered the finest example of Mughal architecture, a style that combines elements of Persian, Turkish, Indian, and Islamic architectural styles. While the white domed marble mausoleum is the most familiar part of the monument, the Taj Mahal is actually an integrated complex of structures with a beautiful persian garden besides the river Yamuna.



    The Nadi Astrologer is generally busy and one has to take an appointment with him a month before approximately When you go there on the appointed day he checks his dairy and take the three impressions of the right thumb for males and the left thumb for females on a paper giving serial order number and ask you to wait till he calls you. Then he goes inside his library room where the palm leaves are kept which is not accessible to others. After an hour or so, sometimes quicker, he comes back with an old palm leaf bundle called index leaves. After making himself comfortable he carefully unwinds the long string which keeps the bundle in tact. He tells you to answer yes or no to his questions. With great devotion he takes the first palm leaf and starts reading on one side. The reading style is of funny accent in a poetic way, not understandable to even Tamilians. After reading one or two lines or even less sometimes he asks you some questions and you have to answer yes or no only. If you say 'No' he proceeds to the other side of leaf or next leaf and continues his questions. The questions are generally one or two at a time , such as whether our name is after some God /Goddess contains 3 or 4 or so letters or so, starts ends with a particular letter in a Varga (series) of the Hindu alphabets, Similarly about the names of parents and wife/husband whether anyone of them or both are alive or dead, number of elder and younger brothers and sisters, number of children number of uncles, type of profession, whether you are born in rainy season /summer etc. whether you are born in moveable /fixed/dual Moon and lagna rasis, whether you are born in a particular Moon Birth star whether you are born in a particular day in a particular year whether your age is so and so etc. He says that h e does not know what questions to ask unless he scans the leaves and that is why they generally insist the concerned person or a person who knows every detail about the persons consulted, should be present to answer the questions correctly, otherwise they say the readings won't go wrong. They do no bother much of you cannot answer questions about birth date month age, Moon rasi and star, lagna and they seem to bother more about matching of your name names of parents and wife/husband. If he gets 'No' answers to all the leaves of the first bundle which he goes back into his library and brings another bundle. This process continues for an hour or so generally covering generally up to bundles each consisting about 50 leaves or sometimes quickly even in the first bundle till he and your are satisfied and the answers to all the questions in a particular leaf are 'yes' only Concerning names, parents, wife /husband, co-borns profession etc.


    Then he goes inside and bring another particular bundle and reads in poetic style your actual birth date month land year the astrological birth chart with position of planets sometimes with lagna also exact names of yourself, parents, wife/ husband, co-born, education, profession and gist of future predictions in a broad way and this is called General Kandam (chapter) of first bhava. You can verify the chart given if you know your birth chart he writes the concerned verses from the leaf in a note book . Then he records the same in an audio tape with translation into common understandable Tamil or some other languages with the help of a translator if necessary . He generally charges a minimum of 400 rupees upto this General Kandam Then he asks you whether you want to more details about any particular aspect of your life such as marriage, profession, etc and if so he picks up corresponding bundle and charges a similar amount extra for each aspect which he calls it a separate kandam or chapter. Some chapters give details about previous birth, remedial measures etc. At the end he hands over the note book and audio tape to you with devotion and takes money generally at the place where the photos of Gods /Goddess are there.




    The details covered in each Kandam generally are as follows:-


    Kandam 1- To be found through thumb impression (gents right, ladies left or sometimes by horoscope of the concerned person or palm, will contain name

    parents and wife/husband's names brothers, sisters, maternal uncles, children,

    profession and general list of future predictions for all the 12 houses.


    {general kandam }Then each kandam is ur choice on which area of life u wanted to concentrate in reading ,so read and identify each chpater and u can demand reading it .


    Kandam 2 - Money family speech, eyes, education.


    Kandam 3 - Brothers and Sisters


    Kandm 4 Mother ,House, Lands, Vehicles, Pleasures


    Kandam 5 - Children Birth of children, reasons for not having children.


    Kandam 6- Enemies, Diseases, Debts, cases in court.


    Kandam 7 - Marriage., Married life


    Kandam8 - Danger to life, longevity, period of death.


    Kandam9 - Father, Wealth, luck, Temple devotion to God ,Preaching from Holyman


    Kandam 10 - Business, Job, Profession


    Kandam 11 -Gain , Second Marriage.


    Kandam12.-Expenditure , Foreign visit, salvation,next birth.


    Kandam13- Shanthi Kandam - Last Birth, Sins committed, remedial measures


    Kandam 14 - Deekshakandam- Mantra Japam and wearing of talisman (Raksha)


    Kandam 15 - Avushathakandam Medicines for long standing diseases.


    Kandam 16- Dasa Bhuktikandam prediction for the present major and subperiod of the planet.


    Kandam 17- Predictions about social service and political life


    Kandam 18- Predictions about attainment of spiritual wisdom through yoga, path to attain salvation, divine advice, appearance of the Deity to one's spiritual eye and divine help.



    In addition to these, there is also a special chapter for 'Prasna' where any query is answered.


    Generally Remedial measures are like visiting particular temple, feeding the

    poor etc, corresponding to sins the remedial measures re suggested. Suggestion of giving alms to the Nadi reader.




    There is some other section known as mantra nadis ( or tantra nadis ) there the question will b answered through leafs on invoking mantras and it entirely depends on the spiritual power of reader >And in that you don't need to ask read the chapters and your question along with your doubts and its answers will generally appear on leaf and reader will pass the information to you .

  4. This is a poem I had composed afew years back for which I had received appreciation letter from the then President of India, Mr.A.P.J.Abdul Kalaam...








    My Love , My India

    In the beginning of human civilisation

    When there were no nation

    There existed a holy land

    There existed my motherland.

    When civilisations were few

    And urbanisation was new

    There was Harappa and Mohen-jo-Daro

    Lothal, Kalibangan and Chanho-Daro.


    This was the land of Sanskrit

    of Pali, of Prakrit

    This was the land of Gautama Buddha

    of Chandragupta of Magadha,

    This was the land of Ashoka,

    of Mahavir and Kanishka;

    This was the land of great souls

    With great minds and greater goals.


    This was the land of Milk and Honey,

    of Gold, Silver and Money;

    This was the land of age-old culture,

    Of art, history and architecture.

    This was the land of glory and pride

    For which great heroes had died,

    This was the land of teachings

    Of knowledge and preachings.


    Then came the foreign invaders,

    Then came the ruthless raiders,

    Who came here as merchants to sell

    Who came here as butchers to kill.

    Some came from Asia,

    From Afganistan, From Persia;

    Some came from Europe,

    With some ambition, some hope.


    People were subjected to cruelty

    To torture and brutality,

    People were made to weep

    And their sorrows ran deep.

    People looked on with helplessness and pity

    As this nation was reduced to poverty,

    And there was a time

    When patriotism was a crime.


    Then there came a 'Messiah'

    A noble son of 'Mother India'

    A simple man clad in Khadi

    And named 'Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi'.

    He spread all around India

    The concept of 'Quit India'

    And suddenly with patriotic cries

    Rose the daring 'Satyagrahis'.


    People began to revolt

    People made their own salt

    People began to fight

    For a cause, just and right.

    The foreigners were forced to quit

    Slow and steady, bit by bit;

    And with the beats of the drum

    One day India got freedom.


    And today there is faith and aspiration,

    That through people's perspiration,

    There shall be a new tommorrow

    When there will be no sorrow;

    When every Indian will one day

    With pride and honour say,

    My India, I Love You

    I Love You, I Love You.
