Foray Into Politics: The Cesspool
“In 1984, Bachchan took a break from acting and briefly entered politics in support of long-time family friend, Rajiv Gandhi. He contested Allahabad's seat of 8th Lok Sabha against H. N. Bahuguna, former Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh and won by the one of the highest victory margins in general election  history (68.2% of the vote).His political career, however, was short-lived: he resigned after three years, calling politics a cesspool.”     

Simha Dhanu (July 1983 to June 1984) and Simha Makara upto May 1985 Amitabh joined politics in this period and Makara being a rashi, generally, of change ; it was from the film world to what he called the cesspool of politics, an unpleasant change in his life. It must have been so as from Makara, there is GK in the tenth house. From Makara, the ninth house is excellent having Atmakaraka, Amatyakaraka and Putrakaraka, Venus. 

Dhanu is the rashi of rise and fall and accidents etc. See the tenth house with AK and Amk and PK and BK. He won his elections against H.N. Bahuguna which was a big achievement and entered the Indian parliament and got disgusted with politics soon. 

He won his elections in Makara from where the planet of democracy, Saturn, aspects the tenth house. 

Simha Mesha (March 1987 to Feb 1988) He got disgusted with politics and with AK and AmK in the sixth house of struggle decided finally to leave politics which annoyed his childhood friend Rajiv Gandhi, the Indian prime minister particularly after he described politics as “cesspool”.  Notice, BK also in the sixth house representing his brother Ajitabh and the controversy of Bofors in which Ajitabh too was mentioned. 

I will trace four more events through Chara Dasha. 

Amitabh’s Kanya dasha was from 1991 to 2003. Note here both BK Mars and Sun are placed proving it to be bad for his famous father Harivansrai Bachchan whom our generation admired much more than Amitabh. Sun and BK here eliminates the need for a separate karaka for father. 

Harivansh Bachchan died on 18 Jan 2003. It was Kanya Kanya Makar both BK and Sun are here and DK in the seventh house.

Also note The Tula dasha started from 2003 and will last upto 2014.  

If a karaka that is afflicted is aspected by Gnathikaraka also it leads to early departure of such person from one’s life, in various ways generally, not always. In his case, Amitabh’s Matrikaraka Saturn receives the benefic aspect of Jupiter, though aspected by GK. There is Moon here, representing mother and eighth from here in Vrisha is Saturn, the Matrikaraka. The end of his mother Smt.Teji Bachchan who had done Vishnusahastranama with me many times in my house, was becoming visible. 

Smt.Teji Bachchan died on 21 Dec 2007 in Tula Meena Tula. DK Jupiter aspects MK Saturn in the eighth house from Tula. 

World recognition 
“In 1999, Bachchan was voted the Greatest Star of stage or screen of the Millennium by BBC online poll where he defeated many Hollywood legends. In 2001, he was honoured with the Actor of the Century award at the Alexandria International Film Festival in Egypt in recognition of his contribution to the world of cinema.” (from the internet). 

It was the period Kanya mahadasha with AK and AmK here aspecting the tenth house and antardasha of Mithuna from where the tenth house is aspected by AK and Amk. This period ended in 2001 with Kanya-Kanya where both AK and AmK and PK forming many Jaimini rajayogas are present. 

Marriage of his son 
Aishwarya Abhishek wedding photos 27 Apr 2007 ... (from the internet).  It was Tula mahadasha and Kumbha antardasha which is the lagna of the Saptamsha and the pratyantardasha of Makara where DK Jupiter is placed in the Saptamsha. 

It is how Chara Dasha as researched by me and used both in the birth horoscope and relevant varga charts are to be used.
