Why had I changed the lagna of
Chandrasekhar from Mithuna given by Hiralal Chaubey (see page 269 CHANDRASEKHAR ek lambe safar ki kahani VINDHYACHAL PRAKASHAN B 19- Gulmohar Park, Delhi
110049) to Mesha was the question I had to answers later and some of
them in the presence of Chandrasekhar.
Let me deal with it partly in a question-answer method.
You are the eldest child of your parents or the first child of your
Chandrasekhar I am not
the first child of my father but am the first of my mother. My father married
studied political science, sociology but part of your education got
Chandrasekhar I studied
both and later I could not complete my PhD because I got involved in
Between 1975 and 1977 did you yourself take a decision to leave the
Congress party or were expelled ?
I gave my prediction to him thus:
Astrologically you could not have risen to the high post of the prime minister in 1989 though, it was said
that Biju Patnaik had hatched a conspiracy to propose the name of Devi Lal, the senior most among you
In turn, as pre-planned, Devi Lal stood
down and proposed the name of V.P.Singh. But now with planetary position having changed, V.P.Singh cannot stay
in power inspite of the mass hysteria he has created for himself through the Mandal
Chandrasekhar had looked at me with poker face without showing whether he believed me or not.
There ended the meeting.
Discussion with others was on the following lines.
A person who started his career like an intrepid socialist failed to rise higher because
Indira Gandhi did everything to ruin his career. This is well explained by the presence of the tenth lord in
the eighth house and the eighth lord aspecting the tenth house.
It was the period of Saturn Mars that he suffered the worst disaster of his political career.
Here Mars in the eighth house of dashamansha confirms the reading available from the birth
It started in the period of Tula-Kanya in Chara dasha with Amk in the third house and AK in
the sixth and two malefics in the tenth house.
Whole of his Jupiter period he was the rising star which is clear from Jupiter in the eleventh
house also in the dashamansha.
In the Saturn period, he felt let down, first by Jaya Prakash Narayan which grudge he did
express many years after the death of that great leader.
Then came the Indira Gandhi’s blow to him and his career.
Now, it was the period of Mercury, debilitated but the third and sixth lord. It falls under
the exception of Parashara.
The antardasha of Moon, the fourth lord of the lagna, vargottama and in the tenth house
of the dashamansha was the right period for him to become the prime minister. It was now or never for
Being in the eighth house from Mercury, Moon made him the “accidental” prime minister of India
when the government of V.P. Singh was brought down by BJP and the famous ratha yatra of Lal Krishna
Both Jupiter and Saturn were in strong houses in the sarvastaka houses.
I had series of arguments like this including the verification of his personal and family life
which I will not disclose here.
He did become the prime minister in November 1990 and it was a rather ludicrous situation,
depending on the mercy of Rajiv Gandhi to whose disgrace it will be always said that on flimsiest ground he
withdrew the support of his party to the government of Chandrasekhar in which he had less than sixty men of
his own !
But in that small period, he did nothing that could be called creditable. The nation was
financially bankrupt and he was a prime minister whose crutch on which his government depended was
monstrously too huge.
Was India a democracy or a joke so many of us wondered.
But vargottama Sun and Moon the fourth and fifth lords of his horoscope had to give him at
least once what he deserved very richly during the Indira era as a Congress man and as a possible successor
of Indira Gandhi.
History is a cruel judge. A man who might have been a great prime minister of India, had to
struggle all his life to find his place in Indian politics in the Indira era. He will unfortunately get
bracketed with V.P. Singh, an ugly aberration in Indian politics, Deve Gowda who as though had won a lottery
ticket to become the prime minister or later, I.K. Gujaral who thought that a prime minister should always be
touring foreign countries and never stay in India.
And now in the dasha of Venus, the
maraka for Mesha, Chandrasekhar breathed his last. His death removes the last of a giant socialist who lived
to see his political wings flutter in the void of Indira Gandhi’s opportunistic
But I remember him as a dignified, mature and intelligent politician who was the leader of

My Addition to the above Article:
addition I am making now is to
show his death through the method I am discussing consistently. I am also showing why I do not make extra addition
for exalted planets and extra deduction for debilitated planets.
He died in July 2007 in Vrisha which is aspected by Moon Darakaraka which is the dual use of DK as researched by me
and the antardasha of Karka which is sixth from the
Atmakaraka Jupiter in Kumbha. The pratyantara dasha was of Mesha from where Dar-karaka is in the seventh and is
aspected by AK. Mesha is also aspected by AK.
In Vimshottari it was Venus-Venus-Moon marakas in many ways.
