quote what was reported in the Astrological Magazine about this prediction of mine and is mentioned in my
book Nehru Dynasty.
Her own death - “One night Raja Dinesh Singh had asked me some time in April or May 1984
and I had told him that the end of Indira was imminent. He asked me if I could tell the “time-frame”, a favourite
expression of his, I had to work hard, with Dr. R.K. Caroli, Mr. Anand Singh, a close friend and personal secretary
of Raja Dinesh Singh, waiting impatiently. The calculations were done by my friend Kumar Viveki. My specific answer
was “between 1st and 4th November 1984”, Indira was shot dead on 31st October 1984.”
addressing an astrological convocation what Raja Dinesh Singh said, was reported in Astrological-Magazine as “He
mentioned many of Mr. Rao’s predictions such as Mrs. Gandhi’s death etc.. which had proved correct".
correct.”(Astrological-Magazine, June 1990. P. 531)
briefly my basis of this prediction which
is remembered and quoted even today and which was reported in the Statesman. It was as follows:
(a) The New-Year Horoscope of 1984 had clearly shown a tragic change in the central government.
(b) Indira was passing through the Saturn-Rahu period. In Rahu-Saturn she had defied her father and married Feroze
Gandhi. In Jupiter-Saturn she had broken off all her relations with her husband and their were terrible scandals
heard about her which include the necklace she had got from the king of Saudi Arabia and the mink coat she had got
from Dharam Teja, a shipping
Saturn-Rahu she had antagonized the Sikhs by
hurting their religious sentiments. She had invited her doom. Her span of life could not be more than 68 years
by any calculation (see Saturn in the lagna).
Saturn in her lagna was aspecting her lagna-lord: as her 7th and the 8th lord, it had to prove
Moon, Saturn was again her 2nd lord in the 7th house. Saturn’s major period had to be a killer.
sub-period? Which sub-period, was the question to be
decided. Moon in her 7th house aspected by Jupiter could save her. The Sun in her 5th house again aspected by
Jupiter could save her. But Mars in her 2nd house could be a killer though being a yogakarka, it would not kill
her. Rahu like Saturn is a fully qualified killer according to Hindu-astrology. Then Rahu with Venus, a killer
for Cancer ascendant, in the 6th house was doubly bad.
Transits: In the ashtakvarga, as I wrote in the November 1984 issue of the
Astrological-Magazine (available in Delhi in the middle of October) I had already said that after 24 September,
1984 Saturn in Vishakha (20 degree in Libra) had entered that “crucial-area” again. Jupiter with Mars in Sagittarius was in the
12th house from her Moon in Capricorn. The transit of Rahu in Taurus was bad again as it was on her natal
Jupiter.” There was no saving element anywhere. (From my book
it through Chara dasha
dasha (1983 to 1992) Simha is eighth from her Karakamsha which
is Makara. It was Simha Tula and Kumbha period from 17 Oct 1984 to 19 Nov 1984. In Simha there is her DKN Sun.
Tula is aspected by DKN with Mars showing violence.
pratyantara is of Kumbha from where DKN falls in the seventh house. The sookshma is Mesha on 31 October
1984 aspected by DK and
dasha is also of Mesha.
I did this
calculation after her death to make sure that my method of computing Chara dasha was correct. It is a very time
taking process which had better be avoided and that time spent on spiritual pursuits. But to convince that
jyotisha is a pratyaksha shastra. it should be done once in a while.
trickiest part in astrology is to calculate the span of life and come to the exact period of death. It should
satisfy an astrologer to see the fatal period if he can see this period two to four years in advance. If the
actual death occurs two years after the period it should not be treated as an error but a near accurate
