ETERNAL INDIA 29 - SUPPRESSION OF BIRTH
2010, 11:44 AM
The debate among astrologers about the correct birth data or the suppression of the correct birth details of
celebrities and historical figures will be unending. Let me quote what I wrote in the preface to LEARN SUCCESSFUL
PREDICTIVE TECHNIQUES OF HINDU ASTROLOGY.
Evidence — We in India have three historical instances of
famous men being discussed in astrological articles, including what they call their ‘research’. The late D.P.
Misra, a well-known politician of Madhya Pradesh, wrote in his book, "Living an Era", that India’s super Bismark, Sardar Vallabh Patel,
did not know his birth day, year and time. When asked by astrologers, he decided, being an Iron Man, known for
decisiveness, that he was born on October 30, of some year in the nineteenth century and at a particular time.
Using that data, astrologers have discussed his horoscope too often and too nauseatingly.
interesting case is that of the former Indian President, Dr.S.Radhakrishnan, who according to a biography
written by his son, S. Gopal, was born on a different day of September (in the 4th week of the month, perhaps)
one year before the year used by astrologers and, the
Government of India celebrates the Teacher’s Day on September 5 every year. India's astrological journals
and books contain the horoscope of Dr. Radhakrishnan explaining Saraswati Yoga. But his own son has called his father an illegitimate child with an
entirely different date and year of birth.
amusing is the gimmick of India celebrating the birth anniversary of the former Indian Prime Minister, Lal
Bahadur Shastri, on October 2 every year when according to his well-known family horoscope it should be 9

used the time given to me by some Bengali friends which gives me 4-42-10 p.m. giving me Simha Lagna, though
there is a difference of 48 minutes shown by N. C. Lahiri, who, as he had once told me, that he not being an
astrologer, could never correct a horoscope.
Lagna and Dogma: Prabhupad
There is in this book a long portrait of Prabhupad A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami
which took considerable scrutiny because while the famous and distinguished astrologer, Gopesh Kumar Ojha, gave
him Makar lagna, an American astrologer insisted that it had to be Dhanu lagna, giving not any astrological
logic but, on the basis of a pure dogma. It is pernicious not to follow astrological basics. First of all, there
must be sound approach through the verification of life events. See for instance the results attributed to
Jupiter in the 8th house.
"Gurur-mrityago tasya VaikunthaGatham"
that after death, those who have Jupiter in the 8th house, go to the highest world.
blindfolded the American astrologer was a prejudice. He saw concentration of five planets in the 8th house of
Rajneesh (Osho) and concluded, not on the basis of any astrological logic, "the person is walking on the path to
hell" . This is not astrology but dogma, not a scientific approach and is not in harmony with the Mahaprabhu’s
spirit (Taror-api-sahishnu more tolerant than the
Very early in my astrological career I
came across a horoscope of Lal Bahadur Shastri with Moon in Kanya and Dhanu lagna with the date of birth not
given by as many as three famous and established astrologers of India, Sri Suryanarain Vyas, Sri Hardeo Trivedi
I cast the
horoscope and found that the date of birth was October 9 not 2nd on which his birthday is celebrated. I asked
Dr.Raman and also Hardeoji about it and they said that out of their respect for Shastriji they decided not to
give the date of birth but made successful prediction about his short term as prime minister and tragic
Then in course of
time an aunt of my younger brother’s wife married someone in the family of Lal Bahadur Shastri and I got the
Memorial Volume in which the family horoscope given was the same as used by the three astrologers referred to above
with Dhanu lagna and Moon in Kanya.
In early nineties of the last century a television anchor from Bombay who specialized in sports used to meet me in
Delhi and promised that he would get the birth details of both Tendulkar and Kambli. In his next visit he told me
that he would not be able to get it as the families of both Tendulkar and Kambli were advised not to give their
birth details to anyone. This may have led to the creation of 24 April as the birthday of Sachin
Then when I
got the birth details from Karveji and his daughter Pinky, I gave it to Sri Manoj Pathak who has produced an
article which is there displayed on the website.
I told many
that the birth details of Virendra Sehwag were different in earlier year with his month of birth shown as May or
April not 20 October of 1978. But then an article in an issue of the Journal of Astrology, later in a book, made
it difficult for the wrong date to continue since it was well known that I had got the details from the sister
in law of the elder sister of Virendra Sehwag. She is high ranking officer in the Indian railways and knows
astrology. Suppression of correct birth details was not possible in this case. There has been no such compulsion
in the case of Tendulkar.
have always quarreled without realizing that they are fooled by politicians and celebrities. They keep burning
their fingers and never learn any lesson. But the age old Hindu or even Moghul emperor’s tradition of giving
wrong birth data will continue for some reasons.
