To believe or not in astrology


Having witnessed several unpredictable adjournments in our court cases Subbu’s sudden fascination for astrological prediction in our case is understandable. He laboured very much on the planetry position on SEP 30 to say the unwelcome prediction : ‘Surya being in Kanya where Rahu is also positioned, how we wish that he is not positioned that way, the GOI side may force an adjournment or even ask for referring the issue of maintainability to a larger bench ‘. When I read the word Rahu an incident came to my mind. 

An anxious father whose son’s marriage was dodging called an astrologer home and asked him to predict his son’s marriage. The astrologer after nitty- gritty calculation said that Rahu in the boy’s horoscope is in the fourth house and so his marriage will be delayed. The boy having heard this barged in and said ‘ Radha my love is in the fourth house and yesterday I got married to her in the Registrar’s office.

Good time or bad time lies in the hands of our lawyers who should use all the court craft, waste no time on unnecessary details and whatever they argue should be such that it influences the mind of the learned judge to give an order in our favor.

May dharma prevail and truth triumph.
