Bejan Daruwalla, the face of astrology in India, has hit the bull's eye on countless occasions, the latest being the prediction of the elimination of the face of global terrorism, Osama bin Laden, in a super-secretive operation ordered by US President Barack Obama, and carried out with surgical precision by the elite US Navy Seals corps on Pakistan's soil, less than a 100 kms from its capital Islamabad on Sunday night.
In his book 'Your Complete Forecast 2011 Horoscopes', the celebrated astrologer had written, 'Jupiter will be in Aries from January 23, 2011 to June 4, 2011. Another lucky period for Obama! Obama will deliver the goods and that is the bottom-line.'
And sure enough, as Obama had promised before being elected President, he got the perpetrator of the dramatic 9/11 terrorist attacks on the New York Trade Centre twin towers and the Pentagon buildings by crashing air planes into them, bringing to an end the sordid episode of the biggest global manhunt ever, which was launched soon after the attacks nearly a decade ago in November 2001.
Daruwalla, a sworn devotee of Lord Ganesha, has also written in his best-selling book that 'Obama is a man of destiny. He was born on August 4, 1961.' As per the same quote, the number 4 has played a pivotal or important part in the history of America:
- The declaration of independence of America was on July 4.
- Thomas Jefferson (author of the Declaration of Independence) died on July 4.
- President James Munroe (famous for the Munroe doctrine) died on July 4.
Bejan ji continues here and writes, 'In other words, America has a strong link with the number 4. The year 2011, by addition comes to the number 4. Therefore, America and Obama will be the prime movers and shakers of the whole world.'
How true! However, with the death of Bin Laden, one can only hope that terrorism will stop shaking the world any more.
Bejan Daruwalla had also predicted in the above-mentioned book that India and US will grow closer to each other. 'I reiterate,' the famed astrologer wrote, 'that in the long run Obama will draw closer to India. My reasons are: a) Obama is a Leo; b) Musharraf of Pakistan is also a Leo; c) Manmohan Singh is a Libran.'
He writes further, 'Had Musharraf survived [as Pakistan's head], Manmohan Singh and he would have succeeded in signing a peace treaty. In the same way, Manmohan Singh will get along with the other Leo Obama. Manmohan Singh has the Moon and Venus in Leo. Therefore Leos and Manmohan Singh will get along. Obama is a Leo, Rahul [Gandhi] is a Gemini, Sonia Gandhi is a Sagittarian and all these three signs are compatible. Therefore India and America will get along in the long run.'
The growing friendship and co-operation between India and America is there for all of us to see.
The famed astrologer Daruwalla further wrote in his book's tarot section, 'We see a young man trying to close or shut the mouth of a powerful lion in the Strength (Number 11) card. It means control, discipline is the master key.'
He adds, 'In 2011 the terrorists could be active. The reason is that in Tarot card No.11, they are symbolised by the lion. The good part is that a young, strong man is closing or shutting the mouth of the lion. Therefore, it means that the lion can effectively be gagged, and his mouth closed. In other words, the terrorists can be controlled and defeated or routed.'
The interpretation here is simple and plain. Obama is the young, strong man, and he has effectively shut the mouth of terrorism, or the lion who is Bin Laden. Such accurate predictions are a great advertisement for astrology. However, it still remains to be seen that with the killing of Bin Laden, whether the scourge of terrorism can be effectively obliterated in the long run, and whether the world will live peacefully as one.
Yet, hope prevails! May Ganesha and God bless us and the world!
