Comments : This is a collection of essays, in sum, an original work, rare in this field. Some interesting new techniques. One of them, the 180 year cycle, which is 15 cycles of Jupiter, 6 cycles of Saturn, and ten cycles of Rahu-Ketu. (I believe that 180 years is the minimum necessary to bring these three into one cycle.) Much of this book is a running commentary on contemporary Indian history, from the 1980’s to the present. From an essay published in 1991, he considers that New Delhi may not always be the capital of India, an interesting idea. Reacting to B.V. Raman’s prediction of a major world war in 2000, Pathak says that Raman is flatly wrong. For the mundane astrologer, some interesting reading.
