How To Calculate Thithi Hindu Festivals US Europe

In Hinduism on April 17, 2014 at 08:09

The Devout in the US face this problem of finding out the dates of Hindu Festivals,Thithis, Amavasya,Upakarma ,Gayatri Japa and other Festivals like

Deepavai Makara Sankaranthi.


Hindu way of Calculation of Time

Time Calculation by The Hindus


The general practice as I understand from the US and UK is that the priests there use some kind of Calculators, convert the days /dates directly and


arrive at the Information.


I received  some information  on this,


  Let us consider the recent lunar eclipse which was observed in USA (15 April 2014) and not in India. It should occur only on a full moon day even in USA as it is in India. According to Srirangam punchangam the pournami was approximately from 2pm  Monday(14th April) to2pm  Tuesday in Srirangam. This puts the middle of Poornima about 2am on Tuesday in Srirangam. The total lunar eclipse occurred about2am central time, Tuesday, in USA.  This clearly shows that we should apply Indian timings as they are to correspond to the same timings with sun rise correction in USA.  

   I was taken aback when some temples in USA observed Gayathri Japam on the day when lunar eclipse was going on about 4, 5 years back asking followers to wait to do the japam until the eclipse came to an end instead of doing Upakarma on that day ( that day being a pournami  as predicted in Indian punchangam ). Gayathri japam should be done early morning after Sandya vandam on the following day of Upakarma. There are no Doshams attached to this.

  The USA temple priests are not punchanga nirnayam experts eventhough they are asked to act like one. The Indian astrologers still believe the earth to be flat and at the center of our planetary system. So their opinions to translate the timings to suite other geographical regions are not acceptable.”

Dr.K.P Sarathy.


Valid Point.


What is the correct procedure?


Find the time of Sun Rise.


Check the Panchaangam for Thithi , Nakshatra presence in the day in Naazhkai.


Covert the Naazhikai into normal time.(One Naazhikai-24 minutes)


In conjunction with the Sunrise find out the presence of Thithi on a particular day.


Those who follow Chaandramaana,(Lunar Calendar), must celebrate the function on the day when the Thithis is least(Thithi should be less than 51 Naazhikai)


For more on this please refer my posts on this subject under Hinduism/Time.


The reason to say that direct conversion is incorrect is that our Panchanga Timings are not Absolute.

Rahul Gandhi Arrested In US Vajpayee Released Him

In India on April 12, 2014 at 21:26

The story about Rahul Gandhi being arrested in the US along with his Live-in  Colombian Girl friend has been doing the round for some time now.


Though I am aware of it I did not know of this particular news item.

Rahul Gandhi with His Girl Friend

Rahul Gandhi With His girl Friend from Colombia,Juvenitta-Veronique



Mr.Anil Gupta, a regular reader of my blogs mentioned this while commenting on my post ‘Modi’s Marriage, Karunanidhi Digvijay Answer These”


As usual Mr.Gupta is right on target.


Thank you.


As is confirmed now, Vajpayee seems to have interfered and had Rahul Gandhi released after having been detained by the FBI.



Now, Rahul Gandhi talks of System Failure, People empowerment,Corruption Mind set etc !(read my post on Rahul Gandhi’s TimesNow Interview)


Well facts speak for themselves.




A suit has been filed in the high court in Lucknow seeking information about the alleged detention of Congress MP Rahul Gandhi and his Columbian girlfriend by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) in 2001.
According to the public interest litigation, Rahul, the son of Congress president Sonia Gandhi, and his companion were released after being detained at Boston airport following the intervention of the Prime Minister’s Office.
At that time, Atal Bihari Vajpayee was the Indian prime minister and Rahul was not a member of the Parliament.
“Vajpayee’s principal secretary and then national security adviser Brajesh Misra spoke to top US authorities to enable Rahul Gandhi and his girlfriend to get away,” claimed Prem Chandra Sharma, who moved the court along with three others.
The petition alleged that Rahul was found in illegal possession of about $ 200,000.
And it was in that connection that the FBI had detained him along with his girlfriend on Sep 21, 2001.
The FBI was said to have sought an explanation about Rahul’s possession of such a huge amount of money, which he was unable to provide, the petition said.
The petition sought a writ of mandamus to the Indian ambassador to the US as well as the union home secretary to make a disclosure about the entire episode.

On September 27, 2001 Rahul Gandhi MP and his Columbian live in girl friend of Kerala backwater tourist centre fame, Juanita alias Veronique, was arrested in United States of America’s Logan airport in Boston, by the FBI.
Rahul was having an Italian passport and was carrying suitcase full of dollars.
Some say it was about was it $2 million. This huge dollar amount generated suspicion with the US authorities.
Rahul and his girl friend was thus detained by FBI.
FBI suspected that Rahul was carrying terrorist funds or drug money for laundering in US. Rahuls GF is an daugter of an Columbian Drugs dealer
. What money Rahul Gandhi was carrying? Was it another Bofors type pay off?
Was it Columbian drug money on behalf of his Columbian girl friend?
Or was it fund for Osama Bin Laden group, as it is known that the Muslim terrorists are using Christians as front men for laundering terrorist funds as the normal banking channels are being monitored by FBI.
.Rahul called his mother Sonia Gandhi in India .
In turn Sonia called Brijesh Mishra, the former National Security Advisor and a key aide to former prime minister Atal Behari Vajpayee at the Prime Ministers Office. Brijesh Mishra intervened on behalf of our PM Vajpayee with the US Administration for the release Rahul from FBI custody.
Brijesh Mishra has strong connections with Sonia Gandhi’s Italian family through his daughter Jyotsna.
Jyotsna is married to an Italian and lives in Italy .
Rahul Gandhi was released only when the Indian Ambassador intervened and gave assurances to the State Department that Rahul Gandhi will be produced for any future enquiry by FBI.
Not only that as a patriot, it was the duty of Brijesh Mishra to find out the reasons for the arrest and inform our CBI to take necessary further steps.
Brijesh Mishra did not do any such thing.
The incident clearly shows that Brajesh Mishra was working for Sonia Gandhi, that he had deep connections with US state department.

US Destroyed Missing Malaysia Plane In Bomb Site

In US on April 6, 2014 at 16:19

No comments from the US Officials as yet.


The more than usual silence is deafening.


This story in my view needs more corroboration and US Government is not helping by its silence.

As the world is yet puzzled about the missing Malaysian plane, the Malaysia Airlines Boeing 777-200ER operating the flight disappeared with 227 passengers of 15 nationalities and 12 crew members on board, following its last contact with air traffic control less than an hour after take-off.


A joint search-and-rescue effort covering an area of 27,000 sq mi (70,000 km2) in the busy Strait of Malacca and the South China Sea is being conducted by more than 12 countries.


Vietnam briefly reduced its efforts on 11 March, but the search area continued to expand and searchers began to look for evidence on land.


Nuclear Bomb Site Radar Reading

The mysterious plume as it appeared on the radar at Plymouth State Weather Centre as it headed toward Cannon Air Force Base.


On 12 March, authorities also began to search the Andaman Sea, north of the Strait of Malacca, and the Malaysian government requested help from India to search in the area.


On 11 March, it was reported that military radar indicated the aircraft turned west and continued flying for 70 minutes before disappearing near Pulau Perak; it “changed course after Kota Bharu and took a lower altitude.


Inspite of the intensive international search and rescue mission to find flight MH370 including authorities from 11 countries no one has yet been able to zero-in the exact location of the crash.


What remains “perplexing” about this incident, GRU analysts in this report say, are why the American mainstream media outlets have yet to demand from the Obama regime the radar plots and satellite images of the Indian Ocean and South China Sea regions as the US military covers this entire area from Diego Garcia like no other seas in the world due to its vital shipping and air lanes.

Most sadly, this report concludes, the US is actually able to conceal the reason(s) for the “disappearance” of Flight 370 as they have already done so after the events of 11 September 2001 when the then Bush regime “disappeared” American Airlines Flight 77 and its 64 passengers and crew after falsely claiming it hit the Pentagon, but which was confirmed by the CNN News Service not to have happened.


As to how the US Navy was able to divert Flight 370 to its Diego Garcia base, this report says, appears to have been accomplished remotely as this Boeing 777-200ER aircraft is equipped with a fly-by-wire (FBW) system that replaces the conventional manual flight controls of an aircraft with an electronic interface allowing it to be controlled like any drone-type aircraft.

However, this report notes, though this aircraft can be controlled remotely, the same cannot be said of its communication systems which can only be shut down manually; and in the case of Flight 370, its data reporting system was shut down at 1:07 a.m., followed by its transponder (which transmits location and altitude) which was shut down at 1:21 a.m.


The GRU had previously, reported their “puzzlement” as to why the United States Navy “captured and then diverted” this Malaysia Airlines civilian aircraft from its intended flight-path to the Diego Garcia atoll, an assessment that has subsequently been verified by radar tracks showing the mysterious US military flights moving about this aircraft immediately prior to its “disappearance.”

An ideology is a set of conscious and unconscious ideas that constitute one’s goals, expectations, and actions. An ideology is a comprehensive vision, a way of looking at things (compare worldview) as in several philosophical tendencies (see political ideologies), or a set of ideas proposed by the dominant class of a society to all members of this society (a “received consciousness” or product of socialization).

Ideologies are systems of abstract thought applied to public matters and thus make this concept central to politics. Implicitly every political or economic tendency entails an ideology whether or not it is propounded as an explicit system of thought.” ( wiki)

Vote Narendra Modi Despite BJP 10 Reasons

In India on March 13, 2014 at 08:06

Right man in the wrong Party.

Political parties find their election candidates embarrassing at times.

And the candidate , in general, has one goal, to defeat the opponent at the Polls.

Narendra Modi is one such.

The party he belongs to, at times, embarrasses him.

BJP is not  a bad party, of late it is becoming a divided House.

It is so democratic that you an hear a virtual Babel Tower on every issue, with the result,the issues being debated, are lost.

Despite knowing pretty well it is Narendra Modi who has caught the imagination  of a disillusioned people,many BJP leaders want to play spoil sport over Modi.

While people do want Narendra Modi as Prime Minister of India, it is the BJP’s antics and funny strategies that make one pause,,

Is it worth voting BJP to ensure Narendra Modi coming to Power?

Such is the pull of warring factions.

If Modi commands respect and affection it is because of His forthrightness, calling a spade as one and his commitment to the oft touted now diluted principles  of the BJP.

Despite the confusion BJP had made in stitching together alliances for the elections, this is why BJP should be voted to power, if only to ensure that Modi becomes the PM.

Pray that BJP does not throw the spanner in the works.

Why should one vote for Narendra Modi, through BJP?

Narendra Modi speaks.

Narendra Modi Quotes on Governance.

1.Transparency and Integrity.

Modis’ running of the Gujarat has been one of transpareny and he minces no words when he implements any programme for the welfare of the State.

On Free distribution of power , he declared that electricity costs money, he can not afford to offer freebies and people should pay for it.

Result Gujarat is more than self-sufficient in Power in India, the only one.

Or look at the way he appoints enquiry into his own deeds if necessary.

Or his wooing of Business, at the same time he is not being run by the corporate.

He nails them when warranted.

Infrastructure, Roads, Public distribution, way ahead of the other States.

On Godhra Riots, the Center has tried all the avenues open to it , to sully his name.

Special team, CBI and even the Supreme Court.

Embarrassing for them all of them have given a clean chit to Modi in the riots in Gujarat.

The socalled “Muslims living in fear in Gujarat’ is nullified by the declaration of the Community that Modi is not against them, but terrorism

2.Administration Open honest and swift

He is accessible, unlike the other able administrator, Jayalalithaa the CM of Tamil Nadu.

3.Modi  is clear on his foreign policy be it Pakistan, Bangladesh or the US.

He does not seem to be cowed by the US nor rattled by the fact he might lose votes if he is soft with Pakistan

On immigrants in Assam, West Bengal , he is for sending them back or at least regulating them.

4.As of date none of the corruption charges made against his has stuck for there is nothing to stick.

5.He has not or is presiding over scams, starting from Bofors, through 2G, ISRO-Dewas-Antrix,,CWG,Maharashtra irrigation,Thorium,Adarsh,defence coffin purchase…

6.Nor has he had his name implicated in an Italian Court for Corruption in Westland Helicopter deal.

7.He does not have a Swiss bank account.

8.He was not thrust as the prime Ministerial Candidate as Congress has done.

9.He does not foist Cases.

10.He stands by his Officers, does not make them scape goats.

India has a Party system and does not have a Presidential form of governance.

BJP has placed the cart before the Horse by projection Narendra Modi as the would be PM..

Hope BJP does not upset the Cart.
