“May I be like the Sun in seeing; like Fire in brilliance; like Wind in power; like Soma in fragrance; like Lord Brihaspati in intellect; like the Ashvins in beauty; like Indra-Agni in strength.” – Sama Veda Mantra: Brahmana. 11.4.14.

The Atharva Veda shoots me right in the eye of the Sun. Power, glory, achievements, victory, the tremendous incalculable force of nature — all go into this magnificent hymn. This hymn can kick out gravity. This hymn can ignite and flare your life force into a forest of Supreme Light. Yes, by this hymn you can be both good and great.

These two paragraphs apply very specially to our Bharat Mata because of the power and influence of Jupiter by Western astrology. The fine months for India will be January 21 to February 23, May 20 to June 24, July 24 to August 24, September 21 till the end of the year. In reality 2017 is a very major stepping stone to 2018. The reason is very simple. Every year is intimately connected with the next year.

If 2018 is India’s year of destiny it must start in 2017 itself. There is a very old saying, “Coming events cast their shadows before”. In 2017 we can expect all the fine arts to shine brilliantly. It means a possible Oscar for India. Our dancers will do very well, our singers will gain in popularity, our actors may be in Bollywood and our sculptors and painters may win national awards. 2017 and 2018 are simply magnificent for all the fine arts. Unknown artists will suddenly shoot up to name, fame and glory.

What About Business?
2017 will be intimately connected to 2018. The massive efforts which India will put into finances, loans, demonetisation, welfare schemes, will find happy and fruitful results in 2018. In other words 2017 is the year of great struggle, the start of mighty investments, the bucking up of infrastructure at all levels and above all, a certain magnificent plan which will be put into action for human welfare and for the common man. 2017 will be a mighty preparation for the happiness of the common man in 2018.

In this, the banks will play a very special role. Managerial skills will be in sharp evidence and be matched by great organisational abilities. Nothing happens quite by chance. It happens by careful planning, judicious execution and efficient management. In 2017 India will be learning the ropes. I repeat that 2017 is for effort and implementation, 2018 for realisation and fulfilment. Therefore, Ganesha says that it is absolutely certain that India is on her way to the very top, economically and spiritually. The moral fibre of India will be strong, durable and people will learn about ethics and cleanliness. There will be a huge transformation in ideas, opinion, custom, tradition and values.

India will be shining clean so to say in 2018, and 2017 will be the starting point of it all. Ganesha says that there is no doubt that our Bharat Mata will be a winner all the way in 2018, thanks to a mighty haul and preparation in 2017. Our diplomats will work wonders and Narendra Modi will certainly win the day. Science and technology will actually marry humanity and that by itself, is a mighty fine achievement of which India can be justly proud. Let me say that in short, India will climb the ladder of success and happiness and therefore, take her rightful place in world power. That should be very gratifying for all of us.
