There is at least one head of a political party in India who demand that aspiring candidates for party seats during elections approach her with their Vedic horoscopes in hand. Only the ones with the best disposition of the stars and a winning streak are selected. This is a leader who believes that she herself is destined to become the Prime Minister of India.
Such is the trust in Vedic Astrology in the 21st century India where the system is said to have originated and where even a mission to Mars is undertaken only after ensuring heavenly blessings.
It is likely that, despite opposition of different kinds and various degrees within his party, Narendra Modi, a Guajarati by birth and an outsider to the Hindi speaking heartland of the BJP, has really won the nomination based on his Vedic chart, which the BJP leaders rooted in Hindutwa must have realised is their best ticket for power in Delhi.
It is because, going by the principles of Vedic Astrology, once the esoteric knowledge of an elite group of seers, the Vedic Horoscope of Narendra Modi stand out as a certificate for its veracity and authenticity.
That is, assuming some party genius didn’t conceive and cast it to suit a Prime Ministerial candidate in the first place and simply claimed that it belongs to Narendra Modi.
