Big Boss Astrologer Bejan Daruwalla looks after you.

Mumbai Mirror | Sep 14, 2016 At 86, Bejan Daruwalla’s bond with Lord Ganesha is as strong as ever. According to the renowned astrologer, Ganesha says that the situation of world is going to improve by at least 25 per cent from October 2016 to October 2017. Crimes, tensions, stress and all the ill health are going to come down. On this positive note, Mirror put across five questions to the soothsayer about the most loved elephant headed god….  Read More

Ganesha says my devotee Bejan Daruwalla is cut to the bone. He is truly devastated. He is shattered. The blowing to smithereens of innocent lives, specially children, religious intolerance, violence, are the main causes for it.


Blind, senseless hatred will start lessening and withering and reducing from October 2016 to October 2017, thanks to the relationship of Jupiter, the good guy with Saturn. Your Ganesha devotee takes his stand here. He owes it to himself and to humanity. These words are written on February 3, 2015. May all the Energies go with it. I repeat the fate of the world hinges on Saturn between December 25, 2014 to December 19, 2017.

There is also a very positive side to Saturn in Sagittarius by Western Astrology. Saturn is karma and dharma. Saturn is, ‘Duty, the stern voice of the daughter of God’. By Modern Astrology Saturn is a key planet for universal consciousness. Universal consciousness helps us to evolve and be what we are capable of becoming. Saturn in Sagittarius can launch us to salvation itself is my prediction in the name of Ganesha.

Success in law, foreign affairs, aviation and space research, meditation, yoga, neuroscience, brain, output of genes. Susy is the nickname of Supersymmetry, the Higgs Boson, which will crunch time for humanity’s understanding of the universe. Research into Susy will be made, thanks to Saturn.

Tourism, pilgrimages, mountaineering, rituals and rites connected with fire and light and explosives, great showmanship in truly practical as well as spiritual matters and a mountain load of money will all go together.

Other salient features for all of us:

1) Narrowness and excessive caution will actually stifle your relationships.

2) Your greatest lesson is to deal with the other’s point of view Masterkey.

3) Like those with Saturn in Libra, you too will have to deal with the real world, though, in all fairness, you can be idealistic.

4) Communication-gaps will be your undoing.

5) Try not to fight over property matters, as it will make you writhe in agony. Settle it judiciously.

6) Travel with your friend/mate/ business associate is your best bet to happiness.

7) By December 19, 2017, we should be rid of attack from terrorists and bigots and the self righteous who think that they alone are right and everybody else completely wrong. In short we can expect people to keep an open mind.

Once again I am giving the landmarks of the important years for humanity and extending it a little more at considerable energy and cost. Actually it drains me out. The other important points start from number 7.

1: 2021, watermark for technology.

2: 2033, important for technology and genetics.

3: 2035-2037, crucial for chemicals and experiments about life and living, Jupiter in Cancer, Saturn in Virgo.

4: 2040, relationships taken to the next level, Jupiter and Saturn in Libra, year marks justice for the whole world .Yes, Ganesha says this is my devotee’s mighty prediction.

5: 2045, another unimaginable breakthrough in technology, space travel, brain mapping, time warp galaxies, Jupiter in Aquarius, Saturn in Sagittarius.

6: 2047, all of the above will be superbly analyzed, organized, methodized, mapped out in complete detail and most importantly put and harnessed to the greatest use for the greatest number of people. It is the high point or the tipping point for the service to the wide cosmos.

7: 2049 is excellent for managing your life intelligently and calculatedly.

8: 2053 to 2055 thanks to chemicals and radiation and light. God will introduce himself in a totally unique way. Yes this is my vision. I may be right or wrong.

9: Surprisingly enough just as I was writing about this vision the badge with the holy number 786 popped out of my American ephemeris. This has given me conviction and confidence. I cannot explain it logically.

10: From February 2080 to 2090 nature will reveal herself in a totally different way and manner. It is as if nature will be wearing clothes of a different fashion and colour. More than this I cannot say.

11: The year 2100 shows Jupiter and Saturn in the sign Libra by Western Astrology. This means poise, balance, equilibrium, joy and above all the beginning of an era of peace and plenty. It also marks a period of remarkable evolution in the next 100 years. This is certainly the limit of my vision as granted to me by my Lord and Master Ganesha. His is the last word.

12. Ganesha says my devotee Bejan has worked his heart out for the prediction that between March 23, 2020 and March 8, 2023 consciousness will win over ignorance, freedom will win over captivity, law and order will win over anarchy, open mind will win over closed mind and narrowness, comfort and security and speed will win over air crashes and pilot errors.

Many truly amazing events will happen. For example, the Ganges will be cleansed. Thought transfers and healing by and through the mind, germ and bacteria free world, devi worship, very surprisingly there could be a cleansing of our mind itself. Artificial implants of new memories, climate control. The secret of having a smooth, delightful, trouble free and joyous relationships will be discovered. That to me is more important than evolution itself. The many layers of consciousness will be explored and laid out before us so that we can choose according to our personal frequencies, layers of knowledge and intuition and finally it could lead to the very existence of God. These predictions will hold true between December 25, 2014 to March 8, 2023. I agree that this is a long shot. But events happen in a chain reaction over a period of time. I admit I am human. All the predictions will certainly not come true. But it is the wish and command of my Lord and Master Ganesha that I should lay my predictions before you.

Special note:

Brain hecking, putting on a “thinking cap” to increase brain power, is also another wondrous and awesome technological possibility of our Aquarian age.


Your Ganesha devotee is writing this forecast on March 18, 2015. Putin had simply disappeared for the last 10 days and has surfaced today March 18, 2015. Putin is a Libra. But he is totally unpredictable because of Pluto, the planet of power in Leo, the sign of power. This makes Putin powerful but dogmatic, wilful and ready to play all sorts of games. The next 4 years will mark the end of Putin the politician. Russia however will be able to make some progress economically and socially. Russia has staying power which is perhaps the key to survival and success. Russia under Putin comes under Gemini, Aquarius and Scorpio. Not a very easy time for it. Conditions and strong disciplinary action will take a huge toll. I report it as I see it. Like my great Hanuman I too am humble and submissive. No pretentions to greatness. Russia might have a money squeeze.


As you know dear readers I have met Narendra Modi twice and predicted his premiership. India will go from strength to strength. From September 2015 to December 20, 2017 India will be zooming ahead despite terrorism, jealousies within the BJP, Hinduvata and all the fanaticism regarding all the religions. The enemies of Modi will be within his own party. Modi is a man with a vision. At the same time Modi must teach the minister in his party to be open, tolerant and fair minded. Yes our economic situation will improve vastly, the Ganges will be cleansed (I admit that to me also the Ganges is holy and mighty). The common man as well as the industrialists will thrive under the leadership of Modi. At the same time your Ganesha devotee openly and humbly admits that from December 22, 2017 to March 23, 2020 there could be a complete overhauling of values and power and politics in India. IT IS THIS PERIOD WHICH WILL FINALLY DECIDE THE FUTURE OF INDIA. There may be a complete change in the attitude of the Indians and the way the world looks at India. But the final result will be a mighty powerful India which will take its rightful place in the world. It is during this time that India will definitely be the super power of the world. At the same time India will pay the price for it. I am 83 years old. Nothing comes without a price. It will be spirituality and the tolerance of Indian culture which will finally make India very powerful but very human. I openly admit that all my predictions do not come true. Tolerance is the key.

Ganesha warns that for, both India and America, air crashes, natural calamities, undercover activities, espionage, secret enemies, riots and rebellion could take a heavy toll. This is a nasty and ugly picture. But, there is also, as said earlier a brighter side to it. Both of the predictions are very possible. That’s real life. Life and politics is complicated and convoluted (complex). There are no easy answers. March, June, September and December are the tough and critical months.


Nawaz Shariff is good for Pakistan. This Capricornian is practical and therefore open to reason and has commonsense. Pakistan is a Sagittarian country. The military leader of Pakistan is a Gemini. Around 2017 I see a good future for Pakistan. After 30 long years I had been to Pakistan in 2014, thanks to my patron Byram Avari. I found the people very friendly and hospitable.


Prime Minister Benjamin is a Taurus and Israel is a Taurean country. Therefore he got re–elected recently. Benjamin must learn to let go a little and be flexible. Iran has a new leader in Hussain Rohan. Rohan is a Scorpio the exact opposite of Benjamin who is a Taurean. But I believe given compromise and understanding peace is possible. If I could I would lock both these leaders in a room and tell them very sweetly, do not come out till you have signed a peace treaty. This might be my fantasy. I admit it.

America, Russia, Brazil and Africa: Cancerian country America(Born July 4) will have sinew and muscle power. China will not be able to get better of America. Leo Obama will prove his mettle. For America I take three signs Cancer, Gemini and Sagittarius. The actual mix is my very own. America will lead the world. That says it all. Obama is a Leo. Ganesha says that this will be a great and glorious period for Obama and America. But America will be involved in many skirmishes and attacks by terrorists. Yes America has many enemies. America must never drop its guard. America must always be completely alert. For all its faults and foibles America is the best bet for a safe world.

Brazil and Africa are the surprise packages, not China.Yes strange as it may seem, there is a possibility of a compromise among Afghanistan, USA, Pakistan and India. This may seem like pipe dream. But if the Israeli leader Ben could go to Chancellor Addenhaur of Germany after the holocaust, the Taliban too can sit across the table and come to some sort of understanding. With the given time and the right climate, the impossible can be made possible. This is very possible by 2020, latest. 2017 could well show the way.


I go with my gut feeling. The gut feeling is something like a powerful brain in the stomach. My gut feeling is that the Cancerian German chancellor Merkel has a very important role to play on the chess board of politics. I am convinced that she is a woman of destiny. This is what I have to say to her, “Listen sweetheart, you are more brilliant and powerful than you think and therefore shoot straight and fast. Victory is yours.”

NEW DELHI – Before the parliamentary elections began in April, opinion polls had pointed to a likely victory for the Bharatiya Janata Party and its candidate for prime minister, Narendra Modi.

On Sunday, the Parsi Panchayat of Ahmedabad presented the late Dr Behramgor Sarosh Ankesaria and astrologer Bejan Daruwalla with lifetime achievement awards for their contributions to the Parsi community and humanity. About 600 members of the Parsi community in the city attended the event, held at the Parsi Sanatorium, Navrangpura on January 11. Bejan Daruwalla attended with his son Nastur Daruwalla and said he would be passing on his legacy of astrology and predictions to his son with the blessings of the Parsi Samaj.

The Scintillating and illuminous power of Jupiter
All my life I have been fascinated by the powers of Jupiter as Jupiter is fat and roly – poly like myself ! Also, it is a planet of good luck and I call it the Santa Claus of the zodiac. I look like a Santa Claus!

Majestic mountain peaks swallowed by swirling waters, the mighty Himalayas and the Alps submerged and choking in oceanic pools, large chunks of land completely inundated, fires raging everywhere and turning homes….

Bejan Daruwalla is one of the most famous astrologers in the world, and certainly, the most famous in India, today. He appears regularly on TV showsand has dedicated astrology columns in many Indian newspapers and magazines.Born on 11 July 1931, Daruwalla served as a professor of nglish in Ahmedabad.

I make predictions for some of the largest companiesin India. Not all businesses use astrologers. It’s entirely down to the individuals and it is more popular in some sectors – such as the flim industry – than others…



Our Ganesha devotee predicted the Middle East Uprising as early as October 13, 2009. Here is positive proof of it. Ganesha says the greatest good of all the people is the aim and target of Bejan Daruwalla’s life.

In Bejan’s 2010 horoscope, Bejan had said on page 9, Ganesha agrees, that the mantra, Observe! Observe! Observe! Is mighty true of both, writers and astrologers. In this piece World Horoscope, which, I am writing on June 3, 2009 I have observed that Saturn will be in Libra, Western astrology October 13, 2009 to October 5, 2009. We may expect the following happy results for the world:

1) The poor, the downtrodden, the weak will find prosperity and peace. Justice will be done to them and that to me is of vital importance.

2) On page 10, 2010 horoscope, Bejan had foretold

A new world order

Ganesha claims, there will be a new and certainly more just and fair and equitable world order replacing our present state of affairs. Why? Saturn in Libra will be in square or bad and ugly formation with Pluto in Capricorn. “The main result of this will be the end of tyranny and brute force all over the world.” Pluto opposed Saturn October 1942 to June 1945. Hitler the tyrant and dictator fell. Therefore based upon what happened in the past I have tried to have a peep in to the future

The 2010 book, was in the market 2009, October. The life of these astro books is ONLY A YEAR. The Middle East uprising and Gadaff’s death is the proof of the predictions.

Barack Obama


Let me tell you a secret. Obama subconsciously expects India to help him personally, America in general, and the world at large.This is my intuition, my gut feeling.

Ganesha says Obama, is a man of destiny. He was born on August 4, 1961. The number 4 has played a pivotal or important part in the history of America.

1. The Declaration of Independence of America was on July 4.

2. Thomas Jefferson (author of the Declaration of Independence) died on July 4.

3. President James Munroe (famous for the Munroe doctrine) died on July 4.

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. Number 4 symbolises Uranus. Uranus symbolises revolution, radical ideas, tsunami of freedom, science, aviation, electronics, NEW and DIFFERENT MODES of both, communication and transport and publicity and news and views and messages. A brave new world for sure!

Sachin Tendulkar


Tendulkar was born on April 24, 1973. His planet the sun was in the 4th degree of Taurus. The Interpretation by degree Speciality, Rick Klimokh is “A POT OF GOLD AT THE END OF A RAINBOW. Hopefulness, Inspirational belief. Renewal of resolve.” This 1995 prediction was amazing on two counts.

The first was the pot of gold at the end of a rainbow, meaning thereby that at the end of his career he will be immensely rich. The second was, the renewal of resolve. We all know that our darling Tendulkar had many major health problems and body repairs. His greatness was, and is, in the courageous resolution to countinue with hope determination courage. My lord and Master Ganesha says that from 2010 – October 6, retire. Yes I have met him more than once.

Sterling qualities balanced outlook, thorough knowledge of every aspect of the game, make him a real role mode.l In short a great cricketer of absolute integrity. To me there can be no greater praise than that denoted by the word INTERGRITY. May 2008 will be great for him.

Aamir Khan

Aamir Khan

Aamir Khan possibly India’s best actor was born destily but born march 14. Call it coincidence or destiny but the first ever talking Indian film was on March 14! Aamir is a Piscean. Pisces is under the control of Jupiter and Neptune actually mens imagination inspiration images therefore Neptune is the boss planet of films.

The degree for Amir Khan is 25 Pisces. It shows a crown and an upright sword. It mens a great things. His mind will be upright and sustained by faith. It is a degree of victory. It certainly confirms that Aamir is made for greatness and glory. But in his personal life sorrow and misunderstanding will be his shadows. I wish him well. He deserves it. Possibly his finest year will be 2010. He is the jewel of India

Sharukh Khan

Sharukh Khan

Shahrukh khan was born on November 2, 1965. The interpretation of his degree is “the king of the Fairies returns to his domain. Entering a new realm searching for the “true home” or real center. Renewed vitality versus fantasy. I had then given my own Interpretation of it in the 1995 book. I have said I see this finely turned actor in film which fuses reality and escape and that film will most certainly make him immortal.

My conclusions are shahrukh wants to be well centred in life, he has tremendous inner reserves of strength and vitality (this is very true of Scorpios), and he has the rare gift of fusing or merging fantasy and reality. Both Shahrukh and Amitabh Bachanan have Jupiter planet of popularity and good-luck in the emotional sign Cancer. A very big plus point. shahrukh has the mount of moon and Venus powerfully developed near his wrist. Moon means the masses. Venus symbolises all the arts. Therefore a feather in his cap. Shahrukh great survivor as scorpio is a fixed sign. But healthwise he should take the greatest possible care from October 5, 2012. As early as 1995 I had warned him about it in my Annual horoscope. May Allah and Ganesha both go with him.

Mukesh Ambani

Mukesh Ambani

Ganesha says the great secret of accurate prediction is in the art of synthesis, that is, combining different methods Mukesh Ambani. The gaint of industries was born on April 19, 1957. The number 19 stands for the sun the king of the planets. In the the Tarot card it means great victory and joy.

April Corresponds to the sigh of the pioneer and leader. Adding it all up it becomes obvious that he was born to be a force to reckon with. All the readers born on April 19 can take a leaf out of the notebook of Mukesh .The degree of Mukesh, western astrology is 29. It means “Lofty ideals, great powers, realising goals famous children, successful enterprise yearning for hire harmony.” By Western astrology two more features are prominent, namely, definite danger of accidents, and fear of losing control over himself and others. Mukesh is man with a vision 19-4-1957 comes to 36 =3 + 6 = 9. Both the compound number 36 and the single number 9 are lucky. His wife Nita is a Scorpio. Synthesis all of it I must do my dharma of telling them that October 2012 to December 23, 2014 may be trying and difficult in more ways than one. At the same time it is quite possible that I may go wrong and nothing bad will happen. I am a ganesha devotee, very positive, and they deserve the best.

I have met their father Dhirubhai twise by invitation. I had said in Face to Face, BBC that Dhirubhai was big and he would become great. But I had also warned him about taking great care of his health. The rest is history. I am one year older to Dhirubhai and Ratan Tata were both born on December 28. May Ganesha bless Mukesh and Nita.

Anil Ambani

Anil Ambani

Anil and Tina Ambani make a very powerful pair. Both are airy signs Anil June 4, Tina Feb11. On the sets of Desh Pardesh I had an astro-numero session with both, Tina and Dev Anand. Tina was born on feb11. She is a strong Guju. She teased me, “Look well, Bawaji or I will come after you! I am Happy to say that I had told her great things.

Anil should be good in communication, knowledge skills, display, organization and paradoxically managerial ability. Saturn in Capricorn by western astrology indicates that 2008 should be good for him. Despite the turbulence in the stock market, he should do well. Anil’s degree is 12 in the sigh Gemini. It means expressiveness, charm, Bluntness. Pushing social limits. Restlessness and active and dominating and yet hesitant. It is paradoxical. 2008 will have a direct link with 2009, financially and emotionally. It will turn out well. Very surprisingly the tough period for Anil and Tina is the same as that for Mukesh and Nita, namely October 2012 to December 23, 2014. Let me however make it absolutely clear that the bad period for these four will be only relatively tough. They are blessed by god and god alone is the supreme astrologer. The best thing about them is that they are great force for public good.Mukesh is an Arian. Jupiter the planet of power and plenty will be in Aries 2010 –2011. The going will be excellent.

Ganesha says, let us add numerology to the mixture of astrology and the tarol card. The name Ambani comes to a (1) m (4) b (2) a (1) n (s) I (1) = 14 The number 14 means interaction, union, success, Fast, thinking good result but also changes in Partnership.

The number 14 means interaction, union, success, Fast, thinking, good results but also changes in Partnerships,deals, relationships. It shows success with a certain need for caution. The great positive force of the number 14 is mighty versatility. Today we are fascinated by genetics. I paid very speacial attention to the Headline on the palm of Dhirubhai. It was straight as a ruler. And ran right across the palm. It meant initiative, tremendous organisation and managerial ability, a quick grasp of situations, and above all the knack of getting things done efficiently. Yes, these qualities have been passed on to the two sons. That is what makes them what they are.

Mahendra Singh Dhoni

Mahendra Singh Dhoni

Ganesha says, the whole cricketing world knows and acknowledges that, Dhoni attained a year ago not only the Number 1 positive in the ICC ODI Top 10, But became the quickest and the fastest to achieve it, knocking off the great Brian Lara’s previous record. Runs count. Runs have universal language.

Dhoni is mighty successful as an ODI captain. It is the Jupiter- Saturn combination in libra which is directly responsible for dhoni’s twin abilities: (a) Dour defence ( Saturn) (b) powerful strokes ( Jupiter). Finally Rahu in the powerful, aggressive sigh Leo gives a sledge- hammer force to this drives and sixers. Dhoni has his sun in the 14th degree of cancer. The symbol is a bright star which flashes and sparkles in a deep blue atmosphere. Gracious Ganesha, What a perfect symbol for Dhoni? It is obvious that dhoni is a fine Captain.

Where does Dhoni go from here? Till 2011 Dhoni should have it made. Paradoxcically in 2010–2011 he could achieve his greatest ambition in life also. Therefore I say mixed results. Real life is Sun and shadow. Dhoni should be there till 2016 or 2020 Please remember cancerians are very tenacious. Example Ganguly and Gavaskar. Dhoni is good for India and that’s what matters.

TRUMP WILL SLUMP INTO A DUMP (Your Ganesha devotee keeps an open mind. He therefore openly admits that he could be wrong)

By Bejan Daruwalla

Ganesha says Trump will slump into a dump. Why? High velocity ego. Rigid. Insular. Hatred of migrants, media, misinformation. Terribly insecure. At war with his own self. A split personality right down the middle.

These are not wild accusations. Firstly it is my gut feeling. That’s most important for a psychic, astrologer, spiritual master. The gut feeling according to me is the mind, the inspiration, the imagination, the ESP speaking through the stomach. There is immense immaturity, lack of poise and balance. Great aggression and hatred in the very personality of Trump. This is what I have observed, noticed, felt, recognised every time I see him ram his ideas and opinions down the throats of others. To me this is reprehensible, un-American and certainly not becoming a President. In short he is a man with heavy blinkers on both the sides.

Trump was born on June 14. The tarot card of number 14 shows a lady pouring water from one vessel to another vessel. That means a flow of energy from one side to the other side. As this energy flows there will be balance and poise. The card itself is named as temperance. Temperance means moderation and patience and evaluation in all the activities of life. This is most certainly absent in Trump. It is this imbalance which causes psychological damage to him. For example this damage is reflected in the decision of Trump to miss the media dinner date fixed by the glitzy White Correspondent’s Association annual dinner. (27th February 2017, Times of India)

I do not wish to go into the technicalities of his horoscope because people may not believe in astrology and secondly technical aspects are boring. But the symbol of Gemini is the twins. Therefore it is a dual or double bodied sign. Double bodied sign is more likely to split. And that I know is the case with Trump.

In astrology Pluto signifies the devastating energy of the atom bomb. Mars also shows combative aggression. Both these combative planets are right at the top of his chart. It means double aggression, attack, irritation, authority, dictatorship, bullyism and most certainly no respect and understanding of the hearts and minds of all those who differ from him. In other words Donald Trump just does not have an open mind, a tolerance of opinion different from his and a singular belief that he alone is right and others are evil. He calls others who differ from him as un-American. He is insular to the point of no return.


Donald Trump has called others who differ from him as “Enemy of the People”. The same words were used by, Maximilien Robespierre, Henrik Ibsen and Joseph Stalin, the Soviet dictator who sent hundreds of thousands of alleged “enemies of the people” to their deaths. I want to play it fair and square.

We all know that very recently Trump has fired FBI Director James Comey for the simple reason that he could not stomach him. This is theme edge of the wedge. It shows a horrible inner compulsion of a total distaste to be opposed in any way. Mentally it spells doom. In American language Trump is a nut case. Bigotry is the second name of Trump.

Saturn the planet of disappointment, despair, death may not allow him to complete his term. This according to me is a very strong possibility. The months for it are June, December, September and March in particular. My last word is Trump must learn to be farsighted, poised, balanced and supremely tolerant. In modern times nobody can get away with murder. It is very obvious that as a professional fair minded impartial astrologer I can have nothing personally against Trump.



Designer Babies are the hope for humanity

By Ganesha Bejan Daruwalla 

Ganesha says, “The child is the father of the man” is what we all know. But now the new saying will be, “Designer babies are the hope for humanity”. Why and how?

We are right now in the Aquarian Age. The Aquarian age stands for science, technology, new modes of thinking, connectivity, surgery, artificial intelligence, flying cars, the ability to control nature and above all our own evolution through revolution.

A case in point is Designer babies. Designer babies have much to do with genes and embryo. These babies will be free of disease. They will be intelligent, not retarded and defective, without dementia and diseases. More importantly the attributes and characteristics we want to give them will be there for the asking. In other words something like a new model for a car, or a face lift. In other words we can pick and choose what we want our child to be.

Astrologically also the time is ripe. By Western astrology from October 11, 2017 to November 8, 2020 Jupiter the planet of prosperity and good luck will be in the sign Scorpio. In simple terms Scorpio is directly associated with life – death – regeneration. Life means the child as it is. Death means the end of the line. Regeneration means the child reassembled, resurrected and actually made new and different. And this is what the biologist and experts of genetics are trying to do as you are reading this piece. Therefore by astrology its surprisingly enough also fills the bill.

Your former 87 years old professor of English realises too well that massive problems of ethics, moral conduct, integrity are involved in this. Hitler with his master race theory still sends shivers down our spine. But as an astrologer of more than 80 years of experience I have had parents coming to me and being utterly miserable about children who are retarded, defective, unable to fend for themselves. Two of my own children are not exactly normal. Therefore I know where the shoe pinches. If we can improve the conditions of these innocent but helpless children in any possible way it is our duty, our dharma to do so.

Cynics, dogmatic persons, perhaps a few religious heads will disagree with me by saying that we have no right to interfere with the course and sap of Nature. But let me quote just one example. The present mighty aviation industry owes much to the former test pilots who experimented with aeroplanes at the cost of their own lives. Nothing ventured nothing gained is certainly true. Times have changed. The race of life must start on an equal footing for all the children. That is the crux. We can at least try to change the sorry scheme of things entire and bring it nearer the heart’s secret desire to quote Omar Khayam. Let me put it all in another way. We are all energies powerful and capable of creating a better and brighter world. To me at least nothing but nothing in the world is more important than the development of a child. The child needs the soil of security, the air of curiosity and the waters of love. But above all the child needs to be normal, active, intelligent, brave and honest. All these attributes are now possible to be given to the child. If we do not do so generations to come would be more than welcome to whiplash us into ignominy, shame and defeat. In short I am trying to say we are human beings. We can be demi Gods. We now have the technology and the ability to go to the end of the line – and even beyond. Yes we have the power to meet God and Mother Nature in all Her abundance and variety. Let us do so.
