About the Author

U.c. Mahajan was born at Sujanpur Tira (H.P.) in 1930. He retired as Principal, Government College, Hamirpur(H.P.) in 1988. His interest in Astrology began when he came across old Urdu editions of Lal Kitab. Since then, he has mastered the finest nuances of these books and other ancient texis. His other books on Astrology, Lal Kitab and Horoscope Reading Made Easy, published by Pustak Mahal have been widely acclaimed.

This, his third book, written in a lucid and easy-to-understand style, is a comprehensive text on Astrology as well as being practically an astrological ready reckoner. No student or practitioner of Astrology can afford to be without this unique and indispensable book.


Let me confess that till 1996, I was a novice and knew nothing about the fundamentals of Astrology. I requested some of the astrologers of the town to teach me the basics of Hindu Predictive Astrology, but to my utter dismay, they all dissuaded me from venturing into the field which had given nightmares to even the greatest of astrologers. But I remained undaunted and kept on reading books on this 'Ancient Science of Prediction' in Urdu, English and Hindi. Today, after a lapse of about ten years, I can claim to have 'some', if not 'complete' knowledge of the subject.

I know that none except God is infallible; but an astrologer who is imbued with a love for this science and welfare of human beings at heart, can relieve the sufferings of the people with certain astrological remedies. Today, even the doctors, who were earlier sceptical about the efficacy of such remedies, heal their patients with astrological charts. Let me reiterate that I have cured many patients with these remedies; even doctors will vouch for my assertions.

My aim in writing this series is to apprise the people of the finest nuances of astrology and to prove that it is not 'humbug' or 'hoaxology', as vociferously suggested by certain people who claim that they are out to destroy such 'false myths' and 'superstitions'. Let me confidently say that astrology is a time- tested science. It is the most precious heritage of ours. We may err, but astrology never goes wrong. The fault, dear Brutus, lies in us, and not in this "Science of Gods".

Let me pay my homage to my revered parents Late Shrimati Maya Devi and Lala Ghamir Chand Kaistha {of Mohalla Porian, Sujanpur Tira, Distt. Hamirpur (H.P.)}. They are blessing me from heavens. I still have my ancestral house in Himachal Pradesh. Let me also express my love to my wife Sudarshan Mahajan and my children Rajiv, Sanjeev and Sandeep, their spouses Nirupma, Manisha and Shivali and my grandchildren Karan, Neha, Apoorva, Akshit and Arsh, my brothers, friends and well-wishers.

I also take this opportunity of expressing my thanks to my publishers - Mis Pustak Mahal, Daryaganj, New Delhi, and its team of professionals associated with production for publishing my books on astrology. Suggestions will be thankfully acknowledged and incorporated in the next edition.
