Astrology Meets Caesareans to Deliver Astrologically Auspicious Babies,INDIA


KOLKATA, INDIA, February 16, 2010: When Kanwal Preet was told by her doctor she was due to give birth on January 22 she could not hide her disappointment. The date came more than a week after the Hindu festival of Makar Sankranti. Instead, she demanded that her obstetrician arrange to have the baby delivered by Caesarean section, and on January 13 in the BL Kapur Memorial Hospital in New Delhi her baby girl was brought into the world on the day the sun moved into Capricorn according to Hindu astrology.

Across India, Hindu couples are increasingly consulting their astrologers to arrange the timing of births to correspond with favorable dates on the astrological calendar. The parents-to-be believe an “astrochild” will enjoy good health, happiness and success in the future. Dr.Dinesh Kansal, a senior physician at the hospital, said Mrs. Preet had been medically ready to undergo the caesarean any day after January 8 and when she chose the day of the Makar Sankranti as the date of delivery, the doctors were happy to fulfill her wish.

Dr. Nistar Ahmed, an obstetrician in the Kolkata hospital, said he regularly receives requests to carry out Caesarean sections to coincide with astrological dates and times. In most cases, he said, he agrees to carry out the operation. “If parents insist on some auspicious time for the delivery of their children we usually oblige if from a medical point of view it does not expose the baby and the would-be mother to an increased level of risk,” Dr Ahmed said. “On certain dates… I see a four- or five-fold increase in the number of requests for Caesarean sections.”

In good old days Rishi Munni’s had divya gyan and complete knowledge of the placement of all the planets through which they could predict and tell everything about the past, present & future of an individual.
