Author Bio


You may call yourself the most diehard scoffer, and cynical skeptic, as am I, but when asked to speak nothing but the truth, we are going to admit, albeit a bit wryly that whenever we pick up a paper, or open a journal, there is a chance, that we are going to go straight to the daily horoscope or the astrology column for a peek into the future.

This book is going to tell you all about the reason and rationale behind star signs, astrology and horoscopes, especially in countries where horoscopes are still being read during the initial matchmaking stages. The idea that the stars rule our faith, and the stars are going to come to the rescue, if we appease the gods or the planets is an innate belief, which has managed to influence the lives of billions of human beings down the ages.

Many of the incidents here, which I am going to recount are based on knowledge and also experience, because, let me admit it, as a full-fledged mischief maker at university, I had an enviable reputation of being able to predict what happened next, fortunes, and was well known as a palmist. What happened then, and how I often took advantage of this is going to tell you all about how we charlatans work.
