The death of late Health Minister Naba Das was predestined. Not us, but the Asali Khadiratna Panjika, a Hindu astronomical almanac, is claiming this. 

While it is impossible to predict the future, but on its 17th page, the almanac has mentioned that the people of Odisha will be worried after losing a popular political leader. 

When contacted, astrologer Ranjan Kumar Mohapatra said, “It was mentioned in the Panjika that a political leader’s untimely death would occur. And this happened too. This stands testimony to the fact that the Indian astrology is true in the truest sense.”

As of now, it is almost clear that late leader Naba Das was well aware of him suffering the bad effects of Shani Dasha. This is why he had planted Shami tree on the premises of his house and visited Shani Shingnapur temple in Maharashtra, a famous shrine dedicated to Lord Shani. The tithi of the day was Triveni Amavasya. 

Besides performing ‘Shani Abhisek’, Das had also donated a gold pot (Kalash) reportedly worth Rs 1 crore to the shrine. However, he later denied the report saying the golden Kalash was worth Rs 10 lakh and not Rs 1 crore.  

But here, the views of the astrologers totally differ from what Das had performed. 

“In astrology, police are likened to Lord Shani. Shani is the lord of justice. If someone donates a gold pot to the Lord after committing something wrong, it can never be assumed that the Lord’s judgement will be changed for a particular act,” said astrologer Dr Manoj Lenka. 

According to Bhrugu Jyotish Dr Sridhar Acharya, “If someone is suffering from Shani Dasha, they may get injured from any weapon. And what late Health Minister Naba Das had done is totally wrong. Gold should never be offered to Lord Shani. Instead, the sufferer should donate black coloured cow and calf, sesame oil, salt, iron pot, leather shoes, horse gram etc.”

“I have seen in the video that the late Health Minister was wearing black clothes and was touching the idol of Lord Shani and anointing the Lord, which was another mistake committed by him. He should have had the puja performed by Brahmins,” observed Acharya. 

Notably, Lord Shani entered Aquarius from Capricorn on January 17. The Lord’s harmful effects are still on the Capricorn. Since late Health Minister Naba Das’s zodiac sign is Capricorn, he could have suffered such a fatal attack due to the influence of the planet, the astrologers believe.
