Zodiac

The horoscopes had been matched.Superb match ,the astrologer said .It's fixed then. The marriage was just like any typical Indian wedding.Lots of relatives,family ,friends ,etal.

The wedding over,they left for the honeymoon. The bride & the bridegroom seemed to be over the moon.It was too perfect.Honeymoon over ,they returned home.One year later ,they became proud parents to a pair of twins...a boy & a girl.The family was now complete.They felt blessed.The horoscopes of the babies were drawn.They will be lucky ,it was predicted from their birth charts.

Another year passed by.The parents & twins went on a trip to the mountains for a vacation.Coming back ,tragedy struck.It was a major accident.The parents died on the spot.They were together in death as predicted .The kids were lucky to have escaped without a scratch as foretold.The zodiac was right.Or was it  ? The driver of the family was speeding.He was talking on his mobile & failed to see the truck coming from the bend on the mountain road.


The result, was two lives unnecessarily lost .The grand parents were distressed.Some  advised them to seek peace with yoga & pranayam.Many  started advising the grandparents to do shanti ,puja etc to set right, whatever was wrong with the horoscopes of the twins.And the preparations began........

This is  my blog post for "Z " for the A to Z Blogging Challenge.

I wonder when we will stop obsessing over horoscopes in India. So many failed marriages around even when the horoscopes are a perfect match!

Tragic turn of events. Horoscopes or horrorscopes?

Cynthia Rodrigues Manchekar said...

True. Horoscopes can't really predict the future exactly. They may be true in a broad sense, on occasion, but they have no way of predicting the range of unexpected events that life throws our way.

Thank you,Richa ! Yes,we still believe in horoscopes.

Vasudha Rao said...

Thank you,Prathima !It is horrorscope,as you rightly said.

Vasudha Rao said...

Thanks,Cynthia ! The zodiac can never predict future accurately.It is up to us to work on it.

Horoscopes are guidelines and definitely show a path. But that's all it is. A path, a guidline. It's up to us to interpret and decide correctly. However, if something is destined to happen, it will. Live life to the fullest, do good and be good is my motto. Cheers and congrats on completing the challenge :)

Vasudha Rao said...

Thanks,Deepa for your generous words !Yes,you rightly siad ,it is our karma which determines our life.

Astrology is a science too and people with half baked knowledge make these predictions and we live to tell the tale.
