Mahinda In Dire Straits

By Rajasingham Jayadevan

President Mahinda Rajapaksa has taken a calculated gamble when odds were seriously against him to call the Presidential election on 8 January 2015. Intoxicated with power, greed and destined by his fate, the President could not imagine or visualise the predicament he could face at the forthcoming presidential election.

For those who believe in astrological predictions, the major Saturn change on 2 November 2014 for his Aeris Raasi is definitely not helpful for him.  According to general predictions- Overview:

‘Sani Bhagawan is moving from the 7th house to the 8th house. You are coming out of Kandaka Sani but entering onto the worst part of Asthama Sani. Right now things are bad, but going forward it will become worse and terrible. You may expect to have problems in each and every aspect of your life. The intensity of the problems will be extreme from Dec 2014 to July 2015. You will have good relief when Jupiter is moving onto your Poorva Punya Sthanam by July 2015. Overall, you cannot expect any good results from Saturn, but other transiting planets can help you. Avoid doing any kind of investments for the next 3 years. Even though Jupiter is in your favourable spot for one year, you need to take my predictions to make sure you are prepared for the worst and hope for the best. Otherwise you do not need to continue reading my predictions from this point ( KT Astrologer – Network Bandwidth Monitor).

Mahinda KatmanduDetailed predictions do not give any hope for Mahinda Rajapaksa for next two and a half years.

He could have patiently carried on with his present Presidential term for a further two years, but the power hungry President, worried about his stakes in two years time, decided to manipulate his way through to out beat his astrological change, thinking his constitutional power of even ‘making a man a woman and woman a man’ will be in his favour to call the election.

Having gone to the extent of punishing the astrologers for making adverse predictions for him in the past, there is no one to teach the power intoxicated President some simple arithmetic, based on available statistics of presidential and legislature elections.

In 2005, Mahinda Rajapaksa secured a little over 50% of the popular vote against the main opposition rival Ranil Wickremesinghe. Turnout was put at 74% in the south and west, but almost no Tamils voted in some minority Tamil areas due to Tigers preventing them from voting, allegedly due to them being bribed by Mahinda Rajapaksa. He won his first presidential election in 2005 by just over a razor thin margin of 180,000 votes.

In 2010, Mahinda Rajapaksa secured re-election by a clear margin, winning around 58% of the vote; an estimated 74.5% of the electorate cast their ballots and the victory margin was over 1.8 million votes. The 2010 election was a significant one as the hyped up slogan of Mahinda was his drum beating claim of his decisive victory over the Tamil Tigers. As the constitutional Commander in Chief of the armed forces, he was challenged by his former Commander of the Army Gen Sarath Fonseka. Mahinda was able to gain the 8% vote from the opposition UNP vote bank in the election. His war victory did not give him the absolute margin of 75% – 90% despite the nationalist parties joining Mahinda to hard sell his war victory hysteria.  Mahinda was only able to increase the overall voter turnout by 676,574 i.e., 0.77% (under 1%).

The 2015 Presidential election will be a testing time for Mahinda. There will be multi-pronged impacts on the vote pattern this time. Hypothetically, if UNP vote bank is the average of the last two Presidential elections of 44.9%,  in the present declining political climate for Mahinda it is not difficult to predict the outcome at the election. Maithiripala Sirisena has to score a simple 5.1% to hit the 50% break-even point.

The established vote bank of the JHU was 550,000 in the 2005 parliamentary election. This will not be there for Mahinda this time. There is a possibility that JHU will increase their share of votes due to its wider focus on very serious national issues that made them to leave the government. The Chandrika Kumaratunga Bandaranaike factor is the lease of life for the opposition candidate. She too has a strong support base amongst the masses. Working on a minimum projection – it is not difficult for her to bring another 5% to her favourite opposition candidate. Popularity of Mahinda Rajapaksa amongst the Tamil vote bank is almost near zero and he has to rely on the unpopular Tamil paramilitary forces for some votes. Having been denigrated by the Mahinda camp on the issues affecting the Tamil people, TNA’s will be anti-Mahinda in the election, thus increasing the voting of Tamils for Maithiripala Sirisena.

Muslim vote is also significant in the election. Having been battered and bruised by the Mahinda Rajapaksa’s right wing anti-Muslim campaign, the Muslim masses are not in the pious mood to support him. Sri Lanka Muslim Congress and its allies have become irrelevant for the Muslim masses. Even if Mahinda promises hope from hell for the Muslims, they are unlikely to vote for him. The lame duck SLMC has to respond to the mood of the Muslims and will join force with the opposition to earn some credibility from the Muslim people.

With the fever pitch campaign following filing of nominations, the political and astrological turf for Mahinda unfortunately will not be friendly. With the amazement of wealth and arrogation of unlimited power, anything could happen if the election fails for Mahinda. There is a strong possibility that Sri Lanka will experience its first ever coup that will undermine the democratic will of the people. Mahinda & Co have fully prepared the contingencies and 8 January 2015 will be crucial for Sri Lanka to either swim out of troubles or to sink in the slumber.

    What a comedy show by the Rajasingham siblings.

    Now it is certitude defined by the sani-effect; a couple of months ago it was Merwyn Silva’s Govi verdict delivered via tuk-tuk voices. The other sibling is blessed with “ground realities” with ears pressed down on the ground, thanks to that special training at the Vet school!

    One sibling now chooses to pronounce as “power hungry President… with the amazement (amassing?!) of wealth and arrogation of unlimited power”, while the other is just waking up to the obvious “ President corrupts them and keeps files on their corruption. The Italian mafia could not have done better.”

    A far, far cry from their pandering just a year ago, and after three and a half years of blowing the bugle at the top of the parade for the same President, passing out their own (free-vacation souvenir?) hats for money collection among the Diaspora!

    Weren’t you guys warned of these many, many moons ago? But, in your arrogance, you were the wise ones who knew everything way better than everybody else.

    At the speed and energy with which the siblings have been sprinting away in the last half a year, it will be not surprising if we see the duo perform at next year’s Maveerar day celebs downtown London!

      Kumar R “What a comedy show ..”
      This artice is in fact an offer to Mhinda. Jeyadevan is indirectly saying that he can do a Maha pooja at his temple in Wembley to reduce the adverse power of the Saturn’s transition and pave the way for Mahinda to win the next election

      He is hoping that Mahinda read this and will contact him to arrange this Maha Pooja.

      Mahinda will of course offer Jeyadevan a onsideration in exchnage for this Maha Pooja, either financial or who knows even a place in his next cabinet?

      RE: Mahinda In Dire Straits

      Tamil Diaspora and TGF have idiots and stupids. Their average iQ is 79. Why?

      I will protect MR and family: Maithri

      https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UHR8ws1SQVg

      Why? They are as stupid as their Maveeran Velupillai Prabakaran, the greatest Wart Criminal and criminal.

      Mahinda Rajapaksa is still President.

      The international community could not do much for the Stupidity of the LTTE and the many Tamils who supported them.

      One needs to think strategically. When it comes to strategy, the Tamils because of their emotions become very very stupid. Maveeran VP became stupid and killed Rajiv Gandhi.

      Now the Stupid Tamil Diaspora , because of emotions, want to hang Rajapaksa, fat Chance.

      The best the Tamils can do is vote against Mahinda Rajapaksa, whom the Maveeran VP supported for money and bribes.

      What doe sit tell you.

      So Common sense says the Tamils should vote for Mr. Matriplas Sirisena, and he has the Ethics and decency to treat all citizens with respect, much better than MaRa of Medamulana.

    Mr Jayadevan is right.
    Rajapakses cant afford to lose elections. They will definitely stage a military coup. They are not bothered about possible international sanctions.

      brian,instead of a coup,he can just postpone the elections if he feels that he is going to lose can’t he?Why take the risk of a coup and international sanctions etc when he can continue to be in power for the next 2 years.Hasn’t everyone forgotten that it is a early election that he has called or have i missed something here.If i have please enlighten me.If he goes through the election then he is going to win it,albeit with a very low margin within 3%.If not he will call it off.

      I think people should look at all the pieces in the chess board before going into an euphoria.Look at all the pieces he can move.

              he can create violence so that an environment that is not conducive to an election is created,The Elections commissioner will have no option but to postpone the elections.

              mind you this is only if he thinks he is going to lose.If he can manage to scrape through he will go through it and welcome the pope.

              he certainly got caught with his pants down with the maithri candidacy.He expected karu or ranil or sobitha.It would have been easy for him then.Now he will carefully again look at the board and see what pieces he can move.If you think he is such a moron to have an early election which he is going to lose then you should have your head examined.

              If you see my forecast of the election result below in a comment you will see that jaffna,vanni,trinco and batti can be the decider.A few bombs going off in the vicinity of the polling booths will scare off the voters with a low turnout.

              he will also try hard to rig the votes.

              he will not sanction a coup because of the international ramifications,and anyway why should he when he has these other moves.Before the opposition gets into an euphoria they better plan how to counter those possible moves.As for a coup the opposition can let him do it and get into even deeper international waters that he already is in and drown.Give a man enough rope and he will hang himself they say.

                You see you have got your knickers in a twist and going round in circles desperately trying to extricate yourself.

                First you said

                brian,instead of a coup,he can just postpone the elections if he feels that he is going to lose can’t he.

                What you are suggesting from the above is that he has the freedom just to postpone if he feels like it.

                Now you have changed your mind and saying he has to create the environment and then call it off. My question was do you know if the Constitution has any provisions to call of the elections and what is the criteria.
                Why don’t you simply say that I hope he calls it off the odds are against him and you don’t to see your boss go.

                You really are an illiterate and the following confirms it.

                he will not sanction a coup because of the international ramifications,and anyway why should he when he has these other moves.

                What are the other moves unleash the thugs. Make your mind up idiot.

                  I don’t think there is any constitutional impediment to calling it off because it is a early election after all.However it is a humiliation for him so he will have to have an excuse.

                  Anyway why are you getting so worried about it and purging away?

                  I doubt this election will be postponed because he will think he is going to win this anyway.It was only as a plan B that i brought it up.How was i to know that their would be guys like you to whom i can explain it to but i can’t understand it for you too.

                  here’s a piece of advice.Don’t let your mind wander too much because it seems to be far too small to be out by itself.

                  The impression i get of you so far is that you are a person of rare intelligence.Its rare when you show any.

                  Are you so stupid or is today a special occasion.

                    Shankar

                    Your analytical power is zero and the level of intelligence is that of a toddler and here is why.

                    MR can call an election when he wants.
                    MR can postpone it if he feels he cant win. That means he is thinking of having an election and still in the process of deciding.
                    MR doesnt have to organise a coup ( because of the fear of foreign intervention but one wonders who)but simply create violence ( but there is already a high level of violence and he has openly stated that he has a file on everyone including Srisena) and order the commissioner to postpone the election.
                    There is no Constitutional impediment as the Constitution doesnt exist.
                    MR can order judges to deliver verdict to suit him.
                    The list goes on.

                    Shankar you illiterate you are MRs mouth piece and according to you MR can do what he wants , interpret the law as he wants , compile a file on every citizen except him and his family while they milk the Nation. Thretaen any one and every one and no one can question him.

                    But you must be disappointed that the Darling Hirunika ( who polled the highest votes ) who once called him her dad has turned her back on him. Why because she thinks he is a liability and a danger to civilsed standards.

                      already i can see signs of mahinda trying to postpone the elections.He is going around stating that he is the one who can even now abolish the presidency because he has the two thirds majority.

                      Now would he go around talking like this?He is keeping the door open for negotiations on this issue.Instead of using violence as an excuse to postpone it he can use this.He will try to get back the JHU.Their demands are reasonable,which is reducing the power of the presidency and i think limiting the number of cabinet ministers to 38.To do all this he will need time and the election could be postponed by 6 months.This is only if he feels he is going to lose.If he feels he can win he will go through with it.

                      Hope i have made myself clear now to you.Yu seem to be a guy who has to be spoon fed.If a banana is given to you you will ask for it to be peeled and given too.If you continue in this trajectory i’am afraid that your pomegranates will wither away and you will become a sex mad baboon that is chased into the mountains.

                Passa is cock sure of winning. his planning took place in Hindia and the first to be informed was the hindu by tweet. The planning is worked out on the history of south india where the stupid tamils the buro sihala and calculative muslims come from. That history is one of treachery where sanskrit and pali are used as a weapon to inform the other side of the deccan plateau that we are with you but doing our own thing. This is why he goes to kattidiya over there. Have you heard of astrologers winning lottery on regular basis -no
                Even more the recent article in the hindu where they say none of the protest in support of the fishermen had any effect but of journalist sharma a close friend of modi, rajapassa, swamy and that as soon as modi arrived from abroad the fist thing he did was phone paasa and thank him profusely.- the south block is in charge and wont change as it must get lanka the way it got sikkim nagaland. But then like sirima who gave away Diego to UK/US for security of lanka passa has kept the experience ltte for another day if the hindians decide to try capturing and enter the south. either way tamils are cannon fodder.
                If maithiri wins there are enough of colombo thugs still to take revenge without his guns- they have made bombs even before JT’s knew what a knife is- especially wanathamulla even from oranges.

        Shankar, you are very right. It will be a foolish move if any one thinks of a coup de’etat as UN, European Union, America,Canada and
        India for a certain extent,waiting to pounce on Sri Lanka if given
        a chance and if a coup takes place, there will be sanctions over sanctions and travel bans placed and SL cannot bear it as the
        Industrialists & businessmen of SL have their buyers and sellers in the above countries and economy will come to a standstill. China & Russia will not rush in,that fast to offer full assistance
        to Sri Lanka, in the event of a coup, so the better way, is to call off the election, if the tide changes against, under some pretext, twistable under the constitution and start opening the
        ‘files’ until the presidential term ends.

        The margin of victory could be very small but the incumbent president can win as all the govt machineries are under him and he is no Gadaffi or Horshni Mubaraq as he has hard core supporters
        too, in the South. The ruling party banked on the majority and ignored the minorities aiming for 100% Sinhala votes but never even dreamt that a second member from the majority race of the same ruling party, will contest and unfortunate for them, the minority votes will decide the presidency, this time. One thing is certain, that minority communities, Tamils & Muslims, including
        the up country Tamil voters, will not listen to their leaders for advice as to whom they should vote this time as they have a tale of woe to tell.

          Lanka watch

          In addition to what you have mentioned here there is another important reason why mahinda will not like a coup.How can he trust his brother to the extent that he will get his job back from him again.If a coup occurs then gota will be the man running the show.

          Also if gota gets sidelined by army officers who take control like what happened in burma,thailand,pakistan,egypt etc then both mahinda and gota will be up the gum tree after opening the pandora’s box.

          Coups are the worst nightmare of all democratically elected heads of state other than those in western countries.They must be tossing and turning in bed all the time because they have the ballot but the army has the bullet.So it is unlikely they will ever open the pandora’s box like that and encourage coups.

          Only thing is we don’t know whether the mad gota might ignore mahinda and go ahead with it.If so he will be the cause of the the train crash of the rajapakshes like what happened to VP.

          Anyway if mahinda is elected for the third time he and the country are speeding towards a train crash.His third term will be his worst nightmare.Fittingly he should be the one who tries to clean up his brothers and his mess and end up in a heart attack.

    “Mahinda In Dire Straits”

    Dire straits,my foot.Go back to 2010 and look again at the presidential elections to analyse his strengths and weaknesses.

    http://www.infolanka.com/news/election2010.htm

    let us forcast an attainable scenario for the opposition based on the results of the 2010 election.

    1.Assume that 100000 voters decide to switch from mahinda to maithripala in the colombo district,then maithri will win colombo by a majority of 120000 votes.

    2.If 100000 voters switch from mahinda to maithri in the gampaha district he will yet lose the district by 85000 votes.

    3.So the net effect after the cumulative results of colombo and gampaha is maithri leading by 35000 votes.

    4.Now take the other big district of kurunegala.If 75000 voters switch from mahinda to maithri,mahinda will still win that district 105000.

    5.So after the three big districts are polled mahinda will be leading by 70000 votes.

    6.Now take kandy district.If 60000 voters decide to switch from mahinda to maithri then maithri will win kandy by 45000 votes.

    7.So after the results in colombo,gampaha,kurunegala and kandy districts is added,mahinda will be leading by 25000 votes winning the gampaha and kurunegala districts and maithri winning colombo and kandy.

    8.now take kalutara,galle and ratnapura which are medium size districts and assume a switch of 50000 voters from mahinda to maithri in each district then mahinda will still win kalutara by 80000,galle by 75000 and ratnapura by 75000 votes,making a total of approx 225000 votes.

    9.So after the seven largest districts colombo,gampaha,kurunegala,kandy and kalutara,galle,ratnapura counting over mahinda would be leading with 300000 votes with maithri only winning colombo and kandy.

    10.Now take the small medium districts like kegalle,matara,anuradhapura and badulla and assuming a switch of 40000 votes from mahinda to maitri,then kegalle,matara and anurathapura will be won by mahinda by 40000,70000 and 75000 votes while maithri will win badulla by 40000,giving a net total majority to mahinda from these 4 districts of approximately 150000 votes.

    11.So after the largest 11 districts are counted mahinda will be leading by 450000 votes with maithri winning colombo,kandy and badulla.

    12.The balance 11 districts are small ones with some smaller than the others.If we take the largest of them puttalam,hambantota,nuwaraeliya and digamadulla and assume a switch of 25000 from mahinda to maithri,then mahinda will win puttalam by about 15000,hambantota by 70000 while maithri will win nuwara eliya by 80000 and digamadulla by 55000 and giving him a net effect of 50000 from these 4 districts.

    13.If you substract this 50000 votes for maithri from the cumulative 450000 votes for mahinda so far as in point 11, mahinda will be leading maithri by 400000 votes after 15 districts of the 22 are counted,with maithri winning only colombo,kandy,badulla,nuwar eliya and digamadulla.

    14.Now let us take matale and moneragala.Assuming a switch of 20000 votes,mahinda would yet win matale by 20000 and moneragala by 50000.

    15.So the grand total at this stage for mahinda after the count of 17 out of 22 districts would be 450000 majority.

    16.now to pollonnaruwa where maithri comes from.Will the home crowd vote for the local fella or mahinda?I probably would think the local.

    17.normally i would have given a swing of 15000 votes from mahinda to maithri,but because this is the local fella probably it would double to 30000,but yet mahinda should win by a majority of 10000.Too difficult to call any way and i put my hands in the air and say ? here.

    18.Now coming to the balance 4 districts which are tamil majority batticaloa,trinco,jaffna and vanni.Can they give 450000 votes to maithri more than mahinda to clinch the election for him.Assuming that mahinda has become so unpopular that maybe i have overestimated the 450000 in the first place,let us make it 400000 and see.Jayadevan,you should be able to do this better than me.See whether 400000 votes from these 4 districts can erase the 400000 majority of mahinda from the other 18 districts and make this a cliffhanger election.

    Dire straits indeed ha.Mate,this is going to go to the wire i think.

        Sach

        sinhalese have short memories.If it happened in the last 3 months maybe it could have an impact.Gampaha district is a key electorate because it is as large as colombo district.Whoever has more votes when you add the both districts will be the winner all island.
        my analysis shows maithri with a slim majority of 35000 after adding both.35000 is so small when you have each district with one and a quarter million voters it points to a very close election.

        I always felt that gampaha district will decide this election.It is a SLFP stronghold and ranil or karu would have fared dismally at the election.In earlier comments before the appointment of maithri i have always maintained that the best candidate would be CBK or her proxy because of this district.It mirrors the mix of rural and urban of many other districts in the country and we know that the rural is much more than the urban and it is the villages who will decide the winner.So what happens in gampaha will cascade towards other districts too and the same pattern will emerge all over the country.I’am wondering whether CBK has enough clout there to get more than the 100000 i forecast to switch sides because after the initial 8 defections nobody else has crossed over.

        After 10 years of leaving politics completely people may have forgotten her.Sinhalese have short memories they say.

        At the moment i will stick with the 100000 switch until i find some reason for changing it.As the days progress i may also make changes to the forecast because forecasts also should be like running budgets that are changed due to changes in assumptions.

          says ¬i have always maintained that the best candidate would be CBK or her proxy because of this district.¬

          you have studied the land mass and 2 districts pretty well. But remember its catholic to a great extent (mentioned because this is of the present division created)
          So she seduced Vije K and continued the dynasty and kept on doodling. Those relatives at Gampaha were sent to the west entered labour party politics with her influence and after 10years when being exposed by Anglo Saxons they slipped away. therefore like passas’s army they will be there to say i am not british (in the UK they say I am British) because they have to make the platform for their offspring.;)

          Will she end up like Benezir if she tries too show off how clean she is??

      See my seperate comment below, as the founder memebr of the “Non Resident Sri Lakan Tamils” he can deliver their block votes to either Mahinda or Maithiri. Jeyadevn holds the balance of power, not even TNA.

      I am not sure what Jeyadevan’s rasi is, may be the Sani/Saturn transition is bad for Mahinda and good for our self proclaimed leader of the Non Residnet Tamils of Sri Lanka.

        Could you please repeat that song about Dosa and vadi sambhar. Perhaps the author plans to feed the majority with it and obtain the cross vote.

            When they say Mahinda crowd should say Mithri.

            Folk should come out with solutions than create psycho fear of Goota would do this and that.

                    And in a Sinhala dikka means small and Godda means a lot
                    Saambar is also a food item and so is sambol
                    So why is CT editing this out

    Will Ranil deliver Jayadevan’s hypotheticl UNP vote bank of 44.6 % to Sand Sira’s Brother?..

    If Rail has 44.6 % under his belt, why did he have to outsource the CC job?.

    Even if Jayadevan’s Vellala mates are around 6 %, wouldn’t that thump the Mahinda Chinthana Boss hands down …

    Ranil is obviously smarter than Rajendrans..

    Even Vellala Sambandan is having second thoughts, after Ranil’s cousin and his ex Servant hijacked the UNP, TNA, Diaspora Alliance, which came out firing on all cylinders after Ranil stitched up a deal with GTF Suren, through UNP dudes in London…

    Gota has already drafted a plan with Kapila Hendevitharana ( Head of National Intelligence), Prasad Samarasinghe and few others to take some of the targets in fear of defeat. As we all know, all because of the power hunger and enormous power that he enjoyed under his brother and in fear of getting in to the jail due to all illegal & undemocratic decisions taken to hares innocent people of this country including the media.”

    I have being saying this since MARA stained his hands with blood in Aluthgama and Beruwela besides his so many other atrocities that the Power above us all will take care of him soon.
    That is exactly what is happening and he is been blinded by none other than HIM (The Almighty).No astrologer or soothsayer can save him now. It is retribution time from above that’s all . There were so many raised hands of MARA’S victims towards the sky for help and now it is pay back time for MARA who thought he is untouchable.
    Unbelievable, believe it.

    I amazed that in this 21st century there are people in high places believing in astrology, especially the one based on the planets and the earth’s calendar. Every year on earth is the same, but the other planets are scattered all over the place, with the repetition every thousand years or more. Also, if a prediction could be changed by a payment, it is most certainly a scam. The dire situation in Sri Lanka is that the numbers show a close call in the Presidential election but the thugs will not let go of power that easily should they lose. If they win, we would be facing sanctions initiated by the UNHCR, which never harms the rich but the innocent poor, who had nothing to do with the alleged War Crimes, suffer.

    A scenario to ponder

    In the (unlikely as it seems now) event that Mahinda Rajapakse wins the Election and becomes President elect for he third time can he delay taking the oath and thus prolong his Presidency for longer than 6 years.
    Under the Constitution he has to take his oath 14 days after the results are announced and the 6 years start from the date of the oath.
    The 14 days is slap bang at the time of the Popes visit. (an excuse)
    With the connivance of the Cheap Justice and a spurious opinion of the Supreme Court, can he delay taking the oath at say end of 2015 and thus serve as President longer than 6 years. – with MR anything is possible to serve his interest.

    Would be interested to hear views.

      To again highlight my comment above.
      The Sunday Island in its editorial says the following:

      (We repeat what we said last week that there must be a clear statement before the election on whether President Rajapaksa, if re-elected, will take his oaths for his new term immediately thereafter and that term would end six years later. We say this because this is a grey area. The country never had a clear explanation of why President Chandrika Kumaratunga took her oaths twice after re-election. There is speculation on the possibility that Rajapaksa will take his oaths for his new term only after his current term ends two years down the road. If this is the case, it is totally unacceptable. The president is empowered by the constitution to call a premature election and he would presumably do so if he judges that the electoral situation is propitious for his re-election at that particular point of time. If he loses, obviously he must step down right away. There is no question of his claiming that he would do so once his previous term has run out and making such an attempt will surely unleash anarchy on the streets. But if he wins, saying his new term will commence only after the previous term has ended would be a case of buttering his bread on both sides. The people are entitled to know what the actual situation is before the forthcoming election and no Supreme Court opinion on that subject, hidden as happened in the recent referral or otherwise, will be acceptable. Sadly, the credibility of the country’s highest court has from the time of the impeachment of the previous chief justice, been seriously eroded.)

      I have grave suspicions that Rajapakse will resort to a foul agenda should he win the Elections with the connivance of the Cheap Justice

    “For those who believe in astrological predictions, the major Saturn change on 2 November 2014 for his Aeris Raasi is definitely not helpful for him. According to general predictions- Overview:

    ‘Sani Bhagawan is moving from the 7th house to the 8th house. You are coming out of Kandaka Sani but entering onto the worst part of Asthama Sani. Right now things are bad, but going forward it will become worse and terrible. You may expect to have problems in each and every aspect of your life. The intensity of the problems will be extreme from Dec 2014 to July 2015. You will have good relief when Jupiter is moving onto your Poorva Punya Sthanam by July 2015. Overall, you cannot expect any good results from Saturn, but other transiting planets can help you. Avoid doing any kind of investments for the next 3 years. Even though Jupiter is in your favourable spot for one year, you need to take my predictions to make sure you are prepared for the worst and hope for the best. Otherwise you do not need to continue reading my predictions from this point ( KT Astrologer – Network Bandwidth Monitor).

    Detailed predictions do not give any hope for Mahinda Rajapaksa for next two and a half years.” You wrote above

    Just Because Mahinda’s Natal Moon Sign/Rasi is Aries, does not mean that mere ingress of Saturn to Scorpio [8th house from Radical Moon Nov 2, 14- Jan 27,17]is going to trigger his downfall

    Vedic Astrology never permits us to predict anything going by just one indicator/factor.

    A competent astrologer would cast a chart [not one but at least 16 for one individual] using CORRECT Date, Time and Place of Birth.

    He would then examine the Running Dasas/Planetary Periods first, Applicable Power Yogas second, AshtakaVargas/Directional Strength of planets third, Solar Return/Varshapal Chart fourth and then examine the time-tested vital Double Transit of Jupiter and Saturn

    KN Rao the most distinguished living astrologer, author and guide of over 45 published works/researches at the Bharathiya Vidya Bawan in Delhi gives so much weight to this DT of Jup-Sat that he chose to produce a one-of-a-kind book on it titled Ups and Downs in Career

    Thondamannaru,

    Clarifying your point on “who will save ISIS etc”.

    No one can save anyone when it comes to retribution from above. I do not anyway subscribe to the ideas of ISIS, Taleban or any other armed groups killing innocent civilians, whether they be Muslims or Non Muslims in the name of Islam.

    There is nothing Islamic about their cause, they are also as bad as VP,MR and the gang, who think they can achieve their objectives by killing unarmed civilians. That will never happen and that is why they are all doomed to fail, including the Islamic fanatic groups you have mentioned.

    As stated by another commentor as well,kindly do not associate the majority of peace loving and moderate Muslims with the fanatics and paint a gloomy picture of Islam. Just look at the world population of Muslims of 2 Billion and compare them with the groups, it will not be even 1 percent.

    Pause for a moment and think about it.

    According to Chinese astrology President Mahinda Rajapakse is Wood Rooster. Having aligned and blessed by China he is on the high heals to walk through the Presidential election in January 2015. The Chinese factor is an important one as China has given all the strength to him including under water warships reaching the seas of Sri Lanka without the detection of India or America. Here are my general forecast for my great Mahinda:

    The Year 2014 of the Wood Horse will be filled with opportunities for the ambitious Rooster. Horse Years reward those who are honest, forthright and diligent. Happily, the Rooster embodies all of these qualities. 2014 promises to be extremely busy, which should be welcome news for this dutiful sign. Many Roosters may decide to upgrade their computers, smartphones and vehicles this year as a means to fulfill their responsibilities in a quick, efficient manner.

    Prepare for all the changes and energy you’ll face in your own life this year with a personalized 9-Star Ki Forecast.

    2014 won’t be all smooth sailing, however. Because this year is ruled by the Wood Element, the Rooster may feel slightly persecuted. Wood Years encourage people to branch out, take risks and be flexible. This is difficult for the focused Rooster, which prefers to strive for perfection.

    Instead of being praised for their high standards, the Rooster could be mocked for its rigidity. Smart members of this sign will learn to loosen up this year.

    Horse Years also place great emphasis on modesty, compassion and kindness. Therefore, the proud Rooster will feel pressured to temper its ego a bit. Instead of seeking the spotlight, this sign would do better to act as a supporting player throughout 2014. This will be counterintuitive, but Roosters who insist on taking center stage will be in for a rude awakening.

    As far as health is concerned, respiratory issues could surface for the Rooster. This sign would be wise to invest in an air filter and humidifier. Staying away from pollutants and using natural products instead of harsh chemicals can also prove helpful in the Year of the Wood Horse.

    Roosters in committed relationships should yield to their partner in 2014. The Year of the Wood Horse places tremendous emphasis on equality. The Rooster has a tendency to take the lead in all matters, particularly romance. Unless this sign learns to defer to their beloved, it could be abandoned. Horse Years often involve stiff competition, especially on the romantic front. If the Rooster doesn’t want to lose its partner to a more attentive, giving rival, it should strive for a more equal partnership.

    Single Roosters could find love through friends and relatives. Being set up on blind dates could prove very successful for this sign. Their naturally brash behavior may not make a good first impression in the Year of the Wood Horse. Therefore, it will be helpful to have someone vouch for their character before going on a date. Roosters that learn to listen more than they speak can be successful in love this year.

    Job opportunities will abound for Roosters in the Year of the Wood Horse. This sign’s intelligence, organization and honesty will help it go far in 2014. This is an ideal time for the Rooster to land a high-paying job, raise or promotion. A power struggle could break out during this competitive year, which the Rooster could win easily. The important thing for this sign to remember is to cultivate and maintain friendships in the workplace. This is not a good year to make enemies. If the Rooster saves more than it spends in 2014, they’ll flourish in the Year of the Wood Horse.

    Unemployed Roosters can find work through social networking. During the Year of the Wood Horse, it pays to join clubs and professional organization. Volunteering at a charitable organization or serving as an intern can lead to a salaried job. The Rooster shouldn’t let pride get in the way of making inroads to their dream career.
