Kowtowing to Mangal - "Mahima Mangal ki"



My friend has recently been diagnosed as suffering with manglik dosh. For the uninitiated reader, manglik dosh is a concoction of planets in your horoscope that can have catastrophic effects on your future (married) life if not rectified or cured through a series of ceremonies conducted by a learned pundit. And then your choice of eligible partners is also greatly reduced as this condition warrants that your partner is also a manglik.

Of such paramount importance does the manglik dosh become that all your other important personality traits like character, education, morals & beliefs take a back seat. The day its out in public knowledge that you are a manglik, people would shun you as if you have caught swine flu.:-) Believe me for a young person of marriageable age in India there is no worse malaise than being a manglik.

Strangely the deleterious effect of mangal is only to fell upon the spouse and not on your blood relations like your parents & siblings and even your friends.
I am sure if there is any intelligent form of life on Mars, they would be equally wary of the effect planet earth has on them and they would have a name to this, guess what, pritwik dosh. ;-)

As you would have observed, i find all this very amusing and humorous and would not care a damn about the manglik dosh, the business of horoscope or the pseudosciences of numerology, astrology etc as they stand on no scientific ground or the test of reason. And I am sure that it would be so with the majority as time passes by. :-)

Hi Sneha!

I really appreciate your views! I am not very sure whether Astrology is true or baseless... but all I can say is it is useless to bother about such things. Even I don't give a damn to it.

Most astrologers survive because of people's fear about future and not having trust in themselves/God/love :-)

Have a good day!

some are hardcore believer and some does it for timePass . sad thing abt manglik is the spouse suffers. sad. My BF is pure double manglik :|

I diagnose your friend and found him lack of confidence as well as a non-believer or less believer in God.
;)
Tell your friend to ask the so called astrologer to write all such predictions in writing without if and but. And check all such predictions time-to-time to see all going false/true.
