Q: Our house has doors in a straight line. Is this a vaastu defect? —Kritika Aneja, Tarun Enclave
A: It is a vaastu defect, but only to an extent. Wherever there are doors in a straight line, with the entrance and other doors leading directly to the last exit door, it represents that the money inflow and outflow is the same. Wealth does not stay in such a house.
Q: I have a flat with a balcony in the south-east. I got it covered recently. We now have to build an overhead water tank. Is south-east a suitable direction for this? —Manoj Malik, Civil Lines
A: A water tank should be in the south, south-west or in the west direction. If you place a water tank in the south-east, it will be a vaastu defect. However, if you still choose to have a water tank in this direction, put two silver bricks of 60 gram each in the tank.
Q: My house is situated before a T-point. I have been living in this house since the last two years and there has been some problem or the other. Please suggest a way out. —Joginder Nagar
A: It seems that your house is either south or west facing. You must consult a professional vaastu expert. Change the direction of the entrance, if possible.
Q: I have an open space in the north direction of my house. Is this a vaastu defect? — Kuldeep Sandilya
A: North should be open and airy, but it should never be raised. Make the north-east side of of your house levelled, if possible. You may also consider raising the south-west part of the house. The south-west should be a bit higher than the north-east.
