“ASTROLOGY MUST be understood fully before making any predictions. Every person, including me, has a curiosity to learn about the future. This curiosity must be solved only through proper channel. India has rich astrological heritage. Astrological societies must spread this science among masses.”

State Governor Dr Balram Jakhar expressed these views at the closing ceremony of the 5th Vishwa Jyotish Karmkand Evam Vaastu Maha Sammelan organised by All-India Falaudi Astrological Research Society, Kota, at Ravindra Natya Grah today. Society founding president Ajay Gupta delivered the welcome address.

He mentioned that the Society had been working for 17 years and added that such conferences gave an opportunity to gain knowledge and establish new chapters. Gupta said that around 500 astrologers shared their views during the three-day conference.

The public took benefit of free counselling by senior astrologers from across the country. The young astrologers were provided with material for their research.

Dr Balram Jakhar felicitated Bankatlal Gupta, Rajesh Gupta, Manish Shah, Kishanlal Airen, Om Jhanwar, Kamal, Manju Porwal, Vikram Bhavsar, Ram Gopal Sharma, Pradeep Joshi, Sadhna Jain, Atmaram, Prem Kumar Goswami, Sudhindra Gaud, Shama Sisodiya and Ram Chandra Sharma at the programme.

Pradeep Joshi, Ramesh Pandey, Deepak Gaud, Satish Gupta and Om Jhanwar welcomed Dr Balram Jakhar. Ajay Gupta presented shawl and memento to the Governor and proposed the vote of thanks. The programme concluded with National Anthem.
