CHALLENGE AWARD* BY THE AUTHOR FOR
Rs.10,00,000 for the Fortune-Teller
who would prove that Stars and Planets affect life of an Individual.
People make disastrous decisions in their life...just because of their blind faith in misleading superstitions - the belief that Star and Planet Gods affect life of an individual is one of the most popular of such superstitions!
Rakesh Anand (author) himself had very keen interest in fortune-telling systems and was, obviously, exploited by the fortune-tellers not only in India but also in USA. Sadly, he made some disastrous decisions in life because of his faith in astrology...but that still didn't undermine his belief until he himself researched and tested the validity of astrology.
Anand prepared 33 horoscopes - 9 out of the people he knew personally and 24 of famous / infamous people: Arnold Schwarzenegger, Amitabh Bachchan, Ajay Devgan, Bill Gates, late Benazir Bhutto, Britney Spears, Prince Charles, Farooq Abdullah, George Bush, late Harold Shipman, Imran Khan,Jayandra Saraswati, Leonardo DiCaprio, Madonna, M. Night Shyamalan, Priyanka Gandhi, Rahul Gandhi, Rahul Dravid, Sachin Tendulkar, Sathya Sai Baba, Salman Rushdie, Shilpa Shetty, late Timmothy Mcveigh and Prince William.
Astrologers practicing in Jammu, Jalandhar, Ludhiana, Kurukshetra, Delhi, Gokul and Mathura were consulted for interpretation of these horoscopes. Overall, 101 readings were obtained but it was ultimately proved that Stars and Planets do not affect life of an individual at all!
