Acharya Indu Prakash Misra explains astrology, the predictable science
Having an illustrious record both on and off the field, astrologer Acharya Indu Prakash Misra, a denizen of Gurgaon, talks to Neeraj Radhakrishnan about astrology and how the masses are using this age-old science.

ASTROLOGY HAS been a part of the Indian tradition for civilisations. However, with changing lifestyles, people are slowly disconnecting themselves with this predictive science.

We caught up with Acharya Indu Prakash Misra, who has taken path breaking steps in astrology in the subcontinent. He elucidates about the common misconceptions people have about astrology. Acharya Misra’s show is telecasted live on a popular Indian news channel every morning, and his feats have also been covered by the Asian edition of the Wall Street Journal.

Please share your experience based on your stay in Gurgaon.

I have been a resident of Gurgaon for the last three years. According to me, owing to Gurgaon’s rich history and culture, there is absolutely no other place than this city. What makes me say so is because Gurgaon has got a certain class of people in abundance. For example, you have got a plethora of graduates from top notch institutes such as IITs, IIMs and Harvard, which result in qualitative exchange of vision and ideas.

When my kids notice me interacting with such learned people, it will gradually inspire them and will aspire them to be like them.

What is your forecast about Gurgaon in terms of its growth?

Although Gurgaon maybe flourishing with entrepreneurs, big corporate houses, the forecast remains incomplete as long as the government is inactive. The pressing problem for the city has always been the bad infrastructure. However, I have come in terms with it. For this, I will cite one simple example. If my mother has got some shortcomings, I will not go on constantly criticising her. For me, she will still be my mother and I will accept her.

The citizens of this city should also treat Gurgaon likewise and rather be a solution for the problem.

Gurgaon has always been a suburb of Delhi. Do you think if Gurgaon gains its individual recognition it has the ability to flourish more?

This is a mind-set of the people. In actuality, Gurgaon’s growth rate is incomparable.

People who approach you are from all strata of society. Yet, there are people who do not believe in astrology. How do you see such a scenario, when there is a contradiction in belief?

It all depends upon ones attitude. I have come across people, personally, who used to debate with me for hours together but used to go back home having acquired some knowledge about astrology and have also testified to its authenticity. Astrology is the only science, which can be predicted.

However, there are also people who come with the attitude that astrology dilutes the flavour of life. As in, if they come to know of the future, their lives will be bland. But these same set of people also once in a while look at their astrological predictions through any medium - be it on the internet or newspaper.

Do businessmen/entrepreneurs also approach you? What kind of help do they seek?

Yes, people from all walks of life seek astrological help. Businessmen basically come for business related help like what would be the best time to start a project, et al. Many of them also seek personal guidance and astrology has helped to a great extent to overcome their problems.
