degrees is aspected by Saturn retrograde
and Stationary at 10.52 degrees from the
7th house Scorpio. Prishtoday Lagna and
Prishtodayo planet who is Retrograde and
Stationary aspecting the Lagna is most
malefic and shows the event crystal clear. It
is also showing some split in Relationship.

and Ketu in the 11th house is volatile
combination. Shows opponent( Female IAS
Batchmate) refused some proposal offered
From the chart of 16th March 2015 10-34 hrs.,
it is crystal clear of the facts written above. The
Chart is Below.
• 11.15 AM he reaches home and gave 44 calls
to his Lady batchmate and last message at
11.35 hrs. Time is used 11.23 AM as per
Mook Prashna since only then it will be a
query and time related to Jeeva Query and
the last stage of Chinta, when Ravi opened
his mind to his Female Batchmate.
• 4.30 PM Kusuma calls driver to ask about
Ravis whereabouts and failing to reach him.
• 6-00 PM Kusuma and her father reach
home and discover Ravi dead and hanging
from a celling fan.
In Prashna Jyotish and Mook Prashna the
results obtained by the time of clues lead
to the exact reasons for the occurence. Here
the most important Parameters are the last
contact of Ravi Kumar, contact with the Lady
batchmate on 16th March 2015 11.35 am from
his residence and then
his wife discovering
that he was hanging
by a celling fan in
his bedroom. The
Chart therefore of
18-00 hrs. become
most important to
give clues of the
happenings since the
matter is of death.
Taking the chart of the time of the last message
sent to her Batch mate at 11.30 hrs.Taking
11.23 am since this time was most crucial as
per Mook Prashna and explained above.
Day is Monday and the Lord is Moon.
Tithi KP-11. Yoga Parigha Inauspicious and Lord is Saturn. Karan Bava.
Special Parameters for the analysis of Death for
• Saturn Stationary from 10th March 2015
and Retrograde only 2 days before at
10.34 Hrs. Saturn aspecting the Lagna at
Lagna degrees from the 7th house dreadful
• Sun changed sign from the 10th house to
11th house in Pisces and with Rahu-Ketu
on 15th March 2015.
• Eclipse on 20th March 2015.
• Rahu in forward motion till 14th March
• Monday and KP-11 is Dagdha yoga from
the above it is clear that these parameters
will also be responsible for adversity in the
• Mars and Venus Combination till 12th
March 2015. As per Horasara the person for
whom this query will be raised will be rash,
under the influence of his wife or someone
of opposite sex, since they are also Lagna
Lord and 7th Lord, this combination makes
the sex life unsatisfactory. Mars represents
the urge of erotic passions in a female and
Venus is responsible for the lust in a male,
since they have separated, it is clear that
the relationship got split on 12th March
2015 due to some proposal made by Ravi
Kumar and differences in opinion. They are
in 2/12 axis.
Chart of 11.23 hrs taken, Reason is after 11.28
hrs the navamsha changes and then the query
will not pertain to Jeeva and Human being.
From 11.18 to 11.28 hrs is query pertaining to
human being. In Mook Prashna a Blind Query
for a Jeeva Query a human being for even Lagna
the navamsha has to be in 1, 4 or 7th. As Per the
Time of 11.18 hrs. to 11.28 hrs. the Navamsha
is of the 7th satisfying the query for a human
being and a Jeeva query and the last stage of
the chinta. This time is most crucial for Mr. Ravi
Kumar opening his mind with the female batch
mate since Saturn in the 7th house is stationary
and Retrograde. Saturn aspecting the Lagna is
indicative of query pertaining to an old man
/ Lady. Since the 7th sign is female and Lord
Mars is placed in the female sign, it represents
a female, since Saturn is placed in the 7th house
the query is pertaining to a women of lower
caste. It is also indicative that since in the Chart
Venus and Mars Lagna Lord and 7th Lord have
been separated on 12th March 2015, there
was difference in opinion between the two.
They were both also in Rahu-Ketu axis and an
unconventional relationship expected by the
native which ended up in a break between Ravi
Kumar since this combination in the 11th house
is a volatile one. Saturn is also representing
that the query is pertaining to some enemies.
Saturn is the yogakaraka for this chart which
shows that the natives image was stimulated
till Saturn was in Libra till 5th Nov. 2014, but
now not able to perform due to ememies who
are a constant threat on his life.
As per Mook Prashna the Lagna nakshatra
is Rohini, as per Prashna Marg the query is
pertaining to his Karma and performance.
Moon is in Uttarashadha Nakshatra and Sun
has just entered the Sign of Pisces and also in
Rahu-Ketu axis on the 15th March 2015. Sun
is representd by a King in his field and Sun
with Rahu-Ketu and Mars could be a Volatile
combination and King of some high organised
group in his field as well.
Yama consideration at this time, the day lord
is placed in the 2nd Yama of Gemini and Lord
is Mercury and placed in the 10th house as
a planet in kendra with minimum degrees,
Mercury and hence since Mercury in Rahu
nakshatra he is not able to perform. He treated
his batch mate as a perceptor.
Modern Principles : Lagna has aspect of
Saturn and Moon is Placed in the 9th house
and its Nakshatra is placed in the 11th house
in Rahu-Ketu axis. The Native is not able to
Lagna Lord and Tajik Relationship : Lagna
Lord Venus and Moon have Poorna ithasala.
Moon also has ithasala with Saturn retrograde Mercury, Lagna Lord placed in the 12th house
and ithasla with Moon shows the current event,
together with Saturn.
Rahu is in the nakshatra of Moon and Ketu
in the nakshatra of Saturn are not conducive
to give good results specially when Saturn is
As per Media Reports the native reached home
and he gave 4 calls to the female batchmate, at
that time the Lagna was also Taurus in the 4th
navamsha and aspected by Saturn at almost
same degrees of the Lagna. Hence The Basic
Chinta was life threatining, because of Saturn
and also aspected by Gullika Navamsha Lord
Jupiter. Between 11.18 to 11.28 he expressed
his mind at 11.23 hrs. and was refuted.
Yama Explanation : Yama Moon in Gemini
and Query Moon in Capricorn are in 6/8 axis
and crystal clear that whatever he expressed
was not acceptable to the Batch mate and
adverse for him., In such cases there is failure
of Prashna, Mercury is placed in the Rahu
nakshatra and as per Prashna Marg and
Krishneeyam this is not supposed to give
benefic results, specially when Rahu is placed in
the 5th house of thought process, gets afflicted
and other constraints. Saturn is also Karaka for
enemies, adversities and threats. The famale
batch mate may have told him if he does not
mend his way, she may register an FIR against
him. Since Sun has just ingressed in the 11th
house. ( Volatile combination of Sun, Ketu and
Mars). He made 4 calls to the female batch
mate who was friendly with him regarding this
chinta and a constant emotional Stress.
Uday Lagna is Taurus, Arudha Lagna is Pisces
and Chaitra Rashi is Cancer. The present from
Taurus, Past from Arudha Lagna Pisces and
Future from Cancer sign. The Cancer sign has
Gullika and Jupiter at same degrees and Lord
of Gullika is Moon aspecting both shows the
future of the native is deadly, specially when
the Cancer sign is rising in the navamsha is
crystal clear of the event. Lagna is Taurus a
Prishtodaya sign and aspected by a stationary
and Retrograde Prishtodaya planet Saturn from
the 7th house. Lagna is also in the nakshatra of
Rohini whose lord is Moon and Gullika Lord.
The case is crystal clear of some complications
of self immolation, since Saturn is Karaka for
Longevity as well. Saturn is placed in the 7th
house. The Native was under constant thought
ever since Saturn ingressed in Scorpio on the
5th Nov. 2014. In Oct. 2014 also his Job was
changed. There was a constant fear also in his
mind regarding his profession of raiding the
Big Guns. Saturn is also enemy in the 7th house
and a dreaded enemy.
Now taking the chart of 18.22 hrs till 18-34 hrs
is for Virgo 1st Navamsha, when he was found
hanging with a ceilng fan.This time the query
is for a Jeeva and a Human being. This time is
given by Wikipedia as 18.30 hrs. Chart is below.
Chathuri Sundari as Per Krishnaeeyam
supplements that Rahu in Lagna and Mars
in the 7th house, Person dies due to fear of
weapons. Hence there is every possibility that
he had an unnecessary fear that the Lady Batch
mate may take his life.
When a person dies in his bedroom then Chaitra
Rashi has a planet in own sign or exalted planet
then he dies before the King. In order to find
this we have to reach time of death. Sun Rise
06.29 Hrs. and Sun Set 18.26 hrs The death has
been discovered at the time of Din Ratri Sandhi
and Sun acquires a special dimension, specially
when Sun has just changed sign to Pisces and
joining Rahu-Ketu axis. Another Parameter is
that at 16.30 hrs. Kusuma called and there was
no reponse, hinted that feath may have already
taken place. Hence feath in all probablities has
taken place between
15.26 hrs to 16.30 hrs.
In fact we can see
it for ourselves that
the death may have
taken place in the
4th Yama as per time
mentioned above, In such a case Moon the day Lord will be in
the Yama of Virgo and the sign is in Rahu-
Ketu axis and aspected by Mars, 8th Lord is
a crystal case of the event. Hence death has
taken place in a span of 3 hrs. and upto time
of Sunset hence between 15.26hrs to 18.26 hrs
and precisely between 15.26 to 16.30 hrs. as
per Prashna Marg. The time of death should
be ascertained on the basis of Prashna. The
position of Saturn, Jupiter, Sun and Moon are
• Saturn should be connected to Gullika
• Jupiter in Lagna Navamsha Rashi 3. Sun in
Arudha Rashi, Moon connection to Gullika
As per the above the Lagna turns out to be
Cancer 18.03 degrees a Prishtodaya sign
having Gullika at Lagna degrees.
The Lagna Lord is Moon and Gullika Lord
is placed in the 7th house influenced by
Saturn. Stationary Retrograde Karaka for self
immolation. Now Uday Lagna and Arudha
Lagna is Cancer. Sun's in Navamsha is also in
the.rudha Lagna. All the above principles are
satisfied. Chaitra rashi is Cancer and aspected
by own Lord Moon hence death in own house.
Hence from the above it is evident that the
native died, When the 6th navamsha rose at
15.22 to 15.27 hrs.
Taking the chart of 15.27 hrs. of 16th March
2015 above.This chart totally satisfies the
conditions at death by Prashna Marg. As per
the time calculated for death 15.27 hrs. chart
above, Mercury is placed in the 8th house and
8th Lord is Saturn a malefic and Stationary and
Karaka for longevity is also aspecting Moon in
the 7th house who is also Gullika Lord. Mercury
is also in the nakshatra of Rahu who is placed
in the 5th house of thought process. The chart
of 15.27 also shows combinations of death.
• Yama considerations as explained above.
• Moon in the Kendra and aspected by
Malefic and 8th lord Saturn.
• Saturn and Mercury have poorna ithasala
and a malefic one,see the degrees are
same. Saturn's connection with Mercury
Cause of Death As per Dreshkan
• Lagna in the
influenced by a
• Aristic and
• Sarpa and Krura.
• Serpent coiled
around her body.
• Body appearance like a Turtle or fat pot
body having sign of a snake.
• Fond of places of pleasure.
• Golden complexion, Good looks enjoying
others' wealth. The reason is evident and
purely died due to suicide.
Detail of Influence of the person on
• Caste By the Lagna Lord : Moon hence
a Vaish, since at the time of event it was
Virgo sign, hence either a Vaish or Shudra.
• As per shatpanchasika the person
influencing is assessed from the Navamsha
Lord rising in Lagna, since an odd sign it is
• Age is determined by the strongest planet
or the 7th lord Saturn is very strong since
stationary, It could be a Servant also, lean
man over 70 years. As per position of Sun
the age could be 25 years, as per Jupiter
it age is over 30 years, which is most
likely. Clothes worn Since Jupiter more
