My Tryst With Astrology

I have been interested into astrology after my 10th when i had lots of leisure time between board exams and their declaration.May be my this interest is due to Banaras,the holy city being my place of birth,and this city continues to fascinate me more than any other place.

Initially i myself was not sure whether how much accurate the predictions are or whether they are connected to one's destiny at all.However,i followed my this hobby as i had ample time then.Gradually i came across various classic texts and enriched my knoweledge.

The real launch took place when i entered at ISM,with astrology being my only saviour during the dreaded ragging period.With a little heasitation i started mentioning astrology as my hobby during the mandatory 'intro' ,it was an instant hit and i was popular within days as the "first year jo kundali dekhta hai",with some final year seniors being on my fan list(that's quite
an achievement during ragging period).

one day a senior called me and said that whatever i had said about him was true to every word and it was a pleasant surprise for me,as i myself had not tested my predictions till then and here i had someone testifying for 100% accuracy.Gradually, the number of such persons increased and i was known more for my astro skills rahter than anything else.Though there were many students with palmistry as their hobby but none in horoscopes,which sounded more scientific and credible to the general Junta.

At times,it became difficult to manage as this phenomenon continued during exam time too,and i had really some hard time avoiding some persons solely to save some time for study.

Being an astrologer gives you many benefits..
the first being instant interaction..
the moment one knows you know astrology(doesn't matter how right or wrong),9 out of 10 times,he'll ask for your services,this way you can move into his personal domain instantly.

gals!!..Yeah it definitely works for Indian girls,(haven't tried on foreigners,may be i'll try some this summer)

Social Magnet..quoting Mr. Amitabh Gir,Manager,Admissions,ISB.."I want to learn astrolgy purely with a strategic point of view,coz people with some astro skills are social magnets".This is what he told me once during a dinner,and he was not wrong for sure.

I don't know how much help it would be once i move into the industry,but at ISM, it's been very effective. Whether it was being tagged the "1st guy" to clinch a party from the most sought after gal at ISM(guess!!!shudn't be difficult,she is in final year :-) ), a midnight call from Chicago or some unknown friend requests at Orkut(guys and gals alike),astrology has been something that has made me cultivate my second hobby i.e. to Interact with people and this surely is going to help me in industry if not astrology.
