So much of your life is governed by the “raashi” that was on an ascendant at the time of your birth. While there was a time when nothing auspicious was undertaken without checking if the stars were aligned in favour of your raashi, that is no longer the case any longer. The only time raashis really come into prominence is while checking the compatibility of raashis before solemnising a marriage.
But if you thought belief in raashis was dying out, think again. Many are the parents who choose to have a child by C-section, so they can control the raashi.
There are words, and there are words. Some words can be easily translated, others need to be described. In April, I’ll attempt to capture the Soul of 26 'Indian' words in a drabble of exactly 100 words.
