In walked a tall, handsome and wirily built man. I took his data and name and fed them to my computer. It was an excellent chart, with exalted Jupiter in the 10th house and Venus well placed in the 4th house.
“Are you in any way connected with art, dance, music or any creative profession and already quite well placed in life with a lot of money.?”, I asked, to verify the birth data.
“Yes” he said.
“Give details young man, your astrologer is like your doctor. The more data you give the better will be my analysis.” I said.
“Yes punditji, I am the Punjabi pop singer Shankar Sahney” he said.
“Are you quite famous?” I asked, as I don’t know a thing about Punjabi pop music.
He looked uncomfortable and said, “You type my name in the Google search bar and judge yourself sir.”
I did and it turned out he is next only to Daler Mehndi in Punjabi pop!! (Later when he went away, my daughter gave me a piece of her mind for not introducing him)
This ex chemical engineer turned pop star, who is the son of a music professor, is a highly religious man. A teetotaler and a vegetarian, he is a highly religious person and spends several hours a day doing pooja, stotra path & mantra japa. He presented me with several of his CD’s and I presented him with my stotras CD.
He rang up and came a few months later. “Finally I recorded something which you will appreciate.” he said, and played the CD.
The Shiva bhakta Shankar Sahney who sang the 108 recitals of Maha Mrityunjaya Mantra, is 108 times better than the pop singer Shankar Sahney.
The Maha Mrityunjaya Mantra.
“Om Tryambakam yajamahe sugandhim pushhtivardhanam
Urvarukamiva bandhanan mrityor mukshiya maamritath.”
He has now added one more stotra to the CD, the famous Bhavani Asthakam.
