BPL commentary:

For Dhaniztha natives, the condition of pioneering, direct, yang-energy, forward-pushing bhratru-karaka Mangala considerably affects the outcome.

Brother-figures, warriors, hunters, athletes, dancers, champions, challengers, inventors, explorers, dis-coverers, engineers, drivers, drillers, diggers, exploders, aggressors, pursuers, and competitors may be especially influential.

QUOTATION from: Shil-Ponde.(1939). Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra. p 87

"Two entirely different types are born with Dhaniztha rising.

It depends on the part of this asterism, which lies on the Rising Point, as to which type predominates.

  • The key notes of both are optimism and ambition .

They both have thick necks and heavy thighs.

  • But there the similarity stops." (see later Pada descriptions).

Distinctive Features of the Nativity


Zanjeer 1942- drama-politics Amitabh Bachchan is a master of economic self-re-invention. After his cinematic career collapsed (8) and again after a political corruption scandal (Shani-Rahu period) Mr. Bachchan's public reputation recovered with surprising alacrity. Professor Guru-9 creates a permanent drain upon the reputation (12th-from-10th) caused by philosophical theoretical interests in a wide variety of ventures. Uttama-Budha rules both 8 and 11 granting sharply analytical problem-solving capabilities that target economic and social-material achievement gains and goals.

Kanya cluster in bhava-9 patriarchal figures: Victim narrative and popular appeal

Many of Mr. Bachchan's most celebrated dramatic roles have prominently featured the victim narrative (Kanya). In youthful portrayals, he specialized in the character of the Angry Young Man. Surya-9 grants Credibility; his representation of the unfairly treated man are supremely believable.

More mature roles tended to dramatize betrayal, false accusation, humiliation, and unmet expectations. Kanya represents "soap opera" narrative of injustice, that is continuously popular among the service classes Kanya.

According to the eminent Jyotisha Shri B.V. Raman, every land and people is governed by a particular rashi, and Raman asserts that the rashi of Mother India is Kanya. When Mr. Bachchan's finances failed or he experienced injuries or disgrace, his popular appeal in Kanya-land has steadily increased.
