BPL commentary:

For Krittika natives, the condition of radiant, intelligent, central, confident, self-reflexive, pitrikaraka Surya considerably affects the outcome.

Father-figures, politicians, celebrity, royalty, entitled roles, brilliant dramatists, radiant deities, sparkling genius, glittering creativity, intelligentsia, poets romantic lovers, and game-players may be especially influential.

1959: Dwight David Eisenhower, POTUS-34

Eisenhower had a 35-year military career. He served as a military officer in Washington D.C. policy making positions, and he worked as a strategic planner during both WW-I and WW-II. Yet he was always a historian, strategist, and tactician; never a combat soldier. Eisenhower never fought even a single day in ctive combat. He graduated from the Army officer school West Point Academy 1915, and until the 1940's he continued to receive more and more military trainings.

His continuing education, with military paid research and historical studies, gave Eisenhower a professor's level of theoretical interpretative and committee governance skills. During WW-I, he remained stateside working as a trainer. By the standard promotional structure he was eventually promoted to the rank of General Commander.

Allied troops were intimidated by the superior strength of Axis forces in Europe. It looked horribly certain that Axis would win. Eisenhower was considered to be the one man who could possibly undertake the extraordinarily detailed, tightly coordinated tactical and strategic planning that could be the key to overcome a powerful enemy.

With zero combat experience, Eisenhower was named supreme commander of the Allied Expeditionary Force in Europe. He did visit the soldiers in the field, but was quickly whisked away from any active fighting. Until the stunning success of D-Day in 1944, even Eisenhower did not believe that his elaborate orchestrations could work.

POTUS-34 Interstate Highways 1890-1969 Dwight D. Eisenhower served as a high-level defender of the American majority way of life, particularly the cultural (Chandra) values of pluralism, democratic governance and participatory economic systems. During a lifetime military career, General Eisenhower never fought a single day on the battlefield. Rather, he protected and defended from an elite mentalistic strategic perspective, signaled by Surya in his logical-strategic Kanya 10th-navamsha.
