The Sun's longitude is 340 degrees today, 25 03 18, which means Kerala is experiencing the hot, summer season. Temperature has gone upto 34 - 36 degrees. We have the hot months of Meena & Mesha before us. Acute potable water problem in many villages have been reported, due to poor water management. Kerala is in for big trouble, before Edava Pathi dawns on 29th May, when Sun's longitude becomes 45 degrees !

If you know your Moon you can know what the divine forces of Destiny have in store for you.

Lovely Song about Katakali

Actors are the two legends of Kerala Cinema, Prem Nazeer and Sree Vidya.

Manipravala Thalakal Unarnoo
Manassil kamala dalangal vithirnoo
Kavya Kalayude kanakamgulikalil
Kathakali Mudrakal Vidarnoo !

Manipravala ......................

Verses equalling Ruby ( Mani ) and Coral ( Pravala )
And lotus blossomed in Mind !
From the great Art of Poetry
Rose the Mudras of the King of all Arts ( Kathakali )

Sharat kala megham Thirasselayayi
Sasiklaa Kali vilakkayee
Onnayi Varriyarum
Irayimman Thapiyum
Varna narayangal minukkee

The clouds of Sharath
Became curtain for the play
Moon became the Lamp
Both Variar and Thampi became one
Giving finishing touches to costumes !

Pampayum Periyarum
Bharata puzhayum
Aa padangal paadi
Chaitra marangal aadee !
Chendayil thengilayil
Elathalangil Syamantakangal kilingee

The rivers of Kerala
Bharata puzha, Pampa and Periyar
Sang those beautiful verses
And the trees of Chaitra danced !

Manipravala .....................

Damayantiyayi Droupadiyayi
Kairali Rathiyay Sathiyay
Rambhayay Radhayay
Raasa Natanam Aadi !

As Damayanti, Droupadi
And as Devayani
Magnificent Kerala rose
As Rathi, as Sathi
As Rambha and Radha
She danced the Blissful Dance !

Ratnakireedavumayi Thiranottam Nadathi
Rasa Chakravarthiyam Sringaram..

Manipravala .......................

How correct is the Kerala Calendar ! Edava Pathy, South West Monsoon starts !

Edava Pathy, South West Monsoon struck Kerala at about 0730 PM. Heavy rains and winds lashed Guruvayur at that time.

The Sun entered the 14th degree of Sidereal Taurus yesterday. And it rained at night, showing the accuracy of the Kerala Calendar.

As I had lost my modem due to lightning last week, I put if off and left office at that time. Last week I lost 2 K, as lightning devastated my modem.

Chatayam Njattuvela !

In Kerala, the hot season has begun. The sidereal month of Aquarius or Kumbha started on 13th Feb and Kerala is about to reel under a heat wave. Last year the death from sunstrokes was > 100 !

On 19th, Chathayam or Sathabhisha Njattuvela started and so we are ready for a hot phase. Kumbha Choodu and Meena Choodu are famous, as the earth becomes scorched due to lack of rains.

Some summer rains can come, but they cannot sustain ! Till Edava Pathi or the Half of Taurus, we cannot expect major rains ! So a very hot season indicated till Vrishabha or Taurus !

Aridra Njattuvela also devastates !

The Dance of Destruction of the SW Monsoon continues. It is raining cats and dogs here in Guruvayur.

Chalakudy River is overflowing 

Fishermen are warned not to venture into the sea and Trawling is banned. Now the Sun is transiting Aridra and this is known as Thiruvathira Njattuvela in Kerala. 10 days, 10 nights, meaning that there will be sufficient rains with sunny interludes. The Dance of Destruction done by the Head of Orion, Mriga Sira, the samhara thandava of Mriga Sira is gone, replaced  by the still fierce Aridra or Roudra Njattuvela. Njayar means Sun and Velas are  periods, meaning that they are the periods of the Sun. 

On 5 Jul, the Punarvasu Njattuvela will begin and on 19th, the Pushya Njattuvela.

Mrigasira devastates India !

Aridra or Thiruvathira Njattuvela, the Solar Transit of Alpha Orionis, begins today. Mrigasira, which concluded tooday, was fraught with devastation. Mrigasira is ruled by the fiery Mars and hence the destruction ! We pray for the victims of Kedarnath tragedy. It is said that the astrologer is wise after the event, even though he can discern the heavenly signs !

Now Aridra is Roudra, another fiery constellation and the destructive aspect of the South West Monsoon can still wreak havoc.

We are de-Anaxagorasing our prayers. May not the SWM wreak destruction and may not the Monsoon Fury affect the overpopulated Indian subcontinent and the whole world !

NE Monsoon graces Kerala !

Despite criticism that Thula Varsha or the North East Monsoon is far away, she is dot on time. It rained heavily in Trichur yesterday. It rained heavily in Madras the day before.

Tamil Nadu receives more rains than Kerala in this North East Monsoon phase. In Kerala rains are less this year, with the result we have unwanted power cuts. 

We hope it pours heavily again. If not Kerala is in for more power cuts. 

The N E Monsoon has a direct bearing on the economy, as Mr Monsoon is the Finance Minister of India !
