To those who hold their deepest belief in astrology, they should refer to their special times and occasions. For students who hope to pass certain exams, from filling out forms to checking results, every moment is precious and heartbreaking for them.
In a recent image that has gone viral, we can see an infomercial from an astrology center that quotes to provide guidance on Indian Administrative Service (IAS) and Police Clearance Services (PCS) exams. Wait what? Here, the advice would not refer to preparation through tests or to study the program in depth. You wonder, so what? The center promises in its poster copy to guide people through the IAS, PCS exam – on factors such as: selection of an elective subject, year to take the exam, best time for submission of the form, chances of selection…
People interested in and exposed to these competitions, especially in northern Indian states, might be aware that such babas predicting their chances of passing the exam or suggesting overselection are not uncommon.
Sharing the image of the service, Twitter user @Sanjay_IRTS jokingly guessed that the next service that might be offered by the center could be “overseer vashikaran (bewitchment)…”. However, for the curious, the Astrology Center is located at KG Marg area in New Delhi and the expert who would provide the mentioned service would be Shyam Manohar Mishra.
