The ‘Royal Slut’ – A Tale of Two Sisters !!

18 Jun











I often think of these two. Very little is known about their exact origin but they are believed to ( or appear to ) have been originated together. As the luck would have it, one became a Royal Lady and another – a Royal Slut.

We popularly know them as  Medical Science  and Astrology.





If I look around, I find that 90 % of my friends use ( or are forced to use ) both. Rest 10 % are astrologers / medical advisors or they think… they are !!

Strangely, when they use the first ( MS) they promote, discuss, recommend ( some even flaunt its use and the resultant medical bills, as a status-symbol… ha…ha !! ) 


The RS (royal slut ) is used ( and abused ) only in private and in darkness.  


Time has come when both “Royal” and “Slut” parts should be analysed and discussed in detail.


Both M.Sc. and Astrology were given to us by the Creator Himself but as is his Divine habit, He gives us every thing in raw shape / form. He gives us iron ore and we make steel. He gives us males and females and we make ladies, gentlemen, doctors, engineers, professionals… on….!!

We did not get Medical Science as we know it today. It was given to us in a very raw and crude basic form. In fact, if we ( hypothetically ) put both together – what we were”given” and what we “have today” – , we may not find great many similarities between the two. This change / improvement / refinement /transformation, has been possible and has been MADE possible, with thousands of years’ concerted, conscious efforts and consistent research. The Creator gave us just a field to research in and we have made a new and vital asset out of that ( well almost ).

We don’t know why Astrology was left to fend for herself to street-fight for her very survival.  Now the big question is, if she did not have anything divine and royal in her, would she have been able to survive for so many thousands of years alone in the streets ? 

There are millions of reasons why we should have Astrology as a subject in our schools and colleges ( like the Medical Science ) and institutionalize and legitimize the long awaited, much needed ( and now over-overdue ), research which she rightly deserves. Just to give you, one such good reason here :

 please go to your local Astrologer and give your birth time, date and place of birth and there are 70 to 90 % chances that at least one Astrologer in your city / town, would be able to diagnose the disease which you may have or are likely to have in the future.

After this, go and repeat the same exercise ( giving him these three details only ) with and in front of, the best medical doctor in your city /town. The result will be a big zero.

In this one sense ( at least ) the equation is 70 to 90 %  vs. 0 %…in favour of Astrology. Yes I agree that 70 % or even 90 % is definitely not 100 % but let me tell you that if a medical doctor has this percentage, s/he is likely to be among the best doctors of international repute.

Let us all have a divine stoop and pick her up to own, legitimize, reform, research, refine, adopt, adapt and give Astrology its due and be…benefited from it. It is in our own interests only. She does not need us as our callous neglect, has already taught her…to survive alone.

She has survived and shall…survive on her own.

Same can not be said about our dear Medical Science because we know…she ( MS ) is too pampered to survive alone in the streets without our patronage especially for the next thousands of years, like Astrology has done !! 





Yours truly,

‘religiously’ religion-less and ‘religion-less-ly’ religious !!

    Thoughtful post Sir… I loved how you compared and contrasted MS and Astrology. Thank you for sharing😀

    I wonder if the “Scortum” is anywhere near the left ear?

      And what makes you wonder that ?

      Where did you last see / put it ?

      Have you tried ‘Lost & Found’ dept. of the local police ?

      I am afraid can not help you much. You should be more careful with your body parts.
      They cost a fortune these days !!

        Take a closer look at your uploaded images.

        This image is related to Astrological Chart or horoscope and definitely not a diagram of a human body. Left ear comes under 11th house and Scrotum comes under 8th house and both are not together ( even arithmetically 8 and 11 can not be called “together” ).

        1. My comment about the left ear was a joke.
        2. Scrotum is spelled “scortum” in the bottom right hand of the diagram.

        My turn to wonder : why some people see only the negative ?
        This is an Indian-Astrology image.

        I have ‘downloaded-uploaded’ it, so, can not change the spellings.

        If you are comfortable with British spellings and American spellings then what is wrong
        in having Indian Spellings ?

        More the merrier !!

        With you in support of Indian spellings in English 🙂

    You make a compelling argument. Per the flavour of the season, how about a referendum?

    • surindernath

      June 25, 2016 at 3:30 pm

      Brexit, for me, means :

      Globalization has a limit. People still want their “home sweet home ” !!

      So, even referendums have their limits !!

      And by the way, result would have been different if it had been done two months later. Jupiter would have been separated from Rahu !!

      • Ankur Mithal

        Ha ha! Thankfully Rahu is not known to the western world else we would have to fight for patenting it 🙂

      • surindernath

        June 26, 2016 at 4:18 am

        Rahu has an English name also but better share it after the “patenting”…ha…ha !!

    Shop that astrologer VERY carefully. Some are better than others, and some are more benevolent than others.

        You are welcome. Nice piece. I think the power of “science” is overestimated and the “non-science” undervalued.

        Very well said.

        Astrology has many problems and hurdles on the way to initiate “institutionalized” research into it – mainly related to our mindsets.

        Normally, it is the ‘fear of failure’ which discourages us from research in any field but in this case, it is the ‘fear of success’ which discourages us !!

      • Grandtrines

        July 8, 2016 at 7:23 am

        I think that, among other things, that astrology is a very good system of symbols that can harness latent intuitive faculties of the astrologer to produce foresight. It does not fit within “science,” but sometimes it can be amazingly accurate. I agree re: “institutionalized” research.

        As we say over here in the West, particularly in “The South”: “Amen, Brother!” 🙂

        Amen !!

    One of your best posts yet. What an innovative take on medical science and astrology. Gave me a good laugh too. At least when I laugh, I’m resorting to something given to me “raw” by the gods. Until humans started to improve it with something called speech.

      Thanks for supporting the Cause Eric !!

    Just like Medicine, if placed in wrong hands Astrology is a fraud but in right hands is a science. There are going to be quacks in both fields & maestros in both.
