    This Vedic astrology writer had alerted against massive floods and connected serious problems in Gujrat , Rajasthan and other vulnerable States through article “ 2017 – an opportune year for India with major worrisome concerns in February-March and August-September” issued widely to Indian news media last year in October and November 2016. The text of the alert covering near and in August-September 2017 , reads like this : “ near and in August-September times, look to be presenting health hazards or epidemics. Floods and landslides may generate huge worry in Gujrat , Rajasthan and other vulnerable States of India. Plants and crops including food crops could fall short of normal expectations. Huge dangerous super sea storm in coastal areas could likely lash at , among others , Gujrat leaving a distinct mark of devastation on the land”. Contemporary news reports suggest that alert made about 10 months past from now has been meaningful. Be alert in coming days.
