Murdoch's Super Media Empire is being hit by a tsunami!
When I wrote about a few observations associated with the position and recent movements of Jupiter a few weeks back, I had a feeling that I haven’t finished yet! I am sure astrologers around the world are trying to see if the new position of the planet Jupiter, which is not one of the dwarf planets, in the house of Mars somehow explains the abrupt and disastrous fall of Murdoch's empire.
I had listed some events which have shocked the world and have become defining moments in nation’s histories. I had also felt there could be more! What characterized all of them was not merely the profound loss to the establishment these incidents brought about but the speed and abruptness with which they happened, taking the whole world by awe and surprise.
Still I had somehow felt that I wasn’t complete in my reasoning, because, a large part of the world population was left out of the effects, though the life and future of everyone was affected in a defining way due to the colossal nature of the events.
I surely can’t say I am glad to take satisfaction that my curiosity and premonition about planet Jupiter is fulfilling as it affects so many lives with sad and disastrous effects. But the tsunami currently hitting the empire of Rupert Murdoch is definitely closing the gap!
The events, in breathtaking succession, of the last few days in the United Kingdom which has resulted in the arrests and resignation of so many people who till recently enjoyed unprecedented power can only be likened to a political tsunami that has stuck the east cost of the Atlantic and is expected to strike the west cost soon with similar devastating effects.
It is not just the enormous wealth of Murdoch in question, but the humiliating crumbling of the of the media super world he has managed to build in our lifetime, It is not just his fall from the position of a kingmaker but the depth to which he has fallen, borne out by the humiliating apology he had to make to the Dowler family, which actually show the fierceness of the tsunami wiping out the ground under his feet and his political empire.
If you believe in God and love him truly, sometimes, you are bestowed with the good fortune of being able to sing his praise, even if it is about his hidden wealth!
As if to atone for the ignorance of its Comptroller and Auditor General and make up for the loss he claimed the country has suffered, India has recently discovered a treasure in one of its ancient temples in the idyllic southern state, fondly called God’s Own Country.
These idiotic claims made by a stupid CAG of India, outside the constitutional limits of his office, has caused unprecedented loss to the Indian market capitalization, pulling India’s growth by several points down and creating a huge deficit in the trust of foreign investors in the Indian economy.
