ASHOK DAHAL

  A passage into tomorrow  
  BY ASHISH DHAKAL  
 
He unrolls the scroll handed to him by the woman and closely studies the charts and circles full of numbers and letters. The woman looks at him curiously and asks, “Yo barsha mero chhorako bihe hune lekhya chha ki chhaina, Buwa?” (Is it written that my son will get married this year?) He mutters some calculations, nods to himself, and says, “Baisakhma jureko chha. Tayari shuru garda hunchha aba.” (The month of May will be the right time. You can start the preparations.) After a few more questions about the kind of daughter-in-law she will get, how good the match will be, and what the future has in store for her son, the woman gives him a generous “Thank you” and leaves.

Kila Nath Bastakoti, 55, ex-Chairman of the Asian Astrologers’ Congress, limits his astrological predictions to at most 10 people a day nowadays, that too following appointments. But there was a time when crowds flocked to his house, asking him to interpret their birth charts, read cheena, advise about investments and travel abroad, and generally defog their future for them.
