|Hindu Destiny in Nostradamus by G.S.Hiranyappa|
Review by S.Nagarajan
Nostradamus, was born on December 14, 1503, in St. Remy de Provence. He was a seer and a time traveler. He was an expert astrologer. He knew astronomy too. He had clear visions of the future and interpreted them suitably. He died on 2nd July 1566.
He predicted the London Fire, the French Revolution, the birth and rise to power of Hitler, and the assassination of John F. Kennedy. He was often referred to as the prophet of doom because of the visions he had involving death and war.
He published his prophetic Centuries in 1555.The name derived from the arrangement of predictive verses. These verses are quatrains, having four lines each. As each of these cantos had one hundred quatrains, it is called a century. There are 942 verses in total.
The author G.S.Hiranyappa is a great scholar and he has written this book in a lucid style. The first part of the book contains 182 pages with eight chapters. There are interesting interpretations of Nostradamus’ verses about Hitler, Hinduism and Buddhism throughout the book.
The chapter titled ‘Prelude to Hindu destiny’ explains the quatrain 100, Century X. “The great empire will belong to England, It will be –all powerful for more than 300 years, Great armies will cross by land and sea, The people on Lusitrania will not be content and happy”. East India company was founded on 31st December 1600. The British came to India as traders and by 1849 the entire country fell under East India company’s rule.
In 1947 India got freedom from England after more than 300 years as predicted by the seer, Nostradamus. After analyzing this quatrain, G.S.Hiranyappa takes the quatrain 42, Century X. The humane or easy-going rule of English origin, Will unite power and peace in its regime, War will be limited to only half its territory, For a long time the British will maintain peace.
In this quatrain the author interprets that Nostradamus had foretold that the British paramountcy would last for more than 300 years. In the first world war Britain received crippling blows. After 1918, the prime place in world affairs belonged to the United States of America. The Nostradamus prophecy was completely thus fulfilled. The author has annexed two chapters on Hinduism and Buddhism written by the great scientist Fritjof Capra.
In chapter V we read about Hitler. Hundreds of shocking facts about Hitler are worth reading. Quatrains explaining the birth of first atom bomb, India’s agony under Muslim rule, Joan of arc, the national heroine of France etc are given with facts.
The author quotes great writers like Charles Berlitz, Will Durant, Leonard Mosley etc. Those who want to know the future of Hinduism should read this book without fail. The book is priced at Rs 70 and could be obtained from the author who is living in Bangalore, India.
Note: I contacted the author in Bangalore in 2012, over phone and appreciated his fantastic style and insight. How he fought with the bureaucrats in ALL INDIA RADIO for his correct views, is itself a big story. I wish the readers to read the full book to know the author’s views on Hinduism– S Nagarajan.
