"Dr Manmohan Singh and his Navagrahas" This is how a
theory is now in circulation. After Lunar eclipse, the planetic 
positions certainly change. But for Dr Singh, the saturn is
Ram Dev, likewise each planet is described with the following
eight personalities. The downfall of UPA2 and Dr Singh will
come from  MJ Akbar, Dr Subramanian Swamy, KN Govindacharya
Cho Ramaswamy, S Gurumurthy,Ritambra,Prasant Bhushan and
Anna Hazare. UPA2 is keeping a close watch on their movements

Two DMK Union Ministers who have business interest in 
Tamil Nadu have begun to get closer to AIADMK and the

received her at the portico and seen her off by standing till
her car left. Dr Singh also chose to send his SPG sanitized 
SUV vehicle to Tamil Nadu house to bring Jayalalitha to 
5 Race Course Road. Due her health and knee problem, 
she cannot sit in a car which has a lower platform. 
She has to climb to sit next to driver seat
She needs space to move to get down from the vehicle, she
ails from knee joint problems. SPG Director KN Wanchoo
coordinated with Tamil Nadu police in despatch of SPG vehicle

instrument is kept in his chambers, he has to dial with roatating
fingers. Alagiri is not complaining as the RAX is maintained by
the Union Home Ministry-especially IB. Alagiri tapped his forehead
for an antique piece is kept in his chambers.
