Astrology and politics have a long history in Tamil Nadu. And so when there's uncertainty in the air, politicians have flocked to astrologers to predict what the stars have in store for them.
"It's an open secret that politicians here are believers of astrology despite the leaders of these parties espousing rationalism," observes political analyst Sumanth C Raman.
Politicians across party lines are now knocking on the doors of renowned astrologers in Chennai as they struggle for the seat of power in Tamil Nadu and interestingly enough, almost every politician wants the answer to one question - Will I become the next CM or not?
"It's a clear reflection of the insecurity among the politicians today considering the prevalent political atmosphere. It's clearly a great time to be an astrologer," adds Raman.
Renowned astrologer Sehlvi, who has a number of political clients, says these leaders approach him with the hope of some good news.
"A great leader has passed away so each of these politicians believe they have a chance and come to us. But these politicians only want good news. The moment we ask them to wait or give them the bad news, they consult another astrologer to hear what they want," says Sehlvi.
And if you're wondering when the political instability will end! Well out of sheer curiosity we asked Sehlvi and according to his prediction, the turbulence will end on November 26.
Post November may be Tamil Nadu netas can rest easy and know their political fortunes. They may have failed to carry forward Jayalalithaa's political legacy but they definitely seemed to have instilled their faith in the stars much like their Amma.
