Thiruvananthapuram: If you firmly believe that stars and planets and their movement in the celestial space can play a vital role in the relations of two nations, there is good news: A Kerala numerologist has predicted the dawn of a new era in the Indo-US relations with the visit of US President Donald Trump.
M.K. Damodaran, a 67-year-old retired government employee, claimed on Tuesday that his prediction is based on the calculations he arrived at after considering the dates of birth of Trump and Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
He said his past predictions that came true include India's victory in the 2011 Cricket World Cup, and US topping the medal tally in the 2012 London Olympics.
Damodaran said that the birth number of both leaders is 5, which represents planet Mercury. Besides the sun sign of Trump is Gemini, which is owned by planet Mercury which is represented by number 5.
Likewise, he claimed, Modi's sun sign Virgo is owned by Mercury, and is also related to number 5.
Drawing a comparison with India-US relations during the rules of Atal Bihari Vajpayee and Bill Clinton in the two countries, he said that even then their numerological connection was good.
Besides, he claimed, the occult number of Donald Trump is 3, the same as India's.
