Ranchi: The land of waterfalls, lakes & scenic beauty


Ranchi is the Capital of Jharkhand now is one of the oldest districts in Jharkhand since the British Era. Ranchi is also called as city of Water falls and lakes. Earlier the name of the district was Lohardaga. The old district had come into existence after the creation of the non-regulation South – West frontier in 1831-32. The name of the district has since then to changed to Ranchi in 1899..

The city witnessed a sudden surge in population after the declaration of the new state of Jharkhand was formed in 2000. Owing to the rising employment opportunities and opening of numerous regional and state level offices, banks, and FMCG companies, the city witnessed a rapid influx of employment seeking migrants. As per a study done by ASSOCHAM in late 2010, Ranchi was the highest employment generating Tier-III city in India with a share of 16.8%, followed by Managlore and Mysore.

The name Ranchi was earlier known as Rachi. The area has an agricultural locality, in between Hinoo & Harmoo river. The present Purani Ranchi was originally known as the village Archi. Ranchi was the centre of the Jharkhand movement for a separate state for the tribal regions of South Bihar, northern Orissa, Western West Bengal and the present eastern Chhattisgarh. Subarnarekha River flows by the side of the city hence is famous for it’s rivers and waterfalls.

Ranchi had a population of 846,454. Males constitute 53% of the population and females 47% and has an average literacy rate of 74%, higher than the national average of 59.5%: male literacy is 80%, and female literacy is 68%.

Vaastu for corporates and real estate developers


Vaastu has an impact on real-estate pricing so, think before buying an appartment.

The elements of Vaastu have come to play a role in the real estate market.

Property dealers and developers say people are concerned with Vaastu factor while buying a property. Looking for Vaastu conforming properties, positioning things within the house according to the directions specified by Vaastu. Trends are fast catching up. It is no more surprising to see builders advertising that their buildings have been designed according to Vaastu.

Over the years, there has been a clear cut demand for Vaastu compliant properties but earlier people did not have many options due to unawarness.

Are Real Estate developers now forced to follow Vaastu while designing their structures?

Many of my clients have agreed that Vaastu was significant enough to impact their house purchase prices. Buildings and plots that don’t conform to Vaastu command a lower price. Those who make an investment in property are concerned about the return on investment and they believe that Vaastu compliant property can fetch them higher returns from the non-Vaastu compliant one.

Before buying a property , Vaastu Audit should be duly conducted by a reputed consultant.

Vaastu means the physical environment and Shastra means the knowledge. The combination of the two is known as Vaastu Shastra? Which means the knowledge of the physical environment. This ancient science is based on the principles of controlling two basic forces-Positive forces and the Negative forces. Any architectural design either brings in some good effects or evil effects on the persons inhabitating the structure.

The ill effects are numerous so, instead of blaming your luck and destiny, the right move is to get the Vaastu Experts consulted before buying the house or for getting your home renovated for leading the life full of happiness, wealth, healthy life, success in married life, success in relationships, success in business and other fields.

Corporate Vaastu:

MNC’s, who come to India are more particular about Vaastu in their offices, because of the benefits derived from this wonder science.

While MNCs are brushing up on Vaastu, traditional Indian business houses have progressed to the next stage where factors like magnetic fields, the sun’s movement and energy flow are considered before beginning new construction.

The importance of Vaastu can be seen in making websites and also for Logos of companies and it’s product. The instance can be seen with a cold drink manufacturer whose sales graph rose after going in for such changes and the misfortune to two airlines which were grounded due to this flaw.

The Corporates are in love with the Vaastu Mantra. Some swear by it while others hate to admit it. But because most people are western educated they feel it will project an inward looking image in a Hitech World when everyone is looking west-wards.

importance of Vaastu in Modern Life


What is the importance of Vaastu in Modern Life ?

This science is complete in itself.

Happiness to the whole world it can bring

All the four benefits it bestows on you

Rightful living, money, fulfillment of desires and bliss

Are all available in this world itself”.

Vaastu is the ancient Indian science of architecture man-made structures and a part of the Vedas specifies the word ‘Vaastu’ in Sanskrit as the earth, and in the modern context it covers all types of constructions. Vaastu pertains to the physical, psychological and spiritual order of the built environment, in consonance with the cosmic energies. It is a study of planetary influences on buildings and the people who live in them, and aims at providing guidelines for proper construction.

The ancient Hindus believed that for peace, happiness, health and wealth one should abide by the guidelines while building a dwelling. It tells us how to avoid diseases, depression and disasters by living in structures, which allow the presence of a positive cosmic field.

The layout of your residence or work place is very similar to an Horoscope. In astrology one cannot tame the baneful planets whereas the science of Vaastu prescribes that the Earth being one of the nine planets is the best approach to configure to our needs and get the best results and get benificial results from such ill effects of the planets.

Since Vedic wisdom is considered to be synonymous with divine knowledge of the cosmic mind obtained by sages in deep states of meditation, Vaastu Shastra or the science of Vaastu is thought to contain the guidelines given by the Supreme Being.

The principles of of this wonder science had been explained in ancient Hindu scriptures. Fundamental premise of this science rests on the assumption that the earth is a living organism, out of which other living creatures and organic forms emerge, and so every particle on earth and space possesses ‘live energy’.

According to Vaastu shastra five elements – Earth, Fire, Water, Air or atmosphere and Sky or space – governs the principles of creation. These forces act for or against each other to create harmony and disharmony. It also says that everything on earth – in some form or the other – is influenced by the planets, and each of these planets guards a direction. So our dwellings are under the influence of the five elements and the nine planets.

If the structure of your house is so designed that the positive forces override the negative forces then there is a beneficial release of bio-energy, which helps you and your family members to live a happy and healthy life. A positive cosmic field prevails in a house as per the principales laid down, where the atmosphere is congenial for a smooth and happy life. Contrary to this, if the same structure is built in a manner that the negative forces override the positive, the overbearing negative field makes your actions, efforts and thoughts negative. Herein comes the benefits of Vaastu, which guides you to have a positive atmosphere at home.

Evidently, Vaastu is akin to the science of geopathy, the study of the diseases of the earth. Geopathy recognizes that electromagnetic radiations that are cosmic in origin surrounds the globe, and that radiation distortions can make a site unsafe for construction. Geopathic stress may also attack the immune system and cause health related problems.

There are also a lot of similarities between Vaastu and its Chinese counterpart Feng Shui, in that they recognize the existence of positive and negative forces (Yin and Yang) except for the fact that the latter attaches too much importance to gadgets, like flutes, mirrors etc. In Fend Shui the nine year cycle in a human beings causes a problem by shifting one to a different place which is not practicle, hence Vaastu is gaining rapid popularity in India and abroad.

Does this wonder art make any sense? While many people still strongly believe in Vaastu, the common consense is that it is an ancient science, which was useful in conditions prevailing in ancient times, but nowadays, the modern theory of Vaastu is sweeping across the Western World due to the benifits people derive from this Science of Movement and Placement.

Hence, rediscovered again the Modern Science of Vaastu came into practice in residence and industries.

Gist of Vaastu:

Man’s quest for health and happiness has been rewarded by Nature in various forms. The evolution thereof is a never-ending process, though the momentum, depending on several factors, keeps on changing. ‘Vaastu’ is one of such forms. Now you too can arrange HOUSE and WORK PLACE according to Vaastu and make your life a little more happier and harmonious.

Advantage of Vaastu over Feng-Shui:

Vastu or Vaastu is gaining rapid popularity in India and abroad due to the fact that it has Universal Applicability and no Religion boundations are involved in it. It has no signifcance of geographical boundaries required as in Feng-Shui.

Vaastu as a science is in no way related to performing  rituals. It stands alone of looking at various dimensions for getting the people living in house rid of ill effects of the negative forces and provides shield against against such ill effects.

Effect of Vaastu Puja & Yantras


Effect of Vaastu Puja & Yantras.

“There are many powerful yantras related to yogic practices, experiential meditation and for specific healing practices. But regarding Vaastu, yantras and meditation are largely ineffective.

“Even the Gods and saints who come into the physical body are subject to the powerful influences of the five elements.

The magnetic power of the earth element directly affect the soul. The pervasive influence of the earth, water and fire elements cannot be completely ameliorated by burying or displaying power objects and yantras.

The blessings of a powerful siddhic master certainly help, as do homas, pujas and protective power objects.

But if you want to sail with the wind to your back one must abide by Vaastu principles or forever be subject to negative influences.”
