3 eclipses in 30 days spell doom?
There are intense speculations by astrologers that the 3 eclipses that occur in a span of 30 days from July 7, 2009, may spell doom for the world as it may cause wars are some other disasters.
The lunar eclipse will occur on July 7 and August 6, and a total solar eclipse is set to occur on July 22. Astronomers say that the next total solar eclipse will only happen in 2064.
Legends say that the Kurukshetra war of Mahabharata, devastation of Dwarka and the two world wars took place after three eclipses had occurred in a span of 30 days.
However, Jana Vignana Vedika dismissed all such tales and said there is no historical or scientific evidence to prove it. Astrologer Pradeep Bansal said it was not wise to scare people with doomsday predictions.
