Astrology centre inaugurated Monday, June 25, 2001
Ahmedabad, June 24: The Gujarat Chapter of All India Astrologers Societies inaugurated its centre in Ahmedabad on Monday. Eminent scholars from all over the country attended the function and spoke on the occasion.
The speakers asserted that astrology is a science and they would fight jointly against the systematic tirade and efforts to run down the ancient branch of knowledge.
The president, Mr Arun Bansal, said that the education of astrology has so far been completely neglected in our country but the present move of UGC, to introduce it in academics is a right step to promote and encourage this ancient science.
Mr Bansal said that people have wrong notions because they haven’t studied the subject in-depth.
Speakers on the occasion said that the need of the hour is to remove ignorance about the astrology prevalent in the society and make it more systematic study involving training and research in the field.
Giving details about centre, Mr Bansal said that the Ahmedabad centre is 51st in the country and 100 more will come up. The centre will provide special courses, syllabus and prepared textbooks.
