As the auspicious month of October approaches fast, it’s time to get ready for the Navratras. Navratri in 2010 will start on Friday, the 8th of October and will continue till Saturday, the 16th of October.
What is Navratri?

Significance of the Nine Nights

The story of the soon to be relased film Anjaana Anjaani revolves around two loveless, luckless persons, Kiara (Priyanka Chopra) and Akash (Ranbir Kapoor), who make many efforts, though with little success, to succeed in their love life and career. Ranbir, who was earlier a part of the blockbuster Rajneeti, this time around may deliver just an average product at the box office, and this eagerly awaited Siddarth Anand directed movie may not set the cash box actually jingling in the beginning.
During the first two weeks or so, the box office collections of the film would not be relatively good. However, soon the film would gain its steam, and will meet the box office expectations of all those involved with it. The reason being the lead actors of the film, Ranbir and Priyanka, are Libra and Cancer respectively. This combination of Air and Water will take positive turn as the sun transits into Libra’s favorable month ‘October’, from the business point of view the film will make enough money. And the chemistry of this young lead pair in the film would be much loved by the viewers, and this would also keep the film on top.
The year 2011 is the year of the Rabbit. It would be a peaceful year, vis-à-vis 2010, the relatively violent year of the Tiger, and much welcomed by the people. It would be the best time to go off to some quiet place to nurse your wounds received during the year gone by, and get the much needed respite and rest.
During 2011, people would be more refined and they would realize the value of persuasion as compared to force. Diplomacy, international relations and politics would again hog limelight, and people will act with sound judgment and make logical concessions with ease.
However, the influence of the Rabbit would not do any good to those who love comfort, and actually play havoc with their efficiency and sense of duty. Law and order would also not be something to feel happy about. Rules and regulations could go for a toss, and not strictly enforced. But few or no one would really take a note of these disagreeable facts. They would be busy having a good time themselves, entertaining others, or just taking it easy.
Serenity would prevail. People would have a propensity to put off unpleasant responsibilities for as long as possible. Money would come without putting in much effort. People would be relaxed and unhurried while they enjoy the many luxuries and comforts of life that they may have wanted since long.
In short, 2011 promises to be a pleasant year with easygoing pace.
