Description

When Mangesh Hattikudur (Part-Time Genius, Humans Growing Stuff) set out to do a big, sweeping show on astrology, he didn’t realize the first interview would change the course of his life. But as he tries to put his world back together, he realizes the incredible ways astrology presents itself in modern society: from NASA employees who keep their belief in astrology in the closet, to world leaders who’ve used astrologers to guide foreign policy, to moneyball statisticians who use astrology more than statistics to build baseball teams, to a little shop in India where your fortune was written for you centuries ago, and is waiting for you to come claim it. Over the course of 8 episodes, Mangesh tries to decipher why we keep looking to the stars for answers, and what happens when you don’t believe in astrology, but astrology keeps happening to you.

This isn't a show about astrology but a show about a drama queen; and I do mean queen, who only wants to talk about themselves. He's confused alright, but its not so much to do with his fate or purpose, as it is his lifestyle choices. Which I have no qualms with anyones lifestyle choices ever. For as long as they do not negatively impact other peoples lives, and their happiness. In this case the particular lifestyle "choices" in question certainly do affect everyone involved. So it's no wonder that there's marital issues, and there always will be for that matter. Sorry not sorry, but you won't ever find happiness if you can't accept who you are. All in all, I've learned nothing new, inspiring, eye-opening, or frankly even interesting. I'd have a very different opinion if the subject matter wasn't 90% about you, and the remaining 10% being astrology. Most of which is solely focused on Indian astrology. Mostly.. Ok sure, write what you know (or in this case broadcast what you know) bu

My man was so smooth at hiding his infidelity and I had no proof for months, I saw a recommendation about this software guru and Private investigator and decided to give him a try.. the result was incredible because all my man’s text messages, whatsapp, facebook and even phone conversations were linked directly to my cell phone. ''hackingloop6@ gmail . com'' helped me put round-the-clock monitoring on him and I got concrete evidence and gave it to my lawyer for divorce proceedings. If your partner is an expert at hiding their cheating adventures. Contact ''hackingloop6@ gmail .com'', also on WhatsApp + 1(484) 540 - 0785. You can also reach him if your funds are hanging in online trading platforms like expert-option ,cal financial, Analyst , coinspot, Ctxprime and many more...
