Namaste Sarajit,

At the start, where you mention the panchanga, the 3rd element you stated should be Karana and not Karaka!

Warm Regards
Narayan

hi sarajit,

thank you 4 putting up this blog. i have been searching long and hard 4 good jyotish tutorials on the net, and i discovered many but nothing as comprehensive as this.
this is fabulous stuff, man. i love ur approach, outlining broad principles, no mugging up, etc.

i wanted to make a little request.
is there any way u can create an index of available posts? the tiny list u hv on every page hides more than it reveals. of course, there is a search facility, but if possible do create some sitemap kind of thing.

thanks again 4 this wonderful blog
