by Dr Manish Pandit

Introduction: It is now Pitru Paksha. Saturn is also stationary in Saggitarius with Ketu. One of the people who I prayed should attain peace at Gaya was my uncle. The story which I quote is very old. I used to go to the North of India on vacation when I was a child. There I used to meet my father's younger sister's husband, we used to address him as Choudhry uncle.
