My sincere and Heartfelt Thanks to Mr. Mandraselvan who the Founder/Editor for having faith in my forecasting Science and making my Weather and Earthquake Forecast available to viewers all over the World. Ever since an article about my Weather Forecasting Research was published by the famous Tamil weekly ANANDA VIKATAN, Mandraselvan has been constant follower of my forecasts and used to take my forecast through his HAM RADIO operations. Last couple of years he has published my Weather & Earthquake forecasts in his website. Our friendship grew without a meeting between both of us.

After 12 long years we met for the first time when I went to Rameshwaram during February, 2014. Thanks is too small a gesture towards the Help he has done in making my forecast reach the viewers of the world. I will remain grateful to Mr. Mandraselvan forever. I also thank all the people who have seen my 2015/16 forecast and for the encouraging mails sent by innumerable people.

Mr. Bagwan Singh of NEWS 7 channel has showered HUGE Honour on me with an unbelievable gesture of telecasting my interview under the program PESUM THALAIMAI. He has been following my forecasts for several years.

I also take this opportunity to Thank each and everyone who supported me in my research irrespective of my forecasting success rate. I sincerely convey to each and everyone who started following my Forecast in the web, that I am only a NOVICE with limited skills and trying my hand on a HUGE RESEARCH. Please don’t expect 100% accuracy in my Forecasts as I am yet to get hold of important data and also trying to figure out the complexities in the Solar system and the Zodiac. The reasonable percentage of accuracy of my 2015 Forecast resulted in HUGE recognition especially from general public, highly educated scholars and heads of big industrial units. I am humbled and consider it as a Blessing by the gesture of SRI MURALIDHARASWAMIJI for having published an interview about my research work in his website (

I have split my forecast for 2016-17 in to three parts (1) WEATHER FORECAST, (2) EARTHQUAKE FORECAST and (3) Atlantic and Pacific Hurricane/Typhoon Forecast.

(But during the above period (25-01-’16 to 26-03-’16)Severe flooding due to heavy to very heavy rainfall will cause losses to life and property in Europe, Australia, Indonesia, Prussia, countries in Africa below the equator and countries in south America between tropic of Capricorn and the equator.
