Budh Mahadasha

Budh Mahadasha & The Rise Of Subrata Roy & The Sahara Pariwar

Budh Mahadasha is an excellent period for business, goes the popular saying in astrology as Mercury is the planet of business. Proving this point correct is the life story of Subrata Roy, the man who founded the business conglomerate Sahara India Pariwar. The life of Subrata Roy is nothing short of a movie. He rose to fame at an exceptional pace and within a decade he was amongst the richest businessmen in the country. From Real estate, finance, to tourism and hospitality, the Sahara Group had its fingers dipped in many pies. It certainly makes people wonder what was it in his horoscope that helped him excel in business so quickly. Therefore we, a bunch of astrology enthusiasts at AstroSage decided to dive deep into the depths of his horoscope to find the answer. Here we present his horoscope:

Presence Of A Strong ‘Dhan Yoga’ A Digbali Sun Wrote The Success Story Of Subrata Roy

A Sneak Peak Into The Rise  Fall Of Sahara Group  Its Head

Subrata Roy was a Leo ascendant with Sun placed in the 10th house of career, fame and power. He had it all in his kitty for sure. There was also a strong ‘ Dhan Yoga’ in his horoscope with Mercury being the lord of the 2nd and the 11th house and placed in the 11th house in Gemini (Own sign). As we can see Mercury is Conjunct with Venus, the 10th house lord in the 11th house. This gives rise to another rajyoga in his horoscope. And for sure a person cannot own assets worth 50 million without these yogas in their horoscope. Subrata Roy took control of a dying finance company Sahara Finance in 1978 and the rest is history. His Budh Mahadasha started in the year 1968, wherein he tried his hands in multiple small businesses but he did not feel right about those. Finally in 1978 he started the Sahara India Pariwar and this time he succeeded in creating a business empire which was only a dream for many. Sahara India grew manifold in a short period of time and by the time his Budh Mahadasha ended in 1985, Sahara India was already at its peak.

Budh Mahadasha Unleashes The Power Of Planet Mercury in Subrata Roy’s Horoscope

During the Budh Mahadasha, Subrata Roy expanded his business empire in many fields and saw instant success everywhere. The conglomerate’s flagship was Sahara India Financial Corp Ltd, Roy’s para-banking venture where he would sometimes take deposits as low as Rs 1 a day. The customers included small investors, such as rickshaw-pullers and tea stall owners, who invested money and were promised an assured income in return. Mercury as we know is a fast moving planet and rules over the financial matters in a person’s horoscope and can give magical results during its time period. It is a planet that can make an individual rise in business quickly and write your success story in golden letters. This is exactly what it did for Subrata Roy.

The Slow Downfall Of The Sahara Group As Saturn Comes Into Picture

Everything was moving smoothly and Subrata Roy was enjoying the fame and name he was getting through his various business ventures. He went on to become the formidable founder of the Sahara India Pariwar, which operated businesses such as Aamby Valley City, Sahara Movie Studios, Air Sahara and Filmy, a journey that started during the Budh Mahadasha. But things started moving downhill for the Sahara Pariwar when Sebi conducted some investigations as part of a regular enquiry and what followed brought about the slow downfall of the giant business conglomerate during the Venus Mahadasha and Saturn Antardasha in 2009. Sebi ordered the Sahara Group to return Rs. 24,000 crore back to over 30 million individuals that it had traded money from illegally.

Here we see that Saturn is the 6th house lord (Court, legal matters, etc) and placed in the 12th house of (Jail and exile) along with Moon, the lord of the 12th house forming the Vish Yoga. Running under the Mahadasha of Venus, even the 3rd house was activated. All the three negative houses being activated at once proved to be a debacle for the business tycoon. Subrata Roy was sent to jail in 2014 by the honorable Supreme Court only to be let out on parole. He was again sent to jail after some time. Subrata Roy breathed his last on 14th November, 2023 at the age of 75.
