Go on, admit it, you probably take a sneaky peak at your horoscope in the newspaper now and then, out of idle curiosity of course.

In India, a country legendarily associated with mysticism, millions live their daily life by what the stars dictate. Rituals to commemorate births and deaths - the bookmarks of our lives - only take place at auspicious times of the day and month. Marriages are often nixed, no matter how in love a couple may be, if the horoscopes don't match.
