  1. According to news reports , Delhi-NCR was jolted by a medium intensity 4.6 magnitude earthquake in the night of 29 May , 2020. Its epicenter is reported to be at nearby Rohtak in Haryana. No untoward happening has been reported. In this context , it may be apt to refer readers to the related predictive alert in this Vedic astrology writer’s article – “ Predictions for coming year 2020 by kushal kumar” – published last year 2019 on 10 October at theindiapost.com/articles/predictions-for-coming-year-2020-by-kushal-kumar/.
    Through the said article , Delhi-NCR and nearby areas have been alerted to take more care and appropriate strategy against earthquake during May-June , 2020. It seems the alert has been meaningful. During the soon coming month of June , 2020 , it may be alright to be alert on 11 to 13 June and 21 to 22 June , though the month June looks to be calling for more care and appropriate strategy against quake and other health hazards as well while easily digestible food and good amount of water can be of help. Avoid haste , anger and impulse while taking decision or responding to situations.
