Ramachandra Guha flays Indian cricket

Like a memorable cameo innings, historian Ramachandra Guha's stint with the committee of administrators (CoA) has proved to be short but impactful. Guha's resignation letter, which became public on Friday (June 2), is a scathing indictment of inaction over rampant conflicts of interest, a "superstar culture gone berserk", callous treatment of domestic players, and "extremely insensitive and unprofessional" handling of Team India coach Anil Kumble, among other issues.

Guha came down heavily on stalwarts of Indian cricket in his letter. "The superstar culture that afflicts BCCI means that the more famous the player, the more leeway he is allowed in violating norms and procedures," he wrote. June 3

Ramachandra Guha (born 29 April 1958) is an Indian historian and writer whose research interests include politics and cricket history. He was appointed to BCCI's panel of administrators by the Supreme Court of India on 30 January 2017.

Since his birth time is not available we will use a birthchart drawn for noon on 29 April 1958 which is good enough for our purpose here. The most noticeable feature is a Sun-Uranus square both in hard aspect to Saturn.

It is natural for those born under the Sun- Uranus aspects to question tradition. These are individualists. They naturally rebel against that which is established. It doesn’t mean that they consistently break all the rules, but they definitely do question some of the rules, especially those that simply don’t make much sense to them. The hard aspects to Saturn increases the chances of a conflict with authority.

Guha who has just turned 59 is having his second Saturn return. In the last few days transit Mars [25ge] formed an opposition to his radix and transit Saturn [25sa].

Mars square/opposition Saturn This is a time in which you are especially sensitive to the limitations or blocks in your path, which can point to frustration or stress. You may be especially impatient with protocol, red tape, traditional methods, superiors, and rules that seem oppressive.
