To turn commercial space into a successful venture, follow principles of Vaastu. Commercial Vaastu brings profit and prosperity to business or office.

For example, gadgets like power points, power sockets, transformers, generators, lifts, AC units, fire extinguishers etc. should be either on West or South side.

Whenever utility, toilets or staircases are placed in North-East, buildings tend to lose their charm in a short time.

Some tips to follow Vaastu for Commercial Spaces:

» Keep your main entrance much wider for office space
» For Jewellery showroom or shop, height of the main door has to be higher than other doors
» Avoid Black, Brown, Green and Purple. Other colours are good depending on the type of business
» Always let your logo be seen prominently
» Keep working space clean and free of litter
» Avoid cluttering of cash box or storing raw materials to bring good luck.
» Keep fresh flowers at the place of worship or at entrance for positive energy
» A smiling staff with a good uniform in good colours will add to Vaastu strength of the building
» Cashier must face North or East in the shop or commercial space (restaurant / medical shop) to make profit in sales grow

Follow Vaastu at whatever level you can. It takes you further towards success.

INCREDIBLE LITTLE RANN

For a casual visitor or avid bird watcher the Little Rann of Kutch fascinates as a birding paradise. Indeed a birding paradise with large flocks of larks, and other ground dwelling birds like sandgrouse, coursers, plovers, chats, warblers, babblers, shrikes and the houbara bustard.

The best birding is at lakes and marshes in and around the Rann where birds gather during October to March. In these months demoiselle and common cranes are seen in incredibly large numbers. The wetlands equally attract flamingos, pelicans, storks, ibises, spoonbill, a variety of ducks and other waterfowl.

The Rann also hunting ground for birds of prey like raptors, short-toed eagle, Aquila eagle, six species of falcon, buzzards and three species of harrier. It is one of the few places where harriers can be seen roosting on open-ground at night.

Unique Indian Wild Ass or ‘Gudkhur’ is what Little Rann is really known for. These asses chestnut brown in colour reach high speeds galloping across the Rann and usually move in small herds. For these animals ‘bets’ or islands on the ancient sea bed covered with grass and scrub provide sustenance.

These bets support other wildlife like the blackbuck (Indian antelope), Nilgai or blue bull (India’s largest antelope) and the graceful Chinkara (Indian gazelle). One can also spot smaller mammals like hares, gerbil’s and hedgehogs, and reptiles like spiny tailed lizard, monitor, red and common sand boa, saw-scaled viper, cobra, dhaman (Indian rat snake).

Happy Memories

On the vast shining expanse there are the Indian wolves, foxes, jackals, jungle cats, and a few hyenas all of which are endangered species.

No wonder for tourists visiting Gujarat seeing these beautiful Nilgais, the Indian wolf, the pelicans, the desert fox, greater flamingoes, larks, the Indian vulture, and wild asses at Little Rann have happy memories to cherish after going home.

WATER BODIES
AT HOME

“The best direction for a water body is the North, Northeast or East.”

Water not only increases aesthetic value but also acts as an energy generator and thus has a rather powerful influence on Vaastu. A water body well placed will bring in peace and prosperity and if overlooked can bring in lot of trauma. It will bring either strong positive or strong negative results to inhabitants and thus it is important to make sure it is placed according to the science of Vaastu.

There are two aspects that determine Vaastu of water:
1. Placement
2. Direction of Flow

This piece determines the best Placement for Water Bodies.

Swimming Pools: An ideal location for swimming pool is North East or North of Northeast.

Ponds or Fountains: Just like Swimming Pools, Ponds and Fountains too must be in the North East or North of Northeast directions. Water flowing/water fountain from north to east is very good.

Underground Water Tanks: North, Northeast and East directions work best for these. If the tanks are above ground level, you may place them in the South, South West or South East directions.

Misc.: Septic Tanks and the flow of sewer systems should be towards North West. The flow of rain or fresh water should be towards North East. The best location for drinking water is the north east of the kitchen. Overhead water tanks should be in the Southwest corner of the terrace preferably in the West of Southwest.

Note: You must avoid placing any water bodies in the South, Southwest or West directions as they lead to overall financial problems and health hazards for the head of the family.

BOUNDARY WALLS

READ all about boundary walls and extensions or addition of space to existing plots and also the topography of the plots in this month’s column.

• It is perfectly good to have all four sides of boundary walls of the same height.

• But avoid making north and east walls taller than south and west walls. The west and south walls must be more in height as this leads to overall prosperity and peace of the inmates.

• The extensions to plots must be done with utmost caution. Extension in north, east or northeast are considered very auspicious. But doing so in the west, south or southwest will lead to financial losses and ill health for the house owner.

• Also while making an outhouse in the plot be careful.

• The site must have either a uniform levelled ground or if one wants to have different levels one has to see that the site is higher in the south, west or south west, and the north, east and northeast must be lower.

VAASTU TIPS

From this month, we plan doing a series of articles on ‘ready reckoner’ on Vaastu. They will be simple to understand and supported by self-explanatory sketches. Here’s our first one on site excavation and foundation stone, the Bhoomi Puja.

VAASTU TIPS

THE BUILDING IS ONLY AS TALL AS THE FOUNDATION IS STRONG ENOUGH TO BUILD ON!

EARLY FOUNDATION
The excavation should commence from the North East of the site. The foundation stone must be laid at the South West. These measures will ensure timely completion of the site and thus must be followed carefully.

The compound wall should be built from the South West first going towards the East followed by the North.

ENTRANCES
Entrances – apart from being the first impression of your house – also have different significances and implications. Every direction has is negative and positive in its own way. It ultimately rests upon us on how to use them for our benefit.

• The North Entrance is considered the best.
• A Door at the North or North East is beneficial for the health and prosperity of the female residents.
• A Door at the West or North West brings fame and prestige.
• Entrances at the East or South East or the South or West are considered okay.
• They do not have any negative impacts. North or North West, South or South West and East or South East are considered inauspicious as they bring ill health, financial losses and overall downfall of the inmates.
• An entrance or gate in the West or South West may be fatal.
