Lal Kitab was written by renowned astrologer Pt. Rupchand Joshi. However, it would be more accurate to say that he acted like a medium to let the divine wisdom of Lal Kitab flow through his being, so that it can help humanity. Lal Kitab is not just a single book as common people think it to be. There are five books written by Pt. Roopchand Joshi, which are collectively known as “Lal Kitab”. These books came into existence during 1939 and 1952.
The story of Lal Kitab coming into written format is very interesting too. According to Pt. Joshi, “One night, a divine power appeared to me in my dream and told me that I was to be taught this godly knowledge. The next morning, something made me pick up a pencil and a notebook and my fingers started writing what was discussed the night before. I tried to resist it, but it was of no avail. All during my leave, everyday this ‘exercise’ continued. I would be almost in a semi-conscious state. It was scary. And, I could not take my attention off this… I am glad that He chose me to help the fellow beings.”
Lal Kitab remedies, unlike the most of other remedies prescribed by different astrological systems, are very effective and quick in yielding results. Indeed, Lalkitab is a system of astrology that emphasizes on the remedial measures most and this approach makes Lal Kitab a practical and useful for masses. Lal Kitab remedies are so efficient that it can make circumstances take a 180 degree turn and flood the native with positivity.
Lalkitab remedies have such pragmatic approach that even slight changes made in everyday activities can produce desired results, e.g. wearing cleaned and ironed cloths can influence Venus to give positive effect. Similarly, if Mars is not giving good results, donating sindoor to Lord Hanuman and fasting on Tuesdays can do the trick. One need not go out of the way in order to benefit through Lal Kitab remedies, rather simple approach of Lal Kitab wisdom would prove to be beneficial.
There is a lot of misconception about the original language of Lal Kitab. Some people spread this fallacy that Lal Kitab is an ancient Sanskrit text that somehow lost and found in Persia after centuries. From there, it was brought back to India and written in Urdu. People are propagating this theory, albeit there is no proof of it. Similarly, there is yet another theory that says the system of Lalkitab was widely practiced in the region of Himachal in India. But this hypothesis seems to be based on imaginative thinking rather than factual evidences, because no such system has been found in aforementioned area.
Pt. Rupchand Joshi wrote Lal Kitab in Urdu, because Urdu was the language of common people at that time, i.e. during late 30s. He wanted this wisdom to reach masses, so that it can help mankind on a wide scale. Most of the text of Hindu astrology is in Sanskrit and it is nearly extinct in practical sense in modern times. Lal Kitab was an effort to break this jinx and relinquish the divine wisdom from chosen few to make it accessible for all and sundry. Bountiful of Punjabi words have also been used in Lal Kitab along with some Persian and Arabic words, where they were necessary.
However, Hindi started to become predominant and replaced Urdu after the late 30s as Indian freedom struggle gain momentum. Slowly, the need of Hindi translation of Lal Kitab intensified. Therefore, various Hindi translations and transliterations of original Lal Kitab came into light keeping the requirement of public in mind, and they are more prevalent these days.
In the recent times, more and more astrologers adopted new technology in order to bypass the mathematical portion that can be calculated more accurately by modern-day computers. Lal Kitab has garnered staggering interest amongst astrologers and masses alike. Its increasing demand forced various companies to include LalKitab system in their astrological software.
