Hilarious! And serves the ex-president right for believing in any quack.

Why blame him alone? Many Indian politicians too are huge patrons of astrologers and soothsayers. Even highly educated ones like Manmohan Singh, no less.

So the SL politicos are not too different after all.

The "Iron Lady" was also not different from our sub continental politicians.

Oh absolutely - not blaming him alone. All those who believe in Vaastu/ Numerology/ Astrologers etc. - are doomed to a life of blind beliefs/ ignorance - and conveniently handing over their cash to these "practitioners"...

In addition - there's no business like the god business!
