A blunt knife or rusted knife can't be useful for anything just for the sake we call it as the knife similar to PayTM series or Sachin or Virat records.

Let us go slightly back in the origin of the various areas of knowledge and their authenticity. As per the eeducation and progress of the science many subjects like physics, chemistry, mathematics, botany, zoology, astronomy, geology, biology, medical science, robotics, computers etc are developed and are still developing backed by the logic and scientific research.
Now coming to the other knowledge areas like astrology, horoscope, vastu Shastra, palmistry, homeopathy etc their origin is more empirical and mythological in nature and they give varied statistcal results which are difficult to map even with the existing mean, median and sigma methods of statistics.
It is surprising that the latter category of knowledge areas is accepted and followed by a large number of people in the world and they will not agree with you if you claim that only the former category is knowledge and rest is absurd proposition.
The second category of knowledge is linked to our culture, heritage, beliefs and faith rather than facts or logic. So people will be hurt if they are not allowed to follow those beliefs.
Today when someone falls ill in family he takes the allopathic medicine but at the same time family members go to their place of worship and pray God for the well being. So this duality will remain their and people will follow them religiously.
Knowledge is power.
So even if it is not a science there is no harm in following it for the well being and peace of our dwelling units. There are many things like knowledge from Gita, yoga, meditation etc which are giving good results in the life of people and some of them are immensely benefitted.
Thoughts exchanged is knowledge gained.
If ISC doesn't want to encourage the Astrological belief and delete/lock the threads relating to Astrology, how ISC is permitting the members to discuss Vasthu Saasthra which is also based on astrology. Vasthu sasthra is related to the directions and its respective deities. Does ISC encourage Vasthu Sastra which is also a belief? O' ISC, we cannot understand what you really are!
Managing Editor Vandana to note this.
No life without Sun
Coming to Vaastu Shastra, some people have immense faith in it. I know of people who have renovated their homes, broken down walls and constructed new entrances, so their house is Vaastu compliant. Though I believe such drastic renovation is not necessary and the problems in construction can be remedied through simple actions, like lighting a 'diya' in a particular direction or placing a water fountain in another direction etc.
If we can change the direction of our lives by making small changes in our homes or in the direction that we place our head when we sleep, then why are people not prosperous? Why do they struggle with problems? Why do they live hand-to-mouth? Why does disease afflict them? Why doesn't changing the position of the bed create a windfall!
I have a few laughing Buddha statuettes – they were gifted to me. I also have a crystal turtle that came free with an online purchase, I have small water fountains and had bamboo plants too – but I use them as décor pieces and not to bring in luck.

Similarly when we construct a house we want to have decent looking house with good ventilation and good breeze and light. We will cook, we will eat, we will sleep and we will invite our guest who are coming to our house. Basing on the activity to be carried out we will decide which corner is convenient for that particular activity. People of olden days studied all these issues and come out with a some points and those points are known as vastu points.
My understanding of vastu is that and if we follow this we will have a pleasant stay in the house. It is not a superstition and there is a scientific reasoning for each rule. But without understanding that we may feel vastu is a myth.
Once in our office, (as our MD interested in the vastu etc.,)suggested our liaison officer to have opinion of a vastu specialist over our factory building (it was about 2.25 acres). According to his suggestion our Liaison Officer did some changes in the factory and office with the approval from MD. Lastly they came to our room (where I and my senior occupied in one room) and told my senior about the vastu's visit to the factory on the previous day(sunday) and his suggestions. Accordingly all changes have been made and lastly the Liaison officer told my senior to sit in one direction and me to the other direction. My senior told jovially,'OKey sir agreed, but donot send us out as vastu denied us.'.Our liaison officer and vastu laughed louder.
