Is Vaasthu a scientific concept?Some two decades ago, there was a huge interest in what is called "Vaasthu". This was supposed to be an ancient belief that had some scientific basis, in as much as it referred to the particular location of the location of the kitchen, the bedroom and so on.
Even when it was at its peak, there were dissenting opinions about it. The Vaasthu fever reached a big pitch, with many builders, particularly in parts of South India, claiming that their apartments confirmed to "Vaasthu" requirements.
The concept went out of big notice for a while. But it is back again in so many places. What exactly is it? Is it based on science?
There are hundreds of apartments coming up in Chennai, for example, where the entire construction is also inclusive of the various interior design details. All these seem to be highly westernized, though there are apartments costing more than four crore rupees now.
What is the truth behind Vaasthu?
