On Fri 28th Dec 2013 , Asst Producer Mr Raghu from Andhra Jyothi ‘s Telugu TV channel ABN TV , invited me for doing a special show on Tarot Predictions for 2013. I was very excited but then immediately was concerned about language. ABN TV being local Telugu channel would need a Telegu speaking person. I expressed my concern to the creative directive Ms Sudha and she said she would be having an anchor who would translate it accordingly.
They wanted me to come the very next day but somehow I got one more day to arrange for items and prepare. I had long weekend coming up and I had some pre-planned stuffs for 4 days , watching movie daily , my friend’s Bday plans for 30th Dec , New year party plans what not.
I was so tensed, I was so excited, I was so scared.
Saturday evening I went looking for a crystal ball. Crystals I thought they would be nice props… found none. I didn’t even find good thick candles. Sunday morning tired after coming back from late night party, had an impromptu guest for overnight stay – a friend who wanted me to do PLR for her. Since I was so tired I just did Tarot reading for her. By the time we slept it was too late. I woke up tensed, immediately opened my laptop and started searching for what other were saying for 2013 predictions. I was so tensed what to wear, what shoes…I thought I would get artificial nails done as focus would be on my hands and didn’t find one parlor in Hyderabad ( I called 10-15 parlors ) . Shooting was scheduled for evening 3 pm and by noon I was freaking out. Picked a fight with Mom… called Dad complaining about her and what not
Eventually I calmed down , discussed how to do Tarot for different celebrity types – Politicians, Actors, Sports person etc… She was giving me so much information. integration of Tarot and Astrology, suggestion of crystals based on Sun Signs and what not and I was again scared. Only after some “Morale” boosting from my dear friend and Mom I was ready to go.
Reached the venue, met Raghu gentle soul , met producer…got make-up touch up done, met the crew, Mr Phani the anchor… only when I reached the set I realized the table was too small !! Boom next two hours went by to figure out a table, everything had to rearranged , cameras , lights , there is so much technicality.
By the time we started I was so exhausted. Thank God we munched on masala dosa before hand else we would have starved too.
I also got to know all the celebrity of whom I had to do the Tarot Reading, were actually Politicians. I got so scared, I called my mother immediately concerned about what if they tell me to predict 2014 election on television. Andhra Pradesh is on a crucial stage where there are talk of separate Telengana sate , what if they tell me to predict that. I can do it but not on television please. My mom gave me some professional tips and I was finally ready.
Then I did tarot for 12 Sun Signs some 5 political leaders , Andhra Pradesh as state and India as country. It went well, I would post the details about the predictions in my next post along with some pictures.
