Varanasi, the holy city of India, is also known by the name of Kashi and Benaras. Kashi, the city of Moksha for Hindus this was the first spot where civilization began thousands of years ago and this will be the only spot spared at the time of Maha Pralay, the great mythical floods.

That night I had a rare vision. In the great stillness of the night, the stars look silently down on me, and I am standing at the edge of the Bay of Bengal with closed eyes, I hear the wind rustling, and I have a clear vision of the vast sea. In my vision sea overflows, the shores that sink in the water, I seem to be moving with the waves, sea is milky white, out of control and unruly, its shallow water rise and fall, hissing roaring. Slowly stars disappear clouds turn gray and dark Inky tones. Wind grew stronger as huge wave almost mountain high came rushing down from far; nothing was visible to the eye. Just sea waves that kept going higher and higher, and I was standing in the middle of the sea now when I heard Maa talking to me Shiva will be coming soon chant Om Namah Shivaya repeatedly I heard the sound of chanting Om Namah Shivaya.

I could hear, but I was no longer there I had become one with the waves that vision was like a different world for me. In a despair and emotional state at the vision, I spent the night in tears and prayers to Lord Shiva. How shall I describe that overwhelming vision?!??? I felt earth and Sea had become one, and water was everywhere, there no earth left. This vision plunged me into a reverie so despairing and frightful that even now, when the vision is over, I shuddered to reflect on it. My bottom lip quivered and big tears rolled down my cheeks. However, one glance at the hotel calendar made me shiver with fear of unknown (Pralaya) it is 21-02-2004 and the grand total is once again the master number 11. I stayed awake frightened until the clock showed 5.00 a.m. In futile attempts I tried hard to get some sleep, nonetheless, I was unable to keep my eyes shut. I ordered some tea from room service and came out to the balcony to get some fresh breeze. Nandi too woke up and came out.

What happened Moh, why are you up so early. I had a vision Nandi, I feel really frightened , my fear about Mahapralya will definably come true. Remember I had a similar vision at U.S. This vision slightly differed from the last one; today I saw the mountain like sea waves. And I was chanting Om Namah Shivay loudly and telling everyone chant Om Namah Shivay Shiva is coming Nandi, I dont know what my connection is with Shiva?

I really dont know Moh, why all this is happening only to you.

I am awestruck what number 11 stands for, twin tower was also 11 they looked like 11, the planes which struck the twin tower as well were two in the number again 11 and the date 9/11, this is uncanny. Todays total is 11 too Moh. I know 11 numbers is also a water number, so theres something connected with what is going to happen in future perhaps a calamity and that will happen through water. Yes I know that something is connected with this number but what it is and how I am connected to this karmic number 11, I have not a clue. Is it about me and Gaurang? Two twin souls just like Ardhanareshwar half and half, half woman (Goddess Parvati) half man (God Shiva). Nandi is this sign that the time for equal balance on earth has arrived it is the time to share the entire burden half and half and to unite all the split souls to completion. Are ending times near? Will my fear really come? true? It is that time on earth when all men and women must find their other half to become Ardhanareshwar.

I know there is a deep mystery behind this Master number 11. I read in a book the other day that number for Lord Vishnu is 10, as his avatars are ten and number for the Lord Shiva is 11, since he has taken 11 avatars. 11 the master number is the number of Shiva the lord of destruction. Destruction is inevitable Nandi, it is also necessary now with the regression of morals. I think the seed of this was planted in the nature of things quite a while ago.

Can you hear the footsteps of death?

I can, I feel it all the time.

Moh please, I feel frightened when I see you talking like this.

Nandi I strongly sense it, and, even if I try to tell the world they wouldnt agree, they would call me insane just like my family and thats the reason I dont tell anyone what I feel except you. One day people will know, but it will be too late by then. The number 11 is connected with the destroyer Shiva and do you know Shiva is the Allah of Muslims. No, how can that be? Nandi during one of my Navratra when I was troubled to see the plight of women in Islam, I was given this knowledge by Maa. Muslims worship the black stone at Kaaba which is a form of Linga Shiva is the oldest the unborn wild God nirgun nirakaar. He is worshiped as a linga. For Muslims crescent moon is auspicious and crescent moon sits on the crown of Shiva. I know Nandi Shiva is coming, and if he is going to come to this earth, you know what that meant D.e.s.t.r.u.c.t.i.o.n. If Shiva comes, Pralay is necessary, ,

it is the time of Twin souls man+woman together like true lovers will make Holy Kama Sutra.

For the days after the frightful yet an emotional vision I tried hard to figure the mystery of karmic number 11 and its deep connection with Lord Shiva.
