Q I recently renovated my 3BHK apartment in Delhi. Now we are planning to build an overhead water tank. Kindly suggest if south-east direction is suitable for the purpose?
Rajesh Sisodiya, Delhi
Water tank should be built in the south, southwest or west direction as it represents weight. If you want to build water tank in south-east direction then it will surely be a vastu defect. No worries there is a remedy, kindly put two silver made bricks of 60 grams each in the tank. This will cease the vastu defect of the tank which is placed in south-east direction.
Q Since last six years I am living in a house which is situated before T-point. After shifting here many problems came up regularly. Kindly suggest what should I do?
Joseph Phillip, Faridabad
I am not getting the actual idea of your house. It seems that more over your house is situated in south or west facing direction. It would be better if you seek the help of a professional vastu consultant. If possible, change the direction of entrance in the house.
Q Currently I am living in my father’s house, and was thinking to renovate or reconstruct the house to improve vastu condition. Kindly let me know how to do the needful for peaceful living?
Pardeep Solanki, Shirdi
If you want to make changes in already constructed portion then you should start from the northeast direction. And if you are planning to reconstruct the house then you may start from southwest direction. North-east center (Brahma Sathan) and southwest are the most sensitive directions. While constructing or reconstructing remember stairs, kitchen and toilet should be avoided in North- East. Adding on, toilet and worship place should be avoided in south-west. Do not keep south-west open. Ignoring above mentioned directions can cause financial hurdles as well as it can create problems for children. It is always a wise decision to hire the services of a professional vastu consultant before starting construction or reconstruction.
Q I hold a very senior position in a reputed organisation, having good income but still not able to clear my home loan and also facing problems in completing the construction of the house. I want to know when will I be able to clear house loans and complete the construction?
Dheeraj Sharma, Amritsar
Facing hurdles in completion of home shows that the construction did not start at an auspicious time. Direction of the home should also be kept in mind while starting the construction. Anyway forget what has happened. For remedy, dig a pit of 2 ¼ in north-east of the house and put a pitcher of water there. After this you can fill the pit. Hope this will help you overcome your problems.
Q We are three brothers and living in a joint family. Since very long we are not happy living with each other and because of this I am not able to concentrate on my business. It will be very kind of you if you could give some suggestions to make ours a harmonious household?
Amrit Jain, Gurgaon
I think your north part of the house is higher than rest of the area or your kitchen is situated in this part, in most cases this causes financial crises. As far as the quarrels among family members are concerned, you should check whether your house is properly cleaned or not. Make sure that no waste material and empty boxes are kept in the house, not even any broken glasses should be there. Arrange your house well. If you want to get good results go for a vastu shanti pooja.
