Dear Atul ji,

Thank you for your comments and also for your encouragement. A friend of mine has sent a cover design (frankly I am not good at these things) including both the front and back pages. Please see and check suitability.

Thanks again.

TKC

Hello TKC ji,

I am sorry for replying late. I was in vrindavan hence was not able to access the internet.

Your book is really very good and I had created a PDF ebook. I am uploading the file here. Please have a look and tell if you want to make any changes.

I request members of the forum to please read the book and tell us if there is any mistake or if there is any suggestion.

Sorry again for replying late
Regards

Dear Atul ji,

Read the book. Following are the suggestions:

1. There is an offset of 2 pages between the page numbers indicated in the contents page and the actual page number of the topic in the book. May be the numbers given to the cover pages can be removed so that the offset gets removed.

2. The captions in the figures appear blurred. I feel this is due to the software conversion and I do not have any suggestions for improvement here.

Otherwise, the book has come out correctly. Thank you once again.

TKC

respected TKC sir,
here i am posting 2 comments from my pakistan based friend.

Hi Rajesh,

How are you? Hope you had a nice weekend. I was just reading the Astronomy book uploaded by you. I must say, it is a very well written book. Explains a lot about astronomy and the terms that are used in it, in a simple way.

I just wanted to mention a few things:
-On page 34 it is written "We now our attention to the Moon." I think your friend forgot to write "We now shift our...",
-figure 25 was a bit hard for me to figure out. It's a bit small in comparison to all the lines mentioned. A slightly larger figure would imo give for a better understanding.
-But coming to the main point for which I actually mailed you, figure 28 and 29 were not so clear to me. I wasn't able to figure out how a annular solar eclipse would be formed. To me both the images, the sunrays and the amount of rays that were blocked by the moon in both pictures, looked the same. The images on this website regarding total and annular eclipse were a bit more clear to me. http://www.sems.und.edu/index_SolarEclipse.php

I really don't mean to be ungrateful or picky, but I just thought of giving you some feedback on the book that I read so far, before I forgot these points. Perhaps you will find them usefull, if not, please do ignore them.

Thank you again for uploading the book.

regards, zara

Hi Rajesh,

Sorry for my late reply, been a bit busy. I will surely pass any additional comments which I have, if any because he really wrote a good piece, for your friend. How about convincing him to write something about indian mythologie, creation of planets and their relationships with each other as well? Would be a complete series of basic syllabi for lovers of astrology, right?

I'm really not an astrologer, but just somebody who wants to understand a few principles of astrology, and if possible, a bit more. But I will surely visit the other forum as well. Thank you.

Well, it is time for a well deserved weekend again. Wish you lots of fun with your family.

regards, zara
