eulogy for Elvis Presley, delivered by POTUS-39 Talking Peace 1924- Jimmy Carter

" Elvis Presley's death deprives our country of a part of itself.

He was unique and irreplaceable. More than 20 years ago, he burst upon the scene with an impact that was unprecedented and will probably never be equaled.

His music and his personality, fusing the styles of white country and black rhythm and blues, permanently changed the face of American popular culture.

His following was immense, and he was a symbol to people the world over of the vitality, rebelliousness, and good humor of his country."

Masculine Nativities

Jyeṣṭha - Antares - Kita - Thrikketta

BPL commentary

For Jyeṣṭha births of a masculine valence, the condition of conversational, discursive, explanatory, instructional, argumentative, commercializing, evangelical Kumara may considerably affect the outcome.

For those born into the Budha-ruled paradigm of Varta, siblings, cousins, schoolmates, bandmates, team-mates, entourage, ensemble, neighbors, managers, cohort, coterie, collaborative group, publishers, messengers, merchants, commercial agents, reporters, writers, scripts, plans, schedules, instructions, radio-television-internet, news-media, conferences, committees, discussions, travel itineraries, and texts may be especially influential.

Instructional guidance is provided by emissaries from the civilizations of Antares. Their purpose is to communicate a forceful, dynamic, healing regeneration cycle via sexual energy transfer and discovery of secrets.

Penetrating Communications

[Budha] -ruled Jyeṣṭha gentlemen are typically outspoken, incisive and decisive, competitive, descriptive, and energetic communicators. Thrikketta-born maintain a deep sense of mental seniority. Capable writers, Ketta men are quick-witted and skilled in handcraft. Articulate and pro-active to the point of verbal aggression, they find a ready audience on topics of a mysterious, apocryphal, hidden, or forbidden nature.

Thriketta fellows may be handlers of secrets of a sexual, psychological, political, military, engineering, or financial nature.

Masters of verbal control and manipulation, Zakra chaps are often found in politics. Due to the influence of nakshatra-pati Budha, often Jyeṣṭha -born use words to manage an ever-transforming experience of power. In the process of channeling these mysterious and compelling kinetic energies, Thriketta men may engage in sexual intrigue and dangerous liaisons. Ketta-born are natural psychologists. Jyestha can become transformative healers when their sexual energy consciousness evolves.

Themes of verbal contest, sexual energy transfer, and healing discovery may contextualize Jyeṣṭha 's terrestrial experience. Also applicable to Chandra in Jyeṣṭha - Antares

QUOTATION from Shil-Ponde. (1939). Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra .p 85

" A dark and sensitive nature ...

  • superficially religious

  • but are hypocrites at heart.

On the surface they are respectable, law abiding citizens, ostensible church-goers,

  • but secretly their morals are loose

  • and their tempers passionate.

Smooth, oily, and suave to all appearances,

  • they carry in their hearts schemes and thoughts which might not stand the light of day."


Teenage Elvis in 1950's, before his manager convinced EP to wear black hair dye


" American pop singer, one of the most famous entertainers in modern history whose notoriety became worldwide. With a carnal sneer and a Memphis bop-suit, he swiveled across the stage on hot-wired legs.

He had 107 top-40 hits (more than twice the total of the Beatles) and 41 gold LPs, the most successful recording artist ever .

EP's persona touched billions of fans, and years after his death, he is still an icon with a huge following. His records continue to sell at a $7 million-per-year clip, his 33 films still spin off the racks of video stores, and some 150 licensed products bearing his name or image account for $50 million in retail sales annually. His fans still visit his Memphis home, Graceland."

BPL comments

Elvis and Religious Music

EP served as a powerful icon of American social change by integrating into a single dynamic personal music-and-dance style, the historic African rhythms of southern American blacks with the Appalachian rhythms of southern Bible-Belt whites.

As well, EP conjoined the sacred and secular music strands of rural Christian culture (Ketu-9 disregard for doctrinal boundaries). His music set a cultural precedent for the USA Civil Rights movement which was soon to be spearheaded by USA Civil Rights 1929-1968 Rev. Martin Luther King


EP's parents-to-be in Tupelo Mississippi, in the Depression Year of 1933. EP's 20-year-old mom worked in a garment factory. His dad was a 17 year old sharecropper who was convicted of bank forgery and served 18 months in prison during EP's childhood.


Elvis in the Whitehouse approximately 1972, hanging out with POTUS-37 Watergate 1913-1994 Richard Nixon. Nixon was an accomplished pianist and music aficionado with a love of creative performance. He met Pat at a community theatre singing audition.

Elvis and Drugs

" .. he always carried a kit of medications that included Dexedrine, Percodan, Seconal, Nembutal, $10,000 in cash, his drivers license, makeup, jewelry, police badges and some pictures."

quoted from,_Elvis

Bodyweight Crisis

"Later in life due to poor eating habits his weight soared to 250 lbs. He wrapped himself in Saran Wrap before dressing to look slimmer, but this just made it more difficult to breathe."

quoted from,_Elvis

Fatal Toxicity

"There were many prescription drugs found on the premises and in his system. The ... autopsy found EP's liver bloated and his colon to be stretched to twice its normal size, due to a buildup up of chalky white fecal matter, both signs of severe drug abuse. The toxicology report found toxic levels of codeine, Quaaludes and six other drugs in his system."

Dad = a struggling young sharecropper. Dad spent 18 months in prison during EP's childhood

EP's Dharmesha-9 Chandra activates Ketu-9 but Chandra occupies 6/8 from pitristhāna = father.

As EP's commercial success expanded, Dad became road manager of EP's entertainment entourage. Pitrikaraka Surya karmesha ++ Surya yuti vriddhi-pati Budha = Dad's engagement with EP's career (10) and EP's earnings (11)

Ketu-9 suggests a distancing behavior which causes Dad to wander.

Parents as a Team

Nishturabashi yoga, holds an awkward shad-ashtaka 6-8 angle from the absentee father-figure represented by [Ketu in classroom-9]

The parents would appear to have been troubled by harsh conditions in their own childhoods, insufficient resources in the home, and fear of social criticism (Shani-yuti-Chandra). Yet Surya-and-Chandra occupy a relative 3-11 angle, suggesting that they were friendly toward each other, cooperative on shared projects (3), and grounded deeply into their local speech values (Surya-2) and agricultural routines including worship (Chandra-4).


Surya-Pūrvāṣāḍhā = music-entertainment, often with a sacred, doctrinal element

karmesha-10 Surya-2 brought the public eye into bhava-2 music, singing, face, voice

Karakamsha = bhava-2 singing .

Dhanasthāna contains the musically entertaining charisma + center-stage dynamism Dhanus-Pūrvāṣāḍhā Surya +++ the somewhat doctrinal and mystical messaging of Uttarāṣāḍha-Dhanus Budha (8-11).

2 = speech, song, face, teeth-jaw, hair, money, food stores, hoards of all kinds, family history, historical cultural values of one's people. Elvis was famous for all of these attributes. vriddhi-pati-11 Budha-2 yuti karmesha-10 Surya is a substantial Dhanayoga which became activated during his Guru-Budha bhukti age 19


matrikaraka (mother) * garha-karaka (village)



[philosophical-doctrinal dharmesha for Vṛścika indriya-lagna]

[comforted by stable habitual friendship networks]

[culturally sensitive to fixed marketplace systems]

[needs regulated pulse of lawful associations]

[protector of the reliable old fayres and mela gatherings]

[emotionally aligned to massive local assemblies]

[environmentalist feelings attuned to atmospheric electric deva]

[anchoring mother may be schoolteacher-householder-local socialite]



[inspirational-believing Varuna-1] [navamsha Chandra-Dhanus] intuitively sensitive inspirational-guiding

  • [Chandra-Kumbha] comforted by friendship * sensitive to gridworks * needs marketplace connection
  • [Chandra in Sadachbia - Varuna] calmed by mixed networks * protectors of universal mingling * soothed by risky marketplaces * needs to make expedient social connections
  • [Chandra in classroom-4] comfort in familiar routines * calmed by caretaking * seeks continuous oscillating motion * sensitive to ethnic folkways * contented by recurrent rituals * soothed by customary habits * tranquilized by rhythmic waves * needs pulsation * nurtured by gardening * follows local pathways * feels rooted into the land * settled into home-keeping * undulating patriotism * mother may be a farmer, fisher, builder, schoolteacher, border-defender
  • [Somana-yuti-Shani] [nishturabashi yoga] Emotionally constricted * punitive parents * sensitive to class boundaries * soothed by structure * needs rigid routines * heavy maternal workload * comfortable with elders * familiar with hierarchies * fearful mother * calmed by strict rules * feels like a worker


CAREER - 10th-from-Chandra


Mom = garment factory worker, home-maker, church member

Soma is deeply oppressed by Shani in childhood home = bhava-4

  • [Somana-yuti-Shani] Generally, indicates a mother who exhibits emburdenment from a heavy workload, premature aging, and emotional blockage.
  • Chandra in 8th-from-pitristhana represents the Mother suggesting that the mother would at times become the father (which happened when the father was in prison).

Chandra occupies a shad-ashtaka 6-8 challenge-angle from both Ketu-9 (father) and Mangala-11 (Elvis) suggesting that the mother was not always in alignment with her son's father or her son

Mother = generally holds a conventional doctrinal belief paradigm = customary Chandra = Dharmesha-9

Mother would have had an absentee father or father is incoherent or ill, Ketu-9 occupies [6th-from-Chandra] ruled by Chandra. Likely both of mother's parents somewhat afflicted by poverty and illness.

HEALTH - connective tissue

EP is retrospectively considered to have suffered from a connective-tissue disease. [Somana-yuti-Shani Kumbha - skin, nerves, gridworked tissue fabric] Shani desiccates, resource-deprives, and retards growth.

In early life, the weakly connected tissues produce exceptionally loose, flexible joints, such as distinguished EP's hip-swinging dance moves. As the person matures and the tissues disconnect without rebuilding, movement becomes deeply painful. The inner surfaces such as digestive organs then lose plasticity.

His mom [Chandra] had a chronic pain disorder, and EP likely inherited the condition. It is considered to have contributed to or even primarily motivated the complex of iatrogenic over-medication which caused EP's untimely decease.

Emotions, Childhood and Vehicles

Chandra ruled by Rahu, receiving Parashari drishti of Guru-12. Expansive blessings of homes and vehicles. Elvis was known for his mansion, luxury cars, and private aircraft.

Nishturabashi yoga is somewhat neutralized by Guru-drishti but the electro-magnetic emotional issues remain.

[Shani-4] * Śaśaka Yoga * typically loyal and persistently dutiful toward the parents and the homeland.

Shani activates 3-commerce, touring ++ 4-home-culture Chandra produces a host of emotional conflicts and deep responsibility [Shani] to protect (4) the Old Ways Chandra in bhava-4 [dikbala]

Eccentric but not intellectually activated

[Chandra in Sadachbia - Varuna] calmed by mixed networks * protectors of universal mingling * soothed by risky marketplaces * needs to make expedient social connections * indicates one who is scientific and intuitive and often in connection with extraterrestrial intelligences, albeit the awareness may be socially oppressed. Elvis was famed for his occult interests but also for his perceived inability to ask for the information he sought, except by passively absorbing easy-reader books for the popular market.

MARRIAGE partnership emotional equity support expectations

[7th-from-Chandra-4] lifepartner alliance-1-of-1

  • with dramatist and businesswoman Priscilla Beaulieu
  • bhava-10 public reputation, dignity, respect, high-visibility leadership, conformity to expected behavior of a social icon
  • Simha entertainment, display, games, romantic idealism, entitlement

Since PBP's age 15, she and EP had shared a home in Memphis, TN.

Sade-Sati Marriage

EP was not monogamous and EP had no stated intention to marry. However, his career manager felt the pressure of public opinion to be mounting. In response, EP undertook the duties of legal marriage in a quickly staged hotel room ceremony. Shani-Shani svabhukti +++ dvithiya Sade-Sati

According to biographers, music manage-promoter Colonel Tom Parker issued the command for a photographed wedding ceremony to be undertaken for purpose of meeting public expectations . Orchestrated in a rented function-room of a casino hotel. the brief publicity event was attended primarily by invited press-workers from newspaper, magazine, and television media.

[7th-from-Chandra-4] = karmabhava-10. Conventional, socially beholden 10 receives drishti of Shani-Chandra-Rahu, suggesting the instrumental (Rahu-3-publicity) and obligatory [Shani] and customary [Chandra] nature of the alliance avowal.

QUOTATION from,_Elvis

  • " While in the military stationed in Germany he met future wife, teenage Priscilla Beaulieu in 1959. Following a courtly eight-year courtship, during which Presley moved her to Nashville, TN, they married on 5/01/1967, 9:41 AM, Las Vegas, NV. Their daughter Lisa Marie was born nine months later to the day, 2/01/1968, but the marriage became increasingly tumultuous. During their marriage while on tour, if Priscilla wasn't with him, Presley would ask aides to troll for girls he could spend the night with. He kept books on astrology and numerology so he would have topics of conversation."

Interpersonal compatibility and friendship * EP + PBP

Both partners' radical Chandra placements occupy Rahu-ruled nakshatra = substantial mutual understanding and friendship

PBP's Chandra-Svatika provides an emotional compatible match for EP's Chandra in Sadachbia - Varuna .Their relationship was said to have remained mutually sentimental

Still, Somana-yuti-Shani * nishturabashi yoga * produces guilt in regard to behavior that is apprehended as obligatory or required. According to the autobiographical writings of Graceland 1945- drama-homeware Priscilla Beaulieu Presley, the sexual intimacy of the union ceased within a few months of the ceremony.

A divorce dud transpire, but there was no public shaming-scandal. Marriage dignity is protected via [7th-from-Chandra-4] = karmabhava-10.


[community-connected Chandra-Kumbha] rules the indebted, adversarial, contentious, conflicted, remedy-seeking, medical, military, polluted, unbalanced, contract-breaking, disappointing, ministry-of-service [6th-from-Chandra] . For this reason, Chandra-Kumbha can be associated generally with indebtedness whether financial, emotional, or general cultural guilt

nishturabashi yoga tends to show a pattern of guilt regarding the parents, particularly the mother, toward maintaining the routines of the ethnicity, toward the ancestral rhythms and habits. One may feel required to offer protection and security to others but the sense of obligation feels restrictive and often leads to emotional distress


CAREER - 10th-from-Chandra

[10th-from-Chandra = discovering Vṛścika indriya-lagna]

Home-base - Chandra in classroom-4 [dikbala]

Chandra-4 almost invariably builds its base close to the cultural roots. Although a nationally recognized entertainer in the popular music and cinema industry, EP did not shift his home-base to Los Angeles or New York as was usually done.

EP stayed in his southern-roots regional hub, Memphis Tennessee

Personal habits, Emotional Isolation, Self-Protection

Eccentric Chandra in Sadachbia - Varuna compounded by Shani

  • "His generosity to strangers is well documented. Always smiling and gracious, he found it difficult to be alone, especially in bed. His habit was to sleep all day with the windows taped so the sun wouldn't get in. He lived and traveled like a potentate with bodyguards that carried large guns." quoted verbatim from,_Elvis

BPL note: Shani-4 or Shani drishti into 4 may result in nightworker jobs.


bhratru-karaka (brother) * virya-karaka (virile)

[energizing-identifying lagnesha co-ruler of Vṛścika indriya- lagna]

[inimical-medicating rogesha for Vṛścika indriya- lagna]


[managing-tactile Hasta-3] [navamsha Kuja-Mithuna] intuitively physicalized championship communications

  • [Mangala-Kanya] * penetrating logic * proactive helping * thrust toward service * energetic assistance to the needy * pushy complaints * (potentially) vindictive * champion of litigious accusation * military planning * aggressive indictments * investigative journalism * medical treatment interventions
  • [Mangala in bhava-11] drive toward connectivity, pursuit of earnings, marketplace dynamics, invasive networking, vigorously active friends, energized scientific systems, economic conquests


Mangala in bhava-11 activates 1-physical body ++ 6-addictions, exploitation, divorce

Kuja-11 provides empowered action in economically profitable roles actively engaged with large assemblies, fan clubs, community networks, social-participation (11)

Mangala-movement = ruled by karmesha atmakaraka Budha communications-messaging.

[Rahu in bhava-3] opportunistic drishti to Mangala-11 amplifies the themes of thrilling movement, large groups,

Mangala-Kanya emphasizes the appeal to the exploited classes.

rogesha-6 Mangala = a sexualizer which framed EP's reputation as a hip-swinging provocateur.(Rahu thrilling provocation)

Although wildly popular with younger generations during his heyday, EP's behavior was deemed criminal (6) by the punitive judgment of the older generation of cultural-guardian southern folk.

Strictly Sober Shani (elder, rigid) is typically threatened by Mangala (younger, movement). Furthermore, Shani occupies 6th-from-Kuja.

  • lagnesha Kuja = rogesha,
  • Kuja is ruled by Budha randhresha,
  • [Rahu in bhava-3] drishti = the physical energy (dance) = barrier-bending, taboo-twisting
  • Shani's fear of uncontrolled movement is heightened

Mangala Sexual behavior occupies 6/8 from Chandra emotional stability, needs

BPL commentary: the childlike younger-partner-attraction phenomenon is often linked to drug-alcohol abuse, as the native stops maturing emotionally when the substance misuse begins.

By this measure, Elvis' drug addiction can be traced to his Shani opposition aged 14 during Rahu-Mangala bhukti where Mangala rogesha-6 indicates addictions and which would have exacerbated his Nishturabashi yoga feelings of emotional isolation and resistance to maternal nurturing. Guru-drishti into Kumbha helps to neutralize the poverty and parochialism of Chandra-Shani-4 but does not alleviate the emotional isolation.

  • [Guru-Tula] many trades * variety of exchanges * optimistic negotiations * believes in justice * doctrine of contractual exchange * multiple alliances * permission to bargain * diversity of arrangements * equable guidance * widens the scope of balanced design
  • [Guru in bhava-12] [svabhava] * great interiority * many meditations * much divination * many hospitalizations * many spiritual retreats * numerous psychic way-showers * many large private spaces * extensive trance guidance * a patron of sanctuary enclosures * in a wifely nativity, husbandly-companion may be benevolently invisible

[Guru Mahadasha] [age 14 until age 30

Generous Guru activates 2-music, voice, face +++ 5 entertainment, artistic creativity, romantic idealism, fun

EP began recording music in Nashville during his 19th year, Guru-Budha bhukti. His success in sales of musical recordings, cinema acting, and live performance touring remained spectacularly high during most of Guru Mahadasha.

Fantasy Figure

EP's gyrating, low-moaning songs filled a fantasy role for many romantic fans. EP's lyrics often referred to bedroom delights, dreams, and private pleasures. Guru in bhava-12 ruled by Rahu-yuti-Shukra in publications-3

wifely-companion was originally EP's underage (14 yr old) schoolgirl lover. EP was a promiscuous man who favored much-younger girls and short-term liaisons [Shukra-yuti-Rahu] . EP's primary attachment had been to his chronically ill and emotionally turbulent mother. Following her decease, he sought no replacement nishturabashi yoga.

EP was essentially forced by his boss to marry the beautiful young Priscilla Beaulieu for reasons of social decorum and to generate publicity. He was 32 and she was 22.

According to PBP, their sexual relationship ended after she became a mother (Elvis was interested only in girls). PBP developed a successful, long-lasting career in drama and fashion as indicated by EP' [7th-from-Chandra-4] Kumbha = Simha entertainments.

[Shani Mahadasha] [age 30 until decease age 42

Shani Mahadasha saw a gradual decline in EP's once-super-celebrity.

EP's his married-with-child status which began during Shani-Shani svabhukti inhibited the dreamy fantasy attractions which had been so powerful during Mahadasha of Guru-12.

The excitement of EP's race-mixing regional American style lost its provocative vigor (Shani lost energy) as the new trending international rhythms-and-themes of Beatles et al overtook the younger generations.

After ten years of fighting the exhaustion of constant touring, divorce, and over-management [Shani] rules 3-management , EP's charm was waning. According to the birth time from the Tupelo public records birth certificate, decease Shani-Chandra bhukti.

[Rahu in bhava-3] Manager, Promoter, Chief of Entourage - Colonel Tom Parker

The Master Manipulator during EP's entire career was "The Colonel"

  • Everyone in the entourage, including EP's bio-dad road manager, took their working orders from The Colonel.

A tightly controlling music promoter who was operating under various aliases, Andreas Cornelis van Kuijk (a.k.a. Parker) was a Dutch national running from polarizing conflict in his homeland. [Surya-yuti-Budha] randhresha-8 identity obscuration. The military title was insinuated from a non-existent militia which was itself a political fabrication of a politician. Rahu insinuation.

  • As the tale is told, neither EPs nor anyone in his immediate family were able to escape the manipulative personality of The Colonel. The Colonel understood the music business [Shukra]. He kept EP in the theatrical limelight for 22 years.

Rahu-yuti-Shukra * amplifies music, beauty, women, treasuries

Rahu dramatically amplifies Shukra-Makara-Draco ruler of 7-contracts ++ 12-clandestine arrangements, hotels, undercover operations

The Colonel = reckoned to have siphoned a considerable portion of EP's creative-performance income, via both legal contracts (7) and shady dealings (12).

Exciting, culturally transformative =.Voice-Face-Song

  • karmesha-10 in 2
  • Shukra-3 performance touring greatly amplified by Rahu
  • Shukra gets incoming drishti of Guru

Rahu-yuti-Shukra gives strongest amplification to handsome Makara Shukra. barrier-bending, taboo-twisting Rahu produces the "sweet marriage" and "bedroom fantasy" effect which made young girls swoon over Elvis during his performances and when listening to his recordings.

[Rahu in bhava-3] provocative love songs, thrilling lyrics Shukra song-writing

  • Opportunities found in writing and publishing. EP wrote hundreds of songs (3), and acted in dozens of cinema roles (3).as the romantic male lead
  • Rahu rules Shatatakara Chandra which needs [Chandra] to over-reach for social mobility [Rahu] via risky mixing of the home-culture elements (4)

[Shukra-yuti-Rahu] share Uttarāṣāḍha-Makara within one degree (although in different pada)

  • Icon of Cultural Merging, Barrier-Bending, taboo-twisting,
  • blurring the distinctions (Rahu Shadowy Illusions)
  • between religious vs secular music
  • between races
  • between genders

Music, barrier-bending, taboo-twisting , and Relationships with Women

[Shukra-yuti-Rahu] within one degree, in Uttarāṣāḍha-3-4 suggest compelling artistic ability for breaking racial boundary taboo via music and dance

Mix and Mottle * Fascinating, Boundary-Blurring Rahu + Sultry Shukra

EP's religious hymn singing and his (more dominant) secular musical gyrations poignantly mixed the historic African rhythms of the black south with the white-folk ballads of the European immigrants.

EP's rockabilly style was either adored or abhorred, His charisma was so powerful that everyone responded to him in some way.EP is considered sociologically to have been a cultural ice-breaker and artistic predecessor of the sentiments which created Civil Rights for all races and Women's Rights.

Commentators opined that with his throaty, moaning voice and swinging hips reminiscent of women's dancing, Elvis also helped to feminize the stiff, masculine, unyielding style of singing-and-dancing so characteristic of self-righteous American bourgeoisie in his day.

Elvis recorded considerable amounts of devotional Christian folk music. Yet much of his on-stage performance was overtly unorthodox [Rahu] and flew in the face of conventional race-class-gender morality.

At a private level, it is said that he was sexually promiscuous to a remarkable degree - before, during, and after marriage and that he favored much younger partners.

[lagnesha * co-ruler of Vṛścika indriya- lagna]


[helpful-calculating Pushya-2] [navamsha Ketu-Kanya]

  • [Ketu-Karkata] calmly dissociates from foundational habits * surrenders material security * placidly empty shelters * disregards conventional caretaking * not limited by customary routines * ignores restriction on farming-and-fishing * abandons owned-stewarded property * forgives the ancestors * releases a soothing pink cloud of ancient rhythms into the misty abyss
  • [Ketu in classroom-9] disinterested in fixed credenda * wandering worldview *disengaged from faith doctrine * disregards theory * liberating philosophy * irrelevance of patriarchal dogma * ambivalence toward conventional convictions * spacey father * weird beliefs * empty public guidance * forsaken by preceptors * ignores the ordinary understandings * incoherent ideology * unless other graha in 9, may prefer to live free from father-figures


Chandra-4 rules [Ketu in classroom-9]

EP professed a deeply personal religiosity imbued in him (he said) by his mother. Chandra dharma-pati but Ketu-9 also, and Chandra occupies 8th-from-dharmasthana = beliefs.

  • It would appear to have been a deep cultural attunement to the culture of farming folk. Yet for the folk, there is no important distinction between personal belief and cultural root-worship. It is one seamless emotional merge.

Ketu occupies emotionally sourced ailments-addictions = [6th-from-Chandra]

" EP's mother suffered from depression and took medications for this and for her weight problem. As a young man he started to take his mother's diet pills and antidepressants." quoted from,_Elvis
