Veda & UCC

U Myint Sein (GBNF) is my childhood friend. He became the Principal at BARB (Burmese Astro Research Bureau). He asked me if I can help him to speed up some Veda processes (e.g. generation of a Natal Horoscope).

I assigned two students Ko Win Latt and Ko Zaw Tun and supervised them for the Veda projects.

Ko Win Latt owned a computer and was also an excellent programmer. Under my supervision and with the guidance of Ko Myint Sein, Ko Win Latt came up with three versions. He named them WinHoro V3, V6 and V9.

V3 produces the “basic” horoscope with Yathi (Rasi), Bawa and Nawin (Navamsa). It is also known as “Tri Cekka Zatar” referring to the three parts. It takes some time (a few minutes to an hour) if done manually.

V6 produces a better horoscope.

V9 produces the best horoscope.

WinHoro was implemented using BASIC (an interpretive language).

BASIC (Beginner’s All-purpose Symbolic Instruction Code) was designed by Professors Kemeny & Kurtz for use with the Dartmouth College Time Sharing System (CSS).

Bill Gates and Paul Allen implemented “Tiny BASIC” for the MITS Altair. They co-founded Microsoft.

BASICA, GWBASIC and variants became a popular language for microcomputers and PCs.

One needs expert knowledge to “interpret” a Zartar. Ko Zaw Tun used Prolog (language for Logic Programming) to implement the Bedin Rules. He tested his program with several sets of data. He was surprised when his program said that “the Two Year Old is a rich person (possibly a Millionaire)”. He thought that there must be a bug. It turned out that the Two Year Old is a grand son of a wealthy Sawbwa, who decided that his grand son should inherit his wealth.

Sad to note that my good friend Ko Myint Sein is now GBNF. It was good news and bad news for his son, who was back in Yangon to take examination for Master Mariner. He was present at Ko Myint Sein’s last journey.
