Lankan astrologer predicted Pearl Harbour attack

At the height of the Second World War, the late astrologer Professor Bulathsinhala was arrested by the Military Police and brought before the military High Command.

“Is it true that you have made a statement to the effect that one of our bases will fall to the Japanese by the end of the year?” the Commander- in-Chief asked.

“Yes, sir,” the Professor said.
“Why did you say that?” bellowed the Commander.
“I say what I see,” the professor retorted.
The Commander surveyed the Professor from head to toe and fired the next question.
“What can you say about me?”

“May I see your palm, sir?” the Professor asked. The Commander held out his palm. After taking one look at his hand, the Professor said, “Your wife is very unfaithful to you.”

“You are bloody right!” said the Commander, who then released Prof. Bulathsinhala, warning him not to make declarations that could lower the morale of the soldiers while a war was underway.

In December that year, on Christmas Day, the Japanese bombed Pearl Harbour, where the late John F. Kennedy was a naval officer.
