KATHMANDU, NEPAL, June 4, 2001 : While the reason behind the tragic shooting of senior members of Nepal's royal family remains somewhat elusive, some astrological predictions have emerged. D. Raghunandan of the Delhi Science Forum First's reports show that if the Crown Prince married or had children before he was 35, his father King Birendra would die. Another prophecy apparently states that the king would not live beyond 55 -- the age he had reached in December. According to legend, a sage predicted that the dynasty would fall after 10 generations - and King Birendra was the 11th generation.
