DECODING WD Gann’s TRAVEL TO CALCUTTA INDIA
Why did WD Gann choosed to visit Calcutta instead of any other city in India?
Calcutta was national capital of India then and was considered to be knowledge hub of India then along with trade hub during early 1900’s. This city enjoyed strong reputation across the globe during that period as a hub of education and knowledge. In addition to this Gann strongly believed in the cardinal angles 90 180 270 & 360. He wanted to travel to cities across the globe located on these cardinal angles and had a strong faith that he can derive knowledge from any city situated over any of these cardinal angles.
He himself lived in Oklahoma in 1906 and worked as a broker there, which was nearby 90 degree west longitude and he found Calcutta to be almost nearby 90 east longitude which is 180 degree from his place. It was then in Oklahoman he decided to visit Calcutta for knowledge. Along with this strong faith and he had also heard about good reputation of vedic knowledge in India and Calcutta as a hub of knowledge and education, he became eager to visit Calcutta to quench his desire for gaining vedic knowledge as if 180 degree angle was strongly calling him and he decided to visit Calcutta at his earliest.
Since Calcutta was also a trading hub, especially for Cotton, Tea & Rice. He wanted to meet these traders of India too and learn from them about their methods of determining trading decisions or concluding the price trends in the market etc. Where he found that in India most of the traders of India then depended their trading decisions on astrological forecasts only. This further aroused his desire for learning astrology in Calcutta, India.
The oldest airport in India is Netaji Subhash Airport in Calcutta started functioning from 1924 and Delhi became national capital only on 1931. Therefore when WD Gann came to Calcutta, then capital of India, through sea route via ship and most probably not by airways.
