Lal Kitab is the name of five books, published between 1939 and 1952, which expound an absolutely unique system of Indian, astrology now known as the Lal Kitab system of astrology. These books, each carrying the title Lal Kitab, were authored by the originator of this system, Pandit Trilokinath Rajendar Bhargav. Scholars, who have studied the Lal Kitabs, have placed its originator-cum-author, Pandit Trilokinath Rajendar Bhargav on the same pedestal as the great Bhrigu and Parasar. These days, Best Laal Kitaab Expertise (though presently available in imitated form) is the biggest seller of all astrology books. The Lal Kitab books were written in Urdu with a sprinkling of Punjabi throughout. Admittedly, at times, these books become somewhat challenging for a non-Punjabi to follow.
