While writing on NSG Meet in Vienna on September 6, 2008, Ganesha felt the need to define the significators (Karaka) of nuclear energy in general and for India in specific. Ganesha then searched for the data of past nuclear events in relation to India and embarked on a historic study of the planetary positions on the date of the event.
Note that in almost all dates Mars, Mercury, Gemini, Virgo, Aries and Scorpio are involved either directly or by Parivartan Yoga (1). The other association that Mars and Mercury get involved into is through the chain dispositor factor in which exact Parivartan does not happen but the final planet in the chain of dispositors either falls in Aries, Scorpio, Gemini or Virgo or is in conjunction with Mars or Mercury.

A theory – Why Mars and Mercury
Mars is the significator of heat, energy, electricity, all involved in atoms and nucleus with atomic and nuclear energies in focus.
Mercury (metal) is responsible for processing the fission and fusion processes as well as the process of developing energy from atoms and nucleus. Mercury being the fastest planet in the solar system and the speed of its atoms is the fastest, and which the atomic and/or nuclear energy is to be developed, Mercury seems to be signifying the nuclear energy.
The positive and negative signs of Mars and Gemini both are involved because the basic processes, fission and fusion of atoms are used in nuclear energy development and as both these processes are opposite processes, both the opposite signs of Mars and Mercury play a role.
Summarily, Ganesha feels that we should consider Mars, Mercury and their signs whenever issues related to nuclear energy are concerned, specifically for India. This is an idea and theory open to all for discussion and countering arguments..
Further, in this light of Ganesha’s personal opinion of significators of nuclear energy, one should mark that in future whenever Mars and Mercury get associated in any manner as observed above, India will have one or the other event related to its nuclear energy programme, be it civil or defence.
