Hi Biss, "graha maitri" means "planetary friendship". Yup, it is a bit important because there are some planets which don't get along with others - Sun and Saturn for example.
Martian blemish, well Biss, in my calculations your Mars came to the 7th house so it is surely a case of blemish. If you say you have Mars in 5th, well, I have to check again I guess but I am sure I did my calculations (of your chart) right
And I wasn't around because my internet conenctivity was giving me a bit of a problem so I had to be offline for nearly 3 days. And they haven't given us internet access in office so......
And my time is 5h 30minutes earlier than GMT. So Silk is right when she says she sees me around 2 pm Atlanta time because I usually log on after 11 pm Indian time.
