The Symptoms of the Kali Yuga are mentioned in the Sanskrit texts the Vishnu Purana and the Linga Purana . These sacred texts has accurately predicted Kali Yuga conditions.
All of us have heard so much about the doomsday; we all believe that one fine day, life on earth will not exist and everything around us including us will be in ruins making Earth a barren land and lifeless water. However, no proper believable truth about destruction of Earth can be found anywhere. At the scientific level, many developed countries are constantly researching about that day when earth would turn lifeless for everyone.
Nevertheless, Hindu Mythology since time eternal has talked about Earth’s destruction, which is bound to happen in the Kal /Kali Yuga. In fact, the last verse of Bhagavat Purana reveals a great secret of our future on Earth. The future of Earth has been told in 25 predictions, written, 5,000 years ago by sage Vedvyasa. The believable part of these predictions are that they appear accurate.
A list of 10 predictions and prophecies mentioned in Bhagvata Purana and seems to be totally accurate in today’s world :
1. Thieves will become kings, and kings will be the thieves
2. Men will devote themselves to earning money; the richest will hold power
In today’s world money is the most important thing.We live today only for earning money.Money is the only driving force, which is most necessary for our survival.The person having more money is the most prestigious person in our society. The power lies in hand of rich persons.They hold the key position in government directly or indirectly
3. Fetuses will be killed in the wombs of their mothers
It is possible to do abortion only by taking a pill.So there is no doubt on this prediction.
4. Shopkeepers will run dishonest businesses
Business is done to earn profit.Honesty is not the objective.There is adulteration even in things we eat. Thus honesty is the thing of past.
People spend more time in looking good in which hair styling is priority.The prediction was made thousand of years back in past is most correct today.6. Young girls will trade in their virginity
In many countries sex trade is the legal business.So young girls do trade for their virginity.

Recession is common in today’s economy, ans so is unemployment.Even so we have progressed so much,yet we can’t give hundred percent employment.In today’s world with so much development and industrialization, we can still find so many beggars, begging for their livelihood.
Ready made food is most common need of our time.So many ready to eat items are consumed by us in our day to days life.It surprises me, how correctly this prediction was made.
