Eastern Cape Overview:
Eastern Cape is the second-largest South African province. The province is known for its long shoreline, historical and port cities of East London and Port Elizabeth, national parks, beaches, and wildlife. Bhisho is the capital of the province.
San hunter-gatherers were one of the earliest people that inhabited the regions of modern Easter Cape. These people at the start were mostly dependent on hunting, but as the time passed they kept cattle with them.
Later on, many native tribes migrated towards the region. Dutch were the first Europeans who arrived in the region in 1652 under the flag of “Dutch East India Company”.
The company established settlements and trading posts also. Later, the region was taken by the British from the Dutch as they wanted to secure their shipping lanes bound towards the Subcontinent.
As the time passed, the settlers (Boers) wanted an autonomous colony or country and wanted the British to leave. This resulted in the war and afterward, the “Union of South Africa” was created.
The beaches and shoreline of Eastern Cape is an ideal location for beach lovers, sports enthusiasts, surfing, boating or fishing. Some of the other features include hills, mountains, rainforests, and plains.
The province borders other South African provinces of Free State towards the North, Western Cape towards the West, KwaZulu-Natal towards the Northeast and Northern Cape towards the Northwest.
Although the area of Eastern Cape is second-largest among the nine South African provinces, it is one the poorest and least-developed province. Industries and agriculture are the primary economic drivers.
The cities of “East London” and “Port Elizbeth” have some of the large industries and ports that contribute much to the economy. The agriculture has a vast scope in the province but is not much developed. Some of the main agricultural products are olives, maize, sorghum, and cattle.
Eastern Cape is inhabited by various ethnic and racial groups. This is the reason several languages are spoken in the province. Xhosa is the primary language followed by Afrikaans, English, and Sotho.

We are tech professionals and working in USA. After a year long search we brought the house. After buying the house I started looking for consultant who can help me evaluating the house. I came across Subhavaastu website which has lot of information. I contacted Mr.Suresh and requested him to help with our house vastu. It has been a great pleasure working with him. He is very detailed oriented person and never compromises with his work. I am typically not interested to deliver the reviews. But after working with Mr. Suresh I decided to share my experience. Mr. Suresh has great expertise in providing vastu consultation to USA property. He is always available through email and phone l to answer questions. I am writing this review hoping it will help other people like me who lives in abroad. Please take advise before buying the house. I highly recommend Mr. Suresh as he has great experience with structure of USA properties and also he provides genuine consultation. I really appreciate Mr. Suresh's help in evaluating our house - Padma - Boston - USA
Hello Sir, My name is Bharathi. Me and my husband have been reading your articles closely. We really appreciate the effort put by you to share your knowledge about vastu and it’s effects - Bharathi - USA.
I have consulted Suresh Garu during December 2014 during the process of buying a house in Texas, USA. I have occupied the house for one year now, and feel like dropping a review regarding my experience during the entire process. I am very much satisfied with the kind of service I received from him. He is very knowledgeable and I was often stunned by his detailed analysis during the course of my interaction with him. He was very much accessible over phone (perhaps more than 10 times for one house plan!) and the price is very much reasonable especially compared with the cost of the house. I noticed his burning desire to help me in making informed decisions on certain things. I have seen some people pretending to know this subject and misguiding those who come for help by saying only what we want to hear. SubhaVaastu is definitely not that one. Finally, I am strong believer of leaving certain things to experts in those subjects. I have been in US for more than 13 years and have seen people doing their own corrections (by reading website articles) trying to save few dollars. Please don’t do that. You would end up in causing more damage. I highly recommend you to engage SubhaVaastu in your next project - Satish - Dallas - TX - USA
We are seeing families becoming victims of excessive drinking habits of the males/head of the family. Basically, starting with social habits drinking has taken proportions beyond the social mandate. This is because of weakness of mind. People become slaves of such habits very often. Mental weaknesses . . . . For more details Free Vastu Services page.

At beginning the bus driver enjoyed the peanuts but after a week of eating them he asked: "Please granny, don't bring me peanuts anymore. Have them yourself.”
"The granny answers: "You know, I don't have teeth anymore. I just prefer to suck the chocolate around them”.
