Abstract :
This paper investigates usability of SriRamshalakha, a vedic tool used in Indian Astrology, in the encryption and decryption of plain English text. Sri Ram Shalaka appears in Sri RamChartmanas, one of the very popular sacred epic of Hindu religion, written by great Sant Tulsidasji. SriRamshalakha is used to fetch/infer the approximate answer of questions/decisions by the believers. Basically the said shalaka embed nine philosophical verses from Sri RamCharitmanas in matrix form based on which answers to queries are inferred and ingrained, however, none of the verses are visible and directly readable. Thus here we take SriRamshalakha as the ancient Indian method of text encryption and decryption and based on the same algorithms for the encryption and decryption of plain English text are proposed. The developed algorithms are presented with examples and possibility of its use in steganography and text to image transformation are also discussed.
