The Federated States of Micronesia, or simply Micronesia is an island nation located in the Pacific Ocean. The country consists of four states i.e. Chuuk, Yap, Pohnpei, and Kosrae and these states combined, consist of over 600 islands that are spread over the area of 2700 km.
The islands are known for fresh beaches, ancient ruins, lagoons, scuba diving, boating, and fishing.
Indigenous tribes inhabited the island before the colonists arrive. It is estimated that these people arrived on the island around 4000 years ago.
The islands were first discovered by the Portuguese followed by the Spanish who made permanent settlements.
After, the Spanish power declined after their defeat in the “Spanish-American War”, the islands were sold to the Empire of Japan by the end of the 20th century.
The German reign didn’t last long and the islands were soon occupied by Japan in the World War 1. The United Nations also authorized the Japanese to administrate the islands.
The Japanese built some of the most crucial bases on the island in World War 2 due to its strategic location and were used for various supplying, etc. operations.
A large part of the Japanese fleet was also held on the island when the Americans attacked. As the war ended, the islands were taken by the US who continued their rule till 1979, when the islands were allowed self-governance.
The islands are the best destination to be visited in the Pacific Ocean if you are willing to explore the nature and history combined.
For nature and beauty, we can’t describe how beautiful and fresh the islands are and in addition, there are various World War 2 remains, sunken ships, etc. that make the place more interesting.
The economy of the islands, due to various factors is not well developed and the country is largely dependent on the US aid. Agriculture, fishing, tourism, etc. are some of the economic activities but are not much developed to carry its own burden.
English is the official language of the country while several other languages are also being spoken in the country. Christianity was introduced on the islands by the colonists and still today, it is the dominant religion of the island nation.

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 an incredible delight 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
"I contacted Sureshji to consult on our current home. He was spot on in identifying vastu dosha in regards to the problems we were having. He suggested remedies but we are still looking for a new house. Since then I have been in touch with him for finding a right home for us. He is very sincere and truly wishes better lives for everyone. He doesn’t compromise with quality and is always responsive to queries. He recommends solutions as per location as vaastu rules differ for each country. He is greatly contributing to the society with his knowledge of Vaastu Shastra and dedication towards his work. Keep up the good work Sureshji and wish you success and happiness!" - Megha - Virginia - 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

Joke Of the Day
Tinga Rao made a complaint in the police station and subject of the complaint is that the neighbour’s wife is missing since a week.
"Then the Police asked why should you worry, when neighbours wife is missing."
"The cryptic answer of Tinga Rao was – “my neighbour is partying and enjoying the life for the past one week because his wife is missing. That I cannot tolerate”."
