The blunder inherent in Shri Oak’s Vakri motion theory

A lot of people have implicit belief in a new theory of “Vakri” motion proposed by Shri Oak. According to this “revolutionary” theory, any planet only needs to cross the ecliptic to be called Vakri. (This theory is in complete contradiction to the rules of astronomy and actually being retrograde in the sky)

Here is the glaring blunder in this theory: The Moon crosses the ecliptic several times a month. Does the Moon become “Vakri”? Can the Moon ever be Vakri? According to Shri Oak, the answer is yes. Yet, can anybody point out in history, a single instance when the Moon has been called Vakri?
