Do Narendra Modi's hands show his complicity in the Gujarat riots of 2002?

Hand Reading of Narendra Modi, Chief Minister of Gujarat:

The more hands I see of politicians the more I realize that politics attracts all kind of people. There isn't any particular talent or personality trait that appears to be necessary to become a politician! All one needs is the ambition to become one!

Narendra Modi, like some other politicians whose hands I have analyzed, appears to be an untypical politician. This is because his finger of Mercury shows that he can be quite
naïve. Sure, he has improved in this department from the time he was a young man (finger has improved on his right active hand when compared to his left passive hand) and he has become more shrewd, probably due to the profession he entered. But inherently he still likes to speak straight, and shoot from the hip. This is more evident in the shape of his thumb. Modi would do better if he was less blunt.

There are two other aspects of his personality that strike one immediately on seeing his hand. One is that Narendra Modi is not particularly a people’s person and secondly, and also that he is extremely ambitious. This is evident not just in the shape of his hand, but also the limited breadth and height of his Mount of Venus and also his Heartline which is not dark at the end (a long heartline is one which ends deeply etched on the Jupiter mount). He does seem to lack some inherent warmth of personality which can reach out.

(Added later: This does not mean Narendra Modi is a bad man or is not affectionate, but his hand shows that he is  reserved. To explain further, his personality is not one which can reach out by sheer charisma and warmth, and that is probably why he has reached out to people by his deeds.)

What do these qualities imply? Is Narendra Modi the kind of person who could have been a conspirator in the violence that took place in Gujarat in 2002? Is he the Merchant of Death as some people have dubbed him? Or has been falsely implicated because of circumstantial evidence and maligned for something which he was unable to control? This question will be answered as you read on.

Enjoys his solitude
His mount of moon is strong and dominates his hand. This shows that Narendra Modi likes his solitude but he seems to have consciously tried to change this about himself because he is aware that for a politician it is not such a great quality. He seems to have been forced to change in fact, from about the age of 45. This change is evident because his life line shifts a little roundabout this age and gives more space to Venus.

His attempts to reach out to people are evident in the way his life line moves further away from the mount of Venus as he grows into middle age. However it is not easy for him as in his heart of hearts he is not fond of networking and socializing. He likes his solitude, he loves nature.

He does not easily bond with people. One of the reasons for this is that he does not trust people easily, and at times imagines the worst of them. You can say, he has a kind of cynicism about people in his heart. The development of his lower mount of moon and shape of the finger of Saturn show this.

Ambitious
Modi's Mount of Jupiter is developed too and so is his finger and this shows Modi’s ambitious nature. The shape of the finger shows that he likes power more than the average person. He has a dominating nature and he believes that he is superior and born to rule. And he also has the habit of doing things very independently of what other people think. He is used to getting his own way, enjoys being in the centre of things, and can be quite controlling.

This does not mean that he is inflexible however. In fact he can be reasoned with, but it needs certain tactics. There is a method to tackle him, to convince him.

Oddly enough, when it comes to a push and a shove, Modi backs down. I can surmise this from this Upper Mount of Mars, which is not strong enough. The other signs on the hand do not contradict this. He likes to avoid any confrontation which he feels will weaken his position. He is not the person to ever do what Jaswant Singh did, openly defy the party. He has an ego, but it will not lead him to his waterloo. One of the signs that has led me to believe this is his upper mount of mars, which is weak.

Good leadership
His thumb shows that he is a natural leader and his leadership is leadership with a purpose as he is a man with a vision. He has strong and purposeful views on now to take his team forward and he has the ability to execute his plans.

Flaws in his leadership
There is a catch here however. Considering that he has average intelligence it is important that he has the right advisors, and that he listen to them. But his arrogance can come in the way, and his impulsiveness can lead him to do things he might regret later.

His plans, which are almost always grand, need to be more carefully thought out as they can at times do more harm than good.

Other qualities
He has good business sense. This is clear because in his hand as well as the phalanges of his fingers, it is the middle world which rules. He has also a good imagination. He can be at times extravagant for his own pleasures. He can become too serious about life sometimes and get into a brooding mood. He has a tendency to wallow in self pity at times. He can become very critical of those around him.

But now let’s get down to the real question:
Is he capable of committing genocide?
From his hands it is evident that he is not an evil man or even a bad man. In fact he has a lot of good in him. He does think of others (unlike L.K. Advani), specially the good of those he leads. As a politician he does care for his people, although in a distant sort of way. He is not a warm person, but he wants to do good. And he wants to be known for it.

His hands show that there is no way that he could have orchestrated the riots in Gujarat. There is nothing to show that he could derive any pleasure from the killing of innocent people. If anyone had given me this hand and asked me whether the owner of this hand has committed any great criminal act in his life I would have said a definite No.

But there is a catch. His character has flaws. They are:

He does not think all human beings are equal
He does not always stand up for what he believes is right
He does not have a broad love for humanity or a deep sensitiveness for people’s sufferings. He can be very kind and helpful, but to those whom he feels are worthy of it. This means that he may not have been moved to do something if he found that innocent people were being slaughtered.
His ambition and greed for power can cloud his judgment.
He has an average intelligence and can make mistakes in judgment.
He is impulsive and also manipulative.
He is not always logical.

People accuse him of fiddling when Gujarat was burning. None of us know what actually happened, whether Modi was guilty by omission if not by commission, but one thing his hands do reveal – that it is possible that a weakness in his character led him temporarily to turn a blind eye to what was going on. Temporary blindness I would say, not temporary madness. Modi is not the type to be swayed by emotions. If he did not act on the rioters, he did it because of the inherent coldness in his nature, and not because of rage or hatred.

    "I was a touch dispoointed with your blog post on narendra Modi's hand analysis .. Ofcourse you were almost top notch about his character and personality analysis, but I did not like the flow of your writing .. Instead of talking about your analysis of him, I felt like I was reading a TOI article where Modi is (wrongly) questioned about post-godhra riots every now and then .. It was a nightmare for us and it has passed .. There is no pont of digging the burried grave now .. A small mention of riots would have been fine but the whole article centred around the riots really set me off .. You could have talked more about how he was able to bring Nano and other giant industries to Gujarat and which quality of him has won him CM of the year award for consecutive 7 years from various magazine polls .. What quality of his has this charishma that even after 8 years of rule in Gujarat, there is still no single anti-incumbency feeling in the state and why the people of Gujarat love him ??

    This media who even demands for a fair trial of Ajmal, has without any evidence called Modi a massmurderer and death of merchant .. He has not even undergone a single trial nor any case is pending in the court against him .. How can we even mention that he was guilty .. There is no way he can be accused ..

    I dont think a person with your kind of intellectual can really get influenced by fluent-english speaking media persons like Burkha dutt or Rajdeep sardesai who really live on sensationalism and can get to any extent to portray a good man bad and devil .. Jsut dont trust them or the others who thrive on vengence and vendetta .. Trust your instincts .. Belive what your heart says .. We just cant create any perception from a stupid movie or by some stupid debate shows ..

    Ofcourse no offense meant to you .. You were quite right in analyzing that he is very ambitious and he does not gel up with people easily .. He takes inputs/suggestions from many about every thing he does but trusts very few people .. yeah, he is dominating and you were bang on target when you said that he feels that he is superior and he is born to rule .. Sometimes egoistic .. You might have missed the point that he is very very religious .. Does pooja everyday and he even keeps fasting the whole nine days of navratri (only on water) .. He has got tremendous memory power .. If he meets you once, even after 10 years, he will recognize you .. I have seen that with my own eyes ..

    Great work .. Looking forward to ur analysis of Aishwarya rai - My dream Girl .. LOL !!!"

    My reply to him was:

    " was not at all disappointed with your feedback! :) In fact I welcome it. I know what you mean when you say its all past and done. However, the truth is that no one really knows the answer and for me at least (not living in Guj) the one thing that always haunts me about Modi is: Is he guilty or is he not? So when I was reading his hand that was the topmost on my mind and I guess it would be for all those who are not very well aware of the events in Gujarat. So I was being true to myself while writing the blogpost, in the sense I was trying to address something which is still on the mind of many people (I think). They are just not willing to forgive Modi for what happened in 2002 and I hope my blogpost helps to clarify somethings. That is, please give Modi the benefit of the doubt. Don't blame him without proof.
    I am glad that you find my analysis of his personality fairly accurate.
    Good to get a point of view from someone who knows Modi personally.
    Thanks and regards,
    Nita.

  2. Reading about Modi is interesting. I confess I have always been prejudiced against Modi because of the Gujarat riots. Even today I cannot shake off the feeling that he must be guilty. This post did give me some idea as to the inner workings of a mind such as his. However I think you have been a little soft in the interpretation of his characteristics.

  3. Hmmm..."He does not think all human beings are equal"

    All Animals are equal but some animals are more equal than others I guess..

    I read about these idiosyncrasies of Modi somewhere...

    Anyway from what I heard he has helped the state develop a lot..but I cannot form a view about him, unless I can be certain about his involvement in the riots or of course unless I meet him(neither seem likely)..

  4. vishesh, thanks. the problem with writing about famous people is that some things about them are known. However I assure you that I knew nothing about him (except that he is probably involved in the riots and that he has done a lot for the development of gujarat). I just hope there is something here that is not so well known! I think some things are, but Modi himself will have to come here and confirm them! :)

  5. Anil, yes, I guess it is difficult to fend off deep rooted beliefs.

  6. I stumbled onto your blog by chance tonite. I am fascinated.

    Read several of your 'palm' readings.

    Whilst reading this one on Modi, it struck me that you have a really terrific command over the english language, coupled with a terrific flair for expression.

    Then I read the comments and was amused by the varied critique on yr analysis...or is it perhaps the choices you made...when you wrote on Modi...?
    It was always going to be a tough subject to tackle. Though you limited your scope, I thot u did an overall good job of giving a mental pix of d man.

    Its also interesting to note that people responding to you write rather well too! In fact the comments are intelligent :)
    You are fortunate indeed to have a smart bunch give you feedback. I presume it hones your ability.

    On a curious note...can folks like me, (non-famous), get a hand reading from you as well?

    cheers...and more power to ypur word lady.

  7. Thanks anuradha. Good to hear your feedback. And yes I am lucky to have intelligent commentators. Quite a few write to me personally, on email.
    Ofcourse I read hands of non-famous people but I do it for a fee. Check this post:
    http://palmistryforyou.com/2009/12/how-to-send-me-your-hand-photographs.html
    It takes hours to read a hand even though the ultimate analysis may be just a page long. This is because I study the relative strength of the mounts and fingers very carefully, checking it from different angles and I have to measure the length of the fingers. I need to check if a finger is really long or just high-set, and all this takes time. There are some hands on which I have spent a whole day because finally it is a question of judgment. Many people write to me asking me to do it for free, but that is because they do not understand what goes into it. It is hard work.

  8. Hi NITA...

    thank you for giving MODIJI the benefit of the doubt, here are few of my thoughts..


    First, no human is ever perfect...all of us have done things and said things in the past we regret...that is why all faiths ask us not to judge one another...let god worry about that.

    I am Gujurati. Godhra is not too far from where I was born. Let me tell you, Hindus and Muslims alike have been fighting inside Gujurat for close to a 1000 years. To blame an "out cry" of thousands of people who came out due to the worst terrorist attack in the history of the state (train burning) on "one man" is totally wrong. Had Modi not be there, Godhra would have happened, anyways. Had the Congress party been running Gujurat at that time, even they would not have been able to control that mob. In fact, Godhra did burn once years before when the Congress was in power at the state ( something no one speaks of). Modi did what he could, to contain the mess. He even appared in several Media channels asking people to calm down and stay home...(most people have never seen these, but he did do this, as I have viewed the video recordings). The riot took place only a few months after he came to power in Gujurat...HE, IN A SENSE, INHERITED A STATE THAT WAS READY TO EXPLODE. He got many Gujuratis out of this mind set through his aggressive agenda of development, and prosperity, which seems to have worked, as Gujurat is at ease today.

    Most of the misconceptions about him are from the Media, which is very biased towards him...He has alot of enemies, not only in the Congress, but within his own party, because he is a "no nonsense" politician, which is uniqie in India. He has been known to throw people out on a dime, if things don't get done. He will not let the people of Gujurat be held hostage to a corrupt few (even if they are powerful). Human rights actives have been gunning for him for years now, with many false claims and alligations. False alligations about him, proven to be wrong, don't make it into the main stream media.

    Alot of myths about him have been dispelled recently, but still, the image of him as a modern day "Nero" is abound, and not right...he is an elected Chief Minister of Gujurat, and has been elected by the people several times. I believe even Godhra votes BJP now, and many MUSLIMS in Gujurat openly campaign for him. If the people are happy with him, who are we to point fingers?

    He is very dedicated to the state. The riot marks 5 days of his administration that has ruled close to a decade, and may continue for another decade.

    I would like to challenge your notion that he is of "average" intelligence. I feel he is the most intelligent leader we have ever had. I don't know, perhaps I am wrong...but a man of "average intelligence" cannot sit on the thrown of Gujurat for long, and over come the challenges he has over the last decade. In the election of 2007, he had to fight not only the Congress, but also senior BJP leaders of the state who were jelous of him, and they wielded much influence in the state...still he emerged on top with full majority. A person of "average intelligence" simply can't run Gujurat. The kind of speeches he makes, lead me to believe he does his home work...

    My brother spent some time with MODIJI in the early 90's when he was basically a no one. He would come to our village to campaign for the BJP. My brother says he was very focused when it came to his work. All he ever spoke of was about developing this and that to serve the people. He wishes to see India a great power, like never before seen. He wishes to see "national pride" in everyone.

    His only passion is about development of the state, and that is why Gujuratis love him so...he is our leader.

    I hope this might help some...

    Thanks Nitaji....may God bless you, and all those you love...

    JAI HIND!!!

  9. Anonymous, I am not sure that Modi did his best to contain the riots but I do agree about the tensions between the two communities being in existence for a long time. Certainly, Modi is not the one directly responsible for the riots but you see leaders need to take responsibility. It is a matter of principle.
    About intelligence it depends what you mean by intelligence. There are various kinds of intelligence and when I speak of intelligence I do not mean practical intelligence. I would call people like Bill Gates intelligent or people like ex-President Kalam.

  10. Hello Nita,
    Interesting Analysis!
    Since there is so much talk about him and people wanting him to become the next PM of India. What do you think , will he make a good PM & in ur opinion is he India's best option?
    How is he like when compared to the American President Barack Obama ?

    ReplyDelete
  11. There is no comparison to him and Barack Obama. Obama is an intellectual and much more strongly principled.
    As whether Modi will make a good P.M., well, what are the choices? Rahul Gandhi? Yes, he would be far better than Rahul Gandhi. But I personally do not think Modi is good as a P.M. because his hand does not show true leadership ability nor a love for people. Rahul Gandhi would be much worse because at least Modi is a doer, he is capable.

  12. Hi Nita ji, Nice blog on modi's palm reading. Whilst reading, I felt and found some similarity in my palm and modi ji's palm. You are tremendeous reader and whatever traits you have mentioned here is all about scorpio person. Modi ji is scorpian I am also scorpian and If you see Rahul Gandhi is also scorpian, where moon is debilitate and thats why these persons are more creative and imaginative. My moon area is also vast and some horizontal and verticals line on my moon area shows i am imaginative and creative type. Well, there are so many influence lines in my whole palm which of them some lines coming from venus mount or from life line or wealth line or head line and all the lines goes upwards. What does it mean? Are they good for life? Thank you.

    ReplyDelete
  13. Neel, certainly as you say if the Moon area is developed it shows a creative imagination although the type is to be determined whether it is lower, middle or upper moon which is developed. The shape of the Headline is also to be taken into consideration. And yes, overall upward lines are good.

  14. Please do an analysis of Shri Vishwesha Theertha Swamiji in the spiritual leaders section and compare with other Indian and Foreign spiritual leaders.

  15. Well, if some good hand photos are available on the web, I will certainly do it. If you have any, please send them to me.

  16. the head line in his left hand is more clear and good then right hand that was a bit surprising for me !!!

    ReplyDelete
  17. True, most successful people have better headlines on their active hands as they have improved in some way or the other. When it comes to Modi's case, on the face of it, it does seem as if the Headline on his right active hand is worse as it is broken. But unless we see the actual hand clearly we cannot be a hundred percent sure because the quality of the headline is important and this cannot be seen in pictures. A broken headline is bad at the point of the break, by which I mean the age. If he is past the difficult period then it is not necessarily bad at this point of time.

  18. During his childhood times, a Sadhu, who was also a palmist once said that he would become the highest post holder either in spiritual world or the world of the politics. He had said that if Modi chooses the spiritual path, he will become the Shankaracharya(highest position in spirituality) and if he chooses politics(which infact he has), he would become the Prime Minister of the country, which seems to be happening.

    And your analysis that he is not "quite" intelligent is absolutely wrong in my view. If u make this inference seeing his short pinky, then I don't know for what reason are u calling him a person having good business skills. A person with short little finger can't be assumed to be business minded. Kindly look for other pic of Modi's palm so that u might get to know that he has quite an O.K. pinkie, a strong head line etc. It's possible that his communication skills are weak, but he is way above intelligent, atleast U could be proved wrong with the way he answers the questions of the media, even better than Obama.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Sachin, firstly, the pinky finger does not show intelligence. Nor does it show business sense.
    Business sense is to be evaluated by noting the length of the apollo fingers as well as the phalanges and this can be confirmed the shape of the palm and the shape of the tips of the fingers as well as by the pinky finger. One sign means nothing in any case. And btw, Modi's pinky finger is much better on his right hand and it is the right hand which is to be read, not the past which is shown by the left hand.
    Secondly, I have not said he is not intelligent and nor have I said that he is "not quite intelligent" as you claim I have said. The problem is that at times people see their leaders as perfect, and unless the leader is praised to the skies they are not happy.
    I have said he has average intelligence and I stick by what I have said. There are many intelligent people in this world like say Bill Gates or Steven Speilberg, or even Manmohan Singh, but certainly not Modi. However if you believe him to be intelligent from what you know of him or when you hear him speak, then I have nothing to say. These are personal evaluations, but on this blog it is entirely from the hand. I have never met Modi and it is unlikely that I will ever meet him.
    Before I come to any conclusion, I check the length of the fingers, shape of the hand, phalanges, tips, and also the quality and length of the lines and then come to a reading. I am quite sure about what I wrote about Modi or I would not have written it.
    You are welcome to prove me wrong but using only palmistry, not your personal perception of Modi.
    When it comes to the pinky finger, as I have already mentioned, it does not show intelligence or business sense by itself. Everything on the hand is to be read in combination.

    1. You are right Neeta ji, People can not differentiate btwn intelligent and intelligency. I think Narendra Modi's decisions are not a long lasting, they are only ephemerals.

  20. For a long time, I am interesting in hand-reading and you prediction is very closed to me. In my view, the person having mercury finger could not reach first part of sun finger always a person do wrongful act while deciding specially by concealment or hiding himself..........Gujrat riots is still a matter of question for Modi because in Indian Judaical system U cannot prosecuted if you are not directly involved up to the limit of Sec 120 IPC - Criminal Conspiracy but making silence is also a offense in the eye of humanity.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Mr Sharma, I can answer your remark about the short Mercury finger.
    You are saying that a person with a short Mercury finger is always a person who does "a wrongful act."
    A long or short Mercury finger does not reveal the morality of a person. The length of a Mercury finger can reveal certain personality characteristics (nothing to do with morality or wrongful acts) but even these need to be confirmed by other signs on the hand.
