Priyanka Gandhi's hand analysis

Priyanka Gandhi ias an independent minded and compassionate woman but she is not all that she appears to be. She is no wimp! Narendra Modi called her “gudiya” once and he couldn’t be more wrong. This woman is no doll. She is nowhere on India’s political scene at the moment but the truth is that she is an heir of the Nehru family and knowing how dynastic we Indians are, one never knows when this Gandhi scion might enter politics, that too straight at the top! But is she good for India? Scion or not, if she is right for the job then she deserves a chance. But is she suited to politics? That is the question.

Gordon Brown's hands tell us that he is a good man, but is he an effective leader?

As a human being Gordon Brown does very well. His hands show him to be a sympathetic, generous and warm person.  He likes people and can be a great friend and partner. Today he is the Prime Minister of Britain and one wonders whether he is an effective one. Whether he is a true leader. A look at the shape of his hands and fingers gives us a clue.

What do Rahul Gandhi's hands tell us about his capability as a politician?

Rahul Gandhi is a decent person, an independent thinker, has a balanced personality and an open mind. The question is: Would he be effective as the Prime Minister of India? People say that he is being groomed for the top job and that is why this question becomes very important. I will try to answer it by studying the shape of his hand and fingers.

Will he make a good politician?
As Rahul’s thumb tells us, his will is certainly a not weak one, but if one takes into account the kind of will one needs to lead a country, then he needs more

How to send me your hand photographs - Part II

In this post I am going to describe in detail the kind of photographs I need to read hands and you can also see some samples of the kind of photos I need. If you want a list of all the samples please check this page.

These are the written instructions:-

Remember that overall there are 3 types of photos I need. 1) The full hand with the thumb separately 2) Palm Closeups and 3) Fingerprints – all these of both the hands.

1) Full hand photos: The most important photos I need are photos taken directly from the front of the hand, one photo each of both hands with the fingers close together including the thumb (to get their relative length) and one each with the fingers held in a natural position (of both the hands) and that means four photos in all. These full hand photos are essential for me to see the general shape of the hand and relative length of the fingers and thumb. When you take the photo of the fingers close together don’t forget to keep the thumb close to the fingers.

To get the natural/relaxed position of the hand clench your fist and then slowly open up the hand, straightening out the fingers and thumb.

Here are a few samples to show how differently people hold their fingers. You can see that the thumb can be seen only at an angle in the photos and that is why I need separate photos of the thumb Please note that the complete hand needs to be visible, including the thumb, base of the palm and the tips of fingers.



Here is another example:

When I say photos taken from the front I mean the kind when you put up your hand when you are taking an oath. Think of the hand as a portrait of a face required for a passport photograph. Photos taken from different angles do not provide the right proportion of the different parts of the hand/fingers. No part of the hand or fingers should be missing from the photograph. In these photos the full hand needs to be visible, from the base of the palm to the tips of the fingers.

To take the photos, hold your hand vertical and the camera face to face with the hand so that the angle is correct and a proportionate picture is taken.

I also need photos of the back of each hand. (two more)

That makes it six in all.

Separate photos are needed of the thumb as the thumb is usually at an angle from the rest of the fingers. Best is to take a picture of the thumb directly from the front, so that its shape is visible, which means two more photos. Photos of the back of the thumbs (instead of the front) are also okay if you do not have long nails. Both thumbs are required.

Here are some sample photos of the thumb.


So that is 8 photos.

For the full hand photographs and thumbs as described above I do not necessarily need photographs of a high resolution. However, for the palm close ups I need high quality images. If your camera is not of a high resolution, a high quality scan of the palm is required.



2) Palm close-ups: A close-up photograph of both palms is required. Please take the full palm, and this means both sides of the palm need to be visible and also the top (base of fingers) and bottom (end of palm, beginning of wrist) . There is no need to send images of the part of the palm. The full palm is required. You can either use a high resolution camera for this, or a high res copyscan.

Send the images by email. They will be big files, so you can send them in batches. Do not reduce them. You can use wetransfer.com if you wish. You can also use Dropbox. Please do not send rar. files.

That makes it a total of 10 photos of the hand, including that of the thumbs, full hand, back of the hand and palm closeups.

All of the above photos can be taken with a camera or with a scanner. Use the highest quality settings available for the scanner/camera. For the full list of sample photos check this page.


The photographs/scans/prints are for three purposes:

1) To see the shape of the hand and the placement and setting of the fingers.

2) To see the lines, including ridges and apexes which can be seen in the palm closeups.


3) Fingerprints: 
The fingertips should face the camera directly as fingerprints look very different from an angle. Think of the fingertip as a face and the photograph you need like a passport photo. Take the picture directly from the front. Take a close-up of the fingertip with the focus on the centre of the fingertip pattern.

If you get a high resolution photograph then the fingerprints come out very well if close-ups are taken. Ideally each fingerprint should be done separately or two together because often the fingers are not aligned with
each other. Focus exactly in the center of the fingertip pattern.

The thumb needs to be done separately. Again, treat the thumb tip as a face and let it face the camera directly.

For photo close-ups of fingerprints, you should not use the flash unless you have a very superior camera. Take it in a good light, preferably daylight.

If you do not have access to a high resolution camera, and want to use a scanner for the fingerprints, ensure that you do not press too hard on the scanner otherwise the fingerprints do not come out well. Each finger should be done separately, or maybe two together unless your fingers are perfectly aligned and ensure that the scanner is set to high resolution.

Another alternative method to get fingerprints is with a stamp or ink pad (outlined below).

If using a stamp pad do it this way:
Put your finger (it has to be clean and dry) on a stamp pad and press this finger onto to a sheet of white paper.. very gently otherwise the fingerprint could be smudged. Do this several times with the same finger as the first 1-2 impressions may have excess ink. If you press too hard the fingerprint will be smudged. The second and third impressions are often better. Remember that the analogy of the passport photograph and think of the fingertip as a human face. The fingerprint has to be from the front. Angles are not useful nor are prints of the top half of the fingertip. Focus on the centre of the fingertip.

Do this for all the ten fingers.


When you send me the images let me know the answers to these questions:


Information needed:

a) Let me know if your hand feels soft or hard or firm, or somewhere inbetween.
b) And also if your fingers/palm are stiff or flexible. In this you can use your own judgment as I can usually make out from the photos anyway. I just need a confirmation from your side. For testing flexibility, hold your hand in a horizontal position and try and bend it upwards but do not bend the wrist. Do the fingers bend 10 degrees? 40 degrees? Or is it very stiff? Test the thumb separately because the flexibility of the thumb is often different.
c) Let me know if you are right handed or left handed. Even if you are ambidextrous, let me know which hand you write with.
d) Please let me know your age.


Tips to keep in mind:
  • Use the close-up setting (look for closeup icon)
  • Take Large Photos with Superfine quality (Check "Menu" of your camera). If you have a problem sending such large files, send one photo per message 
  • Turn off the flash if necessary
  • Keep your hand still while the photo is being taken
  • Best to take the photograph outdoors in bright natural light
  • Avoid taking the photograph on dull days or late evenings
  • Ensure that your hands are clean and dry
  • Check the photographs on your computer before sending them. Compare them with the lines on your hand 
  • Dont reduce size of the images


You can write to me (my email id is on the right side bar of this page) to ask me how much it will cost you for a reading, and any other clarifications regarding photos. I take advance payment for all readings.


What you can get from a hand reading:

1) From the first (shape of the hand and fingers) you can get an overview of your personality. Any major changes in personality over the years can also be discerned, as well as some major inherited qualities (by studying both the hands). I rely on this technique to analyse the hands of celebs and at times I am lucky enough to glimpse some lines.

2) From the Lines, the character analysis can be more specific and more detailed than one based just on the shape of the hand. Some future trends (based on what the person is like currently) can also be read from the lines if all lines are visible in the photograph/scan (including minor lines). Major events from the past can be told.

3) From the fingerprints you can see with clarity the issues you are destined to struggle with, the issues which are most important to you, the make or break issues. This gives a clue as to why some inherited traits develop and some don't. Fingerprints show the root cause of why you are the way you are. They also tell you more about the activity that will make you happy and fulfilled. What is the right life for you. What will fill that void, and what the obstacles are that prevent one from being true to oneself.

A reading based on the above can range from 15 to 20 pages and at times it can go up to 25 pages, depending on the hand. It can be useful to you in several ways. You can understand yourself better and get a better idea of your talents and capabilities. We all need to see ourselves objectively so that we can prevent ourselves from rationalizing our negative traits or not appreciating our good qualities.

Finally, Character is Destiny and if you improve upon a personality characteristic, your future is liable to change. In addition, a fingerprint reading can help you unlock deep layers of your personality and help you understand why you struggle with some issues repeatedly.


Why I cannot work for free
I take hours and at times days to study a hand, and therefore cannot do it for free. Even if it a character analysis, I spend a lot of time on the hand. It is not easy to decipher the relative length of fingers, their setting, the relative strength of the mounts. I work by taking detailed measurements. Finally it is all about the merging of the different aspects of the hand and when signs seem to contradict each other. At times I mull on a hand for a day or two before I finally reach a conclusion. The time consuming nature of the work means that I cannot do it for free. However, brief and economical reading options are available for those who do not want to spend too much.

Also note that my fees are increased from time to time. Please write to me at blog(dot)nita(at)gmail(dot)com before you send me the photographs to get to know the current prices and choosing your option.


Payment Method:

1. The hand reading fee can be transferred via Paypal if you live outside India and even if you do not have a Paypal account you can still pay via Paypal using your credit card. Paypal is a very safe and secure system. The Paypal icon is on the right sidebar of this page. You will be asked to pay in USD. Just convert your own currency into dollars and put in the dollar amount. The bank does the rest.

Unfortunately Indian government rules do not allow payment via this method if you reside in India.

Money can also be directly deposited into my account from abroad if you prefer this method. I can send the bank account details including the swift code once I receive the photos.

2. The other alternative is via net-banking or a direct deposit, and works best for Indian residents. Money can be credited by either cash or cheque. This can be done from anywhere in India. I provide the bank details once I receive the photographs.

Thanks and email me for any clarifications.

Robert Pattinson's hand analysis

A cursory look at Robert Pattinson’s hands makes us believe that he is quite perfect in every way! A balanced and talented artiste, very capable and intelligent. Reasonable and honourable. In fact one feels that nothing can disturb the seeming equilibrium of his personality. However, deeper into the reading one realises that Robert Pattinson does have his weaknesses, like all of us do, whether famous or not.

What the hands tell us about Brad and Angelina's relationship

A comparison of the hands of Angelina Jolie and Jennifer Aniston reveal how very different they are as people. Jennifer is a serious, idealistic person. She is very talented and moody as well, with a tendency to brood. Angelina on the other hand is more casual about life, even flippant at times, and is always ready for adventure.

Both are aggressive and determined ladies, but Jennifer tends to be more overtly aggressive than Angelina, although at heart both of them are soft and vulnerable. That must the kind of woman that Brad is attracted to...strong and independent but soft inside.

Looking at it purely from what has been revealed by their hands, it does seem

Angelina Jolie's hand shows that she is fun to be with though she isn't serious enough!

Angelina, the famous Hollywood actress, can be a little too casual about life, and can lose focus. It’s almost as if an important cog in the serious business of life and living needs some tightening. This gives her personality an undesirable tilt and lack of balance. But she has other personality characteristics which have earned her fame and name. She has a certain force to her personality, she is a go-getter. Ambitious and dominating, she is an independent thinker who likes to follow through with action.

Tiger Woods hands reveal why he was unfaithful to his wife

The world is talking about star golfer Tiger Woods' infidelity, wondering why he was so bent on destroying his idyllic life by having one affair after another. What do his hands reveal? Do they explain the mystery of why he sabotaged his marriage and career?

I don't go by the idea that infidelity is "normal" for stars. Infidelity is an individual thing. When a person cheats on one's partner, it shows certain aspects of his/her character, whether he is a star or whether he is a person on the street. Rich people however do seem to get more opportunities.

When it comes to infidelity there are certain factors which come into play. Firstly one’s values, secondly one’s sex drive, thirdly one’s self-control and fourthly whether one is selfish and self serving, and lastly one’s love for one’s spouse - not necessarily in that order. Oh yes, there is also one more thing. Anyone who betrays his partner and is not in an "open" marriage, will find it difficult to keep it a secret. People who can manage to do so are capable of being fairly devious. Honest and straightforward people would find it tough difficult to keep their infidelity a secret from the person they live with, a person whom they possibly love.

Where does Tiger Woods stand on these qualities? What do his hands tell us?

Saurav Ganguly's hands reveal the secret of his success

Saurav (Sourav) Ganguly is a self-made man. Some might say he was born into a rich family, that he had all the privileges, and he must have got all that he needed to enable him to become an international cricketer and play for India. So how can he be self-made? Well, he is self made in the sense that what he is today is entirely due to his own efforts. He has achieved what he has by fighting against all odds. He shaped his  career without much support or encouragement from outside. One can say that he rebuilt his entire personality. What he was when he was born (inherited qualities) and what he is today are two different people. This man has changed his destiny. His fame and name they are all due to his own hard work, his own motivation and his struggle against his fate, a fate was in store for him when he was born. One cannot help feeling a certain amount of awe for a person such as this.


Saurav writes with his right hand and therefore it is his right hand which revealed who he is today. The left hand revealed his previous self, or rather what he was when he was a child. The left hand usually shows inherited qualities which are latent. The left hand can change too, but unless one has the prints of hands from an early age it is not possible to find this out.

His past and present self
First let me describe the major changes in his personality traits over
