Prime Minister Manmohan Singh's personality characteristics

Dr. Manmohan Singh’s hand is that of a very intelligent man. Unfortunately, his hand also shows that he is not a strong leader, an accusation that is often hurled at him. However, he is not weak because he lacks will power and determination. So what is it about him that makes him fall prey to manipulation?

The shape of his hand shows that he is a broadminded and unselfish individual with noble ideals who will always put his country first. True, his four conic fingers tell us of too strong an idealism, and if it wasn’t for his thumb,

headline and the shape of his hand, one could well have dubbed him as an impractical dreamer. Check out one of his hand photos here. But for more photos, do check the web.

Dr. Manmohan Singh's thumb is strong, and shows his ability to achieve what he sets out to do. The headline and shape of the hand shows a practical bent of mind, enabling him to function well in the real world.

The length of his fingers further tell us that his ideas and plans are to achieve big things. He is impatient of delay. He likes to finish the jobs he undertakes, and his Lower Mars shows he is likely to meet obstacles with a quiet aggression and determination.

His finger knots, the stiffness of his hand and the thumb together tell a story. They tell us of his conservatism and his determination and steadfastness. His plans are never half-baked. The knots at the back of his hand in particular are a wonderful combination with his type of hand, as they show that the owner is a thinking type, and will do nothing without due deliberation of thought, meticulous planning and scheduling. In fact Manmohan Singh is organised and analytical to an extreme. He likes to pick things to pieces, study them, and make evaluations. This quality alongwith his excellent reasoning powers, strong concentration and memory (more so in his younger days) are a powerful potion for academic success.

His hands also show that he is meticulous about his physical surroundings and appearance.

His weaknesses?
The hand texture shows sensitiveness and refinement. Such a sign in men is significant, as it is not normally found on a man's hand. It often makes men's personalities almost effeminate. With their feminine side developed, coarseness and crassness causes actual pain.

Sensitiveness and refinement is one of the reasons which prevents Dr. Manmohan Singh from being a strong and domineering person. His thumb shows normal will power, sufficient for anyone to be successful in any sphere of life. But he needed an extra strong and dominating will because his sensitiveness coupled with an unwillingness to actually fight it out, confront and face unpleasantness softens his will. It prevents him from getting his own way. Manmohan Singh could also do with more resistance and doggedness in the face of opposition. His Upper Mount of Mars, although reasonably well developed is not as strong as his Lower Mars.

This shows that he will withdraw, not because he is afraid, but as his conic side shows, as a matter of principle and his ideals. Getting involved in a mental brawl or unpleasantness is repugnant to him. He will feel in his heart that  "Right" will win over "Might", that some good forces will make it happen. He will not dirty his hands.

Good balance
Overall, Manmohan Singh’s hands and fingers are well balanced. They show judgment, and the ability to see another’s point of view. His Jupiter and Saturn fingers tell us that he is honourable and religious. The Mercury finger gives him the power of expression. It tells us of a straightforward, simple and honest man. It makes us wonder what a man like him is doing in the murky world of Indian politics! But we already know that he was made the Prime Minister because those who knew him were aware that he was trusting, decent, and not hungry for power. A man they would find easy to manipulate. But soft or not, one cannot help but feel that Dr. Manmohan Singh is what India needs.

  1. he does come across as a soft person. Sort of tough to imagine him standing shoulder to shoulder with the lalus and goondas of the world and shouting...maybe that's why he doesn't contest Lok Sabha polls :)

  2. True, I think one of the reasons he doesn't contest is that he doesn't want to do the murky stuff which could come with it. Also I am quite sure he fears losing. If I am not mistaken, he had lost once.

  3. His thumb is long and shows success and a solid personality. What worries me his bent top phalanges of the index finger and flabby lower phalanges.

  4. Sudhir, in this photo his thumb seems long, but in actual fact it is just of average length, plus his will phalange is not strong. The top phalange of his Jupiter finger is not bent. I too thought it was at first but after examining several photographs I found out that that his first knots are highly developed so as to give this impression.
    Yes, his lower phalanges are a little flabby and that is not a good sign, but the good thing is that his lower phalanges are shorter than normal, if one compares them to his first and second phalanges. This reduces the reading of the lower phalanges. Normal third phalanges are the longest of all phalanges and his are shorter than this.

  5. In my reading I have said he has a strong thumb but that is because a good thumb with an average will phalange is strong. But unfortunately he has some softening influences which weaken it. He needed an extra strong thumb to counter his weakness, which in his case is strong idealism and sense of delicacy.

  6. I am personally very fond of Dr Manmohan Singh and I am happy to read your observation.
    Congress can use your post in their election campaign :)

  7. Thanks for your comment Prerna. I think the Congress will avoid my blog because of my analysis of the Gandhis!! :)

  8. The picture you have given is that from famous for it's satires. I laughed when i saw the picture. May be the picture is photoshopped and you have analysed the wrong hand...

  9. Ramanuj,
    Thanks for letting me know, I have provided another link.
    However if you have been reading my blog you would know that I do not read hands from just one picture. I read hands from at least a dozen or so pictures as public photos are usually not of the right resolution and not always at the right angle. After I finish reading the hand, I pick up a picture from the net and give a link, and this was done in this case.
    If you read the post carefully you will notice that the characteristics mentioned in the post about the hand do not match the picture so it is quite clear that I have not read Dr. Manmohan's Singh's hand from that picture from unrealtimes.
    Anyway, now the correction has been made, and once again, thanks.

  10. Nita man
    I have two head lines in both palms.can u say something.

    1. shikha, to explain two headlines one has to see their shape, quality and position. Also headlines have to be read in context of the hand shape, and in relation to the other lines. It is a mistake to read any line in isolation.

    2. Mam how can I show u my palm images.I searched for contact information like e mail but couldn't find.plz reply.I want you to see my palm.humble request.
