How much better is Mohamed Morsi as compared to Hosni Mubarak?

A  look at Mohamed Morsi’s hand can give a clue to the developments in Egypt. Morsi has a large fleshy palm, with some fingers bent, the index and little fingers conic and the thumb thick. The Headline is weak and uneven. These signs show a person with a lot of energy but the lines unable to carry forward this energy productively. As a result such people tend to be excitable, emotional, unpredictable, and

Deepak Chopra's hand reading

Dr. Deepak Chopra is a world famous "guru" who has written as many as 65 books but his hands don't appear to match! His slightly thick fingers which are on the shorter side, the low-set Mercury finger, developed mounts and thick third phalanges seem at odds with his intellectual and spiritual persona.

Delve a little deeper and a clearer picture emerges, although

The hand reading of Jaggi Vasudev (Sadhguru)

Jaggi Vasudev (Sadhguru) has strong thumb with a broad will phalange, a deep Heartline, a wide and well developed Venus mount, a broad palm, and fingers on the shorter side. The mounts on his palm are developed, but not excessively. All this indicates a person who is warm, with a love for all humanity and balanced in his emotions. It shows the qualities of loyalty, generosity, and complete engagement and faith in what he is doing, a broad outlook, and understanding of larger issues.

His weaknesses are his impulsiveness and lack of

Can Palmistry predict behavior?

Whether it is possible to predict future events by reading hands was discussed earlier, and this post addresses another question. Whether a person’s actions and behaviour can be predicted by the hand. As personality traits and even one’s inner psychology are clearly marked on the hand surely the hand should be able to predict behaviour?

Actually no. Reality is too complex for such a clear connection, and while this may be obvious to some, there are some who believe that hand reading or palmistry is a supernatural art which mysteriously predicts behaviour.

Will a person whose hand shows greed, steal? Will a highly sexed person be

Mitt Romney or Barack Obama?

Will Barack Obama continue in office or will Mitt Romney become America's next President ? Not an easy question to answer considering that palmar lines change. The greater the time lag between the “predicted” event and the current time, the greater the chances of the lines (and with it the future) changing.

When it comes to the impending U.S. presidential election on November 6th,  the question is whether the campaign strategy of the two presidential candidates will change dramatically in the run-up to the US presidential election. Even if it does not, even if it runs the way it is planned, what if some scandalous event is brought out of the closet and this revelation ruins a candidate’s fortunes? If all this

Dr. A.P.J. Kalam’s hand reading

Dr. A.P.J. Kalam’s scientific, intellectual, academic, and philosophic bent of mind is evident not just from his Headline, but also from his slim, knotted, waisted fingers, developed first phalanges and the Upper Moon. In combination these signs show that Dr. Kalam is an intellectual, and a person with an investigative mind-set, superior analytical ability, and great organization of thought.

Thinking comes naturally to these people, almost akin to breathing. They will usually plan and think about everything.  However,

The hand reading of Julia Roberts

Julia Roberts is always smiling in her photos, but her hands show that she is a very serious, intense and grounded person. This can be seen from her strong Saturn finger and the Saturn (Fate) line. Roberts is serious without being cynical, and that is a good balance. She is also grounded in reality, and is a hard-working, trustworthy and dependable person, confirmed by her Headline. Other signs like the long hand and square tips confirm the reading.

Her long and deeply etched Heartline and developed Venus show that she is very loyal and has a deep capacity for love and passion. Despite the Saturnian qualities, her hand shows her to be a

David Beckham's hand reading

David Beckham may have inherited great health and physical robustness but when it comes to his intelligence and talent, both are developed by sheer hard work and dedication. Beckham’s Headline is longer and better in the right active hand and this shows that he managed to enhance his intelligence, concentration, and focus.

His Lifeline and shape of hand shows energy, quickness, and skill, and while this is inherited, it is not nowhere near enough to make oneself into the kind of sports superstar that Beckham is all about. On the other hand,

Rajnikanth's Handreading

Rajnikant is not your typical narcissistic film star and his hands bear it out quite starkly. While the lowset Jupiter finger is a main indicator, there are other signs which emphasize Rajni’s simplicity, shyness, lack of vanity, and disinterest in living in a showy lifestyle. Notice the short and fairly slim lower phalanges, two conic tips, three straight fingers and the joint life and headlines.

On the downside, he is likely to have had

Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson - are they compatible?

The hands of Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson  show that these two people are very different from one another, especially at the deeper emotional level. Most of what they would have in common would be at a superficial level, if one goes by their hands. This could lead to serious issues in a long-term relationship. It's said that "opposites attract" but they

The magic behind Rajesh Khanna's super stardom

People agree Rajesh Khanna was the first superstar of the Hindi film industry but opinions are varied as to why. Some say it was the mannerisms, some the soft romantic voice, some the expressive eyes, and others felt it was the melodious music he acted out. Khanna's hands are able to give us some insight into the question. They can explain why this man moved the hearts of millions of people, especially women. To put it simply,

Kate Middleton and the hands of the British Royals

Does Kate Middleton, Duchess of Cambridge, fit into the royal family of Britain – temperament wise? Are her values similar to that of the royal family? If one compares the hands of various members of the Windsor family, then the answer is more of a yes rather than a no. Although Kate is temperamentally different, there is a similarity, especially if one thinks back to how at odds Princess Diana was with

Will Pranab Mukherjee make a good President?

Pranab Mukherjee, India’s finance minister and a veteran politician is set to become India's new President and luckily I was not short of photos of his hand. His intelligence, balanced and logical thinking, pragmatism and reasoning abilities are all clearly marked on his hand, not just on his Headline, but also revealed by his long, well-shaped, well-set Thumb and the length of the phalanges. However, there is evidence of fixed and set

Hand Reading of Lady Gaga

Lady Gaga is well-known for her philanthropy as well as her singing, and the philanthropy part is clearly marked on her hand. Her left hand (she is left-handed) clearly shows that this feeling (of wanting to help the underprivileged) comes from deep within her. This is shown not just by the position and length of her thumb, but also the shape of her Jupiter finger as well as her Heartline. She may not come across as immediately warm or

The hand reading of Miley Cyrus

Fragile is what leaps into one’s mind after looking at Miley Cyrus’ hands. No, this doesn't mean that she is particularly weak; just sensitive. Although she is sensitive herself, she has a tendency to be direct, not diplomatic. Not that she is boorish, not at all. It’s just that she likes to get to the point, preferring realism over rhetoric. However, her expressive abilities are good and she can

Bruce Lee's hands do not show a violent nature

If there ever was a legend, it was Bruce Lee. And if there’s a hand I’ve been curious about, it’s his. While examining his hands I looked for signs of violence, and perhaps I might have found what I was looking for if I had a clear picture of his lines. But after sifting through scores of pictures of his hands I could just about see the shape of his hand and fingers, and one picture showed me a glimpse of the lines.

What struck me immediately after going through Lee’s hand pictures was that he had

Is Justin Beiber as innocent as he looks?

Looking at Justin Beiber’s cherubic and innocent face makes one believe that he is an innocent. His hand shows otherwise. It takes awhile for a personality to become etched on the face, and in Justin’s case, it will take another decade or so. It was a little odd to see that Justin's sweet grin hides a deep seriousness of personality.
What strikes one when looking at his hand is

Hand Reading of Akhilesh Yadav

The hands of Akhilesh Yadav (the present Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh in India), show great ambition. He is very shrewd and street-smart, and is also practical, if a little materialistic. His hand also shows that he is manipulative. If Akhilesh has a fault it is his intensely

The difference between Jensen Ackles and Jared Padalecki

This post not only explores the difference between Jared Padalecki and Jensen Ackles, it also explores the difference between their fictional selves.

Fiction and reality are separate – of course. But there could be similarities between the role a character plays and his/her own persona. Either because the actor is attracted to a role (which reminds him of himself) or because the director/producer thinks he/she fits it. Even if some similarities exist, they are likely to be

Syedna Mohammed Burhanuddin's hand reading

When I look at the hand of a spiritual leader I primarily look for qualities of ascetism, a philosophical bent of mind, idealism, belief, objectivity of thinking, and ofcourse, compassion. These qualities go a long way in giving the owner the bent of mind suitable for a spiritual calling. I was not disappointed in the hands of Dr. Syedna Mohammed Burhanuddin, a spiritual leader of the Dawoodi Bohras.

The main features of his rather large, slightly long hands are

Can Palmistry predict future events?

Palmistry does not lay out a fixed destiny for anyone. Your Character is your Destiny. If the hand shows some future trends, it is based on the behavior, attitudes and character of the person the way he/she is today. If the person changes, so does the future. Significant changes in character usually happen due to conscious effort or due to the impact of momentous events. One of my favorite films is "Back to the Future" and though simplistic, it encapsulates what I am saying.

If people believe that palmistry is about predictions, this is because this was what traditional palmistry was about ancient times and the middle ages! Palmistry has been about mysterious signs, lines and symbols all predicting dire things but every single line or so-called sign has to read in conjunction with the rest of the hand. Would we accept the knowledge of the middle ages in any other field? Would we accept that the earth was flat? Or that diseases can be cured by blood-letting? Ofcourse not! So let us celebrate modern hand-readers like say Johnny Fincham or Richard Unger and realise that the knowledge base in the field of palmistry is growing by leaps and bounds.

It is one's insecurity which makes one crave reassurance about future events, so be suspicious of any hand reader or palmist who promises you an unchanging future.

Modern palmists now call themselves chirologists or hand-readers to distinguish themselves from the ancient predictive type of palmistry, but it doesn't matter whether you are a physicist of the 16th century or the 21st century, you are still a physicist. It is the same with palmists, or hand-readers.

People have questioned me exhaustively on this aspect, at times on email, and at times on this blog. In this post I will answer the frequently asked questions (FAQ's) on this most intriguing aspect of palmistry -Predicting the Future.

Shahid Kapoor's hand reading

The major features of Shahid Kapoor’s hand are the wide palm, evenly set fingers (except Mercury), well developed knots, strong and long Heartline, balanced Headline and strong Moon and Upper Mars Mounts. These shows his imaginative and creative personality, above average intelligence and broad thinking. From the shape of his hand and fingers Shahid comes across as an unselfish, broadminded and passionate guy with a big heart. At a personal level he would make a good partner because of

Tom Cruise's hand reading

If there was a single quality that one had to pick as a reason for Tom Cruise’s success, a quality without which he would never have made it, then it would be charisma. That is what his hands show. He has charisma and this gives him a persona that can charm, persuade and hypnotize. Several signs on his hand like the heavily developed Venus, the strong Moon mount, the position of the Head and Heart lines and the open thumb point towards this reading. The gap between his Head and Life lines is ideal as well: not too much, not too little. This shows that Tom has

Nitish Kumar's Hand Reading

Nitish Kumar’s hand (Chief Minister of Bihar) is one of the best hands that I have seen of any Indian politician so far. I could not see any serious flaw in the personality of Nitish Kumar. He is certainly more than worthy of the chair he holds…and more. 

His hands are on the larger side with an even length of fingers slightly tapering at the end, and the palm is

Does Charlie Sheen have an addictive personality?

Some personality characteristics have been associated with substance abusers, many of which (experts say) are inherited. I thought it would be interesting to see if Charlie Sheen’s hands showed any of these characteristics and whether they were inherited. According to research, these are some of the personality traits
