Muhammad Ali was humble at heart


Muhammad Ali proclaimed himself to be great and then went on to prove it. He was a flamboyant personality, known to brag about his achievements, past, present and future. That is probably why people think of Muhammad Ali as someone with high confidence levels and a big ego. His hands tell a different story.

Ali had a fleshy hand, with a rectangular palm and pronounced mounts of Venus and Moon. Lower Mars is developed, but not Upper Mars. His fingers are not

Freddie Mercury – a brilliant life cut short

Freddie Mercury was a rock star whose last days were tragic but he left behind a great musical legacy. With his incredible stage presence and incomparable voice, he became a Rock icon. He died at the age of 45, and his hand shows that his natural lifespan was a long one. Had he not been struck down by AIDS, he would have lived to a ripe old age.

Freddie's lifeline was good (clear and long) and it shows that his natural health (before the disease claimed it) was excellent. The lifeline never shows the length of life but it does show the natural lifespan if one is not attacked by disease or killed by accident. Of course, it is likely that some changes in the hand happened later (and not just with the lifeline) but when the photograph was taken, in the seventies, Freddie Mercury’s natural health is shown to be excellent. This just proves that the palm can never predict death.

Freddie Mercury's heartline is the best line on this hand. It is gently curving and well etched. However, his hand shows that the three main lines on his hand, (Heart, Head and Life) were a little weak in childhood. We know he spent his childhood in India, his musical birthplace. It is very likely that he wasn’t happy or emotionally engaged with his life at the time. Perhaps he didn’t

Christopher Nolan – a brilliant director

Christopher Nolan, the Hollywood movie director, is known to be a genius. It is difficult to write about Chris Nolan (the Dark Knight Trilogy and Inception are some of his famous works), especially as one has so little to work with. The photos of his left hand (he is left-handed) which are available on the net are few and also hazy.

The shape of his hand is clearly visible, however. His hands are large, with a broad palm, and seem to be a little stiff. The fingers, tapering at the end, are neither short nor too long, and appear to be evenly set except for the Mercury (little) finger which is a little low-set. His heartline is curved, and the headline though sloping

Marlon Brando - a large-hearted genius


Marlon Brando is a legend. His hands make it clear why he became the star that he was.

Brando had fairly large hands, with a broad, fleshy palm and a long, curvy heartline going towards the area between his first two fingers. He had a shapely thumb of a good size, and it was low-set, nicely waisted, and had a strong will phalange. The mounts of Lower Mars, Venus and Upper Moon were the most well developed mounts on his hands. The other mounts were developed too. The lines seem clear enough and there is a semblance of a double headline. This second headline

Abraham Lincoln's hands reveal his true self

Much has been much written about Abraham Lincoln’s personality traits. His character has in fact been elevated to that of the perfect human being.
Do these lofty opinions of Lincoln's character match the signs on his hand?

The adjectives used to describe Abe Lincoln make him appear to be flawless. He was known to be sincere, simple, persistent, modest, guileless, humble, loving, compassionate, warm, forgiving, generous, fair, responsible, helpful, thoughtful and non-materialistic. And he was an independent thinker who was also energetic, hard-working, realistic,  straightforward, controlled, disciplined, cautious, ethical, intellectual and possessed integrity, wisdom and a sense of humour.

If he had any faults at all it was his introversion and his melancholic and detached personality. One cannot help but wonder how a person can be loving and warm and also introverted and detached? Has Abe Lincoln's personality become the stuff of myth and legend now that he has been gone for over 150 years?

Is Kamal Hassan suited to a political career?

What do Kamal Hassan's hands tell about his personality? He has well-developed mounts of Lower Mars, Jupiter, Venus and Moon – above normal development. However, this is more pronounced on his left, passive hand. The first and second knots of his fingers are developed, and the fingers are straight and slightly thick, particularly the third phalanges. The little (Mercury) finger is of a good length and held apart, while the middle (Saturn) finger could well be short. The first phalanges are not particularly long, but the second phalanges are good and the Jupiter (index) finger is conic. The thumb is long, with a strong first phalange. The heartline is better as compared to the headline, in the sense that it is more even. The heartline is also long and forked, although it is slightly shorter on the right, active hand.

What do these signs show about his personality? Would he be a better actor or a better politician? Or could he excel in both careers?

Kim Kardashian is not your regular airhead

One would have expected that Kim Kardashian’s hands would be that of a superficial, vain and artificial person. Instead, I found myself looking at the hands of a down-to-earth, savvy woman. Considering her high net-worth, this wasn't surprising.

Kim Kardashian, a reality TV star from the United States, has normal sized hands, with a good balance of the fingers and the palm. The Venus mount is developed and so is the middle part of the Moon mount. None of the mounts on her palm are excessively developed and her head and heart lines are long and in their proper place on the palm, neither set too low or too high. The thumb is normal length and the will phalange is good, although the thumb is held close to her palm and could be a little high-set. The fingers are broad but the first and second phalanges are of a good length. She has a long Mercury (little) finger which is slightly bent, a short Saturn (middle) finger and a slightly bent Jupiter (index) finger.

All these signs reveal a person who is clever, calculating and

Mukesh Ambani's hand reading

Mukesh Ambani's personality can be to some extent seen from his hands. He has large palms with fingers on the shorter side. The first and second phalanges of his fingers are all long, significantly so. This by itself makes his hand stand out. There is no doubt that Mukesh Ambani’s intellectualism, energy, and business acumen is significantly above average.

Unfortunately, there are no photographs of Ambani’s left, passive hand which would have revealed his inherited personality and also served as a comparison to his right hand. Considering that Mukesh Ambani is Dhirubhai’s son, we must assume that

What Ranveer Singh's hands tell us about him

When I looked at Ranveer Singh’s hands I was sure I would find signs of an extroverted and bold personality because that is the impression he gives. Besides, as he works in the movies, it was likely that he was actually extroverted. To my surprise, his hands showed the opposite!

Ranveer has shortish fingers, a broad, wide palm, and deep lines of Head, Life and Heart. His headline is tied to the lifeline and is not too high or too low on the hand. It goes across the hand in a fairly straightforward manner but does not go to the percussion. The heartline is curving and rises towards the space between the first two fingers. The mounts of Venus, Moon (more so the middle part) and Jupiter are developed. The first (Jupiter) finger is a little bent and the first phalanges of his fingers are long but

The hands of The Rock: Dwayne Johnson

Writing about Dwayne Johnson’s hands isn’t easy as most of his personality characteristics are well known to the world. He is an open person, perhaps that is why. What new character attribute can his hands reveal? Maybe one can find something on his hand that isn’t so obviously known or something which doesn’t fit his known personality.

Dwayne, a tall man (he is six feet four inches in height) with large, fleshy hands and broad and wide palms, a low-set widely held thumb and heavily developed Moon and Venus mounts and Mars too. The lifeline, slightly apart from the headline, sweeps across the developed mount of Venus, going wider into the palm as it goes forward. These signs reveal his

Is MJ Akbar a sexual predator?

After the spate of sexual harassment allegations faced by MJ Akbar (a newspaper editor and ex-minister in the Indian government), I looked at his hands to see if there was something on his hands which explained it. It was shocking to hear that a man with such a formidable reputation and a family, should get himself into the news in this unsavoury manner

His hands are a good size and the fingers long and slim, with significantly long first phalanges. He has sensitive pads on the tips of his fingers, and the main lines are fairly clear. The Saturn (Fate) line starts early and is quite dark until well into the forties. The Apollo (Sun) line is clear too and visible from a young age, an unusual marking for a journalist. The palm is slightly rectangular, not too much, and the lower mount of Mars is very highly developed, along with the Jupiter mount. The rounded tips of his fingers, the strong heartline (stronger than the head line) and the long thumb all tell us a story.

Take a look at his hands at the link provided here. (The photo of MeToo published on this post is a free photo from Pexels.)

These hands clearly belong to someone who has been

Martin Luther King Jr.

There are few hands which are as simple to read as the hands of Martin Luther King Jr. Simple because there are fewer lines on his hand and the other hand features are easy to recognise for what they are. There is a lot of information about him on the net, but here you can get details Martin Luther King Jr. which are revealed by studying his hand.

Unlike some other hands where one has to examine a hand from several angles to decide whether the thumb is low-set or high-set or just normally set. No such problem arises when one is reading MLK’s hands. The thumb is long and clearly low-set, with a good balance of the phalanges. And the lines on this hand are clear and dark, with the minor lines missing. His fingers are all straight, with long first and second phalanges and the Jupiter finger is short. The heartline is long and curved, the headline more or less straight and the mounts of Jupiter, Venus and lower Mars are well developed.

Interestingly, the fateline is not visible after the age of 40 years. MLK was assassinated at the age of 39. This does not mean that
