Mamata Banerjee's hands tell us about her character

Is Mamata right for West Bengal? What type of personality does she have? This is what her hands tell us:

The hand reading of Mamata Banerjee

Mamata's hand shows strong, deep lines and apparently, she has two fatelines, both very different from each other. She has long second phalanges but short first phalanges, and slightly thick and short third phalanges. The heartline is longer than the headline. Her Jupiter (index) finger is high-set, the Saturn (middle) one is bent and the Mercury (little) finger is very long. The hand overall seems spatulate in shape and the thumb is long, and held close to her hand. When it comes to the mounts, lower Mars is developed as is lower Moon and Jupiter. What all of these hand features show is that Mamata Banerjee is a strong personality. But of course, everyone already knows that. But there are other aspects which may not be
so evident. What her hand shows is that she is not a thinker or strategist, nor much of a reader. It is doubtful that abstract concepts or ideas would appeal to her. At the same time, she is idealistic, impressionable and ruled by her heart. All of this clearly shows that as a leader, she would have weaknesses. She would be weak at any long-term strategy.

Check out her hand photo here and here.

The Chief Minister of West Bengal, Ms. Mamata BanerjeeShe may not be a superior strategist, but she sure is a smart and clever woman and has plenty of common sense and sufficient intelligence to enable her to thrive. Besides, she is very self-oriented and determined. She can be manipulative and shrewd. Her hand also shows a very high level of activity. Quick, clever and active, these qualities would take her far. Restlessness is evident too.

Her belief in a higher cause is limited despite her idealism but she is very ambitious, particularly for herself. Fame and power are both important and these desires will rule her life.

She is a proud and controlling person despite the modest persona. She would use manipulation to achieve her goals. She is also very independent and does what she feels is right, and does not care what others think.

She is not unreasonable though, nor willful. She would find it easy to compromise and is open to logic. Maybe her speaking from the hip would make her appear stubborn, but she is not. She is just outspoken and direct and also rather aggressive.

Mamta Banerjee can carry people along with her, and definitely, she has leadership ability. Maybe it is magnetism or charisma of a sort. She can speak from her heart and perhaps that is why she can do this. Pride, dogmatism and the ability to influence and control others is all seen on her hand.

She is a doer and has excellent will-power. She does not like to waste time in useless things and is focused on her goals. Very focused. People like her are likely to succeed in any venture they undertake. That is probably why her people put faith in her. They know that she is going somewhere, that she is going to do something. Although she could lack warmth and has this habit of keeping people at arm’s length, she does want to do good for the flock she leads. She makes promises, and she likes to deliver.

She understands people and is the type to get on the right side of the right people.

She does have a negative outlook towards life, One of Mamata’s traits is her pessimism and complaining nature and feelings of envy she could have towards others. And an imagination which could lead her astray by making her suspicious of others.

Note: Mamata Banerjee (popularly known as Didi) is the leader of the political party (Trinamool Congress).

There are readings on other Indian politicians like Akhilesh Yadav, Nitish Kumar, Uddhav Thackeray and Pratibha Patil as well.

  1. Seems like beyond their variety, politicians do have some common waiting for Ronaldo :D :D :D

  2. As a student of the Indian political environment, I largely agree with Nita. My major comment, not from hand-reading, but from my assessment of Mamata's character is that she is most unreliable and would let down if cultivating the persons or party does not serve her personal ambitions. She has done that to the NDA and also to her deputy, who resigned a couple of years ago.

  3. Vishesh, true, although the degree of their behavior differs. Some are worse than the others!
    And me too looking forward to reading Ronaldo's hand as I am curious about sports stars. Lets see what his hands reveal!

    Sudhir, thanks I never had too much respect for Mamata, and she is one politician I think over which I prefer the Communists and you know my view on the communists!

  4. Hi nita,
    Very interesting blog and a very good analysis! Kind of matches with her real life persona too.
    But I don't know if she'll be worse than the commies!

    Will check your other posts and comment in detail when time permits. Keep up the good work!

  5. Thanks! And if you have any request for any particular celebrity, do let me know. The only condition is that I find various photos of the person on the net and so if you give several names of popular well photographed people, I should be able to manage. Right now I am doing one western and one Indian alternatively.
    Thanks for the encouragement.

  6. Nita, if Mamata cannot become the CM, do you think Left will continue? Mamta could be worse but continuing with the Left could be suicidal for Bengal. Have you analysed Budha babu's hand?

  7. Hmm, it is question of the devil and deep blue sea! I think you can guess who I think the devil is! :) Well, it took 25 years for the Left to ruin Bengal, I think Mamta could have done it in five! Some ideology is better than none and I am saying that even though I detest commies. But then, that is my opinion. Somehow I do not like that lady Mamta.
    I have not seen Budha's hand, and maybe one of these days I will. Will keep that in mind.


  9. Shyamal, actually you are right about her. She is fairly honest if one compares her to other politicians in India and yes she is a doer.
