Julian Assange's hands reveal that he is not a predator!

Julian Assange, the founder of WikiLeaks has said he is a gentleman, not a predator. I assume he means sexual predator, something that he has been accused of. Does his hand corroborate his claim? Well, certain features of his hand like the underdeveloped Plain of Mars, the refined palmar skin, the slightly waisted thumb, the shape and length of his phalanges and sensitive tips do suggest that he is the gentleman he says he is. The developed Venus and Heart Line tell us he has strong passions (sexual), but that by itself never made anyone a predator although the line between the two can be a thin one. As Assange’s hand does not show the robustness of health, particularly later on in life, this interest in sex would manifest itself in ways other than just the physical.

Another question people ask about Julian Assange is: What are his motives for founding WikiLeaks? Does he really have altruistic motives as he claims? We are

Indra Nooyi's hand analysis

Indra Nooyi’s hand is a complicated one. Each of us is an interesting mix of different personality traits, and successful people usually have one or two main features that are behind their success. Nooyi's hand is unique as it is of a very intelligent person but strongly influenced by the heart. These two opposing aspects of her character have managed to exist in tandem with each other.

What her hand has in common with other very successful people

Hand Reading of Jennifer Lopez

Before I checked Jennifer Lopez's hand I believed that the rumours about her being a Diva were totally untrue. The hand has a story to tell, however, and not all of it was great. But all said and done I still have a soft spot for Jennifer Lopez as compared to many other celebs. I always thought of her as a hardworking and talented woman and the hand does not contradict that part.

Jennifer's thumb is long and well shaped, showing will-power and determination. Talent is present in a good amount, with several signs pointing to it. She had a well-developed mount of Moon and Mercury, a long Mercury (little) finger and a gently sloping, good quality balanced headline. Her talent may not put in the genius league but it is of the kind that makes her money.

There are distinct signs on her hand which point to her being controlling and

Ranbir Kapoor or Imran Khan - Whose hand and future is better?

Ranbir and Imran are the two stars on the Bollywood horizon and they couldn’t be more different. Whose hand is better? Can their hands tell who will outpace the other? And what does the hand tell us about their personalities? A comparison of their hands can indeed tell who is better suited to the acting profession and who will make waves, although I am restricted by the poor quality of their hand photographs available on the net.

First, let’s check out their acting talent. The shape

Quentin Tarantino's hand analysis

After reading the hands of two renowned movie directors (Steven Spielberg and Alejandro Jodorowsky) one expected a similar level of creative talent from the hand of Quentin Tarantino, the director who directed Reservoir Dogs and Kill  Bill. From this point of view, his hand is disappointing. His hand does not match the hype associated with his name. However, it makes up in other ways.

Let me emphasize, his hand does show talent, just not

Laxmi Mittal's Hand Reading

In today’s world, there is much hype about a great personality, talent and ability. Successful people no doubt have that, but the part that their energy levels play is often underestimated. Steel tycoon Laxmi Mittal for example (the richest Indian in the world), is admired for his business savvy brain, which he no doubt has, and a superior one at that. But his hand also shows

Michelle Yeoh's hands show her to be different

Michelle’s Yeoh’s hands are quite different from a typical actor's hands. Her hands show her to be a practical, down-to-earth woman, with a broad and unselfish outlook on life. She is far less immersed in herself than other actors. In other words, she appears to lack that quintessential quality of narcissism, which actors often possess.

Research has indicated that actors/celebrities are more narcissistic than the general population. The research shows that while men in the general population are more narcissistic than women, in the celeb world it is the femme fatales who are

Priyanka Chopra's hands show her to be a passionate woman

Priyanka's hands tell us that she is a complex personality. Someone who is warm, loving, romantic and straightforward, but also manipulative and quite impractical at times. One cannot help but wonder: Who is she really? What is she really like in her real life?

The shape of the hand is an important indicator of personality and Priyanka's hand shape shows her to be a

The Dalai Lama's hand analysis

His Holiness Dalai Lama is the spiritual and political leader of Tibet. As a palmist and hand reader, one would expect significant differences between his passive and active hands because his life changed dramatically when he was a child and this would have impacted his personality and the future. The passive hand shows inherited qualities (in Dalai Lama's case his left hand is the passive . one) and the right active hand would show the current state of his mind. The Dalai Lama was born in a poor family and his name was Lhamo Thondup. If he had not been “recognized” as the Dalai Lama he would have led an ordinary life.

Two positive aspects of the Dalai Lama’s (inherited) character are his intelligence and

Salman Khan's hands tell us that he is impulsive

Salman Khan’s hand, fingers and palm have a good shape from the palmistry angle, but there is a slight imbalance in the development of the Mounts. The mounts of Venus, Moon and Mars are well developed, and make this indicates that is personality is strongly influenced by the qualities of these mounts. The question that arises is: Are their other character traits shown on this hands which will balance this out?

Deep passion, fighting qualities, high aggression and imagination need to

Jacob Zuma's hand analysis

Jacob Zuma’s hands tell us why he became the President of South Africa. He is far more than just a capable man - he is a master strategist and a pragmatist as well. Zuma has his weaknesses, but he is fairly straightforward, with a strong belief in a cause, and a love for his country.

In some ways, Zuma’s hands are very well balanced. Hands and fingers and palm are well shaped, fingertips square and the thumb good. This indicates a person with an overall balance of personality, a broad outlook on life, common sense and leadership qualities. The part of the hand that shows weakness is the

What do Suresh Kalmadi's hands tell us?

A comparison of Suresh Kalmadi's (politician and sports administrator in India) right and left hands tells us that his destiny changed because he changed. He writes with his right hand, and thus his right hand tells us about his current state of mind and the left his inherited qualities.

Kalmadi's hands show that he developed his intelligence and organisational ability to a fairly high degree (Head Line changed shape and increased in strength). This is entirely due to his own efforts as these qualities did not come to him on a platter of inheritance. This may not have turned him into an intellectual or anyone with exceptional organising ability, but it did make him a very smart and sharp man. He is also a man of action, a doer (shape of thumb) and this adds to his capability. His weakness, according to his hand, is that he can get bogged down

Albert Einstein's hand analysis

Those born with a great intellect and a creative mind are considered lucky. Those who grow up in an environment which enhances their best qualities are considered very lucky indeed. Albert Einstein was lucky enough to have had both.

Two aspects of his hand leap out at you. The long, balanced and deeply etched
headline shows not just a fine mind but a mind with a high level of concentration and mental stamina, which is as important as intelligence. The curved, well developed Mount of Moon reveals immense creativity. It is the Middle Mount of Moon which is the most developed, and when combined with his kind of headline, tells the tale of an inventor.

What better combination than a fine intellect, mental stamina and creative genius? Well, a person needs something more -

Omar Abdullah's hand reading

His political inheritance catapulted him into the Chief Minister's chair in the Indian state of Jammu & Kashmir. When one comes from an eminent political family the person’s suitability for the job is rarely questioned. But a study of the hand invariably reveals the truth.

Perhaps Omar Abdullah would have done well in a country with less politics in politics, Britain for instance. The way he is, he will find it tough

Alejandro Jodorowsky's hands show his genius

Reading the hands of exceptional and brilliant people makes my heart skip a beat. I may not be lucky enough to meet these geniuses in real life, but I am privileged to be able to delve into their minds. In a way it is more gratifying than meeting and shaking their hands.

Alejandro Jodorowsky is a well known Chilean film-maker who is also known as a spiritual guru. I had not heard of him until a reader requested me to read his hands. Unfortunately, with so few photographs of his hands available on the internet this proved to be a difficult task. However, I was persuaded to read with whatever little I had. This is a brief reading.

The most striking aspect of Jodorowsky’s hands are his strong

Rajiv Gandhi's hands show that he was shy

Rajiv Gandhi’s hands show some qualities of a leader, but they also show that he lacked boldness, independence and self-confidence. Cautiousness, sensitiveness and diffidence were a part of him. He inherited a shy nature (shown by the left hand which in his case is the dormant hand) which was enhanced due to his environment.

It is generally believed that he had charisma. He was good-looking but he was too shy a man possess charisma, at least in

Hand analysis of Ayatollah Khomeini

Grand Ayatollah Seyyed Ruhollah Mousavi Khomeini (1902-1989), Iran’s first Supreme Leader, has an interesting hand, and one that collaborates his achievements and also tells us something about his personality. He was a holy man, but does his hand shows that he was genuine?

One significant character trait quite noticeable in his hand is his charisma. He has been criticized by the non-Muslim world, but it is clear why people in Iran revere him even now, years after his death. He was a true leader, in both the spiritual and political sense.

The development of the mount of Venus on his hand, along with the long thumb and the slight gap between his head and lifeline shows that he was unselfish, warm, confident, and loved his people intensely. His strong leadership qualities not only tell us that he had great self-control and control over others, but that he was

Ustad Zakir Hussain's hand analysis

Wen Jiabao's hand analysis

Wen Jiabao, the Chinese Prime Minister, has a hand that shows a love for his country and also strong idealism. In fact, he can be almost obsessive when it comes to his beliefs, sticking to his ideas and beliefs even when it seems impractical. Not many modern politicians have this sign because modern politicians compromise at the drop of a hat. Jiabao, on the other hand, is driven by his ideals. It is very likely that in his heart of hearts, the reforms that China is undertaking do not

Aamir Khan's hand analysis

Aamir Khan, a leading Indian actor and director, has a complex hand. It comes across as belonging to a strong-willed person with vision, intelligence and talent. The contradiction lies in the fact that he can be quite unreasonable despite being intelligent, mean despite a strong compassionate side, and he may give in to his physical self despite enormous self-control.

The shape of his palm is broad, and he has shortish fingers, with good first and second phalanges. The Mercury (little) finger is long, and most of his fingers have squarish tips, and all this shows

Steven Spielberg's hand analysis

If I had not known that Steven Spielberg was a film director I just might have mistaken him for an inventor, although a money-making one. His fingers, headline, fingertips, phalanges, and Upper Mount of Moon reveal his imagination, creativity, intelligence and a strong desire for worldly success.

Spielberg was not born this ingenious. Although he inherited a high intelligence, he had an average

Kiran Bedi's hand analysis

Kiran Bedi, a retired Indian Police Service (IPS) officer, and currently a social activist, has hands that all administrators should have. The shape of her hands shows her breadth of vision, common sense, pragmatism, thoughtfulness and analytical ability. Her thumb is excellent, long and well-shaped. This tells us about her strong leadership ability. The ability to control others and herself. All is not perfect about her, however, and no one knows this better than she herself. There is a certain inner

Roger Federer and Mirka - compatibility analysis from the shape of their hands

Roger Federer and his wife Mirka (Miroslava Vavrinec) are great together. Both are analytical, thoughtful people. From
the analysis of their hands, it is clear why they were attracted to each other in the firsts place, and why they are still together. Their hands show that they are mentally and temperamentally compatible even though their relationship may not be a smooth one. No relationship is. The problems they could face are explained later on in the post.

The most important aspect of any relationship is getting along, being good friends. For this, the couple needs to be on the same mental level and this is where Roger Federer and Mirka score. They both have long first phalanges for example and a similarity in the shape of their hands.

Check out hand photographs of Roger's here and Mirka's here.

Roger Federer has a broad palm, medium length fingers, a slightly high-set, tapering thumb of average length, long first phalanges, average second phalanges, prominent mounts of Moon, Venus and Lower Mars. His lines are not quite straight and are long. Mirka has a similar shape of hand, but more flexible with longer second phalanges. The mounts that are developed on her hand are different. Her Venus is not that developed but her Moon is, particularly the Lower Moon mount and her Mars mounts are developed as well, although not so much Lower Mars. Her lines are stronger and straightish.

Roger is consumed with his game and his work but managing money or getting involved in the mundane organisational details of life is secondary to him. Mirka is the manager type. Money matters would be important for Mirka. She is the doer, has the executive ability and Roger much less of it. In fact, Roger's thumb shows impressionability and idealism as well. He could be a bit of a dreamer, but Mirka has her feet solidly on the ground.

Roger is a willful character and can be quite aggressive, which is a great quality in competitive sports though not so great in one's personal life. But Mirka is no pushover. She too is willful and strong, but luckily not as wilful as Roger and certainly not as aggressive. However, she is the kind who would stand her ground. A weaker and less confident person could have been overwhelmed by Roger. Mirka has more resistance and mental strength as compared to Roger and this also means that she would be a source of support to him mentally. He is not that strong inwardly.

Any friction?
Like in all relationships, this couple too have their conflicts. These would arise because (from the point of view of Roger) Mirka is not easy to persuade and could possibly have a temper. Although her head is firmly on her shoulders, he may not always see it that way. Both are articulate and it is likely that they would argue a great deal which is a good thing as they would talk to each other. Mirka may not be overly aggressive but handling Roger would not be easy as he is a sensitive person who could withdraw into himself. He can be quite moody.

She is moody too although less sensitive, less idealistic and less impressionable. She does have a tendency to be more suspicious, at times her imagination getting the better of her. He tends to be more solitary, more cynical, more negative, and worse, can get depressed. He is more vulnerable than her.

In overall personality balance Mirka wins. She is a strong woman who can hold her own. She does not get easily discouraged, sees the positive in life more easily, and is not as hard on herself like Roger is. She is also more flexible and is willing to change and adjust. She is straightforward and direct. Roger may not be overly dominating, but he more selfish and can be controlling and aggressive.

In terms of sexuality, Roger has more sex drive amongst the two and can be quite warm and passionate.

These two are very lucky to have found each other. Not only are they on the same wavelength, but they also seem to be able to compensate for each other's flaws and would work well as a team. At one level they are similar - both thoughtful, imaginative people who are disciplined, controlled and focused. They are likely to be able to understand each other.

(This compatibility analysis is on the request of a reader)

Sivananda Saraswati and the comparison of Gurus Old and New

The difference between modern gurus and the gurus of yesteryear

There is a great difference between the modern gurus and the older ones, and that is an understatement. Their hands are also very different.

On this blog I have analysed the hands of just one ancient guru so far, the Shirdi Sai Baba, who died in 1918 (birth date unknown). He is now a saint or Godman. His hands are far superior to the hands of the other modern gurus that

Hand analysis of Venus and Serena Williams

People are not sure why Serena Williams is doing better than her sister Venus in the game of tennis. Some say Serena’s advantage lies in her personality - her mean streak. A comparison of Serena and Venus (from their hands) tells a different story, and an intriguing one at that. Intriguing because both Venus and Serena have marked differences between their right and left hands. This by itself speaks of an unusual childhood, a childhood which altered

Vijay Mallya's hand analysis

The hand of industrialist Vijay Mallya tells us that he is determined and ambitious, and his hands seem to collaborate most of what is known about him. However, they also reveal an aspect of his personality that is not so well known.

The mount of Jupiter, Venus, Moon, Mars, Apollo and to some extent Mercury, are highly developed on Mallya's hand, and they tell a story. When read together they tell us that Mallya is excitable and charismatic, short-tempered, aggressive, moody, and ambitious. These traits give a superficial view of his personality, and one needs to peel off the outer layers to discover

Paris Hilton's hand analysis

Without seeing the lines on her palm clearly it is difficult to say where Paris Hilton is heading but she definitely has it in her to succeed in any venture she undertakes. Her personality as shown by her hand reveals strong willpower (thumb) and talent (Apollo finger phalanges). Specifically, her hand shows that she has business and financial sense (shape of her middle phalanges). She was born with it. Not surprising, considering her genes. She is the great grand-daughter of Conrad Hilton (founder of Hilton Hotels). There is little difference between her left and right hands and this shows a childhood

Mother Theresa's hands tell us who she was

The primary personality characteristic that Mother Theresa is associated with is her philanthropy. And sure enough, this particular quality is etched on several parts of her hand. The more the number of signs pointing to a certain personality trait, the stronger the indication.

The setting, size and shape of Mother Theresa's thumb tell a story. As mentioned in earlier posts, the thumb tells a great deal about the person. Mother Theresa’s thumb tells us about her self-control and leadership abilities. Strength and determination were the backbones of her character but more important was her ability to

Adolf Hitler's hand reading shows him to be a poor specimen of humanity

Adolf Hitler is a well-known mass murderer. One assumes that his violent nature ideals about a “pure” race. However, psychological profiles of all mass murderers are not the same. In Hitler’s case, his hands reveal that his murderous nature has less to do with his so-called ideals and more to do with his coarse and brutish temperament.

The development of the lower part of his hand as well as his lower phalanges points to the fact that he lived on a low, sensual plane. Such people enjoy their own pleasures above all else.

It's hard to read the hand of someone like Hitler because invariably one has strong feelings when it comes to him and this can influence the reading however hard one tries to be objective. He is the greatest villain in history!

Bal Thackeray's hands tell us about his character

Balasaheb Thackeray has some very good qualities, as revealed by his hand. He has genuine ideals and beliefs. He is high-minded, righteous, and is an honourable man. He has ethics and strong beliefs and is probably religious. He always had these qualities. It's probably these very traits which drew people to him. He has the ability to inspire people, and it is likely that over the years he developed leadership qualities. He was not born a strong leader, as is evident from

David Cameron's hand reading

It is interesting to compare the hand of David Cameron, the new Prime Minister of Britain, with that of the ex-PM, Gordon Brown. If one compares them as human beings, if one compares their character, then Gordon Brown wins.

Cameron's personality is more controlling and manipulative than Brown (shape of his Jupiter (index) finger, Mars Mounts and the shape of his hand), although to be fair to Cameron, both he and Brown are control freaks. Brown is however quite pugnacious and argumentative, and this can grate on people’s nerves. Cameron on the other hand is

Lalit Modi's hand analysis

Lalit Modi’s hands reveal that he is a proud and ambitious person who has a strong desire for power. Wanting power badly is a very common trait in successful people and when people possess leadership qualities the outcome is usually a good one. But when the hunger for power is not accompanied by leadership qualities it can lead to not such a good outcome.

If one looks at his hand features, he has a long, closely-held, slightly high-set thumb, strong mounts of Moon, Jupiter and Mars. medium length fingers with the Jupiter (index) finger

Jose Mourinho's hand analysis

Not all successful people’s hands are impressive (if one takes into account the whole personality) but Jose Mourinho (famous Portuguese football coach) is an exception. His hands are well balanced, telling us not just about his skill and ambition but also his objective thinking and reasonableness. The latter traits are present to a high degree and make this man exceptional. He will not be biased when it comes to taking decisions and will do so with a remarkably cool head and neutrality.

These qualities are a boon in most professions but it is unlikely that Jose Mourinho would have been equally successful as

Swami Nithyananda's hand analysis

Swami Nithyananda's hand is not very good if one compares it to the hands of other famous (or successful) people. It shows average if not weak willpower. In addition, his hand shows that he is more than ordinarily selfish, although not narrow-minded. Of late he has been embroiled in scandals and the question is: Is this shown on his hand?

The answer is a resounding

Nicole Kidman's hand reading

Nicole Kidman’s hands tell us that she is a refined non-aggressive person, a person who is controlled and disciplined in her life. These qualities almost leap out at you from the shape of her hands and fingers but there is a lot more to her that this.

Money is not important
To understand her it is important to note that money does not matter much to her (shape of her Headline, Mercury Finger and Mount, third phalanges) but fame does. Her Apollo Finger clearly tells us that she strongly

MF Hussain's hand analysis

Reading MF Hussain's hands was more difficult than I imagined. He is a man with many layers to his personality. MF Hussain's paintings are world famous but there has always been some kind of controversy attached to his name.

Regarding his hand, usually, there is some consistency in the length of the phalanges of the different fingers, but in Hussain’s case, there isn’t. This points to inconsistent character traits.

The world knows him as a talented painter, and this talent is evident in his hand. A mix of different qualities has enabled him to be successful in the world of art. His Apollo finger, which is longer than normal, and its phalanges are an indication of

Johnny Depp's hand analysis

Johnny Depp is known to be somewhat of an eccentric but there is nothing in his hands which shows him up to be one. His hand simply shows that Depp is very talented and creative. Sure, there are aspects to his personality (as revealed by his hand) that are not perfectly balanced, but then very few people are truly balanced in this sense.

Reasons for his phenomenal success
There are several signs on Johnny Depp’s hands which tell us why he became so successful. The lines on his palm are not clear from photographs, but it was possible to see that his headline is

The Hand Analysis of Nitin Gadkari, the BJP President

Three qualities are essential in a good politician, assuming average intelligence and capability. One, a genuine love and compassion for people, second, honesty and third, a love for the country. Hardly any Indian politicians whose hands I have analysed have all of these three virtues. It confirms my belief that the wrong kind of people join politics in India.

The Hand Analysis of Hamid Karzai, President of Afghanistan

Hamid Karzai’s hands show that he is a clever and glib talker, and extremely shrewd. A difficult man to upstage. The United States is finding this out now, but even a cursory glance at the President of Afghanistan’s hands reveals that he is as smooth as they come.

There have been some changes in his personality over the years. His right hand (indicating the current state of mind) reveals that he is far less idealistic and religious than he was earlier (changes in the shape of the Jupiter Finger). Today he has

Are Shoaib Malik and Sania Mirza right for each other?

Sania Mirza and Shoaib Malik look good together. Both are young, beautiful, successful, and are sports personalities. Both of them have seen the world and are broad-minded people with similar views. But happiness is not dependent on this. The question is: Are Sania and Shoaib matched temperamentally? A peek at their hands can give us a clue as to whether they are matched.

There is one similarity in both their hands, their Heartlines. From this we can deduce that they are both

Amitabh Bachchan's hand analysis

Most people who lead exceptional lives have special hands and Amitabh
Bachchan is no exception. His personality (as revealed by his hands) shows talent and will, energy and mental strength. If one looks at his hand superficially, it seems balanced but a closer examination reveals that Amitabh is not as perfect as he seems. Like any other human being, he has his weaknesses.

He has a large hand, shortish fingers which are slightly bent, a long Mercury (little) finger, developed Mounts of Moon (Luna) and Jupiter, and fairly clear lines.

Great ambition is evident from his Mount of Jupiter and Jupiter finger and also the burning desire to be

Shane Warne's hands match his reputation!

From what I could discern from the hand of Shane Warne, his hand matches his reputation. His hand is that of a temperamental person. It is not easy to decipher cricketers’ hands as most of their photographs are with gloves on. 

The best part about Warne’s hand is that his hand (thumb, hand shape) shows superior

Mahatma Gandhi's hands tell us that he was a true spiritual leader

Expectedly, the overall shape of Mahatma Gandhi’s hand and fingers reveals his breadth of vision and pragmatism. People with such dispositions are never narrow minded. They are also unselfish, so much so that they tend not to think of their own problems, and tend to dwell on those of the world and of society. It is known that Mahatma Gandhi neglected his domestic life for the sake of India, and the explanation of this is in his hand. It is not that he did not care for his family, he simply thought they were less important.

Mahatma Gandhi also had an issue with self-esteem. This could be another reason for his neglect of family. This is evident from

Vladimir Putin's hands give us a glimpse into his personality

Vladimir Putin, the Prime Minister of Russia who is now back as the President, is a man of action, and a quick thinker. His hands show a personality that is impatient, of a man who wants results, not talk. The only profession he is suited to is a managerial one, where he manages not just people, but events and changes. According to his hands, he was certainly the right man to oversee the massive changes that Russia went through as he took over the reins as the President of Russia in 1999, mainly because of his ability to get things done.

There has been some criticism about his methods, with many believing that he is fascist, and there are fears that he might go back to some of the old ways. Once we interpret his hands we can find out if this criticism is justified.

Not only is Putin a doer, he has a

Mayawati's hands reveal her personality characteristics

Mayawati's hands show her to be a woman who is street-smart but one who sees things from her own point of view, a person who could find it difficult to see the broad picture. Feelings are important to her, and she would tend to make decisions based on her feelings and would react rather than reason. Often, she could neglect to think things through or take into account the consequences. Diplomacy is not her forte.

The hand shows a tendency to react negatively. The shape, length and the position of the Saturn finger on her hand show her to somewhat of a wet blanket and a person who can quickly see the negative side of everything and that
too, intensely. The well developed lower Moon mount confirms this reading. She doubts, has feelings of jealousy and resentment towards others, readily believing the worst of them.

The Jupiter (index) finger third phalange on her hand is well developed and the tip quite conic, the palm is on the narrower side, with developed mounts. The Mercury (little) finger is a little short

Steve Jobs' hands speak to us about his inner self and his success

Businesspeople succeed for different reasons. Steve Jobs's hands remind us of exactly this. In Jobs’ case, his creativity and search for excellence were the major factors that catapulted him into the position in which he is today. His imagination and creativity is evident in the development of the Mount of Moon and is confirmed by his excellent Head Line.

One of the first things that one notices from the overall shape of his hand is that he is

The hand reading of Osho Rajneesh

The hands of Acharya Rajneesh (1931-1990), the man who called himself Bhagwan, and then later Osho, tell us of the weaknesses as well as the strengths of his character. While his hands show a personality with laudable traits, they also reveal a dark side to his disposition. There have been accusations against him, that he was a phoney, and then there are those who swear by him and believe that he was indeed God on earth. The truth lies somewhere in between.

This post will explore what Rajneesh was like in real life.

If one concentrates on the remarkable side of his nature, then what stands out is that he was a thinker. The shape of his hand and fingers, the finger phalanges, as well as his Head Line, tell us that he was not an ordinary thinker but an extraordinarily original one who observed life around him very keenly and found explanations and solutions.

His was a mind which

Michelle Obama's hands match with Barack Obama's

Michelle Obama’s hands show her to be a balanced, refined and intelligent human being. In fact, her hand and finger analysis shows her to be superior not just intellectually but also in terms of sensitivity and sensibility. She does seem well matched to President Barack Obama, who is of a cerebral bent of mind as well. Further down in the post I will write about some personality traits the two have in common.

Michelle Obama’s double headline is intriguing, and while one wishes one could get a better photograph to study it, it is clear from the little one sees that she has more

What P. Chidambaram's hands tell us about him

Chidambaram’s hand should be very good, considering that he is a top-level government minister and presently holds the Home Portfolio. His hand is certainly that of a successful man, but there are certain negative aspects of his character which are clearly evident.

Let us first see the positive traits as revealed by his hand. His headline, shape of the hand and quadrangle show above average intelligence, an intelligence of the kind which shows

The hand reading of Silvio Berlusconi, the Italian Prime Minister

Silvio Berlusconi is an emotional and passionate man and also a very intelligent one. It is because of his sharp brain and shrewdness that he succeeded as a businessman, and later as a politician. But if one has to say which career he is more suited to, business or politics, then politics would be the winner.

The first thing that strikes one from looking at his hand is the development of

Ratan Tata's hand analysis

Ratan Tata, who is presently the chairman of the Tata Group, has always been somewhat of an enigma. Very little is known about Ratan Tata the real person. His hands tell us that while he has some very good qualities, there is something about his personality that would make him a difficult man to live with on a daily basis.

The shape of his hand from palmistry’s point of view is good, as it shows a breadth of vision and intelligence. It shows him to be an energetic and goal-oriented person. The most interesting aspect of his character

The hand analysis of music star Madonna

Madonna's hands tell us that she is a private person, rather secretive, suspicious and difficult to approach. Perhaps that is why there is a mysterious aura about her. One never really knows what is behind that steady smile of hers, what she is really thinking. The way she holds her fingers tell us this and more. The mount of Venus and heart line confirms that she doesn’t reach out to others easily, and although she has a very warm personality, she can be distant at times. She has a good heart but it is reserved.

As a person, she is driven by some sort of nervous

Prime Minister Manmohan Singh's personality characteristics

Dr Manmohan Singh’s hand is that of an intellectual but his hand also shows that he is not a good leader. This is an accusation that is often hurled at him by many. However, his hand shows that he has willpower, thinking prowess and determination. So what is it about him that makes him fall prey to manipulation? Is he really a weak man? His hand can give us an idea as to who Dr Manmohan Singh really is.

He has a broad palm, with shortish fingers which are conic in shape with long first phalanges. He has a strong thumb, with a balance of both the will and logic phalanges. His headline

Pope Benedict XVI's personality as seen from his hands

Pope Benedict XVI is known as a person with strong views, and this aspect of his character leaps out at you from his hands. The colour and texture of the palm, the thumb and its phalanges, the heart line as well as the seeming lack of suppleness of the hands - all point to it. Several signs pointing to the same trait intensify the strength of the reading.

But what lies behind his strong stand on various issues like abortion and homosexuality? What is the Pope really like? Are his views genuine? Or is he playing to the gallery?

Very likely he is genuinely good, at least that is what his hands tell us. And a reformer of sorts. The values most important to him are

Baba Ramdev's hand reading

A personality characteristic evident from Swami Ramdev’s hands is his strong desire to be in the limelight. Fame and renown have always been his driving forces and still are.

Interestingly, there have been significant changes in his personality over the years. This usually means that the person has changed the course of his own destiny and carved out his/her own path. This usually happens either because of circumstances and/or because the person has made a conscious effort to change himself. Baba Ramdev's desire for fame along with slight selfishness was always present in his character, but a facet of his personality that has developed

Rafael Nadal - Hand and Finger Analysis

All great sportsmen are strategists. Some are better than others, and Rafael Nadal’s hands show that he is one of the better ones, even better than Roger Federer. True, he does not plan as much, nor does he go that much into detail, but Nadal’s hands show unusual shrewdness. More importantly, he can think and act quickly. He is flexible, takes instant decisions, and that too almost intuitively.

Rafael or Rafa as he is popularly known, like many successful sportspeople, has an excellent shape to his hand – broad palm and long fingers but not excessively long. His pinky or little finger is relatively very long and a little bent. His other fingers are fairly straight and the Jupiter or index finger is conically tipped and leaning outwards. He had a very good Apollo (ring) finger, excellent Venus and Jupiter mounts and Upper Mars and the Mercury mount are also fairly developed. In addition, he has a long, low-set thumb and dark, curved lines with the head and life joint for quite a bit.

His hand shows that he is not just mentally dexterous, he can be amazingly skilful, crafty, active and nimble and these are the qualities of people with a good

The hand reading of Sri Sri Ravi Shankar

Sri Sri Ravi Shankar (born 1956) doesn’t claim to be a Godman although his official website does call him "His Holiness." His claim to fame is that he is a spiritual guru. What do his hands say? Is he genuine or not? If not for hand analysis it would be a difficult question to answer in an objective manner. Well, even a cursory look at Sri Sri’s hands shows him to be a thinking person and a compassionate human being, which of course does not automatically make him a guru. However, there are other facets to his personality.

The Hand Analysis of Bill Gates

As you all know Bill Gates is not your average Joe. He was not born that way either. He was born gifted. Gifted with a fine brain plus the talent to make money. He didn't squander his inheritance. He developed all his inherent, character traits, and more. Some traits developed in him over the years because of the path he chose. The analysis of his hands reveals to us what Gates is all about.

Almost every sign in his hand tells us of his sense of balance. The shape of his hand tells us that he views things from a broad perspective. The way he holds his fingers and thumb emphasizes this sense of balance and tells us that he does not hold extreme views. His excellent finger of Saturn, which is the balance wheel, tells us about his wisdom and prudence, as well as trustworthiness, strong focus, and dependability. The headline confirms the common sense that he has in plenty. And although he thinks brilliantly and independently,

Shashi Tharoor's hands tell us the kind of politician he is

Shashi Tharoor’s hands show him to be a man who enjoys mental pursuits and that qualifies him to be an intellectual. However, I have not been able to see the lines on his palm clearly and cannot confirm this aspect of his personality. The shape of Tharoor’s hands and fingers do give a fair idea as to what kind of a person he is though.

The secret of his success
Success depends a great deal on personality and Tharoor (currently Minister of State for External Affairs) has a strong personality. His above-average willpower, strong dominating will, ability to command others with a purpose, as well as good reasoning powers, judgment and common sense are all seen on his thumb. In addition to this,

Roger Federer's hand analysis

Roger Federer is an enigmatic personality for many. His hands can give us a clue as to what kind of a person he really is. By nature, he tends to be complex; a person who seems calm and controlled to the world, but is he really like that on the inside? Skilful and talented he surely is but, in reality, he is vulnerable and soft inside.

Roger Federer has a broad palm, with either medium length or slightly long fingers, a slightly high-set, tapering thumb of average length, long first phalanges, average second phalanges, and prominent mounts of Moon, Venus and Lower Mars.

His lines are not quite

Comparison of Shirdi Sai Baba's hands with Sathya Sai Baba's

Reincarnation is implausible but even if it isn't, the hands of the Sathya Sai Baba of Puttaparthi (born 1926) and the hands of the Sai Baba of Shirdi (died in 1918) are completely different. There is no question that one is the reincarnation of the other - they are two diverse personalities. But if Sathya Sai Baba’s hands tell us that he is not like the Sai Baba of Shirdi, what do they tell us about him?

The hand analysis of the Princess of Wales, Lady Diana

Diana, the Princess of Wales, was not an heir to the throne of England, but her hands show that she had some blue blood, if not running in her veins, then certainly in her heart and soul. There are a lot of "facts" about her on the internet, but here through her hand reading, you can find out who she was in her heart. Whether it was poise, sensitivity and grace that she had, or whether it was the love and care and compassion that she felt for people, this woman was a real queen. Her hands show it. She was born an aristocrat and died as one. Her hands also explain why she threw it all away and why her marriage to Prince Charles (now the King) was doomed from the start.

Diana's hands have light lines, and the ridges are fine, and the palm seems soft. She has a low-set thumb, and this is the most important digit in hand reading. She also had a developed Mount of Venus although Mars is not that well-developed. She had many good qualities and one of them was a

Shah Rukh Khan’s hands tell us why and how he became so successful

Shah Rukh Khan reached the top in the Indian film industry, but he is not known as a phenomenal actor or great looker. Neither is he from a "filmi" background, and one wonders how exactly he made it in Bollywood. His hands give us a clue to the secret of his success. A mix of the most useful and essential qualities (for success) got SRK to where he is.

The most significant signs on this hand are the long, strong thumb, a prominent mount of Lower Mars and Venus, a large broad, slightly fleshy palm, medium length of fingers and well-etched lines, although not long ones. The mounts of Mercury and Moon are also well developed. The lifeline is broken but the fateline compensates for it, repairing this break. There is a good balance of

The hand analysis of Prince Charles (now King)

King Charles is the kind of person who likes to get things done and likes to see things through to the end. His hand belongs to a person who can get impatient with delay. He is a doer. Active and energetic. All this is evident from even a quick glance at his hand. His hand is fairly easy to read as some of the signs are obvious. Thick fingers, slightly on the shorter side, hand too on the shorter side, and also deep pink in colour, with strong mounts.

But what does this kind of hand show about the Prince as a man? What is he like from the inside? Well, it's not all good.
