There have been innumerable requests to me for writing a book on Palmistry. This is not the area of my research. I have therefore tried to write a book that gives the basics of this science.

Palmistry has been there from the early ages and we find literature where Sanskrit language has been used in explaining issues of this science in the early Vedic ages.

In this book I have tried to explain the uniqueness of each hand and as to how it helps in deciphering characteristics.

In the science of hand reading importance is given to the shape, size, lines and the marks on hand. These have been dealt in details through various chapters in the book.

Palmistry is in no way related to the science of Occultism but can be divided into two parts viz the art of reading character from the shape of hands/fingers and the science of reading he actions and habits. Also it gives an insight of the future if one is able to correlate the shape of the hand with the lines marked thereon.

I have in the various chapters tried to explain various factors like the size, shape, texture, lines and marks that help in deciphering character and the actions that a person is prone towards.

This is a basic book on Palmistry which will be useful reading to all I am sure. One could develop on these basics for a greater understanding of the subject.
