As a child palmistry used to look like a fraud baba's job. U know, people sitting on the footpaths.Slowly as a teenager, it was fun in the class rooms. Someone used to say, your life partner's first alphabet appears on your thumb or something. All that kiddish crap and ya,u join your hands and make the moon, another kiddish thing many people may have done in their teenage years.
Didi bought this book, Guide to the hand, from an exhibition.Cheiro's books on palmistry are perhaps the best you will ever find, so I write about it, even though I learned nothing from the book, except that palmistry is a very advanced form science, one has to work hard to learn it and with a high level of concentration.
Genre - Palmistry
Age factor - 16 and above
On the outside, it looks like a booklet, just 126 pages slim book.But inside is a wealth of knowledge that is unimaginable.The book is divided into 2 parts,cheirognomy, and cheiromancy.
Most fascinating thing I found in this book was that palmistry isn't just about those lines on the palm, but nails, thumbs, knuckles are studied too.Study it well, and many mysteries can be solved about your friends and family.But read it with ample of time at hand, as it requires clarity of mind and high concentration.Good one for beginners, for some basic knowledge.
Just 50 rupees this book costs, its a bonanza for you, but don't go about gifting it.Only where your friend may be interested in these things you should.This book isn't for anyone and everyone.You will find much better options than thisIfeel.But if it is a token gift then sure,go ahead.
A thought worth sharing
