Palm-reading, otherwise known as palmistry or chiromancy, is practiced all over the world, with roots in Indian astrology and gypsy fortune-telling. The objective is to evaluate a person’s character or future by studying the palm of their hand. Whether you’re an aspiring palm reader or you’re just looking for a fun way to pass the time and impress your friends, here’s how to gain insight just by holding someone’s hand.


  1. Choose a hand. Traditionally, a woman’s left hand and a man’s right hand should be read, but some schools of palmistry hold that anyone’s non-dominant hand sheds light on a person’s natural persona while the dominant hand indicates one’s choices in terms of how they’ve developed their personality and talents.
  2. Identify and the four major lines. (1) The heart line. (2) The head line. (3) The life line. (4) The fate line.
  3. Interpret the heart line. This line can be read in either direction (from the pinkie finger to the index finger or vice versa) depending on the tradition being followed. It’s believed to indicate emotional stability, romantic perspectives, depression, and cardiac health.
    • begins below the index finger – content with love life
    • begins below the finger – selfish when it comes to love
    • begins in the middle – falls in love easily.
    • straight and short – a high sex drive, less interest in romance
    • touches life line – heart broken easily
    • long and curvy – freely expresses emotions and feelings
    • straight and parallel to the head line – good handle on emotions
    • wavy – many relationships and lovers, absence of serious relationships
    • circle on the line – depression
    • broken line – emotional trauma
    • smaller lines crossing through heart line – emotional trauma


Got this information from one my friends and thought of sharing with you people.

Suppose you have a number stored in your Nokia cell phone with the Name of the number holder. Have you noticed that, if you dial the number with first three digits changed, same Name appears? Same is the case when you receive a call from a number whose last seven digits are the same as this number.

For example, take a number 98450 98450 for instance. I guess, its stored as “Airtel” in your cell. When you dial a number XXX50 98450, it will display “Calling Airtel”. When you receive a call from a number XXX50 98450 it will display “Airtel Calling”.

I don’t know whether you call it a bug or limitation, but it does exist in Nokia handsets. I tried with SonyEricson cell phones also, but they turned out to be smarter than Nokia.
