  Palms up lines of destiny  
  BY SEWA BHATTARAI  
 
What one astrologer may define as a good indicator may be defined as bad by another.

Palmistry, or the science of predicting a person’s nature, behavior, past and future through the lines of their hand, is an ancient science much revered throughout the ages. But of late, the authenticity of the science is frequently called into question by many who believe astrology is just mumbo-jumbo.

Punya Prasad Adhikari, 77, who holds a doctorate in Jyotish Shastra (astrology), believes it is a science with its own precise rules and measurements. He uses a microscope to look at the finer lines on a hand, and claims to know all the details about a person, down to the score they get in examinations.
“One day, a foreign diplomat came to see me,” said Adhikari. “I correctly told him the color of his car, approximated its number, and even told him what diseases his family members had.” Adhikari believes indicators of the entire body can be found in the hands.
