A study on all aspects of thumb with respect to Palmistry
Author(s): Madhusudhan V Prabhu and Dr. Tia Bansal
Abstract: Thumb as a special aspect in palmistry. Each person’s character and predictions can be determined to a large extent by thumb. In south India there are several people who do this kind of reading, and this is commonly known as “Nadi”. It is understood that the lines in our palm determine our fate, future, and fortune; but, as a matter of fact, it’s our thumb that reveals our whole identity to a palmist. Scientifically speaking, the thumb is closely associated with brain’s development, though in palmistry, the thumb has been closely linked with an individual’s willpower. The thumb is a petite body part that takes up massive space in the cerebral cortex of our brains. Our minds grow because our thumbs counter our four fingers. It is believed that Thumbs stand for our most precious human resources: strength of will, ability to judge and capability to love. Like the other four fingers, a thumb also has two joints that form three portions identified as phalanges. The top phalanx of the thumb symbolizes determination. The second or mid-portion symbolizes reasoning ability. If the logic phalanx is shorter than the determination phalanx, the person acts without thinking. If logic is longer, they’re good at planning but poor at executing. The third or last part of the thumb symbolizes our aptitude for love and our capability to maintain relationships.
