Palmist Vijay Patwardhan, believes that palmistry is a precise logical science, that helps people decide what choices to make in life
Staring intendedly at the lines across the palm, palmist Vijay Patwardhan, takes a deep pensive look before pronouncing his verdict at a sombre looking individual regarding his life patterns for the future. "Palmistry has the ability to predict a person's life patterns for the future and thereby enable a person th make certain choices that would be beneficial," he says, as he sits down to talk more about his tryst with Chiromancy and about his book, 'Vedh Adnyatacha' written on the same subject.
"There is no science that is all truth," he says, adding, "Take Sociology for instance, its not totally accurate is it? Palmistry on the other hand doesn't predict the future, but on the basis of the characteristics of an individual it helps guide the person to make better informed decisions that will help them become successful in life." Having read palms for over 35 years now, Patwardhan says that he has thoroughly enjoyed reading palms of celebrities. "There is a lot of uncertainty in their profession, which makes it interesting to help them make decisions for the future," he says.
Narrating one such incident about the late Raj Kapoor, he says, " I met Raj saab, when he was shooting at the Pune University for Bobby. While his art directors were setting up the set, he was sitting quietly on a bench alone. I went up to him and requested him asking if i could secure an appointment to come and read his palm, to which he promptly showed me his hand and said 'Read it now, I have time'. I told him that post Kal Aaj aur Kal, and Mera Naam Joker, which had both flopped at the BO, Bobby would take him back to the top where he would stay till the very end. And that happened." He also predicted that a personal tragedy would strike Raj Kapoor soon, which also happened. Kapoor lost both his parents a month later within a span of 15 days.
