Everybody says, “I don’t like to be cheated. I hate being deceived.” But nobody has ever escaped it. Very much like this Byculla-based person whom I met on Thursday. His story in brief: Two years ago, his mother rented out her shop and flat. After a few months, the tenant refused to pay the rent and cooked up stories about his poor financial condition. The old lady believed him and let him continue for some more time. When she confronted him again a few months later, he paid a part of the dues. Last month, she thought of handling this crook firmly and asked him to vacate the place. He refused and started bragging about his “influential contacts”. But when she mounted the pressure, he presented before them a bill of Rs 2 lakh, which he had “spent on the face-lifting of the shop”. He got the amount and moved out, threatening them with consequences. Her son brought the handwriting of the tenant and wanted me to tell him how seriously he should take his threat.
His handwriting showed he was dishonest. There are many strokes that reflect a person’s capability to be fraudulent. He had many of them. First, he had a tendency to keeping ulterior motives while talking, shown by the circle at the beginning of C (pic A).
I also saw a similar circle inside lower case A (pic B), which showed that the person had a forked tongue. It means he says things he does not mean. Also, he frequently messed up his numbers (pic C), which shows he did not want people to see his real motives in financial dealings. He had a tendency to hold on to things and not let go of them (the shop and tenement) easily, which was shown by the hooks in horizontal stroke (‘5’ in pic D).
Looking at other parts of the handwriting, I suggested him to be careful because this guy, although not impulsive, was a little out of way, shown by the abrupt insertion of capital letters in the middle of a word (pic E). But more than that, I told him that the only way to handle the crook was to be firm with him.
LOVE OTHERS’ SUCCESS
This week I am analysing the handwriting (pic F) of Sanyam, an IIT-JEE aspirant. Although he has failed once in his attempt to clear the exam, he is going to give it another shot. Sanyam, keep in mind that you have to learn from others’ success, which you are not able to because of your jealously. You have to be very careful with this dangerous emotion. Second, I see that you are too much of an outgoing person and have difficulty concentrating. You must shut out distractions, including preoccupation with sexual imagination, and focus on studies.
POP A PEN KILLER
Sanyam, write “I will work hard to do it well” on ruled paper for 30 days, leaving a margin of one inch on the left. Make sure your O’s is clean (pic G): there should be nothing dangling inside (as seen in your handwriting in pic F). All the best!
