That Dr. Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan was a great
man is all too evident from his hand which is in fact awe-inspiring. The long
headline plunging into the Moon Mount is often found on the hands of
intellectuals and well known authors and poets. A headline like that can show a
high level of intelligence, imagination and brilliance (as in the case of the
Dr. Radhakrishnan) but one has to read this sign with caution. The quality and
strength of the headline as well as its overall balance
is of critical importance and so is the hand on which this type of headline is found. Brilliance is brilliance only if it exists within the right personality framework and is used to achieve something positive. Brilliance is genius when it is of the cerebral variety and does not restrict itself to a skill, either mental or physical.
For one thing, the thumb shows extraordinary will, and the strong heartline, position of the headline and the shape of the fingers show an ethical and humane mindset which will enable the owner to use his qualities for productive work and the betterment of humankind.
Moon adds to the imagination shown by the headline but the strong Mars is
equally important as it shows not just persistence in the face of obstacles,
but also tremendous mental strength and resistance, a quality absolutely
essential with such a strong combination of Moon and the long sloping Headline.
Without the Mars qualities and without the strong thumb, the headline and Moon
combination can be a danger to the balance of the personality. The fork on the
headline is another critical feature of his hand as it lifts the headline from
its purely imaginary position to the real world. If it wasn’t for this sign it
is unlikely that Dr. Radhakrishnan would have had the qualities of a President,
although he might still have had the brilliance of an author.
