Pati rekha is highly dented. No. 4 the line which has issued from the first part of the Malika line has cut the line 7 at the end. The whole part of Pati rekha is full of Kesara rekhas. Her love flows mostly towards outsiders and derives much help from them. The existence of Kesara rekhas point to her possessing lands and cash.
Figure 124 : Here, from F to the middle of the thumb the line is much dented; and the first part of the Malika line IJ exhibits the sign of scissors and these lines are very thick. Hence, the native has suffered hardships in boyhood; the line F shows help from accessory lines, only from the second half. Hence, the native may hope for some good results from 41 years. While 44, he begets a female issue. Thereafter will be his advance in happiness and peace.
Over the line FE there is a branching line. The line L has cut the nucleus round the conch. This suggests slowness in getting offspring. Besides, the line ABC betrays the serpent form fully. This means that Rahu is located in Mithuna, and the native will be subject to bitter criticism of relations and that the family will have limited progeny. From the side of D a dented and island shaped line has cut the wheat line. This implies that the person will have only one female progeny and that the native and his wife will both suffer from phlegm and rheumatic troubles. The Madhura rekha G is dull and hence the person has little education.
Figure 125 : The native is even less fortunate than the one described above. The line EF is dim and broken. Above this line we notice V shaped denting lines (resembling the serpent tongue) while ? and D lines have crossed the conch sign above and below respectively. The Rati rekha G is forked and lustreless. This means that the wife suffers from womb disorders and from A to B, the Mars (Ripu line) line has cut the wheat line and so the native will be weak and lacking in vitality. Hence, he will be issueless and will lead a toilsome existence.
The F subsidiary white line is open mouthed in the middle. Even this points to his lack of progeny, hard and diseased life. In the middle of FG we see the scissors sign on the Rati rekha and this points to the native's early self-indulgent life resulting in loss of vitality.
Figure 123 : The line AB is broken over this line we notice the V sign. Above A near the arrow mark, there is a little long and stout line (The same kind of line, we notice near 7 in Fig. 124.) This means that
the native will have only one female issue.
The enemy line which has proceeded from D to A indicates lack of fertile sperms in vitality. Besides the Rati rekha E is very long and in the beginning dented suggesting the sparseness of the progeny. From line BA to the Malika line we see long and square Thara Kesara rekhas in plenty and therefore, it may well be asserted that this native is owner of .vast lands, houses, cash and conveyances. But at ? the wheat line is branched in two implying that after him, the entire wealth will pass on to others.
After the thumb (the wheel portion) we find much white shade and the whirl is dented and therefore, there will be no continuation of the family line.
(N.B. In the part of the book describing details of progeny so far, it must be remembered that the persons to whom the thumb impressions have reference are between 60 and 65 years and their wives reached freedom from menstruation 5 to 13 years ago.)
Figure 36: Here EF Malika (Oval) is like a flower petal and therefore, numerous accessory lines on venus position. This means that the lady is born in a rich family. The pati rekha DC is wheat shaped as it proceeds towards ? and hence she marries a rich educated and virtuous person. The Madhura, Ma- dara and Mana rekhas and subsidiary lines on line CD are nice and bring very good yoga to the native. Hence, she has several brothers and sisters; a number of offsprings, wealth and commands all worldly comforts and luxuries.
L.T. 103 Figure: The line A has proceeded to the nucleus of the conch whirl, where at the end of this line there is a round point and below it a cross line and again on the point (on line A) we see two tiny

lines. This militates against family happiness. The husband will be wicked, will abandon her and travel to a far olf place. He will associate himself with some other woman there and be happy.
The wheat line issuing from ? proceeds some distance with accessory lines and as it approaches ? accessories disappear and at last we notice only a coarse and indistinct line. Hence during youth laborious life is indicated together with the bitter censure of society and consequent humiliation.
Figure 82 : The line D passes horizontally in between 2 whirls. At commencement it is dull (in the beginning) it has the form of a tail and at end the form of the head is visible); the second half is thick and somewhat island shaped. The ? line aspects the head part of the nucleus of a whirl. And line E aspects line C. This shows eternal variance and verbal war between the husband and wife, lack of peace in the family economy, while line ? portends severe stomach disorder for the wife.
The lines A and ? are far apart but full. This points to lack of family harmony, a life of continuous struggle till the end.
104 : The AB wheat line is not clear-cut. This means some ordinary occupation for the native. Over this line we notice the line of the serpent's tongue and hence, the native will have no issues.
Figure 84 : Here, the Rati rekha F is very much dented. At commencement it is rough; in the second half a subsidiary line has cut it (See the arrow mark); the line is feeble arrd disappears at the upper part. This means that the native will contract association with some women; then he marries; the wife remains with him for 3 years and then deserts him. Then, he
marries a second wife; even she abandons him. Finally, the native loses mental tranquillity. The thumb has no beads, garland or Kesara rekhas. Then person lives by some ordinary profession.
Figure 91 : In this thumb, the line which starts from ? proceeds some length and is broken : but the initial portion is pretty. This shows the native is born in a rich house. The conch sign indicates the Vrish- abha Lagna of the native. The CD line though dented in the beginning proceeds straight correctly. This implies that the native is veiy strict person, and always firm and resolute in successfully completing any work undertaken. He possesses the traits of a true devotee, veneration for elders and gurus and gains fame.
The line ? after starting is cut. But, at the point where it is cut, the line (Kalpavriksha) issuing from D line has spread its branches
