Graphology - an introduction

Hi friends,

As promised, I start off with Graphology. Let me tell you, I came across this fascinating science first while reading a story where the protagonist was a graphologist.
Now, what is graphology? As far as I understand, it is the science of inferring human behaviour, psyche and attitude by analysing handwriting !
And it is very interesting. Once I heard about a guy who used to imitate the handwriting of famous people, be it Abraham Lincoin, Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi and many more. And, you won't believe, there came a time, when he actually started suffering from identity crisis ! That was because each of these great people had a different persona and whenever he used to imitate one's handwriting, his/her's signature traits used to appear in his behavior/psyche. I am not sure, whether he could be cured, but the point of raising this was to highlight the importance of handwriting for every individual.
And one very important thing, in India, we tend to give much importance to the look and feel of handwriting without knowing any of the traits. It is presumed that if the handwriting is clear, alphabets crispy, all letters of the same size and shape, almost like being a printed block, then its great ! Let me tell you, this notion is absolutely rubbish ! Typically, people possessing picture perfect handwriting (as if printed in Arial font) are the most likely to be very average in life ! because, slants, sizes, style, pressure applied while writing all have a subtle role to play in moulding an individuals attitude and psyche. Rather I would say, they are interdependent.

Now, a few basic handwriting traits that tells us about an individual:
Here they go:
1. Slanting towards right:
I have seen many in my life with this trait. Typically, these individuals are more expressive and emotional.
2. Slanting towards left:
There are quite a few with this trait as well. These people are exactly opposite in nature to those above. They are more introvert, less expressive andfar less emotional.
3. Straight up and down:
These people are more rational and logical. They combine the traits of the above two categories of people. These people can stay cool and behave rationally even in tight circumstances. This is possibly the best trait to have as far as slant is concerned.
4. Small size handwriting:
These people have the capability of outstanding focus and concentration. This is typicall referred to as less social handwriting.
5. Large size handwriting:
These are the ones who are more outgoing, much more social. They like more fun at the party !
6. Y-Loops:
The Y-loops can tell a lot. Take a look below:

So, its time you start checking your handwriting. It can reveal a lot ! Lot more coming up in my next posting. Until then, chao !

Upcoming topics !

Hey friends,

I thought about sharing few things which have always fascinated me:

Body language
Traces of life in the universe (outside our very own earth)

In the next few postings I would try and cover these topics. Watch out ! I would share whaatever limited knowledge I have and what do experts and veterans in these fields have to say ! Also, how much science or prejudice is involved in each of these. I am sure many of you must have had experiences/knowledge in one or more of these. I would request you to share your thoughts. Be assured that it would make for an excellent reading !
I would have started today itself, but there are time constraints...
So, friends, keep visiting my blog for updates!

Time for some humour

Game over

A young boy enters a barber shop and the barber whispers to his Customer, "This is the dumbest kid in the world. Watch while I prove it to you."
The barber puts a five rupee coin in one hand and two one rupee coins(1+1=2) in the other, then calls the boy over and asks, "Which do you want, son?"

The boy takes the two one rupee coins and leaves. "What did I tell you?" said the barber. "That kid never learns!"

Later, when the customer leaves, he sees the same young boy coming out of the ice cream store. "Hey, son! May I ask you a question? Why did you take two one rupee coins instead of five rupee coin?"

The boy licked his cone and replied, "Because THE DAY I TAKE THE FIVE RUPEE COIN, THE GAME IS OVER"

Spelling mistake

What a single spelling mistake can do?
Husband went to GOA on tour and sent an SMS to his wife:


Wake up son

One Early morning a mother went to her sleeping son
and woke him up.
MOM : "Wake up, son. It's time to go to school."
SON : "But why, Mama? I don't want to go to school."
MOM : "Give me two reasons why you don't want to go to
SON : "One, all the children hate me. Two, all the
teachers hate me."
MOM : "Oh! that's not a reason. Come on, you have to
go to school."
SON : "Give me two good reasons WHY I *should* go to
One, you are FIFTY-TWO years old and should understand your responsibilities.
Two, you are the PRINCIPAL of the school.

Phone scandal

A woman wanted to reach her husband on his mobile phone but discovered that
she was out of credit, She instructed her son to use his own phone to pass
across an urgent message to his daddy who was on site.

After junior had called, he got back to mummy to inform her that there was
a lady that picked up daddy's phone the three times he tried reaching dad
on the mobile.


She waited impatiently for her husband to return from work and upon seeing
him in the driveway, she rushed out and gave him a tight slap, and she
slapped him again, for good measure.

People from the neighborhood rushed around to find out what the cause of
the commotion was.

The woman asked junior to tell everybody what the lady said to him when he

Junior said

"The subscriber you have dialed is not available at present. Please Try
Again Later"...

Bring on the cat!

A mouse chanced on a pool of whiskey that was the result of a raid by
prohibition-enforcement agents. The mouse had had no previous acquaintance with liquor, but now, being thirsty, it took a sip of the strange fluid, and then retired into its hole to think. After some thought, it returned to the pool, and took a second sip of the whiskey. It then withdrew again to its hole, and thought. Presently, it issued and drew near the pool for the third time. Now, it took a big drink. Nor did it retreat to its hole.

Instead, it climbed on a soap box, stood on its hind legs, bristled its whiskers, and squeaked:

"Now, bring on your cat!"

Hymns of a nocturnal bird


I see outside from my balcony... a beautiful piece of silver dish playing hide and seek among the dark clouds... inviting me, saying, "Will you come and play with me?"
I say, "Why not? But you are so far away from me. Even if I wish to, shall I ever reach you?" The beauty smiles but remains mum... I expected some word from you at least, but you did not care to respond............

There's not a wink of sleep in my eyes... wide as ever... Life seems so peaceful... pin drop silence prevalent everywhere... even the roadside dogs are fast asleep, tired of their quarrels and fights... seeking rest, somewhere down the end of the highway...

Thinking of what to jot down... scribble in the unorganized thoughts... but, alas... they are so fragmented, it is difficult to piece them together... Strings are broken... I tried mending them, but to no avail... I try seeking solace in whatever little I do, but do not get the enthusiasm that I have forever been so proud of !

I hear that the birds have started to chirp... the mother is waking up her small cute children... saying, "Its time to get up.. o little ones. Its time that we rise... the whole city would rise after us... but its time for us, dear. Wake up..."

Now I remember. I need to sleep(at least try to), need to put all thoughts to rest, at least temporarily, need some rest... coz... am very tired.............
