Why the rate of Pakistani women visiting Palmists is on the rise?

Philosophy, Palmistry and Pakistani Women

Collectivism

Palmistry also serves collectivism sometimes. This is primarily due to the modernity associated with most South Asian countries in the 21st century. For example, collectivism is the preference of a group over the individual. Here, we will not discuss individualism versus collectivism, rather, we will focus on the mixed priorities of Pakistani people, with an emphasis on the female gender.

Palmistry and Pakistani Women

Pakistani women are still in between individualism and collectivism. With movements such as feminism and liberalism become mainstream in Pakistan in the 21st century, the likelihood of women visiting palmists will also increase. This also forms the basis of the priorities of Pakistanis versus the rest of the world. Again, this is not being written to demoralize family values, as I myself have been raised in a nuclear family system. This is being written owing to my experience of operating a palmistry stall years ago, and that most of the people who came there were of Pakistani nationality.

Women did not know what to ask whereas men straightforward asked about the date of their marriage. This also showcases the confusion in the female gender, though by looking at some palms, the only cause of confusion for women was that they weren't as confident as the men. Though, when you begin the study of palms, you realize that the world has changed from so long ago. Back then it was easier to categorize women in accordance with palmistry. You could categorize the women from South Asia as housewives, and most of the Western women as free-thinkers and liberals, and thus the latter would be seen as more independent. This data is wrong in this way: South Asian women put as much effort in raising their households as Western women do in their career.

East versus West

In fact, if you visit the Western world, they are surprised at the longevity of the Eastern world's marriages. Why? Because the East has been raised on collectivism and the West has been raised on individualism. This furthers another hypothesis of mine, which is of course, irrelevant now as we have not reached the chapters directly linked to palmistry. But all these will be elaborated later on owing to palmistry's crucial link with philosophy.

The Philosophy of Palmistry is Based on Want not Need

My hypothesis is that we all want what we don't have. I have removed the word need as different people want things unique to themselves. A farmer will have more emphasis on the weather than a writer penning a manuscript back at home. I don't even wish to use the word need here as the basic needs are more suited to the discussion of economics than philosophy and/or palmistry.

Imagine a handsome businessman comes to you at your palmistry stall. Well-dressed, expensive suit, etc. That will give you superficial information about the person. Yet the palm will reveal innate desires, wants, personality, etc. And if he has looks, money, a sports car, etc., he would still want more. This is not due to greed, pride, or the other seven deadly sins. But this is because that person wants something that he has decided to visit the stall.

There will always be a lack of something in the palm. That same businessman with money and respect would still want love. It's not that the attainment of true love is not in his palm, instead, it's that his new-found want altered his mindset to focus on the procuring of finance, and suppose, his lines from an early age showcased a strong want for love, but then circumstance changed his perspective. This could be from heartbreak, depression, loss of money, etc. Telling him what exactly was the cause of the change of a want a love to a want of money shouldn't be your priority. But his persistence of seeking love when he gained everything else has lead him to you.

Also, this also proves that the mounts (regions of the palm) don't change. I will say that from the age of twelve, that is the point where the mounts are fully developed, and a reading is permissible. I say fully developed in the case that they can be read correctly. Mounts are always present, just like the hands, since birth. William Benham's persistence on the study of mounts (check the Amazon Affiliate link at the start of this article) did prove one thing that I myself have noticed is that the mounts never change but the rest of the palm surely does. Palmistry is most probably the epitome of nurture over nature.
