I Started Palm Reading as a Hobby
[Updated :: 2011-03-06 15:32:28 Hours]
People are born to the world with some skills. Majority use those skills for the benefit of the world, serving the mankind and the nature.

CIMIC team this week met a senior Jaffna citizen who has learnt an interesting science, astrology. Mr. Kanthaiya Thanabalasingham started learning the art of reading others’ future at his young age. Born in 1937 at Alavai North, a charming village close to Point Pedro (PPD), little Thanabalasingham received his primary education at famous Hartley College in PPD and entered St. John’s College, Jaffna where he completed his Senior School Certificate (SSC) examination.

In 1962, he joined Sri Lanka Insurance Corporation Jaffna branch as an Insurance Organizer which blessed him with opportunity to travel in many parts of the peninsula and meet people. While enjoying his new career, young Thanabalasingham took an interest in learning the science of palm reading.

“I first started learning palm reading as a hobby. The art of telling others’ future was so fascinating that I continued learning it further.”

In 2010 he retired from Sri Lanka Insurance Corporation to engage in palm and horoscope reading fulltime. Very conversant in both Tamil and English languages, Mr. Thanabalasingham repents for not getting a chance to work other parts of the country.

According to him, before 10.00 a.m. is the best time for anyone to get his or her palm read.

“One day in 1977 I happened to meet Mr. J.R. Jayawardane at Parliamentary premises. I told him that he would become the President of the country,” he remembered the past.

“Brig. Larry Wijeratne was a good friend of mine. I warned him to be careful because I saw he was not safe,” he lamented.

He is a father of four daughters and four sons. Mr. Thanabalasingham has read palms of many foreigners when he visited Switzerland to see one of his daughters.

Mr. Thanabalasingham still remembers his beloved wife Mrs. Parameshwari Thanabalasingham, who passed away last year, with much love and affection.

Wishing him good luck and long life to serve more and more people, we left his beautiful house in the evening. You can contact this charming person through 021 2264196.
