The Lal Kitab is a great work of our times written by one who happened to live amongst us. It is a treatise on astropalmistry with astrological remedies. In other works on palmistry we find names of lines, mounts and marks etc after the names of planets and there ends their astrology. Lal Kitab after naming the mounts etc after the names of planets goes much further. Palmistry is explained in astrological terms. This work would have attained the status of a great classic but for its script which is Persian and which finds very few students today.
