Who’s Cheiro, the palmist who predicted his own death?

Cheiro Radhe Shyam

“I would not be surprised if he did not give up everything, including his right to be crowned, for the woman he loved.” The sentence is taken from the personal diary of William John Warner aka Cheiro who is also known as the Einstein of Palmistry.

But interestingly, the above prediction about the Prince of Wales is not the only correct prediction Cheiro made in his life. In fact, correct predictions are only what he made in his entire life, including the one where he said – “one day, Jews would return to Palestine, and the country would again be called Israel.” 

On March 11, as we ready ourselves to witness the portrayal of Cheiro in the upcoming movie Radhe Shyam, it is logical to learn about the great personality who learned palmistry in India and predicted the future of some of the most powerful personalities in the world.

Cheiro’s visit to India to learn astrology

Cheiro was the most reputed palmist of his time. As mentioned in his memoirs, he acquired his expertise in India and used it to start a career as a palmist in London. 

As a teenager, he travelled to Bombay, where he met his Guru, an Indian Chitpavan Brahmin, who took him to his village in the valley of the Konkan region of Maharashtra. Later Cheiro was permitted by Brahmans to study an ancient book on palmistry. He studied the book thoroughly for two years, and it is believed that after the completion of his study, he was so adept that he could predict anyone’s future and also world events that would happen one day. 

A speciality of Cheiro was that he would only work for famous personalities such as politicians or celebs. In his career, he read palms of celebrities like Mark Twain, W. T. Stead, Sarah Bernhardt, Mata Hari, Oscar Wilde, Grover Cleveland and 24th President of the United States, Thomas Edison, the Prince of Wales, General Kitchener, William Ewart Gladstone, and Joseph Chamberlain.
