Indians are quite interested in future reading, especially women and illiterate persons. They go to fly-by-night astrologers or self-styled future-tellers, who use parrots to identify the future for some quick money. This vanishing profession still exists in rural Telangana areas.
Everyone is interested in knowing, what is stored for future, they tend to worry more, when there is any problem or what they intend to pursue is delayed for longer period of time. Then arises doubt, as to what is wrong with my luck and future.
To dispel such doubts, people tend to consult astrologers, horoscopes or palmistry architects, they are mostly consulted to dispel such doubts. But many tend to believe by visiting a Telangana’s village, Lakshmipur, they will find a solution to their problem, as they have high belief in soothsaying. This practice is followed in these village for many years.
More than 200 residents of Budiga Jangala Colony in Laksmipur village of kothapally mandal in Karimnagar district practice soothsaying. For two centuries, the village people have been practicing soothsaying profession.
