It\'s very nice of you to respond back immediately. You\'ve mentioned that you are from Srilanka. Are you a Srilankan Tamilian or a Sinhalese? The reason for asking is, you have mentioned that they were from South India and their accent was strange. Actually they\'ll speak normal Tamil only, but the Tamil in the Ola is a very ancient one and hence it\'ll be very tough to understand. As you said, they all used to apply vibuthi on their foreheads. All the Naadi readers are from a community called \"Valluvars\".
Regarding Naadi Astrology, some ancient Tamil Siddhars (Sages) like Sri Agasthiyar, Sri Sugar and Sri Bogar, etc, had given predictions for almost all the people who were / are / will be taking births in this world. It\'s very accurate and they can say about your past, present and future lives. They can say about your marriage, spouse\'s names and children\'s names too.
These were maintained, copied and recopied by few Astrologers\' families. But since these Naadis were very ancient (minimum 2500 to 3000 years old), most of the naadis were lost and only few are left with now. But these guys have become commercialized and they don\'t reveal these truth. Hence even if they don\'t have real leaves, these guys are preparing them and predicting to the people roughly based on their horoscopes. Hence many people are getting wrong predictions. But who are lucky enough will get their original leaves will get their predictions damn right.
I have got many contacts with these Naadi Astrologers and know them personally too. The original Naadi Astrologer shouldn\'t even ask you whether your name starts with these letters are not. After getting our thumb print, they should tell everything by themselves. If some one is asking these things, we should start doubting their genuinity.
If you\'ve got everything right in your predictions, you may be one of those lucky persons whose original Naadi still exists.
