To, All Naadi Lovers Sub: Dictionary for Words From Naadi Palm Leaf Predictions Introduction As the Naadi

palm leaf predictions are getting popular day by day, the Naadi centres are spreading all over India and abroad. New centres are mushrooming very fast. However there are no proper interpreters available. Persons get dejected if proper interpretation is not provided for the most accurate words used by the Maharshees in their Tamil writings. On many occasions one gets feeling that the essence of the predictions is missing. The Naadi centre owners and interpreters are also aware of limitations of their knowledge and experience. In absence of exact and appropriate words they keep repeating the few words they are aware of due to their limited exposure to language. Hindi translation is generally done by the person who happened to reside in Hindi speaking areas due to employment needs. They relay on the words they hear or read for their routine jobs. At present there are no arrangements for proper training to the interpreters. The Naadi centres in Vaideeshwaran Koil should take lead to overcome the situation by starting courses in theirs centres by the proper English trained persons.
