Omens foreshadow events that are bound to occur. This is widely believed by people across the world. The ancients considered them as signs or signals from God. The events they portend can be auspicious or inauspicious in nature. Hindus believe that omens can portend future happenings. In fact, there is an entire science that devotes itself to the study of omens. The word for omen in Sanskrit is “shakunam,” and the science pertaining to omens is called Shakuna Shastra.
There is an interesting story about a lizard falling on the head of an incumbent Chief Minister when he was contesting elections for a third term of office in Odisha. The Chief Minister in question was Biju Patnaik. Just before the elections in 2009, on May 16, he had a lizard falling on his head when he opened the doors of his drawing room to see off another political leader who had paid him a visit. This omen, according to astrologers, suggested that he would return to power for another successful third term. His party members were overjoyed at this.
The falling of lizards on the body parts of an individual can mean good or evil, depending on where it comes into contact. The study of the falling of lizards as omens is called Gauli Shastra. According to this Shastra, every movement of a lizard holds significance and there are not less than 65 places where the lizard will fall on the human body that can be taken as good and bad omens. It also claims that a lizard falling on the head is not a good omen but a bad one, as it indicates disputes or quarrels. If the lizard falls on the center of the head, it spells disease.
