Hammering the quacks

One of the more depressing things about living and working in London\’s less prosperous neighbourhoods is the sheer number of spiritual entrepreneurs (from every imaginable established religion, and then some) seeking to make a fast buck out of people with genuine hardship in their lives.

Today\’s leaflet, from Pandith Lakkshman Sastri, who operates out of the hallowed portals of Tooting Supermarket (66 Tooting High Street), offers palm- and face-reading to help with everything that life can throw at you, from the commonplace to the incomprehensible: \’Business, Money, Family problems, Children\’s problems Husband and Wife relation, Education, Love, Job, Marriage, Divorce, Sickness, Promotion, choice of stones, abroad etc.\’

At the bottom of the flyer, the small print reads: \’All matters will be kept confidently.\’ Which I will certainly bear in mind, next time stone-choosing becomes an issue.
