 History:

  Since their push into Persia, Gypsies/Roma has been simultaneously linked with fortunetelling.  From the Eastern, holistic and magical context to their Indian origins, Gypsies or Romas, are prized for their remarkable psychic abilities and the gift to attract good fortune or destroy a life with a curse. All are born with such gifts, but what makes their powers so innate is their relationship with nature. Their bond with the spirits of the outdoors allows their gifts to evolve naturally. Gypsies/Roma believe that within their own there are certain ones who posses’ great power through the ability to perform magic with their special range of knowledge. Such people known in the Gaje, or white man’s world, are usually called witches, warlocks or wizards but within the Roma/Gypsy society they are known as chovihanis. Surprisingly, the Roma/Gypsy usually does not consult a chovihani or anyone else for past, present or future knowledge. Nor are the chovihanis held in high esteem because of their gifts; rather it is the money brought in by their gifts that gives them a place of honor within the society.

But this story, is after history. A young girl, named Nadya. A fortune-teller. And her future is going to change.

The End
