Lizard chirping, according to the Hindus, is considered holy and auspicious. These two creatures are supposed to foretell by their chirping and hooting what is going to befall to certain individuals in certain houses. So firm-rooted and strong this belief has been among the people from time immemorial that there are separate books on lizard chirping and owl hooting. Not only the chirping but also the falling of a lizard on particular portion of the body of a man portends good or evil to him.
If a lizard happens to fall on the head of an individual, then he should be prepared for some rebellion from or caused by others disturbing his peace of mind. If the creature happens to drop on the tuft of hair, it foretells some gain to the person concerned. If it falls on the head, then it indicates death. If the lizard drops on the face, he or she may have the opportunity of seeing some relatives soon. By falling on the eye-brows, the lizard prophesies royal favour while its fall on the upper lip indicates loss of wealth and fall on the under lip, gain of wealth. The fall of the lizard on other portions of the body indicates good or evil that can be mentioned as follows.
