Good Luck.
People in Japan are having [surgeon / surgery] on their hands to change their future. The Japanese are big [believers / beliefs] in palm reading. They spend a lot of money [on / at] visiting palm readers. A cheaper palm reading costs around $70. Many people are unhappy [but / with] the lines on their palms. They think some of the lines mean a [partner / part] of their future will be bad. They are having an [operational / operation] to change the length and shape of the lines because they hope this will give them a [brighten / brighter] future. The operation [takes / taking] just 15 minutes and costs about $1,000. The doctor uses an electric scalpel to [burn / burnt] a line on the palm of the hand. It leaves a scar that takes a month to [heel / heal] . The line looks like a money-luck line, happiness line or love line.

There are many doctors who say [challenging / changing] the lines on your palm does not work. They say it cannot [change / charge] your future because it isn't [naturally / natural] . Subodh Gupta, a palm reader from London, agrees. He said: "I read about this surgery and I was very [surprising / surprised] . Even by [having / had] surgery, the lines cannot be changed." He added: "If you want to improve your [fortunately / fortune] , take physical actions. So if you want [greater / greatness] health, do some exercise." However, people who have had the surgery [says / say] it has changed their life. A Tokyo surgeon said he gave a female [patience / patient] a wedding line and she got married soon after. He said two other patients [won / win] the lottery after he made their fortune line longer.
