LAL KITAB

Lal Kitab (Hindi: लाल किताब, Urdu: لالکتاب, literally Red Book) is a set of five Urdu language books on Hindu astrology and palmistry, written in the 19th century, based on the Samudrika Shastra. 
Poetic verses with philosophy and hidden nuances form the core farmans or upaya (remedy recommended) of the book. 
It is believed to have Persian origins and has led to field of remedial astrology known as Lal Kitab remedies, that is simple remedies for various planetary afflictions in the horoscope or birth chart, which have over the years become part of the folk traditions of the region, that includes North India and Pakistan Although, the author of the original verses is unknown or a matter of debate, however, Pandit Rup Chand Joshi (1898–1982), resident of Village Pharwala , who authored the presently available version during the years 1939 to 1952 in five volumes, is regarded as the master of this science. 
According to some believers Ravana is considered to be the original author of Lal Kitab. 
They say that when Ravana lost power due to arrogance, he also lost possession of Lal Kitab which later surfaced in a place called Aaad in Arabia, where it got translated into Urdu and Persian 
The names of the five set of books authored by Pt. Rup Chand Joshi, together called as Lal Kitab with their years of publication, are as follows. 
A copy of first book published in 1939 is preserved in Lahore Museum. :-

For the first time in the history of astrology, Lal Kitab introduced a new style of horoscope analysis with quick and affordable remedies, which were devoid of remedies like pooja and wearing of gemstones, generally recommended by other branches of Vedic astrology and Jyotisha.
