Famed for insight, artistic ability, & for their power to work in hot-pressure environments. A good percentage of Chitras are Mathematicians, Statisticians, Mechanics(esp automobile), photographers, etc. Chitra are quite competitively ambitious types who form excellent strategic plans. Chitra people fortunately or unfortunately helps in causing splits in teams as they tend to support the underdogs, instead of the chieftains. But at the same time if they are kept as the commander in chiefs, chitra people will sacrifice everything to retain the power of the chieftains. Interesting conversationalists & entertainers, esp. in the Budha-ruled padaas.
