Our fingers and our emotions are linked together in our literature, music, fine arts, and religious teachings. Most of the things, which we think we are able to do with our hands, are actually done with the help of the fingers.
How do they do?
All our finger movements are controlled by a tough set of fibers called tendons, which run like a system of pulley cords from finger, hand and wrist bones to the muscles that operate them according to Evan McLeod.
Any sixth finger is considered as symbol of good luck. The thumb operating independently from the other four fingers is the busiest and most important of all the digits. Because of the thumb’s unique ability to cross over and link up with any one of the other fingers for a pinch, grab, we can get along with one thumb and one other finger, or even just the stump of another finger.
The middle finger is the strongest, followed in order by the index finger, the fourth finger and the little finger. Fingers two and three are the fastest of the five. The little finger is the slowest, but teachers of music and typewriting to be the least receptive to training because of an innate strong weakness measure finger four.
One finger cannot do much all by itself but when in a group they form a strong and powerful fist. "Unity is strength". I accept it. This is symbol of team spirit in management. They produce much more than what they would do if they worked individually.

As thumb up is a sign of encouragement or victory, similarly, fingers are used for expressing various "Mudras" in traditional dances. A Mudra (Sanskrit word meaning sign or seal) is a gesture or position, usually of the hands, that locks and guides energy flow and reflexes to the brain. From the little finger to the thumb: each finger represents earth, metal, fire, wood, and water, respectively.
The entire universe lies within your ten fingers and it is also said that there is an infinite number of Mudras although they are just 10. Mudras can be used both for meditation and healing.

Fingers – The Language
No doubts fingers have proved the work of lips too. Fingers have become voice for deaf, dumb and blind. Helen Keller said, "Once I knew only darkness and stillness... my life was without past or future... but a little word from the fingers of another fell into my hand that clutched at emptiness, and my heart leaped to the rapture of living."
The utilization differs in every case. It depends on you. Either you play, write, sign, put on piano, get rhythm & sound or eat. Because you have different fingers!
