A good initiative to revive the dying art of Handwriting.Handwriting is an art. Many people have a fantastic handwriting, they get the appreciation for the same. Others try to copy their style by practising it on a regular basis. Some people have illegible handwriting too due to which they might have scored poor marks in exams during childhood.
They say practice makes a man perfect, but I think that didn't work for me because I practiced a lot of handwriting during my student life but it remained almost the same. Nowadays, at times even I can't understand the words that I had written the other day.
Recently a club in my locality organized a handwriting competition. Students of different age groups participated and wrote wonderful essays. I had a talk with some of the organizers of this handwriting competition and they said that nowadays students do not practice handwriting at all, they remain busy writing with different word processing software and take the help of spelling and grammatical correction options in that software itself thus making them very much prone to error in reality. This is true, nowadays we also write words in a very short form to save time and space while sending text messages.
According to the organizers' opinion, they wish to continue with this competition to revive the dying art of handwriting. A good effort, indeed. What do you feel?
