In our department we had one lady , she used to remember the employee numbers of more than hundred people. It is a common story with friends that whenever they loose their mobile set they say I have lost all the contacts. It is always better to have writing habits and noting down important numbers, events etc instead of totally depending on the Technology. Yes, Technology is also required and we should also know the effective use of Technology. Half knowledge puts us in trouble.
"If you don't understand my silence, you will not understand my words"
It will be a fearful situation that students will not be able to write themselves.
Knowledge is power.
Occasionally when I have to write or scribble something using pen, I feel difficulty and if it is a bit long my fingers pain.
Nowadays I am writing only when something has to be drafted in local language(as transliteration is laborious than writing). Other than that my writing is mostly restricted to scribbling phone numbers or some details while taking a call, and scribbling the grocery items and vegetables to be purchased, before starting to market.
I posted this thread that describes the initiative to revive the dying art of handwriting. Earlier a pen and paper were essential items to be kept on the table, nowadays we use technologies to write things. Actually, if we try to analyze our writing habits it will be found that we write many things throughout the day, though only by using the keyboards. We post comments on different social networking sites, send texts to others with the help of technology but it is also essential not to forget the art of writing on paper with a pen or pencil.
"Life is easier when you enjoy what you do"
Thoughts exchanged is knowledge gained.
It's very frustrating when someone asks me to write on the paper with a pen. It looks good when I see kids writing on the notebook. It's true that kids learn easily when they write things. I doubt in future kids would write with a pen but they would ask to bring their own laptop and type whatever work they will do in the class and save it there itself. I remember the things which we used in our childhood are getting obsolete like the fountain pens similarly the pens and notebooks will disappear or will be used less in future.
" The two most important days in your life are the day when you are born and the day you find out why? "
– Mark Twain
In the next class, additional task was assigned to write similarly in English and in order to curb the relaxation in writings, final grading was incorporated in the progress report of class four thus writing habits in both the languages became the unavoidable exercise and this continued till we passed out class seven.
However, needless to say, such practice changed our handwriting looking appreciably beautiful and still my handwriting reflects the strenuous efforts made in the early years of my school - days.
However, I ensure to continue my writing habit by writing something in my diary regularly every day. My handwriting is my identity. My family members, relatives and friends easily recognize my handwriting, and they always admire my beautiful handwriting and my tough signature.
