I saw that bad handwriting should be regarded as a sign of an imperfect education. – Mahatma Gandhi
Indeed, it is now battle royal i. e. Pen versus keyboard. Gradually, our traditional handwriting is getting sacrificed at the altar of innovative technologies. These days, people seldom pen their letters to their relatives or send birthday wish card to anyone. Today, everyone prefers to send messages through email, SMS or WhatsUp.
In order keep the handwriting tradition alive and kicking, our school held an English Handwriting Competition on 18th July 2019 for the students of 1st to 10th standards. The objective of this competition was to encourage students to improve their handwriting skills. The competition was organized in the respective classrooms.
Needless to say that handwriting is paramount for intelligent students. This writing practice vitalizes the brain and contributes to better reading fluency. This competition aims to stimulate the students to develop admirable handwriting skills. The awe-inspiring response to this endeavour has prompted our school to hold this competition in the coming years too. Evidently, the majority of students had put in their best foot forward to enhance their handwriting skills. The winners’ names will be disclosed at an appropriate time.
No matter how dazzling a student is or how much effort the student puts in for exam preparations and writing the examination, it is a prerequisite for the student to write the exam with the pen to secure a good percentage. Undeniably, the time the students invest today in handwriting Improvement could produce superior result in the examinations.
A student suffers poignantly if his or her writing is indecipherable. How much ever the keyboard attempts to overthrow the prevalence of handwriting practice, we cannot totally eliminate the crucial role of handwriting.
We should advocate that India should declare a particular day as Handwriting day otherwise the handwriting art will become defunct soon.
