Which one of the two ‘Thankyou’ notes would you like better?

Did you know the Hindi word for Thankyou is ‘Dhanyawaad’ धन्यवाद !?

Handwriting is very personal, very powerful, and a beautiful expression of your thoughts. In the era of digital learning and technology-driven communication, it has often been ignored and forgotten.

This post is to emphasize why we need to #bringbackthehandwriting.

The emotion that a handwritten note brings out in a reader is very different from typed words. “As no two people are exactly the same, no two fingerprints, or handwriting samples, are exactly alike either.”

It has a strong connection to memory. Writing by hand tends to boost your ability to retain information, comprehend new ideas, and be more productive — with the added bonus of eliminating the distractions of your device.

For young kids, here are some proven methods to encourage writing:

  1. Ask for their help in preparing the shopping list.
  2. Ask them to write with fingers/sticks in sand.
  3. No kid ever said no to chalk on sidewalks.
  4. Write letters to far-away friends and relatives.
  5. Encourage your child to write their own books.
