JORHAT, June 27: A seven-day workshop by calligrapher Tulsipriya Bordoloi on how to improve handwriting among young children concluded successfully at the Shemford Futuristic School on Monday in Jorhat.
The students who had an interactive session with their coach and instructor Tulsipriya, a known calligrapher of the Saras method, were handed over certificate of participation. Saras is known for its varied courses starting from handwriting improvement, calligraphy, handwriting alysis and others, which are mainly aimed at improving the confidence and will power of the students,
Instructor Tulsipriya Bordoloi said, “Handwriting is a kind of meditation and the brain acts as a photogenic memory which is mostly responsible for developing the handwriting through reflexes of the hand and the fingers. In technical terms the hand is like a printer which delivers according to the data fed by the main computer, that is the brain. The workshop’s main motive is to improve the handwriting skills of a person within 14 hours through the use of brain exercise and without deleting photogenic memory which has already created a permanent impression in the brain ever since the boy/girl started writing properly from the age of six onwards.”
“Handwriting is divided into cursive and block writing. Cursive consumes additiol time compared to block writing. In the last seven days of workshop, we had identified a girl who was not only left-handed but used to write at 90 degree straight line without slanting. But after completion of only five days, the girl started shifting from straight to slanting. There are some who write in reverse gear technique, more popularly known as negative writing. According to study it has been found that such persons always have a negative attitude towards life and with an inclition towards crimil activity. Training extensively with us will definitely remove the habit of reverse. In fact, we reserve two seats for anyone with negative writing in our workshops and, especially if one is from a poor fincial background, we provide the training for free,” added Tulsipriya.
Often bad handwriting disturbs the educatiol and learning progress resulting in disappointment and failure. The general notion is that good handwriting is always appreciated and illegible handwriting leaves one embarrassed. A number of studies has proved that examition success is strongly connected with handwriting quality as neat and clearly written papers tend to generate positive vibes and attract the teachers to award a few more marks, besides the regular score through written tests and thus it has been desired that a handwriting class, besides arts, sports and drama be also included in the regular school curriculum.
