Concerns of ‘Left-Handers’

Updated on August 12, 2015

I’m sure you all have heard something about these well-known personalities Aristotle (Greek philosopher and scientist), Bill Gates (Microsoft), Mahatma Gandhi (Father on nation, India), Barack Obama (US President), Charlie Chaplin, Ratan Tata (TATA Group, India) and Sachin Tendulkar (Legendary Cricketer, India) – right! They are master in their respective field whether it is business, politics, film making or sports. But one thing is common among all them, guess what!! Yes they are Left-handers.

When and Why

They all recall me that today is 13th August and all over the world, this day is being celebrated as International Lefthanders Day (the day was first observed in 1976). The main objective of this day to spread the awareness of the inconvenience faced by the Left-handers.

There’s additionally a much more serious side towards day, which spreads awareness regarding the special needs of left-handed kids. Also, left-handers are a lot more likely to develop schizophrenia than right-handers, for reasons not well understood.

Left-handers are hateful throughout the globe, whether it is India or any other country. In Latin there is word called “Sinistra” for left-hand, which itself mean ominous or sinister. Here are some more examples which show right-handers are more favourite. Take a look –

  • One noted example is that in England during Victorian time students were forced to use right-hand instead of left-hand.
  • Only 10% of the world’s population is left-handers so good and services are being manufacture keeping right-handers in mind. Computer keyboard and chair with writing-pad are designed to make for right-handers.

Fact from Science

Science reveal that it all depends on gene whether a person become left-hander or right-hander. Allele called PCSK-46 gets changed frequently in mother’s womb and the result is a child become lefty or righty.

This is an ongoing debate one should not be allow to discriminate between the two. As we all are God gifted so everyone should be treated equally.
