Eminence Arts and Education is organising ‘Right to Write’, a global handwriting awareness drive, in December.
According to Jaishree Chhabrani, Managing Director of Eminence Arts and Education, the idea behind organising the event is to reach out to every child and teenager to encourage them to write. Irrespective of technology adoption, human beings cannot be handicapped by absence of writing skills. Through the event, the organisation plans to hold a global record of reaching out to every corner of the globe with a vision and mission of retaining handwriting skills.

The children will be free to write in any language they wish to. The students from Grade I to Grade X can participate in the event. Chhabrani has invited all schools, colleges, social organisations, NGOs, corporates, social workers to join hands for the event.

“Bad handwriting should be regarded as a sign of an imperfect education. I always regretted my bad handwriting throughout my life and tried to improve it but without success. I recommend that students should try to cultivate a good handwriting, it’s invaluable,” Mahatma Gandhi had said. “The irony of today is that we want our handwriting to look like typed fonts and we try to make our computer fonts look like handwritten ones,” said Chhabrani.

Jaishree Chhabrani has already written several volumes of handwriting books and the books are being used to master the skills by thousands of students all across. With this event, she wants to kindle an awareness drive about the importance of handwriting. It is sad when directors and principals of schools say that there is no time for handwriting since the academic pressure is high, she lamented. “It is a digital world and soon children may not be writing at all! How alarming!! Such scary statements only make the mission all the more important to reach out to every child and empower them with God’s own gift to the human beings,” she added.
Chhabrani has invited various organisations to get associated with the event.
