International Left-handers Day observed


International Left-handers Day was observed on Monday all over the world including Pakistan with the theme to create awareness about lefthanders. This day was first celebrated in 1976, by its founder, Dean R Campbell whose birthday also happens to be on this day. The day is abundant with left-handed gadgets, books and tools. There are presentations by left-handers about left-handers.
The difficulties of left-handers are highlighted and left- handed people come forward and share their experiences and also tell people how they overcome the problems of being a left-hander. The main objective of International Left-handers Day is to create awareness for everyone to realize that being left-handed is not a handicap. Children should not be discouraged from being left-handers as they may have even more difficulty coping with their right hands if they are after all, naturally left-handed.
