Developing Mind Power through Calligraphy

Calligraphy is an art of beautiful handwriting which has withstood since ancient times. This art can be performed with the help of various tools like the calligraphic pens, brushes, wooden blocks etc. which enables the artists (or calligraphist) to make innovative and imaginative designs.

Calligraphy has been observed to develop mind power of those who practice it. Let us know how?

·         It acts like a catalytic agent that activates the creative instincts of a person which indirectly involves the participation of neo-cortex of brain, thus making it more efficient.
·         It improves the imaging power that helps in developing photographic memory. It is again an activity of brain that ultimately improves mind power.
·         It improves control on precise finger movements thereby making handwriting better.
·         Enhanced concentration levels are attained as it involves conscious involvement of the brain.
·         It helps in increasing the ability to focus on things, whether studies, mind games or extracurricular.
·         In case of kids with Dysgraphia, calligraphy can be taken up as a specific training program to help them build better mind motor coordination.

Handwriting vs. Technology: The Battle…

With the advent of high-end instruments, handwriting has been highly threatened. Styles like cursive have severely been affected due to these progressions and encroachments. Mostly in countries like US, UK and Europe, learning cursive for children is no more a necessity and so has been discarded from the school curriculums.

With the emerging use of technology, the original form of writing, its essence and its meaning has been observed to lose identity. What effects are seen due to gigantic adaptation of technology today? Let’s highlight…

·         One in every third child suffers from handwriting problems and one in every fifth child writes in SMS language. Does this make him/her well verse with the spellings and word or sentence formations? NO.

·         Internet platform has encouraged the use of slangs. They have now become the order of the day. The language is losing its sanctity which not only affects the writing, but also the speech.

·         Evernote and OneNote has replaced sticky notes, keyboards have replaced pens. Writing is no more practiced for several days at a stretch. How does it assure that the students will be able to meet the defined writing standards? They would undoubtedly have handwriting tribulations.

·         Examinations all over are taken on papers, at least in the primary stages. What do you think the reason is? It is because those who write in hand, consciously involves the brain, drives concentration and improves understanding. While those addicted to technology only get stressed during the exams time as they lack self-confidence to attempt it.

There are infinite reasons why handwriting cannot be neglected. Technology isn’t meant to be dragging away its importance. It is a means of simplifying life but not eradicating the basis of existence and survival i.e. education.
