Welcome to Association of Left-Handers’ www.lefthanders.org
ASSOCIATION OF LEFT-HANDERS
Left-Handedness has been looked at with a lot of curiosity, doubt, apprehension and as something inauspicious, evil or sinister. At the same time the fields of Sport and Arts are filled with innumerable Left-Handers who have excelled beyond imagination and more and more Left-Handers are included intentionally in sports teams.
This contradictory attitude of the society is an intrinsic part of the life of most Left-Handers. Children are discouraged and forcibly obstructed from using left hand for writing, eating and many daily activities, not only in rural and backward areas but in modern urban societies as well. This has a long lasting ill effect on the psyche and the overall personality of the child, which inhibits a natural healthy growth and mental and physical efficiency. On top of it all, every left-hander has to live in a world designed exclusively for right-handers.
We, in the Association, have been trying to remove these superstitious misconceptions from the minds of the parents, teachers and the society at large. Also, we conduct surveys about Handedness patterns, Personality traits, many aspects of Cerebral Dominance and guide both Right and Left-Handers for the better use of both the hands.
We are growing very fast in number. Today, a few thousand people from all walks of life, from many parts of the world, are members.
