Mangalore: Handwriting is part of our personality. Powerful handwriting is also an effective way to impress others, said Mangalore University Vice Chancellor Prof. P Subrahmanya Yadapadithaya opined.

Addressing the gathering after inaugurating “The stroke of the pen and the power of the tongue rules supreme”- a workshop on calligraphy organised in collaboration with Association of British Scholars (ABS) at Dr. Shivarama Karantha Sabhabhavana of University College Mangalore here on Tuesday, he said that patience, close observation, imagination and mentoring can make our handwriting beautiful and legible. 

Chief Guest, Principal of the college Dr. Anasuya Rai said, "Best hobbies keep us active and they add liveliness to our life". ABS Mangalore Chapter Secretary Dr. KR Chandrasekhar welcomed the guests. Program Convenor and ABS Executive Committee Member Dr. S N Shivprakash introduced the guests.

Resource Person, Former President of ABS Prof. KC Janardhan, Treasurer Prof. Shripad KS, Chandrakanth of Lions Club, teaching-non-teaching staff and students of the college were present. Rekha Shetty of English Department mastered the ceremony, Sandeep Shetty extended vote of thanks.


Neither the person nor the teacher is to blame for bad handwriting, rather we are all victims of a bad system. Beautiful handwriting is not a gift by birth. This can only be achieved through observation and learning, said the resource person, former president of ABS, Prof. KC Janardhan. He quoted Gandhiji as saying, “Bad handwriting is a sign of imperfect education”.

Explaining various techniques of beautiful handwriting with light humour, he said that in attractive handwriting, the size of the letters and the spacing between them should be adequate. “If we forget handwriting, we lose cognitive power, memory and our vocabulary becomes barren. Beautiful handwriting is a simple tool to create a wonderful impression about us in others,” he opined.
