I have god-awful handwriting. My notes should be put on powerpoint slides and presented as mandatory lesson plans for third grade teachers to show their charges what NOT to do when it comes to putting pencil or pen to paper. I’m fascinated by folks whose handwriting has flair along with the functionality of actually being readable. The pinnacle of my penmanship was in the 3rd grade when I learned the cursive language. Rolling downhill from there, I am to the point where I often can’t even decipher my own handwriting.
All of this is to say, I was blown away when I read that there is a newspaper in India that is actually HAND-WRITTEN each day by a team of calligraphers. It’s a Muslim paper, but they actually hire women, which is apparently kind of a lib thing to do in that section of India.
