English Writing Calligraphy
English is now international language of inter-communication between nations at global level. It is, practically, the official language of Pakistan. In our country routine work, agreements and documentation is usually done in English in government as well as private sector. Be it Court decisions, Bank documents, Medical Reports or Official Educational and other Certificates, Accounting or emails, English is used every where. Therefore, schools have adopted English as medium of education. By and large, all scientific, business, management, arts and other fields of education use English as medium of communication and teaching.
Unfortunately in English medium, focus is only on teaching syllabus in English. Hardly any dedicated effort is used to better the handwriting of students. In some schools handwriting improvement is tried through Writing Series. It is, however, observed that this effort does not offer required results in the absence of an expert. Therefore, handwriting of majority of children is usually very bad and it remains the same for rest of their lives. In schools, normally all subjects, except Urdu and Islamic Education, are taught in English, and students write English 70% to 80% of the time.
Need of the hour, for both teachers and parents, is to try to improve Urdu and English handwriting of the students. Like all Arts subjects, Hand Writing is a specialized subject. This, like any other subjects, can not be done without a teacher. It is also observed that many good students do not have good handwriting skills despite securing good positions in their career. More worrisome is the point that teachers too did not have good handwriting themselves! It is a practical observation that sometimes even the students can not read clearly the handwriting of the teachers on black boards.
