A small school in rural India called Veena Vandini School is training students to become ambidextrous. Currently, all 300 students of the school located in a small village in India are ambidextrous, according to odditycentral.com.

Statistics show that only one percent of the global population is ambidextrous, and the founder of Veena Vandini School, in Madhya Pradesh is trying to change that trend.

VP Sharma who happens to be a Former soldier, said he was inspired to engage in ambidexterity training which was initially started by India’s first president Rajendra Prasad (in office from 1950 to 1962) who himself was ambidextrous.

“I read in a magazine that Dr. Rajendra Prasad India’s first president used to write with both hands. This inspired me to give it a try. Later when I launched my school at my native village, I tried training the students.”

Mr. Sharma added that “We began training students from standard I and by the time they reach standard III, they were comfortable writing with both the hands.

“Students of standard VII and VIII can write with speed and accuracy. Further, they can write two scripts simultaneously, one with each hand. Students also know several languages, including Urdu.”

Odditycentral.com reports that every 45-minute class at Veena Vandini includes 15-minutes devoted to handwriting practice, ensuring that every student develops the ability to write with both hands.

VP Sharma is highly confident that the skill does not only enables students to learn multiple languages, but also helps them practice writing the same words in different languages at the same time.

However, as good as the training might appear, studies have found that it could be harmful to cognitive development.

A scientific study conducted in America showed that ambidextrous children performed worse than left- or right-handers on a range of skills, especially in math, memory, and logical reasoning.
