Descrizione

Hindi Handwriting is a holistic educational language book with a focus on learning how to write Hindi and takes a creative approach to learning. It also looks through the kaleidoscopic lens of dyslexia.
Most people have no real grasp of the breadth and depth of dyslexia, what it is or how to support children and adults. Educators who don't know that they don't know, exacerbate the problem when they have no real awareness. The disadvantages, aside from academia, affect so many areas of the dyslexic's daily life. The British Dyslexia Association estimates 10% of the UK population as having dyslexia, though there are likely to be far more who are unaware and cannot fathom their experience of inconsistencies seemingly arising out of left field.
Hindi language learners, whether dyslexic or not, who experience difficulty in knowing which directions the letters go, will find a solution in the workbook section. Each letter is accompanied by arrows and numbers to indicate the direction and sequence in addition to guidance for unfamiliar sounds and how to pronounce them.
Hindi Handwriting is uniquely different from other Hindi language books as it expands upon the pragmatic elements of language by exploring the spiritual roots. It does this by highlighting how meditation helps to optimise study and concentration, clarifies symbolic meanings in the sacred AUM shape and sound and makes links between the goddess of learning, Sarasvati, and neuroscience. Lastly, it explores the social and material dimensions of the culture and religion.

We may be highly educated, but if we are without deep integration of thought and feelings, our lives are incomplete. And as long as education does not cultivate an integrated outlook on life, it has little significance.¹

Preface

Hindi Handwriting came about as I was looking for an effective Hindi writing tool. I found some useful books and other materials online, as well as a Hindi app with sound. However, I could not find any printed books with a focus on learning how to write Hindi that provided visual prompts for directions and sequencing. So, I decided to put together a workbook which was originally intended for my own study. Then I thought about my Hindi language class and sharing it with my peers and wondered, why not share it with Hindi learners everywhere?

The heart of this book is the writing section, suitable for all ages and abilities.
