There’s no deny to the truth that Left-handers are the odd ones out.
Readers you won’t believe for about 15% to 20% of the population are Lefties. But the fact is these people never get any reorganization by the society, if we see all the gadgets, none of them are left hander friendly, if we see awkwardly designed desks r cooking utensils, those are only made to ease right handers.
Recently an Americn Journal of Psychology published a research regarding Left handers, they mentions people using left hand are more creative as compared to right handers, and are better in at least one creative feature. They are good at contradictory thinking, and at times they would definitely come up with a brilliant solution.
In case if both parents are left-handed, half of their children may be left-handed. Similarly if two parents are right-handed, 2% of their children would be left-handed. Yet it is also seen that people who are dominantly using their left hands, their family consist more lefties.
We see lots of people who are left-handed but they leads with the right hand. Uptill now there’s a bit confusion among scientists. But somehow research point a difficult association among environment and genes. While, no exact set of “lefties genes” revealed yet. There also some different brain wiring see among right handers vs lefthanders.

The annual event for Lefties is being celebrated globally, it was first celebrated in 1992 by the UK based Left-Handers Club, in order to increase awareness about the lifestyle of left-handed. They have also developed a website in which they stated, “it’s a day “when left-handers everywhere can celebrate their sinistrality and increase public awareness of the advantages and disadvantages of being left-handed.”
