Happy International Left Handers Day to all the lefties out there! Yes, 13 August is the day for the southpaws, since 1976 at least.
On International Left Handers Day, we celebrate the uniqueness of being left handed. After all, left handers are in good company. Some famous left handers include Helen Keller, Barack Obama, Henry Ford, Lewis Carrol, Ringo Starr, Oprah Winfrey and the list goes on. Did you know that even Leonardo da Vinci was left handed (well, some say ambidextrous)? Genius, correct?
Happy International Left Handers Day
In honour of International Left Handers Day, here are 10 things which lefties will appreciate.
