    A person’s handwriting is as unique as their personality, which makes it tempting to connect the two. Mr. Rajore explained the students the nuances of the science. He addressed a gathering of 150 eager students and faculty alike who were spellbound by the facts he put before them. This is because handwriting is the pattern of our psychology expressed in symbols on the page and these symbols are as unique as our own DNA which was beautifully expressed by Mr. Rajore in the workshop. The students managed to learn the basics of the science as to how your handwriting can be used to judge a personality of an individual and it may be used in management studies and in every aspect of business to its fullest extent.
