August 13 is designated International Lefthanders Day by lefthanders International. It was first observed on the 13th of August, in the year 1976. As the name suggests, it is meant to promote awareness of the inconveniences faced by left-handers in a predominantly right-handed world. It celebrates their uniqueness and differences, who are from seven to ten percent of the world’s population. Hundreds of millions of left-handed people in today’s society have to adapt to use right handed tools and objects.
