14 Worst Problems That Left Handed People Face In India

The world is custom made for the right handed. Roughly 11% of the world’s population has a prominent ‘left’ hand. That makes us a minority and add to it, back home it’s also considered a taboo by some. As such there are problems unique to the lefties.

Here’s a list of fourteen things that most left handed people encounter in their everyday lives.

1. That look of disapproval when you extend your left hand for the prasad
