In a world where people don’t like change and are wary of suggestions & advice, Hindustan Pencils Pvt. Ltd. has done something exceptionally genuine. Nobody ever realized the fact that the world runs and abides by the majority rule and cater to right-handed people instead of being neutral since the left-handed people owing to their meager number.
In our fast paced life where nobody cares a dime about someone’s plight, this special gesture from Hindustan Pencils Pvt. Ltd really deserves a thumbs up. A mother identified how her left-handed daughter battled her everyday struggles! Just like a concerned mother she wrote to them about the needs of her left-handed daughter who had trouble sharpening pencils since the sharpener’s blade was towards the left and the pencil had to be rotated clockwise. Guess what they custom made a sharpener for her left handed 4 year old!
The central problem with the design of the sharpener was the fact that blades in these special sharpeners manufactured by Hindustan Pencils Pvt. Ltd tilts towards the right and the pencil needs to be rotated anti-clockwise making it easier for a left-handed person. This recent incident makes us re-believe that some companies still believe that the emotions of each customers is valuable!
She recalls how her intelligent 4 year old narrated her plight of not being able to sharpen her pencil will other kids easily could! She penned down the whole incident thanking HP Ltd in her facebook post! Here’s a link to the original post that she wrote to thank Hindustan pencils Pvt Ltd!
