Indian school teaches pupils to write with both hands simultaneously in different languages

I´m a bit skeptik about the following article found in

"A school in India is reportedly teaching its students to use both their hands to write on different subjects simultaneously

All 72 pupils of the Veena Vadini School at Singrauli in Madhya Pradesh use both their hands “with equal ease”, reports Asian News International.

The school set up in 1999, for children aged between four and eight, holds its classes outdoors.

Principal Virangat Sharma said: "All the children here can write on different subjects and in different languages.

"Not just that, these children can use both their hands to write in two different languages on two different subjects at the same time."

One student, Kamla, said: "I know six languages - Hindi, Urdu, English, Roman, Sanskrit and Arabic. I can write in two languages at one time.""

If that where true it would mean that they can play in their heads two conversations at a time, or think about two subjects at a time.. doubtful..

At most I´d say they can write with both hands and can swap their attention many times very quickly between what they are writing with one hand and the other..

interesting that they are doing it anyway..

Bueno, por lo que a mí me toca, sólo hay que ver cómo entienden la música en esa cultura. No me extrañaría nada que pudieran incluso jugar dos partidos de fútbol a la vez...

Estos indios y su polirítmia...
