September 05, 2022: Doctors and bad handwriting have a somewhat troubled relationship–a recent video shared by Industrialist Anand Mahindra proved just that. The chairman of the Mahindra group is an avid social media user and often leaves his followers in splits with his commentary on the social media platform Twitter.
Recently, the 67-year-old Mumbai businessman shared a short video in which a doctor’s handwriting increasingly deteriorates over the years. The 15-second clip was titled “Doctor’s Handwriting be like” and showed how a medico’s handwriting changes throughout his academic career. Take a look at the hilarious video.

The business tycoon captioned the video and said,” Hilarious. But true.” Netizens were on the fence while reacting to the video that was shared humorously. While some agreed that doctors in India have unintelligible handwriting; others noted that it was due to excruciating work pressure.
A comment by a doctor on Mahindra’s post said,” Absolutely true- endorsed by a doctor”.
Another said, “There is a saying, that a Doctor’s prescription only could be deciphered by a chemist. A Doctor with good handwriting is rare. Hence, let us keep pondering about the medicines in a prescription.”
Mahindra’s post was also spotted by former Rajya Sabha MP and avid social media user Subramanian Swamy. He appreciated the post and wrote, “Great research. Will find out what handwriting decode experts say.”
