So let me tell you this that is it correct books written by hands. ya, it's correct how see pen, pencil are can't write itself. There is something need to do this. and when talk about our hands. if you read science textbook in our classes 6 to 10, what is over there is that our whole body our connected to our brain. so hands also connect to this so when we give message to brain I wanted to write this word or to pick up this thing so what will brain do. Brain will decode the message and accept and through encoding the message will give to hands and as this proccess do our hands working for particular that's work. so the whole is just like that so that's all about how it's works and ya it's true books written by hands.
