In the age of keyboards, writing by hand is seldom resorted to. Clean running handwriting is a further rarity and much more is calligraphy. That’s how I met Janardhan whose artistry with the quill and ink is superb – he has a passion for calligraphy. Of course, he is a multi-faceted person who is a delight to meet.

Known Janardhan for over fifteen years. He has walked a different path by earning a living out of something people said no one could earn a living from and that is “handwriting”. He has definitely earned the title “man with a golden hand” as I know of no other person who has made a living out of handwriting.”

Linda Heftler,

“I know Mr.Janardhan when I was working for Camlin. In 1992 when I saw his handwriting I was completely obsessed with his talent. I was looking for a guru who can give some guidelines on how to improve one’s own handwriting. His guidelines were really helpful to me when I began conducting Handwriting Competitions in Schools. Whenever few teachers asked me how to improve handwriting, I would always recommend the name of Mr.K.C.Janardhan. 

Vijay Shinde,
Regional Sales manager, Kangaroo Group of Industries, Bangalore -2013

He is a versatile man. His calibre in Calligraphy is unparalleled. Today my son who is studying in Engineering has a passion for Calligraphy. He gets an invitation from his erstwhile school to write some slogans aesthetically. I introduced my son to Calligraphy. In fact, the man behind my son’s talent is Mr. K.C. Janardhan. There may be quite many like my sons who have been motivated to write beautifully. Their handwriting must have created a far-reaching impact on those who have seen & have appreciative value. I have attended quite many training sessions conducted by Mr. K.C. Janardhan 15 years back & happy that he still carries the same zeal & enthusiasm in the field of “Handwriting” even today. He is a rare species on this earth.

Vijay Shinde,
Regional Sales manager, Kangaroo Group of Industries, Bangalore -2013

I have known Janardhan for over 2 decades and our relationship has only matured over time. He is gifted with a flair for exquisite handwriting which he deeply enjoys. A man who sticks to his commitments, I remember even in our first meeting he completed his assignment though it was past midnight and it was his birthday. He reaches out to several people and is keen on creating value through work or relationships. His outgoing nature and desire to make a positive impact have enabled him to explore uncharted territory, so I can confidently say the best is yet to come.”

This is to certify that Prof. K.C.Janardhan has done a Copperplate Style Calligraphy piece of Sir Winston Churchill’s “My Early Life – 1874 to 1908” for Bangalore Club in April 2007. Sir Winston Churchill had penned down his experiences in Bangalore during early life. At Bangalore Club, we have created a special corner at the main foyer of the Club known as “Churchill Corner” where this Calligraphed piece is displayed. The members have appreciated the quality of Copperplate Calligraphy which was the style followed during the late 1800’s and 1900’s in England. We are sure that Prof. K.C.Janardhan would continue to create such interesting pieces of Calligraphy, to visually delight more people.
