A Note about Prakash Iyer's Handwriting/Signature Sample:

I got the access to this Sample while i purchased Prakash's book The Habit of Winning . I think i must have been one of the first few people to have brought this book, that’s why i got this book personally signed by the author himself (Check the Source of handwriting section below). I had been quite inspired by his articles in Careers 360 magazine (I infact used to buy the magazine only to read his article, which used to appear in almost every edition).
One difference that this sample has (which not many samples in this blog had) is that it contains both his signature as well as a piece of handwriting. As Signature usually represents one's Public self, having both Signature as well as the handwriting helped arrive at more balanced overview of his personality.
