Ever Wondered Why Some People Can Roll Their Tongue And Some Can't? We know The Answer

Almost every one of you in 'your time' has practiced rolling off the tongue. I remember when I was trying to roll up my tongue in the biology class and my teacher told me that it is not the thing everyone can do as it is all related to genetics.

That time, I just accepted what she said and didn't mull over it but later when I saw my younger brother trying the same, I decided to actually know the reason behind not being able to roll over the tongue. Yes, I found that it is completely inaccurate that 'rolling up tongue depends on genetics'.

So for now as you all know that anyone can try doing it, let's learn the quick steps and roll it up. Whoa!
