Srinagar, Apr 23: A teenage ‘self-taught’ artist is winning hearts of people with her calligraphy work which she uploads on different social media platforms.
Muneeba Bashir(19), daughter of Bashir Ahmad Khan resident of Malikgund village in Imamsahib belt of Shopian, who is Laboratory Technician student, has so far made hundreds of calligraphy pieces.
Muneeba, while talking to news agency—Kashmir News Observer (KNO) said that she was interested in making sketches and other arts since her childhood, however, last year due to some family issues and lockdown, she was feeling alone and depressed.
“To beat anxiety and depression, I started making calligraphy pieces and within just few days I learned this art and started making calligraphy pieces,” she said. “Once I started spending time in calligraphy, I was feeling relaxed and it was giving me a peace of mind and since then I spent one to two hours in calligraphy work every day.”
She said that this work isn’t affecting her studies but instead this art work gives her freshness and if she even spends time in art work in evening hours, she feels fresh.
Muneeba said that the youth of J&K are very much talented but there is need direct them properly towards their goal and youth must work hard and show steadfastness in order to achieve any goal—(KNO)
