Assam artist makes portrait to pay tribute to soldiers

Twenty-year-old Rahul Pareek from Assam has already created a buzz with his unique art of making portraits with discarded mobiles and electronics.

Rahul has now crafted a painting with similar products to pay his respects to the Indian Army jawans who lost their lives at Galwan.

“I have used wasted Chinese mobile and other electronic gadgets to portray a dragon which represents China. I believe the government has taken the right decision to ban Chinese apps. With love and respect for my country, this time I made an artwork to represent the braveness and courage of our warriors and soldiers to fight against all odds. This is my tribute to the Indian soldiers,” Rahul said.

The 4×5 feet portrait was completed in a week’s time.  He also wants to reflect the mission of ‘Aatmanirbhar Bharat’ by Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

Earlier, Rahul made a portrait of team India captain Virat Kohli when the team India was in Guwahati. He met Kohli in Guwahati and gifted him the portrait.

Apart from that, Rahul had earlier presented such portraits of several celebrities including India women captain Mithali Raj and Assam Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal, among others.

With this type of unique art work Rahul has already got berths in the India and Asia Book of Records. He is now aiming to get a place in the Guinness Book of World records.
