A young woman from south Kashmir’s Anantnag district is following her two passions simultaneously by working as a doctor as well as turning waste material into art pieces.
Tabish Aijaz Khan from the Iqbal Abad area of Anantnag town is working in a hospital and has entered the Asian as well as Indian Book of Records.
Talking to the news agency—Kashmir News Observer (KNO), Tabish said she was in 4th standard when she started making painting and since then, calligraphy and making art pieces have become her passion.
“I used to make art pieces on waste material like Chinar leaves, broken cups, stone, wooden blocks and other things as people throw such things away considering them useless. I believe nothing is useless and even such things can be turned into beautiful art pieces,” she said.
Khan said that up to 2016, calligraphy was her hobby but when she started uploading art pieces on social media, she was appreciated and it became her passion.
“I have even got entry into the Asian Book of Records as well as the Indian Book of Records for making art pieces on Chinar leaves. I have also won several awards for art pieces,” she said.
Tabish said that making art pieces works as a stress releaser for her as she had interlinked both passions. Whenever I feel stressed, I make art pieces and it relaxes me, she said.
“Painting helps me to relieve my stress and I am going to continue my passion under all conditions and circumstances, Tabish said. “I have even sold some of my art pieces while I have kept most of them at my home.”
The youth should avoid wasting time in futile exercises rather they must work on those things which empower them, she said
