Prime Minister Narendra Modi praised Odisha’s Bhagyashree Sahu during Mann Ki Baat programme

Bhubaneswar:31/1/21: It was a proud moment for Bhagyashree Sahu of Odisha’s Rourkela as Prime Minister Narendra Modi praised her during Mann Ki Baat programme, today.

“Although she (Bhagyashree Sahu) is a student of engineering, in the past few months, she started learning the art of Pattachitra and has mastered it. On her way to college, Bhagyashree found soft stones, and collected and cleaned them. Later, she painted these stones in Pattachitra style for two hours every day,” the Prime Minister said during the programme.

“After painting these stones, she started gifting them to her friends. During the lockdown, she started painting on bottles too. And now, she even conducts workshops on this art form. A few days ago, on the birth anniversary of Subhash Babu, Bhagyashree paid him a unique tribute done on stone,” said Modi.

“I wish her all the best for her future endeavours. A lot new can be learnt and done through art and colours,” the PM added.
