Srinagar, Dec 28: Aurooj Nasir (20) is on a mission to popularise the art of calligraphy among larger people of Jammu and Kashmir. Hailing from North Kashmir’s Gantamulla Baramulla, Aurooj is a student of fine arts and highly passionate about calligraphy. Aurooj has done her schooling from Baramulla Public School in the Medical stream. After 12th, she developed an interest in Arabic Calligraphy and during the time after the effective abrogation of Article 370 on 5 August 2019 and present pandemic, she got ample time to concentrate on her work. Aurooj says she developed such interest in art and thought of making it her profession. She got admitted in Kashmir University in fine arts this year. Her family and friends appreciated her work which encouraged her, she says.
“I upload my work on Instagram and if someone likes it, they order it. Now, I wrote Surah Ar Rahman and it took me 4 hours to complete it. In this lockdown, I tried to improve my work and focus on my weakness”.
Aurooj believes that every individual is bestowed with some talent and should work on it. She is looking forward to becoming a full-fledged artist and make her parents proud.
Aurooj has created an account on Instagram where she uploads her work and is on Instagram as Calligraphy_byaurooj__
