Kaushik Dasgupta of Andhra Pradesh made New National & World Records during Lockdown to motivate people
Staying positive and optimistic during times of crisis can be challenging, but it is not impossible. Doing the things which you like and passionate about can definitely be a reason to come out. And creative art plays a big role in that. Creativity is not exclusive to the arts. Creativity is just putting things together that were not together before, and usually in a useful way. Artists can creatively look at some aspects of their world, whether visual, sound, or ideas, and highlight these in a way that they were not highlighted before.
That corner of creativity has been explored by Kaushik Dasgupta of Siliguri, West Bengal who loves to do different things in different ways. He was a professional Photojournalist and had worked for various popular leading newspapers in North Bengal for 17 years. His photography received many awards and was famous for its uniqueness. His photographs speak and convey messages in a subtle way which makes the viewers mesmerized.
Everybody can write in a formal way from left to write. Everybody can write quotes formally. But did you ever try writing from right to left? For creative artists everything is possible. Kaushik made a unique record by writing the famous verse “Now is the time for all good men to come to the aid of their country” in Reverse Mirror format in 27 seconds only (53 letters).
