Strolling on Avinashi road, Coimbatore looking for a studio to take my passport picture I happened to see sculptures arranged in a corner. Sculpture of different Gods/Goddesses, of flower vase, and of figurines. Under a tree on his old ‘thela gadi’ sat Prakash. Prakash is from Gujarat. His only talent is to make sculpture of any form.
Lost his mother when 6. Dad was working at Gujarati Samaj in Coimbatore and had pulled him in to work at the food mess there. Soon he learned the art of making stuff out of clay from his dad and started his own small business. Not just that he also supports his sister’s education.
More about his work on my next Video by Friday.
