Bhagavad Gita contains all the wisdom in the world. Bhagavad Gita is a dialogue between Arjuna and Krishna and it contains 700 verses and it’s like a panacea for those who seek wisdom and peace.
And if you think reading Bhagavad Gita & understanding each verse is a daunting challenge, how about writing Bhagavad Gita not just merely typing it out, not just scribbling it out on paper but writing the entire Bhagavad Gita the whole 700 verses on Rice Grains.
Yes, you heard me right, writing Bhagavad Gita on rice grains.
Our very own Hyderabad ammayi named ‘Ramagiri Swarika’ has achieved this task of inscribing Bhagavad Gita on grains of rice. It took her 150 hours to finish this and 4,042 grains of rice has been used to finish this micro art.
Who is Ramagiri Swarika?
Swarika is currently pursuing law and her dream is to become a judge. She is a Hyderabad based micro artist, & she started doing micro art from the last four years, till now she had worked on 2000 plus micro arts.
Earlier, she was felicitated by the Governor of Telangana Tamilsai Soundarajan for her artwork on hair strands. She wrote the ‘Preamble of Constitution on hair strands.’
Awards & Recognitions
Delhi Cultural Academy had felicitated her with a national award in 2019 and she was recognised as India’s first woman micro-artist, and she was awarded the International Order Book of records in 2017, and in 2019.
Speaking about her recent success
“I have always had an interest in art and music and have received many awards since my childhood. I started doing micro art from the last four years with a drawing of Lord Ganesha on a rice grain, then the English alphabet on a single rice grain.In my most recent work, I have written the Bhagavad Gita on 4,042 rice grains which took 150 hours to finish. I work with various products to create micro arts, I don’t use magnifying glass for micro artwork and I do milk art, paper carvings and I draw on sesame seeds too.
After being recognized for my work on the national level, I am willing to take my artwork to international platforms,” she said.
Sri Lata, mother of Swarika said, “My daughter developed a passion for art and music from her childhood. I’m very happy to see her receive all this recognition.”
Congrats & All the best for future endeavours 👍
