Towering tribute


Towering tribute

Chandigarh: Constable Ashok Kumar from Ludhiana has made a record size painting of Guru Nanak as his tribute to mark the 550th Parkash Purb celebrations. He is hoping that the state will display the painting at Kartarpur corridor.

The 18 ft x 12 ft painting, which covers nearly two-storey building, has already been recognised as the largest painting of the first Sikh Guru by the Indian Book of Records.

Ashok, who started his life as a sketch maker, says he worked past midnight for 17 days after his duty hours and spent nearly Rs1.25 lakh on the painting.

 “Several eminent persons, including educationist SS Johl, Brig Inder Mohan Singh (retd), NRI Parminder Singh from New Zealand and Youth Akali Dal leader Gurdeep Singh helped me financially,” he adds. — Jupinderjit Singh
