India: Mr. Satish Gurjar, who may be a peasant by profession, but is a true artist by heart, Mr. Gurjar with his team of 60 artists created a life size portrait of Swami Vivekananda made of grains in 8,000 square feet area on 10th January, 2021 as a token of respect on the occasion of upcoming birthday of Shri Swami Vivekananda (12th January). He dedicated his art work to the Swachhata Mission initiated by Honourable Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi Jee. A gigantic amount of 52 quintal grain was used to create this larger than life portrait. World Book of Records, London applauds the cause and vision of this hidden and talented artist and includes him in its India Edition. On this occasion, Shri Kamal Patel (Minister of Agriculture, Govt. of Madhya Pradesh), Hon'ble Shri Justice B. K. Shrivastava (High Court Judge), Shri Sanjay Gupta (Collector, Harda), Shri Manish Agrawal (SP, Harda), Ms. Shruti Agrawal (SDM, Harda), Shri Pramod Jha (Organizing Secretary, Sanskar Bharti) and other dignitaries were present. The provisional certificate was presented to Shri Satish Gurjar and his team by Mr. Sanjay Panjwani (Secretary, WBR - India) and Mr. Mayank Gupta (Editor, WBRLive). This was informed by Shri Santosh Shukla, Supreme Court Advocate (President, World Book of Records). On being asked about his inspiration or objective behind making such a life-size portrait, Mr. Gurjar revealed that he intentionally chose to pick Swami Vivekananda because he wanted today's youth to brainstorm a bit about the current on goings and evil incidents in society and also the side-effects of media and technology and to move back to the basics and teachings of phenomenal readers like Swami Vivekananda. Being a farmer, he thought to stitch his profession and vision together and thus used grains to make this portrait. While the amount of grain used was 52 quintals, which was provided by Shri Kamal Patel, Agricultural Minister of Madhya Pradesh, there were 8 types of grains used to make this portrait, which were chana, soya-bean, wheat, masoor dal, black til and makka. The making of the whole portrait took 24 hours and there were 60 other people involved, who were from 9 years to 25 years of age.  Mr. Gurjar's journey as a unique artist has just begun and he is working on his idea execution of a floating bottle portrait of some personality, which has not been decided yet as the young artist is grappling with the technicalities of the process and craft. On being asked about the process of making a grain portrait, he told that he learnt it with practice and it is done with making a grid first, then sketching it and making a portrait and then giving shade to give it a 3-D look. The idea of making such portraits took birth in the time of lockdown to Mr. Gurjar and on 23rd April, 2020, he first attempted to make a grain portrait of Honourable Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi Jee on 800 square feet space. He initiated this art not with the intention of becoming famous, but with the intent of sending a message across the society which could serve as an urge to not forget the legendary leaders of our history and to adopt their virtues in life.
