    Guwahati: At a time, when the people of the state, irrespective of young and old, have been struggling to overcome the fear and stress caused by the Covid-19 pandemic, Chayanika Shristi Borah, a 19-year-old girl of Tezpur town has earned accolade for her unique and creative art works.

    Recently, Chayanika was recognised by the Assam Book of Records for her wonderful and inspiring works. She paints on waste bottles, kettles, lamps, tea pots, cups and plates, using acrylic colour and dry clay with an aim to promote awareness on waste materials.

    Talking to Time8, Chayanika said, “I have been focussing on to showcase Assamese artefacts, culture and tradition through my painting. My objective is to share our rich cultural diversity to the rest of the world.”

    Sharing the onset of her idea of painting on waste materials, she said, “I always wondered seeing how beer and whisky bottles were thrown away and dumped the corners. It looked ugly. Initially I decided to clean the places I saw. Later, I realised the potential of these thrashes and started painting on it.”

    The varieties of characters of her paintings include – prominent Assamese women, historic relics, traditional attires, animals, cartoons, animals like rhinoceros, temples, namghars etc.

    Chayanika informed Time8 that a good number of people from her neighbours and some from Tezpur town were highly impressed with the artworks and appreciated. “They have also started purchasing my works. I am also planning to go online to increase the volume of my selling,” she said.

    Chayanika believed and said, “In terms of career, the present time is quite critical and challenging for the youths of the state. I am hoping to secure a source of earning through my art works besides creating an employment avenue for others too.”

    Presently, she sells her products starting from Rs 300 to 450.      

    Daughter of Lalit Borah of Dah Parvatia, near Tezpur in Sonitpur district, Chayanika is also pursuing a one year diploma course in Physiotherapy at the Asian Institute of Nursing Education, Guwahati.

    She is also preparing for the India Book of Records.
