A ONE-HOUR session on ‘Modern Calligraphy and Different Styles of Handwriting’ was conducted here during HT-PACE Kalakriti Summer Camp. The students had an enriching interactive session with senior computer calligrapher of the MP Urdu Academy, Azam Husain.

Talking about calligraphy, Husain said that each letter in every script known to humankind holds an eternal power, an individual beauty in its vertical, horizontal, angular lines, in their continuity. He said that he has made efforts to bring forth calligraphy not only as art form but a expressive medium where letters in all their nakedness become alive, vibrating, pulsating with its inherent, shape, giving a canvas space to your thoughts, a meaning to the sounds & actions.

To the question whether calligraphy added any advantage to personality, Husain said, “Talent in calligraphy is an added creative advantage in your personality.” To another query as to how can one make career in the field , Husain said,

“Anybody with a flexible hand and mind can take up teaching calligraphy as a part-time career at home”. Simultaneously, the students are also undergoing training session in Yoga under the guidance of Pushpendra Soni, and theatre & music under the guidance of Balendra Singh.
