I set off for Chandigarh from Calcutta with nothing but a strong belief in myself. The positive and driveful attitude of the people of Chandigarh encouraged me to translate my dreams into reality. I tried really hard but couldn’t get any positive replies but I did not give up and finally my journey started with just two students. The main objective of opening this school was to bring out the passion in the people so that they can do excel in their art field. After I got married to , Mrs. Parveen Sinha (Director of Chhaya School Of Art) my school flourished. I am really happy that I could finally fulfill my dream and made people realize that art could b taken as a profession too. I couldn’t do this without my family’s support and I am really thankful to them as well.
Parveen Sinha (Director) added that everyone cannot become doctor or engineer. Everyone have different qualities, dreams, passion etc. One thing that we all have common in us is that we all are different and this world needs artists, designers, innovators, etc to make the world beautiful.
