Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi met specially-abled young Aayush Kundal and lauded him for his paintings.
Calling the moment distinctively unforgettable, Modi said, ” He is a source of inspiration for all of us. To keep on getting continuous inspiration, I will follow him on Twitter.”
The prime minister also appealed to the general public to see Kundal’s paintings. “I request you all to have a look at the painting @aayush_kundal. Aayush has also created a YouTube channel for his paintings, which contains different colours of his life” PM Modi said in a tweet.
At the age of 10, Kundal had joined a school for the physically disabled. He gradually developed an interest in drawing and sketching, but he says when he started adding colour, he could never stop.
In the initial days he experienced difficulty drawing and painting without using his hands but slowly with patience and practice, he perfected the skill of drawing and painting with his legs. Kundal has won the first prize by displaying his paintings in various exhibitions at Indore.
