Cuttack: Class V student of Stewart School Harshil Agarwal might seem like an ordinary kid but his feats have proved that he is anything but extraordinary. He painted a unique painting with a social message each day from March 22 till May 3 and registered three records at such a young age. The World Book of Records even accorded him the title of ‘Silent Corona Warrior’ for his efforts.
Tiny Harshil resides with his businessman father Sanjay Agarwal and homemaker mother Rinki Agarwal near Sangam Cinema hall in Cuttack city.
When the lockdown was announced on March 22, just like other kids his age, Harshil too was restless and clueless regarding what to do while at home. Since he was always good at painting his parents encouraged him to paint with a positive social message, share Sanjay and Rinki with OMMCOM NEWS.
Getting their support, Harshil began painting with one unique message each day. And his parents began posting them on social media to showcase his talent.
Soon they all went viral and the Agarwal family was contacted by Exclusive World Record followed by India Book of Record and World Book of Records.
Harshil started drawing from March 22 to May 3, till the end of Lockdown 2.0, spreading a positive message through his art related to COVID-19, lockdown and social distancing at the young age of 9 years and 5 months (as of May 6).
His parents have also applied for the Guinness Book of World Records and await a reply.
Sanjay and Rinki shared their pride on Harshil’s achievements and Harshil too wishes to continue the same in future.
