Hafsa Tanveer, a 10-year-old self-taught artist from South Kashmir’s Anantnag district, is pursuing her dream to revive Calligraphy Art.

Hafsa Tanveer, who practices calligraphy in all languages, says her hobby has deepened over the past few years. “My calligraphy looks more like a painting. My classmates find it very attractive. It is difficult and time-consuming to create calligraphy with painting brushes. It requires patience and focus,” she said.

Hafsa Tanveer, daughter of Tanveer Ahmad Thakur, a 6th Standard Student at Scholars Scientific, hails from DC Colony Mominabad, Anantnag District, says calligraphy is the most intimate, private, and spontaneous form of expression, and it’s unique for every person. She wants to pursue this art along with her studies. She was impressed when she saw the calligraphy of Aflah Altaf, an 8th standard student of the same institute, and remains busy with art, Hafsa said.

“Calligraphy is an art,” she says. “It’s not just writing. Artists have their own unique brush strokes slanted in different ways that people recognize as being from that particular individual.”*

“Islamic calligraphy is time-consuming, which is why it is different and requires proper focus as well, unlike others. It costs a lot of energy and is stationary. But I still love to do it. My parents, uncle, and sister encourage me, and it gives me more strength to further pursue it,” said Hafsa Tanveer.

“Hafsa has a thirst to learn everything about calligraphy. She is passionate about her work. That is what brings sharpness to her writing,” she added.

In a message to the youth of Jammu and Kashmir, the budding calligrapher asked them to explore their talents.

She said youth should pursue their careers with zeal.
