Hawa Mahal to Charminar: Dharmavaram painter uses pen refills to create replicas; saves environment


Jaipur's historic Hawa Mahal was constructed in four years. Taking a quarter of that time, around 15 months, a mini Hawa Mahal took shape in another corner of the country, Bangalore. But unlike the red and pink sandstones, that were used for the construction of the original Hawa Mahal, the replica was completely made using used pen refills. While architect Lal Chand Utsa was the man behind the original Hawa Mahal, a passionate artist Srinivasulu MR conceptualized the idea of miniature monuments out of used pen refills that were disposed of as trash.
