Pranav was lost in the world of colours.
It never mattered to him that the light that shone through the windows landed on his bed in a hospital.
He wasn’t at home or in school where he should have been but for Pranav life was just a journey, and he made the best out of it.
With his soulful smile bright face and gummy teeth he made people fall for him. Literally
He was the darling of the ward and everyone loved him
They had to when they looked at his paintings
His deft brush brought alive his creations,
The brilliant kathakali face which gazed at one benevolently with intricate details in the crown and a sagely beard.
The idol of Vadakkunnathan temple of Thrissur deified in fine detail,
The joyous Santa Claus,
The mischievous Mickey mouse,
The languid scenery,
Or our national flag in all its glory.
Pranav was like Midas and whatever he touched was like Gold
His art was full of life
Every creation of his was as full of cheer as he was.
He kept churning them as fast as he could
He had been doing this as a toddler at two years when the first picture he coloured a potatoes was picture perfect with not a bit of colour outside the border,
He could write all alphabets and numbers unto twenty by then with ease .
He was great in studies too, a bright student of Paramekkavu Vidya Mandir in Thrissur .his paintings have been regularly exhibited in school
He was the darling of his friends and family as he was a pleasing and likeable boy smiling all the time.
His ideas come from everything he observed with his bright eyes.
His dreams were full of creativity
His passion of painting made him forget the pain of long treatments and hospital beds
His talent delighted all.
The doctors and nurses crowded around him everyday to see his latest production.
He would chat and laugh and smile with them
Pranav is not only a bright boy, and a prodigious painter but he is also a wonderful teacher
With the way he lives his life and faces the odds he teaches us all a lot.
Good luck to you dear Pranav.

My heart swelled when i looked at this boys picture, and I looked for some time. His face, the cheer and the hope in them eyes..

I hope all goes well for him and he recovers. I wish him the very best! What are you doing? bone marrow transplant & chemo? I am no doctor, but medicine interests me - dad was a doc...and my 2nd son aspires to be one!!
