Kashmiri girl working towards preserving Calligraphy art

Due to modern technology the age old traditional of Calligraphy art in Kashmir is dying and in order to preserve this, a Kashmiri girl Saima is taking keen interest to preserve the ages-old traditional Kashmiri art.

Saima, who originally hails from Anantnag district of Kashmir valley, is presently living in Srinagar Raj Bagh area.

Since childhood, Saima wanted to do something in Urdu Calligraphy art and in order to achieve her goal, she did a three years degree course in Urdu calligraphy from Academy of Art, Culture and Languages, a government institute in Srinagar.

Calligraphy, which is known as "Khattati" in Persian and "Khusnavisi" in Urdu, is popular all over the world especially in Islamic countries.

The art of calligraphy was so popular in Kashmir valley but lost its popularity with time.
