Dadu: Two Sindhi brothers, working as sand artists in UAE, have earned the world fame and got their name included in Guinness World Records after painting the world’s largest sand glass scenery in YAS Mall of Abu Dhabi.
At a sand painting art event, Babar and Raja made a glass painting in which UAE’s traditional desert scene was depicted. The sand glass painting shows a camels’ caravan on the way with a tree on one side and a water stream on the other; a mountain and flying birds above it while sky is covered by clouds at the sun setting time.
Speaking to this scribe on telephone from UAE, Babar Soomro told that he along with his four brothers are working as artists since 17 years.
Babar said that he and his brother Raja worked hard day and night and many times during the work they could not sleep at nights.
Babar said that other countries’ artists like Palestine attempted to paint the sand but they all failed to make a record.
Babar expressed joy and was very happy that he had earned fame for the country’s name before world.
Babar and Raja Soomro had painted photos of many celebrities of various countries using the different shades in sand art. The celebrities include Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan, Saudi King Muhammad Suleman, Shaikh Muhammad Bin Suleman, Shaikh Muhammad Bin Rashid, Shaikh Zaid and Shaikh Muhammad bin Zaid.
Babar Soomro pledged that Sindh’s historical heritage like Mohen Jo Daro, Rani Kot Fort, Gorakh Hill Station, Khuda Abad Mosque, Manchhar Lake, Indus River, ruins of Amri, life style of people of Kachho and Thar would be painted with sand inside the glass casing soon.
Family members of artist Babar and Raja Soomro have appealed to Sindh Chief Minister Syed Murad Ali Shah, Prime Minister Imran Khan and Chief of Army Staff General Qamar Javed Bajwa to announce special award for them because the two brothers had brightened country’s name before world.
Meanwhile, neighbors, relatives and friends of Babar and Raja Soomro have expressed best wishes for them for their bright future through messages on social media.
