Warangal Urban: Srijith Thatikonda, a teenager from Gopalpur in Hanamkonda, has been getting accolades for his creative miniature art work, particularly on the tips of pencils.

For Independence Day, the 16-year-old boy created a 3mm high national flag on a pencil tip besides carving out a 2mm high national tricolor on a rice grain. “While creating the national flag on the pencil tip took one hour, the flag on the rice grain took 45 minutes,” Srijith told Telangana Today. He has scripted his name in the ‘Credence Book of World Records’  in June, 2020, for his miniature art work.

Inspired by his maternal uncle Raju Muthoju, who is also a miniature artist and goldsmith, Srijith took up miniature art work in 2015. Srijith is now pursuing second year diploma in polytechnic at the VMR Polytechnic College, Rampur. He also created several miniature sculptures on pieces of chalk, besides creating a miniature of a man holding his child on the tip of a pencil on the occasion of ‘Father’s Day.’

Not to be left behind, Srijith’s sister Srija, who is in B Tech second year in Jayamukhi College of Engineering, Narsampet, has written the national anthem on 51 rice grains. She says she completed the task in an hour. Srijith’s father Srinivasulu is a carpenter-cum-interior designer.
