Amazing Kids : Multi-Talented Meghna Unnikrishnan

Filled with cuteness and good thoughts, her paintings speak its own language of awesomeness and a unique flavour of a kid’s hand behind every drawing. Meghna Unnikrishnan is a budding polymath from Chennai. This 10 year old girl excels in Drawing, Painting, Singing, Writing Poems & Short Stories and of course fond of playing games as well. Behold, she can dance Bharathanatiyam also.

She credits her parents for all her achievement and for being supportive of her in all possible ways. In fact their encouragement is the key to all her talents, she says. She has participated in various competitions of kids and won the recognitions.

We asked about the moment, when she had realized such painting skills in her? “I realized that I can draw well when my LKG teacher, Latha ma’m, told me to draw The National Flag. I drew it and coloured it perfectly and my teacher told my parents that I can draw nicely.” she answered. That Teacher’s little encouragement for a simple flag drawing has done the magic.

Now, Meghna loves to do abstract paintings of God Krishna, nature paintings, birds and animal paintings, still life paintings and much more. You can find a spectrum of genres of paintings on her blog. She has a list of ambitions to become an artist(To create Good paintings), a Bharatanatyam dancer(to dance Bharatanatyam nicely), an architect… And said “Need to decide which one to pursue :)”

What about studies? “Yes, of course I love to study. I get the general proficiency award every year.And I get the special achievement award for drawing every year from my school (The Schram Academy, Chennai). I won a laptop in a national spelling bee contest last year for being the topper.” says Meghna.

Her suggestion for other aspiring kids is “If you think that you can draw well, then go ahead, draw, draw and draw… Browse the internet for artists’ paintings and learn from their techniques. Practice will make you perfect.”

chandramouleeswar-koil-program-2013-8“Things that I miss now are beautiful original scenery, traditional art forms, clean and neat rivers, smoke-free roads and many more things which are damaged by humans. All these things are very rare now which could have made brought out good works by young children and also experienced artists.” she expressed her concern about the environmental issues we face.

She shared her gratitude to her family members, school, teachers, art teacher Mr. Rajendran of Dessin Academy, friends and all other people for encouraging her.

What we have shared here are a few of her works. You can find a lot on her blog www.meghnaunni.com

There is a lesson for all of us, the early we find the talents of kids and the early we encourage them, they will do wonders in the future. Every Teacher and Parents hold the responsibility equally in this aspect. There are many kids out there as talented and as unique as Meghna. Only thing is they need a recognition and a lot of encouragement. The rest is assured, their thirst will take them to reach greater heights.

We Propel Steps, wish Meghna all the best for her ambitions and love to see her excel in her efforts always.
