Just when the entire country is praying for the Siachen braveheart to recover, our famous sand artist, Sudarsan Pattnaik, is also praying for Lance Naik in his own way, by creating a beautiful sand sculpture of the brave soldier with the good wish of “Get Well Soon.”
Sudarsan Pattnaik is famous for his huge and beautiful sand sculptures. Recently, on Christmas, his Santa Claus sculpture got a place in the Limca Book of Records as the world's largest sand sculpture.
Congress President Sonia Gandhi and Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal have both wished the brave soldier a speedy recovery.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi and President Pranab Mukherjee lauded the “indomitable spirit” of the soldier who survived for 6 days under the snow despite the extreme conditions in Siachen.
People have also come forward to donate their organs to Lance Naik.
The entire nation is praying for his recovery and this gesture by our artist, Sudarsan Pattnaik, has left all of us moist-eyed but at the same time, hopeful, that the soldier recovers and the entire nation’s prayers come true.
