The term ‘Art’ itself is versatile. It has a kind of romance of sensitivity and creation. Art is a weapon to fight against the unseen. It is a kind of harp that plays the tone of thoughts and feelings mingled with colour. Since ancient times, art has been evolving with different forms. Though it does not have any consistent forms, it is praised by millions of people across the world. The purpose of art may vary from person to person; the situation to situation. But its sole purpose is an expression of thoughts.
