The Election Commission of India (ECI) took another innovative way under Systematic Voters’ education and Electoral Participation (SVEEP) activities in the form of Sand Art at Rajaduwar Ghat in Guwahati to generate electoral awareness among voters.
A large size sand art was made near the bank of Brahmaputra by five artists–Pavan Das, Subhash Medhi, Jayanta Hazarika, Bidyut Nath and Himangshu Sarma.
These artists started working on it since Sunday midnight and completed it around 3:30 pm on Monday.
This also marked the beauty of colours on this day of the Holi festival and this creative initiative is an attempt to celebrate the colours of our democratic rights, said ECI in a statement.
The artwork depicts a man, a woman and a voters’ finger which symbolizes voter participation from all sections of the society and is a humble attempt to make voters aware of the importance of voting rights and make them participate in the ongoing festival of democracy.
The 800 sq ft sized sand art was opened for the public on Monday afternoon.
