Cosmo: Tell us about your hobby. Priyanka Gu­sain: “I paint huge can­vas ab­stract paint­ings and land­scapes.” C: How did you start? PG: “When I was five, my teacher gave me home­work to colour a few fruits in my colour­ing book. I asked my sis­ter for help be­cause I couldn’t paint at that time. But my mother saw me and en­cour­aged me to do it my­self. She used to ap­pre­ci­ate even my worst paint­ing and col­lect each one for her col­lec­tion. She got me paint­ing books, crayons, paints, brushes...ev­ery­thing. That’s how my jour­ney be­gan.” C: How do you take out time for your hobby? PG: “Paint­ing for me is like a stress buster. I paint when I feel anx­ious, when I feel sad and when I feel happy. It’s like it is manda­tory in my life to paint when I am feel­ing things I can’t oth­er­wise share with the world. I like to speak through my paint­ings.” C: What’s the coolest thing about your hobby? PG: “The coolest thing is that I’m get­ting fea­tured in one of the best mag­a­zines of the coun­try and get­ting fa­mous for what I love to do!” C: Tell us about your favourite ‘hobby mem­ory’? PG: “I got through my col­lege ad­mis­sion, in the course I wanted, by ap­ply­ing through Ex­tra Cur­ric­u­lar Ac­tiv­i­ties quota, by paint­ing.” C: How has paint­ing changed your life? M: “It has changed me in many ways. Paint­ing has built my per­son­al­ity and I love to ac­knowl­edge that when­ever I feel low about my­self, I just look at my col­lec­tion to see how tal­ented I am and just start paint­ing again.”
