Young doctor owns record by carving 59 bone names on pencil lead within 13 hrs
Pattambi (Palakkad): A young doctor has proved her talent in pencil carving by writing the names of 59 bones of human body on pencil lead within 13 hours. When the Indian Book of Records 2021 is published, it will include the name Dr Arshiya Shereef Thumbil for her talent in the micro art of pencil carving.
An Ayurvedic doctor by profession, Arshiya was attracted to pencil carving after watching a video on Instagram. Thus she started practicing it since 2019. As she is busy at Shoranur Ayurveda Samajam as a doctor, she spent her leisure time for the micro art. After the lockdown was imposed, she got more time to practice.
Arshiya said that she had to practice for long to learn carving letters on the pencil lead. She used to gift her friends their names carved on pencils. As she is working in the medical sector, Arshiya decided to do something related to her profession and thus she carved the names of bones on pencil lead.
Following this, she emailed the details of the art to the website of India Book of Records and started the work with their permission. She uploaded the video of carving the art on their website. Later, she received a confirmation that she has been granted their recognition.
Daughter of Pattambi Manjalungal native Shereef Thumbil and Rukhiya, Dr Arshiya is also talented in stencil drawing, doodling and calligraphy.
