The students who created this masterpiece are Abhishek Maharana, Adarsh Shandilya, Larib Kamal Khan, Abhay Yadav, Sanidhya Gupta, Arushi Agrawal, and Kritika Jain. 

“String art is made with thread/string, that is threaded around the nail and forms a complex pattern. We decided to commemorate the historic occasion of Prime Minister Narendra Modi's third consecutive swearing-in by creating a portrait," stated Devashish Mishra, the lead artist.

"The impressive portrait, created using the innovative technique of thread art, highlights the artistic talent of our students. This artwork is truly exceptional," remarked the principal, inviting those interested to view the masterpiece on campus this Friday from 9 am to 4 pm.
