Hutansh Verma- Till date I have delivered 64 portraits of our Immortal HeroesTill date I have delivered 64 portraits of our Immortal Heroes

‘Its been almost 6 years since I’m making the portraits to honour our ‘Defence Heroes’. I personally handover the portraits to their families.
The creative process of 24-40 hours includes selecting photographs to create the portraits and is heart wrenching.

This endeavour was my father’s suggestion. The first portrait I made was of Captain Vijayant Thapar, after I did my research on the Kargil War (1999). When my father saw it, he asked me to get in touch with his family. And when I did, his family told me that it was like seeing their son in person. Later, I contacted the Army Headquarter, who wanted me to come in September, however, my visit got postponed to October. Unfortunately, during that period, I lost my father.

After viewing my portraits, I got a call from the Army Headquarters as some of my portraits were displayed at the Manek Shaw Centre on Army Day. Whenever I make a portrait I feel connected to the soul of the soldier till the time I deliver it to his respected family. I never charge for any portrait. I travel all the way to their place.

Till date I have delivered 64 portraits of our Immortal Heroes from Kashmir to Kanyakumari and from Nagaland to Gujrat. The Indian Army has been a pillar of support for me. Indian Army Chief General Bipin Rawat recognised me as well, he saw me and said, ‘You must be Hutansh’. I couldn’t be more proud and honoured.’ said Hutansh Verma
