Indian Miniature artistes have been known for creating marvels of Art on themes largely related to historical or mythological characters since ages. Gajendra Suryakant Wadhonkar of Aurangabad uses this captivating Art form to promote brotherhood and respect for different religions. Born at Hazur Sahib in Nanded (Maharashtra) in 1978, Gajendra does Scribbling & Painting on Grains of Rice, Sesame and Mustard.

Now, lately he has started writing Shirdi Sai Baba's complete "Shri Sai Satcharitra" on Grains of Rice. Originally, he had planned to write this 3 years back but it was only now during his trip to Shirdi recently, that he felt inspired and blessed by Baba to go ahead and scribble the entire holy text on Grains of Rice. Around 30 lakhs of individual Rice Grains will be needed to scribble the complete 725 pages of "Shri Sai Satcharitra" for which Gajendra will have to put in around 7 to 8 hours of work per day to complete the entire book. He also aims to get his name registered in the Guinness Book of World Records & the Limca Book of World Records for his achievement.

Gajendra said that it all began almost nine years ago when he was helping with the household chores in the kitchen. He just picked up a Grain of Rice and scribbled his Mother's name on it. He started writing with bristled-paint brush and soon he felt drawn to this style after writing names of his Father & Goddess too, on Rice. His Family members and friends appreciated it and exhorted him to pursue it.


It was after practicing for a long time that he then started making portraits and symbols of Hindu, Muslim, Sikh and Christians on Rice Grains. While writing on a Grain of Rice is not unheard of, Mr. Wadhonkar claims that he can write up to 260 alphabets on a single Grain of Rice, 75 on a Sesame seed and up to 25 on a Mustard seed. Zero number brush, after certain alterations, is his tool. He does not use magnifying glass to scribble words on Rice Grains.

Inspired from the tercentenary celebrations of Gurta Gaddi, commemorated at Nanded on the occasion of 300th year of the consecration of Guru Granth Sahib, Gajendra decided to offer something distinct to the Gurdwara and so scribbled the entire Guru Granth Sahib & Sukhmani Sahib (Holy Book of Sikhs containing the hymns of the Sikh Gurus) on the Grains. Apart from painting the Golden Temple, he also painted all the Sikh Gurus on the Grains within three months time and presented at the Golden Temple at Amritsar.

He has made paintings of Lok Manya Tilak, Subhash Chandra Bose, Prime Minister Manmohan Singh & other political / religious leaders,
and has also written the Preamble of the Indian Constitution and the National Anthem of India on Rice Grains.
