Tabish Aijaz is a young MBBS student from Jammu and Kashmir's Anantnag district studying to be a doctor.
As the MBBS course is exhaustive and involves a lot of studies and examinations, Tabish uses her natural ability to paint to beat the stress caused by exams and the COVID 19 pandemic, in general.
She mostly paints on Chinar (Platanus orientalis) leaves and uploads it on her social media channels. In recent times, Tabish has received a lot of appreciation for her efforts raising awareness about the Kashmiri culture and about the spread of COVID 19.
Tabish, who also uses stones and discarded material to create art, has also exhibited her works at local art exhibitions. As a doctor, she uses her art to highlight the service that doctors, nurses and other health workers are giving to the nation in eradicating the pandemic.
Many applications later, hundreds of people continue to suffer.
Formal applications to get new beds have been sent thrice to the local administration. But the situation hasn't changed.
