Mahabharata in Ascii Art

Ascii Art is a graphic design uses characters on a computer keyboard to create images. Important characters in the Mahabharata and some of the important scenes in the epic have been created using Ascii Art by Koshy George. Express Buzz reports “It is a challenge. But it makes you very happy when you finish something. It is that mysterious feeling that, ‘hey, there is a beautiful ascii rendition of a scene from Mahabharata lurking in an empty document in your word-processor. You just need to put the appropriate symbols at the appropriate places, and tada, the ascii art comes to life.’ That drives me,’’ Koshy George says. You can find more about Mahabharata in Ascii Art here at website of Koshy George. You may also like to read Mahabharata on Twitter

Rabindranath Tagore – Words of Inspiration

I have become my own version of an optimist. If I can’t make it through one door, I will go through another door – or I will make a door. Something terrific will come no matter how dark the present. We come nearest to the great when we are great in humility. The burden of the self is lightened with a laugh at myself. You can’t cross the sea merely by standing and staring at the water. Don’t let yourself indulge in vain wishes.
Rabindranath Tagore
