Talking to Orissa POST, Asish Parida, a student of the college, said he has painted Lord Buddha using acrylic. The theme of the portrait is “Living in peace”. By showing Buddha as a perfect example of silence he wanted to say that there is a lot of violence in the world which needed peace, he said.
