Genesis of Art on Postcard
Khula Aasmaan received several messages from teachers in remote areas who mentioned that their students were keen to participate in Khula Aasmaan art contests but did not have access to the internet. We realised that the postal network is widespread and reaches out to the remotest areas of the country. The idea of "Art on Postcard" was thus born.
