ALWAYS WITH YOU
Shyam is a college student with artistic achievements. He lost his parents when he was a kid. His parents were traditional painters. They invented a new form of painting where they used their palms predominantly. However, gradually digital paintings were becoming popular, and they feared by the time Shyam grows up, traditional painting will become a dead art form. Before their unfortunate death, they could manage to keep a special gift for Shyam with the grandmother – a pack of acrylic color accompanied by a letter – which they wanted her to hand over to Shyam when he turns 21. They wanted to say “Always With You” to Shyam with this small gift. Shyam always misses his parents. He is a digital painter and has no idea about traditional painting. The day he turns 21, he receives the gift. He was amazed to see his fingerprint getting painted on the letter with one of the acrylic paints. He could suddenly correlate that the paintings stacked up in the attic which are forgotten for long, are actually paintings of his parents, using their palms. He is filled with emotion. He pulls one of them and feels surrounded by his parents and their love. He realizes love in the art is more important than the technology used to make them, as technology changes but love remains immortal.
