Message in NDTV

Paintings by Chennai airport director Dinesh Kumar are attracting art lovers. Many say art creations of this high flying officer inspire them to aim high.

With the Cabinet having cleared the proposal to expand the Chennai airport and construct another greenfield airport you would probably imagine that Kumar would be grounded with work.

On the other hand the official has been able to balance his passion with profession.''If you have the interest in art, you will get time for that. That's what I have done. When others would pass time in a different way I have tried to use it for art,'' said Dinesh Kumar.There were mainly government and airline officials who turned up at the exhibition.''It inspires to think that there is no limit and you can go on and on,'' said a woman visitor.

While the Chennai airport expansion plan is likely to see more protests, the airport director may have to be prepared for more showdowns rather than his one-man show.
