Ahshaas Hussain – The Blooming Magic!
“And above all, watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places. Those who don’t believe in magic will never find it.” — Roald Dahl, The Minpins.
The above quote by Roald Dahl is so true. Magic happens to those who believe in it. Ahshaas Hussain, a 25 year old guy from Sambalpur, Odisha is a personification of magic. Once, a kid asked him whether he believes in magic or not. He replied, “I believe each and every person has magic in them. And its up to them how much of fairy dust they sprinkle on the souls they come across.
Life has been very tough and challenging at times, but Ahshaas has always risen from his ashes (pain and suffering) just like the Phoenix (a mythological bird) who is reborn from his own ashes. He is a true warrior and survivor in the battlefield of life. He believes in the motto “Bloom For Yourself”.
Ahshaas is an ardent lover of Literature since childhood and he is currently pursuing his M.A from Gangadhar Meher University, Sambalpur, Odisha. He is a Gold Medalist in English Honors (B.A) and also a National level swimmer. He has also completed his Diploma in Arts and Crafts from Lalit Kala Academy, Bhubaneswar.
He is also a Kathak dancer, a classical singer and a teacher. According to him, teaching is not just a money-lending profession but more of a revolution. He believes that right education has the power to transform and evolve humans. He has received the title of the Most Deserving Awardee for Best Teacher of the year 2021.
Ahshaas is a published author of the book “Bloom For Yourself” and has co-authored in 100+ anthologies. He has also compiled more than 10+ anthologies till date.
