In a different time and on a different scale, Sushil Bhasin underwent a similar experience while taking a stroll along the Ganges at Haridwar. In the pebbles on the river bank he saw a possibility that millions of others never thought of.The pebbles could be a canvas for paintings and slogans. In two years since Bhasin started ‘pebble art’, it has acquired a profitable niche for itself. So much so that he is close to finalising a deal with Starbucks to sell his works through the coffee chain. Bhasin saw an art form in what others saw as pebbles.
