Calligraphy is the writing of alphabets and numerals in a manner so as to beautify and create an artistic appeal to the writing. Modern day definition of calligraphy is said to be, "The art of expressing thoughts with beauty, harmony and peace".
Calligraphy is a visual art and is often referred to as an art of stylish handwriting. This word has been derived from two Greek words - Kallos and Graphos, which mean ‘Beauty’ and 'Writing' respectively. Calligraphy is learnt to enhance one’s creativity, to improve one’s concentration, develop one’s artistic skills and most of all to increase one’s patience.
In the recent past, there have been many new applications of calligraphy in the form of weddings and event invitations, religious art, commissioned calligraphic art, cut stone inscriptions and memorial documents, paintings, maps, and legal documents, ceramics, memorial documents and especially in handmade presentations. It is also used as props and moving images for film and television, testimonials, television images, maps and other work involving written content.
