Udepu Rajinikanth, a micro-artist by passion and a teacher by profession, believes that art is an integral part of life. He considers his existence incomplete without the beauty of art. Despite his dedication to teaching, Rajinikanth never forgets his artistic inclinations and incorporates them into his profession.
