Sudarsan has won People's Choice prize at the 1st Moscow International Sand Sculpture Championship held in Russia.
Sudarsan has created 15 feet high Hindu god Ganesh to create awareness among the people on the potential dangers of global warming at the International Sand Championship.
The top of the sculpture depicted the melting of glaciers in the Himalayas and in the flowing water Lord Ganesh is travelling on a boat with a sign 'Divine Concern on Global Warming'. This was to educate people through his art about the effects of Global Warming.

His sand sculpture on Black Taj Mahal earned him accolades all over the world. He actively takes part in social events through his sand art, giving tribute to the cause in his own way.
