WORK DONE: I have tried to solve this with some scene text detection algorithms like EAST Text detector and PixelLink. But it only provides result in such a way it detects each and every word individually as below, which is obvious:
What method can help me detect blocks of texts as mentioned under GOAL.
I don't want extract all texts via OCR. What I want instead is to detect texts based on their visual positional arrangement. See in the image, texts positioned together are detected as blocks. And my result should contain all the bounding box co-ordinates of all the detected text blocks.
