"I was born in a family of farmers in Baghpat, but brought up and educated in Delhi where my father was a teacher. No-one appreciated the Arts in my family, as everyone had science backgrounds and initially I was a student of economics. But I left the college after one year and entered the College of Art in Delhi in 1990 where I met my guru, Prof. Biman B Das, who is the real force behind my entire journey to date. My favourite media are stone and bronze and I love to work on mythological themes.
Art has always brought about changes in my life and personality. I feel I am more emotional, empathetic, helpful and thoughtful because of it. I aspire to become like my Guru, he was the perfect teacher, great scultptor and a beautiful person."
