The creator of this Universe has bestowed upon us many
many beautiful, immemorable and great things. One of them
is the soul or the life that he has gifted us with. He has
given us all the benefits of Mother Nature's benevolence.
He has made us realize the importance of unity in diversity
by gifting us different regions of the world with varied
cultures, climates, lifestyles, floras and faunas.
God Almighty has blessed me with the ability to observe
and evaluate the different aspects of nature. It's scenic
beauties, its rivers and rivulets, the blue sprawling skies,
the beautiful clouds, trees and landscapes, men and their
cultures, floras and faunas and deep blue seas and many many
different animals and living beings - I observe them, evaluate
them and then I make a note of it in my mind and assess
it with my sensibilities and feel it with the depth of my
heart and then-
I take out my paraphernalia, my brush,
my colours, my canvass and I try to transfer it in a painting.
I get engrossed in my work and I forget everything else.
I communicate only with Nature. I merge my own self in the
realms of mother Nature. There is no difference between
aesthetic and unaesthetic, good or bad. I just go on expressing
myself whatever is endowed in me by way of my observations
- from the depth of my heart and mind.
My philosophical paintings
Apart from painting portraits, landscapes, abstracts, wildlife,
figures, nudes or human forms I as an artist feel it to
be my bounden duty to express my views through my canvass
the happenings around the world whether they are political,
social, religious or economic and educational. I have done
paintings on India's nuclear explosion, Monica-Clinton affair,
Lady Diana's death, Mother Teresa's mission for the uplift
of the down-trodden, personality of the millennium and other
luminaries and eminent persons who have contributed for
betterment of the world in their respective fields.
I am planning to do a series of paintings on AIDS from the
Indian and Hindu mythological perspective.
For all my work I have received accolades and acclaims from
the Head of the Govt. to Head of the State, Foreign Dignitaries,
Chief ministers, Governors and Ministers. I have earned
enough name and fame. But I feel I owe it to the society
to repay it back in my own little capacity by commenting
on happenings around the world through the medium I am well
conversant with i.e. painting.
I would like to be known not just as a master painter of
repute but a philosopher painter who has his own individual
views on events which concern the human society.
I would feel obliged if you give me feedback and your valuable
opinion about me as an artist or painter which would give
me food for thought and energy to work with greater vigor
I only feel that it should be acceptable to all my patrons,
my fans, my critics, my friends and my promoters.
Lastly I leave everything to the judgement of the connoisseurs
of art. If I am able to stir their heart and soul with my
work I feel I am successful in doing my job. I need your
support and warmth and your invaluable opinion.
