Myself Dinesh Baukhandi, I was born in Aug 1953, in Saur village of Uttrakhand. My qualification is DME (mechanical). My father late Shambhu Prasad Baukhandi senior artist in Archealogical Survey of India worked in National Muesum New Delhi was transfered to Ajanta Caves where he worked for more than 30 years. His reproduction of Ajanta Paintings are in display in National Muesum. After my father’s death in 1992 the canvas,paints and brushes inspired me to take on my fathers work. I grew up watching his style of work and myself painted outlines for him. I started painting as a hobby and since 18 years I have been working on Ajanta paintings.
