I am into painting since my childhood, as painting had been my only hobby, my teachers wanted me to take it further by joining fine art college at Kolkata. However, my parents wanted me to join the armed forces as an officer since my father was in the armed forces prior independence and during that time he was a driver to a British officer and my grandfather a post master at Karachi who knew& saw many the British officers in uniform. After joining the Navy my passion continued, as a result I was known for paintings more than my profession. My paintings were given as gifts to VVIPs including the President of India. I had been working in the corporate after taking a premature retirement from the Navy. Presently into painting again with a passion to create something unique, which can change the thought process of the viewers, its conception and perception. The abstract themes on Human Bonding is one it.
