Since childhood, I have an inclination towards devotional and art-related activities/Various art forms, but at the age of 3 due to high fever lost both my legs. I wasn’t discouraged with this crisis in my life and finished my Masters in fine arts(Painting) from Saket Mahavidyalaya, Later on, started teaching differently-abled kids at Mand Buddhi Mook-Badhir Vidyalaya Ayodhya Painting and dance through the medium of sign language.
Under the aegis of Shri Mahesh Yogi Ji made Golden book world record of 1050 folk art paintings, it’s my biggest accomplishment in the field of Painting till now. Along with this I have also won many awards in the field of dance on many TV shows like Mera Bhi Naam Hoga, Mahadev Mahotsav by Life OK Entertainment channel, Jhoom India Jhoom, DID till Round 2.
I have never considered my disability as my shortcoming rather it has always given me power and different perspective to look at this World and its people. To help people like me I have established an Organisation “Vadi Viklang Seva Sansthan” and teach them painting, dance, computer, etc. and also encourage them to participate in various cultural activities to make them self-reliant. For this work received recognitions like “Apne Shahar ki shan” award from Life OK Entertainment channel, “Satyapath Veerangana Samman”, “Faizabad Shri Samman”, “Viklang Shakti Samman” etc.
During this time of the pandemic, I remain confined within my house but with the announcement of the construction of Ram temple, I started making paintings related to Lord Ram in a hope of getting this situation better soon and through my paintings, I pray for happiness and good health of humankind.
