Collecting data of 930 women personalities with their images is itself a huge task & painting them in miniature style in background is another. Apart from this he has painted LATA letters also & Lataji’s portrait in foreground. In another painting he has painted all felicitations of Lataji by famous personalities happened in her entire life at background & Lataji in foreground.
While painting Gandhiji in same way, he has painted 230 patriots of Gandhi’s contemporaries at background & Gandhiji in foreground, trying to depict that Gandhiji was main source of inspiration for them. Here also collecting data of 230 patriots & their images is difficult task & painting them is another. He has painted all his paintings in oil on canvas medium with skill & commendable patience. There are many paintings on Lataji hence this show is titled “चित्रलतिका “. Apart from Lataji & Gandhiji artist has painted other subjects also like Lord Ganesha, Lord Hanuman, Lord Ram-Seeta, Lord Buddha, Mother Teresa, little girls & others.
