His work, which arguably defied established art historical categories and inspired a contemporary school of indigenous painting, continues to attract admirers within India and abroad.....
Pukka Indian

Design in India is not entirely determined by the aesthetic appeal of the object, but by the significance of the object in everyday life, and is often influenced by its users.

Pukka Indian or Purely Indian brings together hundred objects t....

Dining With The Nawabs
Mughal emperors governed their vast empire with the help of nawabs – a title they bestowed on semiautonomous Muslim rulers of princely India.
