Q How did you get into painting? It all started when I was a toddler, my paa saw me playing with colours on the floor. He was pretty amazed to see the designs, I had made. As he tells me, he didn’t scold me, yet encouraged me to play with it more. 

Q Do people take you lightly? I don’t think so, it really surprises me when people ask me ‘did you really achieve this feat at 11 months?’

Q Where are all have your paintings been exhibited? Till date, I have had 16 exhibitions in Ujjain, Indore, Bhopal, New Delhi and Pune.

Q What are the colours you mostly use and why?  I like to use crayons, water colours, acrylic, oil colours, frolic, glass and ink colours. 

Q Which is your favourite painting and why? I have created lots of paintings; however one of my best creations is a canvas with a green yellow forest, where lot people are visiting a temple. 

Q What’s the price of your most expensive painting? For me, painting is the best expression. One of my paintings was sold for `18,000.

Q Plans to buy anything?   I love to buy anything which makes me feel special and anything related to art.

Q How has painting helped you in your studies? I have become experimental and expressive. I’m still a bit shy and hence, I’m trying to improve my interaction skills.

Q How do you handle all the PRIZE money? The money, which I get from the exhibitions and paintings, I donate it to an NGO called Rekhankan, Bhopal. With what’s left I  like to buy new colours, canvas and brushes.
