He was very busy with his practice schedules and participating in different tournaments throughout India. Due to his compact schedule it became impossible to keep in touch with the fine arts for a long period (1987â€“1996). But, he was not a trespasser in the art world as he managed his off time like a dredge for keep in touch with the fine arts world and generated his own style of paintings. The injury on his left knee appeared like a blazing of god on him and which turned a hockey player to an artist again â€¦.as man cannot deny his destiny.
