ਮੇਰੀ ਬਹੁਤ ਦੇਰ ਦੀ ਰੀਝ ਸੀ ਗੁਰੂ ਨਾਨਕ ਬਾਰੇ ਪੇਟਿੰਗਜ਼ ਦੀ ਇਕ ਲੜੀ ਪੇਂਟ ਕਰਨ ਦੀ..... ਪਿਛਲੇ ਤਿੰਨ ਮਹੀਨਿਆਂ ਤੋਂ ਇਹ ਕੰਮ ਸ਼ੁਰੂ ਹੋ ਗਿਆ.... ਮਨ ਬਹੁਤ ਪ੍ਰਸੰਨ ਹੈ ਅੱਜ ਕੱਲ..... ਹੁਣ ਤੱਕ ਛੇ ਵੱਡੇ ਫਰੇਮ ਹੋ ਗਏ ਨੇ..... ਮਨ ਹੈ ਤੀਹ ਪੇਂਟਿੰਗਜ਼ ਦੀ ਲੜੀ ਹੋਵੇ..... ਗੁਰੂ ਨਾਨਕ ਦੀ ਜ਼ਿੰਦਗੀ ਤੇ ਬਾਣੀ ਦੇ ਸੁਮੇਲ 'ਚੋਂ....... ਅੱਜ ਜਨਮ ਦਿਹਾੜੇ ਤੇ ਇਹ ਫਰੇਮ ਤੁਹਾਡੇ ਨਾਲ ਸਾਂਝਾ ਕਰਦਿਆਂ ਮਨ ਅਤੀ ਪ੍ਰਸੰਨ ਹੈ...... ਕਬੂਲ ਕਰੋ ਜੀ.....

MANY YEARS BACK ONE EVENING I WAS WALKING IN PAU, SUDDENLY I WITNESSED A WONDERFUL LANE OF TREES FULL OF FIGURES, FEELINGS AND TALKING WITH ME. AT THAT TIME I WAS NOT WITH MY CAMERA.
AFTER THAT EACH TIME I WALKED THROUGH THE LANE I CLICKED MANY MANY PICS. THEN FOR AROUND 3 YEARS I WAS CLICKING THE TREES WHEREVER I TRAVE..

POSTER POEMS ( 1986-1989)
when my Punjab was feeling the heat of extremism, each one was thinking that when and how this phase will come to an end. Artists, writers, theatre-persons all were divided into 2 sections. One was keeping silence and were posing to be more intellectuals and the second section was actively participating against the negative forces. Poets - writers were writing on the issues concerned, Nukkad Natak and theatre shows were organized all over Punjab, Painters were painting the agony of the environment. In this situation i choose my role and started painting poster-poems (Amrita Pritam suggested this name for the form i was creating) in which i painted an image related to the extract of poem on art sheets with poster colors. The range of poets from the galaxy was from Baba Farid to the contemporary poets of my language. I made around 70 frames and it got an enthusiastic response from the viewers in different exhibitions in north zone. After then Gursharn Bha ji asked me if he could take the responsibility of shows, and i happily. He exhibited the show in each of his performance for many years. So this was my part to make the common man aware of the fact that what was happening in our state......
