I am into growing and propagating cacti & other succulent plants and am into this hobby for the past over two decades. I am the President of National Cactus & Succulent Society of India for the past over ten years. With my love for growing cactus beyond pots, I have created a Cactus and Succulent Garden at the Army Training Command, Annadale, Shimla, in 2006. The only of its type Solo Exhibition on Cacti, Bonsai, Wood Sculptures and Single-Stroke Avian Sketches was held at Punjab Kala Bhawan, Chandigarh, in 2013.
I am the President of Bonsai Society, Chandigarh and I have been one of the pioneers in generating awareness about the creation of bonsai in the region by conducting classes through lectures coupled with demonstrations. My Solo Exhibition of bonsai held in July 2011 at Punjab Kala Bhawan, Chandigarh was a step further in this direction.
I do wood sculpting and I have a collection of 50 sculptures. A Solo Exhibition of wooden sculptures created by me was held at Punjab Kala Bhawan, Chandigarh in August 2011.
I am into writing articles and I am a columnist with ‘The Tribune’, the leading newspaper of North India and contribute articles on cacti, bonsai and other gardening disciplines. My articles on cacti and other succulents have also been published in The International Journal of ‘Plant Reproductive Biology’.
