"Born and brought up in the culturally rich, World’s largest inhabited riverine Island and hub of Neo-Vaishnavite culture: Majuli; I was always inclined towards the rich culture of ours. My love for Art and Craft since childhood comes from this beautiful environment of handicrafts and ethnic tradition. During my school days, I used to paint for the walls of the school and school art gallery. After completing my higher studies, I got busy in my professional life and then after marriage, I was almost out of touch with my hobby.
It was after many years when life threw a difficult situation, I found solace in my old hobby. I was pleasantly surprised how therapeutic this hobby turned out to be. This is how I explored my passion for Art and Craft once again. And the concept of ‘KalaEva’ emerged out of my daily Art and Craft therapy. ‘KalaEva’ is a Sanskrit word ‘Kala’ meaning ‘Art' and ‘Eva’ meaning 'put emphasise on Art'.
My work basically comprises of Hand Painted wall Decor depicting rich traditional designs of the North-Eastern Indian culture, classical and folk dances in puppetry form, Mandala Art, Warli Art and many more."
