This award was given to me when I was pursing my Ph.D. first year. It was very helpful me to be more articulate by photography and travelling to Tanjore and Mamallapuram to meet many sculptors. My documentation is first work with detail work on bronze technology through theoretical and practical aspects. This award is very helpful to also practise the bronze image making by myself, with the help of practices knowledge I could understand the complete technology of bronze image making.

It was first step which helpful to study and understand the bronze technology and this first step develops interest in this subject so now I could give lectures and workshop on bronze technology to different universities and schools.


My two papers on bronze technology in press and now I writing a paper on Harappan bronze technology.
