"I have always been fascinated by our country's rich cultural diversity. And the beautiful craft work of different states brought me closer to my dream, which is to promote the craftwork of India.

"I was born in the city of joy – Calcutta – now known as Kolkata. My family soon shifted to New Delhi where I did my schooling and college. I grew up in a family where culture and tradition were of great importance.

"My family has been involved in social activities for a long time now. We have also been involved in charitable works for the aged, for underprivileged children, and medical institutions assisting the poor. All my life I was taught to have a sense of generosity toward the less fortunate and to offer a helping hand to needy. Apart from my active involvement in these activities, I was very keen on art and culture.

"Each state in India has a unique beauty and this is very much depicted in their handicrafts. My interest in India's crafts led me to earn a diploma in export management. With this in hand, I began coordinating sales for several artisans from different parts of the country. During this time, I noticed a lot of artisans who were such experts in their fields but who had not been able to market their products because they did not have the source. This strengthened my resolve to assist them in exporting.

"Initially, I got in touch with the artisans from different places who were involved in different craft forms. Little by little, I organized a small group of artisans working in different materials and styles, and this is when my journey into the realm of handicrafts really began. It is so beautiful to be able to achieve your goal and do what you want in life.

"Currently, I have some 15 to 20 artisans working with me in stone, wood, metal art and small gift items. Together, we make beautiful pieces for the world to see and appreciate."

"Gorgeous, tasteful, but with bling"

The review title kind of says it all; except what wonderful craftsmanship and artistry Dinesh brings to these amazing decorations. You will probably see that I have many, many positive reviews of Dineshs art and thats because I have purchased so many. I highly recommend Dinesh and his artwork and intend to continue to purchase his work for myself and for gifts. Many thanks Dinesh and Novica!
