I am optimistic that by this the artists, teachers and all concerned will be significantly benefited from its findings. Besides this, I am also interested to work with artists to learn the method, technique and the style of the school of your country’s art by which the artists of our country also will be significantly benefited that I hoped and optimized.

    I wish to give classes to the students of concerning dept.(if the authority permits me) to teach the style, method of the Bengol-school of Art which is noteworthy.
    It may be mentioned that our govt. is not in a position to sponsor me to such a study & work due to financial constraints.
