Myself Lakhi Chand Jain…I am an Illustrator, conceptual designer, former Sr. faculty (fashion design), travel writer, scholar and mandanagrapher from the soil of culture, art and creativity unending… that’s India. I hail from the Pahur, a tiny village nestled on the bank of the Waghur River, which starts as a tiny stream from the Ajanta Mountains (Ajanta caves). The region surrounding of Pahur is known as an ‘East Khandesh’ in Maharashtra, India and still lives in Kalwa, near financial capital of Republic of India “Bombay”… Mumbai… Maai Mumbai माय मुंबई… Maajhi Mumbai माझी मुंबई… My Mumbai! Conceptualizing, creating and illustrating the designs to the all types of spaces and surfaces is my endeavor… making people learn about art and designing is my passion… and I find peace of mind through each n every creation, innovation and simple things of joy in the travels of life.
