Inspired by the traditions and culture of the ancient Sikh warrior, I started my collection near enough a decade ago, which has now organically evolved into Deccan Arts (previously known as Shastardhari.com); an online platform dedicated to the subject of antique Indian arms & armour and a place where I can present and share my passion with fellow enthusiasts and the connoisseur.

I have worked with both private collectors and museums alike in the areas of curation, acquisition, cataloguing, display, restoration and conservation. Through this medium I hope to build long term relationships based on integrity and mutual trust with both private and institutional clients across the globe, helping them connect with significant artefacts that will enhance their prized collections.
