I named my piano "Basant Utsav"(Spring Festival). The Art style is based on a folk art coming from North India, called Kangda style. I showed a woman playing drums, a symbol of celebration of Spring with dance and music, surrounded by beautiful bushes with lots of flowers and some ancient castles. Two swans are also painted as the symbol of romanticism, enjoying the weather in a pond with the bloom of water lilies. I believe I am adding more beauty to the world with my creation/ by painting this piano. Wherever it will go, people will be able to feel the beauty and freshness of spring, even if their days have been cloudy. I have already heard other artists saying that, "I feel like going on those hills. I love your fantasy world" That's a great compliment and that is what I wanted to achieve, a smile on everyone's face and happiness in their hearts. I love to see the shine in others eyes after seeing this piano. This piano project has been the best project of my life so far.
