He found his artistic and spiritual solace in the Himalayas and painted the Himalayan splendours tirelessly .These Mountains fulfilled his visual perception and spiritual awareness. The jagged peaks for him were the point between the earth and the cosmos beyond, a point taking one to a higher journey into the cosmic realm. He did not want to treat the mountains with details that he perceived to be unnecessary and instead was keen on showing its quiet serenity and meditative nature. His fascination for Himalayas made him paint them continuously as if searching for answers to his spiritual quest. He felt that there is a purer world above those peaks that one needed to seek. He painted the peaks of Himalayas at different times of the day and different seasons so as not to miss out on any moment of splendour that mountains have to offer.
