‘Krishna Pankhi’: PM Modi’s gifts to Fumio Kishida
Prime Minister Narendra Modi gifted his Japanese counterpart Fumio Kishida, a ‘Krishna Pankhi’, a sandalwood artefact made in Rajasthan by the Jangid Family (Malji Arts) with intricate work with its windows depicting different poses of Lord Krishna, epitomising love, compassion and tenderness.
The intricate carving on the sandalwood is done with precision by National Awarded Jangid Family, who carve the already impressive sandalwood artefact into a beautiful and elegant masterpiece of art.
Sh. Malji Kalakar
Sh. Malchand Ji Kalakar(National Award Winner- 1971) was an artist par excellence who was self-taught in the art of miniature carving on sandalwood. He had once told his children that he had seen a dream where God asked him to do miniature carvings to earn a living. He lived up to the dream and soon sat down to work. People in the sleepy town of Churu disregarded his words as that of a maverick. Soon afterwards, when his exquisite carving was ready, it caught the attention of a local businessman. Such was the impact of his skill on the businessman that MALJI was told that whatever he made would be bought by him. In the 1950s, for the first piece that he sold to the Nahta family, he got a princely (in those days) sum of ₹20 for his effort.
