    When I was in class VII, I went to the library and saw a bee embedded in an amber stone. My curiosity knew no bounds and I ran to my teacher who explained the whole process to me wherein I understood that it was a natural process. That’s it…I wanted to explore this exciting arena. At that moment it became my die hard ambition to launch a Gemological Institute in India as I realised that out here people were completely ignorant about this subject.”

This was no easy task as all over our country karigars are used to doing the traditional gold, the oxidized silver or the wax casts. I fit in none of the above. So it was a lot of trial and error. But now I am very happy with my team!”
