richness of Madhubani art. Painting has fascinated him since his childhood and you can

“Ghat is series of steps leading down to a water body, and the Ghats of Varanasi are the most
mesmerizing on earth. The auspicious scenario full of magnificent works and activities are the
creations of human. And in more common term Ghats are known for their pandits, pandas etc.”
Sachindra Nath’s works are based on the river Ganga and all that happens around the
river that includes the flowers, pujas and ceremonies. He loves to use vibrant colours like
green, blue, violet and red! His fondness for colours started when he was a child, as he

has created his unique space in this area.
