Following a childhood illness that left him with impaired vision and kept he joined the school founded by Rabindranath Tagore at Santiniketan. Two years later he enrolled as one of its first students at Kala Bhavan, the art school. Under the influence of Rabindranath`s progressive ideas, Kala Bhavan became the nucleus of an art movement that explored the entire gamut of creativity from personal ,to public and functional art.
