Cows are a symbol of the divine bounty of earth. They are considered a sacred animal in Hinduism as it provides us with life sustaining milk.
Sanjhi is the ancient art of paper stenciling practiced across Mathura and Vrindavan. Craftsmen use specially designed scissors for this artform. The term Sanjhi is derived from the Hindi word sandhya, the period of dusk with which the art form is typically associated.

His family has won State and National Awards for Sanjhi work and he being just 20 years old has applied for a State Award category.
