The cows of Vrindavan longed to be tended by Krishnaji and would rush to him whenever he played his flute. The Lotus flower are almost synonymous with each other- Lotus flower was so loved by Lord Krishna.

The art of Pichwai originated over 400 years ago, illustrating tales of Shrinathji, an incarnation of Krishna, the deity manifest as a seven-year-old child. Prominent in th Nathadwara region of Rajasthan especially in the Vaishnavite sect, the paintings are hand-painted on cloth or paper and depict different scenes and stills - lotuses, Radha, Gopis and cows are also frequent subjects.

Mohan ji has been painting since the age of 10, and he and his brother learnt from his father who was also a miniature artist. He has now been painting for the last 40 years – he has learnt many genres of miniature art – Mughal and Kangra and has also received many awards in Mughal style of miniature art. He has exhibited at New York, China (7/8 times), Bahrain and many domestic exhibitions. In 2004 he has received the state awards and the National award in 2007.
