I met Governor in 2005 at Raj Bhavan and expressed my willingness to do his portrait and he responded gracefully. I felt honored when he visited my studio to see my work responding to my invitation in 2006. Moreover, he invited me to do a portrait of Sri. APJ Abdul Kalam which you see next. I'm deeply grateful for the interest he showed in my work as a portrait artist. In his death (14/01/2017) I felt a personal loss.
