_________________________________________________________________________

Born on 23rd, October 1943. MOHANKUMAR from his childhood was creative by nature and showed an avid interest in Arts. He reminisces how it all started "In the year 1960 one fine evening my school time chum informed me that in Dadar he has seen A rangoli portrait of Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj made in food grains only. I could not see the rangoli but idea clicked and I decided to make rangoli of Ganesh using food grains during Ganpati days at my residence". Parents being religious minded in spite of geographical and economical constrains agreed immediately. While making the rangoli the need of vibrant colors prompted him to use colored sagos and the Legend of the SAGO RANGOLI OF GANESH was born.

Mohankumar graduated from Bandra School of Arts and he specialized in Interior Designing from J.J.Institute of Applied Art Mumbai, Maharashtra. The visual creative urge in him prompted him to learn Photography from Indo American Society. His photographs and cover designs for books & audio cassettes have won him accolades and prizes

The making of Sago Rangoli - a blend of Art, Culture and Devotion requires over 10,00,000 grains of Sagos, each measuring around 3mm colored in to 250-300 shades using poster colors. Each sago grain is set individually in the chosen design comprising of 200 cm x 250 cm approx. Which requires about 1,300 man-hours, spread over a period of one month in this venture Mohankumar is diligently helped by his friends Dayaram Hindisotta and Bhupesh Joshi, Kamla Ruparel, Archana Palan, Avni Chakraborty. Almost 15,000 visitors and well wishers and art lovers flock each year to admire this creation which includes journalist from news papers TV channels and prestigious publications also.

Mohankumar's selections of pictures are those created by internationally renowned and lege­ndary Artist S.M. Pandit. Apart from the Sago Rangoli, the creativity in Mohankumar made him to explore the form of Lord Ganesh in many unconventional mediums such as Glass, Stone, Wood, Paper, Marble, Acrylic, Metal, Thread, Cloth, Beads, Pearl, Enamel, Electric Wire, Siporex, and Silver - you name it and he has used it. An artist with clear perception and principles, his creation is open to public on Bhadrapad Ekadashi every year. He takes time-off for about a month for the making of Sago Ganesh Rangoli from his busy schedule and contribution, the Government of Maharashtra had appointed him as a Special Executive officer in the year of 1998.

An Artist who respects Mother Nature for her benevolence would naturally dedicate himself for the service of follower. Mohankumar in the capacity of its President has served the Lions Club Of Mulund-Mumbai. Mohankumar was designated as the creative designer by well known Sexologists Padmashree Dr. Prakash Kothari for the First International Conference on Orgasm an exhibition held in 1991 at New Delhi and the Asia pacific conference of Sexology in 2004 at Mumbai wherein his creative contribution was highly acclaimed.
