Our present build on our history our history save in form of cultural elements like, folk art, classical architectural structures, literature of history and some more elements of culture.

We know in our world each one city have a special identity with cultural element. In this format my city Bikaner also have a special cultural identity . that is HAVELI. (The Historical House of Bikaneri people’s).
You can say Bikaneri Havelies are art installation by red sand Stone, when Bikaner was founded in that time many business families, mostly Rampuriya Families (Jain Community) founded Havelies in Bikaner. They founded a complete colony of Rampuriya community in Bikaner, today we are calling to that colony of Rampuriya.
I am remember to late Advocate Sir Updhyan chand Kochar (Director of Marudhar Heritage Hotel Bikianer ). He wrote a book on our Bikaneri Havelies. He gave title to his book HAJAR HAVELIYON KA SHAHAR BIKANER .
In that Book he registered to one thousand havelies of Bikaner with full detailed or with name of that’s owner. I am happy he mentioned to our haveli with name of our Madkotadi Purohit family member late Shri Kishan Gopal Purohit.
|My Installation work year 2014- title - 999 Haveli will remain after it .. i covered to our Haveli by News papers ..|
When Shri Updhyan Chand Kochar wrote and published his book About Bikaneri Havelies in that time I showed my pain in form of a art work (Installation). And I gave caption to that art work - 999 Haveli will remain After it , because our Haveli has crossed to date of expire .
Here in visuals you will see to that pain of myself about my city Heritage. (installation art work )
But last week I felt surprised when I saw a post of Art Doctor Satish Gupta (Asso. Prof. in Fine Arts subject in Dungar College, Bikaner) on his facebook page. In his post I saw some visuals and a caption in Hindi. He wrote 'MY HAVELI'
Dr Satish Gupta is Busy in Design to his new art center / studio/ gallery plus Museum too. He designed to studio in look of HAVELI of Bikaner style. So he is using to red sand stone Havelies parts in new construction. He design a new architect design ,(Combination of Modern or classical art form).
Actually Dr. Satish Gupta know the value of Heritage or that’s art elements because he has completed his art education in art history. He know how to conserve to historical art. So he is going to design a museum at his art studio .
He selected some part of damaged old expired havelies and he is giving a look of Haveli to his art center. His art commitment is very strong, he reach to his real art role in society as a art doctor or that’s live example is his new art centre in form of classical Bikaneri Haveli. He is feeling proud on his self when he is saying it with full confidence, IT'S MY HAVELI .

|Myself with Dr. Satish Gupta|
In construction work of his Haveli, I noticed some part of old Jharokha of haveli (red sand stone) were missing, so he managed or fill that by new carving work ( red sand stone ). It is very expensive but when a artist take a self commitment after that there is no space for any excuse. This kind of attitude I saw in Dr. Satish Gupta . So my best wishes for his historical art dream.
When I am talking to him about his art action for heritage. I noticed he can build another thousand 's Havelies In Bikaner, when he get a good chance for care to heritage of Bikaner ,
So here I wrote it ..he can build another one thousand Haveli in Bikaner .
