‘Nek Chand was a man with a big heart’: Manmohan Jolly

“These works have been with us for more than two decades and yet there has been no change in the beauty and colours of the sculptures, which catch your attention immediately and then your eyes find new ways to appreciate the master’s touch and his dedication towards his art."
