Story Behind the Art:
Khyali Ram says, 'After high school, I moved to Punjab where one of my brothers was working, and got a job in a handicraft enterprise. I had the opportunity to learn the various techniques for crafting chess sets. When the factory closed, I teamed up with my brother-in-law and we started a small workshop with money our family and relatives lent us. We specialize only in games and create a huge variety of them.'
