Sir Lakhaji Raj Vegetable Market RAJKOT

This vegetable market built just outside Raiya Naka gate was the first modern building built at that time outside of fort wall.  It was built in 1934 A.D. It catered to the population living in periphery of old town.  The building displays a fine example of steel truss supported on steel stanchions.   A noteworthy feature of this building is its spatial articulation of trussed roof on a curving plan.   This building is in a fine state and commands awe and respect of the masons and craftsmen of Rajkot.

This word 'sketchnama' has been derived from parent word 'aamalnama' [documentation of our deed]

Displayed are the set of sketches redrawn from my sketchbooks. 

It was year 2004 when my friend Allen Shaw gifted me my first proper sketchbook crafted at Kalaraksha, before this, I used to sketch on any available paper or books. This inspired me to 
do the documentation of my journey. today I have over 50 sketcbooks, where all events of my 
life have been recorded in form of a sketch, sketches ranging from classroom exercise, office 
work, trips, pilgrimage essentially every facet of my life even the tough times when I had to deal 
with the passing away of my elders. 

This set of sketches are dedicated to all design students who have been associated with me 
during all these years all for the love of sketchbooks and sketching.
