After acquiring his degree in Bachelor of Commerce (B.Com) from Jagran College of Arts, Science, and Commerce in Kanpur, he strived to pursue a course on Master Program in Gems and Jewellery from ISGJ, Surat. The course helped him to gain the knowledge and skill that he needed to give rise to his creation.
