A woman’s desire is to be unique – she is the goddess that is not idolized. She is deity that is not adored. She is commotion, the calm. She is mystery, the tempest. She is celestial and earthy, innocent and erotic. Thirteen years ago, I decided to spend some time Going around India. Inspiration was on every street corner. Colors, fragrance, the architecture – I was captivated, enthralled and hypnotized. True to my wish for freedom, I brought inspiration from different culture, which became my aspiration for Research on “Fibers.”
Married into an Education environment, with a family of Educationist. I developed a keen foresight for creative and innovative teaching an eye for details and passionately writing about different Fibers, Textiles and Costumes. I have a rich experience of 33 years in the field of Textile and Management; have been Advisor to Hastshilp Vikas Nigam, Government of M P., participating actively in several National and International Workshops, Seminars and Conferences.
Have authored, contributed articles and edited more then fifteen of books on Textiles, have a number of research papers to my credit where I have also been awarded the best paper award.
Have guided more than 170 design projects, providing technical assistance to Small Scale Industries, Government of India.

I have successfully completed a UGC Minor Research Project and have been one of the pioneers for developing vocational courses in Textiles through e learning for Distance Education; at present I am Coordinator of Department of Textile Designing at Dayalbagh Educational Institute, (Deemed University) Agra, India.

Introduction to Textiles
An Introduction of Textile covers the intrinsic classification of the textiles, along with the physical analysis of fabric composition of different Textiles. This information is based on a systematic grouping of Textiles into different type, source or composition.
It is followed with its summary, practical experiments for the students to practice, test your-self.
Costumes and Textile Designs of India
For a complete picture of Indian culture, it is necessary that its material aspects should be investigated. There is no dearth of material of Indian Costumes and Textile Designs from contemporary sculptures, paintings and other archaeological finds. The beauty of an Indian costume lies in its richness of weaving, use of brilliant colours and skilful patterning. This book speaks volumes.
FIBERS An Introduction
In the study of fibers, initial interest will be when they discover the natural fascination of fabrics and their cultural associations, particularly when factual study is supplemented by actual handling of the textile materials. The subject will seem worthwhile as they become familiar with illustrative specimens and fabrics and begin to handle and learn to compare the raw materials.
