Renowned Shooter and Material Culture Revivalist
Adhiraj Singh Devra's enthusiasm and expertise in the arts of the martial castes of South Asia was obtained through the historic Shaashtra Kala spiritual discipline. He is a national level medalist for shooting and has travelled around the world for shooting competitions representing India.
His education and commitment to historic art processes, conservation and the revival of Bikaner as a South Asian cultural capital has been nurtured for years under the connoisseurship system passed down within his family for 14 generations. His education centre Olkaan Nishtah cum salon is a budding centre for students, scholars and art collectors interested to learn about South Asian material culture and its intellectual thought process.
He believes in the tradition of material cultural education and combines both historic knowledge of Indian arts with a new contemporary thought process for preservation and revival.
