He used to paint on the walls of his village home. His mother, a humble soul never refrained her son from messing the walls. In fact she encouraged him . At the age of six Jitendra joined the village school. Fortunately for him the school encouraged all forms of arts. His uncle who was an artist helped him in developing his interest and skills in art.
