Sanjay Kalra has also been invited by the Doris Duke Foundation for Islamic Art in Hawaii to de-liver lectures on Mughal Carpets. This event was coinciding with the textile society of America meet in Hawaii. Mr. Kalra was also invited to have a talk/discussion with Monty Don (BBC presenter) which aired on BBC regarding the Mughal Gardens being inspired from Rugs and Mughal Rugs being inspired from Gardens.
We also run a school- THE INTERNATIONAL SCHOOL, Agra, and work tirelessly to provide quality education to people from different backgrounds. Mr. Kalra experienced a void in the educa-tion sector of Agra and as a true entrepreneur, he tried to bridge the gap between quality education and the masses.
