One day when I was in a tailor's shop for getting repaired my canvas jeans’ zip, after repair I asked how much money I had to pay? He told with a miny smile that money did not matter but your heavy jeans destroyed two of my needles, so give me two rupees only. By saying so he touched my heart. It was beginning of a friendship. In the beginning I convinced my friends-relatives-acquaintances somehow and decorated my designs on their bodies. I remember I created some stylish Khadi (kind of an Indian cotton) shirts within 50 rs of budget (including stitching charges). Naturally, whenever any third person would praise the style/design, the shirt-owner returned to me for a new design.
Then I started to illustrate these designs in a diary. Also created a new name for myself - KG Sanjay. Mostly I used to create one design for one particular person. Sometimes people selected one from my pre-drawn designs. The same designs are now safe in this diary. Most of designs are created in 1984-85. Pages of the lined diary (I got as a gift with my first bicycles in 1979) got yellow and blury, Actually at that time I could not know exactly what to do with diary and designs thereafter! In fact even I did not know that Fashion designing is a profession or there are some courses for it. NIFT (National Institute of Fashion Technology) had been established later.
Thankfully I got an app like SuperPhoto-Free which made these pictures quite clear, attractive and impressive. Originally these designs had been created for Gents' shirts and jackets, but these can be used easily in place of each other. As far as I am concerned, can create a few new designs from these and can also beautifully convert these into T-shirts or Ladies Garments. Few of these designs I made with old and useless clothes like design no. 118 had been made of two waste pants and an old jacket. You too can try this if you are creative and imaginative somewhere inside. In inverted (white in black), there are many designs where you can try painting, screen printing, patchwork, embroidery etc. The original sketch is also there with each design.
See you again with a new attempt. Of course, there will be a new job and most probably this will be for women's clothings. It will take some time but hopefully something new and different will come out.
The first part of the old and yellow diary is now in your hands-
with best wishes,

कपड़ा देखने में ब्ल्यू डेनिम जैसा था, अंदर ग्रे कलर था। पिताजी की कपड़ों की दुकान थी यानि कि होलसेल क्लॉथ मर्चेंट थे। जब कभी दुकान पर कोई फ़ैंसी कपड़ा आता, वे घर ले आते थे। इस कपड़े को देखकर मन हुआ क्यों न इसका डिज़ाइन ख़ुद ही बनाया जाए। शहर में रेडीमेड कपड़ों का एक ही शोरुम था, जहां टंगे रंग-बिरंगे, अलग-अलग डिज़ाइनों वाले कपड़े देखकर मन ललचा जाता। हम लगभग निम्नमध्यवर्गीय लोग थे, इसलिए आए दिन महंगी चीज़ें खरीदना संभव नहीं था (अभी भी मैं वही हूं)। मैंने दर्ज़ी को डिज़ाइन बताया तो वह तैयार ही न हुआ, हंसने लगा। मैं कह रहा था कि ग्रे कलर की शर्ट और उसपर ब्ल्यू से डिज़ाइन और पैंट पर ठीक इसका उल्टा करना है। मैं ज़िद करता रहा और अंततः वह मान गया। इस तरह डिज़ाइनिंग की शुरुआत हो गई। उससे पहले घर पर अपने ड़िज़ाइन किए स्वेटर, स्कूल बैग आदि बनवाता रहता था।
