Narinderpal has a hobby to collect such rare things and plans to take his exhibition to other parts of the city as well. "Over the years, I have collected these rare things and I have spent lakhs of rupees on this collection. I want to make the young generation aware of our rich cultural heritage. So I keep on organising such exhibitions," he says.
