Being from an average family background; blessings of my Guruji, Guide and Teachers, a self-realization and hard work towards art and its education I have been able to educate others with whatever I have observed and learned in my teaching and research. I have a deep wish to record in the field of methodology of visual arts research', which I could not get in my early stage of learning the very first book in India to our forthcoming generation. Being an Artist and a University teacher, I sometimes feel myself as a student or scholar who is trying to find out the truest way of working research in the area of visual arts and performing arts; both are amply considered under the fine arts. Keeping in mind the concept of research work in the field of Ph.D. and D.Litt. programmes awarded to me. I have been taking up national and international funded projects from time to time keeping the facts on research methodology. This is always advised to student scholars in regards to finishing their research work within its methodology before understanding the branches in which the topic deems fit. As mentioned earlier, there is no relevant book especially in visual arts/performing arts is available for Students/Scholars for which they had also raised a concern. It was suggested by students to take upon this subject and write a book. Grasping their desire, I planned to write a book on research Methodology in Visual Arts.
