“My journey in Origami began when I was a kid…before starting schooling. The one person whom I greatly admire till this day is Robert Harbin. I was just a kid when I watched his TV programmes. He may not be the greatest of folders but it was through him and his book, “Paper Magic” that I learnt more about Origami. I also admire Akira Yoshizawa… more as an artist than an origamist. This is because to me, Origami is something which should be shared…Yes, Yoshizawa did share his works by publishing his origami… but tell me how many of us can reproduce his works? Not many, because there is a certain “touch” which only he can reproduce.
