The tradition to pass on family knowledge from one generation to next generation can also be seen in this relationship of father Jangarh Singh Shyam and his daughter Japani Shyam. Like her famous father who has always been engrossed in Gond art, Japani has been very much familiar with the style and trends of Gond art. Nonetheless, she treads a different path from her patriarch to draw animated flora and fauna in thick forest. Even before she could reach in her teens, Japani’s talent was made known to the world when she awarded the Kamala Devi Award (1999) at a tender age of eleven.
