Tikkaraj Aishwarya Katoch of Lambagaon, known as ‘Ash’ to his close friends, is a modern prince who’s reviving the heritage of his father’s former royal State of Kangra, in Himachal Pradesh. As the son of Chandresh Kumari Katoch, a former minister who’s also the Princess of Jodhpur, Aishwarya has had unrestricted access to his maternal uncle, the Maharaja of Jodhpur’s palace. “I’ve seen Jodhpur since I was a baby; I was born there,” he says. “I’ve copied my uncle as far as setting up my museum in Kangra is concerned, and the heritage work I’ve done in my area. He’s been a great influence, and I’ve tried to recreate what I could in Kangra.”
