Mr. Surendra C. Patel, a civil engineer and interior designer, is the designer and owner of Vishalla. Since 1965, he has been polishing his skills in creating environs perfect for both the occasion and the people they are made for, both permanent and temporary. Three years after setting up Vishalla, he tried to locate large utensils to render to the restaurant a more ethnic touch. He came across a place in Saurashtra where old utensils were being melted and sold for the brass value. Having the sensitive heart of a designer, the scene broke his heart. He resolved to put in substantial efforts to save and preserve the traditional beauty of utensils. He therefore created a one-of-its-kind museum of old utensils, which is now a public charitable trust, and named it Vechaar.
