Tapu designs jewellery for his own family business, owns “Tapulicious” -an accessory brand and has also been pursuing a teaching career at Indus Valley School of Arts & Architecture.

Tapu’s work has been widely recognised internationally, his photography has been published in magazines like Gallerie (India), Newsline, Herald and Visage.
