Dhan Laxmi, is a serigraph revolving around the legend of Goddess Laxmi and King Sultan Ahmed Shah. The fort shown in this work is the Bhadra fort of Ahmedabad, which is now being demolished. The wilderness right next to the fort depicts the time of the Sultanate rule, when the city was just limited inside the seven Gates, all connected through walls and the rest was just forest. Goddess Laxmi is a symbol of wealth and prosperity. Waiting on the gate of this fort, a faint figure of Goddess Laxmi shows how she was stopped from exiting the gates of Ahmedabad, and thus preventing prosperity from leaving the city of Ahmedabad.
