Chandigarh: Nek Chand, creator of the iconic Rock Garden who has amazed people for decades with his unique sculptures made from waste, died today at a hospital in Chandigarh following a cardiac arrest. He was 90 years old and was suffering from diabetes, hypertension and cancer.

Nek Chand developed the art of creating figures from waste material discarded by people and secretly set up his laboratory in a forested area in north Chandigarh to help his creations get into shape. All kinds of waste material like broken bangles, cutlery, chinaware, electrical fittings like switches, plugs and tube-lights, marbles, tiles, household junk, stones, building material waste and other things have found their way into art creations by Nek Chand.
