He considered art a sort of meditation or Yoga. His artworks changed from time to time with every college he attended, with every change in his life, with his age and with his wisdom and his view of subjects.

About his art and artworks he wrote, “Slowly and gradually I started realizing that subjects are meaningless. They are only for motivation. Actual realization comes with the fusion of inner and external world, when they become one with the artist himself”.

P.N Choyal is survived by his son Shail Choyal, daughter in law Surjeet Choyal, Grandson Akash Choyal and Charul.
