SM Jaweed of Gulzar House in Charminar is gifted with a rare creative medium of carving the vegetables into beautiful and attractive structures. Although his friends and family members taunt him for doing this work, Jaweed never cares them and carves vegetables with great amount of passion. Vegetable carving is his bread and butter. He carves vegetables with so much dedication that he forgets the world for a moment. His works are applauded by one and all. But the biggest desire of Jaweed is to gift a 'Whitehouse' made of Ash gourd to the American President.

Jaweed uses common vegetables like beetroot, carrot, radish, bitter gourd and ash gourd in his creations. Be it a marriage function or a birthday party, Jaweed carves the vegetables according to the occasion and theme. The carving is done in less than three hours. Living in abject poverty, Jaweed's creations are applauded even by Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu when Jaweed presented a beautiful vegetable model on the occasion of completion of his hundred days rule as Chief Minister of Andhra Pradesh.

Beetroot marvel
Jaweed's world revolves around vegetables. He sees everything through them. The model carved out of a beetroot depicts a women drawing water from a well and pouring it to a thirsty lady.
A flower vase?
The structure looks like as if though flowers are nicely arranged in a vase. But in reality, the flowers are made purely from radish and carrot.
A hungry crocodile
This extraordinary creation is made with bitter gourd, which resembles like a real crocodile in a ferocious hungry mood.
Jostling for nest
A beautiful nest and three colourful birds. The carving depicts birds in a jostling mood.
Creativity at its unbridled best
This carving recreates the traditional Hindu marriage aesthetically. The bride and bridegroom are seen encircling the bonfire in a mandap amidst chants from pundits. The palki getting ready to carry the bride is also seen in the creation.
Branching - out of vegetables
Jaweed's creations encompass a real beauty. Be it humans or birds, he carves them with great fervour. In this carving you can find birds taking rest on the branches.
