Milestones of career road

author02 Dr. Madhumati Singh 22 Dec 2015 0

Most of the times, our career just‘happens to us’, either by trial and error method or simply by default. We cometo terms with clichés like “have to earn my bread and butter, doesn’t matterwhat I do, don’t have to like your job as long as it get you money”, etc.

Two-third of our wakeful hours isspent at our workplace. How can we be in it with our inner eyes shut? Being amismatch for your job, being dissatisfied stressed or exhausted because youdon’t like what you are doing brings about various psycho-physical diseaseslike cardiac disorders, diabetes, hypertension, depression, etc.

Mindfulness i.e. in full awarenessand an insight to our career is the road to healthy and fulfilled life.Following are the milestones of the career road which we all should try to follow:

1. Start early: Career development starts when we aretoddlers as we begin to become aware of our surroundings. A pre-school child isnoticing various people and different things they do: a farmer, driver, policeofficer, doctor, sports-person etc. Parents should share detailed informationabout how different people do different jobs. Taking the child to the doctorfor her vaccination, do talk to her about medicine as a profession. Within thisfield comes paramedical, research etc.

2. Social contact for career information: We often take children to socialgatherings and very often skip informing the child about what kind of jobs thepeople gathered here are doing. Our introduction is restricted to their nameand perhaps the relationship they have (aunt, uncle, cousins etc.). A valuablehands-on information and interaction about what kind of jobs people do ismissed. It is an invaluable experience for the child at such social gatheringsto interact with people, including school and college going youngsters, as towhy they chose a particular set of subjects to take up those kinds of jobs.

3. Natural flair and interest of the child: The new-age parents expose childrento a plethora of activities from primary years itself. The child is sent forart, dance, music, sports, mathematical skills like Kumon classes. Sadly thishappens more out of a hard-driven parent, competing with other parents, tryingreal hard to out-do parenting in their social circle. So the good news is thatchildren these days are exposed to various skills, activities early in life,but the bad news is parents land up cluttering too many activities in thechild’s day, exhausting the child due to which the child starts to avoid orhate the activities. This bad news can be replaced with parents being sensitive and aware of what the childenjoys doing the most and wants to avoid or makes little progress in the set ofactivities. Take the lead from the child and help her develop and grow inactivity that s/he enjoys. Only then it is a win-win situation because both thechild and parent will identify those areas or few areas early in child’slife which the child is “interested” inand has the “aptitude” and “achieves”rapid success in that activity.

4. What do you want to become? This is the often –asked question tochildren in primary school by one and all at school and home. Most often theboy who wanted to wear the uniform to be this dashing police officer zipping onthe motorcycle, suddenly changes to a doctor treating a patient, and laterchanges to becoming a DJ. This primary child is exploring the world of workwhich is very good. But there are few children who are not able to feelstrongly enough to talk about a particular job or even identify with it. Sowhen this child is asked: “What do you want to become when you grow up?” he/sheanswers: “What do you want me to become when I grow up?”. We parents mostly advocate a safe predictable and time-tested careeroption. Also, perhaps because we are not well informed with new avenues of workand changing career choices. So we blurt out to this child: “We want you tobecome a doctor because we are a family of doctors” or “ become an engineer because your elderbrother is an engineer” or “take up teaching because it’s the safest and leastdemanding of jobs for girls” and our ready-made answers that are biased andrestrictive is sent out to these impressionable minds.

The most empowering and apt response to this question is: I want you to take up a job that youenjoy doing. That activity should make you compete with yourself so as to reachnew heights of excellence. Any activity that you enjoy doing, you will put inmore time, effort and practice that helps you further excel in it. You willlike the ‘hard work’ because you enjoy doing that. This will enhance yourdedication and instill creativity in this field of work. Once passion is putinto your job it is bound to bring excellent results. So, ‘doctor’, ‘engineer’, ‘MBA’ are only names. None is better orworse. See what holds your interest and curiosity and the rest will fall inplace.

Like the four pillars of a building,guide you child through the above career milestones.


Done with School, Now What?

author02 Anubha Das 08 Sep 2016 0

You may have sleepless nights about your future. You’re not the only one, many students who pass out are not certain about where to begin in terms of higher education.

Due to the educational framework in India, the choices after 12th grade become a foundation stone for your career. At this point, students have picked their stream as either science, Commerce or Humanities. Good choices after 12th can make your career and speed up your progress.

There are basically three options in front of an individual:

  • Remain in the chosen stream & choose a higher education
  • Change the stream and choose a higher education
  • Start planning in case they do not get the course/college of their choice


The first step in making a decision is to set a long term goal. Once an individual have a long term goal, they can divide it into achievable short term goals. Students should spend enough time contemplating about this and take help from parents, teacher & mentors. They should think of reasons that will keep them motivated throughout the course. Once they have an idea of what they want to do, it’s important to choose an institution that will give them the best educational opportunity.

Once you are done with school you go on to a new phase and learn many more new things.



Interview with Nakul Sahdev

author02 Editor 28 Oct 2016 0

Once Subhash Ghai Sir told me that “when you learn something you have to let go of it because you are a vessel and if you are filled with something then how will you learn new thing in life.” , and that’s what I have been following all my journey. Nakul Sahdev, an actor from Udaipur started his formal training in acting and film making right after he finished schooling from St. Paul’s Udaipur. To know more about his journey read the excerpt here by Anubha Das

Tell us about your journey so far? From being a regular boy in Udaipur to a growing star of TV industry?

I feel I’m growing and improving each & every day. I'm still a regular boy but with extra ordinary dreams, so yes I don't think I can find a perfect word for myself. However, I think I'm on a road to conquer without a destination but with well thought out vision.

You were a student of Whistling Wood International. So, how did WWI help you crave your niche as an on-screen character?

Yes. A lot! And I thank WWI for opening the doors of my life and my mind.
It ignited a spark and made me a curious child.

What role did formal schooling play in moulding you as an actor?

Apart from all the technicalities you learn about Acting and film making, my film schooling gave me eminent sense of being and self belief.
Now when I say eminent I’m not trying to explain my arrogance but a fact which I learnt that you and your work should speak superior quality.

What do you feel is the best educational preparation if you aspire to be an actor?

I think more than educational preparation. You have to first work on your belief system, and then start your educational learning. What I believe is watching movies and learning from books will help you in a long run.

Who is your inspiration?

My inspiration has always been my passion towards the work I do. I also get inspired by the books I read and my heart.

What was the feeling all together when you were facing the camera for the first time?

The exact same feeling that a baby feels while listening to their heart beat surprisingly. It was a trilling moment for me but madness for people around.

Acting is a short lived career, what after 5 years or 10 years?

I love acting and I have a great deal of respect for the film and television industry. Even though it is said to be short lived career, an actor with passion can always be there in the eyes of the public. We have a lot of great examples from our TV and film industry like Ali Asgar, Kavita Kaushik and many more.

What struggles did you face?

This career may sound easy, but no! It isn’t that much. The struggles that I faced were to go through so many unnoticeable roles to bag a well recognized lead role. I have a very supportive family but sometimes you just lose patience.

Any acting tips you want to share with our readers?

Be honest towards yourself and your desires. Work hard, dream harder. See skill is not improved in hobby classes; we have to be at it every day. Now it can be worked upon through self learning or through a formal course, that's subjective.

Who would you give credit for your success?

My family holds all the credit for my success. I honestly believe that you can't take or give credit to yourself or few out there.
I have a habit that after I rap up every project I thank to each and every individual who was involved in project and it's not a kind gesture; I owe it to them for helping me perform at my best.

How was working with notable personalities of Indian Film Industry like Naseeruddin Shah, Subhash Ghai while studying at WWI?

It's an institution where we exchange learning and share our hearts out.
It was an unforgettable experience.

What would you like to say to the newcomers who are trying to get a break in TV & Film industry?

Believe and work hard, then it will be given to you.

Do you advice students to take this career?

Career is a very personal choice that a student has to make. I’ll most certainly advice the students to follow their passion. If their passion lies in acting then they should always choose a career path accordingly.

What institutes would you suggest that have good acting courses?

WWI, NSD, Lee Strasberg theatre and film institute, NYU are few of the institutes with good acting course



Interview with Ms. Devika Das

author02 21 Nov 2016 0

Ms. Devika Das an aspiring author who has successfully launched two books. She started writing at the age of 13 and gone against the stereotypes to pursue her passion for writing. FairGaze got an opportunity to interact with her. Read the excerpt below to know more about Devika.

What made you realize that writing is your call?

I am writing since the age of 13. I wrote my first poem titled “Isn’t It True”.  I had an inclination for creative arts from a young age. I started theatre at the age of ten. I was more inclined to creative arts rather than academics. I started my blog in 2008 where I got a good response from the readers. However, professionally I took up writing in 2012.  Now it has been 4 years that I am into this profession. I also thought that I should write on topics which will help people realise and inculcate the spirit of self-confidence. I used to read a lot about how people are making money right now but people are also undergoing lot of pressure and depression nowadays.  People are now suffering more from mental health issues rather than physical health issues. It gave an inspiration to write a self-motivation guide and that is how my second book ‘The Mind Game’ came into being.

What was your first write up?

My first write up was a poem titled ‘Isn’t it true’.

What kind of support you got from your family?

My family has always supported me. I have always gone against the stereotypes and never suppressed my aspirations due to peer pressure. I have always battled peer pressure, which was the hardest form of depression I faced. I was also on the verge of getting into depression but luckily due to my parents’ support I managed to battle it and came out of it.

Where did you get your inspiration for writing?

I was an avid reader of philosophy and moral science. When I wrote my first poem it was based on how students are constantly pressurised to score good marks.  My first poem was titled ‘Isn’t it true’. There is no particular inspiration and role model whom I look up to and write. I think it comes from within.

 Since you have studied marketing and finance, what made you switch the role?

I always wanted to get into the part of non-sales profile of marketing such as advertising and offline marketing. I got an opportunity in content marketing and it gave me a good platform to test my writing potential as well as it helps a company to increase its revenue without much investment. It is not like I am directly going and talking to the client but it is my content that sells with which obviously my company will be benefited. So I am doing justice to my passion of writing as well as my degree of MBA.

So, you feel that you faced difficulty in your role as an author?

Every writer faces difficulties. I have also faced challenges. I did not seek any monetary expectations while writing my novel ‘The Mind Game’ but just wanted readers to accept my writing style, I think that is the first obstacle for an author if you think that your book will record a high sale or it will attract huge number of followers. You should write with authenticity and credibility then you should leave it onto the public. Even, when I wrote my first book ‘Seven Vows of Marriage’ I did not have any monetary expectations; I just wanted to express my views about my perspectives about marriage.

What made you decide to sit down and actually start something?

I analysed that people such as my friends and family members used to talk to me about their problems and seek my advice. And I also started answering questions on Quora where I found so many people not having a friend to talk to. That is how I started writing. Apart from this I love travelling. I think travelling gives me an inspiration to record my journey. If you ask me about my novel ‘The Mind Game’, I used to read a lot in the newspaper about how people chose to end their lives for several reasons. Often, people have committed suicide under peer pressure. I think there is a need to stop this thing and help people understand that life is precious and given only once; they should realise the value of life and enjoy it to the fullest. So that is how I came into writing this book

What is your first book all about?

My first book ‘The Seven Vows of Marriage’ is my personal take on how the meaning of the term ‘marriage’ and the overall institution has changed. Presently, people are hesitant to get married at a younger age and people sometimes get confused while getting into relationships; hence, they prefer to be single rather than get married. So it is a personal take on how marriage is a beautiful association, how it was perceived by our parents and grandparents, and how the youth looks into it.

Do you recommend Writing as a career to students?

Writing is a good career because it helps the person to explore your individuality. Sometimes, it is difficult to express your opinion to the public. People sometimes feel that they are not able to emote or express their feelings verbally, meanwhile writing helps you to express your true feelings. When that piece of creativity goes out in the public obviously it attracts readers. I believe that now people are taking content marketing very seriously as they are even managing blogs and making money. I think writing is beautiful.

In your opinion, should children have writing as a practice in their curriculum?

Definitely, in order to write well reading is important. Reading expands your vista of knowledge. In general, reading helps you know much more about life. If you learn about moral science at school and if you read more books on similar topics you will get more information, and know about morality, human values etc.  Children especially should start reading at an early age if they wish to write.

How important are mentors for students?

I think, at any walk of life, a mentor helps you nurture your talent because sometimes people are unaware about their hidden talents and qualities.  A mentor helps an individual identify their hidden abilities and his/her true potential. So good mentors are very important right from the school level, to college level as well as in our professional lives; even working professionals should have a mentor in their company.

How do you differentiate mentors from trainers?

A trainer follows a specific curriculum that he or she needs to impart to the student. However, a mentor is someone who knows the ‘in and out’ of an individual. He will also know the weaknesses and strength and help the individual overcome those weaknesses.

What are your future plans?

In future I would like to become a full time author and if I continue within the corporate world, then I see myself as a content strategist of an organization. .




Interview with Mr. K.V.Gautam

author02 Editor 06 Dec 2016 0

K.V.Gautam is a professional cartoonist who honed his craft from a very early age. He is also a motivational speaker and an author based in New Delhi. He has worked as a political cartoonist for leading newspapers like Hindustan Times, Dainik Jagran and Indian Nation.  A self-taught cartoonist, he got his cartoons published in several journals including fortnightly Khojbin and monthly Cartoon Watch, while he was still in school. Let’s dig in more into his life and ideology through our correspondent Anubha Das.

When did you know that you wanted to be a cartoonist?

I was determined to become a cartoonist when I was in my 10th class. I started to draw even before I started to write.

What kind of response did you get?

When I informed my parents about my decision they were confused. They did not know if there was any career option to become a cartoonist and earn money by drawing cartoons. My father wanted me to take up a government job like him. My friends were also not sure and many of them were not aware about career options in the field of cartooning. My parents become supportive only after my cartoons published in leading newspapers.

Who inspired you the most in your school days?

I was inspired by the legendary Indian cartoonist R K Laxman. When I was in 5th class I used to see a newspaper shop on the way to my school. One day I saw a newspaper hung upside down with some fine drawing on the front page. Whenever those drawings appeared I used to buy the newspaper using my pocket money. I did not understand the purpose of the drawings but I used to admire the fine drawings. Sometime later I understood that the drawings were political cartoons drawn by R K Laxman in the Times of India newspaper. This also started my habit of reading newspapers and improving general knowledge and political understanding.

What is your favourite cartoon character?

The Common Man created by R K Laxman

What do you do when you face rejections?

Rejections are part of life. We should not expect to be liked by everyone. Some people like you and some don't. As far as failure is considered, I feel failures teach us more than anything else. We
should take failure in the right perspective. We can improve ourselves and turn a failure into a success. No failure is final and no success is permanent. Improving ourselves every day is important. Failure should be taken as foundation of our success.

What is more important to you---style or idea?

Idea is the soul of any cartoon and is the most important part of it.

Do you advise students to take up this as their career?

These days’ youngsters can have careers in the field of cartooning in many ways. They can opt for the animation industry, or can work in a newspaper or magazine as a cartoonist. These days many websites also use services of cartoonists. It’s important to be good in your art work to start a career. One should know how to draw well and one should also have good knowledge of the world and society. Besides that, one should have a good sense of humour.

One should choose this as a career if they are passionate about it. The career of cartooning can give lots of fame too. For example, I have been invited to speak at high profile events like TED. Someone
made a documentary film on my life as a cartoonist and the film was screened at 16 international film festivals. Recently I was invited to become a participant in the high profile TV show Bigg Boss. Even if I rejected the offer I got huge publicity from mainstream media and TV channels.

In your opinion should drawing or arts be made mandatory in school curriculum?

I would not recommend it to be made mandatory as some students may not have any interest in the drawing art. We all are born with different talents, and forcing one form on all of us is not fair.
However, it should be noted that drawing is a very good expression of creativity, and creativity is required in success of any field.

Understudies nowadays are very much involved in art yet guardians support are missing, what do you have to state on this?

I understand that parents are mostly focused on earning capacity of any career option. Few decades back India mostly had government jobs or medicine or engineering as viable career options. However, these days there has been explosion of new career opportunities and youngsters can make good career out of any art form. Many cartoonists have earned good amount of money and fame in their careers. It should be noted that jobs for cartoonists are limited in big cities.

Is there any particular course related to this profession?

We do not have any good course in India on cartooning. I have organized cartoon workshops at IIT Kanpur, Anna University, BITS Pilani, VIT University, Delhi University and IIT Delhi. I see many students keen to learn this art form. I keep getting requests from many people to teach them this art form. However, I feel there is no good institute to teach the art of cartooning in India. Most
cartoonists are self-taught. Even I am a self-taught cartoonist.

Do you think that this career path leads to nowhere after a few years of glory?

No. There are many fine cartoonists who have long careers.

What institutes do you advice?

Students can opt for Sir JJ School of Arts. This will give them a good understanding of art. Thought it is not for only cartoonists.

Do you feel that mentors should be more than trainers in today’s education system?


What do you plan for your future?

I want to spread the art of cartooning even more. I also want to conduct more cartoon workshops to ensure more young people get interested in this amazing art form.


Interview with Ms. Adite Banerjie

author02 Editor 11 May 2017 0

Adite Banerjie’s love for books started at an early age. After working as a business journalist she turned her attention to writing fiction. She is the author of the romantic thriller, No Safe Zone. She has also written two books under the Mills and Boons brand name. Read the excerpt below to know more about Adite through our correspondent Ms. Srishti Anand.

How did the idea of writing occur to you?

Right from my childhood I was a keen reader. My habit of reading was encouraged by my parents who themselves were voracious readers of all kinds of fiction and non-fiction books. But apart from writing the odd essay for the school magazine I really did not take up writing in a major way. After my graduation I was looking for opportunities to take up a vocational course when I came across a journalism and creative writing course. I applied for it and I was hooked for life. Writing has been an obsession for me ever since.

What made you leave core journalism and take up writing fiction?

My journalism career spanned more than 15 years and during that period I worked with several publications including, The Daily, Sunday Magazine, The Economic Times and Business Today. While I enjoyed my journey as a journalist, I wanted to spread my wings. I wanted to explore different kinds of writing, including content writing and fiction.
So, I gradually shifted my attention towards freelance writing. I did – and still continue to –freelance content writing which included writing research reports for organisations, ghost-writing business articles, among others.
In the meantime, I also focused on learning the craft of fiction writing. I enrolled in screenwriting courses and that helped me enormously in understanding the essentials of plotting, scene building, world building, genre conventions, etc. which are very important for writing mainstream commercial fiction.

What is the best part about writing?

Whether I am writing a piece of fiction or doing business writing, I enjoy the entire process. Right from the research stage, to plotting the structure up to the actual writing and editing it.

People say writing is a therapy, do you think so?

I agree totally. Often when you are going through difficult situations in your personal life, writing can be a very cathartic experience and it can help resolve your issues, without going to a therapist! Many people write journals for that very reason. I have personally dealt with loss and grief by writing about it. It’s up to you whether you choose to make it public or not but writing is the best medicine that you can rely on.

Do you experience writers block? What is your way to cope up with it?

Everyone goes through writer’s block at some point or the other. When that happens to me, I try to evaluate the reasons for it. Writer’s block in most cases is a symptom of the fact that something in your story is not working. There are several ways of dealing with it. Sometimes you just need a break from your writing. And do something totally unrelated. Try not to think about your work-in-progress and when you come back to it after a few days or weeks with a totally fresh mind, you will automatically find solutions for those elements in your story that were not working.

Would you advise students to take up writing as a career and what is your advise to them?

Writing is first and foremost a passion. You have to enjoy reading books (and not just fiction but all kinds of books). As a voracious reader, you begin to imbibe the basics of writing, including writing styles, structure, grammar, etc. It also helps you differentiate between good and mediocre writing so that when you write your own essays or stories you will have a good feel for what works and what doesn’t. Without this kind of internal assessment, it will be difficult for you to evaluate your own work and make improvements.
Also, if you want to take up writing as a career, I would recommend that you first start off as a journalist or content writer, preferably in an organisation where you can get hands-on experience and guidance from mentors. While this will help you earn money from writing, it will also be a great opportunity to hone your writing skills. Be aware that if you want to write fiction, it is unlikely that you will make a living by publishing books. However, there are other ways of earning money from fiction writing – especially in the film and entertainment industry. But whatever kind of writing you focus on, you have to first learn the craft and focus on developing your writing skills.

Who has been your biggest inspiration?

My father worked as an art director in the Indian film industry. He also acted in amateur theatre in his youth. His love and passion for storytelling has always inspired me. He could spin the greatest yarns from the most mundane of things. But more importantly, he would tell the stories in a most entertaining fashion. When I write, I often think of how my dad would have narrated the story and that continues to be a constant source of inspiration.

What is the one tip about writing which helps a writer do wonders?

Read! Read across genres. Read everything and anything that you can lay your hands on. That was the tip I was given by my first mentor in journalism and I would give the same tip to anyone who wants to be a writer. Renowned author Stephen King says it best: “If you want to be a writer you must do two things above all others: read a lot and write a lot. There’s no way around these two things that I’m aware of, no shortcut.”

Have you ever been rejected by a publisher or such? How can a writer cope up with such rejections?

Rejections are a big part of the writing process. Every writer has to deal with it. As a journalist, many of the story ideas I pitched to my editors were rejected. But in those cases I made an effort to find out why they were being rejected. If I had already written out the story I would try and re-work it based on the feedback and re-submit. Or if the story was not feasible for other reasons, I would just move on and try to find some other story idea that would be more appealing.
In fiction writing, while my books have not been rejected (as yet) many of my screenplays have not found takers. There can be multiple reasons for that: for instance the scale of the story may require a bigger budget for the filmmaker or it may be in a genre that the filmmaker is not comfortable with. Same goes for the publishing world. So, every writer needs to develop a thick skin and not let rejections throw him/her off. The trick is in writing something more compelling, improving your skills and making sure that your next story will be more appealing and difficult to reject. 

What are your future plans?

There are plenty of opportunities for writers today even though the competition has got much tougher. My plan is to keep working on my craft, write stories that engage with today’s readers and viewers through better, more compelling stories.


Interview with Mr. Amitabh Madia

author02 Editor 05 Jul 2017 0

Profile- Amitabh Madia- Ediotor,Visual Artist (Painter ) , Art Historian, born in Mumbai, Amitabh Madia is an experienced painter and editor in the field of fine arts. Currently, Amitabh is working with a weekly magazine as an Assistant Resident Editor. Amitabh took his education from M.S.University, Baroda, under the faculty of fine arts. His skills and artistic talent gave him an award in terms of scholarships that he received in Oct- 1997 by Gujarat State Lalitkala Academy. He also received a Junior Fellowship Award (Visual Arts) in 1998 by the Dept. of Culture, Ministry of HumanResource Development, Govt. of India, New Delhi. Read the excerpt below to know more about Mr. Madia through our correspondent Ms. Priyanka Negi.

Is painting a very important part of your living?

Of course, it is a part of my life because that is the source of happiness for me. I would say it is the only aim that I am living for.

At the age of 16, what were your career goals do those career goals match with what you are doing today?

At the age of 16, I wanted to be a charted accounted, however, today I think it was more like peer pressure. In the entire world, no parents would encourage their children to take up an artistic career which is believed to be very dangerous because of the existence of uncertainties. I guess as per the parents perspective there are various uncertainties be it art or other creative fields. Thus, this is the biggest reason that the parents do not encourage their children to choose such goals. Though I belong to a very enlightened and intellectual family, my father was a well-known novelist in ‘Gujarat’. He was one of the top most literally person in ‘Gujrati Literature’ still it happened with me that they advised me not to choose the art field.

What was your family’s first reaction when you showed them an interest to become an artist?

As I have told you, that, in Indian families, it is very hard to convince the parents to choose a different career path. Usually, they got scared when their child shows an interest in a creative field so the same reaction I received from my parents when they got to know my interest towards painting and writing. I must add that, they aghast!

Was it challenging to pursue a career in arts and writing?

If you ask me, I believe that the real appreciation for real talent exist very little. I would like to add that not patronizing the talent of the gifted artist is the biggest issue that bothers me a lot. See, it is very calculative business when the society and the patrons appreciate the people with latent then only they can get something in return, so yes according to me respecting the talent is necessary and important.

Do you agree that painting require a certain level of inspiration?

Yes, of course, every artist needs the inspiration to create something; I hope you will agree that when an artist draws something on the canvas that depicts their thinking or their understanding of the world. Today, we see a variety of art a work of different painters and artists that are only possible with a magic stick called ‘Inspiration’.

What is the key difference between fine arts and visual art?

There is very thin but important difference between Fine arts and visual arts. Fine art is static art where as visual art is a dynamic field it can be a movie, theater or stage performance, where the visuals keep on changing within the same art work. On the other hand fine art includes painting on canvas or paper as well as sculptures that are static art. Additionally, all fine art is visual art, but that all visual art is not necessarily fine art.

During your journey as a painter or artist what was the most inspirational moment you faced?

It is very difficult for me to pin point a single moment of inspiration. I would like to say that I always get inspiration from within. According to me, everything on this earth is an inspiration for an artist it can be the nature, children, even the huge buildings that you see in the urban areas.

How students can achieve their aims to become a successful artist?

One should always be faithful towards their dreams. Whenever, you are under a dilemma, listen to your heart, focus on whether to choose it or not. There is one more important thing that the students can keep in mind that they should choose their career path according to their heart not according to the worldly perspective.

Would you like to advise those students who want to become an artist?
I would like to advise all the students that the path is difficult but not impossible. Students who are willing to become an artist need to be faithful towards their heart. They should always follow their dreams and passion.
