We do what is expected of us by our peers, passed off as God’s will. We are always trying to prove ourselves worthy and in the process we live a lie. We are in the grip of attachment and ego.
Life is all about striking a balance. That’s what I do. Balance work with things that excite me. Not that work doesn’t. An engineer by qualification, my passion for work has driven me to be an entrepreneur, a pioneer in my field and a patent holder as well. But, as they say, all work and no play makes Jack a dull boy. Very true, because I get bored easily. The adventure seeker in me learnt to fly a plane (I hold a flying licence). The creative side of me seeks expression in writing scripts, some of which have been made into short films. One of these scripts lost its way and ended up being published as a novel. Friends tell me that there is a bit of me in it. Perhaps! Because, what is creativity but an expression of the creator? And expression comes when you feel the experience, not merely live it. Expression must reach out. And that’s why I am here. To amuse, to entertain, to inspire or merely to strike a chord within you. Of course, I’d be happy if you tick all the boxes. We talked about balance, didn’t we? God bless! Tapan Ghosh
