Snippets from the Keynote:
“One thing that I’ve learned from life is that time is always there, it’s just about how you manage it. I would like to share some life-changing experiences which allowed me to follow my passion.” With these words of Dr. Pradeep K Sinha began an amazingly enlightening 27th episode of Like-Share-Comment. This was followed by Dr. Sinha’s professional as well as personal experiences that he narrated like an interesting story.
He told about his stint with ONGC which he joined after completing his masters from IIT-Madras. He said that he was posted in a remote area of Assam at that time when he discovered that redundancy was occurring in his life. This was constantly nudging him from inside making him restless about the fact that valuable time was being wasted. Therefore to utilize the time, he started writing a book on fundamentals of computer. Later that book became a bestseller. He shared that creativity is something that people should get into and he specially feels happy whenever someone is able to follow his or her passion.
He also shared how he maneuvered his way to engineering because his parents wanted him to become a doctor while his interest lied somewhere else.
Life Changing Experience:
