“Love what you do and do what you love. Don’t listen to anyone else who tells you not to do it. You do what you want, what you love. Imagination should be the center of your life.” well said by Ray Bradbury. Don’t be afraid to dream big. Don’t be afraid when someone tells you that something can’t be done; it can be done. No matter what obstacles have been thrown in your way, or how many people have doubted you, dare to dream big. This’s what Gurgaon based Sumit Gupta did. A Kathak exponent running his own institute ‘Suryansh Kala Vatika’ and also working in a reputed organization ‘Scottish High International School, Gurgaon as an Activity and ICT coordinator. He is doing what he always wanted to do and here’s his Kahaani Zidd Ki.
“I am always passionate about classical dance Kathak and wanted to become a great dance artist but my family was not allowing me for this profession, they wanted me to become an IT professional as I bong to a businessman family background. After facing so much of struggle for continuing my dance passion I have achieved my goals. Being a male member of the family and inclined towards classical dance form, nobody likes this art form due to less opportunity and exposure in my city. I thought nothing is impossible and motivate myself – I can I will. I started participate in number of dance events without my parents’ permission and won the number of prizes due to my dedication and hard work, everyone appreciated me and my family. Slowly they have realized this is not a bad thing and dance is such a worship of lord. They thought I will make my career in this field, lots of struggle is there and difficult to survive if I met in an accident than how will I spend my whole life. Their concern is also valid as a parents I gave them assurance that I will make my career in IT filed and will follow my passion also. They accepted me and gave me wings to fly. I have chosen my profession in IT sector and completed my graduation/ post-graduation in computer and side by side I have done Kathak Prabhakar and Sangeet Bhushan also. Now I am handling both professions nicely and achieved my goals in both different fields.
I am running my own institution named Suryansh Kala Vatika, as director and working in Scottish High International School as an Activity and ICT coordinator in Gurgaon
