Dare to Dream: YIC Delhi 2017 Delegate Shares How Her Life Changed After YIC

In a country like India, following your passion is still not given the importance it should get. And in a male dominant society like ours, it is even more difficult for girls to follow their passion and do what they love.

In such a situation, Aashi Bhaiji has set an example for all by following what she loves and choosing the field of Designing. Even after securing a seat in one of the medical colleges, Aashi decided to let go of it to study designing. Apart from being an amazing graphic designer, Aashi is also a passionate dancer and has been dancing since she was 6 years old. Aashi is one of those people who have dared to follow their passion and do what they love.

We got a chance to speak with Aashi and she happily answered a few questions and shared her experience of being a part of the 8th Young India Challenge at IIT Delhi in March 2017.

Here’s a snippet of the conversation:

Q. What was your most memorable moment at Young India Challenge?
Ans. So my most memorable moment was the time when we were outside the room and we were going to present the final idea to the judges and we were fully prepared with whatever we had to present and our presentation was done really well and the entire team, we were really really nervous because we did not know if our idea would, you know, if they would like it or they wouldn’t like it and we were not very clear on what we were supposed to you know like ummm..we didn’t know if what we pitch in is something that the judges are going to understand and if it’s going to come across clearly as how we thought about it. And right outside at that moment we were standing in a circle, we were all holding hands and I think Gaurav was present that time too with the camera and we were just like having a small group moment and we were all just having a small group moment I think we were hugging each other and I think that was my favourite moment because the bond that we built even though it was just for a span of 2 days but we got together and we worked and everybody just had that bond like you know we will do what and we will present it the way we thought about it and that was like my favourite moment, just that, it was 10 seconds outside the judges’ room and we were going to go inside. So that is what I really really liked.

Q. How has your life changed after attending YIC?
Ans. There were so many people that I made friends with and who I thought were doing just the regular stuff and you know who decided to go to engineering and go do something that your family wants to see you do. But because I met so many people who wanted to do what they like to do or who are motivated to do what they like to do and that motivates me more because I was doing my MBBS, I was cracking my entrance exam to get into medicine and the only reason I had taken up Biology in 11th and 12th was because I absolutely loved the subject and I still really really like it. But I don’t think that was something I wanted to do for like a long period of time and that is why I in the very after writing all the entrance exams like AIIMS and JIPMER and everything else after getting my MBBS seat and after getting admission into the colleges, I decided to shift to take design and I wanted to be a graphic designer because that is what I enjoy doing and that is what I see myself doing. So I think YIC helped in that because you guys reinforce the fact that you should ultimately do what you like to do because then you ultimately enjoy doing it and then there is nobody else who can actually tell you or force you to do what they want to see you doing. So I think that confidence has also come up now and I’m able to you know present myself better in front of people, like at least suppose the fact that if I’m doing design, I know that I’m gonna be doing well in it and I’ve been in a position in four years from now where I thought I’m never going to be in and you know you wouldn’t tell me anything about it. So I feel like that confidence and the motivation has pushed us from there so that’s something I really feel like was a good decision to attend YIC.

Q. Have your friends and family noticed any changes in you after YIC?
Ans. My parents have kept telling me that you have become very confident about what you’re doing now because it was a very, you know, when you change from a field like MBBS to something like designing which is a new upcoming field in India and nobody really recognises it. It’s very, you know, people reacting to it like what is your job going to be are you going to be able to have a settled future later on because considering the fact that I’m a girl also and people want me to be settled in a certain way with a nice family, household everything. So my parents are like, it’s good that you have, you know, built up confidence about what you’re doing. Even though I did have it, I mean that’s the only reason I took up this field in the first place but now because of YIC, it’s just been reinforced again. And also because I attended this is Delhi and I travelled all alone, so my parents are also, they’re like you’ve become a little independent also in a lot of other aspects and you’ve come up to that level where you can go and stand for yourself. And you know tell people that that you’re doing is well and you’re good at it, then this is what you should continue doing and it doesn’t really matter about what you could have done or you know what you could have been doing. So that’s not there anymore, which is I feel like it’s nice, it give me confidence when my parents confide in me like that.

Q. You were also a student at Shiamak Dawar’s Institute of Performing Arts. So has dancing been something that you have always been doing or is it something you discovered now?
Ans. So dancing has always been, I’ve been dancing since the age of 6 and my first experience of Dancing started as a mistake actually. So I had a friend who used to go for these dance classes Shiamak Dance Classes itself. And I happened to join, I mean for a class they had told that this is a fun class so bring your friends along with you and she happened to take me in that class. And I really enjoyed it and i think the instructors you know noticed that this girl is a really good dancer and also then they had spoken to my parents, So my parents thought why not, let’s give her a chance and let’s put her into dance class and that’s how it started. So I was in Shiamak Dawar since the age of 6 and then after that I got selected for another batch called Showcase which is basically from the age of 12 years. All the dancers from 6-12years from different areas of Bangalore are selected to a higher training level and they put you in a separate batch called Showcase. Then I was in Showcase for around 3 years. Then after that I left Showcase and I joined Shiamak again and this time I got selected for another higher batch called SPB  which stands for Special Potential Batch and it’s again dancers from the age group 13 and above, they get selected from all across bangalore they get selected to train on a higher level to become a part of the Shiamak Dawar Dance Company. We get trained in all styles, we’ve done Hip Hop or contemporary or bollywood or jazz. We learnt ballet. We learn everything in class and it’s a really tough training. So I’ve been dancing for a really long time and I’ve been a classical dancer in school, in school I’ve learnt Bharatnatyam for three years and I’ve learnt Kathak after that for like another 1 and a half years. So I mean dancing has always been a part of me, some way or the other. People know me as a dancer, so I don’t think I had any other identity. And when people go outside and even back in school when people hear my name, they’re like Aashi okay ya Dancer. So it feels good that way.

Q. Are you facing any challenges in doing what you love?
Ans. Okay this is like everyday I get to hear something or the other from, I mean even though my parents are still you know settling with the fact that I’m doing design and not doing MBBS anymore. They’re still like every time something happens in the family, when someone falls ill ya kisi ka phone aata hai type then it’s always like, my mom always gets into that mode where she keeps telling me “you know you could have been a doctor.” and that’s something she says in a painful hearted way and it sometimes just makes me feel really bad because I don’t know what to do. I mean I feel like sometimes they don’t appreciate what I’m doing and even from my friends for example when I was taking design, I hadn’t really told people and made my friends aware I’ll be doing design and for them I had just been putting myself into medicine, I had been going for coaching and study for medicine and just giving those exams. For me taking the field of design and shifting to them and I mean for them it was really surprising. They were like, did you not get your seat and people still say “haan isko seat nai mili hogi” and that’s why she took designing. She must not have performed well and people say things like that and it doesn’t really feel nice but sometimes we just really need to learn to ignore them and go forward with what you’re doing. And also because the fact that in my first semester my aggregate I got a 10 CGPA. So I still know that fact that I’m in the field that I love, I mean I’m doing something that I really love to do and I’m doing well in it. It is showing up in my report cards and in my grades and I received a scholarship, but they don’t see all these things and they still make comments. But you shouldn’t care about such people.

Q. What impact are you looking to create by doing what you love?
Ans. There have been many of my juniors and my cousins who are getting into colleges and they seem really confused about what to choose and they have been coming to me for counselling. So I have been telling them that you should do whatever your heart tells you to do because everybody has their own lives and everybody wants to live it their own way. Regardless of what your parents ask you to take up, you will always end up doing what you actually like in some form or the other. So in that way I want to tell people that it is of course hard to do what you love, but also it gives you a sense of satisfaction. Also I want my field of Communication Design to impact the education sector and bring a positive change to it. Being a communication designer I would want to design better text books for students so that everything is properly explained in them and they don’t have to buy extra reference books.

What Really Happens When You Are At Your Lowest?

IMG_2398

If you are a part of Human Circle and Young India Challenge, you know that our core is mostly around understanding passion, finding purpose and fuflfilling it by all means. The vibes of this organisation fills you with motivation and courage. Every person who is a part of this system has a story to share and is expanding this movement of #DoWhatYouLove in his/her own capacity. All the while we have heard stories of people, who have started their journeys, faced tough times and came out stronger and that just gives us so much hope that we are willing to take thousand fights for our goal. But what really happens when you are at your lowest?

I am at one such phase. Two years ago, I dropped out of CA and MBA to pursue my passion for Travel Journalism. It was all going smooth and as planned until I couldn’t get my second job despite having a confirmation email because of some administrative foul plays. I discovered this element after I had resigned from my first job and moved to my hometown for this one. I used all possible jacks to get this going but after a point I didn’t feel like rather I prayed that it doesn’t work out anymore so that I can get out of this place and find a better job. Finally, I gave up, not on my purpose but on this one particular job. The joblessness made me browse for a thousand options and rediscover my passion. It wasn’t travel journalism anymore. For most of the time I felt that’s because this one thing didn’t work out as I planned and probably that’s making me feel so but soon I asked myself this one question – “Why did I want to do Travel Journalism?”. The answer was disturbingly very shallow “Because it’s cool, I will be travelling, enjoying and earning”. Not that enjoying, earning and travelling aren’t sufficient reasons for someone to follow it but I couldn’t trace elements of personal growth or impact I’d be making in this thought.

As a traveller, I had come across various social, economic and environmental issues faced by communities at large and honestly, I did have a plan to work somewhere in those lines but that was 10-15 years from now and also very unsure because I was holding myself saying that I was meant to travel, write stories, and not really do social work, etc. But this void gave me a reason to explore these options now and it hasn’t been bad at all. I discovered almost 100 new organisations, connected with over 50 people and gave myself a chance to explore something new.

IMG_8975

I had been scared to deviate from my path this time because I had already done that once and my family didn’t react well. Even today, I have to explain them that I don’t want to MBA or UPSC. But I understood this fine difference between being passionate and being stubborn. Let your thoughts flow, don’t block an idea because you had been determent about one thing. Probably, the second, the third, or the fifteenth idea is worth giving a shot! In my case, what could I do other than sit and explore. No, I didn’t choose to travel because I had invested all my savings and I have always seen my journeys as a reward to me, which I will only take when I’m earning next or do something worthy.

It’s been 3 months that I haven’t found a job. I rejected some, some rejected me. I signed up for a couple of courses to give myself an understanding of sustainable development, climate change and public policy (my new interests!). Interestingly, I am learning French (although I was planned to learn Spanish or Urdu, but I am letting life happen) because sitting at home was making me sick. With time, I am sure I will come across new opportunities and if they deduce to some reasoning, I will incorporate them too but since I am growing, another thing which is crucial is finance. Not that it’s my first priority but definitely the second. Why it shouldn’t be? Is money bad? No. You have got to pay your bills, travel the world, invest, grow, live a lavish life and wishing for all of this is not a sin, so accept that you want money and have a vision for yourself where you are abundant and content.

It’s too early for me to say what I see myself doing in a year or two because I am considering so many options! But never ever underestimate hard work and vision. I am going with the flow not because I gave up because I am rediscovering myself and this is important too. And when you find where your heart is, please do everything in your capacity to dig deeper and understand its intricacies.

Let me tell you this phase hasn’t been easy for me. I had been in depression, I would cry most of the time because days would just pass by and nothing was materialising, had fights with family, dearest of friends. At one point of time all my balancing pillars (career, family, emotional) were disturbed and I almost had an anxiety attack because I felt so worthless and unwanted. My friends have been my true support system all this while. A person like me needs to listen from others that it’s all okay, though, this period has also empowered me to be my own self sufficient support system so that I don’t rely on my friends when things go down the rail but nonetheless, I am more than grateful to have them and all these really close friendships I have earned in Human Circle. So if you think that this place only helps you grow professionally, then you’re wrong. It gives you relations for lifetime and the vibes itself will fill you with so much of happiness, love and motivation that you cannot even think of giving up.

Now that I am talking about it, I would like to mention these special friends and thank them for being there for me all throughout – Madhav Sharma, Bhavya Arora, Saksham Gupta and Sakshi Tyagi. Thank you so much and I love you all.

Don’t define Diabetic desserts

20864579_10209480166587493_1794160346_n

Harsh Kedia, a 21 year old from Mumbai, is a passionate Diabetic Chef.  He was told at the age of 15 that he had diabetes. The doctors gave him a long list of things which he couldn’t eat. This meant no carbs, no sugar, no fats and no desserts. After getting irritated with people treating him as i he had a life threatening disease, he decided to take a step and change all this. He did his homework and started crafting delicious delicacies that were specially for diabetics and that gave birth to his Facebook page – ‘A diabetic Chef.’

With ‘A diabetic Chef’, Harsh aims help other diabetic who he knows would go through the same dilemma he went through. We got a chance to chat with him and he happily answered a few questions for us.

Here’s a snippet of our chat with Harsh.

Q1. When and how did you discover your passion for cooking and baking?

Ans. I fell in love with cooking since 3rd grade. Kitchen was my ‘play-ground’. Well my heart was broken when at the age of 15 doctors discovered that I had diabetes hence “do not eat this do not eat that” and so on. That is when I decided he had to change this. I took a list of things I could eat and based on that I did my homework and started crafting delicious delicacies that were specially for diabetics and that gave birth to my Facebook page – ‘A diabetic Chef.’

Q2. How difficult was it to convince your parents about your passion for cooking? How have they taken it?

Ans. Family initially didn’t get the idea of it and weren’t comfortable but now they’ve come to terms with it.

Q3. What is other people’s reaction to ‘A diabetic Chef’? How did you come up with the idea for this?

Ans. People reacted very variably. It wasn’t all that easy initially, insults, demeaning and hate messages all came in. But well who cares right? It didn’t exactly bring me down it just gave me motivation to work harder each day.

Diabetic Chef came up when I was 16 and was told I wasn’t allowed to eat sweets and food outside my house, I took my passion and setbacks as a push to start something against the idea that diabetics can’t do everything. This includes eating what they want!

The concept of a diabetic chef came up as an insult when I was baking brownies at home and a friend asked me you’re baking desserts who are you a diabetic chef?

Q4. How has your experience been, being associated with the DoWhatYouLove Movement?

Ans. Being associated with YIC has been a wonderful journey for me. I’ve met one of the most talented people I know, I have interacted with ever. I met Wioleta and Kamal who are fantastic poeple who motivate young entrepreneurs’ like me and help us grow. I’ve come to terms with myself greatly after YIC and well, I do what I love now. The sticker given to us by YIC of the #DoWhatYouLove is stuck on my laptop ever since. Keeps reminding me to go harder every day!

Q5. What inspires you to DoWhatYouLove?

Ans.  A lot of struggles actually. Body shaming, fat shaming, colour shaming, effeminate behavior shamed. NOT BEING ABLE TO EAT OUTSIDE! Not being able to talk to people. Getting pittied by these lame relatives has always and will always help me do what I love.

The push back has been the push through of this.

“Life is and always will be a beautiful struggle!”

SHOULD CAREER BE A CHOICE OR A JOICE?

1402402239phpo0UsYd

The job you seek isn’t out there in some job description, it’s already inside you, aching to get out.
-John Tarnoff

It’s the time of the year when students are bombarded with questions! A 10th pass is asked about the field he wants to choose. Infact, he’s pestered with the myth of science being the best, commerce secondary and arts; the field for the lazy bums! Their talent remains unseen in front of their grades. A graduate is plagued with questions about employment, one with employment faces family and one with family about their future. And the cycle goes on!

People generally interchange the terms ‘Competition’ and ‘Comparison’. In the race of competing with a child’s colleague, parents start comparing their child’s calibre with a totally different child! Which is totally preposterous! There are parents who understand the freedom of choice and allow their children to make their own path. But, speaking about our country, India, majority of the population still needs to accept the raw truth that there are careers other than engineering, doctorate and few others to name!

To be honest, this is just a tip of an iceberg. There are thousands of stones to be turned around. This may sound too liturgical, but it is a fact; we have only one life, then why not live it happily instead of living a life full of regrets? There may be situations where you badly need to support your family, you wanna earn money apace, you cannot oppose your elders decision and many more, but, it depends on you what you wanna choose! Whatever it might be, if you regret, drop it, if you can’t, stop complaining about it!

I am one of the victim who couldn’t choose their career or maybe could not oppose anyone to do what I love and I did complain about it. A lot! But then, my choice was to do my best wherever I am, and I think I am pretty much doing that. And about my passion, I am doing that as well. What I believe is, if it is really your passion, you’ll do that, by hook or by crook.

It’s high time, people should accept the term called “Joice” otherwise known as a Juicy Choice. It is a choice in which no matter what you choose, the outcome will be juicy and enjoyable. This is the time, you really need to listen to everybody, but do what is good to your mind, soul and body!

The choice of your career may be a one day game, but if you don’t choose it wisely that’s enough to pull all your veins!

Frankenstein’s Monster

earthrise-over-plastic

Hi, I’m a Frankenstein’s Monster.
Made by you, used by you
To ultimately destroy you and your habitat.
I was produced to fulfill one of your many needs,
But over the time,
So obsessively useful I became,
That soon I was all around the places.
In every nook and corner,
In every small little things.
Every day, Everywhere!

hqdefault

I’ve become the cancer in the throat of the drains,
In the belly of the mud,
In the veins of the water,
Refusing to be decomposed,
Adamant and stubborn,
Flying in the air.

Over the years, I’ve become
One of the strongest enemies of your Mother Earth,
And it will take a lifetime for her to wipe me out.
While I continue to choke,
Its saplings, its animals,
Its humans, its oceans and its breath.
Yes! I’m the plastic. I’m the plastic.

1225401-061146-4x229015

In this world expenses are new sky rockets,
I’m here the cheapest.
Survival is getting difficult,
I’m exchanged freely.
Do you have any idea of
what danger are you throwing yourselves into?

Coffee is drunk in plastic cups,
Food is eaten in plastic plates.
They are used and thrown freely.
Like offered to God, served to the poor,
And dumped in the Earth.

Stagnant I stand,
Suffocated I lie,
Rotten less and Compost free,
Breeding with a pace of tones per hour,
Choking the Earth breath by breath.
O wise humans, O wisest of them all
Have you really made a benefiting call?

THE DU CUT-OFF SYSTEM: PRESERVE OR GIVE A CHANCE TO THOSE WHO DESERVE?

170123011846_delhi-university

“When you take the free will out of education, that turns it into schooling.”
-John Taylor Gatto

Education is basically meant to make an individual ready to live successfully in the corporate world. Technologies were made by humans with a thought to ease the lifestyle, but unfortunately it surpassed its creator, making them their slave. Today, humans are arrested under their creation and as the tradition follows, the pressure is always on the next generation.

A child is the ‘lab rat’ for his parents, his teachers and elder siblings (if any). The dreams that remain unfulfilled by the elders are forced onto the young one’s! The pressure they are imposed to, kill their unique creative minds. Right from the age of three they are taught to stand straight, learn alphabets, stop dreaming and focus on printed books. By giving them pen in 5th, they are taught not to make mistakes. The 8 am to 2 pm schooling becomes a part of their life. They are taught but not educated.

A fear is choked into them to score the highest to get admitted to the top most colleges. When they fail to do so, they give up on life or worse, give up on living happily! Competitions are meant to be healthy, but now they have become a business. The best evidence for this is the cut off system of Delhi University, as known to everybody that is 97 %. Everyone is uniquely talented: a thing every human has forgotten I suppose. DU is just one example of this educational disaster. There are thousands unnoticed.

du2

If we really want to emphasize on equality, this system has to be changed. If we really want to bring out the best in students, give them equal rights! Maybe, a bright student couldn’t make up well in his boards, his dream might be to study from such university! But he’s rejected just because he could not reach the cut off! That’s unfair!

I, being an average student, never dreamt of such high institutions. But I do know people who get depressed as they couldn’t study in the college they wished for and so opted for another course or another college knowing they have to live a life full of adjustments! Hence, taking out the “free will” from their life!

Almost every foreign country has a system of considering their public at first position whatever comes. I do appreciate that. Similarly, if DU gives some allotted seats to the students from delhi would be no wrong. But the rest of the seats should be given to the deserving! I vote for the common entrance test system which gives equal opportunity for everyone.

Even if DU takes a public vote on their cut-off system, I am pretty much sure they’re going to get disappointed. Consider it as a request or an apprehension, kindly change such system. Give life to our education system and I assure we’ll get more number of Einstein’s and Obama’s!

Just give some time and think- Do we want to preserve the age old system of Cut – Offs or do we really want to give a chance to the students who actually deserve?

The Journey of #DoWhatYouLove by Wioleta Burdzy Seth

Banana dance.jpg

Wioleta is an entrepreneur, trainer and life coach from Poland. She is the co-founder and chief operating officer of Human Circle. She delivers personal growth, leadership and skill development workshops and coaching to a diverse set of audience. Previously she was a specialist in human resource areas like training, recruitment and learning and development. She has worked in several multi-national companies like Statoil
and INDITEX.

Wioleta considers herself as a life long learner and explorer. She loves travelling and has been to more than 25 countries. After studying and working in  several countries like Greece, Poland, Belgium, Great Britain and India, she is currently based in India and pursuing her mission to create an impact on the young generation. She is passionate about raising the self-awareness of individuals to follow their passion.

Here’s a snippet where Wioleta happily answered some of the questions we asked her.

Q1. What was the idea and motivation that drove you to shift from Poland to India?
Ans. I did not come to India directly from Poland, it was a journey. I was looking for a more meaningful lifestyle. 9-5 job, companies targets, pay cheques each month were not giving me this kind of satisfaction.  It was clear for me that if I want to get different results I need to do things in a different way.  One day I made a decision “I am ready to explore other options” and I moved to Greece.  From one decision to another, from one project to another, life brought me currently to India.

Q2. For many people there are certain moments when they decide that they want to do a particular thing in their lives. People don’t usually think of creating an impact on the young generation. When was it that you decided to pursue the mission to create an impact on the young generation?
Ans. When I started questioning the worth of my life, the reason I am here and what legacy I would like to leave behind, I came to realize that there are so many things I am passionate about. One of the things is that, I would love to see more fulfilled and happy people around me. For it to happen, I need to contribute with my own work. Therefore, I started with young people who have most of their life ahead, and important decisions to be made. I wish they make the best decisions based on their best knowledge and self awareness.

Q3. In what way do you think #DoWhatYouLove Movement helps to bring a change in someone’s life?
Ans. The strength of the movement lies within the people of a community. Our life choices are determined in a big way by the circumstances, and circumstances are made by people who are involved in them. If you decide to spend more time with the right kind of people that would create favourable circumstances and more opportunities, inspirations.

Eg. If you spend most of your time with people who only complain, who are scared to fail, worry about other people’s opinions – such people will always find a way to pull you down, to prove you that you won’t make it big. They are able to teach you only what they know – how to complain and be mediocre and vulnerable to others opinions.

The #DoWhatYouLove Movement:

  • Helps to connect with like minded people who want more from life, who want to create something bigger than themselves. Support and motivating system.
  • Helps to connect with people who “have been there, have done that” so that they could be a relevant source of guidance and advice.
  • Helps to ask better, bigger questions about our life and purpose
  • Helps to shift focus from “What should I do” to “What do I choose to do”

_MG_8778.JPG

Q4.  How has your experience been being associated with the #DoWhatYouLove Movement?
Ans. In India I am mainly surrounded by young people and entrepreneurs.

  • Joy of being connected with so many fabulous people who are driven by their passion. Grow together as we get more experience and explore new possibilities. Spreading seeds of curiosity and striving for excellence. Seeing others reaching heights motivates me to work more.
  • I have also realized that DWYL is not for everyone. There are people who value stability, predictability, and that is all perfectly fine for them. Everyone has his/her own journey and free will to decide what is the best for his/her.

Q5. What inspires you to be a part of #DoWhatYouLove?
Ans. People. It makes me extremely happy and grateful to see how the movement is growing. So many people want to create impact and are willing to support one another to get closer to their mission.
