 Creativity is what drives an individual to do something out of the ordinary and mundane. The creativity in a person makes them look for a novel solution for ordinary things which makes these ordinary things become something extraordinary.


 

  • Tell us something about yourself.

Design has been an integral part of my life from day one. I did my schooling from a village in West Bengal called Taki, which is about 76 kilometers from Kolkata. I discontinued further studies after 12th standard. I learnt painting and drawing in school and got hooked to it. The love for design was imbued in me since those days. I started my career from a computer hardware store, where I used to assemble PCs. Later, I met with a young entrepreneur at that time around 2005 and I joined a new software consultancy company in Bhutan. The company shifted base to Kolkata and I shifted as well.
I worked at InSync for 6 years and during this period; I handled a number of different roles right from domain hosting & selling to web designing & development. For a while I was even part of the SAP Business One ERP team at InSync.
Finally, I felt that this is not something I can do for the rest of my life. I wanted to make my passion (Design) a profession. At the time when I left my job, my child was 6 months old and it was a really difficult decision that I had to make. I tried working as a freelance designer for a while, post quitting my job. But, being an unknown entity, very few assignments came my way.

  • As a Creative Director, what are your duties?

a) Work, motivate and lead my team in every projects.

b) Communicate with my clients.

c) Watch out that 100% quality is delivered.

 

  • What is your definition for creativity?

“Passion + Idea + Innovation”
Creativity is what drives an individual to do something out of the ordinary and mundane. The creativity in a person makes them look for a novel solution for ordinary things which makes these ordinary things become something extraordinary.


  • Is creativity inborn or can be learnt through training?

Creativity is obviously an inspired, acquired trait. But I also believe people can show flashes of creativity from a very early age if they have that creative spark in them which they hone in later life and turn out to do something extraordinary with their life.

 

  • What qualities you see for apart from the required academic qualification while recruiting a person?

When I hire any person, I look for a natural aptitude for the work and a smart, creative and spontaneous mind who is passionate about whatever they do.

 

  • What is your philosophy towards work?

My philosophy is very simple. Team works better than individual. I treat every person in my team as the same irrespective of their designation. We all have a very mutually respectful view towards each other.

 

  • Name 3 qualities of prime importance that a manager should possess. 

If I had to choose any 3 qualities, they would be :                                  

a) Professional charm and charisma.

b) Thoughtfulness and understanding.

c) Communication and convincing skill.

 

  • Do the name of the institute one pursuing his/her graduation/post graduation or any other course counts for getting job in a reputed concern?                                                                                                                

Maybe some people do think so but my answer is no. I myself have very humble backgrounds and I want to prove to people that if given a chance, anyone can shine. As I clearly said before, it’s more about the individual’s dedication, passion and spontaneity that matters.

 

  • What message would you like to give to the management students?

To all management students, you have chosen a great field of study and what is best about is that there is always something new to learn everyday. If you have the hunger to learn new exciting things then you are in the right stream.

 

BMS.co.in is an ideal platform for all management students.
