Rahul Subramanian, Kumar Varun, Abhishek Upmanyu, Sumit Anand, Rahul Dua, all these names have two things in common. One, they all are MBA grads and were in a well-paying job before entering the stand-up ecosystem. Second, they all are pursuing their second career, that is of course, Stand-up comedy.
After a point in our career, a lot of us ask ourselves an existential question: Am I doing the right thing that I always wanted to? What happened to the debater or writer or dancer inside me? Why can't I just pursue my passion? And, with these looming questions, one starts searching for their ‘Second Career'.
To help us with the second career equation today, we have Diptakirti Chaudhuri, who is a ‘Salesman by the day & writer by night'. Later he shifted to 'Marketing by the day and Films by night'. Diptakirti who is an XLRI alumnus & currently working as the Vice President Marketing for Bajaj Auto has found a way to balance both his first & second careers.
He has thrived in both his careers. As a marketer, where he has served brands like Marico, PepsiCo. On the other, as a writer, where he has written six books & runs a famous blog named 'Calcutta Chromosome'.
In our latest episode of Konversations In Quarantine, Diptakirti will discuss about, why a second career is important, how one should approach it if they think they can turn their hobby into a passion.
