Meet our Talents #2



Oprah Winfrey, an American media executive, television producer and philanthropist says, “The biggest adventure you can take is to live the life of your dreams.” Well, as I went through this quote, I found an introspect question: Are we living the life of our dreams? Or are we simply surviving? If we are living the life of our dreams, then this Earth is no less than a Paradise, but if we are simply surviving, then we must introspect and make our life meaningful, enjoyable and worth living. So, the person who lives with their passion and enjoys every bit of life really grabs our attention and gives us an opportunity to examine, introspect our own life when we relate to them.

Without much philosophical speculation, I’m here with Meet Our Talents #2 where I will write about Mr Aadarsh Chhetri, a young man, who has certainly grabbed our attention with his passionate lifestyle. He was born on 29th April 1996. He is the son of Mr Kaziman Chhetri and Ms Kamala Upreti. He completed his schooling from TNA, Gangtok, graduation from Sikkim Manipal University and is pursuing his post-graduation from SRM University.

I know him for the past three years. He is a man of calm personality with a cheerful outlook. He is making up his mind to take teaching as his profession in near future. Apart from his studies, he has an interest in acting and then film making. Now, he is the Co-founder of AS Presentations (which certainly has given him an identity of his own).

Right from his childhood, Aadarsh was interested in acting and did mimicry of actors, his teachers and friends. He took part in the drama held at the school events. He got a break-through when he was selected for the TV Serial ‘Samarpan,’ and also got a lead role in the movie “Dui Bakra Rekha,” telecasted on DD North East. He also took part and won in various Inter-College Short Film Competitions in his college days. He received “Pride of Humanities 2018” and “Best Student Award” when he graduated from Manipal University, a testimony of his hard work and dedication.

After forming AS Presentations, a film making house along with his friend Sunny Pradhan, Aadarsh dedicated his leisure time for his passion-Acting and Film Making, where he started learning and experimenting with new things. His production house has filmed many videos, of which, the most trending is ‘Gangtok ko Jam.’ He has started receiving many offers for video making, and has many more plans for the future. He wants to make more short films on contemporary issues and also want to participate in the different International Short Film Contest in the near future. For youngsters, he says that they should balance their studies and passion to live in the moment with full energy.

So, this is the story of talented Adarsh, Co-founder of AS Presentation and a Master student, who is, in fact, living his life of dream and is perfectly balancing it with his present responsibility. Now, the question is-Can we live the life of our dreams? Can we balance things in life? Let’s introspect.
