Hobby Series - Shaishav writes to stimulate thoughts

alt In an age where the CAT score defines the success of an individual, many lost touch with their inner selves. While many didn't.

This series is going to be an effort to explore what made certain people stay in touch with their true selves by sticking to their passions or hobbies. 

We hope it inspires other MBA's to revive their long gone passion and manifest in a form of a hobby.

We reached out to Shaishav Amrut Solanki from IIM Indore this time      

        What is the Hobby that you pursue?

I write to stimulate thoughts and it’s my desire to change the world. More information about me can be found on my website: www.shaishavsolanki.com

        From how long have you been pursuing it?

 

It has been around 3 years; and in these 3 years, I have been able to takealt mywriting skills to the national level by publishing a full-fledged novel - ‘MISSION KNOWN’ - in Novemeber 2011. And I’m currently working on my second book – ‘What is Love?’

 

How much time in a week are you able to devote to it?

There is no hard and fast rule for the number of hours one needs to dedicate; however, I do set my self deadlines and I see to it that I finish things within the timelimit.

4)   How do you manage to maintain a balance between the MBA course and your hobby?

One needs to set his priorities and work accordingly. I’m an MBA student during daytime and an author during night. I don’t let both these things interfere with each other; however, things learnt from one field can always be applied to the other. Honestly speaking, it is taxing to manage both the tasks but when you’re able to do it right the rewards are lucrative.

5)   Does pursuing the hobby in fact help you perform better in academics?

My hobby is such that it has always helped me understand the world around me in a better manner. When things get unusually busy (like the time during November 2011, when my book was released) it does hamper your performance a bit. But on an overall basis, being an author has given me a better perspective of my academic life.

6)   Would you let go of the hobby if you start to face a time crunch?

I believe one loses his identity when he stops pursuing his hobbies. So one should never let go of their hobbies. As I said, it’s all about priorities; so, instead of giving up my hobby, I would rather put a soujourn on performing the less priority tasks.

7)   What would you like to say to those who have let go of their passion plainly to focus on academics.

There is a saying: “What do you know of academics if you only academics know?”. No matter where you go in this world, everybody requires people with diverse talents and multiple areas of expertise. So excelling in academics, even though necessary, is not sufficient. To shine in life, one must get bold enough to follow his heart.
