A fab Creative Eye for Beauty-Upagupt Mohanty

Dale Carnegie once said,''Most of the important things in the world have been accomplished by people who have kept on trying when there seemed to be no hope at all''.

Since long,I have had the priviledge of travelling around and meeting many people,who touched my life with their genuine good heart,compassion,extraordinary talent.Be it during shootings,debate competitions,National,International Conferences,Poetry and Writer's Meet,Rotary meetings,visiting villages and places to address fans,students,colleges,plantation programs,award functions,events, I'm meeting many talented,gifted amazing souls,who,are touching lives with their path-breaking thoughts and talent.There is a Hero,an Icon within everybody,who with a strong will and determination have overcome undaunting challenges and have emerged Victorious and some may have lost it,but the essence of their soul has touched my life enough to making me want to tell their stories.And I want my friends all over the world to know them and as I applaud their Extraordinariness,as Oscar Wilde,once said,''Ordinary riches can be stolen: real riches cannot. In your soul are infinitely precious things that cannot be taken from you''.

It is during adversity when one can really make a big difference. But making a difference is not about being a big hero. It is simply about leaving the bathroom a little cleaner going out, than when you came in.That I had read somewhere.

Stevie Wonder once said,''We all have ability. The difference is how we use it''.

Every great advance in Life has issued from a new audacity of imagination.And Upagupt Mohanty is one such creatively imaginative soul,who has a dream of making Oriyas proud of him.With his amazing imagination and creativity,he has touched lives with his Art,by making people feel special.In ones humdrum existence,one looks for inspiration.Everybody craves to be loved and yearns for a word of encouragement,Upagupt on his own has made many experience encouragement,love and kindness.And he excels in the art of polishing a stone and bringing out its spark,with his amazing talent in editing photos with his fabulous creative eye for beauty.His edited photos of me actually made me look a lot better,adding the zing.

"Instead of giving myself reasons why I can't, I give myself reasons why I can."

Men who are resolved to find a way for themselves will always find opportunities enough; and if they do not find them, they will make them.

So,I was kind of happy to recieve some very beautifully edited photos of me as well others,and thereupon,got tremendous good response,so I chose to write a blog on my Upagupt,so asked him few questions,to which his answers are here.:::;

The previous design was somewhat cluttered and not very inviting; the conten…
