Hailing from the ‘City of Joy’, Koushik Sengupta is an inspiration for those who follow their heart and juggle successfully between their passion and profession.
He is an inspirational photographer having more than 70,000 followers on Instagram. Three years back, the trip to Dubai changed everything for him. Mesmerised by the magnificence of the destination, clicked a few photographs and uploaded it on Instagram. Within a few hours, netizens flooded his wall commending his art. There has been no looking back since then for him. Today, his vivid photography skills have earned him over 70,000 followers on Instagram. His Sony Alpha A7R3 camera captures almost anything that catches his attention- from stately buildings, picturesque landscapes to various hues of food and human expressions. The underlying depth of imagination is the hallmark of his photography. For him, photography is an inlet to self-expression, a means to channelize his energies and get creative juices flowing.
Not just photography, he also has his interest in philanthropy. He supported immediate reinstatement of Pre-Conception and Pre-Natal Diagnostic Techniques (PCPNDT) Act to save girls. He also signed a e-petition demanding an end to selective abortion and also donated generously to UNICEF for the welfare of victims of social abuse. During these unprecedented times of COVID-19, he generously donated to the PM Cares Fund and West Bengal Emergency Relief Fund in an endeavour to augment government efforts to tackle the pandemic.
The lockdown has given him an opportune time to introspect and reflect on the purpose of his life and vision. It has given him a more balanced and nuanced perspective on everything. It has also made him calmer, deeper and a more mature person.
He utilizes a part of this time on social media. He regularly organizes giveaways on Instagram to motivate people to follow their hearts. For him, social media is not only a great platform to showcase talent, share opinion and network with friends, but it is also a means of self-expression and a reflection of creative freedom. It is a potent tool to usher democratization of information and give voices to teaming millions of people.
