What is a fun fact about yourself that people might not know?

 Sarang AgarkarMy surname is very notable due to one of the freedom fighters & educationists, “Mr. Gopal Ganesh Agarkar”. People used to keep in mind my surname because of him. My friends often call out my surname only.

What are some of your hobbies or interests?

The arts have always been a profound passion of mine, extending far beyond mere hobbies. Drawing and painting serve as channels through which I express my innermost thoughts, emotions, and ideas. Each stroke on a blank canvas brings me immense joy as I employ diverse techniques and mediums to create artwork that is both visually captivating and deeply meaningful. Whether I am capturing the beauty of nature, delving into abstract concepts, or portraying the human form, my artistic skills serve as a means to communicate and forge connections with others on a profound level.

In addition to my dedication to visual arts, I have also developed a keen interest in the Cajon instrument. Originating from Peru, this versatile percussion instrument has captivated my attention with its rich rhythmic possibilities. Through devoted practice and exploration, I have honed my skills, delving into various beats and patterns, and fully immersing myself in the vibrant world of percussion. Playing the Cajon grants me a rhythmic outlet, enabling me to express myself through the universal language of music.

Before working here, what was the most unusual or interesting job you had?

Prior to joining this organization, I had the opportunity to work with an interior designer specializing in mural design. Mural designing entails the creation of large-scale, site-specific artworks that adorn walls or surfaces. This unique form of visual art combines elements of painting, storytelling, and public art to transform ordinary spaces into captivating and immersive environments.

Although my experience in mural designing deviated from my initial career path, it provided me with valuable insights and enriched my artistic repertoire. It served as a valuable stepping stone in my professional journey, allowing me to explore different facets of the creative industry and broaden my skill set. While it may not have aligned directly with my original career aspirations, it equipped me with diverse perspectives and a deeper understanding of the artistic process, which have proven to be valuable assets in my current role.
