Episode 036 FindingTheVoices : Bhumenjoy Konsam sharing about following his passion in his choice of career

I am proud to present the voice of Bhumenjoy Konsam, Director of Manipuri animated movie Keibu-kei-oiba (The man who turns into a tiger). This is a podcast  (in Meitei-Lon/Manipuri language) and in this episode Bhumenjoy shares about himself, about how his career shaped from studying from Chemistry to Multimedia, choosing career between a low paying Multimedia job versus a Govt. Job in the Indian Army. Even though it was a difficult path to follow, choosing his passion, despite raising eyebrows from friends and relatives in leaving the traditional path, Bhumenjoy followed his passion with his Father’s support.

Bhumenjoy shares interesting details about the multimedia course, his experience in his work and his thought process on choosing his passion or doing a JOB !! He left his job in between to pursue what he wants which lead him to making the movie  Keibu-kei-oiba with his friends. He shares details about career prospect in Multimedia.

This is a very inspiring story to follow your dream career path, despite all odds, a path which you are passionate about and which you like rather than being pressured into following the expected traditional path which you don’t like.

Please continue to tune in to listen to Episode 037 FindingTheVoices :  Bhumenjoy Konsam sharing about making of the Manipuri animated movie Keibu-kei-oiba which covers very interesting details of behind the scene in making the Manipuri animated movie Keibu-kei-oiba.

Episode 010 FindingTheVoices : Part 1 Armstrong Pame, IAS officer from Tamenglong sharing the journey in making the 100 KM Road in Manipur without any help or funding from the Government

010 FindingTheVoices Part 1 Armstrong Pame IAS officer from Tamenglong sharing the journey in making the 100 KM Road in Manipur without any help or funding from the Government

Today I am with Armstrong Pame from Tousem sub-division, tamenglong district in Manipur, India. He is an IAS (Indian Administrative Service) officer serving as Sub-divisional Officer. He also was an assistant commissioner In the Indian Revenue Service. And most recently he has initiated a very inspiring initiative of making a 100 km road in Manipur with no funding or help coming from the government, a story which have touched people’s heart all over the world …

This year, with the outbreak of diseases like typhoid and malaria, It took two days for anyone in the village to make it to the nearest hospital on foot in the absence of a motorable road. Hundreds of patients were carried on bamboo stretchers, and very few made it to the town alive.  And town doctors were unwilling to come to the village because of its inaccessible terrain. Frustrated with the situation with no response from the government, Armstrong Pame turned to his family and well wishers and initiated the project of making the 100 km Tamenglong – Haflong Road Construction in August this year and targeted to be completed by Christmas this year.

Please contribute and help in making the wish of Armstrong Pame in giving the gift of the Road this christmas for all the villagers and childrens. Please refer to the facebook group for more details or contact 91 9953029135. 

I am proud to present the voice of Armstrong Pame, the voice requested by many listeners of FindingTheVoices, the VOICE we want to hear and should be heard. The podcast is divided into 2 parts. This episode, Part 1 focuses on his introduction and journey from Tamenlong to becoming an IAS officer.

One of the goal for FindingTheVoices is to increase the exposure of different career and job options for young students particularly students in Manipur. I have spoken to many students and the popular career options are to become a Doctor, Engineer or IAS officer. These are great career options, I myself am a Computer Science Engineer, but there are lot of other options.

Out of which Doctor is the most popular amongst the students (and also the parents !!). Students go for extensive tutions and even wait for 2 to 3 years to get into the entrance exam. There are cases where the students become depressed, loose self esteem and stray away on the event of failures on multiple attempts.
