A Funambulist’s journey towards self-transformation Gorank’s journey
Gorank Jain, Gandhi Fellowship Alumnus, batch 2016-18, currently working with the Gandhi Fellowship marketing & recruitment team reminisces what led him to join Gandhi Fellowship and his learning duri
After completing my studies in International Business from Pune University, like most of the individuals out there, I was also looking for different opportunities that could help me acquire wisdom. By the time I was done with my course, every friend of mine had started working with different companies. On the contrary, I was unsure of things that I wanted to do in my life. From working as a stockbroker in the US-based equity start-up to working with KPMG as a financial analyst, to working with different IT companies as a Business development executive, I’ve had all the awful tasting medicines in my life. One day while browsing the internet, I came across the Gandhi Fellowship Program. I found the curriculum of the program unique with exciting processes like Vipassana, Community immersion, etc. and decided to apply for the program seeking self-transformation.
Gandhi Fellowship was an exhilarating experience filled with adventure, challenges and a lot of learning! The program through its unique processes helped me to come out of my comfort zone. Moreover, my peers helped me become a better version of my own self each day. In my opinion, it’s a platform to test all the disruptive ideas and do things that really matter. The program has fulfilled my insatiable hunger for self-development and transformed me into an individual who is no more afraid of risks and failures. It was through the journey of daily action/reflection that I was able to figure out my mission in life- “To bring about a positive impact in the lives of people through Marketing.”
Marketing can either make or break things. I believe it’s the most powerful force which drives an individual from absolute uncertainty towards absolute certainty. Just imagine, a world without Marketing. Without marketing, an organization is more like a one-legged man in a contest. Apart from Marketing, I am also interested in value investing, startups, reading, and solo traveling. Gandhi Fellowship has taught me that there are only 2 golden rules to acquire worldly wisdom.
Rule no. 1: Keep learning, no matter what!
Rule no. 2: Never forget Rule no. 1
Interacting with a group of college students
Currently, I am working with the Marketing and Recruitment team of the Gandhi Fellowship Program. To date, I have impacted the lives of more than 5000+ students from top A/A+ colleges of the country, letting them know about this unique journey of self-discovery, reflection, purpose, and transformational leadership through workshops, focused group discussions, Gandhi Fellowship talks, events, and competitions. I would like to thank all my beautiful peers for helping me become a better version of myself.
