INDIA: The latest episode of Transcontinental Times’ 360° Live Talk Show featured Pariksheet Devulapalli, an Indian Software Engineer, Professional Wildlife Photographer, and Salesforce Architect. His multi-faceted demeanor has kept him motivated in the I.T. business for more than a decade. He has a penchant for wildlife photography and his diverse expertise in international organizations in India.
Technology shaped Pariksheet’s childhood initiating his professional life
Pariksheet has a simple anecdote to offer, full of the beautiful simplicity of infancy. Like the rest of us, he has a knack for new technology, which is human instinct. His fascination with computers and technology dates back to his childhood.
Narrating his childhood days, Pariksheet reveals, “As a kid, I was always in awe of computers and technology. Even my dad was into computers and technology. Though he came from an accounting background, he was into computers and technology, so that is what kind of developed an interest in me.”
Summer vacations are the kindling that ignites most creative spaces during childhood and thus developed a deep yearning in Pariksheet to explore his profundity in I.T. parks and hubs. So, all of these things piqued his curiosity, mainly because his cousins and family were all involved in the profession.
“Every I.T engineer or a person who is keen to work has to be eager to learn,” Pariksheet stated, “when discussing India’s primary priority areas.” Many changes are coming into the market; everyone should be informed of what’s new, what’s popular, and what they should be learning because their field of interest is what will propel them forward.”
Pariksheet takes a stab at the impact of technology on the current generation, describing the youth as being “born of technology-friendly rights.” He highlights their early days of growing up with video games, computers, and mobile phones. As a result, they have a technology-centric childhood, making them remarkably adaptable to technology.
“Even if you want to play cricket outside, you’ll need a team.” So, when we were younger, we all had the same mindsets, but now everyone is engrossed in their smartphones, tablets, iPads, and laptops,” he remarked.
Venturing on the importance of passion in engineering and life, Pariksheet states, “If you want to earn money and you are doing engineering temporarily, Unless and until you do it with passion, you won’t earn that money that you’re targeting.”
“There’s nothing wrong with having a shortcut approach, but you must perform whatever you do with dedication or enthusiasm.” So you won’t obtain the fruit until and until you do it with passion,” he emphasized.
The distinct parts of critique are born from both profession and passion
Pariksheet’s stressed-out life as an engineer birthed his passion for photography, which shaped his nature as a de-stressing path to reinvent his life; as he quotes, “I was a kid I wanted to become an I.T. engineer but once I started working it was kind of taking a stressing toll that’s where I explored wildlife photography which was kind of de-stressing way to explore life.”
Examining the narrow line between profession and passion, Pariksheet perceives it as calculative features that positively and adversely affect his skills, where he defines “keep such parameters outside of your life.” Yes, you must approach it so that you do not become engrossed in something unpleasant immediately away. You’ll become demotivated if it crosses a particular line. You must calculate it and take it in a favorable light.”
Pariksheet summarizes his photography ethos for beginners by stating that no one is born a photographer and that everyone has to start somewhere. When he gives his perspective on people buying cameras at 50 or 55, he considers retired folks to be excellent photographers. His demeanor reinforces it, as though there’s nothing wrong with starting with a smartphone.
“You could start with a simple DSLR and work your way up if you’re interested in themes like birds and animals. They’re as cheap as like 15-20k in Indian rupees,” he continued.
“There’s nothing wrong with starting with a basic camera as long as it gives you satisfaction; you don’t think about how much better the other person is doing as long as it’s gratifying you,” he concluded.
