GUWAHATI, Dec 16: Sharing his saga from an English literature student to an architect, and filly to music that gave him me and fame, Papon has got his message across the youth in Assam – follow your passion, not just as a profession.

Talking to this reporter in the sidelines of Sigture Startup in Guwahati on Saturday, singer Angarag Papon Mahanta said, “People should follow their passion, instead of just a profession. ‘My Mark, My Sigture’ launched by Diago is an online platform to inspire talented individuals to convert their passion to paychecks.”

“It will bring out stories of real life individuals who, driven by their dreams, passion and commitment, have made their marks in various fields. This will bring to the audience the stories of various people famous in their own fields as to how they could scale such heights from being a ordiry human beings; they became extraordiry in their fields. The objective of startup is to inspire people to follow their passion.” Papon added. Papon said that the support of parents in letting their children follow their passion, their dreams is the most important.

“My parents wanted me to follow music, but they wanted me to be in literature for being a professor as well. But, things are changing. Earlier the things used to be different. Parents were focused in making their children doctors, engineers or professors. But now from the experience of being a mentor in a singing reality show I have seen that nowadays parents are supporting their children to pursue their dreams. They’re setting them free to decide their career, and that is a very good sign,” Papon added. The singer also rrated as to how his parents served as a constant source of inspiration for him to be a singer and that he has been relentlessly trying to bring back the songs of his parents and also to get intertiol fans for the folk music of Assam.
