Describe an important conversation that influenced you
You may say.
- To whom you did conversation?
- How was he/she good in explanation?
- Why I am influenced by his/her conversation?
I’ve had many conversations with different people when I was doing a master’s in arts and culture. In our university, there was one faculty who used to entertain us all the time. I used to have engaging conversations with him during lunchtime. He is Dr. Kanade Mukherjee, professor of Indian art and culture.
He has immense knowledge of Indian culture and traditions. Whenever he talks to the students, he never gets annoyed to clarify their doubts. He has been a great inspiration for me. He has no family pressure; he only lives with his grandfather, a great mathematician. Apart from Indian art and craft, he knew British culture and economy.
I used to get very motivated and inspired by his teaching. He used to give each one of us extra time to know about every chapter in depth. For example, before my mid-exam, I was unable to understand one chapter of Indian crafts. He gave me such a fascinating lecture that I was unable to forget it even after my exam. He discussed what happened to Indian art and craft during the British colonial period. Indian artists slowly understood the characteristics of British paintings and used romanticism with soft texture and tones with a brush. He also discussed how the Britishers used a lot of Indian tools and cultures in their country to expand the economy and tradition. He used to give me running notes with his lecture that helped in constructing answers correctly.
