When you reach the peak of professional success, life becomes really monotonous. You start losing interest in the things that you like doing, as it becomes more and more repetitive. As a result, people start losing interest in life, start going through an existential crisis. So, in order to regain perspective in life, one should go back to the basics, get close to nature. This helps in getting an inner realization of the intricacies of life, says the Indian background music director, Mr. Shantanu Moitra. He has composed a lot of popular songs for the Hindi film industry. Shantanu Moitra is an award-winning music director from Lucknow, India. Born in a traditional Bengali musical family, he always had an inclination towards music. As a teenager, he was the lead singer of a band. After graduating from Deshbandhu College with a degree in Economics, he started his career as a client servicing executive at an ad agency, while music remained a hobby. He started composing music for advertising jingles and many of his jingles were instant hits. He has also composed music for several hit Bollywood movies including ‘3 idiots’, 'Parineeta’, and ‘Lage Raho Munnabhai’. His work in the Telugu film, ‘Na Bagaaru Talli’ helped him win the National Film Award for Best Music Direction. Shantanu’s spiritual side urged him to embark on a 100-day long journey across the Himalayas. Shantanu is a musical genius, who continues to inspire us with his incredible skills as a music director. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at https://www.ted.com/tedx
