Bloggerati of the Fortnight: Abhijit Bhaduri

Blogging is something which anyone can take up. It is not limited to people who are very articulate or very    influential. Although, if you have a knack of using the right words, you will make a better connection with your readers and one such person is, Abhijit Bhaduri.

Mr. Bhaduri works as the Chief Learning Officer for the Wipro group. This Economics graduate from SRCC, New Delhi also has a degree in law and has done Post Graduation in Human Resources from Xavier Labour Relations Institute, Jamshedpur. A theater lover and an actor himself, Abhijit has written several books, hosted a radio show in US and is on the Advisory Board of Wharton’s prestigious program for Chief Learning Officers that is run by the University of Pennsylvania. He is also an advisor on Social Media usage for SHRM in India.

With a career that has seen him work with corporate giants such as Microsoft, PepsiCo, Colgate and Tata Steel, his writing is as distinct from corporate language as day is to night. His writing comes across as simple, elegant and nostalgic. Of course it helps that Abhijit is an accomplished cartoonist. His writing almost always paints the exact picture that you would associate with the words you are reading.

When you have a snow storm brewing outside, being indoors next to the
fireside is the closest to Heaven one can get.”

So complete is his word illustration that it drives you to think what the result or the outcome of such an event would be. More importantly, it makes you want to experience the words in real life, experience the eventuality of the words.

Raga Bhatiyar is a raga you listen to as you are still in bed,
in that half asleep half awake state. Almost like what the first day of the calendar feels like.
A little hazy as you still dwell on the last year gone by before you wonder what
lies ahead as the year unfolds.”

His writing is simple. His reactions even simpler. Not the one to shy away from calling a spade a spade, he can drive home the point in a manner most of us will struggle to explain. A classic technique of writing   for the man on the road works brilliantly.

“When he turned director in 2007 with Tare Zameen Par, he made the nation’s parents
feel guilty about living their dreams through their children.”

What works best with Abhijit’s writing is his ability to break complex things down to simplest communication blocks. Blocks which are easy to understand but very difficult to forget. It is this ability of the writer that leaves a lasting impression on his readers mind.

“We are continuously making choices and living with the consequences of making those choices. There are moments when we make a choice and a moment later wish that we could start again.”

The magic with Abhijit Bhaduri’s writing lies in his desire to live an experience and share it with others in the same way as he felt it. And that also makes him our first Bloggerati of the Fortnight.
