Amod Deshpande

Exploring possibilities is what life is all about. Trying out new and different things becomes a habit when one starts to think like that. It has enabled me to explore music, acoustics, filmmaking, teaching, research, entrepreneurship etc. Every project then becomes fun and every relation you make on the way is a long lasting one.

That is my summary in a nutshell.
