A Rendezvous With Mamta Sehgal
Mamta Sehgal has been at the forefront of the fashion industry for last 20 years, acting as an academic mentor with the leading Fashion Institutes of the country besides hands-on experience in a multitude of designing projects. She has also been involved with Retail experience related to Fashion and has been on the panel of academic selection for NIFT on behalf of the management body –AIMA between 2007 till 2012.
After a dynamic stint in the industry, she ventured out to find a new avenue to engage and found her solace in extensive reading. Her destiny introduced her to the most important scripture of Hinduism, “The Bhagavad Gita”, and she felt totally engrossed into the power and depth of the book. The book changed her outlook towards life, lend her the wisdom to look at things from a detached perspective and appreciate the larger scheme of things in the smallest and most trivial events happening around us. As a result, she started writing articles that would link routine incidents or familiar anecdotes with The Power above. However, as a bud needs sunlight to blossom into a magnificent flower, her source of strength and inspiration comes directly from The Ultimate Source of everything.
Her reading, thus became a foundation for her writing journey and her columns were regularly published in “Inner Voice”, the spiritual editorial section of the national daily, The Hindustan Times which became a source of encouragement for her to begin the journey of writing a book. Besides this she also has a popular blog titled ‘‘The Krishna Calling’’ on leading blog site — Wordpress.
As the events of her life have been unfolding, Mamta is now set on a spiritual journey, deriving her strength and inspiration from The Bhagavad Gita, which she feels has the power and depth to change the world. She wants to dedicate her life propagating her interpretations from the sacred text which might be a source of a contextual guidance to people. She, through her written works desires to promulgate as how to stay connected with the ultimate power while we all go through the self-routines of our respective lives and its incidental journey.
Mamta is also on the Jury panel for We Care Film Festival — an organisation which specifically showcases short films on disability issues around the world for over fifteen years. Her association with the initiative has deepened her spiritual endeavours and has given a newer meaning to her writings.
With her upcoming book titled `The Perennial Journey’, Mamta brings to us a compilation of some of her articles written over the span of 3 years. Although the overall theme of the 110-page book is spiritual,she has divided it into four major sections: God, Soul, Life and Introspection, which she believe are the stepping stones to the path of enlightenment.
