Student Leader Interview - Vedant Sharma, symbiosis school of culinary arts

1. Tell us more about your role and responsibilities at your college.

I blog a lot about our Indian food culture and follow all the tips and turns of the culture, and trust me we Indian yet don't know a lot about our food variety. It's a very interesting and easy way to come to my position, you just need a good appetite and a lot of interest in exploring food. During this lockdown, I got more time to spend with my mom and grandmother secret recipes and the key ingredient. In this lockdown, I got to know that it not easy to bring the same taste what our mom put in the food, they have practice the same dishes around hundred times and in lots of different ways.

2. What have been some of your biggest challenges and learning’s from what you do?

My first role in the college is to be a student who is pursuing his passion towards culinary arts and bring back our authentic Indian culture food on our pallet. Also I'm an Indian food blogger. My prime responsibility is towards my nation and college is to support people to know their passion and follow them. It is always better to follow your passion because that will help you grow fast and big, it always your passion that will make hard work convert into success. My second responsibility is towards my passion to follow it with intensity and make me feel proud for what I'm doing.

3. What did you do in your current role that makes you really proud of yourself?

My biggest challenge is to change our youth's taste from "Fried junk food to healthy fun food", our generation is more influenced toward western culture either in eating habits or in cloths. And it's way more interesting and fun to see their expression when they get to know a lot about Indian food variety in every ingredient. My learning while blogging about food is that there are hundreds of ways to make a dish in our culture which depends on family to family. The biggest learning while blogging is to choose the right ingredient to make a food change your mood.

4. What is your message to encourage students to do internships and attend conferences?

My message to every youth is to explore your passion and your work, and internships will help you guys to know all the good and bad of working in any field. And never be afraid of experimenting .

5. How did you rise up to your position and how can a student aspiring the same, approach it?

During this lockdown, I found a lot about some ancient dishes which our great grandmother use to make but we don't know anything about it at all. And I felt very proud to know that our culture is coming back during this lockdown period. As we are using all the ancient remedies in our food, which help in building natural immunity.
