My story so far | Kalyan.
By Kalyan Yasaswi
Foreword by Joseph Radhik
It's been more than three years since I went to a drag racing event with my buddies and was swamped by two very enthusiastic little fan-boys. Little did I know that that (not so entertaining) afternoon would lead to me starting off the idea of Stories. Kalyan Yasaswi was one of those fan-boys who turned out to be this talented pocket-sized dynamo who'd eventually become a superhit with every bride and groom we ever shot. So, before I speak more, I shall hand the mic over to the very first and most versatile team member ever at Stories: ladies and gentlemen, Kalyan Yasaswi!
II've been working here the longest, I guess. It's been three years and five months now since the day I ended up at Joe's house with mixed expectations. I was looking back in retrospect this new year and I realized this is the longest I've been part of something after school, even my college was only 3 years long. In the course of these three years, I've acquired several life skills and learnt to do everyone's job (except perhaps Joe's himself, no one wants that). I used to joke saying it has become a part-time life and a full-time job. I have probably shed several layers of inhibitions in talking to people and making new friends. It's like a wave of new and interesting people just hit me and probably pulled me along with them. I can proudly say that I've attended more than a 100 weddings by the time I'm 25, that is by any scale a lot of celebration in 3 years.
Being part of a team is always a challenge, especially so when you are an artist (or a superhero). Like the Justice League for example, there is always bound to be a power struggle. But I have learnt how to co-waltz with the team. Jim Rohn once said, '"You are the average of the five people you spend the most time with". Working with Stories has made sure that I have constantly been surrounded by more than five remarkably talented people.
