THE CAREER CHOICE
I remember the time when all at home were so against him choosing to bartend. A graduate and choosing Bartending for a profession, of all the options that were available to him. But Rohan Carvalho was keen on his decision on what he wished to persuade and not what others wanted him to do.
He then went on to do a bartending course from Bombay. Rohan was not just thinking of being a bartender he wanted to do more. He once told me that when people ask him “why do you want to be a bartender? He replied, “ HE WANTED TO BE INDIA’S NUMBER 1 BARTENDER”. And everyone would laugh 🙂 .
