How to be a bartender? Why should one be a bartender? How can Bartending be a profession? The question’s frequently asked when it comes to serious bartending. Question’s most in the bartending fraternity are quite familiar with.
An era, where most parents have already planned their children future even before the child is conceived, let alone wanting to know what he or she desires to be. And why should you blame them? Everyone wishes well for their kids. Who wouldn’t love their children grow up to be doctors, engineers, etc. All on the maximum money generating profession 😉
Being a kid is so much fun. Hopping one day “Santa’s” gonna come by with loads of gift or making it to “Neverland” one fine day. The real world doesn’t bother you at all. I can see it in my kid. It’s “we “the parents that are most petrified about the future, which reflects in my thoughts most of the time. Actually making me realize how exactly my parent felt.
Our parents (my bro and me) too wished the best for us like every parent do. Growing up in the 1980’s was a bit different. Bars? Let alone bartending and alcohol was considered taboo. Thinking of bartending was like some kind of a criminal offence 🙂 . It being an era totally dedicated to doctors and engineers.
Growing up was so much fun, but the fun comes with an expiry date. It expires when you grow-up. “Now its time to be serious, choose a profession” a verse which certifies that u have now grown up. And It all falls back to choosing your profession. Please! don’t choose the one you like, but the one that could generate maximum revenue. Which would definitely secure your Future, “The Present?” it never did matter anyway, did it? 🙂
And we all come under the same stereotype when it’s about career selection. Bartending was never on the list of carrier profession. Why should one be a bartender? Bartending is fun, not a career. And your grown-up’s arent supposed to have fun.
Breaking away from the cliche in our family was what “Rohan”(my sibling) achieved. Being a commerce graduate he went on and persuaded bartending against the odds. Not only did he build a career but excelled and went on to become India’s no.1 bartender from 2003 to 2007. Gaining many achievements in his career as a bartender. And he still does Bartend
We both decided to grow-up but not stop having fun. I went on to be a Disc Jockey. Spun music in India and Abroad, until I came back to India in 2007. Which led me towards my big career switch to “Bartending” keeping the fun factor very much alive.
