Jalandhar, December 1

Today, a retired additional general manager from the Indian Ordnance Factories Services AK Goswami turned 82. He chose to celebrate his birthday differently by announcing his third book ‘Life is a game of Twenty-Twenty’.

Having started writing since the pandemic, Goswami is really excited about his new found passion of writing motivational books. He had written three books ‘Ignite a Spark to Excel in Life’ and Happiness-nectar of life’. “My latest book will be useful for those who want to win the game of life in shortest possible time. My books are also available on Amazon Kindle,” he said.

A PG in Industrial System Engineering, he chose not to relax even post his retirement in 2000. “I took up the challenge to teach management subjects to MBA and M Com students. I used to share practical examples from professional life gained over 40 years which made the lectures interesting and educative,” said Goswami, who is an empanelled for some companies, adding that eight units of MSME unit could save 2.5 crores by his consultancy.

More recently, he started a society for senior citizens named ‘Gulistan’ in Urban Estate Phase-2, which is serving the society by running a charitable dispensary, physiotherapy centre and a tailoring school for the girls. “The tailoring school is recognised by the Ministry of Human Resource Development. In our dispensary, nearly 100 patients are getting treatment at charitable rates every day”, he proudly shared.

Even at the age of 82, there is a lot of spark in him and there is no stopping him. He is thinking of starting a finishing school for young professionals coming out of the colleges to provide them training to make them competent and employable so that they start their career by getting a reasonably good job in the industry.

Asked how he keeps himself so fit physically and mentally, he said, “I take care of my body and spend 1.5 to 2 hours every day by doing yoga, pranayama and meditation.”
