Event Details


By Dr. Akash Khurana

An NCPA Presentation

How often do we recall the major achievements in our lives and celebrate them? Do we spend enough time remembering significant people and incidents that influenced our lives? Do we look back and cherish the contribution of our mentors?

In Mentormorphosis, Akash Khurana chronicles how his mentors shaped the early years of his life, and with that as a reference, he generates a model of various mentoring stages and mentor types that may be applicable to everyone’s life. Readers are then guided to revisit their own mentoring history and recall certain learnings that could enrich their perspective on their journey into the future. By sharing experiences through a memoir, the author replicates the tradition of storytelling where emotionally compelling tales are handed down over generations. Based on his own experiences in management, academics, media and the performing arts, Khurana believes that developing the passion to be creative embellishes the leader in you and is a stairway to excellence, and in this casebook, he stimulates answers to the interestingly poised question: How do you find a mentor who can fuel that passion?

Akash Khurana is a compulsive and consummate multitasker, who has worked in theatre, film, television, academia and corporate work environments for over four decades. An engineer with an MBA, M.Phil and Ph.D, he has taught at several business schools and his corporate roles include Marketing Executive, HR Advisor, Chief Creative Officer and CEO. He has written over 20 screenplays, including Baazigar, for which he received the Filmfare Award. He has acted in nearly 60 films and has won the Nandi Award from the Government of Andhra Pradesh for playing the lead in the Telugu film Dr. Ambedkar. The River of Love, a feature film directed by him, has received a host of international awards. In theatre, he has been a core member of some of India’s foremost theatre companies. His production of Vijay Tendulkar’s A Friend’s Story was performed at Shakespeare’s Globe in London.
