“God could not be everywhere, and therefore he made mothers” we all have heard this quote and I truly believe it. I always reach out to my mom for slightest matters in my life and she has always been there for me. On this Mother’s Day I want to share a story of a mom who is a singer by profession and how she keeps work- life balance.
Runki Goswami is a music director and singer and is known for her contribution in Indian regional cinema. Belonging to a family of musicians, Runki is no exception as she has always been pursuing it since the age of 3 and promises to hold on it until her last breath.
Runki Goswami (Runki Laik maiden name) has been learning Hindustani Classical music since childhood and was exposed to stage performances since the age of six. After this followed numerous stage performances while representing her school in various competitions, AIR recordings and other private shows.
Bengali by birth, raised in Ranchi, her tryst with Indian Cinema started in 2013; in Hyderabad as a music director of a Telegu film Writer-Theadavaste Writer. Runki’s music got noticed due to the genre of melody she revisited which is now a passé in majority films. She then went on to sign a few newer banner Telugu movies including Trivikraman. Her super hit composition Teen Maar Beatulakki is still a favourite with the rural mass in Telangana. Apart from films, Runki’s Bengali devotional album Debobeena and two other Hindi albums Manmarzian and Odhi Chunar Dhaani have been very well received by audience.
Armed with an executive management from ISB Hyderabad and a Masters in Communication and Journalism, Runki is a heterogeneous mix of confidence, talent, self-discipline and determination. Runki’s dedication to music along with working in a senior position in an MNC speaks of her passion and immense love for this art, which is otherwise no mean feat to keep up with. Currently residing in Delhi, Runki’s live stage performances in India Habitat centre and Epicentre have been keeping the audience asking for more. There is a lot more that she promises to bring to her audience very soon. Runki believes music is the only way she can give back to the society and therefore allows all her shows to be non-ticketed without charging a penny for her performance.
She says: As mothers, we are wired to find time for kids no matter how occupied or busy we are. It comes naturally to us without having to make deliberate attempts to be with them. I leave early from office to be able to have evening tea with my kids. Between my work and their studies, we always find time to share moments of fun, frolic and family bonding. Most importantly, they know that I am always there for them no matter how busy I am. I don’t miss a single call from them even if that means taking it in the middle of a meeting or a music jam. I have set expectations with office and music colleagues accordingly. My priority is to keep my kids healthy, happy and ensure they never miss me. Their happiness gives me the strength to follow my career and passion in full capacity. Moreover, I’m proud to have a husband who is a doting dad and always adjusts his busy schedule to be with the kids when I’m traveling for work or music.
Just the way we are wired to keep our kids happy, kids too know how to give it back to their parents. Self-drawn Happy Mother’s Day cards, whipping up quick doable recipe’s, big warm hugs and kisses are good enough ways of showing love for their mother. We wouldn’t want anything more for sure. Their thought of making the day special for is good enough; we couldn’t ask them anything for more.
She is an ideal example for all young talents who give up their talent for the corporate world. She truly is brilliant with her time management skills and enjoying the very best of both worlds.
