Deepak Ramola is a lyricist and is best known for films such as ‘
’ and ‘Manjhi – The Mountain Man’. He has also acted in a few movies such as ‘Isi Life Mein’, ‘
’ and a TV serial ‘
Sasural Simar Ka
’. Apart from being an actor and a lyricist, the 25-year-old is also a script analyst, screenplay writer, and a spoken word poet. Deepak Ramola dawns many hats, but he’s majorly known for being a life skill educator or simply, a teacher. He was born on 18th November 1992 which makes his zodiac sign Scorpio, in the city of Dehradun, Uttarakhand in India.
Deriving inspiration from his mother, who despite being forced to drop out of school after grade 5 was intelligent and knowledgeable, Deepak Ramola founded Project FUEL at the tender age of 17. FUEL is the short form of Forward the Understanding of Every Life Lesson. Through this initiative, he began collecting life-changing stories of people and presenting them in the form of interactive lessons for the world to see. He learned from his mother’s life that one doesn’t require scholastic knowledge to be wise, even stories and experience are great teachers.
He gathers life lessons from various people and converts it into interactive performance arts, such as theatre, poetry, creative writing which are easier to understand for the common people. Deepak, through this Project, has collected more than 50,000 life lessons and helped over 54,000 people from different walks of life with those lessons. He has conducted many workshops and interactive sessions, not only in India but also in Nepal and Afghanistan. The workshops end with collecting life lessons from the attendees. In this way, these workshops are an exchange of life changing experiences of various people from different parts of the world.
He believes that anyone can publish a book, but he didn’t want to become just another quote on the wall. Hence, to make these life lessons accessible and of use, he did things differently. In 2015, Deepak and his team visited Nepal post the earthquake and helped about 800 Nepalese people with their inspirational tales. He also plans to help the Syrian refugees with the initiative.
Deepak also performs Ghazals, Shayaris and Mushairas across the world to spread the inspirational stories through different creative mediums. While Deepak Ramola has undertaken the job of spreading stories and lessons of people from one part of the world to another part, to inspire them, his own story is nothing short of an inspirational tale.
