The new show hosted by Bithika Anand features stalwarts of the legal profession and makes an attempt to explore the person behind the lawyer.
In the show's newest episode, Dutt speaks of turning points in his life, tips on entrepreneurship, his motivations, his love for law and more.
Speaking to the turning points in his professional life, Dutt discussed his move from purely counsel practice to corporate law.
“I think it started there, when I left and I joined ICICI and after that Luthra… and then major one when I left Amarchand and started Argus Partners.”
He added that an entrepreneurial journey was satisfying, but came with its own baggage.
“You need to have two primary things: you have to have little bit less intelligence, if you have more, you won’t take risks.. Second is, you have to have huge doses of empathy, you’ve got to build an organisation and the third is, you have to have a bit of a thick skin,” he explained.
Dutt shared that his motivation in life was to create something new.
“Money is not a primary motivator for me.. It is always create something, add value. What drives a lot of other entrepreneurs is not money.”
He also shared his deep love for law, because it challenges one’s mind every day and creates new learning.
Further shedding light on his views of spirituality, he shared his belief that God is created by humans.
“I believe in God, so I am not an atheist. I don’t believe in rituals, I believe there is science to everything. I am deeply spiritual actually.”
In advice to young lawyers he said, “completely love what you do, otherwise don’t do it.”
The new show hosted by Bithika Anand will see eminent lawyers talking about transformative moments in their lives, their spiritual journey and insights that became clear only later on.
In a series of candid conversations, Anand will attempt to bring out the true selves of the guests in terms of depth of thought, and will explore their lighter sides, including their choices in entertainment, lifestyle, hobbies and interests.
Season One of the show has been shot virtually and will air exclusively on Bar & Bench's YouTube channel. Fresh episodes of Soulful Conversations with Bithika Anand will be aired every Friday.
