Eclectica Series

If asked to describe himself in just one word, Deepak would use a compound one, non-conformist. Deepak has never coloured inside the lines, always seeking new ways to do things. Even his art teacher in school was rather taken aback – even if not impressed – by the way Deepak dealt with art techniques. If he didn’t like the techniques taught to him, he invented new ones.

Coming from a family of avid readers, Deepak soon discovered the joys of sinking into a good book and was soon far outstripping his classmates, both in choice of reading material and speed of reading. Deepak figuratively devoured books like a gourmand, reading anything and everything. One of his chief delights at the start of school was to read all his textbooks for the academic year as if they were novels, mostly cover to cover in about an hour each.

Developing thus an eclectic interest in just about everything – he has authored over a dozen guide books on management subjects ranging from Business Ethics to Marketing to Information Technology, has been published in the Chicken Soup for the Indian Soul series and has written and staged over forty musicals – en route collecting a Master’s Degree in Commerce, a Master’s Diploma in Management, an International Diploma in Computer Studies and an International Professional Certificate in Communication, Deepak has developed a succinct style that addresses the root of intellect as well as emotion.

He currently lives in Pune, India, teaching Speech, Drama and Communication, and writing and staging musicals – book and lyrics – for schools.


(Eclectica) (Volume 1) Business Advice from an Artist
There is plenty of advice for business an artist can give - Deepak Morris would know. Having earned a Master’s Degree in Commerce, a Master’s Diploma in Management, an International Diploma in Computer Studies and an International Professional Certificate in Communication, and written extensively in the fields of business ethics, marketing and communication, he currently lives in Pune, India, teaching Speech, Drama and Communication, and writing and staging musicals, to convey the life wisdom of a practical artist in the business of art. "Thousands of children are taught grammar. How many become great writers? Only the passionate."


(Eclectica) (Volume 2) I have to Eat and Sleep: the Art of Business
Deepak is a cunning businessman, and an inspired artist. His fundamental training in both has resulted in an art of business which is almost philosophical. This book attempts to focus upon that almost philosophical philosophy presented in Deepak Morris’s “Business Advice for an Artist.” Effortless living is an honest living, and the common interactions we have with people daily can result in uncommon friendship if we only permit ourselves to allow that most fundamentally honest relationship to grow. Deepak’s joy of living is natural and effortless – and we can share it too: beginning by admitting to ourselves, as Deepak does, that we have to eat and sleep. When we acknowledge this basic fact, we discover the importance of having fun – whether we dine alone or with friends or with strangers, whether we sleep peacefully or not. Life is an adventure, and we write the story. And as Deepak has shown, we can make it a better one – for everybody.
