To say that Bipin Pandit is multi-faceted and talented is to state the obvious. If you have tasted his passion for voice modulation, cricket, advertising and singing then consider yourself blessed. After a point of time you will find it hard to fathom what really is his love because of his ability to keep you enthralled.
Whether it is his narration of Amol Palekar trying to enter a Marathi ad in the language category in Cannes or his depiction of Neelu Phule and Dada Kondke in an unforgettable cameo, Bipin will have your sides splitting in hysteria.
He will appreciate a Gundappa Vishwanath square cut with the same gusto as Sachin fending a rising McGrath delivery or Waqar delivering a toe crusher. His knowledge and unbridled love for the game is infectious to say the least.
Advertising and Ad Club Bombay is incomplete without Bipin. He has left his mark on many an event of the Ad Club with his meticulous planning and flawless execution. This reflects in his management of sponsorship and audiences and behind the scene supervision of details like rehearsing the entertainment acts or planning a menu that will blow you away. He loves and cares for his colleagues in the secretariat.
Having myself been involved with the judging of Abbies for the last 7 years, I have worked closely with Bipin. I have seen him dig deep in his reservoir of talent to cope with the egos and complexities of this high pressure event.
Singing is probably his best keep secret..those of us who have had the privilege of listening to him have bookmarked the day as a memorable event in our lives. Bipin does a Rafi and Kishore with the aplomb of an archiver who will jog your memory to remember Dev Anand in Hum Dono or Guide and Sanjeev Kumar doing a Dil Dhoondta Hai..
Bipin is a foodie at heart. At Goa fest you will find Bipin is not impressed by the drenched babes of the rain dance. He would rather enjoy the prawns of Martins or the sukem at Mandovi. And these days Bipin is immersed in the peaty side of life in the islay single malts like Lagavulin and Cao??la. ALL IN ALL, BIPIN EPITOMIZES JOY DE VIVRE!
