My parents were very much positive in selecting my name as UTTAM, UTTAM DAS, I am an Indian, Bengali young fellow and in Bengali language Uttam means good, better, best, well, excellent, marvelous, unique so. Therefore, I think that's why I am so much positive, courageous, and self-confident from my childhood.
From my Childhood, there is so much positiveness and strength in my mind. I have done everything whatever I thought and whatever I spoke. Having my strength, tenacity and self-determination I began to step forward. I always keep distance from the studies and books obviously from the school. Actually, I was less interested about that particular subject. So, the sticks and slaps of the teachers always allotted for me. The parents were frightful about me and for my future. At that point of time I began to dream. Dream related to my life and future. I always used to think that I will be most Lovable person for all and I will give unlimited love and respect to all of our society, country and the world. But I didn't know that what is the way of my success? I had no path to run and reach the destination.
Except all this matters, I was very much interest in only one subject that is "FOOTBALL" from my childhood. Gradually the interest turns into love, emotion, passion, dream everything. Uttam decided to become an excellent and successful Football Player and started to give more and more time for practice. Then I participate in small tournaments, school matches, local club football etc. but I could not recognize by the coach and others. That is why I did not get the success as a football player. Most of the time I sat beside the sideline. Ultimately I could not become a football player. But the thing that only football attracts me in thought in every now and then; not about my football carrier but the shape and size of a football. Myself and others have realized that in an around the universe proper round shape thing is football. In that stage I start to move the Football in different process and turn the ball on different parts of my body. Then I could stand on ball hour after hour, I lift and hold the ball for a long time on any every parts of my body in different ways. I had earned many skills like moving the ball differently, bathing eating on the ball, moving on the ball, walking and starting on the ball, hold the ball on the head and swim across the river and also ride the motor cycle on the road. My all the techniques with ball made me, and my family members glad. Friends, relatives have less interest about my juggling activities, they didn't bother it. Nobody encourage me. So, I became so much committed and excited about my event because of their negative response. I have fixed a goal that I have to done everything with the FOOTBALL. I will become not a football player but a skilled FOOTBALL JUGGLER. My tenacity and determination make me 100% focus towards my dream and destination.
In that period I have only one job that is practice, practice, practice its practice. Whatever my mind speak, instantly I start to do that thing with the football frequently. I do practice every item day after day, month after month hour after hour. Gradually, the football started to listen my every word and start to feel my soul and work move as I like. Now, only my practice gave me motivation in every moment. Then I start to think that I
WILL LIVE WITH FOOTBALL, I WILL LOVE WITH FOOTBALl, I WILL WORK WITH FOOTBALL, I WILL EAT WITH FOOTBALL, I WILL SLEEP WITH FOOTBALL, I WILL DRINK WITH FOOTBALL, I WILL DREAM WITH
FOOTBALL, I DANCE WITH FOOTBALL, I have to do everything with the FOOTBALL. The Football became my passion.
The journey of my life was different, I want to say that my even juggling is not a common activities. So the ordinary people used to call me "Mad Uttam". Then I started perform my juggling show in different places in our province and country. Many people, many respectable person, many super talent send their love and congratulation massage. Huge claps, flowers, thanks & prizes came from many club, organization institution. UTTAM DAS became famous as a "FOOTBALL JUGGLER". I was increasing my practice and side by side my popularity also increasing. I have participated and perform in so many competitions, shows & got many certificates, prizes, recognition etc. All the News Electronics Media covered up my different Juggling events and shows and telecast throughout the country. But, in December 2008, I got an opportunity to show my talent in front of "THE GOD OF FOOTBALL" DIEGO MARADONA at Kolkata. That is a great achievement and experience of my life. Mr. Samik Lahiri gave the chance to touch the God of Football. I was so focus to my practice and dream that they feel me and gave me the chance to show my football juggling in front of the "Prince and Magician of the Football".
Now, the struggle and practice is going on. I have to go so far. The path is not so smooth. Many obstructions are there. I hope I get potentiality to protect all the obstacle and get the power to do more practice and create new and attractive juggling items and give people more pleasure. My every breathing will fall only for FOOTBALL. Hope to enjoy the life with my ‘FOOTBALL’.
