Arindam Bhowmik, GWDD,2ND SEM ARENA ANIMATION,PARK STREET
Hello readers, I am Arindam Bhowmick and it’s been 3 months since I started my GWDD 2nd Sem. I am writing this blog to share my experience with you all. As I am passionate about web designing and development I joined GWDD course in Arena Animation, Park Street.
My experience in 1st sem was moreover good and my sir was one of the finest teachers for graphics. Needless to say, I don’t think I can ever forget him. When I was at the end of 1st sem I heard lots of rumors like “You’re doing GWDD? Oh my God! Do you know that your teacher is very rude and arrogant?. When such rumors come to you, curiosity to meet the person is an obvious thing. I was like “What will happen next?”
The first class in 2nd sem was all about introduction and a productive one where we got information about our course duration, systems to be followed, and what we are going to learn. But I was still anxious to know “What now?”
The second class was a bit different that we didn’t expect. It was a surprise for us by seniors where they cheered us and shared their experience of Pinocchio Lab (our classroom). They made us feel special in their own way and I felt more comfortable in the room than before. Days passed by and also the rumors I heard. The classes were nothing like the rumors. Well, first lesson learned- Never trust rumors.
And thus, our team dedicated an article to the seniors, showing our love and gratitude through words.
With more and more number of classes I improved not only as a student but also as a human which helped me a lot in learning and my practical life where I was a game addict (Urgghh! I had to leave my games for this). I was so surprised to see that I could overcome the addiction (that was apparently an impossible challenge for me) and get back to real world. Now I know, game addiction was waste of my potential. I realized it’s easy to live in the comfort zone, with no passion, doing the same thing again and again while it’s hard to fight for your dreams to come true and surrender to success. That is what our life is meant for.
Most effective lesson I learned is to organize, whether it’s desktop or real life. I learned about my strength and weaknesses, my skills and loopholes (already started working on it) which is really helpful.
Only study and no recreation will not help you to achieve your goals. Thus, in GWDD I started different activities along with my other team members which is held every month where we work as a team to do something creative, enjoy and learn teamwork as we all know when ‘I’ is replaced by ‘WE’ even illness becomes wellness. Team work is unforgettable.
It’s really an amazing experience to attend monthly seminar conducted by our mentor, Somnath Chakraborty Sir. When we think of seminar we visualize some usual boring ambience. But in Pinocchio Lab it’s totally a unique experience I had. What’s your view about a seminar? Well, this seminar was full of fun and entertainment along with knowledge and facts not easily found in GOOGLE. This seminar helped me a lot to go through my skill development and confidence needed.

I am lucky to be a part of GWDD-family as every day is a new day where I learn new things and try my level best to be consistence. I have never seen a mentor like Somnath sir. He has always motivated us and gave us the spark to light the fire within us which ends up in the best productivity. Thus, training us for the industry and also practical or personal life.
Now, the belief is-
“Suffer the pain of discipline or suffer the pain of regret”.
