TAKE A STEP TOWARDS FAITH

Chandrika_Image

Greetings to my viewers.

Hey, everyone!

Let me introduce myself, I am Chandrika Adikary pursuing GWDD (Graphic Design and Web Development) 2nd semester in Arena Animation, Park Street.

This is my first blog where I will be sharing my experiences related to our recent seminar attended by me. It has been a life-changing lesson for me. Each day I learn something new and interesting and this time I came through a new topic which was “LEAP OF FAITH”.

The seminar took place on 14th December, 2019 in “Thor Lab” with all the GWDD, GWWD+ & DADM students of Arena Animation, Park Street. This is known to be the most valuable seminar for those students who are willing to make their career.

According to the topic , “Leap of Faith” is to believe in something uncertain. And if you take a “Leap of Faith”, you do something even though you are not sure it is right or you will succeed. So, take a Leap of Faith and trust them. The seminar was conducted by our mentor, Mr. Somnath Chakraborty Sir. He has a different personality and doesn’t believe in traditional teaching method. And that’s why he has started training us for the industry, where we have to show our skills.

The seminar started with Mr. Ramesh Ruia Sir’s speech, which motivated us from inside. He shared his personal industrial experiences with us. Through his speech we received many positive vibes. Thank you sir for taking such initiative towards us.

Then the seminar was continued by our very own Somnath Chakraborty Sir. This man is a real genius; he knows how to build a student’s career. Through his lectures he made the students aware about the do’s and don’ts in an interview. He arranged an interactive session, where he asked us to question him, and he gave all the answers in such a manner that made us believe in ourselves. This session also taught me about the importance of Faith, which one has to keep on the mentor to achieve their goal. Sir told us Leap of Faith is not an easy thing, and once you start following it you can’t take your step back. In short, one can keep their faith on someone whom they trust, as it is not an easy process to reach the final goal.

Sir always encourages us to work like a team and trust me guys on the seminar day I came to know what a real team work is called. By the end of the seminar sir arranged two interesting games for us where we were divided into two teams. And that moment taught us the value of bonding. The game had a valuable effect towards everyone because through this entertainment Sir made us recognize the actual meaning of Faith. After attaining this seminar I got very much serious about my career. Such a brainstorming session is an ultimate need for every generation.

Thanks to our respected mentor Somnath Sir who made us explain our worth. Would also like to thank Mr. Ramesh Ruia Sir who gave me this platform where I am getting to learn so many things and also providing us with a lot of opportunities.

Well that’s all for today. Will try to return with some more experiences. Hope you all get motivated through my blog. Thank You.

The Memorable Seminar

IMG20190425134909

 

Hello readers!

I am Suchona Nandi  pursuing GWDD+ 2nd semester in Arena Animation Park Street. This is my second blog about my first ever seminar attended in Arena Animation Park Street.The theme of the seminar was the “ Leap Of Faith”. The meaning of Leap Of Faith is an act of believing something that is not easily believed. The seminar took place on 14th December,2019 from 1 pm. The students of  GWDD, GWDD+, DADM, & PP(Print & Publishing) participated in the seminar.

Mr. Ramesh Ruia sir gave an introduction speech. He told us the story behind the theme. He shared his own real-life story about a teacher he had in school. That teacher was a gymnastics teacher, who used to make the student jump through a fire ring. He conducted that act for many years, but not a single student ever got hurt. This is because the teacher was reliable and the students used to trust him blindly. This is what leap of faith is when one person can believe another person and do some unbelievable act.

Then Mr. Ramesh Ruia sir told was that he want our Arena Animation Park Street to be a center of excellence so that the student can be fit for every job they get. The thought which pulls us back and does not let us achieve success is that we think we are learning software only. Whereas this should be on our mind that we are learning Graphic Designing or Web Designing with the help of some software. The main thing that sir told us, again and again, is that we need to have a leap of faith on our mentor, this will be the first key to open the box of success. He ended his speech by saying that the students need to work hard, create a center of excellence, and take a leap of faith to achieve his/her goal.

Then our mentor Mr. Somnath Chakrabarty sir came, and he told us that he will divide the proceedings into four parts. The first part was, the students need to ask questions to sir about jobs and interviews and any kind of technical questions. So we all asked questions to sir about every doubt we had regarding interviews and jobs. The second part was more or less the same as the first part, but there was something more, which sir discussed with us. Sir showed us the body language we need to maintain while we are going for an interview. He also showed us what we should not do in an interview. Then he told us how we should be prepared mentally and be confident but not overconfident. The third part of the event was all about the leap of faith agreement. Leap Of Faith Agreement is an agreement where a student needs to take an oath that he/she will take the leap of faith  and will complete his/her work. Then sir selected 5 of our seniors who are capable of taking the Leap Of Faith agreement. The last part of the event was the most interesting one. Sir arranged for two games which were full of fun and lesson. The first game was, there were two teams, one of the team members was blindfolded and a few paper cups were placed on the floor in front of her in a very haphazard manner, and the blindfolded person had to cross the cups without touching it. The directions were given by the leader of the team.  This is a very easy example of a leap of faith because it showed that a blindfolded person had to put each and every small step with the leader’s instructions, and if she does not listen to the leader then she will never be able to achieve her goals.  The next game was with balloons, where two different teams were made, and between each member, a balloon was kept. Now everyone had to move slowly so that not a single balloon falls. This showed that in a team project, every member’s contribution is very important, and if any one fails, the whole team will fail.

As much we enjoyed the game,we learnt very good and effective lessons too. This seminar will always be a very memorable one for me because it taught me a lot of things that will help me to grow and achieve my goals. I am very glad to be a part of this seminar.

Thank you for reading this blog. I will come up with more blogs & Vlogs, so till then you can follow me on:

THE WARM WELCOME

SquareFit_20191120_21325714

Hello readers! I am Suchona Nandi pursuing GWDD+ 2nd semester in Arena Animation Park Street. This is my very first blog. I always wanted to write a blog, but never got much confidence to write one.

So here I am writing this blog about the  of welcoming freshers to the Thor Lab.

On 27th November , my 1st Semester was completed and from 3rd December my 2nd semester started with Mr. Somnath Chakrabarty sir. On 10th December, 2019 we were said to be present at 12 pm. Exactly at 12, we were asked to get inside the Thor Lab and we were welcomed by the seniors clapping and saying “Welcome to Thor Lab”. Our mentor Mr. Somnath Chakrabrty sir gave a small introduction speech and then introduced us one by one with the seniors. Then he introduced the seniors with us.

The seniors took the initiative to start the orientation. They asked us about our experience in 1st semester, and how much we are enjoying the new class. Then they told us  about their experiences with sir and what we should do and should not do in class .The seniors were so friendly and loving that we felt very comfortable to share our thoughts with them. They were very much inspiring. They even gave us gifts as a token of love. We also got to know about the activity that takes place every month. They showed us the videos they have made as  activity work and shared how much they enjoyed doing those. We enjoyed a lot with the seniors. Even an alumni visited the orientation for us . She is soo great that she talked about her experiences, when she was  a student. She is also  an inspirtion to us.

The day ended with lots of laughter and fun. This will always be a memorable day for me. I can’t thank enough to the seniors and our mentor for arranging such  lovely orientation day. I feel very overwhelmed to be a part of Arena Animation Park Street

Thank you for reading my blog. I will come up with more blogs with some new contents.

Shivani_Poddar_Profile_Pic_2

Hello readers, I am Shivani Poddar. I am pursuing Digital marketing and advertising (DADM 2nd Semester)  from Arena Animation, Park Street.

This is my first blog.In this blog i would like to narrate my experience from not knowing anyone in the institute to making so many friends in my very first week of the second semester.

In 2nd Semester it was my first day with Somnath Sir  he is called “The Singham” of the institute. I was scared but the way he explained me everything was very supportive and  motivating. After the syllabus discussion he told me about the monthly activity that was going to take place the very next day. He asked my seniors to include me in the activity. I was quite happy to be a part of the activity. My seniors were discussing about the script and even i was asked for ideas. I was also included in the script i was also given a small office scene. First day went very well. Now it was show time the activity day.

The activity day(23.11.2019):

The activity started in the morning all my seniors were very welcoming and enthusiastic. Then came my scene where i had to sit in the office and this way i was a part of the activity. Later seniors had arranged for lunch. The day ended pretty well and it was alot of fun to be a part of the activity.It does not end here i was chosen for a small task and that was editing and assembling the videos. After the work was done all my seniors appreciated me for what i had done.

At the end i would like to say that this one week i had alot of fun and interaction with my seniors. They were the one who made me comfortable and at home.

I will be coming up with more blog and  interesting Vlogs.

PEHLI BAAR HAIN JI

blog_image_4

Hello readers. I am Manjyot Kaur. I am pursuing my bachelors in commerce from St. Xavier’s College (Autonomous), Kolkata along with my certificate course in Graphics, Web Designing and Development (GWDD, 2nd Semester) from Arena Animation, Park Street.

This is my first blog about my first seminar at Arena Animation. The subject was Typography and Blogging itself. Hence I got the motivation to write this.

The first session was on Typography. Starting from what are pictograms and phonograms to anatomy, every bit of information on it was beautifully explained by our teacher. I never knew about the em-space  and en-space. Various fonts which we incorporated in our graphics are obsolete and some are not even appropriate to use. Answers to some of the questions were known but not most of them. Our teacher had explained each element of the anatomy of any font. I never thought that letters also had anatomy like our human bodies do. The end of the session gave us a feeling of frisson. We had to create our own font. I never thought someone would ever ask me to do that. Somehow we did it and there was one winner like in the every race.

As and when the second session started, we all were eager to know the commonly heard term, ‘Blogging’. I have tried writing blogs before this. However, after the session, I would rectify myself. We got to know about various sites like WordPress and how blogging is a trend these days. The definition of blogging in one line would be ‘sharing your stories online by writing them’. Blogging is a crucial element of digital marketing. As a web development student it is important to know that content is king of any website. Hence this session was crucial for us.

At the end, we were also provided with information about making your curriculum vitae. This was like cherry on the cake.

I believe that gaining knowledge is a continuous process and lessons outside class are very important as we cannot learn about a subject wholly in restricted timings of our classes.

Zindagi Ek Safar Hai Suhana

SUDDEN HOW! LIFE BECOMES GET A NEW PHASE

Hi Guys, I am Bhavna Agarwal student of Arena Animation Park Street, Digital Advertising And Digital Marketing(DADM)(2nd semester).This is my first blog through which I want to share my views with you all, about my transition from first phase to birth giving phase(from 1st semester to 2nd semester).

As I was so far from Arena family, I didn’t know how’s the four walls of Arena will treat me if I get enroll myself in this institute.

So, when I got enroll myself in December, 2018, from this time my life has become changed. Guys, I have done B.Tech in computer science from Luckhnow University in 2014. After that I had done my post-graduation i.e., M.B.A in computers and HR in 2016. Actually I have a very distinct story. When I completed my B.Tech, I wanted to get placed in some professional life. I had given many on campus and off campus interviews, some has given me correct evidence and some negate me. But in the end of my B.Tech, I got selected in an interview for a private organization, in Delhi. Then suddenly what happens, my family has been shifted to Kolkata due to business norms. That time I didn’t know anybody in Kolkata as it’s a new place for me. I have never been there before this time.

Suddenly by God’s grace, I got a chance to I enrolled myself in Arena Animation Park Street. Now, I have started to enjoy my course as I was so enthusiastic to know graphics and marketing. In spite of all the academic work, I had learned some extra-curricular activities and to became a part of Arena family. All the time software tools and their working struck to my mind to make me what to do next. When I get free time, practice chases me.

Though I am a house wife, I have to do all home chores. Not all but I do cooking, have to give my sometime to each and everybody, some socializing, my personnel work and all other things which every girl follow after their weddings. In spite of all, it’s my pleasure I am enjoying every needle of this course. I listen my mentors, I involve almost in every activity of APS.

Now my first semester has been completed and I am walking towards my second semester, our seniors have welcomed us with a nice balloon decor in THOR Lab. They were guiding us, what would we have to face in 2nd semester. Seniors told us that you people have to be concentrate on your work because Somnath Sir is very passionate towards his work.

I think, what I did in past it’s not sufficient and I have to build myself strong, reliable and tolerant. Earlier I had learnt tools and techniques but right now, I have to implement them with my great efforts. Now my life has become changed again. Earlier, I was down to earth personality but I have become idealistic.

I thought, I have to substitute myself to become strengthen, patient and passionate one to survive in this adventurous world. My thought process has changed entirely after entering in this dreamy world. Earlier I was introvert but now I am an extrovert. What a wonderful well of knowledge and experience tapping inside me is making me fantastic. And I think there is no greater skill in life than patience.

At the end I’d like to say Life is very short. You never know when it will get change. So, guys do everything in your life whatever you want. Whatever runs in present, opportunities comes in future.

THE NUMBER OF INSPIRING PEOPLE YOU MEET ALL TIME AND THE RANGE OF ACTIVITIES AND ENTHUSIASM TURNS YOUR LIFE AROUND SO MUCH

That’s all about my first blog, I will be coming back to you with my few more interesting blogs. Please stay connected with me as-

Ajab GWDD Ki Gazab Kahaani

burhan

Hello guys! I am Burhan Mullamithawala from 2nd semester, GWDD, Arena Animation, Park Street.

This is my second blog. I would like to share with you my experience in the past 3 months of coming in the 2nd semester of GWDD, Arena Animation, Park Street and my latest experience in participating in our exhibition Pratibimba2019.

As I shared with you in my last post how I have changed in the last 8 months, only this time I would like to tell how responsible I have become as a person.

Learning HTML language in GWDD has widened my perspective of how little I know about today’s technology. Its vastness blew my mind but it didn’t stop me from taking it as a challenge. Instead I understood its concepts and logic that is to be used while designing a web page. As our mentor Sir Somnath Chakraborty tells us that Web is a vast ocean and it can never be learnt in a limited time. Every day it’s changing and expanding through its boundaries. Only we can do is to keep learning and adapt with it. Currently, I’m progressing in learning this vast language and I have already begun in designing my first webpage for my first GWDD Project. It has been a challenging experience but I have the support of my teacher, my family and my seniors Koushik Dalui, Salina Marandi and Ausmita Pal. Apart from being just seniors, they have become friends as well. We share a great bond and no one could tell that we have a senior-junior relationship.

Coming to Pratibimba2019, it’s an experience that cannot be explained in words. We all worked hard for it to be a success. We made short funny clips where we enacted different roles. I for sure got to see a different side of myself. I got to play Gabbar (Macchar) Singh and it was a fun moment. I also got to see my funny side where I enacted in a funny interview. And that funny side did also come out mainly because of one person, my senior Sattwik Banerjee who played my interviewer. His acting chops are a class apart but more so are his funny gags which made us laugh out loud. We also got to play roles where we were smitten by Tanushree Roy’s playboy character and we ended up having fun due to Koushik Dalui and Sandip Mondal’s hilarious acting.

All our videos were on display for our parents, friends and other esteemed guests to see and we definitely got a great feedback. These videos showed people that our lives just don’t revolve around studies but we also have fun. It showed that we break the monotony of living a robotic life and do something opposite where we end up enjoying and learning from each other. We got to interact with people during the exhibition and it helped us in learning how to present ourselves to different types of crowd.

All in all it was a great experience for me. I learned how to take charge of my life and present myself in front of the camera and people. But all of this would not be possible without the guidance and support of our mentor Sir Somnath Chakraborty. He truly brings out the best in us. He is many a time harsh on us but that is only because he knows our capabilities and he wants us to get out of our comfort zone. He sees a great potential in me and I know I will reach my destination because I have his unconditional support.

Thank you for taking the time to read my blog. Hoping to share more of my experiences in GWDD, Arena Animation, Park Street.

Sattwik Banerjee,Arena Animation,Park Street,GWDD,_2nd_Sem

Hello readers!, a very warm welcome to all. I am Sattwik Banerjee, student of  Arena Animation Park Street, GWDD(2nd) Semester, wants to share my experience with you all about our recent GWDD monthly activity. which was  on 25th January, and the theme  was ” 70th Republic Day Celebration “.

Every month we decide a topic for our activity, make a proper layout regarding the same and execute it to the best on the final day with my GWDD family. Every month I wait for our monthly activity. This is not just an activity, it gives us refreshment which is needed after a full month of frantic schedules and work pressure. We start planning our activity a week before the activity date, an event is created on social media platforms and every student of APS is invited to the upcoming activity. This time, we got a golden opportunity to show our love and passion towards our nation India . If you missed my first blog check it out in the link below :

https://arenaps.wordpress.com/2018/08/10/my-gwdd-is-my-identity/

Now let’s see how me and my family execute the work. As usual all of us gathered in our  “Thor Lab” (our classroom) by 09:00 AM under the strictly informed by team leader and we started unwrapping our props and bags. We started, clicking a snap and posted it on social media, warmly inviting everyone to join with us. All of us already had a proper planning in mind, according to which we all were supposed to proceed.

My job was to make a perfect base and make a tricolor flag. My team mates were busy with their respective work. Our team took part in the activity with an energetic approach. After a while, we took a chai-break ( Source of our energy ) which was needed to maintain our energy levels for the activity. We were listening to patriotic songs while working .

” Aye mere pyaare vatan, Aye mere bichhade chaman
Tujh pe dil qurabaan ,
Tu hi merii aarazu,  Tu hi merii aabaru Tu hi merii jaan…”

When clock struck 1:30 PM , we had lunch break. This was the foremost part of our activity because we took lunch together including Somnath Chakraborty Sir. After completing our lunch together we were again back to our work, but this time with little pressure because time was passing by like speed of bullet, and Somnath Sir warned the deadline time that we could completed our work within our deadline at 5 PM. But we break the myth by completing our work within time. After completion our day activity, we take a group photo with our model.

Our team worked really hard and we paid our tribute to our country through our activity . Our final work was executed well as planned.

I am really proud to be an Indian & GWDDIAN . Jai Hind!

Burhan Mullamithawala , GWDD, 2nd sem,Arena Animation  Park Street

Hey guys! My name is Burhan Mullamithawala and I am a 2nd semester student in GWDD. I know it’s going to be tongue twister for everyone to pronounce my surname but you will soon get a knack of pronouncing it properly.

This is my very first blog which I have written in my life. I would like to give you a sneak peek into these past 8 months in Arena Animation, Park Street.

Failure is the opportunity to begin again more intelligently.” – A quote which has changed me for the better in these past months.

I am a B.Tech graduate from Netaji Subhash Engineering College, Kolkata.  Then my mother came to me with this idea about website designing as I had earlier shown interest in my school days. I read through a lot of other job prospects and I found GWDD to be most prospecting, so I joined Arena Animation after careful consideration. After joining Arena Animation, Park Street I saw what I was missing out on after my school days.

During my 1st semester my faculty were Deepak Sir and Sayani Ma’am. They taught me Adobe Illustrator, Photoshop and Coreldraw very efficiently .They are one of the coolest most supportive teachers I ever got. They helped me in every step of the way. But I didn’t know whom I was going to come across next.

My teachers did say that my 2nd semester is not going to be a walk in the garden as the course was going to get tougher and more over the teacher helming it is someone I have not met in my life before. I hoped for the better and it’s been one month now in my 2nd semester of web designing and I can easily say that I have found a great teacher in Sir Somnath Chakraborty. He is very diligent towards his work and more than that he truly cares for the future of his students. He’s strict when it comes to completing our work but that is only because he wants us to push our boundaries and expand. He has an unconventional way teaching. Something I have seen very rarely in my life. He scolds us with his bizarre eye and hand gestures when we are not concentrating on the things assigned to us by him but he pampers us too with all his love. I have already started making brands for my portfolio and I believe I’ve become more hardworking under his guidance.

I have also attended two seminars till now under Somnath Sir, and they have been very productive for me. He makes sure that each student gets the most out of it and challenges us to ask more questions.

He also tells to us to connect with our seniors for our work issues or any matter that’s riddling us. My seniors Kaushik Dalui and Salina Marandi have guided me in my problems related to my brand and portfolio designing. Mariyam and Annapurna are my classmates and they’ve been very helpful too when I had problems in Adobe Flash. We have become a good team in this past one month. We joke around too which eases mollifies the stress as our Somnath Sir says that bookish, robotic life will not help us in life and we should live a little outside our academic life.

I can easily say that I’m very happy to have joined Arena Animation, Park Street and more so I’m very fortunate to have got such supportive mentors and classmates who are always there to help. I have become more open about my problems and I do not have to look far for their solution anymore.

Thank you for taking the time to read my first blog. I hope to write more in the coming months. Stay tuned!

Kabhi Alvida Na Kehna..

Sumaiya Rahman, GWDD-Plus, 2nd Semester, Arena Animation, Park Street

After a long time, typing to share own experiences is a different feeling altogether. This is not the last blog I am going to write, but definitely one of the most important and longest one till date.

No one can take what Arena Animation ,Park Street has given me. I am not that proud of my college life or never built any special moment there to cherish later. After third year I gave up on the thought of making good, fun memories in educational life or even later. Somehow, I was struggling to build my career and the rest seemed secondary. If I say that my first semester was boring I would be wrong. I did make many new friends and participated in events. But that became common when I came to 2nd Semester of my course. It took me time to adjust to the new ambiance, discipline, routine and lots more. Slowly and gradually I got used to it. And now, at present, thinking of leaving everything I am living here is a nightmare.

The first and foremost thing that Pinocchio lab (classroom of 2nd Sem) has given me is a family of six, not by blood but by relation. And I hope to carry forward that as long as possible. I agree that we fight, we get mad at each other, we stop talking, show our craziness, and sometimes unintentionally hurt. But we stick together and make it till the end.

e

Family By Relation, Not By Blood (Scroll Down To Know About Sixth Member)

Here, let me talk about one of the most interesting character of the family. He is renowned as Singham (Sir Somnath Chakraborty) and for a reason. He is that alchemist who brewed the elixir out of us. For me he is that “Silent Guardian” who protected us and made us who we are.

Yes, he gave us home tasks which took us sleepless nights to finish, assignments for which we had to work continuously for 5 to 6 hours without a break. That gave me an opportunity to start with a job in a company as Web Designer after I got selected in the machine test and personal Interview round. But it is here, in the same lab that we learned to upgrade ourselves everyday to become better than yesterday. And so, I upgraded to Digital Marketing to become a complete package before stepping out.

So now I know I am standing where I should be.

This reminds me of my first day in APS. I was sent to Rhythm Lab (our first classroom) and I noticed a wall painting, big enough to be looked at by all the people present in the room. It had a saying, “I may not have landed up where I wanted to be… but I have landed up where I needed to be”. First few days I took time to understand what it really meant. Being from Math background somewhere I still found ways to go back there. But today, while typing these lines I know and can say it proudly that I have landed up where I needed to be.

In my previous blogs I have already spoke about the monthly seminars and activities that we conduct, the lessons they taught, and benefits I received. Co-ordinating the activities and seminars not only taught me to organize the team but also myself which had an impact on my personal life too. In the movie “Spiderman” I still remember a dialogue,

“With great power comes great responsibilities..”

But in my case, my responsibilities helped me to discover the inner power I never realized I had.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Whenever the albums of those events got posted and the alumni commented, I could never understand what they missed when looking at those pictures. But today, when it is time for me to pass on the activity box to the next generation of Pinocchio Lab, hand over the “Satta” I can feel how painful and nostalgic it must be for them. And now it is like I want to collect as many sea-shells of memories as possible before leaving the lab forever.

Four walls make a classroom. The bonding between the students and the teachers of that class make it lively and a second home for each one.

After I leave, everything will be the same, the chairs, the monitors, the CPU’s, the floor, the walls. New people will take over my responsibilities, curriculum will proceed as they should. A new chapter will begin with new stories. And just like me, the lab will again start making new fighters. But my life will change for good, and with everything I got from here I’ll set out for another journey to another destination.

Life moves on, time goes by. After all, no one in this world is indispensable.
