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

Perks of being a APS DADM Student

blog image

Hey everyone! I am Meghna Gupta2nd sem student pursuing DADM (Digital Advertising Design & Marketing) course from Arena Animation, Park Street. Along with this I am doing my B.COM  (bachelors of commerce ) from J.D Birla Institute.

I’m very excited to write this blog as it is the first time ever I’m ever writing a blog. My journey in APS has been beautiful and life-changing. Every day I learn something new and interesting. In this blog I will share my experience about the recent seminar I attended in APS on the topic ‘Digital Marketing benefits in GWDD (Graphic, Web Design and Development).

As interesting as the topic, the seminar was also exhilarating. The seminar was held on 21st June 2019, and was conducted at the ‘Thor Lab’. We all know how marketing has evolved globally by going digital and it has become an important part of every organisation. With India going digital more the concept of digital marketing has come into the picture. The seminar was conducted by my mentor, Somnath Chakraborty Sir. He has a different approach and doesn’t believe in teaching theoretically. He makes us understand everything practically and has always been preparing us for the industry. He explained exactly what is digital marketing and what are the different aspects connected to it and how it is useful in every career and why every firm today needs a digital marketer. He often says, “digital marketing is an ocean”, an ocean of techniques.

A firm requires a digital marketer for it’s promotion, brand building and buying and selling of goods efficiently and many other activities. He made us acquainted with the term “SEM” (Search Engine Marketing) and “SEO” (Search Engine Optimisation) which are major parts of digital marketing.

He further explained the various ways to optimise a website and the factors such as text, content, images, videos and inbound and outbound links affecting the rank of website in a SERP (Search Engine Result Page).We also had the honour of having our centre head, Ramesh Ruia Sir to share his knowledge with us, which was extremely useful. He told us how the population is distributed among X,Y & Z generation and how to hit the right target audience using a right digital platform.

He unfolded the importance of ‘content’ in a digital platform. He said, “At the end everything comes back to the content.” He also gave examples from his own life and what role did digital marketing play and also explained the concept of Google Analytics. Both of their discourse on the topic was very engrossing and enlightening.

Between the seminar, we got a break in which we all classmates seniors and juniors really bonded with each other and had a nice time. The day ended with a relaxing chai and samosa session with my seniors and Somnath Chakraborty Sir.

Thank you APS for arranging this captivating seminar. It made feel that I chose a right career for myself by choosing DADM as my course and made me realise the need for a  digital marketer in the society.

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!

Impossible means I AM POSSIBLE

Nancy Agarwal, GWDD, 2nd Semester, Arena Animation, Park Street

So,here I am Miss Nancy Agarwal to put down my thoughts and feels about my journey to GWDD till date- in my first blog. Before moving ahead I would hold gratitude for each and every person individually who is taking the initiative to read my blog. Well, it has been eleven months, since I got enrolled in this course, where the first eight months I was indulged in graphic designing (1st semester), came across various software like Illustrator, Photoshop, CorelDraw. And then I became a member of the 2nd semester which involved the most crucial rather significant subject that was the web designing.

The first eight months went off very smoothly as it was all about learning tools and menus and off course held a little essence of creativity in it, but it was all the same like learning and retaining and nothing diverse as such, for which I would like to thank the faculty members Deepak sir and Sayani ma’am who really assisted me in learning these variety of software. Precisely, I learned certain things but did not enjoy those eight months, and also “as a person I remained the same”.

Now let me impart you guys one thing about myself that I am , rather I was a very fearful, impatient and sentimental kind of a human being- hanging on with all sorts of negativity in my mind and an introvert kind of a human.

Frankly speaking 2nd semester transformed me( in and out)-it aroused my interest towards my subject, my humanity ,and most importantly I could visualize myself somewhere in my works. Starting from my orientation till today everyday-there is a new gesture that Nancy gets too embraced each day. Though this is a very slow process but an effective one.

“Slow and steady wins the race”

It enriched me with more and more of patience, erasing off my negativity and fear that I had in my subconscious mind (24 X 7) , making me a better human being. And all of this would not have been possible if SIR- Mr. Somnath Chakraborty, my mentor and teacher would not have been there. He is one of the best teachers I have met till date. He is very devoted and passionate towards his students and works. It is his shout and anger that has transformed me to a creative person rather just being a book worm. It is his words that fill me with zest to work passionately and eagerly. I am able to put on my efforts sincerely towards my work just because of his motivational and inspirational speeches that he gives in his every class which helps me to deal with my subjects in a serious manner. Still there are lots to learn and lots to retain. I will try my level best to act patiently and respond fearlessly to this tough but not the impossible journey of GWDD.

So, with this I would like to take a leave before we meet again (very soon) in my next blog—until then thank you guys, take care, stay happy, stay positive and most importantly listen to yourself before listening to others.

Thank you!

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.

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.

My GWDD Is My Identity…

Sattwik Banerjee, GWDD (2nd Sem), Arena Animation, Park Street

Hello readers! I am Sattwik Banerjee and it’s been near about 2 months since I started my GWDD 2nd sem in Arena Animation, Park Street. I am writing this blog to share my story of transformation from 1st sem to 2nd sem.

“Untill you don’t share your story,

                             There is no value for that kind of life story.”

After the miracle of birth and facing the light of earth there are lots of unknown things which we all have to face and learn. Gradually we all get accustomed to every unknown thing. This became a common question in life that after taking the traditional education, and then graduation, ‘What next in this life of rat race?’ Everybody chooses traditional line but choosing GWDD in APS  is just like “ Zarasa Hatke ” career option.

When the time was very close to the end of my graduation, the most disturbing question came in my mind, “now what next?”. At that time it was a very critical decision to go for right options along with dealing with questions like ”how could I get a job very quickly?”. After searching for the answer everywhere I decided to take GWDD (Graphics, Web Design And Development) course. My well wisher suggested me the name of “Arena Animation, Park Street” for taking the admission. Even though I had no idea or knowledge about this field, I got some positive vibes from inside which encouraged me to go for it. In my First semester I was under Saptarshi Sir, and after that Sayani Ma’am. I learned mostly everything about graphics in 1st semester. That time was like soft cloud nature , floating in air however I want but it didn’t take much days to turn the tables.

At the time of ending 1st sem I heard so many rumors like “Ek Bar Jake Dekho, Puri Duniya Ghum Jayegi” and more such things. Though they scared me initially, it also made me eager to experience the journey. We four students were going in “Pinocchio Lab” with our ma’am at the end of  our 1st sem class. Suddenly, the atmosphere turned from Arena Park Street to “Jurassic Park”, throat became dry , chairs were shaking , lots of atomic questions were coming to us & blasted in mind. We all faced those questions like cricket shots :“Front Foot Cut” ,” Hook ” ,” On Side Slog ” ,”Cover Drive” ,” Square Cut ” , “Helicopter ” shots. We all introduced ourselves  with brief description. Sir knew me as “Jomdut”(In english “King of Death”), credit goes to a drama “Jomalaye Jibonto Manush” in which I played the role of that character in APS  Spring festival.

(To see the video please click here : https://www.facebook.com/hulk.animator/videos/oa.1487809924675870/859436824262075/?type=3)

After that day three consecutive days we had orientation classes, we all had been getting ideas about our course , class system , rules & regulation , discipline , manner, way of talking, etc . Unexpectedly, one day we had senior and freshers orientation programe . Somnath Sir introduced us with seniors & talked about seniors’ perfection , duty , process of work and lots more. Seniors gave all of us a surprise gift that we liked. They made us feel special in their way and we felt more enjoyable in the room than before. In this room “I” got replaced by “we”, a team , a bondage . After that we all got some lone time to talk with seniors . All of them are very responsible , dutiful, sharing their experience with us, told us about the rumors, class system , how to present work to sir, in short, a trailer of our upcoming journey .The day ended well with a ‘group-fie’ (Group photograph)

Finally, after one day sir started our classes . Under his guidance we got more involved in this course . Each new day we learned a new lesson. All of us are really motivated with each passing day.

I am really fortunate to be a part of GWDD family , everyone helped us in every aspect . And we got our Singham Sir(Somnath sir) in “Pinocchio Lab”(our classroom).

And now, I believe:

“If you want to see the world, you have to be GWDDIAN  and not a frog in a well.”

Sab Ki Waatt Laga Dali..

Sumaiya Rahman, GWDD 2nd Sem, Arena Animation, Park Street.

Greetings to every eye on the screen! I, Sumaiya Rahman, GWDD (2nd Sem) student have been sharing my experiences through blogs for a long time now. Whether it be a seminar or journey so far, whether it be an event or self-improvement, I have been sharing every ounce of it in these blank spaces of the screen (I would have said blank pages if it was not digital).

(Click Here For My Last Blog)

This time I behold an experience like no-other, gems more valuable than Kohinoor, ethics and morals which make us fit for industry (Get a glimpse here). Pinocchio Lab (our classroom) has a unique way to transfer these into us. And that unique way is called “Seminar & Workshop” (Click here to experience another such a seminar). Why am I calling it a unique way? You’ll soon find out if you stick with me till the end.

Saturdays are always special with some event going on. Similarly, last Saturday (relative to the time when I am typing this) i.e. 14th July, 2018 I witnessed a seminar and workshop most “hatke” (different) from others. The day started with photo shoot and I discovered my hidden talent and hidden affection for camera. When the clock struck 11AM, we all settled down in respective places and waited for Singham (Somnath Sir) to start with the presentation. Before starting anything he gave us a small hint of what is lying ahead along with keeping a bundle of suspense wrapped in white papers on the table, clearly visible to all. What a man!!!! Were we supposed to concentrate on his speech? Or the bundle ? But I tell you, as the seminar proceeded and he started speaking, every word seemed to be a capsule, a remedy for what lacks in us.

The first half went smoothly when we were on the comfortable seat and sir stood there, speaking endlessly. And then after a short time, suddenly the chairs turned to a hot seat and the ambience became heavier than ever.

In the trial interview that occurred we all realized how much more effort we still need to put. Some questions we could answer and some we couldn’t. But most importantly we understood the mental state we have to go through before an interview. Each minute passed by like an hour when we were waiting for our turn. Even though the interview was over, tension stayed back, probably waiting for the results. It was like a mock test in which we scored 40% but got to learn 200%.

The air became lighter when MAHAGURU ( Mr.Ramesh Ruia Sir ) entered and took a session. Suddenly the room was filled with positive vibes and a smile spread on each of our faces. He shared his experiences as an interview candidate and then as a recruiter as well, which gave us a broader idea of the whole system. Well, that didn’t last long. It was then time for unfolding the bundle of suspense kept on the table. When curiosity was at it’s peak we finally opened the papers and found team names with members and tasks written on it. We all sighed and went back to machines to execute the work. Suddenly, the known computers were strangers to us and we felt like we are sitting in another place we’ve never visited before. (Enjoy The Video Here)

The whole day took us one step closer to the job I believe. It was a part of our preparations and I’ll say the most important one, without which we would never be “Job Ready”. One by one, all the sessions left a long lasting impact on our minds. It taught us to be prepared for the unexpected, to handle the pulse when everything around you is going wrong. Technically we can still reach the benchmark. But it’ll be of no use if we cannot execute on the final day, i.e. the interview day. And thus, to prepare your mind not to get knock out under such tension is a big thing that we still need to learn. As said by our dear sir, now we know,

“Hope for the best. But, be prepared for the worst”.
