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.

Kuch Zaroorate Aisi Bhi

picture2-min

Hello viewers, let me introduce myself before narrating my story. Myself Joyita Paul, student of Arena Animation Park Street, pursuing GWDD(Graphic Design and Web Development) 2ndsemester. I would like to grab some of your attentions towards my blog that am creating for the very first time, hope you will find it interesting while exploring it out.

Although sometimes most of us feels uneasy to pen down our thoughts through words but if you have them, there’s always a chance that you’ll find the way out. But I will try my best to share every single experience of mine related with my second home that is none other than Arena Animation Park Street.

Well am feeling very lucky to get such a platform where one can share his and her thoughts without any kind of hesitation. So, without any further do let’s get started with the purpose behind this blog.Few days have passed since I have started my 2nd semester classes by following the path shown by our mentor Mr. SomnathChakraborty Sir. Every day I learn something new and zara hatke under his guidance. In this blog I will share my experience that I have gained in a recent seminar that we GWDD & DADM students of APS have attended with the subject matter Typography and Blog.

As exciting as the topic the seminar was also a brainstorming one conducted by the two most awesome personalities around Mr. Somnath Chakraborty Sir and our Chetna Mam. Saturday 21st September, 2019 it was when the seminar was scheduled to increase our creativity through their valuable speeches. The seminar was divided into two sessions. The first session was about Typography arranged by Mam and the second one was about Blog taken by our Sir.

The fast session was about Typography where Mam explained us the meaning of it and it’s importance in the life of a Graphic Designer. Mam taught us very simply yet very uniquely, she made us learn about the definition of Typography and it’s origin. During her session she made us aware about the usage of fonts and the colour  theory that we should apply  inour  works and one most important suggestion by her “whenever  you stretch a font somewhere a graphic designer dies.” Really such a beautiful explanation was been delivered by her which made me very much inspired. She also arranged a workshop for us so that we can enjoy her seminar and most importantly so that we may not get bored by hearing her lectures. She made two groups where she gaveus two themes one is Durga Puja and the other one is Christmas then she asked us to create our own fonts according to the given themes, and the winner will win the new version of Silk Cadbury. After hearing the word “Cadbury” everyone got excited and started their works on making the fonts, after few minutes the workshop got over and the winner was announced and was awarded the Cadbury. Trust me I have never came through such lovely seminars till date. And that was how the fast one got ended with beautiful vibes in our heart.

The next session was on Blog hosted by our Singham(Somnath Sir). He is the Singham of APS from Thor Lab.  The ways he makes us teach is very much different than others. He makes things understand to us practically rather than theoretically. He is making us prepared for the industry so that while working  as an employee we will never face any kind of difficulties. Somnath Sir always says that “if you can cross my interview than you can easily cross any other interviews out there.This man is our silent guardian who will never pretend that how much he cares for us, but from inside he is protecting and supporting us. Through his session we came to know what is a blog and what are it’s importance. He advised us how to choose our subjects to write in and what will be it’s contents. He never forces anyone to do something but he only notices the one who has the urge of achieving something. Through his seminar he made us laugh and also made us realise about the importance of GWDD and DADM course  in our  life. That was how he ended. After Somnath Sir, RuiaSir came in to share his thoughts.

Ruia Sir took very few minutes in explaining us the purpose of preparing our Curriculum Vitae. He showed us some examples and told us to prepare our CV’s on time. One most important thing he told us that we must have to complete our portfolios on time, so that it will be easy for us to achieve our dream job.

That was how the seminar day came to an end. All of us got very inspired by such seminar. Well I fell it is never possible to express the entire feeling about the seminar through some limited word stocks as this are the emotions that can never be expressed completely. I feel such seminars are an absolute need for a student’s personal branding. Attending such seminar makes me feel that I have picked the right road to walk on and this road will one day make me reach into my destination. Thanks to APS for arranging such boost up seminars for their students.

I think people who are creative are the luckiest people on earth. I know that there are no shortcuts, but one must keep faith in something greater than them, and keep doing what you love. So always do what you love, and you will find the way to get it out to the world.

That’s all for today, will come back with my next blog filled with many new experiences. Thanks for reading it out.

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-

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.
