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”.

  ” Confidence comes from discipline and training. “

Hello readers! I am back again with another experience of seminar & workshop based on job placement & interview I recently attended on 14th July 2018, Saturday. Speaking of seminar, you might be thinking I had gone through lots of lectures. Well only one way to find out. So, let’s get started !

If you haven’t checked my last blog click in the following link:

( https://arenaps.wordpress.com/2018/06/09/koi-bhi-dhandha-chota-nahi-hota-dhandhe-se-bada-koi-dharam-nahi-hota/  )

I was very much excited about this seminar & workshop to happen while it started with a bang by our mentor SINGHAM  (Sir Somnath Chakraborty ) kept a bundle of suspense in some pieces of folded paper including an interview trial. We weren’t that much scared nor excited. We all were secretly whispering to figure out what’s going to happen.

The first half of seminar started with the importance of interview and what we should follow to get placed. There were many important things like behavior and mind set I have to set if I want a job. There were many common things we really don’t follow in order to lead a comfortable life. But what is it? That’s like cutting out my own branch I am sitting on it. I really like learning something with fun and interactively. Guess what, this was the perfect seminar for me.

                  ” It’s not just about ideas, it’s about making ideas happen. Do it!!! “

The second half of the seminar was interview session. We were called and gave trial of an actual interview that we will face in the job interview. By this session we really felt we are still not enough whether it’s small or big mistakes we can’t answer. Answering questions wasn’t the real motive of acting in the interview it also includes our body language and our voice tones. Interview is not a piece of a cake whether you are confident in your theory or practical. It includes your 360-degree performance judged by interviewer that you are fit for the job or not.

  ” My attitude, not my aptitude determines my altitude.

In between the seminar we got a surprise visit of our MAHAGURU (Sir Ramesh Ruia). He started with his advisory session with great suggestions and importance on job interview. It was very informative how he really explained the process he has gone through and some of his experiences. He really made some of the things very clear to us which gave an extra advantage to this seminar.

Check our moments in this seminar in the link below: –

At last but not the least bundle suspense exposed without guessing about it we were divided into 5 teams to give machine test. We were being assigned tasks along with respective team members. We were given a limited time to finish tasks. We were nervous but we worked together as different teams to execute the tasks. This Machine Test was an important lesson for me to check technical skills that includes the work pressure, planning and the deadline of the product.

   ” Imagine – Invent – Inspire “

Check out the video of our workshop in the link below: –

This was a memorable seminar for me and also a desirable experience working together with classmates. After this seminar and workshop, I am transforming myself from the one I was before.

” Whatever the mind can conceive & believe it can achieve. “

Digital Marketing:”Swagat Nahi Karoge Aap Humara..?”

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

Hi friends! Sumaiya Rahman, GWDD(2nd Sem) is back with a hot topic this time. By my last blog (check out my last blog here:

https://arenaps.wordpress.com/2018/05/07/ek-chhoti-seminar-ki-keemat-tum-kya-jano/   ) you all know that we often attend “Zara  Se Hatke” seminars. Last month all  2nd  semester GWDD students were fortunate enough to attend such a seminar conducted by Ramesh Ruia Sir, our Center Head

( To know more: https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=182674505888384&set=oa.1568974669892728&type=3&theater&ifg=1  ). But this seminar had an impact so strong that I changed my mind. Oh yes! You read it right, I changed my mind and updated from GWDD to GWDD PLUS. The most surprising thing is other candidates in our batch did the same. Why do you think one seminar can make us change our course ? Every other student was in the same suspense when we all took the stand together to update our course from GWDD to GWDD PLUS. Questions were asked and we were told to think twice before taking the drastic step, consult with our guardians and inform some other time.

Well, the seminar opened a new dimension for us, a hidden world we didn’t know existed. So now we have enrolled for “GWDD PLUS”. Let me first speak about the latest features of this. It includes everything from GWDD along with other new hot topics. But the main topic which acted as a black hole for us is “Digital Marketing”.

GWDD already gave us the scope to work in different fields as Web developer, Web Designer, Graphics Designer and lot others but Digital Marketing enlarged that field beyond our imagination. Now we can be SEO Consultant, SEO Specialist, Digital Marketeer, Content Management System Specialist etc. The terms are new for us, had to go through a bit of difficulty to understand the meaning but never the less that made it even more exciting.

Previously, having no idea what it is or how beneficial it can be for my near future I never paid much heed to it in the past. My planning was all set. After the end of July (when my course finishes) I would prepare myself for interviews and would try my luck. After that, a peaceful job life… No more assignments, no more home tasks. But as we know, “Man poses God disposes”. Seems like I will have to spend more time  in Arena Animation, Park Street, 3rd floor, Pinocchio lab .

After knowing what digital Marketing is, I won’t mind staying longer. Rather, I would love to. Marketing is the most important part of any business, whether small or big doesn’t matter. Any new invention and only proper marketing can make that invention famous or useful for general citizens, any new product launch needs marketing, and I can keep giving such examples where we need marketing. In the recent days things are turning digital, whether it is Aadhar Card, Ration Card, college application forms or bank works. Internet has given us a comfort zone and decreased our efforts more than 50%. I won’t be wrong if I say that more than 70% of people around the world are dependent on internet. And thus, there came a turning point in the methodology of marketing. That is turning digital too. It gives better scope to the business to interact with the right audience in the right time and location making the whole system more efficient.

I remember after the seminar when all of us exclaimed that the session was really interesting and helped us learn a lot , Ramesh Ruia Sir said, “This was nothing, this was just the tip of the iceberg”. It hit my mind hard and forced me to think “Then how will it feel like to actually explore the iceberg?” And I made up my mind to go for it and give it a try. Yes problems came up. But I knew that if I invest now I will get the return for the rest of my life. Good things aren’t easy to achieve, thus giving me the motivation to stick to my decision and get past those hindrance on my way.

Though the classes haven’t started yet, the fact that soon we will be landing on the iceberg is enough to bring a smile of excitement.

Well.. Digital Marketing is the new hot gossip or point of discussion or point of attraction, whatever you want to call it. I have tightened the seat belt and prepared myself for the ride.. Because my friend…

The Show is about to begin…

Shebi Maurya, GWDD, 2nd Semester in Arena Animaion, Park Street.

Hello readers! I am Shebi Maurya, I had joined GWDD Course in Arena Animation, Park Street last year in the month of May. Its been almost one year, so I am writing this blog to share my experience with you all.

After my graduation my parents asked,“What Next?” At that moment I was totally blank. On the very next day I found a pamphlet at my door and guess what! It was of ARENA ANIMATION and after a week I started my course over there. Even though I had some knowledge about Graphics but I had no idea about Web Designing and Web Development.

In my First Semester I was under Sayani Mam. She is not only a good teacher but also a good person by heart. She taught us Graphics in a very interesting way. So like this my first Semester went very well.

During my first semester, I heard a lot of rumors about a sir name Somnath Chakraborty, who is going to take our second semester. One of the scariest rumor I heard about him was that many students left their course because of his strict nature. The first thought that came into my mind “Unlogo ki tarah kahi mai bhi…..?” but trust me guys as soon as I started my class with him, his image in my mind totally changed. He is truly a great teacher and a perfect guide. As the days passed, I became more serious in my course. Each new day we came through a new lesson. Sir has motivated me a lot and also improvised me. I did many monthly activities with my classmates which taught me new things and the importance of team work. I had attended monthly seminar conducted by our mentor Somnath Chakraborty sir. By word seminar many think boring ambience but in our case it was totally different, we gained knowledge and get motivated, but in a fun and entertaining way.

Wo Kehte hai na “Kuch Pane ke liye Kuch Khona Padhta Hai!” I am a type of girl who dislikes being at home especially on Sundays but I had to sacrifice those. Yes you read it correct! Previously every Sunday I used to go out to enjoy with my friends but now I rarely get time.

From attending resourceful seminars to meeting deadlines, I have tried and still trying my level best to do justice to my course. I have found myself very lucky to be part of GWDD family and getting a mentor like Somnath sir who has helped me in every aspect.

Hence joining GWDD course in Arena Animation, Park Street, is my correct choice.

“ Tum Hi Ho Bandhu, Sakha Tumhi ”

diksha“ Tum Hi Ho Bandhu, Sakha Tumhi….. ”

Hello readers, I am Diksha Singh from 2nd semester of Arena Animation, and it’s been 3 months since I started my GWDD 2nd Semester. I am writing this blog to share my experience with you all.

Life is a journey, Not a destination. We really can’t describe this journey by only one or two words .Ye “LIFE” na ek mixture hai.. . A mixture of happiness and sadness, success and failure , encouragement and frustration, relief and sorrow, and struggle and giving up. Now obviously life’s journey is not PERFECT, but is beautiful.

Everyone takes every step in a very unique way. Though this unique way results into something disastrous at times . Ye unique banne k chakkar mai we take bumpy roads. This is exactly what i did, after completing my B.Com final year. Without having full knowledge about a course i got myself admitted to GWDD course in Arena Animation Park Street. First 8 months were like “Makhann”(butter)- .

Fir 8 months k bad ek turn aya … jo tha hamara 2nd Semester. I was having a bit of idea about the faculty who was supposed to take our web classes but on the very first day of introduction class I realised and cursed myself for just having that so called “Bit of” knowledge. I entered in the class and wished my new teacher- SOMNATH SIR a very good morning, and then sat like a good girl in front of him on the chair.One by one everyone came in, all of us had some expression on our faces, but i noticed that SIR was sitting quietly on his chair with a pale face, and yes that was a “DARAWANA EXPRESSION”. Soon he began to take our introduction class. We all felt motivated and learnt that in “PINOCHIO LAB” seriousness is the only key to success ,or to be more precise ” The only way jo life mai hume kuch acha kar sakte hain “. The time was passing on but the introduction class was not ending. Me and my batch-mates were getting impatient and were talking to each other via expressions. The introduction class got over by 5 pm that day. We all got a trailer of our 8 months ahead journey after just one class.

Days came by and all of us who hardly stayed for 1.30 hours in a class, now started spending our whole day in this lab. In starting it was really hard to sit calmly at one place and work for the whole day. But gradually it became a habit for all of us. We all became family and it happened just because of our mentor Somnath Sir. The person who entered into our life as “HITLER”, taught us the real aspects of life.

He says ” he is rude, rowdy, rowdiest person”, and yes he might be the rowdiest person i ever faced in my life but, also he is the person who gave a meaning to this line “Haste-Haste kat jae Raste”. We have completed our 4 months journey sath mai  ” HASTE –HASTE “ and believe to spend the rest months likewise…

“Ek Chhoti Seminar Ki Keemat, Tum Kya Jano ….”

Sumi2

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

I am back again with another exciting experience on a seminar I attended recently. Here, the question is what’s so special about this one?

Now, what is the first thing that comes to your mind when you hear seminar? Are they boring? Or monotonous ? Or fun to attend? Have you attended one? Did you like listening to the lecture for long hours( approx 6 hrs.), sitting idle, and seldom noting down two or three lines when required? Or saw people around you yawning while 50% escaped after a break? Share your seminar experiences with us in the comment section below and stay tuned to know why this seminar was unusual.

On 28th April, 2018, I, Sumaiya Rahman, GWDD 2nd Sem, attended my second seminar based on “skill -development and career guidelines”, the seminar that broke the stereotypes, that was full of fun and enjoyment, yet rich with much needed facts which even Google would fail to provide. The man behind it was none other than, our very own, SINGHAM (our mentor, Somnath Chakraborty Sir).

How dare he break the so called seminar rules? (hey.. don’t curse me, just keep reading..) How dare he make studies entertaining? How dare he to go out of the way to make his students understand the otherwise boring lessons? ARE these questions relevant? Rather, it should be “How COULD he inspire us in such a manner and show us a way deviated from the rat race?”

I remember sitting right in front and still laughing like it was stand-up comedy. Apparently it seemed that, with sir doing mimicry and advertisement videos playing on the screen. You must be thinking “why advertisement videos for web students?” We had the same question until we understood the reason. What those videos portrayed in few minutes, books, software and tools, menu options couldn’t teach us in the past 11 months. The light ambience was working and we were intensely lost in the seminar.

The seminar was an entertaining break from our otherwise usual everyday classes, charging up once again for the upcoming month. We were given a break in the middle for refreshment and again we boarded the train and moved on.

If I start speaking about what I learned then probably this will never end. But I would say one thing, my visions are clearer than before and now I know which track to choose as my career. My technical skills are sharpened and the frog is finally outside the well, waiting on the edges to explore the world. But the good that this seminar has done to me mentally cannot be expressed in words. It showed me my place and the road that I still have to walk, it taught me that a different perspective to see things is not crazy but unique and productive, it told me that finding out a problem is common and every other common man does that, finding a solution to the problem and executing will make me different from the crowd.

And now I know that I have to K.I.S.S (Keep It Simple, Stupid) my life, my target and my works and entertain myself by my skill, knowledge, passion, dedication etc. That’s why I always follow the below line:

“If you’ve entertainment and enjoyment in your home or vicinity, you’ll never look outside to seek happiness.”                                     – Somnath Chakraborty Sir.

 

If you’ve made it till here then thanks a lot to stay with me till the end. We’ll meet again, next month with more exciting experiences and surprises.
