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.

Arindam Bhowmik, GWDD,2ND SEM ARENA ANIMATION,PARK STREET

Hello readers, I am Arindam Bhowmick and it’s been 3 months since I started my GWDD 2nd Sem. I am writing this blog to share my experience with you all. As I am passionate about web designing and development I joined GWDD course in Arena Animation, Park Street.

My experience in 1st  sem was moreover good and my sir was one of the finest teachers for graphics. Needless to say, I don’t think I can ever forget him. When I was at the end of 1st sem I heard lots of rumors like “You’re doing GWDD? Oh my God! Do you know that your teacher is very rude and arrogant?. When such rumors come to you, curiosity to meet the person is an obvious thing. I was like “What will happen next?”

The first class in 2nd sem was all about introduction and a productive one where we got information about our course duration, systems to be followed, and what we are going to learn. But I was still anxious to know “What now?”

The second class was a bit different that we didn’t expect. It was a surprise for us by seniors where they cheered us and shared their experience of Pinocchio Lab (our classroom). They made us feel special in their own way and I felt more comfortable in the room than before. Days passed by and also the rumors I heard. The classes were nothing like the rumors. Well, first lesson learned- Never trust rumors.

And thus, our team dedicated an article to the seniors, showing our love and gratitude through words.

( https://arenaps.wordpress.com/2018/03/07/candles-of-the-way-dedicated-to-seniors/ )

With more and more number of classes I improved not only as a student but also as a human which helped me a lot in learning and my practical life where I was a game addict (Urgghh! I had to leave my games for this). I was so surprised to see that I could overcome the addiction (that was apparently an impossible challenge for me) and get back to real world. Now I know, game addiction was waste of my potential. I realized it’s easy to live in the comfort zone, with no passion, doing the same thing again and again while it’s hard to fight for your dreams to come true and surrender to success. That is what our life is meant for.

Most effective lesson I learned is to organize, whether it’s desktop or real life. I learned about my strength and weaknesses, my skills and loopholes (already started working on it) which is really helpful.

Only study and no recreation will not help you to achieve your goals. Thus, in GWDD I started different activities along with my other team members which is held every month where we work as a team to do something creative, enjoy and learn teamwork as we all know when ‘I’ is replaced by ‘WE’ even illness becomes wellness. Team work is unforgettable.

“Together brightest”

It’s really an amazing experience to attend monthly seminar conducted by our mentor, Somnath Chakraborty Sir. When we think of seminar we visualize some usual boring ambience. But in Pinocchio Lab it’s totally a unique experience I had. What’s your view about a seminar? Well, this seminar was full of fun and entertainment along with knowledge and facts not easily found in GOOGLE. This seminar helped me a lot to go through my skill development and confidence needed.

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

Now, the belief is-

“Suffer the pain of discipline or suffer the pain of regret”.

Sumaiya Rahman, Gwdd, 1st Sem, the perfect comfort zone. How happy those days were, flying in the sky and taking things for granted like they were supposed to be like that! Who expected I would end up in a never ending hustle of GWDD, 2nd Sem? I started my journey three months ago, as a candidate of GWDD, 2nd Sem, apparently with the equipment I thought are sufficient. Eventually I realized those were nowhere close to what I need for accomplishment of my goal, my moto.

If you’re not equipped for your journey, probably you’ll return from the half way or get lost in the many hurdles which need equipment.

As the realization hit, changes flooded in. I started a search to upgrade  my equipment and get trained for the toughest part of the journey or the warfare. Change is the only constant in life and the true meaning of it is understood now.

The biggest of all can be the capability to be organized, whether that be the folder system on the desktop or personal life. A confused state of mind, trying to grab anything and everything on the way, filling the attic of brain with every knowledge possible and lots more literally degraded my performance and started spoiling my potential. A small habit of organizing the folder system clicked the right point  and tamed my thousands of thoughts wandering out of my control. Like knowledge, thinking can be good when it gives productive results. Unnecessary thinking or knowledge can astray the traveler from the destination. Though I am not yet a pro at it, but  beginning of such a habit is increasing my efficiency. And still the words ring in my ears,

“If you have PROPER planning, 90% of your work will be PERFECT”.

Somnath Sir.

Saying that, one more thing should be mentioned, i.e. a proper routine to organize our daily tasks. It is still fresh in my memory, how I used to wake up late in the morning and think for 5 minutes whether to leave my bed or to sleep longer. Using the phone at night was obvious and working was “mood dependent”. One afternoon and one line changed my sleeping habits and also the time of my work.

“Ebaba… Tumi phire chole jau. 9tai ghum theke uthle r web designer ba developer hote hobe na.”

Somnath Sir.

( English translation: If you have to wake up at 9 AM in the morning then you cannot be a web designer or developer. )

I still miss my bed more than anything else and now every morning I think, “When can I again sleep as I used to..”.

Often, more than 50% of our working time is not productive or we don’t manage to cover targeted areas. A proper routine distributes the time equally to all the small but important tasks and thus saving us from the obvious chaos. But the toughest part is to stick to the routine in thick and thins, which still seems difficult to me at times but trying is consistent, and the effects are visible. A routine can work as a catapult on your way, taking  you closer to your goal faster than you can think.

The Pinocchio Lab(our classroom), which became our second home in GWDD, 2nd Sem, undoubtedly incarnated few values in a very short period of time. It was here that I realized how important it is to spend quality time with family in spite of pascals of pressure on the shoulder and still carry a contagious smile, letting your loved ones know that you are doing good. I used to take my family’s love for granted and made usual mistakes which every youngster does, ignoring them for the sake of my virtual personal life. That made me understand that all they expect from us is our happiness and time, not the monetary things we possess or our so called attitude.

When talking about family it is mandatory to talk about the family not by blood but by relations and actions that this place has gifted me. “Me, my and myself” was the agenda before entering Pinocchio Lab. Well, it took some time but the magic finally happened. Individuals combined to become a team and move ahead together holding hands. Thus, “me” transformed to “we” making each one of us a leader in ourselves, installing the habit of dragging forward the members who are left behind.

All these happened in the right time and right place, when it should have happened. As said by our most beloved “Singham”,

Chatu Gorom Thakte Thakte Ruti Seke Nau”.

(“Tava garam rehte rehte hi roti seklo”.)

( English Translation: Bake the bread while the oven is still hot. )

Roti”  is still under process and the ingredients, flavors are still being added to it, making it better everyday.

We, GWDD students  were finally at the end of our first semester and an invitation to enter Pinocchio Lab, 3rd floor. The lab was famous, inviting numerous rumours .  Some said positive and some had negative thoughts. Both the comments left us, the new batch, in utter confusion. The first day wasn’t enough to make us feel like home in those four walls. The confidence to continue the course was in question and the only thing we wanted to know was “What will happen next?”.

It was the second day in the Pinocchio lab. Changing our old habits of coming late, all 8 of us were present in the waiting area of the third floor. Through the glass of the gate we all could see three people other than sir. Curious, we took the seats and waited for instructions from sir. After a while the four of them came out and entered a different room.  We thought sir would ask us to get inside and the usual classes would resume. Well after the first introductory class we all expected that & were unknown  of the events coming up!

As they all returned and had a small discussion, sir asked us to come inside one by one. One of us opened the door and noticed the chair stacked in a queue on the right while the three of unknowns stood on the left showering claps and smiles upon us. I must say, they knew how to make someone feel special. When curiosity was at the edge of exploding and excitement was visible sir introduced us to them. They were our seniors. It was the first time that we would ask about the cataracts and rapids and ups and downs and hurdles and obstacles and gardens and valleys coming ahead in the journey from trekkers who reached the summit. That couldn’t be a better experience.

After a while sir left us alone. Taking the advantage, we bombarded questions and they gifted answers. Soon we found ourselves comfortable in Pinocchio Lab, the ice was broken and worries were long lost.

The interactive session washed away most of the queries and anxiety from our mind. The transformation of the seniors to saviours and power house of support was quick and unnoticeable. But the effect was prominent and made everything fall into place.

What we thought to be the end, was the just the beginning. Irrespective of the time and problems we shared with them, they never turned their back, passively helping us to adapt to our new environment.  “Thank You” seemed to be two mere words, not matching their greatness and our gratitude.

A moment came when we realized that we were all a part of the family where protection, love, care and support was in abundance. And thus, they will never be detached from the Pinocchio Lab and from our mind. The mark they left  incarnated to a never forgettable lesson.

Debdatta Pal, GWDD, 2nd SEM (APS)

Hello readers! I am Debdatta Pal, a student of GWDD. While my course here is at the verge of completion, I would like to share my experience with you all.

Often there comes a moment in life when we may become so clueless about the path to continue our journey with, that our frustration and disappointment reaches a pinnacle. Well, I did face such moments and I guess many of you have as well. When stumbling among options to take forward my career with, one fine day I came across this very course, GWDD in Arena Animation – Park Street’s website. Even though I had some knowledge of Graphics but initially I was not much aware of the entire procedure of Web Design and Development. But when I gradually started learning it here, a new liking towards this subject started growing in me. You can say the subject is kind of addictive. The more I am engaging myself into it, day after day I am getting attached with it.

As everyone says, learning never stops. Whatever might be our passion towards, believing in ourselves and working hard immensely for it, is the ultimate key.

I have learnt that while trying to meet the deadlines, I could bring out the best of myself. Through learning GWDD, I have started to acknowledge so many of my positive sides I never knew I possessed. It’s as if I am able to unlock a new aspect of myself every day and thus re-discovering myself in the process. Also in the past months, I have got an opportunity to participate in a logo contest organised and certified by the Uttarakhand Government which has further motivated me to work harder.

A journey is associated with proper guidance and support. And my journey here wouldn’t have been possible without my parents’ support and my mentor Somnath Chakraborty sir’s guidance.  His vision and knowledge are what making this journey enjoyable and resourceful for me.

In today’s fast forward world, everyone thrives to get a work done within a blink of eye and thus making things as digital as possible. Hence, a career in Graphics, Web Design and Development is a perfect choice where there is scope of utilizing the gained knowledge in making a better tomorrow.
