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…

“ 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 ….”

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.
