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.

Trekking, Masti Aur Abhiyaan, Ek Kahaani Yeh Bhi

Burhan Mullamithawala

Hi everybody! I am Burhan Mullamithawala from 2nd semester, GWDD, Arena Animation, Park Street.

This is my third blog and I would like to share my recent experience of my trekking excursion to Hampta Pass, Manali. This trip was only possible as I had completed my GWDD Project, Bootstrap Project and my Creative Minds Project in time and surprisingly my Sir Somnath Chakrabarty gave me a week for refreshment which I utilized on this trip.

I always admire adventure and like always I wanted to do something different. So I planned a trekking trip to Hampta Pass with my friends a month ago. We contacted Adventure Nation after referring to several travel guides and we found that they had reasonable prices with good traveling experiences.

We started our trip from Howrah Railway Station on 6th June, 2019 by Kalka Mail and reached Chandigarh on 8th June, 2019. From there we proceeded in a car and reached Manali the very same day. As expected, Manali is a dream come true. The weather and atmosphere is something out of a movie. I have been there twice before but every time I go, it always feels fresh.

We enjoyed the next day in Manali, roaming the Manali Mall Road eating 6-in-1 softies and other street food. There was a huge crowd as it was peak season. We went to Himtrek Base Camp in Old Manali from where our trek began. We stayed there for the night in hugely built tents as they had organized an orientation for trekkers to give us guidelines on what to do during our trek. We got to meet new people with whom we would be trekking and they were all excited and enthusiastic for the upcoming adventure which lifted our spirits as well. We started our trek the very next day at 9 a.m. in the morning. We traveled to Jobra in a jeep, some 19 km from Manali. Jobra was at an elevation of 3000 meters. From Jobra we walked around 3 hours to Chika base camp. On the way, we witnessed the scenic beauty of the Western Himalayas, comprising of maple, pine and oak trees. The streams were crystal clear and the water was drinkable. We reached Chika and enjoyed the evening with snacks and snapping the picturesque mountains surrounding it. We stayed the night in tents. The temperatures were pretty cool and the four of us snuggled and slept.

 

We started our trek next day to Balu ka Ghera which was a 4 hours trek which was at an elevation of 3600 meters. The initial stretch took us through the rocky and icy banks of the river. We actually walked on 3 meters of thin ice which was pretty dangerous as the river was flowing right below it. Soon we started walking through the snowy valleys. As this year it had snowed heavily, we witnessed a lot of snow on our way. As we reached Balu ka Ghera, it started raining heavily and we reached the base camp and crawled inside the tents to keep ourselves dry and warm. The temperatures had dropped drastically due to the rains and it rained almost all day. The temperature had dropped almost to -4°C and we could barely feel our hands and legs. We had to wear warmers and jackets to stay warm and we only came out of our tents for lunch and dinner. As the temperatures were freezing, the four of us decided not to go further for the trek as we didn’t have proper trekking gear and some of us also fell sick. That same night we witnessed a very bad storm that sent chills right in our spines. We decided that we will descend for Manali the very next day as it was not appropriate for us to stay any longer. We discussed with our guide and he obliged and took us down to Jobra base camp.

But we got wet on our way down as it rained all the time and all our clothes were wet. The Himtrek Base Camp sent a car for us for Manali and we checked into a hotel and stayed a day in Manali. While on our way from Manali bus stand, we met the other people in our group and they told us that we took a good decision of leaving Balu ka Ghera early as the weather has worsened the very next night and they had to bear the brunt of the storm.

All in all, the trip was amazing with some life altering experiences. We witnessed all kinds of weather; sunny, rainy, hailstorms and super windy but we were fortunate that we returned home safe and sound. Yes, I regret not reaching the summit of Hampta Pass but this doesn’t stop me from going on more adventurous trips. With proper gear I will one day reach the summit of Hampta Pass and push myself to achieve such limits.

As I am back in my daily schedule, I have resumed on creating my portfolio for my career with all my energy and dedication.

Thank you for taking the time to read my blog. Hoping to share more of my experiences.

Ajab GWDD Ki Gazab Kahaani

burhan

Hello guys! I am Burhan Mullamithawala from 2nd semester, GWDD, Arena Animation, Park Street.

This is my second blog. I would like to share with you my experience in the past 3 months of coming in the 2nd semester of GWDD, Arena Animation, Park Street and my latest experience in participating in our exhibition Pratibimba2019.

As I shared with you in my last post how I have changed in the last 8 months, only this time I would like to tell how responsible I have become as a person.

Learning HTML language in GWDD has widened my perspective of how little I know about today’s technology. Its vastness blew my mind but it didn’t stop me from taking it as a challenge. Instead I understood its concepts and logic that is to be used while designing a web page. As our mentor Sir Somnath Chakraborty tells us that Web is a vast ocean and it can never be learnt in a limited time. Every day it’s changing and expanding through its boundaries. Only we can do is to keep learning and adapt with it. Currently, I’m progressing in learning this vast language and I have already begun in designing my first webpage for my first GWDD Project. It has been a challenging experience but I have the support of my teacher, my family and my seniors Koushik Dalui, Salina Marandi and Ausmita Pal. Apart from being just seniors, they have become friends as well. We share a great bond and no one could tell that we have a senior-junior relationship.

Coming to Pratibimba2019, it’s an experience that cannot be explained in words. We all worked hard for it to be a success. We made short funny clips where we enacted different roles. I for sure got to see a different side of myself. I got to play Gabbar (Macchar) Singh and it was a fun moment. I also got to see my funny side where I enacted in a funny interview. And that funny side did also come out mainly because of one person, my senior Sattwik Banerjee who played my interviewer. His acting chops are a class apart but more so are his funny gags which made us laugh out loud. We also got to play roles where we were smitten by Tanushree Roy’s playboy character and we ended up having fun due to Koushik Dalui and Sandip Mondal’s hilarious acting.

All our videos were on display for our parents, friends and other esteemed guests to see and we definitely got a great feedback. These videos showed people that our lives just don’t revolve around studies but we also have fun. It showed that we break the monotony of living a robotic life and do something opposite where we end up enjoying and learning from each other. We got to interact with people during the exhibition and it helped us in learning how to present ourselves to different types of crowd.

All in all it was a great experience for me. I learned how to take charge of my life and present myself in front of the camera and people. But all of this would not be possible without the guidance and support of our mentor Sir Somnath Chakraborty. He truly brings out the best in us. He is many a time harsh on us but that is only because he knows our capabilities and he wants us to get out of our comfort zone. He sees a great potential in me and I know I will reach my destination because I have his unconditional support.

Thank you for taking the time to read my blog. Hoping to share more of my experiences in GWDD, Arena Animation, Park Street.

Sattwik Banerjee,Arena Animation,Park Street,GWDD,_2nd_Sem

Hello readers!, a very warm welcome to all. I am Sattwik Banerjee, student of  Arena Animation Park Street, GWDD(2nd) Semester, wants to share my experience with you all about our recent GWDD monthly activity. which was  on 25th January, and the theme  was ” 70th Republic Day Celebration “.

Every month we decide a topic for our activity, make a proper layout regarding the same and execute it to the best on the final day with my GWDD family. Every month I wait for our monthly activity. This is not just an activity, it gives us refreshment which is needed after a full month of frantic schedules and work pressure. We start planning our activity a week before the activity date, an event is created on social media platforms and every student of APS is invited to the upcoming activity. This time, we got a golden opportunity to show our love and passion towards our nation India . If you missed my first blog check it out in the link below :

https://arenaps.wordpress.com/2018/08/10/my-gwdd-is-my-identity/

Now let’s see how me and my family execute the work. As usual all of us gathered in our  “Thor Lab” (our classroom) by 09:00 AM under the strictly informed by team leader and we started unwrapping our props and bags. We started, clicking a snap and posted it on social media, warmly inviting everyone to join with us. All of us already had a proper planning in mind, according to which we all were supposed to proceed.

My job was to make a perfect base and make a tricolor flag. My team mates were busy with their respective work. Our team took part in the activity with an energetic approach. After a while, we took a chai-break ( Source of our energy ) which was needed to maintain our energy levels for the activity. We were listening to patriotic songs while working .

” Aye mere pyaare vatan, Aye mere bichhade chaman
Tujh pe dil qurabaan ,
Tu hi merii aarazu,  Tu hi merii aabaru Tu hi merii jaan…”

When clock struck 1:30 PM , we had lunch break. This was the foremost part of our activity because we took lunch together including Somnath Chakraborty Sir. After completing our lunch together we were again back to our work, but this time with little pressure because time was passing by like speed of bullet, and Somnath Sir warned the deadline time that we could completed our work within our deadline at 5 PM. But we break the myth by completing our work within time. After completion our day activity, we take a group photo with our model.

Our team worked really hard and we paid our tribute to our country through our activity . Our final work was executed well as planned.

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!
