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.

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.

GWDD Safar Hai Suhana

Hello readers! I am back with my another piece of experience  in GWDD PLUS  journey in Arena Animation, Park Street. Hopefully it will put an impact on all of you  and help to learn from my mistakes. If you haven’t checked my experience on internship, then check out the link below: –

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

Only 1 month left to complete this course. Now I feel lucky to choose this course to achieve my dream job as Graphics and Web Designer. GWDD taught me so many lessons which really helped me a lot to overcome challenges which might have been impossible for me to manage. Working as a Design Intern I really like doing graphics design but it’s not easy enough to manage web programming classes at the same time. At first I only stayed within the class timings (TTS 11-1pm only ), but now it takes an entire day in the class. The important thing is researching and updating myself with the latest trends (Graphics & Web Designing  2018 onwards) so that I can compete with current competition I have to face in the market. I tell you, web programming is not easy as a subject. For this I must be focused and passionate to learn these languages in more details .Day by day, I am sacrificing to do everything to achieve my target.

My mentor  Singham Sir( Somnath Chakraborty) is really motivating me through this challenging time I am dealing with everyday. At evening, when I reach home, I work on my Internship till midnight or sometimes longer. After that I do my research work on web, complete assignments and projects in the course. In spite of all these I also participate in competitions like Creative Minds, GWDD monthly activities and seminars.

( https://www.facebook.com/groups/727106617412875/permalink/1610809839042544/ )

I got all the inspirations from my seniors/alumni’s, from their efforts, hard work and success stories which are motivating for me. All my alumni are well settled and succeeded to achieve their dream jobs. Whenever I get frustrated and feel weak, I always think about them, their struggles. If they could, why can’t I?

With this internship I am getting an idea what I will face in the job and thus helping me to have good communication skills, planning, organized work and maintaining the deadline. It’s never easy at first but I never like to give up.

At times I really feel very over-pressured handling both together. Sometimes I do lose my temper and become frustrated. But one thing never came in my mind, i.e. to quit. The experience that I am getting here, the struggles that I have to do and extra load that I am taking will pay off in the near future, I can feel it. I can feel the changes in me and improvement in my skills. GWDD PLUS  is not just a course but a full training session where I got trained to broaden my thoughts, to come out of the well, to think out of the box, to see the world and live like how I want to live, different from the crowd, deviated from the rat race. The ethics and moral are now in my veins, which will never leave me. And thus, as life moves on I will move on with all these valuable riches.

I know I have to take risks. If I win I will be happy, if I lose I will be wise.

Kargil Shaheedo Ko Salam

Arindam_Img

Arindam Bhowmick, GWDD (2nd Sem), Arena Animation, Park Street.

Hello readers, I am back with another blog sharing experience of our monthly activity which is conducted every month by GWDD (2nd) Sem Students of Arena Animation, Park Street. Like every month we make plan and execute. So, we decided to dedicate this monthly activity to our “Shaheed Jawans” of Kargil War (Operation Vijay), lest we forget. The infamous Kargil war was fought about 19 years ago. Since 1999, Kargil Vijay Diwas is celebrated on 26th July. Our activity occurred on 20th July remembering sacrifices made by our Indian Army Worriers.

“Kargil Vijay Diwas remind us of India’s military prowess”

We started our monthly activity like every activity we do, but this was an honorable tribute to salute our national heroes. Our team was very much energized to proceed this activity. We were all set for work and started our work as we planned. In the meantime, we took chai-break (Morning energy drink) which was very much needed to keep up our good work within our work. To keep our environment patriotic, we were listening to patriotic songs while working in our own.

“Our flag does not fly because the wind moves it, it flies with the last breath of each solider who died protecting it.”

We felt very much energized in presence of our MAHAGURU (Sir Ramesh Ruia).  He really appreciated our theme of this monthly activity. He shared stories of battles in Kargil war. And also, his experience of Kargil war Memorial visit in Dras, in the foothills of the Tololing Hill. It was really informative and sorrow moment of martyrs of Kargil war.

“Either I will come back after hoisting the tricolors or I will come back wrapped in it, but I will come back for sure.”

-Capt. Vikram Batra

We are really secured and sleeping well for the sacrifice made by our soldiers. We should pay tribute to our soldiers. If we are patriotic we shouldn’t feel proud by having the facilities from our country we should be proud to give and do for our country. A life of solider is not that they leave their mother to serve its like they join another mother to serve (BHARAT MATA). I am really touched by this activity we did, it’s really proud moment in Arena Animation, Park Street to tribute to our soldiers.

“Service Before Self” – Indian Army

Our team worked really hard and gave their tribute through this activity to Our National Heroes. Our final work was executed well as planned. We really felt proud by the tricolours which really showed the dedication and importance to our work.

Get a glimpse of our activity here.

This Activity is really made me learn so many things which I learnt in one day lesson of a year. Most important this work was impossible with out team work, dedication, team coordination, passion. This was an oxygen for after whole month of works. I am really Proud to be an Indian to pay tribute to our heroes of nation.

“Nothing is possible without unity and integrity.”

Aaj Ki Shaam, Shaheedon Ke Naam

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

A monthly activity conducted by the students of GWDD (2nd Sem), Arena Animation, Park Street is no more a secret to the world. Every month we decide a theme, plan a layout and execute it on the final day with team work, team co-ordination and hard work. But the last activity (i.e. on 20th July, 2018) compelled me to pen down my experience. Before proceeding any further I would like to mention the theme first, it was on “Kargil Vijay Diwas” which is celebrated on 26th July.

The day holds a beautiful story of bravery, sacrifice and patriotism behind it. Not many of us know the significance and thus mostly it is neglected. Our whole team decided to dedicate our last activity to the martyrs of Kargil war.

The morning was no different from others. Everything happened as decided and we were set to work. It was after our first picture got posted in the Facebook, inviting everyone to join us that we got to know that MAHAGURU (Ramesh Ruia Sir) would like to join us to share some wonderful stories. Who doesn’t like to listen to stories! The spark of excitement was clearly visible on everyone’s faces and all were again energized. When sir arrived we all waited curiously to explore what’s lying ahead. And let me tell you, those few moments that he spent with us were enough to make us speechless, numb and feel ashamed of us. In a situation where we often complain about that costly dress we couldn’t buy or the pair of shoes that were not on sale or may be the meal which wasn’t tasty, there are humans working hard 24X7 to keep us inside the safety bubble, to protect us from foreign attacks and maintain peace in their home, their motherland. They give their lives everyday, staying isolated from the rest of the world so that we can see the morning sun rays or enjoy with our friends and families. And every morning, when we take our lives, our protection for granted we never think that all these are a favor on us by some selfless son or daughter of our country. The stories from Kargil War shook us from inside. The difficulties that we couldn’t even imagine were faced and conquered by our Indian Army.

It took me a while to come back to the activity from those bravery tales of our soldiers. But that brought a major change in my outlook, in my work on that day. Suddenly, I wasn’t working because I had to. I was working because from my heart I wanted to pay them the homage and dedicate all our hard work, our special day to them. Like other activities, problems did arrive. But where different souls were working with the same sacred intention, problems hurdles and obstacles had to be defeated.

The work seemed to be less but turned out to be a big unexpected bundle. Once again, due to this miscalculation we crossed the deadline. But at the end, when everyone looked at the board, the final output of the whole day, the tri color of Indian Flag, a jolt of patriotism, a smile of satisfaction reflected on our faces.

This activity left an impression deep on the soul. It taught us more than anything we have faced in Pinocchio Lab (our class room) till now. Along with making the bond stronger between the team members, it also made the bond stronger with our “MAA”, our motherland. And now, I feel proud to say that “I am a GWDDian, I am an Indian”.
