indian portal of world cinema and students' film festival

There is an Indian portal of world cinema which is typed dear cinema and read clear cinema. so I see all kind of twisted portal names. you see, how tough is to get a desired domain name. I don't know how come every thinkable and sensible names have already been booked.(someone really making money out of domain names)

I saw and ad about 'work in progress short-films contest' on NDTV. I thought it was NDTV venture but it turned out to be cell-18 who is funding the younger generation ideas.some good intentions @ work.

a tryout on wix flash site maker


codebase="http://download.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=9,0,28,0" allowScriptAccess="never" allowNetworking="internal">

Wix.com

My office-mate Yogendra is kind of cyber explorer he recently introduced me to this online flash website creator called http://wix.com
Which I find is very interesting application it allows the user create dynamic and visually exciting template, transitions and animation. It has got a good amount of graphic resources.
Though, there are a few drawbacks which can get users frustrating that your created work or piece is restricted only on wix server. If you need to put is on your personal page than you don't have the .swf file
So you have no choice but to use their embedded code.
you can not upload your own video or flash work.It only allows pics n sound files
Anyway, it's a great start of good product.

wind of change?!!

It seems in recent times every one is changing or updating their corporate identity. I see a lot more freshness in the enhanced visual quality. May be it is because of the digital revolution. It gives much more control and options to choose.






Though, I don't see same thing applied to government establishments. India post tried it but they could not implement it in its entirety. As we know Indian postal department is not going in profits so changing visual identity at such juncture was undesirable. Since we know it's an expensive process. First of all, I find the old logo much more appealing than the new one; even if they did it could have been a lot better the one they changed to.
Enhancement of visual identity is one thing but customer is also looking for the kind of enhanced services as you are projecting in your visual identity. There are a few who are actually catering enhanced services as well.

हमारे आविष्कार

शरद और मैं आज कल , अपनी मनःस्थिति की वजह से कई ख्याली आविष्कार कर रहे हैं।
जब आप ऍम अन सी वातावरण में काम करते हैं तब आप की रचनात्मकता का एक एक कतरा निचोड़ लिया जाता है ऐसे में अगर आप गुडगाँव में कुआरे विचरण कर रहे हो तो आप का मन विचिलित होना लाजमी है।
हमारी कुंठा कुछ अजब सअ गुल खिला रही है।
न-न , आप ग़लत समझ रहे हैं।
वास्तव में हमने कुछ innovative products सोचे हैं:
1- there should be a device (or this feature should be in corporated in our cellphones.) which can detect compatability and relationship with opposite gender.
you are sipping a hot glass of milky tea at a make shift roadside stall in your neighboring sector market and watching bubbly n hip girls passing by. some of them having fresh but containimated juce from the stall next to you.
you are there just day dreaming.as it happens in our bollywood films.
each evening one wastes hours to guess whether she has any thing for you or should you have enough guts to ask her out.
just imagine! device senses the signals from opposite gender and tells you that the girl you have been wondering about is actually wanting you and waiting 4 you to ask.

puzzled @ night



It has become a routine for me now. I can not fall a sleep before 2:30 am. I know it's not just the metro life there is something more to it but I am not able to pin-point the actual cause.
is it smoking or frustration at office? it's very unlikely, I am not honest here again.

"Mon Ami Grompf"- My friend Grompf





Most children would like to have a pet. Many parents agree, in general, a goldfish, at best a hamster. sinon... A cat, or ..A dog, but small ... No, not a Yeti ... It is not the idea of a stranger. Yet Grompf is so affectionate! Of course, during its growth, he drinks about 20 liters of milk per day. But once it reaches its adult size, it is great practice to hunt moles or accompany the smallest at school. With a basic idea rather original, and a strong sense of humour, Nob an album succeeds tender and funny about friendship that is created spontaneously by children and pets. Everything feels indeed lived since the pet crapuleuse up coverage hair dangling. One finds a majority of the inconveniences of living with a pet, as well as many of its benefits. But before being highly educational, this album is funny. The gags, provided they are crying for truth, mostly laughter, and the characters which focuses on very quickly have not a single reaction that is not entirely credible. The father, especially. Drawing, very cartoon, is very attentive and thoughtful, as well as colors, not allowing one to go under the pretext of the youth of the audience. Certainly not realistic at the edge of the big nose, pulling even on the side of press cartoon as expressions are fly the first time, the stroke of Nob is ideal for this kind of light albums. Grompf, the rotation of Boule et Bill? It is not surprising sponsorship of Julien Neel, both Lou and my friend Grompf are similar in approach children, in the way of showing everyday situations in keeping the funny side, and without ever tipping over into vulgarity or scatologie. A real pleasure to read, for young people of all ages!

comics about India


Every one in media and many of my friends are of opinion that american comics giant Virgin and Shekhar Kapur have done good to bring out the Indian characters and stories to the world masses and made it pop.


But french have done it quietly and in more suave way. I came accross a comic series by french publication casterman. I was surprised to see the quality of its art work. I wish I could see the hard copies of these comics.


anyway, here are some images I found. Do also check the weblink below.

working in Gurgaon.

what, I want that never happens. I wished that I will never have to go to Gurgaon and slog in the damned place. But my battered luck brought in to work here without giving me any choice.
I hate the place. It is harsh in every way. The people, the weather n everything which matters to a sensitive person.
I have started smoking more and drink more often as I want to.
The stress is killing me. I don't feel brave enough to face the reality. I feel left out in the race. all my friends,classmates and batch mates are well settled.
I think, my life just started n I am too old to compete.
Is this just my case or there are other people who feel the same?
I am posting this in a very depressed n drunken mood. i am feeling very conscious to publish it.
but what the heck! my life has already become senseless n shameful so here I go and push the button.

मेरा विचलित मन














मनुष्य का जीवन वास्तव मे एक चक्र है ! बचपन मे स्कूल की चिंता थी !
तब सोचा करता था की कॉलेज मे पहुँचने के बाद सारी चिताएँ ख़त्म हो जायेगी मस्ती से समय कटेगा लेकिन तब बोर्ड एक्साम्स का भारी दवाब सिर पर आ पड़ा ! कॉलेज के बाद एन आई दी की डिजाईन शिक्षा!
एक अंतहीन सिलसिला जो शुरू हुआ वो अब तक जारी है ! अब जॉब के जाल मे फँस गया हूँ ! मन को चैन नहीं ! क्या आदमी कभी अपनी स्थिति से संतुष्ट होता है ? मैं समझ नहीं पा रहा हूँ कि मेरी जिंदगी का रियल उद्देश्य क्या है ? मेरी आत्मा क्यो छटपटा रही है ? कहीं चैन क्यो नहीं मिलता ?

here, I am without any great cause.












A really captivating image of a girl, which I thought was fit for the character of joan . Any way! I was trying the wacom so here is the out lined sketch.

Don't you want to see, what else I tried with wacom? Here are some more images :
















First, I tried to trace out Ravindra Nath Tagore. I think, it came out nicely.

I also, tried some traced out sketches of salma hayek.

मैं क्या कर रहा हूँ ?

क्या मैंने इस तरह का जीवन जीना चाहा था ? अपने पी जी हॉस्टल से ऑफिस और ऑफिस से हॉस्टल ! मैं किस माया जाल मे फँस चुका हूँ ? मेरे जीवन का उद्देश्य क्या है ? क्या एक डिजाइनर कि लाइफ यही है ?












I feel like a labouror. there is no peace of mind. I feel, I am loosing contact with the real world. what is that will give me a direction? I don't know. But there is one thing that I trust GOD, he must give me directions.

भारतीय परिपेक्ष्य मे डिजाईन संवाद

आज डिजाईन शिक्षा स्टाइलिश और अलग दिखने का माध्यम हो गया है जो स्टेटस पहले डाक्टर और इंजीनियरिंग शिक्षा का था वो अब डिजाईन के साथ हो रहा है ! लोग इस क्षेत्र मे पैसे और ग्लेमर के कारण जुड़ रहे हैं ! किसी सेवा भाव या कोई योगदान देने के लिए नहीं !
लेकिन अब भी कुछ लोग हैं जो डिजाईन और भारतीय समस्यों के बीच एक तारतम्य बनने कि कोशिश कर रहे हैं ! एम पी रंजन एक ऐसे ही शख्स का नाम है !

कामिल्ले पिस्सर्रो

मैं काफी दिनों से इस बारे मे एक पोस्ट लिखना चाहता था ! पिछ्ले साल जब मैं मुम्बई गया तो फोर्ट एरिया से मुझे कुछ इरविंग स्टोन के उपन्यास मिल गए ! उनमे से एक उपन्यास देप्थ्स ऑफ़ ग्लोरी था जो कि कामिल्ले पिस्सर्रो के जीवन के बारे मे है ! इस उपन्यास ने मेरे उदास मन मे उत्साह का संचार किया! काश मे भी पिस्सर्रो कि भांति स्थितियों से मुकाबला कर जीवन मे कुछ कर दिखाऊ ! कितनी सरलता और सचाई है ! यह उनके चित्रों मे साफ झलकता है !

अभी कार्य चल रहा है इस लिए पूर्ण विवरण नहीं लिखा जा सकता

lucky luke feature length film


I have been a big fan of Belgian comic series Lucky Luke. I just love the drawings style and treatment of the premise. humor is sophisticated but you know how the french humor is. I think this comics has the best caricatured horses and guns which I have seen, If we leave Asterix out of the competition.
I don't understand french but I enjoyed the visuals.
