MAKING OF 'SAVE ELEPHANTS'




My sister and her son Aditya, both returned from Kolhapur as her Diwali vacation got over on 11-11-11. Aditya's dad had bought him a big long truck toy which he showed me the same day. Girls play with dolls but boys love gadgets and automobiles.My nephews did loved speedy cars which run by pulling backwards and setting free. But for Aditya more than speed, size of the vehicle matters. So this truck has became his favorite toy now.The sound of alarm and the lights make it a special toy.Due to it's size, I decided to make a video using this toy.I am a big fan of Golmaal series and the car stunts in Golmaal are too good. Children love to make stories using their toys and crashing toy cars thrills them too.

      I decided to add an emotional angle to it. Children are sensitive and innocent. They do not have any fear,till we instill some. They find dinosaurs interesting and snakes beautiful. They do care for animals more than adults. I still rememb…

Jhunka Bhajji : Accidental recipe 
(Warning: Never try this at home :P) 






     I love cooking. Being chemical technologist, I have really good experience of working in a chemistry lab and experiment with chemicals. I do same thing in Kitchen. YouTube is my source for inspiration for cooking. I usually try recipes by Manjula and of course Sanjeev Kapoor (Khana Khazana Channel on YouTube). But sometimes, those dishes turns into disaster. I usually don't like wastage of food,and hence try to modify it as I had habit of manipulations in readings in chemical labs ;) In very extreme case I feed that recipe to dustbin.I will share one of such recipe which I prepared accidently due to fiasco.

CAT 2011

MY 'CAT' EXPERIENCE 


Common Aptitude Test was considered as one of the toughest entrance exam few years back. Last 2-3 years the trend is changing gradually.CAT 2011 had different format. There were two sections 1) Qauntitative Abililty and Data Interpretation and 2) Verbal ability and Logical reasoning. Each section had 30 questions and time allotted for each section was 70 min. Apart from 140 min. of CAT exam, 15 min of EXAM tutorial was compulsory before actual exam so as to understand online examination method. It was made mandatory to appear 1 and half year before the scheduled exam time for checking and bio-metric identification in prometric centre. I can understand that materials like watch, pen, bags and mobile are not allowed in examination hall,but the worst thing was even the hanky was not allowed in side prometric lab. I felt bad for those student who were suffering from the cold and were sneezing continuously in the air-conditioned exam lab.Neither they provided w…

Why CAT?

This post is about my personal experiences of Common Aptitude Test. Well, let me clear it in the beginning itself that MBA aspirants won't get any tips, guidance or any food for their brain here.       MBA is considered as one of the prestigious degree in India which can give opportunity to earn higher package salaries.No it's not true, as not all MBA's get good jobs. B-school brand matters a lot. Hence the race for admission in IIMs and IITs is getting fierce year by year. The season of Management exams starts from October with CAT and ends with CET in Feb. In between SNAP,XAT,NMAT,ATMA,MAT exams dates are placed,mostly on Sundays when local trains are generally not available due to Mega blocks and the only option of BEST buses are flooded with people.              I completed my MMS (Marketing) from BVIMSR, Belapur in 2008-2010 batch.Although MMS admissions are based on CET (State level) entrance exams, I have experience of appearing for CAT twice in my life. First tim…

Extra Time

EXTRA TIME


        Ask any football player what is the importance of 'extra time' in life. Watch pleading faces of students who beg for extra time during examinations when the paper is lengthy. 'Extra time' means a lot. The only difference between successful people and unsuccessful people is how they manage their time? Everyone gets 24 hrs in a day, but what matters is 'how you utilize your time?' 
                How will you spend two extra hours, if days are made of 26 hrs? The question made me think, do I really value time? And to my surprise the answer was 'NO'. In my life I have spend lot of time in sleeping,watching television, surfing net and many other such activities which can not be considered as fruitful. I have seen some movies 10-10 times ( Jumanji, DDLJ, Sholay, Terminator etc. list is long). I have been active on internet from almost a decade ( yahoo chat, orkut, facebook and now blogger). So is it worth that person like me who waste so mu…

Webisodes 10,11,12 are already present on these blogs,but as these are animations prepared on 'Go Animate', I have uploaded 'First Impression' as Hasya Jatra webisode no. 10 (considering large number of viewers of  Ashwamedh Kalamanch channel on YouTube).                Ashwamedh Kalamanch is an art and cultural center (group) in Mumbai founded by me in August 2010.We started it to propagate India's art and culture among children through various Art related Competitions,Events,Workshops,Seminars.We stared with a successful event of AKDC'10 (Ashwamedh Kalamanch's Drawing Competition 2010) in Oct.2010 and then followed Marathi drama 'Lakh Lakh Chanderi' , 4 short films, Hasya Jatra webseries and several other videos. Although Video-making was just a part of 'Brand Awareness' strategy,…

Some Drama competition's finals took place on this day. And some producers deliberately release their commercial dramas on this day. Marathi theater has great history from 1843 to 2011.

After state Government's corrective measures, the Marathi movie theaters started getting subsidy and many Marathi movies were released tax-free. But this could not bring audiences …

Keenan and Reuben murders case

Image
"Mumbai killed my Son",was the sentence by Niraj Grover's father. And now Keenan's friends are blaming Mumbai for it's in-sensitiveness. I have grown up in this beautiful city and I feel sad when someone blames Mumbai for anything. It's one of the most secured place in India to live. Mumbai people are really helpful and have great unity. How can city which have heart to accommodate and feed lakhs of people be responsible for someone's murder? How can a metro city where people from different languages,religions, states and countries live together happily will turn into crime city,suddenly ? Let's accept the fact that the migration,the poverty and the unemployment are major reasons behind crimes. But then what about crimes like eve teasing and rapes which are due to poverty of  characters and conscientiousness ? 
                    Those who can think rightly, can act rightly.Thoughts can be expressed properly with words. So to vent off their anger, …
