Morning shows for an anurag kashyap film was housefull. Journalists made a beeline outside, waiting for the feedback. Police was called in to manage any threat. The problem of course was the threat inside the cinema halls. The threat called ‘mediocrity’. Story: Lets give the credit where it deserves one. Tommy is a drug addict rockstar whose career is going downhill.  Daljit is a corrupt officer part

PREMONITION

This is Ajay Sharma, a visual artist from Baroda. Hema Upadhyay was a dear friend and classmate and we shared the Fine Arts studio right from the beginning till the end of our study for 6 long years. It was the most shocking news for me and the whole artist community to get to know about her murder. Coincidentally two days before this happened to her I had some dreams about Hema and Chintan warning me that something wrong is going to happen to them. I have written an article on Hema in which this dream is also mentioned. PREMONITION

Sorry, but I am no Fan of Fan

Rating: 2/5 Surprisingly everyone seems to like Fan. But I think its a very average old fashioned Shahrukh Khan centred illogical connectless movie. The movie revolves around one and only Shahrukh Khan and other people are used just as props. The movie is about a die hard fan of Shahrukh khan, sorry, Aryan Khanna (what’s the difference) who calls himself junior Aryan Khanna and wishes to meet him in person someday. However when he actually did, things didn’t happen as he dreamt of and from junior Aryan Khanna he becomes anti Aryan Khanna. The only thing I liked about the

Stop To Email

Mailing allows us to get work done quickly with people across cities, across buildings, across work-stations (J), across geographies. However, without the emotional signs and social cues of face-to-face or phone interaction, it’s more possible to be misunderstood. Also, mindless emailing overstuffs everyone’s inboxes. Let us try Mindful Emailing. With a few mails during the week. Or all of them. COMPOSE an email. STOP to take one long deep breath. Pay attention to the breath. (count of 5 on the inhale and 5 on the exhale, if you like) THINK of the person to whom the email is going and

Be Nice

In a study called ‘Project Aristotle’, Google wanted to know the secret to building a productive team. Their data-driven approach concluded that the best teams: respect one another’s emotions; and are mindful of one other. It has less to do with who is in a team; rather it is about how the team interacts with one another. At the heart of Google’s strategy is the concept of ‘psychological safety’ a model of team work in which ‘members have a shared belief that it is safe to take risks and share a range of ideas without the fear of being humiliated’.

Mindfulness @ Work

We have an open-office policy at work. While this  conveys collaboration and transparency, they are difficult on ears and concentration. …Printers. …Photocopiers. …Chats. …Corridor Discussions. …Ringing phones. …Speaker phone conversations …Voices in the cubicles. …Sounds generated by co-workers. There is no getting away from these sounds and other ‘white noise’ that constantly and consistently intrude into one’s flow of thought. There are ways we can create sound buffers – listen to music or use apps that help obscure distracting sounds. The best thing however that we can all do: let us remember that we, too, generate sounds that intrude on

Tick Tock. Tick Tock.

There was a farmer who lost his watch in the barn. This watch was given to him by his father and there was a sentimental attachment to the watch. He searched high and low, but could not find it. He enlisted the help of  a group of children, promising them a reward. They couldn’t find the watch either. But one little boy went up to him and asked to be given another chance. “Why not” the farmer thought, “After all, this kid looks sincere enough.” So the farmer sent the little boy back in the barn. After a while the

IKIGAI – The Reason for Being

Ikigai (生き甲斐) is a Japanese concept that means “a reason for being”. The term ikigai is composed of two Japanese words: iki (生き?), referring to life, and kai (甲斐?), which roughly means “the realisation of what one expects and hopes for”. It lies at the centre of the interconnecting circles of Passion, Mission, Profession and Vocation. It refers to mental and spiritual circumstances under which we believe our lives are valuable. It is the process of allowing the self’s possibilities to blossom. It is not necessarily linked to one’s economic status or the present state of society. Behaviours that make us feel ikigai are natural & spontaneous actions
