Yesterday,we went to India Today Mind Rock 2014 held at Sirifort Auditorium.This day turned out to be one of the best day blended with tiresome,as we are the people of mass communication so we needed to focus and cover entire event.
In the morning when we reached there,there were thousands of students from schools and institutions looking at them,the first thing which came to my mind I need to highlight from this entire crowd.We received our passes and complimentary goodies.
Finally we entered completing all the formalities to security check.On the way we clicked few selfies which were uploading directly on our social networking sites or profile.
The first performer was a Delhi Rock Band which did set the tone for the coming hours.Piyush Goel the Independent Charge for power,his session was of an half hour so with blend of humour he conveyed the policies of Narendra Modi.He was also asked by Rahul Kanwar what is the difference between him and PM Modi.To end his session he was said to dance with his wife who was seated in the audience.The crowd was good and cheered them irrespective of their background.He is also the member of Parliament Research helped.
Trust me,this was just the beginning the crowd roared like a lion when Arjun Kapoor walked on the stage with his charming personality and danced for the crowd Mark my words if I would have been mad.He discussed his journey from early life to present.What all he went through and what is the vision for future.From then on our work started we clicked photographs and made videos.
I guess you or one might think this is it but the cheering went crazy especially the boys when the beautiful diva daughter of famous badminton player Prakash Padukone,nowyou must have figure out,Yes it was Deepika Padukone.She also spoke about her journey.She also promoted her film which will be releasing this Friday Finding Fanny.This was the moment to show our craziness and get a chance and to highlight myself as well as my college and what happened was just magical.I won the chance to dance with her which is going live in TV sets and Youtube.I made a mark asked few questions.
Then it was lunch time as we went there initial thought was we will get coupon food must be ok and expectation weren’t that high.Seriously everything was just perfect about the day we were served with quality food McDonalds and other brands.We were discussing in Rs500 the services and platform we got was awesome.One of my classmate Rahul Arora was so happy to see non vegetarian items.Jokes apar
Overall,the perfect day in all respects,we learned alot and will try to work on various things.Courtesy we would again thank our faculty for letting us know about this fest or Youth Summit.In future,i will also be performer or celebrity who knows,I didn’t know that morning I will be playing Dandiya that too with Deepika Padukone.
We took a break as we were really tired clicking,shooting and shouting.So we chose to remain outside for sometime.
The man who is played in every club because he states Issey Kehte Hai Hip Hop.Yes none other than Yo Yo Honey Singh the crowd went insane joined him later by Alfaaz and Money Ahuja.They just rocked on the stage the entire crowd was dancing.
The best thing as we know happens in the last so the last suprise was the closing performance at 6.45 by the famous singer who sang songs like Bulla ki Jaana and Tere Bin,Rabbi Shergil the man from Punjab in real is effective and passionate animated character.He just mesmerized and hypnotised with his live performances.

Why do we celebrate teacher’s day?
Since the year 1947 , 5th of September is celebrated is celebrated as teachers day as per the English calendar year as a mark of tribute to the contribution made by teachers to the society.
5th September is the birthday of a great teacher Dr. Sarvapalli Radhakrishnan, who was a staunch believer of education and as well known diplomat, scholar, president of India and above all a teacher.
When some of his students approached him and requested him to allow them to celebrate his birthday he said instead of celebrating my birthday separately it would be my proud privilege, if 5th of September is observed as teacher’s day.
Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru said about Dr Radhakrishnan he has served his country in many capacities .But above all, he is a great teacher from who all of us have learnt much and will continue to learn.
PSBT FILM FESTIVAL 2014
JIMS Lajpat Nagar got an opportunity to attend the film festival held at India International Centre on 2nd Sept.The idea of this visit helped students to examine some of the basic principle of documentary filmmaking. this kind of outdoor screening showed how the technological changes and new equipment has influenced it and how the film maker works on feature film or the documentaries.
The film illustrates how to look best at a particular subject and act as a mirror to the society by researching the topic in depth. The documentary film that students saw basically based on the issue of gender and sexuality…how women have to suffer the problems that she faces due to gender violence. The different documentaries were based on women focused on sexual harassment that women in a city like Delhi faces on a daily basis, how the big fat Indian women are discriminated due to her bad body image in the surrounding.
Hence, these films highlighted individual directional style and suggested the ways about how to germinate it, how different strategies and sound played an important role in the characterizing the best documentaries among them. Students also got chance to interact with the renowned industry people like Suhasin Muley ,a well known Indian actress in Bollywood and Marathi films as well as television. She won National Film Award for Best Supporting Actress in 1999, for her performance in Gulzar’s film Hu Tu ,her serial UDAAN is on air in ZEE TV these days and with Vijaya Muley is a documentary filmmaker, film historian, writer, educationist and researcher..Students also got chance to participate in follow up session with the film makers.
I started modelling at the age of 17. I started with walking the ramp for Manish Malhotra at DLF Mall, Saket in 2010. The walk opened a new vista for me in the field of modelling. I also got an ad with the popular tV actress Simar in the same year. After that I starred in few Bhojpuri Albums in 2011. Since then I have acted in many nukkad nataks. After walking the ramp for many events, I tried my hand at Mr. and Miss. Teen 2014. I was one of the finalists in the event and was voted the ‘Mr. Congeniality 2014′ at the event.
I chose JIMS because the exposure here will help me achieve my goal in media, entertainment and fashion industry.
Director – Rajesh Jala
Let me tell you in the beginning only that it’s a National Award winning film, but it’s very ironic. Normally, we do perceive the National Awards as the acknowledgement of talent, creativity and uniqueness, but we also take it as something which is funded by the establishment. So, if the jury finds a film made on the troubled childhood of some Benares ragpickers top award worthy then it’s like the acceptance of the government’s failure in understanding the grass root issues.
The documentary makes it very clear in the beginning that the audience should not expect a feel good film as it features heart wrenching images. Well, the director actually meant it as the premise of the film is Manikarnika Ghat and its adjacent places. Those who know Benares also know the importance of Manikarnika in the life. The local mass comes here to burn the dead bodies. So, the story begins with a bunch of children whose prime duty is to help the visitors in arranging the pyre and other religious rituals. Once the pyre is reduced to ashes, they get their wedges and begin to look forward to the next dead man. The situation is more absurd rather grim than what my words are conveying. Just imagine the condition of children spending day and night among burning pyres. The collective failure of the society lies not just in their presence at such a place, but in their absence from schools. Poor, downtrodden, illiterate and bitten by the bug of globalisation, these kids have turned into a walking inferno. Foul mouthed, hardened from inside, drug addict, these are the real by-products of social negligence. And mind you, this is not a Bollywood film where they will still behave as per the popular expectations.
There is a point in the film where a 10 something child sings the National Anthem. His version is distorted but very meaningful. It’s a mixture of the songs he hears around him and reminds the viewer of their own vulnerable state.
Rajesh Jala tracked his characters for a long period and this reflects in the film because the children open their darkest secrets to him, but sometimes this proximity works otherwise when the children call him sir. It immediately establishes the distance between both sides of the camera. Also, it seems he is trying to put words in the children’s mouths. But, it’s a minor fault and the film offers so much that you would willingly overlook it.
The later part of ‘Children of the Pyre’ becomes more interesting as it showcases songs and dance. The cinematographer and the sound designer have done a marvellous job as they didn’t let any single significant event slip by. The mood and the flavour of the city is evident in a scene where the pyres are burning beside a ‘cultural’ event. This is that reality which nobody wants to address. We have neither become capitalists nor have remained socialists.
Sometimes the seven protagonists find the National Flag while picking the shrouds from the holy river. They sell it for Rs 3-5. The use of Kumar Gandharv’s song in the background also gives the story a new dimension.
To me, the most significant aspect of ‘Children of the Pyre’ is the anger with which these kids are growing up. Trust me, they can become anything if not channelized well, and then we will curse the system for their emergence without realising that we have also failed them.
Overall, ‘Children of the Pyre’ is haunting, finely crafted and important. I won’t mind giving the National Award to such a film again.

The children of the pyre is a real life,self narrative story of seven children who make their living out of dead ones.They live under extreme condition at India’s busiest cremation land manikarnika in varanasi. They are living very strugling life some burn the dead bodies some collect shrouds or if people refuse to gave them they snatch it or steal it just because they have no option. They sell these shrouds to make their living.
The director Mr. Rajesh S. Jala has try to show their whole life in just 75mins and he suceeded in that also. He potrait all the things how they live, what they do,what they eat. In this age where children must go to school have fun but they people become so mature they know this thing that their is no one who will feed their family thats why they have to do this work. Due to this kind of environment in which they are living they started doing all those thing which a children should not do.
They started smoking , drinking alcohol, eating tabacco and drugs. They normally eat 25 packets of tabacco in a day and says these things gave them energy to do this kind of work. This was very much heart touching documentary. The shocking thing was that they are treated as untouchables just because they touch shrouds and dead bodies of several people who are making other souls free from this world they are treated as untouchables. Even they have lots of problems and struggle in their life they try to live it freely by enjoying it. Laughing, smiling , being abusive and fighting has become a part of their lifes. The short 75 minute film tell us helplessness leads us to do every thing to make our living they are even ready to spend their lifes with dead bodies.
They started living their lifes with fear and now they are used of it. Some times i feel my self so lucky that i m having everything. T dont have to struggle so much. As they are doing just to eat two times of meal. Mr. Rajesh S. Jala try to end his film by asking a simple question. They people dream or not. I am very sad to lisen this thing that tgey people become so mature and they know the reality check of their lifes that they have stop dreaming and some of them have guts to dream but they know its impossible to dream.
We can say it a pure real film without any kind of speciap seffects or mixture. This is the reality check of their lives.
