My idea to start a Book Club

Clubs are generally meant for creating a group of people, always otherwise engaged having no time to make and participate in a group, but having interest to be counted in a forum of completely unknown persons tagged together. Book Clubs like wise consists of persons who never read and study seriously any particular book but veers around all the book headlines and gathers information on books only to recommend its reading to others.

I want to start a Book Club where any one who will never read or write a book can join, exchange ideas and collect information of little value. The importance of the club is to reassure its members that they still live, can prove their existence to the world, and get opportunity to feel that they are the movers and shakers. They pretend to read books, make opinions, draw conclusions and above all prove that they have a sharp brain that the uncaring world is not utilizing it. They can all the abilities of proving themselves as original thinkers that the world can go without them. That all the knowledge, wisdom the world gained so far is nothing in comparison to the sharpness of their brain.

Where is Extraordinariness?

The Rise

The Rise

Everyone is overtly of covertly aspiring to be extraordinary in his or her own way, to be something different from the maddening crowd. It is to satisfy his or her alter ego. To be different makes one feel great, leads to a sense of self fulfilment, a self created sense of satisfication. Yes if we actually analyse everyone minutely we will find that nobody is similar, everybody is clearly distinguishable from the other in his or her own way. The different character he/she exhibits makes him/her distinguishable from the other, and it is his /her unique selling proposition. It is the self identification mark. When these characters are well distinguished and defined one should be taught to cultivate these to protray as great and extraordinary in its own way. The real problem is encoutered here how to make these characters great and extraordinary. To make any nuances/ characters great and extraordinary, the character should have all the insticts of becoming useful to the a greater mass, to the society, to the world on the whole.The mass for which the character is to be useful determines its extraordinariness.
the persons contentment in life is directly proportional to these characters embedded to his/her pesonality. The more identifiable these characters in the person the more succesful the person can feel in his/her life. By actions, words and above all his/her behaviour in the society he/she lives these characters are attributed. By constant consciousness of this one can control/modify in a more cultivated manner his / her actions, words and behaviour to portray the unique characters inherent in him/her. Just to feel extraordinay.

Presentation makes a story tick

Posted by kdpgrahi on August 3, 2008

 Stories are intended to regale others, by the way to teach a lesson with a moral transcript. It can be heard, seen, read, or above all felt. Feeling stories is a completely different art, that can eventually be termed as poetic, the story then elevated to a poem, long or short. Stories are stories to be told, in spite of  availability of a myriad of avenues of presentation, visual,readable etc.

   Telling a story denotes presentation of a story in any form, in any medium.The contents of a story may or may not be good, or of any use, but the telling style, the way it is told makes it conspicuous. All the make or break is decided from its presentation style. How bad a story might be, the style of presentation will make all the difference. Hence telling a story is termed an art.

   There are a number of factors to to be taken in to consideration to prepare a good presentation. Basic things are the theme of the story, the intended audience, the medium, the presenter and the aids of presentation available. Long stories are required to be segmented to provide the audience the required breaks between to ponder and recapture the themes covered. As a number of medium is available it is better to take help of multi-media. Contextual editing to present a homogeneous combination is very much essential in this case. The dictions, visual arts and audible music should be so tuned, synchronized to satisfy the intellectual appeal of the audience.You can call these as science of story telling . Lastly the theme of the ending ie the conclusion is to be chosen as such that should be able to create a long impact on the audiences’ psyche.

Be a Friend in Need

Posted by kdpgrahi on August 2, 2008

There is a saying in India, God helps those who helps others. I fervently believe that this is applicable all over the world, not only India. As man is a social animal, and so that, man lives among other members of the society and no person is singularly self fulfilled in all respects, one has to depend on others for a variety of purposes and it is ones prime duty, I mean social obligation, to cater to the need of the fellow being, which we call help. With out any body’s help in one way or other nobody can survive, we all will agree.

Helping others in time of need is our sole motto of creating/establishing a society, so to say it is our religion, the aim of life, the purpose of life. How far we go in exploring the new boundaries in knowledge, wisdom, so far we come to conclude that everything is meant for the benefit of the society, which in another way means helping each other within the society. A mutual help and co-operation is all that all the religions, scriptures, literature invariably espouse.

So, on this day of my birth( I turned 45 circumstancially today) I implore others around me to at least be conscious of our fellow beings live within our circle above and in spite of all our sectarian bigotries.

Gods destiny prevails always above all the temporal world.
