Real Deep Dive Link

Hey all! It’s Friday and I know you all are very happy about the coming weekend. I am still planning what to enjoy doing more. Well in my case, I either apologize for not being regular in posting blogs or make promises for posting blogs regularly :)  But today I want to introduce an issue which you all are aware of, but just not stepping ahead.

It’s been more than 3 years, since I am here in Pune, but hardly in touch with real people out there. So I jumped into taking parts in events, where I can have the liberty to interact with interesting identities. One of the experiences that I am eager to share with you today is ‘Innovation Jam Pune’ (conducted once in a year). The session started from 1st to 3rd March ’13 at ThoughtWorks, Pune. I loved the ambience of the company, comfort & good care that they took of us (participants) and got to know many just after a sweet Hi!

The event’s motto was to let join bright minds together and build an innovative bizz plans. We were 35 in total (divided in team chosen by us) and given 48hrs. of time (for deriving a business startup from a given theme) to ignite the mental spark big time.                 Birender & Aditya (face of the comapany ThoughtWorks) were mentors and our mental fire extinguishers :) So we started discussing….

more discussion….more discussion…started to turn up towards giving a shape to mental capabilities…We had internal excitement, enjoyment, competition, exchange of mixed feelings etc.But all in all, more than the effort put on the innovational concepts, we experienced the sweet sense of togetherness.And on the third day, when final leaving is on the part of the chapter, saying “be in touch” are the words that expressed the feeling of never let go of such a nice company.Everybody is into socializing and it seems to be a never ending scenario. Through internet, your friend list is exceeding 200 but still it’s not enough for you. Don’t you think, it feels greater when you see & hear your friend’s laugh rather than liking on their smiling pretty face? I am attached to only 100 souls through internet, but deeply I feel void. I chat but can’t express feelings, I like but can’t sense it totally, I comment but it sounds to be unheard. Are you feeling the same?I suggested many to go out, get in touch with most of your city. But, I know what is holding you back viz. shyness, lack of time, you will say “I am an introvert…. doesn’t like to mix well with others” etc. etc.        Frankly speaking, first few seconds you are strangers but as soon as you say Hi or receive a Hello, you get sudden sense of knowing that person. So get out!! ;) And dive into the real world connection.

Most importantly, I would love to thank the site eventbrite.com that brought me to have the best 3days time spent with the above, absolutely lovely personalities. Thank you all for reading this long & strong blog :)…. Once in a while I blog so I guess it’s worth the patience right ;) Would love to have your contribution for facing the live world. Till then Adios!!

First Ever……Brand Promotion

All my dear folks…. Your mail inbox seems to have no message from crimsonapril.wordpress. I totally agree, because it’s been a long gap since 2nd December 12. Well there are many news to disclose then.

In this gap, I have attended many events here in Pune. I mentioned you already about Helix Events, after that I have been to Masala Dossa, both of them are event organizing companies. I got so darn inspired by the upcoming artists, new jolly faces, what their brains work upon was captured on the table they were displaying.

And there is no stop. The every other event I was attending, were conceiving all different sets of artists. Very few I can say were a repeated face to me. But the Josh & Junoon was same with each stall owners.

To be very frank, initially (before attending the events) the concept to me was below the ground. I was like “It is so understated, so boring, so embarrassing being a ‘stall owner’ “. But when I actually attended one in Pune, my entire perception got vaporized (as soon as I entered the event). The kids, youths and aunties having ‘posh’ lifestyles and ‘hi-end’ profiles where on the other side of the table. And I was watching the combination of art & attitude, skills & style, stuffs & mentality they carry…….. amazing experience.

So the point is, for the first time, I had the brand promotion of Crimson April just the same way. The event (‘Coco Bazaar’)was organized by Kitsch Mandi at Cocoparra, Pune. And  I was on the other side of the table (as a stall owner) and displaying my art. And trust me “that was big time fun and enthusiastic moment”. My skills been appreciated, my talent has been seen and boosted and my visiting cards were all over by the end of the event :) . Ohhh… what a great feeling when people come to know what are you made for, why are you here, what is your identity etc…..

So show up guys!!  I feel you deserve to be there and declare the purpose of your presence.  The importance of being you. What I sensed is, a missing feel, when only you know that you are alive… you have to wake up the people around you (apart from your family and friends) and make them know what is it being YOU.

Thank you all guys for many likes and followeens, which actually made me go out there and supported me as true buddies. And yup, do let me know what have you done these many days without my mails ;)    Adios!!

Teachings

Howdy guys!! I was feeling like going into past and spend some time recalling those books which shaped me mentally and emotionally. Well, obviously like in your case, my parents also played a vital role for this. For some of you, your school teachers might also helped you grow up in your abilities. To be frank people, I have taken leaves not in days but in weeks, obviously because of which hardly any teacher knew me as a decent student. Parents help us till we grow up and stand strong on ourselves. What after that??

Since childhood, my father asked me and my brother to join a government job. Well, he was a part of that industry (Bhilai Steel Plant), in computer department (there is no other field in which Keralites enter :)). And all of us (our family) were pretty aware and pleased of the facilities given by Govt. But me and my brother felt something wrong. Then we took a move away from that fact, rather than getting attracted towards the package. Although that was a late approach by both of us, we did engineering (which every kid being a Keralite does) and just few years before, we actually found our respective passion line. But still guys, its never too late for knowing yourself better. What do you think?

Rest you all know, I am an interior designer crimsonapril.wordpress.com/me-the-blogger and my brother a professional photographer bimchum.wordpress.com. My brother always being a rich daddy for me, my mental growth goes in unstoppable way. But for you all, I will definitely recommend you to have this

This self help book definitely will blow up your mind. If you are planning to quit your  job and start something new of what you are capable of… this book will lead you to a direct way with money dealings. Teach you more about how to manage your money more than earning. Now you will say “lets first earn, then we will manage”. Well, if you are reading my blogs, you are earning either from your family or friends or job or business. Otherwise…. no PC, no internet, no blog reading and definitely no Facebook!! Read this book and start MANAGING your MONEY.

Next, since we all have fun. We still feel like relaxing our brain in a peaceful manner. Even if we are not going through any trouble, you still would like to enhance your life. And you do it, unknowingly or unintentionally. That is exactly been called ‘Maturity’. If someone tells you “dude you are not mature yet”, it feels like you does not exist in this planet. Well, for me maturity is understanding yourself first, then others. keep asking yourself , what better can you do for self and others. I learnt all this from

Creative Visualization by Shakti Gawain, crafted beautifully to have a look inside your heart and brain, heal it and use it in the best way.

I know how to manage money and myself, but there is something that was lacking or missing. I was feeling the void…. I was still delaying on task to be done may it be from calling the workers to visiting the site to deal with the clients to etc. Everyone have a tough job to be done everyday. Lets call it ‘the ugly work’. Trust me, everyday…everyone has to deal with it.  For some that might even be bathing or washing clothes or in major case, seeing your boss’s face. It can be anything, any work, that make your expressions go so bad while you say “s**t man I have got this work to do”. I have a answer to deal with it.

Mark Twain’s strategy : If the first thing you do each morning is to eat a live frog, you can go through day with the satisfaction of knowing that, that’s probably the worst thing that’s going to happen to you all day long.

Then comes my daily inspirations, related to my passion

Magazines and books….about color, designs, Gurus, themes, ideas, a li’l bit of copying styles ;)

Last but not the least, its always fun to go back to your childhood memories and cherish the stupidity that we all did, which at those times was a wise deed done by us. My way is by this

Hehehehe, I read these comics in a secretive way like people read Cosmo(s).

Do share with me what all are the books, novels, magazines, comics etc. inspired you in what all ways. Happy Sunday to you all. Rock the place where you are staying right now and have a wonderful day. All happies….. Adios!!
