‘Sanju’ is the biopic of one of the most treasured Bollywood actors, Sanjay Dutt, or "Sanju" as he is fondly called by his friends and peers. Similarly named, the movie is directed by Munnabhai creator and director Rajkumar Hirani and produced by Vidhu Vinod Chopra. The film is inspired by real life events of Sanjay Dutt. It takes one on a roller coaster ride of highs and lows, but most importantly it touches on the spirit of life, of how we rise from the very ashes of our destruction.

Content in Context

INITIAL BACKGROUND Content, as per basic definition is a form of communication of ideas, as well as a medium with which thoughts are also expressed. However content over the years has become much more than just a news article. It has become a basis for the creation of the future as well as the documentation of the present. In the initial times, dating back centuries to the prehistoric age, content began as simple yet significant signs and symbols. The simple and complex words that we know today, ranging through hundreds of languages were once sets of singular drawings. The form of content back then, though may seem complicated to us now because of how we know it to be organized, for the Neanderthals it was fairly basic. As time went by, it fell on the next line of civilizations to curb out all the forms and feature the finer works. With time therefore, civilizations like the mayans and romans helped content move from the confines of just being physical print, such as monumental statues …

Be strong but not unbreakable

What is true courage? Is courage standing on the cliff and jumping off fearlessly or is courage the power to accept the fact that one is afraid to do so?  Both of them are acts of courage, of being able to embrace oneself; of being the person you were born to be. Do not be afraid to feel weak or strong, or the pressure of judgement, feel exactly as you want to and express it as it is. You do not have to be perfect or act so, nobody in this world is perfect. Humans make mistakes, it forms their essence, everyone falters at some point of life. In trying to be perfect, we forget the real perfection lies in being more ourselves.
It is important to realize that our best efforts always do not make it to the ultimate result, maybe our efforts were not good enough to reach that destination, but it does not in any way indicate that one hasn’t given their best. You don’t have to live up to expectations, including your own forecast. You need to realize that it is ok to make mistakes, it is comp…

War and Peace with Dreams

Dreams are the cherished ideals or ambitions which one hopes to pursue and achieve in life. Dreams have different connotations for every human. Some dream to become a billionaire and some just dream of attaining happiness. Whatever the goal may be, dreams make us and at moments also break us apart.
This dream of being someone or attaining something keeps us going, it is the eternal drive for the human conscience. Every great transformation and change begins with a simple dream. Yes, even the idea for our biggest search engine came from dreams. Founder Larry Page dreamt of Google, seeing that he & Sergey Brin could make a business by “downloading the entire web onto computers”. You don’t have to be extraordinary to actualize your dreams, you just have to put your heart and soul into that very ambition and the results will yield.
Another important aspect when it comes to one's dreams is that there is no overnight success. To be toiling away one day and have a massive hit the next …

Meaningful Music of the Ages

When we look at the state of music today, some things appall us while some things bring our hopes back and keep them there until we’re forced to lose it again. Truth be told, if we are from the early 20th century we know the olden music. For those from the late twentieth century, the likes of Beatles, Queen, The Rolling Stones, and not to mention Led Zeppelin are the definition of music for us. If we’re from the 90s we definitely have seen enough of everything because of Guns n Roses, One Direction, Backstreet Boys, Blink 182, and Spice Girls. We also look back to the previous times and say “Those were the days”. We can but hope that they still live in the hearts of the coming generation as well.
Truth be told, Western music hails supreme among many of the people in Kolkata as well as other parts of India alongside their own. The situation however with Western music is less of a debate as we see less meaningless songs being produced by them.

Life gives you choices. You just have to choose

In a world where we are constantly in search of opportunities to make something of our lives, we lose the motivation to actually live life. Now you might go into a stream of thought as I start to tell you how all that you mainly have been doing with your life uptil now is worry about how much time you spent at work today; the vast load that was still sitting on your desk when you left at around 9, or even how less you got paid at the end of that tiresome month. The concrete analogy I am putting up here is that all this time you’ve been spending in worry; torturing yourself with questions about why haven’t evolved yet; in the meantime, your days are going by slowly, and your inner heat is also leaving you. You have to admit it, you ain’t going to stay fit without working out and you certainly aren’t getting smarter without continuously learning new things. So the way I see it, you have to start living your life more than you live your job. Now I know what you’re thinking: Easier said t…
