The Artist's View

The artist is the seeker of beautiful things,
To reveal art is the artist’s aim.
Some see beauty in the simplicity,
Others seek order in chaos.
Those who find beauty in things that matter and in things that do not,
Are those who understand the essence of this earthly existence.
Art is but the expression of a fraction of your imagination,
And in expression we find the door to our soul.
Those who understand their emotions can express themselves freely
And for those, the door opens up, maybe just enough to give them a glimpse
Of what they are truly capable of.

How about the critic?
Is he one who can translate his impression of beautiful things to suit his views?
Or is he one who seeks perfection in everything he sees,
Perception of beauty crystal clear,
Intolerant of even the slightest of blemishes
That might mar the innate perfection of what he beholds.

An author, who is he, if not a translator of thoughts into words?
And who is an artist, if not the translator of thoughts into images?
Each is human; each has his own perfection and his own weakness.
Flaws and perfection dance in tandem in one’s life
And it is upto the perception of the viewer, the audience and the seeker of beauty
To determine which impression he wants to perceive.

Dedicated to a friend, Shradha Aiyer

Awesome BTL campaigns and Brand Activations!

Okay, so with great power comes great responsibility. Uncle Ben clearly never worked in an ad agency. Even with the chindi powers of an account planner, there comes the responsibility of coming up with the wildest strategy ideas that the brand can accomodate. This brought me to an oft-used old school marketing technique that's been making a comeback in recent times - BTL, urf Below The Line.
See, there were these two sisters A and B. They were strippers at a club. A was the sleazy but slightly less beautiful one while B was extremely hot yet of a nicer nature. Owing to their personalities, their performances were far far different from each other. A always took centrestage, twisted the pole, held the entire crowd's attention. B on the other hand, was the lap dancer, keeping herself to private performances. Since A was right on the stage, she got a lot of tips from the entire crowd, but she could never tell how much she'd get, but it pleased everyone, so it pleased her as …

Classroom Shayaris!

Been a long time! MICA's a blast and there's a lot to do. But in the midst of it all, classroom capers are commonplace. So, presenting a few of what I like to call Classroom Shayaris, courtesy yours truly being bored to death from four hours of sleep and a droning professor:

Tere pyaar ne kar diya pagal,
Tere pyaar ne kar diya pagal,
Shareholder's equity is called share capital!
Wah wah wah!

Dum maaro dum, mit jaaye gum,
Dum maaro dum, mit jaaye gum,
A share's issue price can be at a premium!

(I think this deserves an applause :P )


Dikhne mein toh tu lagti hai badi sweet,
Dikhne mein toh tu lagti hai badi sweet,
Liabilities and assets come in Balance Sheet!

(sadly jis ladki ko yeh shayari maari, she ran away disgusted. I haven't been able to figure out why :| )


Birthday post and BACK TO BLOGGING!!

(Left to right: Abhishek, Jahnvi, Yours truly, Karen, Zubair, Neeraj, Alisha)

Gosh! It's been almost a month, and what a month it's been. Pressure, studies, CAT...crazy stuff. But all that comes later. Coz today was my birthday.

People say you find your true friends in the direst and most trying of situations. Situations that test your bond. That test your trust. That's of course true. But in no way is that the only way to know who your true friends are. Because, today, I realized what friendship is all about. It's not about all that mushy stuff, being there all the while, doing things for you....that's all valid, yes, but it rarely happens in day to day life doesn't it? A friend is someone whom you care about, someone you can be yourself and more with, and they won't judge you either way, because they know you in and out.

I used to think a 21st birthday is all about spending time partying, drinking, celebrating your step into the &q…
