    "We can't change what we're not aware of, and once we're aware, we're forced to change". For a long time, these words of Sheryl Sandberg have served as a stepping stone in my life. These statements by Sheryl Sandberg are utterly enthralling, and the manner she has managed her life in the face of adversity has caused me to see her as my most revered leader of the contemporary era. Her experience at Mckinsey and Google, crafting an evolutionary road to become Meta's Chief Operating Officer (COO) and turning the tables for them, has left an imprint on the globe for all other women to surpass themselves and always ask themselves, "What would you do if you weren't afraid?"

    “Leadership depends on the leader's leadership style and their way of communicating ideas rather than the leader”, says Tata. Sir Ratan Tata of the Tata Group is a more transformative leader. He established Tata Group as a global brand. He has served as an inspiration to executives inside his firm. At every level of the Tata Group, leaders are involved in decision making. Ratan Tata is an example of a leader who is devoted to the Triple Bottom Line. Ratan Naval Tata has also been honoured with the "PadamVibhushan" and "PadamBhushan" in 2008 and 2000, respectively, for his contributions to commerce and industry. In my perspective, he is the most notable Indian leader whose inner ideals and exterior deeds reflect an advanced higher degree of responsible leadership.

    I'm writing this article to simply discuss how parents raise their children and the effects we as children experience. It's not easy to raise a child as a parent, but it also depends on the level of care and concern they provide. They see to it that the youngster grows up to be mentally robust, well-rounded, and successful. Some parents are extremely rigid, while others are more lenient. I'd give a quick overview of both categories and how they affect us.

    I'd want to share a bit about my movie-going experience. I just wanted to say a few words about the movie because I know we all have various perspectives and feelings about it. I would certainly not make a statement, but this is simply my view. It is not a romantic film, nor is it a film with melodies and beauty, nor is it a comedy. A film with emotions, a film that discusses reality, a film that presents the truth, the agony, and suffering that individuals have endured. It's not a staged event; rather, it's something that happened in the past but no one knew about. For years, the truth was kept hidden from the public.

    I would like to start this piece with the quote “Loneliness allows your soul room to grow”-by Janet fitch. Loneliness is a feeling of being alone or feeling sad about it. So, when we're lonely, we sit and listen to sad music. During this period, we may feel distant from others and rejected, which implies that we believe that whatever the other person is telling us is working against us. When I'm lonely, I'm continuously exhausted, it's difficult for me to complete any job, and I'm so distracted that I can't concentrate on anything. When I'm lonely, I tend to overeat and acquire a lot of weight. So these are the things that happen to me.

  • The shift in the Indian film industry

    When someone thinks of a movie from India, the first thing that pops into the mind is a dance number. While that’s mostly unique to the Indian Films, not many know that even many Hollywood movies used to feature songs until the early 20th Century, albeit in a different way. In fact, that is the time when Bollywood, the clichéd name that represents the entire Indian film industry had its origins. To the unknown, the name Bollywood was inspired by Hollywood with B representing the city of Bombay where its roots were formed. India has many different languages, Hindi being the most spoken one. As Bollywood primarily produces Hindi-based films, this very reason also laid the foundation for the inception of regional cinema in different languages. Among all, there are 4 film industries that gain the maximum traction other than Bollywood. They are Kollywood based on the Tamil Language, Tollywood based on the Telugu language, Mollywood based on the Malayalam language and Sandalwood based on the Kannada language. It’s interesting to know that all these 4 languages are primarily spoken in the Southern parts of India and hence the term regional cinema. Many refer the movies from any of these industries collectively as “South Indian Movies”.



    While it still is a fact that Bollywood is the biggest film industry in India, the content that the regional cinema has been producing for the past few years is on a different level altogether. Coming from Tollywood, the movies Bahubali part 1 and 2 have been the trendsetters, as the franchise became the highest-grossing one among all the film industries in India. The franchise was dubbed and released in all 5 languages simultaneously and became the instant favorite for all. The success also paved the way for many Pan-Indian films, completely erasing the language boundary. Blockbusters like KGF – 1, RRR, and KGF - 2 are the best examples. Meanwhile, Bollywood is not keeping up with the pace of the regional cinema not just in terms of the quality of the movies but also the penetrability. The change is real and hence the future of the Indian cinema is not just for Bollywood but for all the Indian film industries combined.

    Have you ever wondered if magic is real? If all the stories you heard growing up about things appearing out of thin air and your wishes being full-filled ? I personally believe that magic is totally real. It can be observed in the heart of engineering and science.

    Have you ever wondered if there exists criteria for beauty? We often listen to the phrase that beauty lies in the eyes of the holder but there are a few things like famous architecture or patterns which are claimed to be beautiful by more than 95% of the population. What could be common between a pattern of colors on a drawing and a building in Chicago downtown that is appealing to most the eyes? So there is a no. which roughly defines beauty. This no. is called the golden ratio.
