Get what you deserve, Race to Win. Is it always true?

by SuperUser 19. October 2016 11:18

I have a great question for you Have you got everything you deserver? , I am sure 90% people will say no. Most of us once in our lives must have not got what we deserved and the only thought that crosses our minds would be ‘so what! Leonardo have also not won the Oscar despite being a brilliant actor’. This statement was such a relief for all those unfortunate lot who work hard but never got recognized for it. Leonardo was an ideal for all these people, however, now people can’t relate them to him anymore, because he is among the proud winners of Oscar. A well-deserved victory for him. With four Oscar nominations to his name, which is no less an accomplishment and winning now the golden man, this journey for Leonardo has been a long wait for the laurel. There were several memes dedicated to him for his unsuccessfulness to bag an Oscar. He made an impact on the minds of people but failed every time to make an impression on the minds of the jury, which was a much talked about topic all over the world. His atypical and versatile performances in many more were winning the hearts but not Oscars for him. Finally after when he won this prestigious award there are people who think that the reason he won the award for ‘The Revenant’ is not because he performed outstandingly but because he was due for Oscars. His better performances were not awarded and a mediocre performance as in The Revenant bagged him that much awaited prize for this skills.

Somehow this adage appears so true ‘Awards are not always for the deserved’. The institution of awards and the people at jury fail to recognize the real talent so many times. Mostly, they are influenced by some wrong perceptions or their own opinions to hail a nominee as a winner. Leonardo is one such classic case of Oscar winners/losers, where in, the jury never acknowledged him for his out of the box lethal performances and they seem to get impressed by a mediocre performance which he had done, leading to a questionable state about the authenticity of such awards. Somehow the campaigning, PR etc. also play a deterrent role in someone’s win, it’s not just the quality of work that matters to the jury.

This year probably there was not much of a competition for Leonardo and he earned appreciation both critically and commercially making it big for himself from all directions. Oscars are awarded to veterans and established actors, as the history says people with an established fame get Oscars not the lesser known actors, in that view Leonardo is a name that is revered not only in Hollywood but across the globe. Leonardo would have won this award already for his film ‘What’s Eating Gilbert Grape’ when he was just 20 years old. This year Leonardo had been the only actor that fulfilled every awkward criterion to be an Oscar winner and finally this indefinable trophy got a place in his shelf. Fans are happy for him, however they kind of opinionate that this win could have come to him much before for this exceptional versatility as an actor in many more from his bandwagon. He turned indisputably inimitable plots into commercial successes but his worth got recognized through a movie in which he delivered a good performance which was far lesser than his other stalwart portrayals.

This year Leonardo did not leave any room for improvement while campaigning for The Reverent. Be it telling the world about the frozen cold of the shooting locations of The Reverent or be it telling them that they survived by eating the bison’s liver which made him sick. He made every impression telling people how much he strived to get into the character. He successfully made a mark! It became a proved notion that talent does not play a hundred percent role in one’s success, it is the advertising and branding of oneself that makes someone more acceptable by people. Masses react to aura , they go to watch their stars for substance , however they form an image behind their mind before they go for a movie or anything spectacular that captures their attention do play a substantial role in making a movie and it’s stars a hit.

awards awlays does not mean that you had great race!!

Schools System, Now and Then

by ExpertBlogger 4. September 2016 12:14

It has been very long since I left my school but still I remember each and every moment I spend in my school, now I am overseas with my family and my kids are going to in different school than what I went to. Few weeks back I attended my daughter’s first day school orientation and here is my experience.

When I reached to the orientation it was very organized, they have started the function with greeting and introduction which kept me stunted when they started to introduced that here is our kindergarten teachers, yes that what we all had and then there is speech therapist, then there is carrier consular then there is a full time nurse and doctor then there is nutriologist. There is sports teacher, there is an art teacher, there a music teacher then there is physical health teacher and list just goes on. This was elementary school yes from K to 5th grade but the amount of facilities they have it is out of the chart. When I compare this to my school, we just had a PT teacher and Drawing teacher apart from the regular subject teachers.  

When I look around with the today’s school system it just surprise me , yes in good way that now a day kids and so much to explore , so much to learn and they get right guidance, they get to choose what they want to do. I still remember that I use to do good painting while in the school but I have never been supported or promoted to do more of it instead I have been discourage that, is that you are going to do for rest of your life, even the sports was just for sake and I don’t remember I have played or got chance to play any games. The story might be different for different people but somewhat same around the school system in work. There is no place for art or sports, only studies and grades are the benchmark for the student’s ability to success in the life. How we are going to create artist or good sportsman if we are not focus on it. How are going to address he issue of kid which has been going in depression. How are going to keep their medical needs. School back in India need to answer these questions.

 

I don’t know the current situation in Indian school but if they have changed over the time then it is really commendable but if they are not which I think they have not then there should be someone who should be looking into it, we are building our next generation and they will be responsible for coming each and every generation, if you could able to pass the right message then they will pass whatever they have learned and I will be keep happening. We should take our time and think a bit that how we want our next generation to be.

What we need is a change!!

I wish life would have rewind button

by ExpertBlogger 12. August 2016 09:40

Have you thought about it?  Is this comes to your mind? Then how many time in your life you have thought like this. Believe me, you know what I am talking about, there is always situation in anybody’s life when they would have thought that I wish life could have rewind button or I wish I could go back in time and change things little bit.

As an individual every day you are going to tones of different situation , each one of these are one of its kind and always teach you something or more than you expect out of it, those can be good or bad , small or big but they happens and you have only certain time to think and make those this happen.

Just as example as a growing up kids I did not had a privileges life today’s kids when they are surrounded by eye popping gadget and just had lot of thing which keep them curious enough and busy in learning and then you think that  I wish I could rewind my life and be a kid at this time. Life goes on and on you come across some situation where you are not sure about your reaction and that moment the decision making parameter might be different according to surrounding happening at that time, but when time pass by and it adhered the negative effect on your future life then you keep thinking about the decision which  you took in past and you find out that if you could have taken other decision then thinks could have been different today , your life should have more straight forward , then you think I wish I could go back in time and just change that decision. 

But finally someone had said that “If you keep reading previous chapter then you cannot able to start new one”. Somehow that is true whatever happened in past in past and what is there in present which is in your hand, you can try to make this thing perfect. I can perfectly get that there are something which cannot be recreate or revisit even in the future because they are irreversible. You can leave those thinks and black dream of your life and just leave it.

I think the thought of rewinding life comes from our attitude and perspective towards our life, someone always like to do all thinks perfect they don’t want any anomalies, it should just happen as they have in vision it. They have some kind of anxiety and fear about going things in wrong direction. They could not focus on their life fully because of this anxiousness and that makes their life more complicated. It’s can be about relations can about carrier decision or any family decision, your fear and anxiousness ruined your present and future. These people away think about fast or future so there is less scope to think about present and focus on present, one should always think that what is important NOW not in past or not in future, if you can make your now better then future will come prefect.

Bottom line is just keep clam, believe that life does not have rewind button and you have to always open a page to read next chapter.

Entertainment Race in the box, who’s gonna win?

by ExpertBlogger 12. June 2016 12:11

You must have surprised with the title "Entertainment Race in the box, who’s gonna win?" what is the race in the box for entertainment , but if you have switch from one to other tv boxes then you must have got an idea that what is I am talking about.

Yes I am talking about the race of TV boxes by many companies out there, currently we have so many different kind of TV streaming box in market and it is just to complicate to choose for the normal non-technical user who has very limited knowledge about apps, resolution and connectivity option they provide and also the limitation of each box, which they realized after buying them. Each and every box has their own pros and cons but we are not going to talk about those there because you can easily go and check their spec side by side on net and find out difference if you get it, Here I am trying put the point is, why these TV boxes has limitation one over other when the technology is available for every company and they know about it. For an instance Roku, Apple Tv and Amazon fire sticks are head to head competition in this category.

Each one has their up’s and down some are good some are bad but every time they comes up new version and old version is just stalls, I can get that they don’t want to release everything at same time and stop their sell on that device instead they release it step by step and keep upgrading version also the software inside this. In my personal experience I had use both the box Roku and Apple Tv.

For just an example let consider Roku, the casting feature is really poor in that, I don’t have any idea that if Apple TV can make real progress in casting functionality then why cannot Roku go and work on casting feature and make their device good. On other hand Apple TV has good casting capabilities but when it comes to app they just way behind and has very limited apps and it just bound you and you start hating.

Sometime I feel that when these companies are working against each other they just have some kind of mutual agreement that they will have monopoly in certain feature so that they could survive in the market side by side, one simple thing is Remote , now why can they just come to an agreement and design some kind of remote which has simpler structure , I don’t want to limit the innovation and ability of devices but come on when it comes to kids and non-technical people who has very limited grasp over the remote and when you handle them apple tv remote they just hate it , why you want to replace the button with touch pad , I get it if someone want it that way they have an option , make to remotes one simple and one super complicated, this is my personal experience my 5 year daughter just struggle with apple tv remote and hate it whereas the remote on Roku was really good for handling , one more is thickness , I know apple is famous for their stick design but , when someone has their remote always sticking inside middle of couch or just goes below rug while dusting then you started thinking that why the hell they made this thing so small , every time I try to find it and it’s a job one of kind. 

I am not against the innovation they put in each product and comes up with unique and good ideas but when someone think about these just not only focus of tech oriented folk rather than consider from three year kids to 70 year old how they are going to use this.

On closing node I must say no body gonna win this race of box because each one has important one or another feature and it will always be a personal choice rather than what they offer.

By Whom, When & What to watch? Decide!!

by ExpertBlogger 18. May 2016 15:24

We have been always choosing what we want to watch or not, we always cared about what our kids are watching and when they are watching. The filtering of the content that can be considered as obnoxious and irrelevant for the set of audience who would see or watch it is called censorship. It is not just a term but a colossal phenomenon that is practiced worldwide in order to prevent the common man from those thought processes or views that have come from a person or a group of persons through their piece of work in most cases it is the work of art, that is reviewed thoroughly before bringing it to the audience. Censorship plays an important role in shaping the society with its screening of the improper content. The most pronounce area where censorship plays a dominant role is the media and the film industry and to some extent the literary works of artisans. In the democratic countries of the world like India, US and many others the freedom for speech or expression is the basic and most important right of every citizen, until any of their citizen tries to exercise this right in a way where it would hurt someone’s sentiments.

We live in a society that is majorly driven by certain norms and following them makes us responsible and unfollowing them makes us a rebel. A section of society who are artists, performers or writers have a certain viewpoint for something that goes around them and they express it through their work of art or creatively depict it but this could hurt many others living in the same society who would found it objectionable or questionable for their values. Censoring such content which otherwise belong to a particular person or a group is the duty of the censor board or committee in any country. To run the checks against the set principles that a particular society harbors to that creative work. Acting as a mediator between the creativity and the societal norms the censor board ensures that the relevant content is produced and the relevance of it is not lost in this process. For example it is the portrayal of violence on television or films that could lead to an increased rate of crime in a society, as it will influence the young minds to do the unprecedented. United States of America is the most liberal nation of the world and it exercises minimal censorship on it’s citizens and the press. Censorship body is meant to protect the sanctity of a society by reminding the people that the norms should be exercised in order to form an egalitarians society.

However the sole purpose of this type of set up to keep a guardian for protecting the society’s customs may sometimes violates the rights of the people who want to bring forth their creativity to the public and give them a different perspective. A governing body to keep an eye on the artists and press so that any inapt material should not reach the public may be a cruel way to hamper the creativity of media and press. It curbs their rights to freely give something to this world which otherwise the world is unaware of. The most controversial of all is politics which should be popularized or defamed with extreme care. Now a days the press practices no control to publish any content on TV or in newspapers, in order to practice the yellow journalism and as a result it creates useless heroes before the nation to gain viewership. The numbers they present are mostly inflated, the facts they put before are exaggerated and the people they glamourize are often shallow.

Censor board has the authority to stop this however it has become increasingly difficult for them to filter out inappropriate from the appropriate content. Another sensitive topic is religion all works that are done based on propagating a particular faith like writing a book, making a movie or a documentary or painting a canvas requires a very careful restraint on the artist or the author in order to make sure that the final piece of art is not disruptive in nature and does not create any upheaval from any community. Censor board has a vital role to play in order to make and maintain a balance of paradigms amongst different sections of people with varied tastes and psyche.
