The Making of a Mascot


Well Guys !!

This Time I’ve brought not only something NEW, but also Something BIG for y’all. I alongwith my College NSIT Fine Arts Team, had made an Official Mascot for our College’s Technical Fest : Innovision 2011 few months ago. But this time we’ve decided to make something BIG such that everyone gets to witness how much BIG a MASCOT could be.

Well, Our Senior In-charge of Fine Arts Team, Sraisth Sunny was the guy behind all of this. He just came with a concept of creating a Big Mascot for displaying the visitors at our Fest. He draw a simple rough sketch of mascot giving us an idea and even asked us some changes. Me and my Year-mates, Arjun Paul and Kavyaraj Naik, have been given responsibility on its making.

After having a look on it, first of all we had to think not only the expected size of Mascot but also about the background colour and the type of Sheet to be used. I’ve seen the technique of Merging Small Sheets into a Large Sheet for making Large Backdrops, for our Cultural Fest : Moksha. That experience really helped us out. After predicting the Mascot Size, we merged 3 full-sized A2 Violet Cartridge Sheets, which crossed to a length around 6 Feet (almost my height :P).

Now it was time to begin with the sketch work. Personally speaking I had a hard time on making that DAMN sketch. As I never made such a Big Sketch on Sheet, It tool me approximately 6 Hours in sketching, alongwith Erasing the Errors and Molding them with Perfection. A Great thanks to my Junior, Gyan Ranjan ,who did a Fantastic job in suggesting me and even re-sketching my errors. He’s indeed a Phenomenal Sketcher.

Well, unfortunately y’all might be unable to see the exact sketching of our Mascot clearly. My Bad photography. 😛 Anyways after finalizing the sketch from Sraisth Sir, its time to apply some colour on our Work. We were still on doubt on the Color Combination of The Mascot as most of the Fine Arts Boys Team was good in Sketching but not in Coloring. 😛 Still we managed somehow and completed the Coloring Work in 2 Hours. And after 8 Hours of Complete Hard Work, the Mascot finally has been made. It’s truly looking like Iron Man, but an Indian Avatar. Take a Look. 😉

Even the Graffiti Board on which this Work has to be pasted, was covered with the same Violet Cartridge Sheet. The Mascot was Pasted on that 10 Foot Long Board. And Gyan did a fabulous job, in painting The Name of our Fest : Innovision (with slogans below) and The The Name of its Mascot : Innyoto (A Wacky Japanese name:P). An ultimately, We’ve got a Complete Poster.

I really thank to my Grand Fine Arts Team, who made this possible. Also a Great Thanks to those people, who saw this piece of Hard Work of ours and appreciated damn well. 🙂

.. True Beauty ..


This poetry is based on TRUE FACTS which i’m noticing these days for a long time . It has neither copied nor disrespecting content. Seriously, No Offence in any case. It’s totally written with Pure and Real Words of Creativity from my Heart and Please Read this one with yours’. 🙂

**********************************************************************************************

… True Beauty ….
A thing that never hides
from these precious eyes,
A thing that’s truly inside
and even, forever resides.
Sometimes it is unseen,
But it is not mean,
Sometimes it is bare,
But it lies within you,
as it is always there.

Still curious and amazed
with Today’s Pretty Women,
Seems like they won’t be
getting a True Satisfaction,
having a Strange Obsession,
with Big Lame Expections,
and still would be playing
with God’s Holy Creation.
Putting that Lip Gloss,
Fragrance of Candy Floss,
Painting all over the Body
with Powder and Tanning Lotion,
and even, covering
all those sexy things
with Plastic Implantation. 😛
All this madness
is raising now,
on every Race,
on every Culture,
on every Nation,
Where these bitches still
keep on running for Perfection.

But you can’t blame
all of them every timek
as even today’s guys
praise them like n00bs.
All they dream about
their fantasies every time
Riding with a Blonde having
Pamela Anderson’s B**bs,
Kissing a Brunette having
Angelina Jolie’s Lips,
Dancing with a Latina having
Kim Kardashian’s Hips,
This horny creepy World
is getting more Lusty,
People keep on
Stalking like Perverts,
and even,
Praising like Nerds,
Their Mind Will be
getting more Dirty.
They won’t ever
get a LIFE like this,
Until they Wake up
from the fantasy,
And come back
to REALITY.

Enough of this
Lusty Pollution,
Beauty has a
Naturally Pure Definition,
It can’t be covered
with any Makeup,
as it means True Love.
It even can’t
be Baked up,
as it the Flight
of a Dove,
With no
defects and flaws,
Nobody in the world
seems to be Ugly,
Just Keep your mind
DAMN Clean enough,
Never make it Dirty,
Just be proud of being
whatever you’re,
And how do you look,
Never Feel so guilty,
You’ll get on you own,
The Pure meaning of
.. The True Beauty ..

The 27 Club


Amy Winehouse performing in Berlin in 2007
Amy Winehouse – Image via Wikipedia

Another Demise of a Brit Talent – Amy Winehouse, died Today at the age of 27. Though she became Controversial in Paparazzi, but she was DAMN talented singer. Her powerful deep contralto vocals reminds that ole school Real Jazz Music. As a matter of fact, I could say proudly, unquestionably, undoubtedly and 100% Surely that She was One of the Best Female Singers ever heard of all Time.

Tragically but Magically, She eventually joins the famous “27 Club”. The 27 Club, also occasionally known as the Forever 27 ClubClub 27 or the Curse of 27, is the title for an epitomic group of influential musicians who all died at the age of 27. They are generally considered to have led a “rock and roll” lifestyle.

The original “27 club” was Brian Jones, Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin and Jim Morrison, who died within 2 years of each other in 1969-1971. To these is usually added Kurt Cobain (1994). Many other notable people, some well-known, others less so, also died at the age of 27. I have omitted some other musicians and actors (who would otherwise dominate the list) to make a broader and (hopefully) more interesting list. The “biographies” are necessarily short and cannot go into the speculations and conspiracy theories that have arisen around some of the deaths. Plus, Their deaths during this ripe age are either known or shrouded in mystery.

Robert Johnson
Robert Johnson

Robert Leroy Johnson (8 May 1911 – 16 August 1938). American singer and guitarist.

Drank whiskey laced with strychnine at a country crossroads near Greenwood, Mississippi. The details are unknown, and there are a number of accounts and theories. Researcher Mack McCormick claims to have interviewed Johnson’s alleged poisoner in the 1970s, and obtained an implicit admission of guilt. When Johnson was offered an open bottle of whiskey, his friend and fellow blues legend Sonny Boy Williamson knocked it out of his hand, and told him that he should never drink from an open bottle. Johnson allegedly said, “Don’t ever knock a bottle out of my hand”. Soon after, he was offered another open bottle and accepted it. That bottle was laced with strychnine. Johnson is reported to have started to feel ill throughout the evening and had to be helped back to his room in the early morning hours. Over the next three days, his condition steadily worsened and witnesses reported that he died in a convulsive state of severe pain—symptoms which are consistent with strychnine poisoning. Strychnine was readily available at the time as it was a common pesticide and, although it is very bitter-tasting and extremely toxic, a small quantity dissolved in a harsh-tasting solution such as whiskey could possibly have gone unnoticed but still produced the symptoms and eventual death that Johnson experienced.

Brian Jones

Drowned in a swimming pool. The coroner’s report stated “death by misadventure.” He was a Rolling Stones founder and guitarist/multi-instrumentalist…His age was 27 years & 125 days old and he died on July 3, 1969.

Brian Jones was the founder of a little known band named The Rolling Stones. While on the phone to secure a gig with a venue owner, Brian came up with the name “Rollin(g) Stones” by reading it off an album that was laying around. Their music consisted mostly of R&B covers and it wasn’t until Andrew Loog Oldham joined that they began shifting their focus to newer, more original material. This transition reduced Jones’ role in the band which was further accelerated with his drug habit and alcohol abuse. He became alienated from The Rolling Stones and eventually, he was no longer a member of the band he helped form. One month later, he was found face down in his swimming pool.

Jimi Hendrix

Autopsy showed he asphyxiated on vomit after combining sleeping pills with wine. He was a Pioneering electric guitarist, singer and songwriter for The Jimi Hendrix Experience and Band of Gypsys. His age was 27 years & 295 days old and he died on September 18, 1970.

There was nothing about Jimi Hendrix that didn’t stick out; from his flamboyant outfits, to his left-handed guitar, or his use of amp overdrive. After being turned down by The Rolling Stones, Jimi was introduced to Chas Chandler via Keith Richard’s girlfriend. They went on to form The Jimi Hendrix Experience a rock band that would revolutionize the genre forever. In 1969, he headlined the biggest music festival of all time, Woodstock. One year later, Jimi Hendrix was found dead after overdosing on pills and drowning in his own vomit (asphyxiation).

Janis Joplin

She died of a probable heroin overdose..She was a lead vocalist and songwriter for Big Brother and the Holding Company, The Kozmic Blues Band and Full Tilt Boogie Band. Her age was 27 years & 258 days old and she died on October 4, 1970.

Janis’ big break came in 1966 when she became the lead vocalist of the psychedelic hippie rock band, Big Brother and The Holding Company. She was renowned for her strong powerful vocals during a male-dominated rock era. Janis Joplin performed at Woodstock after having several shots of heroin and being highly inebriated. In 1970, she flew to Brazil where she cleaned up her act and remained sober for a while. She would later return to the US where her drug habits would resurface and ultimately, get the better of her as she died from an apparent heroin overdose in October 1970.

Jim Morrison

His cause of death listed as “heart failure”; however, no autopsy was ever performed. He was the lead singer, songwriter and video director for The Doors.. His age was 27 years & 207 days old and he died on July 3, 1971.

Jim Morrison was a poet, a writer, a filmmaker, and of course, the lead singer for the rock band, The Doors. Controversy surrounded The Doos when they were asked to perform on the Ed Sullivan show. Fearing that the lyric “Girl We Couldn’t Get Much Higher” was too risqué for television, Ed Sullivan requested that the band modify the sentence to be more TV friendly to which they agreed. When they played, Jim proceeded with original wording which infuriated Ed Sullivan. The Doors had great success in the late 60s but Jim Morrison started to get out of control. He was constantly drugged or drunk and would oftentimes show up late for live performances. In 1971, he moved to Paris and a few months later, Jim Morrison was found dead in his apartment. The circumstances surrounding his death are still unclear as an autopsy was never performed.

Kurt Cobain

He was the founding member, lead singer, guitarist and songwriter for Nirvana. His age was 27 years & 44 days old and he committed suicide on April 5, 1994.

In an era where rock music was all about long hair and leather jackets, Kurt Cobain sported short hair and wore flannel clothing. Nirvana became an overnight success when they took Michael Jackson off the number one slot in the Billboard music charts with their smash hit, Smells Like Teen Spirit. Grunge music would go on to flood the radio airwaves throughout the early nineties. In 1992, Cobain wed the equally unorthodox Courtney Love with whom they had daughter Frances Bean Cobain. In 1993, Nirvana, known for their grungy loud music, were approached by MTV and asked to perform a quieter, more intimate acoustic set. Kurt Cobain’s emotional performance in Where Did You Sleep Last Night still sends chills down our spines.

Amy Winehouse

Her cause of death has yet to be determined. She was a multiple award-winning English singer-songwriter.. She was 27 years & 312 days old and she died on July 23, 2011.

Ironically, Amy Winehouse owed much of her popularity to her song Rehab which contained the lyric “They tried to make me go to rehab but I said ‘no, no, no.’” After struggling with drug addiction, Amy Winehouse finally went against those same words and checked into rehab in 2011. After a short stay, the singer checked herself out of rehab and began a new European tour. She was booed off stage after showing up at her first gig intoxicated and unable to remember the lyrics to her famous songs. Her tour was cancelled following the incident to give her more time to recover. She was found dead in her London home a few weeks later.

Apart from the above mentioned famous musicians, there are some other famous personalities from various fields who died on the same age. However, they are not counted among The Club 27. 

Lea De Mae

6648D73Dc378Ccd29E3D626A

Andrea Absolonová (aka Lea De Mae and other pseudonyms) (26 December 1976 – 9 December 2004). Czech athlete, model and pornographic actress.

Died from glioblastoma, an aggressive form of brain cancer. Absolonová was a member of the Czech diving team and injured her spine in an accident while training for the 1996 Olympics. She partially recovered and qualified for the 2000 Olympics, but persistent problems forced her to retire. She was later persuaded by a photographer to pose nude and eventually to participate in the adult film industry. She appeared in over 80 adult films. She was diagnosed with glioblastoma in July 2004. During her battle for life, fans from around the world and fellow porn actors supported a medical fund that had been set up for her in Prague, but she died 17 days short of her 28th birthday.

  Rupert Brooke

Brooke Lg

Rupert Chawner Brooke (3 August 1887 – 23 April 1915). English poet, known for his idealistic war sonnets written during the First World War.

Died of sepsis from an infected mosquito bite on a British navy ship off Lemnos in the Aegean Sea, en route to Gallipoli, Turkey. As the expeditionary force had orders to depart immediately, he was buried the same night on Skyros. His most famous line of poetry, perhaps fittingly, is: “If I should die, think only this of me: / That there’s some corner of a foreign field / That is for ever England.” (Australian and New Zealand readers will understand the significance of the date and his destination.)

Jean-Michael Basquiat

Basquiat Home

Jean-Michel Basquiat (22 December 1960 – 12 August 1988). American artist.

Died of mixed-drug toxicity (he had been combining cocaine and heroin, known as “speedballing”) in his Manhattan loft/studio. In 1982, Basquiat became friends with pop artist Andy Warhol and the two made a number of collaborative works. They also painted together, influencing each others’ work. By 1984, many of Basquiat’s friends were concerned about his excessive drug use and increasingly erratic behavior, including signs of paranoia. Warhol died in 1987 and Basquiat the following year. (In the 1996 film Basquiat, Warhol was played by David Bowie (see no 15).)

Pat Tillman

Pat Tillman Lg

Patrick Daniel Tillman (6 November 1976 – 22 April 2004). American football player and soldier.

Killed by “friendly fire” in Afghanistan. In May 2002 Tillman turned down a contract offer of $3.6 million over three years from his team and enlisted in the US Army. He served in Iraq and Afghanistan, despite holding views critical of the Iraq war. On 22 April 2004 he was killed, along with an Afghan militiaman, in a “friendly fire” incident while on patrol. The specific details of his death and its aftermath are currently being investigated by the US Congress. The Army initially claimed that Tillman and his unit were attacked in an apparent ambush. After a lengthy investigation, the US Department of Defense concluded that the deaths were due to friendly fire aggravated by the intensity of the firefight. A more thorough investigation concluded that no hostile forces were involved in the firefight and that two allied groups fired on each other in confusion after a nearby explosive device was detonated. Claims, counter-claims, accusations (including that he was deliberately targeted (ie murdered)) and investigations continue.

30 Days of Truth

*****************************************************************************************

We all have encountered many people of various classes and castes in our Life. But there is an independent category of few people in your life who are always there for a back. They are who to whom you’re bit dependent with, inspite of being self-dependent. These are some people in your life who would always praise and sometimes criticize you for good. And even moving along with them you forget about the current world and eventually, making your life worth living. I’ve encountered many persons of all ages, so far in my life. But only few of them would stand for you. Forever.

 

Well, It all begins with since I was a Kid. I was kinda notorious in my school days. I used to do a lot of pranks with my school friends and teachers. Due to my deeds, Teachers scolded me, punished me and even slapped me. But still some of them treated me like a good lad and hardly got punished from them. I guess they were totally responsible in my Foundation as they brought the hell out of my Talent from me and even encouraged me. I remember those Parents Teacher Meeting (P.T.M) days where all Teachers always complain my Parents for being naughty and talkative in class, even though I was among the Toppers. But only few Teachers used to highlight more into my Dedication in Academics and my interests in Extra-Curricular Activities, overshadowing all my notoriousness in class, which obviously made my Parents proud. I guess they know better how to handle kids. Moreover, though my Dad was very strict, but he even becomes casual and cool for a while. He never forgot every single P.T.M of our school as he always inspected from me its date and time. But inspite of getting such shitty remarks about me, he used to chill during every P.T.M and never scolded me. But like a parent, he always tried to understand me and also praised my Talents as well. And therefore, I hardly got punishment from him. Lucky me ! 😛

 

Even friends are to be considered among those who made your life worth living enough. I didn’t mean by a long list of Facebook friends anyway. 😛 There are some person (very few in number though) hanging around you with them, I guess we always have the most possible FUN and good time for a while and get rid from all those tensions and boredom. These are the Most Effective Tranquilizers of your Fast Life. Of course, you’re Calm and Tension Free, hanging around with them. XD .. Not only Stress-Busters, they are also good Counselors as well. You could share something with them about you, your passion, your likes n’ dislikes and even your grief. I’ve never counted how many friends do I really have in my Life. The things which I sense from my friends – Love, Understanding, Care, Respect, Trust, Kindness, Helpful, Humanity, are uncountable. Making Friends is easy, but keeping your Friendship forever – Well that’s something difficult task but not that impossible.

 

And above all, It’s my Elder Sister. She is the one who. Her love and sometimes anger, truly shows the care for me. I won’t brag too much about her here. But ya !! I would like to add that I’m very very very DAMN proud to have such a nice Sister. She’s half-parent and half- friend for me. Unquestionably and Undoubtedly She’s sweet, caring, cute, adorable, bit arrogant sometimes :P, but still she’s lovable. That’s what True Blood Relations you see.

.

With a good note, I would conclude that everybody has atleast someone who would be caring for you and making your hard-knocking life worth living like heaven. It’s totally BULLSHIT that people brag the shit in Social-Networking Sites that they don’t have anyone who has made their life worth living. I’ve seen some Popular Emo phrases of being lonely, broken, atheist and sadistic every time, they might be cool but are truly lame. I guess it’s our shitty lame attitude that live with such lines and think the World is Cruel as always. But Guess what !! It ain’t cruel enough. God has sent someone like you, who would understand and be with you for a very long time. It’s just that you’ve to discover that tiny prick small leaf from the infinite grassland on your own. Even I’m bit loner and self-dependent, but still have some good people at back as I know these people know what you are and would try to make you what you wanted more.

 

So Get your lazy ass for a while from Social Network. Even I’ve over 300+ friends in Facebook. But still have couple of Good people around me, giving me a better reason to life. Infact, I’ve made myself to make others’ life DAMN living enough. Feel Hope yourself to be that Great as well.

 

Well I’ve a Life worth living. What about yours’ huh ??
