The Power of Modern Youth

Youth Is Directionless But Not Irresponsible..” by ”‘s Blog

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

Usually I don’t write down personal incidents on my blog but series of confrontations with a few questioning minds made me to express my views through an incident that happened with me two days back. On friday morning, me and my classmates were eagerly waiting for our advertising class which is taken by a very experienced and charismatic person. For his introduction, I would just like to mention that he headed Public Relation Society of India (Delhi Chapter) and this is just a feather in his cap.

He started off the class with enormous energy as he usually does discussing the ‘publics in public relation’.While explaining further he cited the example of ‘Anna Hazare Movement’ and his first statement was-“This movement is going to die off, nothing will happen.” One or two of my friends, (who volunteered  with me at Jantar Mantar while Anna was on fast) tried to convince him that revolution starts from somewhere but their mincing words failed to do so. He put his point more strongly by making one of the volunteers to stand and asked, “What have you done for the movement since you have come back from Jantar Mantar? Did you write a single letter to editor or even a blogpost? ” The expected answer came from the boy-No!

The sir went on- “You people just create euphoria, if you want to do something start from your own home.It was just a 5 days fest and now everything is gone.” I was listening to all this and ultimately can not resist myself from raising my hand while saying, “sir, I want to say something.” He allowed me to speak and I started, ” Sir, I am connected to this movement from past six months when it started in November last year. Since then, I have written ten letters to editor those have been published in Hindustan Times. I have made the people aware of ‘JanLokpal Bill’ through a special facebook account and Google buzz.I attended the India Against Corruption rally on 30th of January at Ram Lila Maidan.I have been writing blogposts twice a month adressing such issues and I don’t think I have done anything special because I am not the only one. ” Suddenly, he stopped me and smilingly uttered, “In the language of advertising, your product has been sold. Lady you will not let this movement die and I am complimenting you.” Normally, he never gets convinced so early still I preferred to halt myself.

After few minutes, again he touched the wrong strings. ” A simple bill can not curb corruption.Nothing will happen because corruption is so deeply rooted in this country. One or two people can’t bring the change”.You can call it my stubbornness, but I raised my hand again. This time he said, “lady you can put your point but I won’t say a word.” Still I asked him, “Will you agree sir, inspiration can be positive or negative?, He moved his head in affirmation and I continued, “When last time I went for IAC, only one person followed me, but this time at Jantar Mantar, four of my classmates came along with me.Something positive inspired me to volunteer there on my birthday rather than partying with friends. But the way you are treating this issue, next time I won’t find a single person from this class to accompany me because of negative insipration. My only question is why to be so cynical?”. He didn’t say much but just smiled and said, “I am not spreading negativity, I am just motivating you people.”

Though I expressed my viewpoint but frankly speaking, I was a bit scared because I knew that my teacher is going to complain about me to my Director and I will face a tough time.In that 3 hour class, we get a break of 10 mins after one and half hour is over.In the break, he called me up and asked my name.He also asked me about my career plans and gave me some nice suggestions regarding the same.He offered me his help in case I need it in future. If I am not wrong, he was convinced!

The only point to explain the whole incident is to make the people realize that Youth can be directionless,lacks inspiration, contentious and sometimes rude but is not irresponsible. Once it gets a direction, a goal, a particular way, youth is the best asset any country can have to curb any social menace. So, please don’t distrust them rather than provide them a direction, a platform where they can voice their aspirations. I know a 18year old, modern young boy teaching small kids at a village on his birthday and filing more than 120 RTI petitions. I have seen a 19year old actively working with a NGO for the betterment of environment.And this list is endless. How can I be cynical? Let us fail, let us struggle.Even if we return with nothing we have the courage to start again. Remember, with experience you never start with ‘0’, you always start with ‘1’.If you can’t do anything for us, atleast don’t be cynical. As I always say, If you can’t talk positive, atleast be neutral rather than spreading negativity. You never know, who gets inspired from you.

Facebook 2011 Statistics


Well Guys, I don’t need to explain it briefly since the following figures would tell the whole story. 😛

Finally, The Cobra has been Unleashed


Well Guys !!! Y’all know what I’m talking about.

I’m neither talking about just a Venomous Snake,

A Venomous Cobra

nor about an Evil Mighty Commander of GI-Joe Series,

The Cobra Commander

and not even a Creepy Wrestling Maneuver of a WWE Superstar, Santino Marella  😛

Santino Marella's Cobra

It’s even BIGGER and something that brought some Real Nu Metal alive in this DAMN current era of Electro-shitty Music. Well, It’s Hot-Shot Bonanza to my Dear Limp Bizkit Fans !! 8)

The discussions, The predictions and even Prolonged Eager Waiting are over now. With all your patience and support so far, ” Limp Bizkit “ has finally showed up some Nu Metal shit for their fans. They recently released their sixth studio album Gold Cobra on June 24 in Germany, June 27 in the United Kingdom and June 28 in the rest of the world in 2011 by Interscope Records.

This album is totally Nu Metal Genre (typical Limp Bizkit Genre) and even features the same ole Band Lineup including the return of their Rhythm guitarist (and, my Rock Idol) Wes Borland after 5 years. Moreover, It features a New CD Cover 😉 … Kinda Creepy Ugly Stuff, y’all gonna say after watching this. 😛 Yeah !! The Previous Original one was fucking way better.

Gold Cobra - Current CD CoverGold Cobra - Current CD Cover

Anyways, the Simple Version of Gold Cobra album contains 13 Songs. All lyrics were written by their frontman Fred Durst, all music composed by Fred Durst, DJ Lethal, Wes Borland, John Otto and Sam Rivers, except “Back Porch” by Fred Durst and Boney B.eats & “Combat Jazz” by Mathematics. They have even featured some of the rare songs of this Album on its Special Deluxe Version.

They’ve just launched their latest song ” Gold Cobra “ of this album, at their Official Website on June 22 and even in YouTube today. Take a look on this sensational Rocking Video. \m/ XD

Well, the songs of this album are good. Something y’all gonna experience some Real Nu Metal they usually play. It seemed as if they’ve maintained their legacy from their very first studio album, Three Dollar Bill Y’all, released in 1997. It’s a typical Limp Bizkit album, dedicated to True Limp Bizkit Fans. Unfortunately, It’s not to a level that they used to play those days. It’s unlike Linkin Park’s current Electro-shit music where the Nu Metal Genre has lost, fucked n’ died somewhere. 😛 Even some other critics has expressed their views like this way. I’ve just referred a site called ” Heavy Blog is Heavy.com “, a site which is dedicated to all Heavy Metal Fans and where you could get reviews & updates on various Metal Bands. Well, they’ve written an appropriate and indeed true critical review on Gold Cobra and rated it 2/5, as mentioned in their Blog Post.

In a nutshell, I would say it feels DAMN great to see Limp Bizkit, the band I grew up with, is back on track since the departure of Wes Borland and the failure of their album, The Unquestionable Truth (Part -1). But being honest, Gold Cobra is not as outstanding as we’ve witnessed their Platinum Record Albums like – Three Dollar Bill Y’all, Significantly Other, Chocolate Starfish and Hot Dog Flavored Water etc. But if you compared with today’s songs with music sounding unrealistic, you’ll get something real shit from the real players of Nu Metal.

I’ve just downloaded the whole album via Torrent. You can Download “Gold Cobra” from here.

Plus with a Good Note, It’s a \m/ Total Kickass \m/ Album. Just like this DAMN Sexy and Freaking HOT Chick is trying to explain so in the Gold Cobra Music Video. 😛

Gold Cobra = \m/ Kickass \m/

Gold Cobra = \m/ Kickass \m/

See this shit on their Title Song “Gold Cobra” on Youtube by pausing the Video exactly at 4:03.

Enjoy !! 8) 😛


“Mudra” – Sketching and Crayon-Coloring


Hello Guys !!

Well, you’ve seen the Posters on my earlier art posts, which I’ve made for my College Fest Event (organised by me and my friends), called  ” The Music Quiz”. at ” Moksha 2011 : Elixir Of Euphoria “8)

Well on that event, we’ve got a huge attendance of over 75 Teams, which means we have about 150-200 students participating for our very interesting event. They not only got fascinated by our Posters. Obviously, It probably was the ideas and concepts of our Event which must have to lure the people and making them to attend our Event. The participation numbers might be less relatively lesser than other Events. But for me and my Team, it was a Huge success and we’ve got that we’ve unexpected.

Anyways, coming back to the point. It’s time to display my artwork.

Not only for my event, I’ve made certain posters of other events organised by dear friends. They rang me up and asked me to make a poster related to Indian Dance Forms as they were organizing a Mega Event of our Fest called  ” Mudra : The Choreography Competition “, which is basically a Indian Dance Competition.

Getting started with it, I’ve browsed through the Internet getting an idea of making particular Indian Dance Forms, which would be quite relevant for the event. So after searching for almost an hour, with some selection-rejection process, I’ve finally came with a picture that suits with the theme. And so, I’ve just started making it. Initially, I drew all those forms with Pencil and then colored the base with orange color. After done with the paint job, I’ve just used Black Markers and Sketch Pens for highlighting the shadow images of dancers.

And ultimately, you get your Job done like this. 😀

The main backdrop is done, only finishing is left. Well, this time I’ve applied some light strokes Crayons for making a background having a sun and full of clouds, making the backdrop color even visible. With some finishing and making the Event and Moksha Logo, we finally came with this.

Well, they’ve tanked me for helping them in making this. As a matter of fact, they’ve even got a nice attendance of participants as well as audience as well.

“The Music Girl” – Sketching and Crayon-Coloring


Sorry Guys, for the delay !!
Actually, I was quite busy in preparation for my Exams and even in Fine Arts Work for my College Fest ” MOKSHA: The Annual Cultural Festival of NSIT “, which is going to be held in few days. I’ll tell y’all about that more, but Later some day. 😛

Well, In the Meantime, I’ve even made a Poster for my College Fest Event (organised by me and my friends), which I now would like to display here.

The Event which we are probably going to organize in our College Fest is ” The Music Quiz”. 8)

Well obviously, I have to make a Poster related to Music stuff for our Event which must have to lure the people and attend our Event.

So Getting started with it, I’ve made a Pencil Sketching of a Girl with a Headphone on her head, depicting as she is Listening Music. After Sketching (with some rubbing and re-drawing), It’s time to apply some color. But this this time, I’ve used Wax Crayons for base with some Oil Pastel Colors for highlighting.

And ultimately, you get your Job done like this. 😀

Yaa !!! You’ve got it. It is almost looking like the same picture as it was in my Previous Gravatar Image. Well Actually, I made its sketch though it’s looking bit different from that I’ve made. 😛

Anyways, getting back to work. Since this is for our College Fest Event, I have to even mention the Event Name as well. For that, I’ve made a Graffiti, suiting the Sketch and even with the Theme.

After merging above two stuffs, it ultimately becomes  an One Complete Crayon Poster Art.

Hopefully, People would come for our Event after looking on this Poster and getting fascinated towards it,ultimately getting a huge attendance for our Event. 😛
