The following Post is for accomplishing Creative Challenge called 30 Days of Truth, given by Kellie Elmore. It is a unique exercise in self exploration and learning to be honest with yourself… and that ultimately leads to happiness.
Everybody has certain ambitions and desires to become what they want. They keep on working hard for making their wish true. Even I have certain list of things that I want to be and hopefully I would become lately.
Here they are :-
1. Computer Programmer
Primarily and also on the basis of my major field of interest. I like to Coding a lot in certain Programming Languages (but most frequently in C/C++, as it reminds my ole school days). Since I’ve laid interest on this field, I just get with it day and night, focusing on certain concepts, applying some algorithms and solving’em with some presence of mind. It truly requires some Coding Skills and an approaching view to solve any kind of problem. It even becomes mind-boggling and damn irritating when get stuck in the middle with any problem, trying to figure out the bug (or error), for hours, days or even Weeks. But still, I like this. 😉
Ya indeed, I would like to go on further, learn certain new languages, new algorithms and even new compliers, to learn something NEW and getting updated with latest technology in the market. I am on my way. Moreover, It would be for my living in future.
I was truly passionate about Drawing before entering into Programming, since childhood. Drawn a lot of art creations not only these days, but also in the past School days. I really love sketching a lot and like to draw sketches of posters, cartoons and many still objects nearby. But not so good in Painting, as I’ve lost those painting skills when I left my paint brush during my High School Days. But still, I would really like to lay emphasis on that piece of work as well. Moreover, I’m very glad to some of my college seniors and some of blog-mates who are indeed The Masters in Fine Arts, and from whom you’ll get to learn something NEW every time.
Well, Y’all have even seen all my creations so far in my blog and appreciated many of them as well. It would be increasing more and more in future with some expertise and perfection. Hopefully, I would become like Professional Artists in future.
3. Computer Animator and Gaming
Well though it’s a mixture of the above two, but still describing it on another category. It may be more biased to Programming, but an Artistic Vision is also required whenever you’re a creating some character. I’ve just made a simple Snake Game in C/C++ Language back in December last year. Though it was already made by many brilliant programmers across the World, even in more better way and also, C/C++ Games are now outdated these days. But my purpose of making this Game was to utilize all the coding skills and artistic approach learnt so far. I would surely like to improve upon by learning some New Programming Languages like – JAVA, C#, .NET, PHP and also some Game Source Engines like Allegro and OpenGL.
Since I’m exploring and updating myself in both – Programming and Arts, I am even going along with Computer Animation and Gaming as well.
4. Mimicry Artist and Radio Jockey
Just for FUN though , but seems like It has now become something that I would like to do more and more. Mimicry / Voice Impersonating over 50 artists and certain 100 Cartoon characters. I’ve performed that thing quite lot, in front of my friends, class-mates and even a crowd of around 1000 during my College Freshers Party. From limited people to a Mob, This n00b has raised HELL in the town. 😛
But I’m not a regular performer, as obviously It not only would affect my voice, but also there won’t be something NEW to show to the people, and eventually, making my act completely BORING. So Therefore, I just take break for a while, writing some new scripts to entertain people. That’s my way, To Be Happy and Making Others Happy. 😉
Well after recognizing my talent very well, some good friends of mine recommended to try for Radio Jockey (RJ) as profession. Even I’ve tried my level best to become a RJ in my College Radio Channel – Radio NSIT, but failed to get selection. No Regrets at all. But ya !! I would like to be a RJ in some other Radio Station when I really push myself forward more in this talent and acquire more confidence to be good enough for a RJ.
It used to be my Time-Pass Hobby in earlier days. After clicking many pictures either with Mobile Camera, or Digital Camera, of whatever I see nearby, I’ve discovered that I’m doing that free-time work quite well. Even some people liked my pictures and also appreciated the fact that I’m Good in Photography. So whenever I get time for a while, I just click some nice pictures of my surroundings many time until I am satisfied.
But I know, not only use of Professional Photography Cameras, but also a Photogenic Vision is also required to become an Expert in this particular field. Hopefully, this piece of Time-Pass Hobby might become a Big-Time Profession in future. You just never know. 😉
Basically, I like to express my feelings carved in some nice words. Like Arts, even Poetry is my childhood passion. I used to pen down my thoughts in a poem with some rhymes as well. Now, Even trying to use some phrases, metaphors and even some other forms of Poetries like – Haikus (which I’ve done all this February 8)), would make my poetry even more expressive and graceful.
After blogging for around 9 months, I’ve got to see many Professional Poet Bloggers some, from whom you’ll get to learn more and more. They eventually become yourMentorin this field as their expertise and experience means a lot to us.
There are more brilliant people in my above field of interests mentioned so far. I’m glad to such people in my Life. Some of them are very helpful, who would let others’ to and promote their particular field of interest. While some of them are Egoistic, who won’t help anyone to grow as they like to be sole surviving master of their field and probably would take out those who don’t match with their so-called level. But somehow, you get to learn something them.
However, above from all those desires which I’ve discussed so far. Before I become a Computer Programmer, an Artist, a Computer Animator, a RJ , I would like to be a Good Human at First. Like a Good Brother, who would try to protect his fellow beings from problems. Like a Good Friend, who would retain his friendship forever. Like a Human Being, who would promote. For being a good human, you ought to be Kind, Matured, Responsible, Adamant and Peaceful.
But ya, after living in and experiencing from The Real World, you oughta be Smart and bit Diplomatic as well. 😉 8)
Life is full of unpredictable obstacles. I dunno and won’t get to know earlier of what I would become either one or many of them, in future. I’m just focusing on my dedication towards my desired interests and thinking of the Current, not much about the Future. And about my future and career, Life would notify me that sooner. Fingers Crossed !!! 😉 😀
Well apart from Photography, Painting and Poetry, I’m also a fond of Mimicry or Voice impersonation. This is also one of my fine Talents, which I posses. I used to do this piece of Work during my Free Times. It was my way of entertaining myself and others as well, if they don’t get bored with it. I can do Mimicry of various Cartoons Characters, some of my Friends, my Teachers and even famous personalities from Bollywood like – Om Prakash, Ashok Kumar, Shatrughan Sinha, Shakti Kapoor, Sanjeev Kumar, Utpal Dutt, Mahmood, Amjad Khan, Dharamendra, Amitabh Bachchan, Ajit, Dilip Kumar, Feroz Khan, Nana Patekar, Pran, Amrish Puri, Gulshan Grover, Sunny Deol, Sunil Shetty, Sanjay Dutt and also very famous WWE Superstar – Stone Cold Steve Austin. Hmm.. Around 100+ different sounds I could produce from my mouth. Enough show-offs now. 😛
Still, I expect from people to appreciate my Talent, which I’ve hardly got from anybody. That’s why I hardly go for Mimicry. I did it last time on my Freshers Party Competition, where I didn’t give my Best Shot as I was getting nervous from the mad crowd and even forgot 75% of my scripts. However, many of my classmates know about my talent already as I’ve rehearsed in class a day ago. But still I wanted that I should do it and get the appreciation again, but later when I’ll get another chance to prove myself. Well, guess what? I’ve got a chance that month.
Well, we all were on a Mass Bunk and sitting with boredom outside at the Nesci Grounds. One of my classmates said to me, “Yaar Ashish!! Let’s have your Mimicry once again. What you say Guys?”. All of a sudden it happened that I’ve got shocked whether they are kidding by teasing me or they really wanted to see this act. Morever, I was not having any scripts to have something new and again the Nervousness prevailed though I knew the fact that some of them have already seen this piece of mine and even they know how good am I in it. Still, they demanded and allowed me to take some time for that. All ole ITians and even those new faces from DCE were excited to see that SHIT once again after a very long time. Well, without disappointing them I’ve started my Mimicry.
1st of all, I started with Pritviraj Kapoor (Akbar), fusing with the signature poses made by WWE Superstars Hulk Hogan, John Cena, D-Generation X and Stone Cold, in order to make it bit funny. Watching this unique act, everybody laughed on it which eventually boosted my confidence and I performed further. Then, also acted as other Bollywood Actors with famous dialogues in their style. And finally, the one of The Toughest Mimicry yet to be done, none other than Stone Cold Steve Austin. I even made my mates to participate here by saying, “ WHAT ? ”, whenever I take a pause in between my Lines, to make it real like Stone Cold does with the audience. I said and enacted on his very famous dialogue which he said during Royal Rumble 2002. At the end of my act we all shouted together, his famous catchphrase, “And that’s the BOTTOMLINE, Cause STONE COLD said so !! ”. And then, I took two Pet Bottles and drank in similar way he used to drink Beer. After drinking too much, I threw it upwards, which fell downwards and crashed on Nitin’s head. 😛
Meanwhile, the girls of our class were sitting in a group, bit apart from us. They might have not got an idea what actually I was doing in the middle of my friends. They even might have thought that What the HELL on earth this douchebag was doing. 😛
After the conclusion of my act, I’ve got lots of appreciations from my mates and friends. Few gave me some nice compliments to work more upon for further enhancing my skills and never give up such an amazing talent. I felt really good that they liked my act. I was really satisfied from myself I did my best. In a nutshell, I’ve got chance and I’d nailed it. Hopefully, I would be able to bring something new next time, if I get the chance to “Break the Ice” once again.
For those, who don’t know what Mimicry is all about. Take a look on the following Video of Mimicry of various Bollywood Actors. Y’all get to know more than enough about it. 😉
PS:- Don’t Mind with the scripts. 😛
