“Thank you - The best acknowledgment”

 

Sometimes, in life, we forget the most important phrase which can spread joy, happiness and a feeling of gratitude, and that phrase is “thank you”. But the phrase these days is used only as a formality. The thought of being thankless these days, kept me haunting. It continued disturbing me; then, I decided to take a collective opinion. The journey started, with a simple question, ‘Who did you thank today?’. The first person that I asked the question to..

Life of a college freshman is both exciting and nerve-racking for students like me, who are straight out of school. It’s a complete change in our lives. We feel like we are in an unknown land; we are neither treated as children nor as adults. The daunting thought that runs through the minds of a freshman is what kind of friends we will find? And, whether or not we will fit in? Also we wonder about the nature of our teachers..

Brian Herbert, a famous American author had rightly said “the capacity to learn is a gift, the ability to learn is a skill; and the willingness to learn is a choice”. This was true for the MA students of Journalism and Mass Communication. As we were fortunate enough to learn and teach on February 27, 2018 at Byalahalli, Kolar district, Karnataka.

Five years! It’s a long time to spend anywhere – and it most certainly is a long time to spend in a college. But that’s exactly what I did. And, as I stare at the finish line of what has been an unbelievable journey as a Jayantian, I can safely say, that I have no regrets.

String of Lemon, Charcoal and Chillies: What’s the big deal?

 

For a shopper, the string of lemon, charcoal and chillies, hanging in front of the shops may not make any sense. But, for a shopkeeper who runs the business, that string and what it does is a big deal.

Difference between Good cinema and an Empty plot

 

We all have witnessed at least one particular semester during our college days where seminars and conferences may seem way too informative sometimes. Call it weird, or maybe it’s the change of the atmosphere, or is it the tone of delivery? Seminars and lectures about thought provoking topics have always been my genre.

Life of Millennials

 

The term Millennial is used to refer to people who are born from 1980s to late 2000. They are often characterized by their proximity to technology, communication and media. In simple terms, their life is imbibed in technology and purely dependent on it. They can also be regarded as a generation with the highest risk of suicide, depression, and issues related to self-esteem. Ever wondered why they fall prey to such mental health issues?

Our lost childhood

 

Childhood is a time of innocence, a time of wonder, and no amount of fame and money can make up for the loss of a childhood. It has lost its meaning in this age. It has been discarded, manipulated and molded into some forms that do not even have the essence of being a “child” anymore. Gone are those days when children used to play in the mud, outside with friends, and with the real toys rather than the virtual ones. Even kids have become extremely out of the reach..
