This guy caught my attention so much these days. With the work he is doing and the updates he is posting on Instagram, my eyes just popping out like a cartoon 🙂 His name is Shiv, that’s what I knew about him in person but the way he is posting and the acts/life he is living makes me really envy.

Earlier I’ve mentioned him in my Century post. Once I start watching his timeline or stories my eyes stay glued 😛 Recently, he started posting about some artwork which he is working along with another sculptor Ranga. B’limey their 4 days hard work got really paid off on finishing the final output. Here we must term it as hard work cos it reflects clearly when you stare at this wall.

All this artwork has been going on as a part of #StartIndia campaign in various parts of the country. Do check out their Instagram page and appreciate the artists. What’s something more special is.. the I.T. Minister K. Taraka Ramarao has visited the place to see the artwork and the mighty effort they put in decorating the walls. One can see the splendid job they’ve done here.

Coming to Shiv’s work. He started working on this wall 4 days back in the narrow lanes of Maqtha, an area in Khairatabad coming under Secunderabad constituency. I followed his updates for two days and thought finally it was completed. But yesterday, I found it was completed when he posted the last pic with the original wall. #Stunningjob

They have started painting the long wall for a couple of days and made this juxtaposed artwork. He even mentioned that Shiv and Ranga got famous among the Maqtha people 😀

Shiv collaborated with Sculptor Ranga as a part of volunteering for Start India – an Art Organisation delivering the artistic works. Not only this artwork, he had earlier posted a couple of stories where he made handmade artwork.

The way he upload his content and the delivery of the artwork is pretty amazing. Even a geek gets zeal to try his hands on any these kinda artistic works.

I wish I could upload the whole story and making of this artwork. If you give a glance over this making video, you will understand how much patience and vision he had on the work. Shiv is an architect, artist and a nature lover.

When I saw this final product, its jaw-dropping. Spell bounded for the beauty. He even mentioned the name of artwork as “Linoleum Cut“.

He even mentioned that this his first print. Lets bless Shiv to make his hands dip in more creative works and his life will be more colourful.

So folks, who are interested to be an artist, ping him on Instagram and take suggestions or start learning any kind of Arts. We have 64 types of Arts as per our elders sayings. Below are few snaps of artistic works created by various artists in this campaign.

Art will never disappoint you. More you try, lesser the chance of feeling boredom in your life ^_^

Why should we choose an single art when we can live so longer. Try to be Multi-talented and Multi-professional.

Heart it 💓 Tumblr

Hey folks! Hope this Diwali brought you all great family time with loads and loads of fun. Bless you all with peace, bliss and satisfaction for the rest of life. Let this joy, health, wealth stay with you and sparkle your life every moment 🤞

Sparkle..  The grin on a child’s face on watching it. The word which a guy uses to flaunt her girl showing her beauty. The word that poets/writers use to inspire us and the way it makes them pour their deep dwelling love/ ideas. What’s the amount of time it consumes in a situation? A second? Minute? More than minute? Definitely, fraction of seconds right!!

In the present era of slow motion technology every moment can be captured with those ultra fast cameras but there are few people who used to see those scenes in the movies, where hero introduction begins with slow motion twirling, heroine draping her saree in a song, many more..  And then they starts working for that bit of reaction which these days we call as ‘GIF’s. Although this isn’t real meaning, the context is subjected to satisfy the title of the post 😋

We all are aware of gifs these days. Be it through WhatsApp or blogging portals to express the meaning of word in a single pic with an active expression. But have you ever realised or gave a thought how hard it is to make a gif, how much patience, passion and creativity it takes to make a gifset or gif. 

Well, let me share you the artists who are sitting behind those computers who work for 7-8 hours (sometimes a whole day) in capturing the HD image and rendering it into gif with absolutely perfect gradients and textures. Few people are so dedicated in this particular hobby where they don’t earn money but satisfy their souls with successful completion of their gifset (what kinda gifset maybe). Their mad love towards their favorites screen artist/anime/something will be reflected on the gifset. B’limey, on seeing these gif sets you must take care to avoid your jaw-dropping 😉

These kinda gifsets are simple with just the song or scene turning into definite frames.

While these gifsets show the mixture of action and theme of the story. They created a whole new story with random selection of reactions.

 

Click here for the action cos’ it is a blend of almost 40 gifs in a single set where only 10 images/gifs allowed. Think how hard they worked it to make it. See how many scenes/songs – MEMORIES… Isn’t?

Think one second, how long to you wynk and the time you need to capture and make it to play in a loop! Sometimes what we see in a movie rests for a very short span and the actions of nature like raindrops, thunderstorms, lightning are very fast besides unexpected. Few even record those moments and creates a gif. Imagine how much fast their mind works and reads the reaction.

Heart it : This is my first social network after Orkut mania (although I’m not a great orkut’er). This heart it still enable us to like innumerable number of gifs on various topics. But there are a couple of flaws here.  1. One cannot upload huge image (image size policy) and 2. There are no gifsets (many gifs in a single album).

Tumblr : Here comes the love of my life which satisfies all the above words. Tumblr enables us to upload videos, music, photos like every blogging portal besides it is the only portal having unlimited storage with high graphic content. No matter which language and where you are just give a try of your interest, you’ll definitely find some gifs. It’s pretty addictive I say. It also provide us to customize themes, create own blog with own theme (html lovers) and many more web design usage tactics. One can’t resist praising those theme makers for their effort and passion they show over designing. Check these couple of theme makers and you’ll agree I’m not exaggerating 😇

Behind the GIF : Why I am emphasizing so much about a gif. Let’s say for example if you want to show some emotion but you can’t describe in words — this will really helps. Here by I am presenting you the most and my favourite expression from Kirron Kher which I use often towards my dearest one’s.

How do you describe this. Spell 😂

Exactly, there are many emotions that can be understood on seeing a single GIF. It’s just a mixture of photo and video. Do you know how much the GIF stands usually? Maximum 30 seconds.!! These makers turn those long or short rapid moment into a specific size and time.

Incredible right! To make those GIF, One must download the HD video, trim the length exactly to the emotion they needed to be shown, resize it using Adobe PS mostly, apply gradients to match the color and reduce the noise or they can leave as their will, ensuring every frame in the same range without deviation and save. This hasn’t ended yet, that’s for one GIF. If you need a gifset of 8 gifs or huge GIF collage the strength multiplies x that number.

Look at this :

1. GIF

2. And this gifset

3. And this gifset too.

In the first GIF, it is an expression. In the second gifset, it is a group of GIF’s of same topic.While the third gifset is consisting of various scenes, moments portraying some meaning of the writer or the creator.

You know the song/scene how long it takes to make right. See the gifset reaction time. Imagine how wonderful they make it. #Talent Dude!!

This is also a kinda art like a canvas artist but what’s something is digital driven and having some source.

New ‘Meet Up’

And it’s another weekend!! Yuppie!!

This is usually our feeling about a weekend right.. Sometimes for some people at some instance has this feeling too..

Another weekend..!! What to do? Malls! Movies!! Cafes!!! Arcade zone!!!! Argghh..boreddd :((

I am into this kind 😛 To those who want to explore for something NEW and love hanging out with friends or new friends for some electrifying experience here is an app which is really interesting..

Meet up..  

An app allows to organise you or your friends or anyone on any interest where mutual

people can join and meet as simple as that.. Everyone is special and we all know that well versed quote ”

One for all, all for one “. Likewise this meets can support you, inspire, enlighten your ideas, overcome your fears unknowingly.
You may ask how? Just imagine, if you are alone and not at all a mingling person. You went to some trekking or art class, you found some piece of art drawing by someone and you can resist the urge to learn or appreciate which usually you won’t do in formal. Since it is a unofficial meet and no one cares your opinion you will pass freely your appreciation and shows your interest right!! Here you unknowingly started coming across that introvert kinda feeling.. Maybe another meet or trek might help you to move freely, build you courage to travel alone.. Who knows!

The app developers infact narrated precisely with simple beautiful lines as below.

screenshot_2017-08-01-22-33-40-026-e1501844255396.jpeg

What’s more is individuality.. It doesn’t matter how long you grown, one has to live for them self on their own feet which makes them feel super confident.

Here you are the decision maker, you bring the guts yourself to meet alone like naina in  yjhd and  everything surprises you bringing your older days of first day at schooling, college or that office. Thrill is what you’ll get.

Here are a couple of snapshots pertaining to my location and I am planning for going to somewhere ASAP 😂

What’s something more is we’ll get notifications once we show interest on first login like this..

 

Well, you may think what usually we can find.. Something like casual meets or comedy nights, if you feel so you stepped into that tomato tub even before la tomatina fest 😋 Take a look here dude!!

Celebrations need pair of hands and a pure to heart to share some love 💖 Meet to celebrate this moment, remembering that moment and for the upcoming life.

I couldn’t capture much but you’ve bundle of interesting Screenshot_2017-08-01-22-26-10-247things to do apart from sitting in that couch lazily on a cool morning sipping some coffee and feeling “I’m blessed to have this!!”.. Yes of course you are!!

But life won’t give you another chance to live that moment or that minute or even a second to get back. To those who feel they are running with life, they should realize they’re deeply seeking something to live new. If one connects with this emotion, these words aren’t needed to perfect explanation.

So here is a snap of few events according ti the category I found nearby folks.. Cheers! To those are in this city and going to join 😊

Depending upon the kinda meet, price charging varies. One can’t afford to take outstation for free since they created a meet up right or one need not to pay huge amount for casual chit chat in a coffee shop too..

If you feel interesting and got the essence to build some memories.. STEP OUT OF THE BOX !!!

This app is available on Play store and Apple store too.. So that’s all folks, one post after short break 😎

Bruised Passports ♥

Have you heard this name recently? Nope.. ? Ouch!! You missed something.. Yes, really!!

Bruised Passports

This is a blog title running by a blogger couple Savi and Vid sharing their experiences. I came across one snap in Instagram and simply followed. But when I took the link in the bio, It is mind blowing. Really that blew mind just like that.. Their life is so fun (tough though). Such an inspirational one.

Guess what's coming...

Intro : They’re mates in the school, friends later, in a relationship and they even got married successful. How lucky!! They together travel extensively so that they call that is the reason why their passports got bruised over stamping and all. Now can you understand why they named so 😀 In fact, they are not some useless or uneducated people who just travel for the sake of fun. You’ll wonder once you go through their credentials here

They shared this video of a day life in their travel diary.. How amazing right !! They designed the website so clearly (slightly funding for travel even :P) that so much information is incorporated in a simple way. More links for every aspect.. Truly admirable 🙂

Instant Camera

Instant camera.. 90’s kids knew it very well.. Often found at Tourist spots and Festivals.. It’s been long time since people forgot this.. Thanks to Bollywood and Passionate Photographers who brought them into limelight again 🙂

instax-camera

Well, here is the scenario.. You got a place when you want to capture your loved one’s expression instantly, Instant camera works. If you hate the fumbling over phone or if you hate the fact that  you can’t physically touch the photo, Instant camera takes the place 🙂 Click and See ♥

The instant camera is a type of camera which uses self-developing film to create a chemically developed print shortly after taking the picture. Polaroid Corporation pioneered (and patented) consumer friendly instant cameras and film, and were followed by various other manufacturers.

Polaroid and Fujifilm are two brands that are popular in the market. Insta X Mini 8 is trending now for various reasons although Polaroid has its own genre of followers and Fujifilm has its own brand 🙂

Polaroid has unveiled a new version of that old-school Polaroid camera called the 300 Instant Camera. The 300 prints photos that are business card size, just like the PoGo printer Polaroid has been offering for a while.

How it would be if you use an instant camera? Well, the pictures are short like card size and of great quality. The best part is most of the cameras are affordable, user-friendly and instant snaps without hassle. Here is a set of photos which attract undoubtedly and make it your habit :*

Even the reviews are good for your bucks and the pictures taken by the users in real were outstanding.. Rs.5,000/- ? Budget mobile price but this passion and fun will not be attained in those smartphones.. Especially, for those who love to live differently and “seize the moment” mindset people this is it for you..

Cons would be the film cost only.. 20 films costs around Rs.1,000/- and that was slightly high. If we can seek any alternative for the film, then this would be great gift to ourselves ^_^

Heritage

Have you ever seen hanging pillars?

Do you know how much a ship weighs? 2240 pounds .. almost 1000 kgs!! Can you believe that a bell causes a ship wreck?

Can you imagine that a hidden secret tunnel about 8kms built inside a fort?

This isn’t about a particular religion or caste or creed. It is about the architecture, talent and the smart brains of our ancients. With no advanced technology, they built many wonders those we can’t recreate now even with our latest technology. Do you think it is possible for us to do any of the above in those days, just imagine!!

They didn’t disturbed the nature, eco – friendly. Infact, these structures were more support to nature. Right from the water pipes in the Golconda fort to the Sun dial in Konark, every piece is fascinating. Its time to learn some stuff seriously without disturbing the nature 🙂

Lepakshi – Hanging Pillars

This temple was built in 16th century by Vijayanagara dynasty. It is situated in the village Lepakshi in Ananthapur district of Andhra Pradesh. Mythologically and archaelogically significant. There is a monolithic sculpture of granite bull which is 200 metres away from the temple.

lepakshi-temple-hanging-pillar-8

It was sculptured in such a way facing to the courtyard of the Lord Shiva’s idol representing with the giant serpent.

Shiva linga protected by the seven headed serpent - Mythical India

What’s more interesting here is the pillars.. The pillars doesn’t rest on the ground completely and there were about 70 and odd pillars in the temple like that. Can you believe a huge temple rests on the pillars which doesn’t rest on the ground completely even?

Image result for hanging pillars

Konark Temple – Orissa

Famous as the “Sun Temple”. It is one of the magnificent temples constructed by ancestors in India. The sculptures gave us fascinating structures to watch and learn. As per wikipedia, the temple was built by King Narasimhadev. It is about 220 feet in high and near to the sea. Take a look in the street view sponsored by our very close mate Google 😉

This entire structure was built with granite. Literally, no cement or no concrete. The idol of Sun God was kept suspended in the air by the force of the magnets. The idol of Sun God had a diamond which reflected the rays of the Sun, hence the name KoN-ark.

Image result for konark temple sundial

That sun – dial was balanced with magnets and disturbed the compass in the ships. The magnet was removed by portugese after they discovered that the magnetic fields from the dial is the reason for the ship wrecks in the area. Just imagine how strong and powerful those magnets were.

Hyderabad – Golconda Fort

Apart from the historical attraction, one should knew about the facts and architecture exists behind this structure. Built by Kakatiyas in 12th century which is about 120 mts high with granite covering an area of 40 Sq.km.

There are few hidden secrets too. A secret passage of 8km from a corner to Gosha Mahal. It is the place where Kohinoor diamond once held in the vault 😀 What’s more interesting is the acoustic technology they used in those days only where anyone ring the bell or clap at the base enables the other to hear at the top of fort. Amazing right..!! Few more exists, take a look 🙂
