You can't Fail

An idea can fail. A product can fail.
But that doesn't mean that you failed
or that the company failed.

You only fail when you stop trying,
or when you stop pushing yourself.
You fail, when you give up.
So till the time you are trying and
pushing yourself, you can't fail.

Storytelling Through Animation

I am a great fan of Japanese Animator Hayao Miyazaki, who has great sensibility in story telling. Some of his greatest works include : Spirited Away, Castle in the Sky and Porco Rosso. The other Japanese Animator who is also known as the God of Manga is Osamu Tezuka. His work includes the famous Animation ASTRO BOY.

One of the traits of these animators are not their animation skills, which off-course is to par with excellence, but their honestly in story telling. Now animation is a pretty time consuming process that requires a lot of planning and creativity than any other story telling process.

Though modern animation means more of 3D models and realistic visual graphics, 2D animation can also be as much interesting as any other realistic 3D animations. Below are some of the weirdest animations to illustrate the variety in 2D animation and detailing which can be achieved in story telling process.

Below is the animation from Osamu Tezuka, you can clearly see the detail of the animatio…

I Remembered U

During those moments of Silence,
and those moments of pain,
I (long pause) remembered U.

While the darkness was around the corner,
and my shadow was still clear,
I remembered U.

During the conflict of morality,
and the confusion of crowd,
I remembered U.

As the sun rose high,
and I opened my eye,
I remembered U.

As I was listening to JM,
and playing his rythm,
I remembered U.

As I was walking alone,
holding on to my dreams,
I remembered U.

U didn't come from my past,
neither from my present,
but I remembered U.

Personal Projects

As far as remember, I have been doing personal projects since I was a kid. From a simple stamp collection hobby to attempting to build a flying glider, my life has become an instances of projects, one after the other. The whole concept of giving form to a formless thoughts/idea is exciting and challenging.

That is why I am so in love with engineering, for me its the right discipline which deals with designing processes to achieve those visions. Channelizing thoughts from a sketch to a first prototype is a reward in itself. Throughout my experience, I have always found that people who have a hobby of doing personal projects have different approach to a problem solving. They seem to have clearer and wider perspective of the problem. They are also more practical in their approach and do not hold on to thoughts with a fear of failure. May be its because they have dealt with more failure than anyone in their lifetime. Overall, they are highly self-motivated and off course they are rare.

Everything is a Remix : Innovation is Inevitable

This is a three part, and more on the way, series on how ideas or innovations exist and discusses the DNA of Innovation. It basically compromises of COPY, TRANSFORM, and COMBINE.
Creativity isn’t magic: it happens by applying ordinary tools of thought to existing materials. And the soil from which we grow our creations is something we scorn and misunderstand even though it gives us so much — and that’s… copying.” ~ Kirby Ferguson

Pointless and Enlightened

It was not needed,
neither necessary.

But there he was,
standing on his own,
still and calm.

Pointless and Enlightened,
meaningless and yet relevant

Despair and Hope

Take away, Oh Take away
this despair and hope

the uncertain growth
with the winding roads

and the unwinding dreams
with an impossible scope
