Thanks Swarathma. This is a bit late but we love you and you know it!




Big Hello to all those graduating this year!

It’s been long. So, how are you?

How’s the project going?

What are you working on?

We’d all like to hear your story about dealing with everything as the deadline crawls closer!

Take 5 minutes off and comment on this post!

Putting web links of photos(Facebook photo album, flickr page etc.) of your work-in-progress is a plus!

good luck! ūüėÄ


A Very Quick Update:

The Fundamental was a success I hear, However there were some technical snags. Everyone had fun, which is basically the goal of any college fest.

Classes in the Communication department are off to a sluggish start, in the wake of ¬†our HOD (prof.)Anand James’ 5 week leave. Manohar Desai has taken over some of the responsibilities for the time being. So we may go to him if any problems occur.

College is buzzing with activity as we rush to make it to our deadline in time.

The 2nd years are confused about where they are going and the 3rd years are worrying about their portfolio and summer internship.

Kalindi Ma’am ¬†has left SID and joined Pune University. We wish her luck and miss her dearly.¬†Urmila ma’am – the strict head librarian is back again on the front desk of the library. You have been fairly warned.

Prof. ¬†Mahendra Patel has devised a clever idea ( yes, very blatent and obvious, to our chagrin) — a Facebook group for 3rd year Graphic Design Students. It’s a forum for disucssion of imminent submissions, gathering support material and very importantly- Deadlines and Guidelines given by the Professor himself.

He is loved dearly everywhere he goes.. Maybe like Shahrukh Khan in Kal Ho Na Ho?  Anyway. I will not digress.

And everyone, I urge you to post a few links of some useful websites..It would be beneficial to all of us.. Here are a few I came across myself.

40 Creative Digital Remakes of Popular Movie Posters” ( http://bit.ly/9JqLrg )

The Future of User Interfaces http://bit.ly/b6d3DM

May the force be with you.
(P.S. I still haven’t outgrown Star Wars..)

The Fundamental 2010 Blog

With only 23 days left for Fundamental 2010, it’s good to know whats happenning and to keep pace with the increasing excitement and pressure that any such large scale preperation brings with itself. So here’s a link to keep yourself and your friends updated with the latest news on our yearly college fest- Fundamental.


A New Year

Congratulations everyone to have come thus far! Welcome to 20 10!!

I believe that a new year does not validate a mass celebration, we should wish our friends and family a happy year or just a happy “_____”, regardless of it being new or old. I would wish everyone a happy new month/ new day etc everyday every moment..too..But I guess, I’d be classified crazy or just weird, which just goes to show that I care about what people think of me after all.

However, ¬†I do¬†appreciate the concept of a new year celebration, which after everything is the unification of all- rich or poor, young or old, atheist agnostic or a believer too- any antipodes for that matter. On the 31st December 23:55hrs, everyone has one main reason to be happy, to celebrate and spread joy, —The New year!¬†— A new beginning, a start to leave the past year behind and make the most of the present and future moments.

This intent leads to resolutions ; which basically is a way to change our ways and perhaps to mend them too!¬†However as the days go by and the year stops being so new, so do the resolutions with it. Then, we sadly forget these un-kept resolutions , until the next new January ofcourse…and lo! The whole cycle begins again, and keeps repeating from then on..

However, mankind is united in its feeling and thinking on this new year regardless of everything, we remember that we are all one, a collective whole of individuals. This happy feeling of getting something new makes us all want to sing and dance and celebrate. For those who do not sing and dance and celebrates there is always another level of personal expression, happy or unhappy- and that counts. What I am making a note of is the feeling or the reaction which we inevitably share at the event of our monthly calendar and at this instance our yearly calendar jointly culminating to a final end.

An end leads to another beginning. And no man can ignore this. By writing this piece, I clearly have not. So here I am offering my thoughts to the world about this event in our lives- A Brand New Year.

Here’s wishing everyone a glorious year and life ahead. I wish happiness and peace to be a consistent unrelenting reality in our ‘global village’ this year, and every subsequent year after this. These are my wishes to all.
