As I Experienced it at DL&K

In a skeptic, not so confident, tentative, scared and curious state of mind I joined an organisation which was then called Digital Law & Kenneth. My first proper job and I can’t quiet understand why I choose Friday as my joining day. (Rather stupid of me,I suppose).

Anyway to carry on with the story, the first month or so was full of mixed emotions. A zillion new people, ten thousand new things to learn, a totally different ( good different i.e.) ambiance and a whole new ball game. I was now a part of the popular culture of social media. Before this Facebook and Twitter to me were platforms to have fun with friends. But now, I was a part of a team who saw these sites from a completely different angle. Posts, .engagement rate, likes comments shares. trends, ideas, campaigns all became part of my life.

A few months down the line when the acquaintance phase ended and colleagues became friends, work became fun and office hours became a lot more than ppt’s and meetings. Brainstorming sessions were more of laughter riots and less of cracking ideas. Thanks to these we did come up with some kick ass thoughts and execution too. Our team was called the Social Ninjas; our strength fluctuated between 8-13… Interns came in as fillers every now and then. A bunch of crazy peeps we indulged in mad discussions on a daily basis. Lot of breaks, watching epic hilarious videos (tapatap, Sunday morning love you) full power song bajaoing ( eye to eye, what does the fox say) and of course non stop cribbing was our agenda every day.Characters such as a metal head, baba ramanism, an accessories queen, a judgmental princess, a tube-light, a diabolic seeder, a snacks provider( that’s me, for the lack of any other suitable title), a self obsessed photoshoot lover and of course our awesome bosses adorned the team.

When our standards alleviated from the second floor den to the spectacular 3rd floor, the eccentricity escalated. It was like a classroom full of crazies meeting every day. The celebrations that took place on every big or small occasions were fantastic. I have collected some truly unforgettable memories of Halloween and Diwali. Last years Christmas and V day are equally memorable. The shift bought with it a lot more chaos and confusion, but it was an addiction I thoroughly enjoyed.

If I have to talk about work, we did lots of it. A bucketful of ideas were drained out of us every single day. Crib-work-laugh-cry-repeat was the circle that engulfed our lives.  Last minute changes were a must…

On a serious note, this workplace taught me everything I know about the business side of social media. I met and got to know some brilliant people. Their creative minds and sheer persona was inspiring and still is. How to have fun at work was another important thing I learned here..

Now that I have moved out and on with my life some place else, I miss  L&K. I can’t even begin to describe the many moments and oh so many friends that made my stay worth its while. You mad hatters are being missed.

Yes our skin colour is white.
But In winters we too shiver.
And our clothes also get soaked in rain..
Yes we have to stain our eyes.
But to us also the sky is blue and grass green.
Yes our skin gets sun burns.
But others also get a tan.
We also get ranks in our class.
And medals on sports day.
We can also perform a stage show in college.
And cam start our own company.
Then why do People see us differently n
Y are we  treated  differently.
Like its a disease we have..
We albinos are also the creations of all mighty.
We are a symbol of pure beauty

What Love Feels Like

Love is in the air
With you my sweetheart
I wish to share
These moments of ecstasy & frenzy

Your dreams are mine
Amd I wish for mine to be yours
To live them and see them fulfill
With each others eyes.

Travel this beautiful world around
With you hand in hand held
I wish to be your wings
For you to fly as high as you can.

Give you all the pleasures
Pamper you n care for like none has
You complete my life dear
I belong to you till my last breath
Promise to be there always
For one look of that innocent sweet smile
I simply die.

BARFI- As sweet as its name….

…..For all those who consider movies as an entertainment and a reason for smiling, Barfi is the one you gotta catch. Right from the beginning when the melodious sound of the  song picture shuru fill in your ears till the end , the move never fails to make you laugh. It is a display of  a sweet romance between a mute Ranbir Kapoor(Barfi) and an Autistic Priyanka Chopra(Jhilmill). Both the protagonist have done more than justice to their roles.

The story is heart touching without too much drama. The movie is a joyous ride with its perfectly timed comic acts. The beauty of the cliched scenes  sliding doors, the butt pinching, the mindless chases are all enhanced by the soft and the melodious background score.   A few  sequences in the movie like Ranbir’s effort to make an autistic Priyanka smile with a  a flame shining in the middle of a bubble or the clever manner in which he proposes friendship to Iliana D Crouse by turning the clock 15 minutes behind  are magical.

The strong message which the movie sends across in a very simplistic way and without emphasizing to do so is that whatever  situations life throws at you, if you can smile  at all of them and be happy- the world is a beautiful place to live in.  Barfi with his happy go lucky nature makes a place for himself in the hearts of all those he comes across including the persistent cop. He never gets his disability in the way he lives his life and expresses himself. Never once  does he ask for sympathy. His unusual way of testing his friends brings out the originality of the character. His way of appreciation wide a wide smile and a sweet gesture by his fingers or showing anger with an arm raised in a slapping action speak  by themselves leaving no need for spoken words. 

Jhilmill-an autistic girl finds her true beloved in Barfi. Without even knowing and understanding the true meaning of the term love she loves him unconditionally. circumstances bring them together and then she holds his tiny finger to fall of to sleep every single night of their lives till they die together on one bed. Their playful acts with the mirror and Barfi tossing his shoe in the air as a sign of calling Jhilmill are remarkable.  the sparkle in her eyes on seeing the traditional Kolkatta based dance forms filled with colour are a sign of how well PC has got into the character . 

Though based around serious issues of physical disability, parents leaving their autistic child who is later kidnapped and almost killed for money, barfi with its amazingly soothing and melodious music, traditional acts of comedy made to look absolutely beautiful,  purity and genuineness of friendship, a completely unique and emotional love story is a must watch…..
