Short Films

For the last few months, I have been watching a bunch of short films on YouTube, with most of them being from Indian directors, actors and storytellers. And everytime I watch a good one I am amazed at the amount of talent in India. Not just actors or directors, but also photographers, videographers, editors, sound engineers, etc. It has been a pleasant experience, and one that I am sure to continue for quite a long time (my YouTube Watch Later playlist is full of short films that seem interesting).

But it also makes me wonder how much this talent could be nurtured if we had more in the form of education and vocational training for people who want to pursue such careers. Bollywood is the world's largest film industry in terms of movies produced and tickets sold. How many more stories, telling stories, relevant stories could be told if movie making (and related) was made available as an educational choice? I only wonder...

I have spent a couple hours in the last few days moving my website to a new host. I knew that when I did this, I wanted to add a new CMS to start writing more often. I did that. And then, I spent some time updating the content on my home page to reflect my recent work, projects, etc.

A lot has happened in the last ~18 months. I graduated with a degree in Electronics and Telecommunication Engineering from Pune University, and started pursuing a Master's degree in Computer Engineering at Purdue School of Engineering and Technology, Indianapolis, USA. I have spent more time doing research than anything else in the last year, and I am happier for it. I wanted to communicate that to people visiting my website, and thus the update. If you haven't already, take a look.

Sticky post

New Beginnings

I have been toying with the idea of starting a micro-blog for quite a while now. I often stumble upon things that I want to write about, but not to the extent of a full-fledged blog post. I want to use this space for all such thoughts and things.

So, here goes!
