A rendezvous with Sushant Singh – hosting Savdhaan India

Quote

Hi, I am Anchal Sharma. And here I am with my latest blog.

As part of my internship under the WLCI Media course, I am having a gala time interviewing actors and TV stars. Guess whom did I interview this time? He is none other than actor Sushant Singh, the anchor of Savdhaan India.It is no secret that the rate of criminal activities taking place in India is alarming. Do you know that every year there are around 81,000 kidnapping incidents being reported in India? With such increasing number of cases happening around us, almost every individual has had a brush with some or the other kind of crime and felt unsafe in more than one situations.

We ignore the early signs of a crime, such as eve-teasing and bullying. Should we learn a lesson by recognizing cruelty and taking early action?

My recent interview with actor Sushant Singh of ‘Savdhaan India’ fame puts some light on this aspect. Sushant hosts the TV series broadcasted on Life Ok channel. In this candid conversation, he talks about the positive impact of the series over the viewers. He said that out of the numerous stories shown in the TV series; even if one individual gets the message then the purpose of the show will be met. He is happy and excited about the show as its 5th season is rolling down in a brand new avatar and a fresh tagline to go along.

I was curious to know more about the new season and the actor gladly elaborated the same to me. Sushant said that the show has been successfully running for last four years. it’s main aim is to alert the citizens against crimes and boost their confidence to fight back. The new tagline of Savdhaan India is ‘Darr ke nahi, Datt kar’.

Ignorance is our greatest weakness and we should stay alert round the clock. Sushant voices his reasons for taking up the show, adding “I took up the show (Savdhaan India) as any other work and my only condition was that I can’t do something like India’s Most Wanted, where there is lot of shouting and the show is sensationalized beyond demand.”

He further elaborates on the impact the show has on the society, saying: “People have come up to me and said ‘we’ve learnt a lot from the show’. Our aim is to spread awareness. We always show that the criminal is caught and people win when they fight back.”

Honestly, it was a memorable experience talking with Sushant Singh. Shows such as this actually open up the opportunity to spread awareness against different aspects of crimes, whether they are out in the open or happen behind closed doors. And with this, I urge everyone to be safe and alert.

Thank you WLCI for offering me such a wonderful chance to get in touch with TV personalities. I am really happy to meet them in person and see my name get published in national dailies.

Internship with a national daily – Ticket to my dream job

Hello,

My name is Anchal Sharma. I am a student of Media Production at WLCI College, Delhi. I would like to tell you about my first ever internship experience. Being a part of such a prestigious institute, I got an opportunity of an internship with The Pioneer, a leading English daily, while I was still pursuing the course. There I was working in the Sunday Pioneer department.

I must tell you, it was a thrilling experience, working with such a historical newspaper, and the practical experience I gained would help me in the future. Initially I was excited, curious and confused about my job role and responsibilities. However, gradually I began understanding the intricacies of the industry with each passing day. Since then, it became enjoyable and I loved the time spent at the newspaper office, learning new things each day, fully engrossed in work.

In the beginning, it was not a cakewalk but with the support of my seniors and co-workers at The Pioneer, I had started enjoying every bit of it. My reporting manager would guide me from time-to-time and explain how the editorial department of Print Media runs which helped me grow at a professional as well as a personal level.

This internship taught me a great deal about how to conduct an interview, the kind of questions to frame, how to manage cross questions by the interviewee and much more. Honestly, the experience has shaped me up and ingrained the values a media professional should possess.

As time passed by, I learnt how to create point source contacts and build a relationship with public relation agencies. These PR agencies are a key point of contact when we need to cover news stories.

The training period at Sunday Pioneer will help me build a strong base for my upcoming career. As I was trained in the professional skillsets required for an organization, the transformation from a college student to a responsible intern was a smooth journey.

Every day started with a new challenge and I thrived to find my sunshine because I kept on learning new things all the time.

The most wonderful experience was when I had a chance to interview the lead child artist Ashween Naamdaar of Naamkaran fame. Naamkaran is a new primetime daily soap, aired on Star Plus. It was an ecstatic moment when I met the protagonist of the show, Avni, a character played by actress Ashween.

At first I was nervous but after meeting and talking with this cute little girl, I felt more confident. I asked her about her role, what she loves to do, how does she manage between her studies and shoots, rapport with co-actors, inspiration behind joining television at such an early age, how much does she relate to her on-screen character, and so on. And she patiently replied to all my questions.

I must say, she is a bundle of fireworks, quick and apt at answering all the questions I asked her. I was seriously impressed by her voracious communication skills. You know what? I scripted it too!

One of the biggest moments of happiness was when this interview got published on September 11, 2016edition of the Sunday Pioneer, with my byline. I was on cloud nine, as this is my first and most special achievement in the Print industry. I will always be thankful to my college, WLCI, Delhi, teachers and mentors. They gave me the exposure that I have always wanted.

I wish to have more of such enriching events during my media production course at WLCI. I am confident that, by the time I leave college, I would have grown into a true professional who is ready to take on the world.

Advantages Of Fashion Technology

Technology is making things advanced and is making the world smaller. The world has become techno-savvy and it is not a breaking news. Technology is taking hold of every industry and every industry is taking advantage of technology for its betterment then why should fashion industry be left behind? With the help of technology;

- Better fabric would be developed which will improve the quality and increase the trust of the customers and the end-users as well.

- Merchandising of various textiles too is handled below the umbrella of fashion technology.

- Future needs are also to be analyzed to understand the changes in the customer taste and requirements which is done by conducting market researches and this also helps to understand the changing trends in the fashion industry.

WLCI plays an important role at the first step by making students aware of the use of technology in the fashion industry.

Money Matters

While we have been conditioned to believe that professional success is proportionate to he number of degrees we receive, it is not so any more. Traditional qualifications alone are not enough to make one rich. Lucrative careers have taken on a whole new meaning with a bunch of creative career options.

A favourite for long, the advertising industry today encompasses mobile and digital advertising with media like television and print. A passion for making catchy jingles along with the willingness to come up with something unique is crucial. You must also be creative and have strong people skills.

Engaging one’s imaginative sensibilities, a career in graphic designing entails using words, images, types and symbols to create captivating graphics. Granted that it is a powerful form of visual communication, graphic designers are much in demand. Courses in graphic design help to hone one’s skills in this.

Another course of study with which you cannot go wrong when it comes to lucrative careers has to be fashion designing. Outright glamorous and exciting, your salary will always show an upward moving trend if you become a reputed fashion designer.

As another very interesting line of work, media is making all the right noises be it in the form of newspapers, online sites, electronic media or even blogging. If you can make it to an international agency, the sky would be the limit as far as earning is concerned.

One of the best colleges around to pursue these creative courses is WLCI College. Admission is based on an All India Combined Entrance Test (AICET). For your ticket to lucrative careers, check http://admissions.wlci.in

Common Entrance Exam for Creative Courses

Students are high on professional courses today since it makes them job ready. To get started on it, a trend has been students taking combined entrance exams that test their credentials in domain knowledge, IQ and general knowledge. While a common entrance exam serves these criteria fine, it fails to evaluate one’s creative aptitude. This is a serious deterrent when it comes to choosing creative careers. No entrance test can map how innovative one is.

AICET 2016

While standardized tests do a good job of evaluating one’s quantitative ability and language skills along with general awareness, it can hardly serve as a pointer for a student or an applicant’s innovative ability. And without it is difficult to find out how apt a candidate would be for a creative course.

So, when I got to meet the chairman of Wigan & Leigh College, Vinay Pasricha, we had a discussion on the status of entrance exams in India. Like me, he too felt that the system needs to change. We need to encourage innovativeness in students so that we can instil leadership qualities in them for a better tomorrow. He told me about the combined entrance test in place at WLCI.

The All India Combined Entrance Test (AICET) for the academic year 2016, to be held on May 8, will test a student’s mathematical, language skills and also general knowledge. An added feature is a special test, to be held under the supervision of leading industry professionals, to evaluate a student’s creative abilities. Following this, students will be interviewed by these professionals to help them choose the right career path.

Registration is on till February 29. For details about AICET and WLCI, go to http://admissions.wlci.in/
