    I would like to start this piece with the quote “Loneliness allows your soul room to grow”-by Janet fitch. Loneliness is a feeling of being alone or feeling sad about it. So, when we're lonely, we sit and listen to sad music. During this period, we may feel distant from others and rejected, which implies that we believe that whatever the other person is telling us is working against us. When I'm lonely, I'm continuously exhausted, it's difficult for me to complete any job, and I'm so distracted that I can't concentrate on anything. When I'm lonely, I tend to overeat and acquire a lot of weight. So these are the things that happen to me.

    When someone thinks of a movie from India, the first thing that pops into the mind is a dance number. While that’s mostly unique to the Indian Films, not many know that even many Hollywood movies used to feature songs until the early 20th Century, albeit in a different way. In fact, that is the time when Bollywood, the clichéd name that represents the entire Indian film industry had its origins. To the unknown, the name Bollywood was inspired by Hollywood with B representing the city of Bombay where its roots were formed. India has many different languages, Hindi being the most spoken one. As Bollywood primarily produces Hindi-based films, this very reason also laid the foundation for the inception of regional cinema in different languages. Among all, there are 4 film industries that gain the maximum traction other than Bollywood. They are Kollywood based on the Tamil Language, Tollywood based on the Telugu language, Mollywood based on the Malayalam language and Sandalwood based on the Kannada language. It’s interesting to know that all these 4 languages are primarily spoken in the Southern parts of India and hence the term regional cinema. Many refer the movies from any of these industries collectively as “South Indian Movies”.



    While it still is a fact that Bollywood is the biggest film industry in India, the content that the regional cinema has been producing for the past few years is on a different level altogether. Coming from Tollywood, the movies Bahubali part 1 and 2 have been the trendsetters, as the franchise became the highest-grossing one among all the film industries in India. The franchise was dubbed and released in all 5 languages simultaneously and became the instant favorite for all. The success also paved the way for many Pan-Indian films, completely erasing the language boundary. Blockbusters like KGF – 1, RRR, and KGF - 2 are the best examples. Meanwhile, Bollywood is not keeping up with the pace of the regional cinema not just in terms of the quality of the movies but also the penetrability. The change is real and hence the future of the Indian cinema is not just for Bollywood but for all the Indian film industries combined.

    Have you ever wondered if magic is real? If all the stories you heard growing up about things appearing out of thin air and your wishes being full-filled ? I personally believe that magic is totally real. It can be observed in the heart of engineering and science.

    Have you ever wondered if there exists criteria for beauty? We often listen to the phrase that beauty lies in the eyes of the holder but there are a few things like famous architecture or patterns which are claimed to be beautiful by more than 95% of the population. What could be common between a pattern of colors on a drawing and a building in Chicago downtown that is appealing to most the eyes? So there is a no. which roughly defines beauty. This no. is called the golden ratio.

    Who is an Artist? An artist is someone who creates a novel, writes poems, makes films, or does other things that can be considered works of art. An artist is a performer such as a musician, actor, or dancer. Being an individual, a group of individuals or a community requires you to encourage others. Every artist in this world is doing their best, and a kind word of encouragement can occasionally help them understand they're not alone. Encouragement does not cost you billions of dollars, nor does it cost you a penny. A person can be driven and perform wonders in life with just a few encouraging words and a smile.

    So would like to start of this piece with a small quote “the two hardest things to say in life are hello for the first time and goodbye for the last”-Moira Rogers. As a result, this line eloquently demonstrates or expresses how tough it is to say goodbye to one another. I'd want to discuss three different farewells that are important in life. Yes, there may be many for others, but I'd like to focus on the three stages that are most crucial. It is either a cheerful farewell, where you say goodbye to one another with a smile on your face, or a sad farewell, where you say goodbye to one another with all your sorrows.
