एक्टर बनना है?... ख़ुद से अलग होना सीखें!


एक्टिंग का मतलब सिर्फ़ बॉलीवुड या हॉलीवुड ही नहीं होता। इसके अंदर बहुत गहराई है जिसमें डूबने के बाद, ज़िंदगी जीने का आपका नज़रिया ही बदल जाएगा। जब आप एक्टिंग सीखने लगते हैं और एक्टिंग करने लगते हैं तब समझ में आने लगता है कि एक्टिंग सिर्फ़ ग्लैमर नहीं है, सिर्फ़ चकाचौंध नहीं है, बल्कि आत्मा को आत्मिक आनन्द देने वाली कला है|

हालाँकि ये सच है कि ज़्यादातर लोग और युवा फ़िल्मों की चमक-दमक, नाम और पैसा देखकर ही एक्टिंग की ओर आकर्षित होते हैं लेकिन जो भी आप पर्दे पर देखते हैं, दरअसल वो तो एक बहुत बड़ी टीम का प्रयास है, एक प्रोडक्ट है। कहानी के संदेश को दर्शकों तक पहुँचाने वाला एक्टर भी इसी टीम का एक हिस्सा मात्र हैl

लेकिन चूँकि एक्टर का काम मानवीय संवेदनाओं से जुड़ा होता है इसलिए ये अत्यन्त दुष्कर और जटिल काम होता है क्योंकि इसमें आप अपने आप को भूलकर कुछ और बन जाते हैं, कुछ और हो जाते हैं आप वो बन जाते हैं जो आप वास्तविक ज़िंदगी में नहीं हैं अगर आप ख़ुद से अलग होना नहीं सीखेंगे तो आप दूसरे पात्र में भी नहीं ढल सकते। ये एक तरह से परकाया प्रवेश जैसा काम है, जिसमें जैसे आप किसी दूसरे शरीर में प्रवेश कर जाते हैं और फिर उसी के अनुरूप अपनी भावनाओं और संवेदनाओं को प्रकट करते हैं।

जब आप अभिनय से जुड़ जाते हैं तो फिर हर बार आप ख़ुद को ही नहीं प्रस्तुत कर सकते आपको कई अन्य तरह के किरदार भी  निभाने होते हैं, जो आप जैसे नहीं हैं इसीलिए एक्टिंग सीखते हुए आप ख़ुद से अलग होना सीखते हैं और दूसरी तरह के इंसान (पात्र/Character) बनने के लिए दूसरे इंसानों की भावनाओं को गहराई से जानने समझने लगते हैं |

आप एक से अनेक होने लगते हैं। ये आपके जीवन का विस्तार है इस प्रक्रिया में कई तरह के किरदारों से आप को वार्तालाप करना होता है दूसरे किरदारों से संवाद करते हुए और ख़ुद भी कई किरदार जीते हुए आप ख़ुद से भी वार्तालाप करना सीख जाते हैं, अपने आप से बातें करने लगते हैं, अंतरमन या अंतरआत्मा से बातें करने लगते हैं, अपने को पहचानने लगते है। रिश्ते-नाते, उनके बंधन और भावनाएं इन्हें आप समझने लगते हैं। साथ ही आपकी संवेदनाओं और भावनाओं का दायरा बढ़ने लगता है और ज़िंदगी को आप एक अलग ही नज़रिए से देखने लगते हैं।

ज़िंदगी लम्हा-दर-लम्हा नई लगती जाती है। अपने आप में एक नयापन महसूस होने लगता है। एक्टिंग आपको ज़िंदगी में भी सहज बना देती है। आत्मविश्वासी बनाती है, अच्छा इंसान बनाती है। लेकिन ये आत्मिक आनन्द उसी को प्राप्त हो सकता है जो पूरे मन से अभिनय को अपनाता है, अभिनय में डूबने लगता है और अभिनय की आत्मा को समझने लगता है। इसीलिए ओशो ने कहा- "Acting is the most spiritual profession and all spiritual persons are nothing but actors. The whole earth is their stage, and the whole of life is nothing but a drama enacted!"

YOUR ACTIONS LEAD YOU

The most dreadful word that everyone comes across in their life is EXAMS and that is also something which is inescapable. Everyone has to take exams and excuses of traffic don’t work for it but do you know that you deal with exams in your daily life, quite often. It is an exam when you have to choose between a shirt of Rs. 500 and another one costing 1000 bucks. If you fail, you will bear the consequences immediately. If you buy shirt worth Rs. 500, it might be of low quality and if you buy Rs. 1000 shirt, you may encounter the same shirt of lesser amount in the next shop. Now, you may say that it is just the luck but it’s not. Our every next action is directly or indirectly connected to our previous action. If we go back and start connecting our actions we will definitely reach to our childhood, you can give it a try.
If you are sitting on a chair and reading this then definitely you have done something to reach to it. It is possible that you took an off from your classes today because you had an argument with your boyfriend in morning and you just log in to Face book to stalk your ex’s profile but you find this article. You read it and started linking your actions you took before your break up. Keep going on, you may find a full-stop to end the argument.

It’s really not difficult to pass the exams of life. Whenever you find yourself stuck, all you have to do is j ust go through your previous actions and you will find the solutions there only.

Why writing is important?


Writing is what we are, we always write what we are when we write on our free will. There may be times when we have to write within some boundaries but our ‘I’ gets into it somehow and somewhere. Why we are talking about writing and why is it important can be described in a few points laid down below:
  • Writing is the primary basis upon which your work, your learning, and your intellect will be judged—in college, in the workplace, and in the community.
  • Writing expresses who you are as a person.
  • Writing is portable and permanent. It makes your thinking visible.
  • Writing ideas down preserves them so that you can reflect upon them later.
  • Writing helps you move easily among facts, inferences, and opinions without getting confused—and without confusing your reader.
  • Writing promotes your ability to pose worthwhile questions.
  • Writing fosters your ability to explain a complex position to readers, and to yourself.
  • Writing helps others give you feedback.
  • Writing helps you refine your ideas when you give others feedback.
  • Writing requires that you anticipate your readers’ needs. Your ability to do so demonstrates your intellectual flexibility and maturity.
  • Writing out your ideas permits you to evaluate the adequacy of your argument.
  • Writing stimulates you to extend a line of thought beyond your first impressions or gut responses.  
  • Writing helps you understand how truth is established in a given discipline.
  • Writing equips you with the communication and thinking skills you need to participate effectively in democracy.


Whenever you write, write for yourself first. If you do so, you will never do injustice to writing. You may find yourself writing for your organization but never forget that you have a free spirit as well and of course the free media, social media.

Choose wisely your gateway to media…

As everybody knows, media is called the fourth pillar of democracy and it is not just called it actually has proved has itself the way it affects the day to day human life and behavior. You know who can carry out the big changes, obviously a big team and the potential in the team.

Nowadays two very common myths about media are taking rounds, one is that there are fewer jobs in media and the second is that media pays lesser than other industries. However, both are just myths. A power industry that is so widely spread can never be short of job opportunities. The increasing competition has surely made it difficult to grab a good job but there is no limit for the talented candidates and the candidates who are lead to right path. It is true that of you have the talent you can achieve the sky but an effective guidance is equally important. A lot of private institutes are opening daily offering media courses however while deteriorating the educational status, they are just aimed to earn more and more profit. The pump and show of the institutes opened by the builders and other professionals having no media qualifications are merely providing degrees and no education. So in order to achieve success in media, students must choose their path wisely. Here is a guide what they should look for in a media institution before taking admission.

1.     Practical Training: You cannot learn about media through books only. Practical is the essential part of media education. It allows you to be prepared for the actual professional industry. There is actually a lot of difference between what is taught at educational institutions and what students actually face in the industry. Practical training involves visits to media houses, in-house printing and production activities, organizing debates and talk shows on current issues etc.

2.     Degree/Diploma: While practical training is most important part of media education, it is also necessary to get a degree/diploma from approved government university so you can further continue with your studies and research work if at any point of time you find yourself interested for that.

3.     Experienced faculty: Don’t hesitate to enquire about faculties. People having experience in the same field can impart you the best knowledge. A house builder cannot give you the correct insight of media houses.

As a matter of your future, you need to be more diligent while selecting your path.

Respect

To be one, to be united is a great thing. But to respect the right to be different is maybe even greater.”
Bono
What exactly is respect? It’s the sense of worth or personal value that you attach to someone. Respect is an overall evaluation you give someone based on many factors – what that person is doing with their life, how they treat you and others, whether they are honest or not and if they seem to consistently do good things, large or small, for other people. In short, respect is a positive view that you form of how someone is living their life. On the other hand, self-respect is your view of how you’re living your life.
In this two-part series, we will explore three areas of respect – self-respect, respect for others and other people’s respect for you. All three of these areas of respect are very important and if you fail to achieve any of these three, your own respect ultimately bears the consequences.
Keep this in mind: you owe everyone a basic level of respect for being a fellow human being, but your level of respect for others will vary from person to person. Just like your self-respect will grow as you master the ideals discussed above, your level of respect for others will vary depending upon your view of them and their own self-respect. 
There’s nothing wrong with affording some people greater respect than others. You should be kind and polite to everyone – no question about that. But for obvious reasons, some of us simply deserve more respect than others. For example, I think we would all agree that a consistently honest person deserves more respect than a habitual liar. So, always be kind, polite and afford a basic level of respect for your fellow man, but you shouldn’t afford beyond basic respect to those who aren’t working on ideals you believe to be important.
Respect is one of mankind’s most noble sentiments. The highest levels of respect are always earned – never given. This is true of self-respect as well as respect for others. Before granting the highest level of self-respect or respect for others, make sure the person is worthy of the honor. 

“Respect for ourselves guides our morals;
respect for others guides our manners.”
Laurence Stone

Companionship

This word explains and controls everyone’s life in so many ways directly or indirectly. Beat it or not but half of what we become in our life is affected by the kind of companionship we maintain in our life especially during our college days.  The age we start college is our developing age. We get rigorously affected by situations and people around us in this age and that makes the task of choosing a right kind of companionship, a big task.
However, there is a huge range of potential companions for us all from dogs to close friends, it is really important to find the companionship that works for you. For some, this will involve getting a pet, whilst some fall in love and others may be happy with friends and family.
Companionship is important to lead a sound life and finding it, is, of course, different for each individual. It is important to find the route that is best for you rather than simply following the lead of others. If you are in a wrong companionship, it may destroy your mental peace as well as affect physical health negatively because an unhealthy mind ultimately leads to an unhealthy body. Choose wisely when you choose your friends or your lover. Spend more time on making your companionship healthy rather than choosing a dress.
