Made In Bengaluru - Kannada Movie Review

Five minute review of Made In Bengaluru Kannada Movie - which is about struggles and triumph of startup founded by three friends in Bengaluru. Movie features veterans like Anant Nag, Sai Kumar, Prakash Belawadi, Sudha Belawadi, Ramesh Bhat along with new comers Madhusudan Govind, Puneet Manja, Vamshidhar, Himanshi Varma.  Though not great, this movie can be said as a good attempt looking at the dearth of movies made about startups in Kannada.

ಮೇಡ್ ಇನ್ ಬೆಂಗಳೂರು ಚಿತ್ರದ ವಿಶ್ಲೇಷಣೆ ಕೇವಲ ಐದು ನಿಮಿಷದಲ್ಲಿ . ಮೂವರು ಗೆಳೆಯರು ತಮ್ಮ ಕಾರ್ಪೊರೇಟ್ ಕೆಲಸಗಳನ್ನು ಬಿಟ್ಟು ಸ್ವಾರ್ಟ್ ಅಪ್ ಶುರುಮಾಡುವ ಕಥೆ ಇದರಲ್ಲಿದೆ. ಚಿತ್ರದಲ್ಲಿ ಅನಂತ ನಾಗ್, ಸಾಯಿಕುಮಾರ್ , ಪ್ರಕಾಶ್ ಬೆಳವಾಡಿ, ಸುಧಾ ಬೆಳವಾಡಿ ಜೊತೆಗೆ ಹೊಸಬರಾದ ಮಧುಸೂಧನ್ ಗೋವಿಂದ್, ಪುನೀತ್ ಮಂಜ, ವಂಶೀಧರ್, ಹಿಮಾಂಶಿ ವರ್ಮ ತಾರಾಗಣವಿದೆ. ಅತ್ಯುತ್ತಮವಲ್ಲದಿದ್ದರೂ ಸ್ಟಾರ್ಟ್ ಅಪ್ ಬಗೆಗಿನ ಚಿತ್ರಗಳ ಅಭಾವದ ಮಧ್ಯೆ ಈ ಚಿತ್ರ ಒಂದು ಉತ್ತಮ ಪ್ರಯತ್ನ ಅನ್ನಬಹುದು.

My Poem - Spirit of Life

Background : This poem is inspired by the painting "At the close of a joyful day" by Sir Lawrence Alma-Tadema. In the painting, after a joyful day, when the sun is about to set, a person standing at the seashore is observing the waves and is looking into the horizon. I believe this also depicts our mental state in these times of unprecedented challenges, anticipating a bright future ahead.

Spirit of Life 
                       By Raveesh Kumar

Like a high tide in the sea
It's a momentary joy!
Though the sea gone silent since
But the mind has its essence!

Will this day return again
With those wonderful moments
As the white in the marble shining in glow
and the sparkling sunshine subduing the blue!

If change is the only constant
Joy and sorrow take their turn!
Spirit of life remains high
After the times of sigh!

Sikkim Trip : Lachung, Yumthang Valley and Zero Point

Just like the famous Machu Picchu peak in South America, I thought! Though it was 5 am, it was already bright outside. From the balcony of my room, I was staring at three giant peaks! In comparison, the village below seemed tiny! After a moment, I could also hear the sound of a water fall from a far distance. I could spot a stream on the mountain. But wait, not one but many such streams. As I turned to my left, I saw a sparkling spectacle! Peaks of snow capped mountains glowing like gold in the sunlight!  Wow, I felt like I was being welcomed to Lachung in North Sikkim.

Three Giant Peaks, Lachung, North Sikkim
Three Giant Peaks, Lachung, North Sikkim (Can you spot the deer in the clouds?)
Streams in the Peaks, Lachung, North Sikkim
Streams in the Peaks, Lachung, North Sikkim
Moonlit Morning, Snow capped mountains, Lachung, North Sikkim
Moonlit Morning, Snow capped mountains, Lachung, North Sikkim
Golden Peaks, Lachung, North Sikkim
Golden Peaks, Lachung, North Sikkim

As I was contemplating, I remembered what my guide said,  "It was just the beginning!". But what could be a greater sight than this? Well, after an hour, we were on our way to find out. We felt blessed as we crossed a bridge decorated with Tibetan prayer flags of blue, white, red, green and yellow.
