Bits and Pieces

if only i could go back
through time
to just be there,
sit in silence,
let the wind whisper past
in no words, find comfort
see the love
one that, through time
is just memories

if the universe allowed
i will be glad
so will wait
be patient and hope
to see the bits and pieces
broken off on the way
as I journeyed by self

Issue 15: Sem 3 spice up some photos for Digital Image Creation & Development (DICD)

Semester 3 were given the task of editing the photos taken by various students during their trip to Mombasa. 

The seaside photos that have been edited portray great editing skills. The inclusion on the tusks on one of the photos highlights the essence of Mombasa.

Mombasa is known for its  winding streets reminiscent of old Arab influence. One photo has been edited to give a feeling of new meets old.

Mamba village is a must-see. Two photos have been craftily edited reflecting why Kenya is indeed magical.

Another photo that caught our eye was the cake photo taken by the environmental team. The editing team beautifully transformed the picture with a ‘Go Green’ message. Just look at the change in background. 

Issue 14: 2016 Holi Festival Of Colours at Oshwal College

The color, noise and entertainment that accompanies the celebration of Holi bears witness to a feeling of oneness and sense of brotherhood. The festival brings home the lesson of spiritual and social harmony!!

Holi has long traditional links with several legends. According to one popular legend, the word Holi is derived from the demoness, Holika. She was the sister of Hiranya Kashipu (the name meaning love of gold and a soft bed), a demon king, who having defeated the gods, proclaimed his supremacy over everyone else in the Universe. Enraged over his son’s ardent devotion to Lord Vishnu, Hiranya Kashipu decides to punish him. He takes the help of his sister, Holika, who is immune to any damage from fire. Holika carries the small boy Prahlad into the fire but a divine intervention destroys her and saves Prahlad from getting burned. Thus Holi is celebrated to mark the burning of the evil Holika. Her effigy is consumed in the fire!

 

Holi is celebrated with special importance in the North of India. It solemnizes the love of Radha and Krishna. The spraying of colored powders recalls the love sport of Lord Krishna and His devotees.
