“OF ONE’S CHOICE”

“OF ONE’s CHOICE”

Human beings are free to act, and ones deed done nothing can stop the parleys of its consequences… Even God here cannot help. That’s the power of Karma, so says Mahabharata. This is our 21st century is relevant to the choices that we have related to the choices we make.

This article shall incite on choices and the freedom, responsibility, and consequences that tag us from cradle to grave. My point to start initiates from choices that society wields in the future generation of our country making the human being redundant in carving out their success.

INDIA- A Diverse Pasture

Let’s look at a country like India. A country with rich diversified demographics, culture, and one of the biggest populations in the Asian subcontinent is currently facing one of the highest unemployment rates compared to the last 20 years. The report also says that we have Unemployment as one of the new problems. India has more than 700 universities with 40,000 affiliated colleges enrolling more than 20 million students every year. Why a developing economy to the world and the third largest education system has not been able to meet its objective of providing a means of decent living and better life. I have over the years have come across several reasons in both magazines of national dailies and articles citing external reasons such as inadequate govt support, poor quality of teaching, Qualified teachers, voucher systems, inadequate pedagogic attention, weak infrastructure, and the list goes on. The recent reports reveal that India does allocate only 3.4-4 % of its budget towards education whereas the world average is 14%. What does this mean as education is the backbone of any developing nation?

Ancient Indian Education

What happened to India which had possessed a rich tradition of learning and education right from the beginning of time? This reminds me of the Katha Upanishad which says: He, who is possessed of supreme knowledge by the concentration of mind, must have his senses under control, like spirited steeds controlled by a charioteer. Ancient education in India was rooted in the Making of MAN and not just for survival alone. The system professed in theory and practice of training the mind and the process of thinking as bare essentials towards the acquisition and assimilation of knowledge. This method or system has thrown light on a unique angle on a sense of both perspective and proportion towards which the distinction of material and the moral, physical and spiritual, perishable and permanent interests and values of life are clearly defined and differentiated. This system had three simple processes. ShravanaManana, Nidhyasana. This simply means listening, initiate for self-interpretation & comprehension of truth. Such great were our education systems. Equally important were the temples of knowledge ones stood the center stage like Nalanda, Takshashila, Vikramshila, Vallabhi which had attracted people from all across the world. One of the most interesting aspects that are noticed here is the impact of forest and not the town that is the fountainhead of our civilization where we lived and realized over selves in close relations with mountains, forests, trees, and rivers.

The Reality

Much river has flown down the Ganges. India has lost much of its veneer in education with invading empires and armies such as Mughals, Britishers, Portuguese, and Arabs. Predominant left over is the British colonial system of education where the invading foreigners had extended hands to educate Indians for their purpose and benefit. Functions like manning and maintaining factories, establishing communication with local rulers and establishments, liaising with local people etc.The outcome of these deceitful extensions of help had resulted in accountants, engineers, lawyers, doctors which were only affordable for the higher classes of the society.

Marching Ahead ………

Well with the years went by this had caught the eye of the backward society drawing their eyes towards rich and affluent lifestyle. With much of the population belonging to middle and lower classes they soon discovered education as a solution for their upliftment from their current situation. This they felt would uproot both poverty and elevate their status.  It stands no doubt that many reformations in the education system have happened under the initiatives of various governments. These initiatives have given the majority of Indians the courage to Dream Big. With the upside, has the insidious subtle of downside. Are our rudders set in the right direction?

Education: The now and Future

The current system of education breeds on platforms of competition with examinations and assignments as tools towards capability assessment. The gauging factor of knowledge internalization depended on his scorecard. This rot system of learning has created a breakdown in the assimilation of “True Knowing”. Much of the same is felt with students gasping for survival in an alternative challenging situation. Responsibility in choosing one’s  interest would come to light when students at their young age are given a chance to reflect on what they imbibed during their formative years within their natural surroundings. After all, how good is Education if we are not able to find solutions to problems surrounding us?

Piggybacking: Our Colonial past

We in India still carry forward our colonial past as many of the parents find Subjects of Engineering a preferred choice of study or a career over many other disciplines. This has found deep synchronicity between education and status quo which has resulted and battered many an aspirant’s real choices of their innate potential. Would this muscling drive yield any productive results?

The Course Correction

Imparting of Education should be holistic for which should result in overall development in an Individual and should not be constrained towards learning a trade. Education should be a resultant of enlightenment/self-discovery of oneself with parents and schools donning the role of a catalyst for support. With world reeling under complex problems the relevance of MAN with diverse skills, the relevance has never been so prudent. 100 % of the success stories that we come across today had only happened on 2 facts of self-discovery and in chasing their dreams. A few mantras for success would be relevant here to complete my story which includes passion and conviction that shall help any individual come a full circle towards a happy self. My sense of responsibility towards my nation exerts further with a final prayer for all the parents in understanding the influential and infinite possibilities of entrepreneurship, artists, writers etc towards nation building. So, shall we get started….?

COVID 19: REIMAGINING POSSIBILITIES

COVID 19: REIMAGINING POSSIBILITIES

It’s raining since morning. With morning papers reporting a spike in virus from different parts of the world, the apprehension seems to be paving way for a long haul. Humanity has come a long way in tackling pandemic challenges which had pushed them towards breaking boundaries in space, land, and water. A few of the pandemics in history includes

  • Third cholera ( 1957 ) which spread from India to Asia,Europe and N. America
  • Asian Flu ( 1956-58 ) which started in China and killed roughly 1-4 million people
  • Typhus Epidemic (1918- 1922) due to the devastating effects of WW-1.
  • Cocoliztil, E-bola ( 1545-1578 )
  • Plague of Justinian
  • Antonine Plague
  • The Black death (14th Century ) ,
  • HIV , AIDS ( 1980)
  • Influenza ( 1918 )

No, this article is not about pandemics. The reference was merely a gesture towards indicating challenges that humanity had undergone and his struggle towards surviving and striving in overcoming those bubonic plagues days. With the spread of diseases identified in water, rodent etc. the“More-Safe” world we live in has been the Humanities capacity to reimagine Cities, Lifestyle, Transportation, Trade and Health & Hygiene. A memoire on happenings during the yesteryears pandemic had always reminded about disruptions and disasters across the world. Disruptions had always been a way of moving forward where it gives us that unique opportunity to reflect on over selves, actions and the consequences caused as a result of our own doing. The catharsis shakes the very crux of our patterned approach and helps us be more aware and thoughtful in what we do. Every pandemic has made man more intelligent persuading him to be more cautious and sustainable in his approach.

The current pandemic I personally see had been a resultant of Humanities sheer gastronomically desire curated from the markets of Wuhan in China. A result of un-demarcated consumption in unhygienic conditions. So much for “Man in the Making”

The current pandemic has been the worst hit as China, the origin of Covid 19, for two reasons. The one for its population and the other for its tag as “Worlds Factory “.

WHATS HAPPENING IN THE DESIGN INDUSTRY – DAYS OF COVID 19

Fashion & Allied Industries

Let’s say 2020 was supposed to be a good year without covid in Fashion. With Europe and America barely recovering from the 2001 financial crises, order books of several Asia markets were swelled with orders. From fashion shows and calendar’s being marked for new launches, the year looked promising for many manufacturers, suppliers and countries such as Bangladesh, Myanmar, China, India, and Vietnam who depended on exports to these markets towards their economic growth. An example here can be the country Bangladesh. Bangladesh government depends on 85 % of its earnings on the export of ready-made garments. The pandemic had now cost them cancellation in one third orders from many of their clients including pre booked ones which had cost them losing one third in their earnings. Some of the other reasons can be a huge drop in consumer demand to the tune of 30%-50 %. The early shut down of the Chinese Market had a devastating effect on the Fashion Industry. Silk Scarfs that are made for Luxury brands In Italy comes in big bulk from China. With an oversupply of inventories, missed seasons and ships still arriving in different parts of Europe the trend is definitely towards the discount culture that is prevalent in USA.

How has the Fashion Industry adapted itself?

Adapting can be a more appropriate term as the Industry has realized the harsh reality that had hit them and slowly is evolving towards a more realistic approach. The most effected have been the premium brands across the world with their limited stores and digital footprint. The mass brands with their online arm which used to contribute a mere 8-10 percent of the total business are also seeing a reversal in their fortunes. With social distancing in place and with restriction of customers in their outlets, brands are now adopting and discovering in providing a whole new experience using technology such as Virtual reality, Dynamic web sites, augmented reality, content up gradation, Product detail, Webinars& Live interactions, digital fashion Etc. The use of technology such as AI & DATA has also been infused in all their communication towards enhanced customer understanding and forecasting. Logistics has also been realigned through many Brands listing themselves with shopping aggregators such as Amazon, Flip kart in doorstep delivery of their products and services. Another interesting change is the new product line that they have introduced in the form of face masks, protective gears and sanitizers that carry their trademark, style &scents. Sportswear and casual Home wear are the current trends. The demand for casual and Lounge wear in UK jumped 433%. With Conscious shopping steadily gaining traction the consumer would still limit one’s cart with bare essentials. This is due to an overall economic downturn along with the decreasing number of purchase occasions. With gradual restrictions and resumptions of social activities across the countries, we are seeing a slow trajectory pointed upwards in the coming days.

10 SIGNS YOU ARE MEANT TO BE A DESIGNER

More often than not, we tend to realize we are meant to be designers who bring out the creativity in the world through our designs which communicate more than words do. If you have not realized yet whether you can make it as a good designer or not, these design traits can be of good help.

1.YOU SEE DESIGN IN EVERYTHING

You love everything and you see the design in everything around.

You could be scrolling down through your Instagram feed and stop and wonder, what font this account has used and how you could have made it look better by adding something different, a different font or a different colour maybe.

The designer in you knows you are surrounded by design all the time, you can’t shake out the thought from your mind about ideas and solutions to everything you see around and experience.

2.TINY DETAILS MATTER TO YOU

You care about tiny details as a designer. You are not just detail-oriented, identifying the details matter too. Because you believe in giving people the best experiences they desire, and you pay attention to every single detail.

3.PROBLEM-SOLVING IS YOUR FIRST PRIORITY

You are perceptive and solving problems is an everyday responsibility you are willing to take cause that’s what a designer does. You can see outside the design and provide solutions to real problems. As a designer, you are able to think logistically and critically to make things work and look dazzling. You care about solving problems because a great designer is compassionate and looks at the needs of the people. You go overboard with problem-solving.

4.YOU REFUSE TO STANDBY THE STATUS QUO

You don’t go by books. You fill in your own blanks and stand tall at the idea of raising beyond “good enough” and always move towards building your own status Quo.

Good designers often innovate and make things better around them.

5.YOUR DESIGNS SPEAK LOUDER THAN YOU

Good designers are known for their designs. You are a good communicator or willing to learn eventually. You can communicate the ideas and concepts through designs wells. You can work as a team in a collaborative environment with other employees.

If you cannot put your ideas and information through a visual medium, it can be learned and improved just like any other skill.

6.YOU DON’T LOSE TRACK OF TIME

You probably know a few designers who spend most of your time just picking the right font, the right layout or hue of red, for your design work.

We are aware of a few scenarios where designers skip their meals straight for 2 days. No, this is not an exaggeration. This is real.

This shows that a designer is extremely focused and determined to bring out the best in designs that he loses his track of time.

On the other hand, productive designers are able to manage time and only focus on the details that matter and solve the problems quickly. A good designer is purposeful in her work and she always results-driven no matter what hurdles come by.

If you have trouble taking control of your time, you can improve it.

7.FOR YOU, CREATIVITY NEVER GOES OUT OF STYLE

You already know it.

“Creative” is the most popular word you hear in the design world.

Needless to say, a good designer is creative as hell with whatever idea or concept you give. As a person with good creative skills, you are resourceful, look at things in ways more than one. As a creative person, you constantly seek ways to add a bit more creativity to anything you design.

8.YOU ARE PATIENT BY NATURE

Sometimes, design work can take forever – you don’t get sulky to finish the design quickly in haste. You would rather introduce patience in your work and let things dive in slowly to work on communication and try out creative alternatives before finalizing the design.

9.BUSINESS SAVVY

Although too much design and creativity is involved, it is never to forget that design is a beautiful business that keeps our eyes and visual senses at awe.

10.OPEN TO EVOLUTION

As a designer, you may witness ups and downs in your professional career. You understand that evolution is the key to keep it going. As a good designer, you are open to growing and seeking new inspiration in any possible way you know can help you the best. You try out new technology, share ideas through design with a wider creative community and never leave your seat as a teacher.

You are a business-savvy because while you are in a designer mode, you understand your preferences and opinions come second to the client’s business goals. It is easy for you to make decisions that are good for your users and their business, although you desperately have a few improvements with design and colours.

FINAL THOUGHTS TO WANDER WITH

We could possibly mention all the great tyrait of designers – your passion and the will to design something new each day is what makes every other trait of a designer stand out.

If you are not a designer yet, you may see some of the signs pushing you towards your design career path, let that feeling stick and decide if you have to take this moment towards choosing a design career path.

These are the ones that stand out in our minds, and the qualities we have observed over the time in our designers and our MAD School students who have successfully grown as designers from various design reputed colleges in India. While these 10 signs of a good designer alone may not be the secret traits, we believe anyone who is passionate and a great problem solver can grow as a designer in any design industry they choose to work for.

If you would like to enhance your already great design skills, check us out for NID Coaching, CEED Coaching Centre, UCEED Coaching Classes near you to bring out the designer in you and kickstart your career as a designer in the best design college you want to join.

DESIGN CAREER: THE NEW CATALYST

DESIGN CAREER: THE NEW CATALYST

We live in the age, surrounded by Design and yet not feel the impact of “Design” that surrounds us. From our personal hand held devices, human mobility, spaces that we occupy & interact, communication methods do have that invisible wand of design element integrated towards for a better experience, convenience and comfort. The article intends to throw light on this emerging discipline that has helped many firms’ success and fortunes.

DESIGN: THE NEED OF THE HOUR

Design for most of us has a different connotation or an understanding. Association of design for some would be limited to Art, Craft or simply a discipline that confines to aesthetic appeal. I have been over the years trying to de-cluster and help aspirants to understand this discipline in a more simplified manner. Design according to me simply means “Reimagining Possibilities” of form, function, ergonomics, affordability, Manufacturing and Usability.

To understand the importance of Design we would need to ponder the yester years of industrial revolution. What was once associated with function has evolved into a stage of a differentiator and is now becoming a part of our culture. Design has been the need of the Hour with raising expectations, elevated demands, unique experiences, user friendliness/usability along with affordability and mass manufacturing potential. The success of fortune 500 companies like Microsoft, DELL, and Apple does owe their success to Design as a culture practiced at every step of their way. The success of these companies did have an inherent DNA towards a Human centric approach relevant to all their product design and development. One of the most successful stories of this century owes to the invention of Apple computers and its relative success with their product lines and extensions which include Iphone & Ipads.Such has been the power of design which has manifested itself as a differentiator in side stepping competition and as a Unique selling proposition. Design intervention or as a disruptor is now a culture in every step of product development and design. The process changes the way we see and look at things deriving the optimum usage and user friendliness at each of the development stages. Walkman, Mobile phones, cameras, audio –video equipment are some of the examples. Design has also paved the way towards exploring the potential that rests within the higher cognitive skills towards understanding the customer needs and requirements better. From conception of an idea towards execution design has been instrumental in touch basing on several important factors such as sustainability, eco friendliness, universality that tends to go with the current cyclical economy.

DESIGN: APPLICATIONS

The application of design is seen across all sectors which include Media and entertainment, financial sector, Mobility and transportation, Education, Telecommunications, Agriculture & allied industries, and ITES& IT etc. The process tends to elevate the overall experience for the customer. Some of the highlighting factors of this century being convenience, comfort and value for money. One of the most applications in design can be visible in the form of applications as aggregators. These include Ola, Zomato, and Uber etc. Besides causing disruption the applications have created a new customer segment and have helped in creating jobs. The current trend in design is led by technology in the areas of new media, IT & ITES. Design is no more a discipline in silos but has successfully married or has been integrated with Technology and allied manufacturing verticals.

DESIGN CAREER IN ABROAD

There are several colleges which offer undergraduate and postgraduate degrees/ diploma in Design education. The objective of the design education is not limited to carry out a function but towards creating thought leaders in the industry. Some of the big names in Design coaching include Parsons, Isituto Maringoni , Royal college of Art, University of Arts , London, Rhode island school of design , MIT, Aalto university, Glasgow school of Art, Pratt Institute, Sheridan college etc. These colleges offer both UG/Master programs in a variety of disciplines in design and art with paid internships and work opportunities. Get more details at our Design Preparatory School.

DESIGN CAREER IN INDIA

India in the last 10 years have opened up more than 100 design colleges which offer undergraduate and postgraduate courses in design. NID/NIFT/ IIT being the prominent design schools offers a full-fledged design program ranging from general designs to specializations which covers the full spectrum in design Space. Securing admissions for these colleges entitles one towards clearing a set of examinations that are conducted by these Institutions. There are currently 50,000 students graduating in Design from these 100 colleges. An average pay package is in the range of 4.5-9 lakh For more details on the examination and eligibility do visit our web site www.madschool.in .

DESIGN: THE FUN FACTOR

Design discipline defies the pedagogic normalcy that is associated in the current form of learning. Design is all about doing. Getting your hands wet and dirty. Design is all about stretching your imagination and making things that reflect usability in a human being. Some of the norms associated with design include thinking out of the box, identifying problems, reimagining things. Yes, these levels of cognitive skills defy the current standards of the rot learning system that of mugging up and vomiting without having a chance to reflect upon what is being consumed in a real practical sense. Design education in its core DNA does at every stage balances this act in a graceful manner. Besides the fun factor, design is also an instrument of socialism. Its deep rootedness in creating things that have desirable impact in human beings does take factors of social cause into consideration. The significant contribution of NID in India’s design problems can be initiated as an example. The early kerosene stove during the fuel crises, the LPG gas burner for the masses, affordable tractor, Bicycle as a mass transportation solution, India’s first oxyginarator that was developed in supporting open heart surgery are some of the indigenous developments by this institute of national eminence.

DESIGN: DO I DESIGN?

Choosing design as your career should not be led only on commercial rewards. Several factors come into play while choosing this sector. This section is based on some of my experience that I had in interacting with aspirants. Some of the common traits that I have seen are:-

  • They have an opinion on everything ( self-opinionated )
  • They are constructive criticizers
  • Are obsessed over colours and fabrics while buying clothes and furniture’s
  • Becomes infatuated with paintings & photographs
  • They don’t talk. They do. A raw itch to get their hands dirty and create something new. More hands on.
  • Their hobbies extend beyond painting. It generally includes Outdoor sport, reading, listening to music, playing
  • instruments, art & theatre etc.
  • They see drawing , sketching as a hobby/ as a part of relaxation / one’s own self expression
  • They tend to express in Emotional terms/ emotional creatures
  • They are hell bound on establishing their individual identity/ signature in the society
  • They have a habit of tinkering with objects
  • Playing with toys/ creating are some of the traits
  • They can’t stand subjects that don’t interest them and easily get distracted. The result/ residue can be seen in school students behind their textbooks as doodles or small drawings.

So, if you have any of the above traits do email us: madschoolgroup@gmail.com to know more.

CONCLUSION

Design never retires. It always evolves and manifests in different forms. Human desire, needs, convenience, comfort are the catalyst which fuels the fire of design. The earliest form of design was the product which has paved way for several sub disciplines and contemporary disciplines. Some of the prominent disciplines include Fashion, Animation, and Transport & Automobiles etc. There are currently 1.2 billion people currently dependent on this profession world-wide. The requirement in India in the next 5 years is for 3 lakhs. VR, AR, MR would be the new realities in the coming future.

But I still keep figuring how much creativity is the Mind capable of???
