Navratri Digital Storytelling

Navratri (Hindi: नवरात्री Gujarati: નવરાત્રી Oriya: ନର୍ଵାର୍ତୀ Bengali: নবরাত্রি Kannada: ನವರಾತ್ರಿ Assamese: নৱৰাত্রি Marathi: नवरात्री Punjabi: ਨਰਾਤੇ Kashmiri: نَورات / नवरात Telugu: నవరాత్రీ Tamil: நவராத்திரி Malayalam: നവരാത്രി) is a festival dedicated to the worship of the Hindu deity Durga.Navratri means Nav means nine and ratri means night. This is a big hindu festival of India.

 

“Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam” is a quote in Sanskrit – the whole world is our family. So we think the whole world is our Kutum, Kutum means Family. We dance and we pray this time of the year, and we invite everyone to come join us because we believe everyone living in the world is part of our big family. I want to share my gif in a fun and colorful way. I will also be sharing my first gif. Yahhh finally I made few. In Instragram we see alot of video frames with pic, so I was thinking is that a GIF or a Video or can we make gif from it? So I looked into it, and Im sharing here gif I made so NO copyright issues. Every one should say understand the copyright, there is this issue of music you use when you load a Youtube video. Some times its a tricky but its someones IDEA so they should get credit for it. We couldn’t like our work to be stolen also.

So the Emotion between this gif is on top half of the GIF is walking into some place having no idea who will you meet and you meet the love of your life in the first sight. Bottom half it shows, how the guy tries to win her and she tries hard to get until he smiles and falls in love. LOL Just wanted to share a Bollywood fantasy. But in real life as you can see in the video all way in the end of this blog. Im dancing with my friends and having a good time, this is the time we fast and pray and enjoy the time with our friends and family, and bring joy and color to our life since its fall, soon it will be cold. The Dance in the gif is called Garba. Finding Love and staying in love

 I finally made a gif, I didn’t give up and kept looking. Then I came across this app named #PicPlayPost. In PicPlayPost you can came video frame(meaning 1 or more video in one frame), you can add pic and video together, last but not least you can create GIF. My gif is not HD because I was just playing around with it and i create it. In future it will be in HD.

 The process was very easy, I opened the app, choice the frame for 2 video you can add more or just work with one. Then I added the video or videos (you need to allow the app to access the videos in your device) and click share you will see it says GIF under twitter, when you want to email this or save it your phone when you click it or touch it it will give you option to save as GIF or Video . You dont need twitter account for this app to work. Then it saves the gif in  your device even in IPHONE. I was just playing with my iphone and I made it. I was so happy. Just in 1-2-3 you will have your gif. I hope to make more and better gif. Its my first, do give it a try and let me know. I might just put a video of how to use this app. Here is the video and gif of same pic and video.

This is the gif and left one is the video.gif_garba[jwplayer mediaid=”1814″]

World Wide Web Identity

As a Information System Management major, I have seen my professors having there own website. It’s really is awesome that we can do that and someone sitting in thousand or all the away around the world they can find us just by our domain identity. So I want my domain name to be my first initial and my last name together. As I move forward in life, I would like to use this as a professional site. But that was taken. I couldn’t sign up. Hope things will get better soon.

Endless Media Run

We have all this social media, that is suppose to connect us keep us closer.We are checking out notification every second, what is the rush. What are we running after. But I feel like all this is just separating us from everything. I see people text all day but when they sitting next to each other they have nothing to talk about. I have used it all, but I think can there be too much technology? Is it good or bad? I feel technology, social media killed romance. Will WATSON kill our class room? Watson is a supercomputer that will be our new teacher or tutor in future. Hmmm I will miss the human in the classroom.

No body writes hand written letters anymore. Don’t get me wrong I do love it the internet computer world. But where is the limit. People stacking you, stealing pics, hack into personal data. It was shocking to see all those who matter in Hollywood there iCloud was hacked and all there privet pic was stolen. It’s sad to see the only way people connect is over social media, text, why not pick up the phone and call. Recently Facebook is trying to force everyone load there messenger app. I didn’t wanted another app to take my phone space so i delete both. I have books for this semester is my phone, since I deleted Facebook I feel like I have more time. I look around and communicate with people more. Some people have thousand friends in Facebook but Zero in real life, they life in there imaginary world. They think they found happiness. Its sad to see kids bullying online. So many people die because of online bully. I remember this guy jumped of bridge because his roommate video tape him with this boyfriend. Use this media to for good, and peace.

But I know that using Skype and video chatting with someone on the other end of this world is great feeling. Where do we draw a line, put down the cellphone, that ipad, and facebook, all other social media and enjoy the moment. Be careful and don’t loose your job like this Lady.
