Why this blog?

The nascent and fresh minds of students are so creatively inclined that they have the ability to bring into being a universe of their own. They are little tyros who would, with time, unfold into verves, momentum or sensations of various creative dimensions. A chalk sculptor, a clay artist, an amateur painter of Madhubani, Warli, a dabbler of still life, a budding poet, a tenderfoot writer or a fledgling lyricist – one gets all varieties of creatively-aligned students covered in a seemingly dilettantish peel. We at Shishukunj aspire to provide a humble platform to all such potentials to smatter around and mature into the perfection that they are seeking to epitomize or become! This blog is thus an endeavor that would allow all Shishyans to just play around with their latent artistic caliber and enjoy the bliss of a “BRAVO” from known and unknown quarters.

Movie Review - Whiplash

Avadhi Dass, Class XIIStudent Editor, 2017-18

This is by far the most encouraging movie I have ever seen. It exudes determination and in a very novel manner, conveys the importance of hard work. It rightly depicts that nothing is unachievable if there is a fire inside you. If you are driven by passion, no road/mountain is insurmountable. 
The story revolves around a twenty-something man named Andrew Neiman (Miles Tiller), who enrolls in a music conservatory to fulfil his dream of becoming an ace drummer (one like Buddy Rich). The story depicts his relation with his mentor/instructor Terence Fletcher (JK Simmons) who is extremely disciplined and strict in conduct and makes his studio work really hard and long. He is frank, sometimes abusively so, and leaves no space for mistakes. He is extreme and personifies the 'All or Nothing' concept.
Terence is the epitome of perfection in the film whereas Tiller as Andrew shows great purpose and truly absorbs himself in the character.
The Jazz symphonies in the film add to its dynamism. The movie is a must watch for people who like Jazz and live performances and enjoy the thrill of uncertainty.
Holding true to its name, the movie has some gripping twists and sharp turns indeed! 
Whiplash holds many surprises, it is compelling yet simplistic and is bound to keep you stuck to your seats. It’s a must watch for anyone passionate about anything, of any age, anywhere around the world.
