He was a normal 13 year old kid. Studied in one of the good schools in town. Fortunately it wasclose enough to home.

So close that not only did he go to and return by cycle, he used to go home for lunch and make it back in time too.

But one day, fate had something terrible in
store for him.

He was struck by a speeding vehicle and suffered a head injury.

He was unconscious for approx 3 weeks and it was touch and go.

By God’s grace, he made it though and recovered from the accident.

He was back in school and over the course of next few months
was able to get back into the swing of things without losing an academic year.

The school was accommodating in terms of time allocated to him for the exams so he was able to complete his studies without any issues.

But trouble came as he was approaching his SSC 10th standard

1990: I was hospitalized with severe upper & lower back pain. Pain was so severe that I was bed-bound. It used to take 30 min to get down from bed & enter the washroom (no family member could attend on me).
I had just completed my first yr MBBS.
2. Doctors had started 4 different types of pain-killers, which were still ineffective in relieving my pain. To make matters worse, no definite diagnosis had been made. A senior Orthopedic surgeon was consulted to explore the option of giving steroid injection in affected joints.
3. He advised to wait for another two days for pain-relief to begin (15 days had passed without pain relief). Failing that, he would proceed with injections. As per his expectations, pain relief started on day 17.
In addition, HLA B27 returned positive confirming the diagnosis.

Digital Spies:

In the digital age, privacy is a challenge,
Our personal data is at risk of theft,
Protecting it requires more than a talisman.

Our online lives are a digital talisman,
Hackers and cybercriminals take the plunge,
In the digital age, privacy is a challenge. Image
We are always at risk, a digital malfunction,
Leaves us open to scams and identity theft,
Protecting it requires more than a talisman.

We need to create an environment of caution,
And implement measures that give us a breath,
In the digital age, privacy is a challenge.
We must protect our data, a digital orphan,
And safeguard our personal assets from theft,
Protecting it requires more than a talisman.

I also remember creating a cool Matte Painting setup for Terminator Genisys (2015) for the Golden Gate sequence and the bus stunt (real)
The environment for the entire sequence is made of bubbles (matte painting spheres) from different positions on the bridge #VFX #Story #Thread
We shot the real 360 environment from on side of the bridge to the other one, every 100m or so, and created multiple similar painting from every position to let the compositor picking the one for his shot.
We also had specific ones for long lenses camera, done by @SullyRichard
They really made the stunt tho, throwing a bus in the air. But as you can see, we had to add the bridge and the surrounding environment, that was really cool to do.
watch the behind the scenes here:

This shot from Bourne Ultimatum (2007) is still one of my favorite MattePainting.
The jump is real, but we’ve extended the facade, created the interior of the flat, put a CG window, CG glass and added CG shutters.
This shot was a great team work from 3D, FX and DMP.
#vfx #story
A stunt man jumped through an opened window, followed by a camera on a wire.
We just added a closed window which shatters, built what's inside the room, extended the wall and added the shutters.

That is the original plate

Sorry for the broken link
Here it is, you'll see the whole preparation and stunt.

Verbreitung und Besitz von Kinderpornografie nehmen seit Jahren stark zu – besonders im Internet. Ermittlern sind regelmäßig die Hände gebunden. Warum? Eine Recherche von @SabinaWolf (BR #Kontrovers). #Thread🧵 (1/20)

I had an amazing opportunity in meeting Louise Hay a few years ago. 1/

ग्रीक इतिहास में एक नाम है प्रोक्रुस्टीस। मान्यता यह है कि जब भी कोई यात्री उसके क्षेत्र से निकलता तो वह उसे अपने महल में ले जाता और बेहतरीन ख़ातिरदारी करता। शाम होने पर यात्री को प्रोक्रुस्टीस के घर ही सोना होता जो ख़ातिरदारी की अनिवार्य शर्त थी। 1/n
पेंच यह था कि प्रोक्रुस्टीस के इस बेड में यात्री को पूरी तरह फिट आना होता था। ऐसा ना होने पर प्रोक्रुस्टीस यात्री को ज़बरदस्ती बेड के साइज़ का बनाया करता था। जो यात्री लंबा होता था उसके पैर काट दिये जाते और जो यात्री छोटा होता उसके शरीर को खींच कर बेड जितना लंबा कर दिया जाता।2/n
यह भी कहा जाता है कि प्रोक्रुस्टीस के पास दो बेड थे, एक लंबा और एक छोटा। वह लंबे यात्री को छोटे बेड पर लिटाता और छोटे यात्री को लंबे बेड पर। इस प्रकार कोई भी यात्री सुबह बचकर वापस नहीं जाता था।

A #Story: or #History #Assam

The little six year old, broke herself off from brutal arms of the men who did not look like any she had ever seen. 'I am a princess. Bow down you rude men.' She shouted. But all she could get in response was men with strange look in their eyes.
She had seen affection in eyes of the men, she had seen anger in the eyes of her father, She had seen reverence in the eyes of the men. but these men, with those blood-red, angry eyes, looked at her in a different way, in a way she could not understand. /2
Then there was a man who looked similar to them, he directed these cruel men to step back, and when he spoke, his words offered some safety but no compassion, no affection, no reverence.
'She is for the royal harem. Let her be. Will take time to get used to.' She looked around.

Creativity is the MOST important skill you can have.

If you were about to click away because you don’t vibe with the word creativity, hold up.

People THINK they aren’t creative, but they’re wrong. We all have it in us.

Here’s how to be more creative…
But first I want to start with a story, about a guy named Steve Jobs. You may have heard of him…

Returning to Apple after Pixar, Jobs knew that talking about tech features wasn’t the way to sell computers. That’s why his first computer, Lisa, failed so badly.

To succeed…
Apple had to come up with a totally new marketing strategy.

So Jobs hired a team that would do exactly that. They launched the #thinkdifferent campaign.

Jobs said yes to doing the opposite of what every other tech company was doing.

And it saved the company

"One of the ideas we had with #InterPlanetary was, 'What would it take to make science hedonistic? And instead of telling people to do it, you'd have to tell people to STOP doing it?"

David Krakauer: "Do you have a favorite model or metaphor for #time?"

@JamesGleick: "You've already mentioned a river; that's everybody's favorite. Borges said time is a tiger. People talk about it as a thread. We ONLY talk about time in metaphors." Image

My father was also interested in #stocks. When I was a young child, he and his friends would drink in the evening & discuss about the #Stockmarket. I would listen to them and one day I asked him why do these prices fluctuate. (2/10)
He told me to check if there is a news item on Gwalior Rayon in the newspaper, and if there was Gwalior Rayon’s price would fluctuate the next day.

Now that the #MRoots2022 #genealogy #familyhistory #history #storytelling #conference is behind us, I wanted to share some lessons and thoughts I had as chair for this new type of learning experience. 🧵
The future of #genealogy #familyhistory #education is happening NOW for things you want to see and have mainstream in 3-5+ years. There’s no room for waiting. There’s no room for wishful thinking of before 2020. It’s embrace change. Be the change maker. Or fold.
Stop stereotyping people into boxes of how you expect they’ll respond. Age. Experience. Heritage. Race. Dive in and discover together. Invest in new learning styles. Invest in rising/emerging professionals. Push #genealogy learning spaces to be learner inclusive.
