Wings To Fly by Deepak Sharma

Udayan Care's Deepak Sharma's book Wings to Fly

Social activist Deepak Sharma is all set to launch his debut book Wings to Fly on July 29. Published by Chennai-based Notion Press, the book covers his journey from humble beginnings to highest peaks of his corporate career and then to a completely new phase of his life where he devoted himself to the cause of caregiving.

Having worked in esteemed institutions like NTPC, BSES, ABB, Alstom Power and TATAs, Deepak Sharma discovered the true passion of his life after visiting Missionaries of Charity in Calcutta in 1996, the experience of which he describes as ‘heart-wrenching’ and ‘very touching’. This excursion anchored Deepak Sharma’s flight in a totally new direction and he gradually began immersing himself entirely in the act of ‘returning’ to the society.

Deepak Sharma’s book Wings to Fly covers the span of his childhood, adolescence, and adult years. The book takes the readers through the thick and thin of his life and develops a personal connect to the extraordinary story of an ordinary boy who finally got his wings to fly on being associated with the Non-Government Organization (NGO) Udayan Care.

Wings To Fly Author Deepak Sharma of Udyan Care
Deepak Sharma is hopeful that his story will inspire many empathetic minds who are willing to contribute meaningfully to the society and leave a promising impact. “Ultimately, we all live for happiness,” he says on the eve of the launch.

Headquartered in Delhi, Udayan Care functions under the able leadership of Dr. Kiran Modi and works towards the principles of empathy, education, and empowerment of the underprivileged strata of society. Deepak Sharma joined Udayan Care as a part time volunteer in 2009 and ardently devoted himself to the organization since 2013.

Deepak Sharma has left a remarkable imprint wherever he has travelled and whoever he has met. In fact, Wings to Fly is the result of the same. Greatly impressed by his enthusiastic spirits of giving back to the society via the noble cause of charity and caregiving, Deepak Sharma’s friends motivated him to tell the tale of his astonishing journey so far.

The book is all set to launch in New Delhi at the India International Centre, at 2 pm on July 29, 2022. Dr. Neerja Malik (Cancer Counsellor and Author), Anil Sardana (MD and CEO, Adani Transmission Limited) and Dr. Kiran Modi (Founder and Managing Trustee, Udayan Care) will be the Guests of Honour on this occasion.

Once released, Wings to Fly can be purchased from Amazon, Flipkart and Notion Press.

Domain Ad Campaign by G Caffe

Domain Name Search

Here’s a story of the journey of a dot campaign that I did for G Caffe.

Visual Communication

If content is king, let the visuals be its crown. What say?

The motive of this campaign is to imprint in the mind of viewers a visual element that will always bring them back to the target area of focus i.e.

The visual element chosen is a dot that recurs in each post in a different colour.

Apart from them, the themes which were created needed to be communicated visually.

The pictures chosen were not loud but minimal and focused on the right element which supplemented the copy.

Theme of the Posts

As you can see, the opening image creative above, is like the opening cover for the campaign, a hand reaching out to the dot which is called the ‘world wide net’, a reminder of ‘www’.

Beginning with trainers who are finding different platforms to go online with their skills and small businesses trying to sell their unique products, the domain is a platform which will promote and boost their growth and enable them to reach more clients.

The following three posts below, are completely focused on sports and fitness.

In fact, there has been a rise in awareness regarding the focus on fitness but it’s worth wondering as to how many are actually empowered enough to influence on their own platform!

With this were born the next three posts, laying emphasis on the keywords: ‘passion’, ‘inspire’, and ‘shine’ to promote sports fitness enthusiasts and fitness trainers or influencers.

Given the love for sports, it is always a good time to address the otherwise neglected and afflicted by pandemic fields.

So, what is in a dot, again?

It is a whole wide world we step in together. This is not a campaign to merely sell domains. It is to rise together and step into the online world.

G Caffe also provides wholesome consultation on excelling in the field you love, developing content, and field analysis, in addition to the consultation regarding the right domain name choice.

You must love what you do. G Caffe makes loving your business more convenient for you, dot by dot.

Owning a domain is empowering and empowers you. (Read more about the importance of owning a domain.)

Film Review: Bulbbul


The fairy tale with teeth, as the director Anvita Dutta herself calls Bulbbul. It is Anushka Sharma’s recent release on Netflix.

Bulbbul is an intoxicating yet strange piece of horror with eerie scenes which intrigue you. It is set in Bengal Presidency in 1881.

The portrayal of the patriarchal norms of the ancient Indian society brings goose bumps and scares you to the core.

A happy and inquisitive child grows to become a Thakurain and is mistreated by almost everyone.

The story begins with a typical Bengali wedding between two children Bulbbul (Tripti Dimri) and Satya (Avinash Tiwary), who grow up together with great affection between them or so she thought.

An innocent little girl grows up living in a dream world where together they create many fantasies, and later on live them too.

When a child bride grows up to be an enigmatic woman, harboring a painful past, you get Bulbbul the movie.

The story then twists and turns into various stages of their life where they finally grow up and face the realities of life.

After being separated for many years, the reunion brings about many questions.

The journey of an innocent girl into a woman is beautifully done and the issues are finely dealt with.

We also get to see major patriarchal rigidness in many dialogues, such as when Bulbbul and Satya start writing a story in a diary together and one day she is caught by her husband Bodo Thakur, he asks, “Kya hai ye?” She says, “Kuch niji (personal) kaam hai.”

On that he drops a bomb which goes like, ”Apne pati ke alawa aisa kya hai jo tumhara niji hai?” This shows the mentality of a whole generation.

Bulbbul - This 2020 film was released on 24th June on Netflix.
This 2020 film was released on 24th June on Netflix.

Bulbbul also captures the essence of life – where a woman of the house is often tormented by the other women around.

A young Bulbbul is often countered by the bahu of the house Binodini (Paoli Dam) who controls her every second.

She teaches a young Bulbbul how secrets are kept in families, where she tells her – Thakuron ke ghar byahi ho, ye sab to hona hi tha, aadat daal lo, aur chup rehna.

Rahul Bose is seen in a double role as Bodo Thakur and Mejo Thakur. Goes without saying he does full justice to his characters.

Directed by Anvita Dutta, Bulbbul stars Tripti Dimri, Avinash Tiwary, Paoli Dam, Rahul Bose and Parambrata Chattopadhyay. Genre: Period Pieces,Social Issue Dramas, Horror, Supernatural Movies.

Final Statement: With an enigmatic smile, Bulbbul conquers the Chudail (witch) in the fantasies of her childhood and her youth. It is strange that we live with so many demons around us who damage in every possible way and yet people are afraid of the Chudail. 

Director’s Note

anvita dutt bulbbul

It’s been a long time coming. The shadows we cast can come back to haunt us. The scariest demons live in the forest of our mind. Bulbbul will make a believer of you. – Anvita Dutt

Film Review: AXONE

Pockets of pun, sarcasm, laughter with all shades of humour and emotions make the latest release Axone (pronounced as Akhuni) on Netflix an interesting watch.

The movie Axone grows on you slowly and then catches speed. The film is a subtle blend of humour and emotion.

It is the story of a bunch of students from Northeast India and the difficulties they face in Delhi as they organize a simple wedding function on their own.

Two friends Upasana (Sayani Gupta), a Nepali girl, and Chanbi (Lin Laishram), a Manipuri girl, are organizing the wedding of their best friend Minum.

It spans over just one chaotic day in their life where all that could go wrong, goes wrong!

They fight every difficulty and overcome all, only to be tangled in the web of their own past.

To make the wedding authentic, they prepare a dish called Akhuni which is a Naga dish.

The only problem is that Akhuni is fermented soya bean with a pungent smell which travels at a great speed and that is where the problems begin.

The landlady (Dolly Alhuwalia) has many reservations about her tenants and creates a ruckus each time she sees them.

Some of the neighbours do help the kids eventually, who also include the son-in-law (Vinay Pathak) of the landlady who melts and helps them out.


The film reveals many aspects of cultural difficulties which these kids face from almost everyone.

In these events, they stick together as united. It portrays a great divide between the people from Northeast and the rest of Indians.

The great divide is visible in dialogues like, “Har baar koi naya banda dikhai padta hai… Waise bhi tum sab ki shaklein ek hi si hoti hain. Kaise pata chalega kaun rehta hai yahan.”

And look at this response: “Agar hum sab ki shaklein ek hi jaisi hoti hain, to tere ko kaise pata ki har baar doosra banda rehta hai idhar!”

Despite being a culturally united country we are divided greatly when it comes to our own kind. Are we racist, too?

People do show a lot of pride in belonging to their hometown and are often looked down upon by the others when they cluster up.

The film deals with such behaviour very prevalent in the typical neighbourhood, and also how it breaks many of the students.

This 2019 film was released on Netflix this June, having premiered at London and Mumbai Film Festivals.

Directed by Nicholas Kharkongor and produced by Saregama India – Yoodlee Films, the film stars Sayani Gupta, Vinay Pathak, Lin Laishram, Dolly Ahluwalia, Adil Hussain, Lanuakum Ao, Tenzin Dalha and Rohan Joshi. Genre: Hindi-Language Movies, Comedy, Dramas.

Final Statement: Sayani Gupta is a breeze all through and is a delight to watch. Would have loved to watch a bit more of Vinay Pathak and Adil Hussain though.

Director’s Note

Nicholas Kharkongor

I want to thank you for the support you have extended to Axone. I am overwhelmed and grateful. I’ve been living outside the North East for 25 years. And much of this time, I had wanted to make a film about the Northeastern experience of living in the big city. – Nicholas Kharkongor

Film Review: Yeh Ballet

Your dreams don’t know where you come from, says Yeh Ballet – a 2020 Netflix film.

Written and directed by Sooni Taraporevala, Yeh Ballet is based on the real-life stories of two dancers—Amiruddin Shah and Manish Chauhan—who dance their way to global fame with the help of their Israeli-American ballet teacher, Yehuda Maor.

Their characters are named Asif, Nishu and Saul Aron in the movie Yeh Ballet.

Yeh Ballet
Sooni Taraporevala had earlier made a virtual reality documentary with the same name and on the same theme in 2018.

The film is a fictionalised take on the struggles of the two ballet dancers played by Achintya Bose and Manish Chauhan.

English actor Julian Sands plays their teacher, Saul Aron, and Mekhola Bose and Sasha Shetty play the strong and independent characters of Asha and Neena.

They’re both extremely talented dancers but their stories remain a mystery to the audience.

Interesting things about Yeh Ballet

  • Manish Chauhan plays himself in the movie.
  • Manish, Aamir and Achintya have all been associated with Ashley Lobo’s The Danceworx Studio in Mumbai, the place where their talents were discovered.

What makes Yeh Ballet different

Unlike most of the recent Bollywood movies based on dance, Yeh Ballet isn’t jargoned with unnecessary glamour and drama.

It makes the audience feel the beats that throb and thrive in slums.

It portrays the struggles of the male ballet dancers in a society drenched in prejudices but doesn’t limit it to just that.

The film highlights the challenges that underprivileged artists face with respect to limitations of language, resources and support from families.

It also brings to light the otherwise invisible struggles of an artist’s feeling of non-belongingness to a particular space and the flush of emotions that seep in—jealousy, sympathy, self-criticism—along with the other more visible forms of dominating biases of class, caste, gender and religion.

The two ballet boys dance their way out through all these struggles and fly away abroad for their further training.

Audience Wanted More

A little more build-up around the process of the boys’ families changing their minds about their desire to dance, would have made the sudden transition seem smoother.

Yeh Ballet
Two gifted dancers: Achintya Bose and Manish Chauhan.

The Israeli-American ballet master puts in his sweat and blood to carve out the best in the boys, but the audience don’t get to see the master performing a single step throughout the 117 minutes of the film.

Final Statement: Yeh Ballet reassures hope but also reminds us that nothing comes easy. The end of the film is just another beginning of the boys’ lives.

Updated With Director’s Note

Sooni Taraporevala

Thanks so much! Very happy you enjoyed Yeh Ballet & many thanks for the wonderful review. (Also many ballet teachers especially after they reach a certain age don’t dance or demonstrate themselves.) – Sooni Taraporevala

Film Review: The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society

The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society poster

This movie – The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society – is intimate, emotional and romantic.

It so happens that author Juliet Ashton receives a letter from an island farmer inviting her to attend his literary society. What Juliet discovers on the Guernsey island leads to her staying much longer than planned.

The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Society is a 2018 period drama that portrays the war troubled London in 1946, where Juliet – played by Lily James makes her way to Guernsey, after she receives a letter from the mysteriously handsome pig farmer Dawsey, played by Michiel Huisman.

The events that follow turn her life upside down and also brings her close to a book loving family where everyone is hiding pain from their past.

Life adapts to the circumstances as we face them and so does she. New friends and new stories give Juliet a purpose in life and also open new avenues.

The odd village charm fills the heart of immaculate Juliet and she struggles to make a decision.

The film paints a vivid portrait of those times and the love story glides delightfully, but things get out of control when her fiancé turns up on the island to look for her.

Do you suppose it’s possible for us to already belong to someone before we’ve met them? If so, I belong to you, or you to me. Or me simply to the spirit I found among you on Guernsey. That is as good a definition of family as any I know.”

– Juliet in The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Society

As you watch the movie on Netflix, it would be interesting journey to find why a roast pig is kept as a secret!

Then, a ‘potato peel pie’ and a ‘book club’ will keep you wondering how these three are connected!

The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society is a charming old-fashioned romance and indeed a delightful watch if you are a fan of period dramas.

During the World War II, a group of four people create a book club one night. Guernsey, a small island on the English Channel which was then occupied by the Germans, hosts this book club run by some eccentrics who make a habit of reading and enjoying the book club or so it seems.

Film Review: The Lift Boy

The Lift Boy, Movie, Netflix, Review, Audience, Engineering, Examination Friendships, Mumbai, Jonathan Augustin, Ashish Verma, Moin Khan, Nyla Masood

Even a small place like a lift carries a lot of memories and stories. Add to this a lollypop, and you get The Lift Boy.

When a lazy young man replaces his father as the elevator operator of a posh residential complex, what he sees as menial work soon takes on new meaning.

A look at some audience reviews 

An intense story delivered from heart, a presentation so honest. What a beautiful movie. I wish more meaningful movies like this would be made.

A low budget. A simple and inexperienced cast. Limited venues for the shoot. But a good story and tale told well.

Where does the movie take you to

The Lift Boy is the story of a lazy boy failing in engineering examinations. He is forced to take up the job of a lift man when his father suddenly suffers a stroke, while operating the lift.

The Lift Boy, Movie, Netflix, Review, Audience, Engineering, Examination Friendships, Mumbai, Jonathan Augustin, Ashish Verma, Moin Khan, Nyla Masood

The movie breaks many stereotypes – the most important being unusual friendships.

While watching the movie, being streamed on Netflix, you will (might/may) keep on thinking – Why am I seeing this?

But, bet you would not switch to next. The Lift Boy keeps you hooked, more so because you know it is not a long movie with songs or unnecessary extension.

Positivity and Optimism

The Lift Boy, released in January 2019, revolves around a posh building in Mumbai. It is quite interesting to learn that it suddenly found its way through Netflix, now.

Let us know if you start talking in English once you are through with The Lift Boy wherein the protagonist is raised in a chawl and educated in a convent.

Director: Jonathan Augustin, Writers: Jonathan Augustin, Ashish P. Verma (Hindi dialogue), Stars: Moin Khan, Nyla Masood, Saagar Kale, Aneesha Shah, Neha Bam, Damian Alexander D’Souza. Genres: Drama, Independent Movies.

The Lift Boy, Movie, Netflix, Review, Audience, Engineering, Examination Friendships, Mumbai, Jonathan Augustin, Ashish Verma, Moin Khan, Nyla Masood

Director’s Note

“The Lift Boy is inspired by life in Mumbai and an encounter of mine with a liftboy in the city on 4th March 2015. This slice of life, feel good story metaphorically expresses the fact that there is a lift boy in each one of us and life is like a Lift, sometimes it takes us up and sometimes it takes us down depending on the buttons we press aka choices we make. The film celebrates dignity of labour, a strong universal father-son relationship and strives to show the world an aspirational and inspirational India (Panache in Poverty). Come, celebrate life and lift your spirits with THE LIFT BOY.”

After storm there is a rainbow. After sunset there is sunrise. Likewise there is always spring after winter.

So, how are you all gearing up for the liberation after the lockdown? What is the worst skin problem which got aggravated during this lockdown?

A tiny pimple, a pigmentation spot or a bunch of hair fall would mean so much more to people who have otherwise been very cautious of their skincare.

Hair Care during lockdown

Hair growth is a major concern for many, especially the ones who regularly get threading and waxing done. It is important to understand that hair growth is a natural process and you are not alone in this. In a rush, it is advised not to experiment with alternative hair removal ideas without an expert’s supervision.

And if you are concerned about taking care of your hair, oil preferences, and colouring, hear this podcast which tells you to explore the opportunity to apply hair oil especially on hair that have gone through chemical treatments like hair colour, straightening or smoothening.

Skin Care during lockdown

During the lockdown, the skin has had its time to heal. It has been exposed to a break that one would have otherwise not taken.

Therefore, it is important to understand your limitations during lockdown, and do your bit by keeping your skin clean and hydrated.

Cleanse your skin regularly, especially the areas with excess hair growth. Remember, avoiding that may lead to bacterial infections and cause serious problems later.

Start moisturizing your skin and give it the care it deserves. Switch to a healthier lifestyle and diet plan, and drink ample water.

Utilize the last days of lockdown to cleanse your pallet and pamper your skin. Let’s bring out the confident you, by hearing this podcast for the tips to keep your skin glowing.

Lip Care during lockdown

In this podcast, dermatologist Dr. Rashmi Sharma shares quick tips for lip care. She tells you how ghee, coconut oil and sugar can be used to rejuvenate our lips.

We are still left up with more days of lockdown. How about sticking to your day and night care regime in a stricter manner! And yes, don’t forget your UV guard. You must continue your daily anti-ageing cream as well, says Dr. Rashmi Sharma.

Facebook’s More Together Campaign in India

Facebook App More Together

Find inspiration and bring your ideas to life. Decorate the old with the threads of the new. No matter what you want to do, the world on Facebook can help you do it.

This is the new tone social media giant Facebook is setting up at a time when people are coming together despite staying apart and maintaining safer distances.

True, the more you open up to the world, the more the world opens up to you.

Facebook started off as a social networking site where one could connect to the people all around the world.

There were no boundaries on Facebook and it brought us together. However, with time, it lost its basic role to connect people.

People started using Facebook as a platform for hate mongering and virtual abuse.

Facebook’s new advertisement is an attempt to revive the basic message of this platform, as it says – MORE TOGETHER.

This is the first such campaign launched by Facebook in India.

Facebook’s consumer marketing push

When a group of friends comes across a picture of a denim and a sari coupled together, they use all their connections to develop this idea into a full-fledged business.

The setting of this advertisement is also significant as it is set in a remote hilly area.

The background score is a Nepali song which further adds to the humble settings of this advertisement.

The description on this ad reads, “No matter what you want to do, the world on Facebook can help you do it.”

It reminds us that Facebook is a platform which inspires people to do new things and can help fulfil these new ideas through vast social networking.

For a change, Facebook has closed commenting on its new ad posted on its YouTube account. Check out yourself to find that comments are turned off.

The She we need to See

She webseries

She is aired at a time when there’s a lot of skepticism regarding Netflix content, especially from mainstream Indian entertainment industry.

Director Imtiaz Ali has also been surrounded with criticism regarding mishandling of female characters in all his recent ventures. Will then this web series – She – make any difference?

She is a recent Netflix web series, divided in seven episodes, co-written by Imtiaz Ali and Divya Johry, and directed by Arif Ali and Avinash Das.

Story of a Marathi woman constable’s struggles in patriarchal set up

The protagonist – Bhumika Pardeshi a.k.a. Bhumi (played by Aaditi Pohankar), has a broken marriage, and she solely supports her mother and sister living in a suburban one-room house.

Her life begins to change as she is picked to lead an undercover police operation against drug mafia.

While She traces the otherwise subdued Bhumi’s journey to sexual awakening and empowerment, film critics fault the storyline.

Their discomfort seems to be the objectified portrayal of a woman via male gaze, while some also criticize She for overt sexualization.

What does She deliver in 7 small episodes

She brings to audience the discomfort that Bhumi goes through every day – from being judged for her looks to puncturing her husband’s desire sorties, from being looked down for her timidity, to letting insensitive remarks and unconsolidated male gaze pierce through her body.

While reviewers, such as Quint’s RJ Stutee, complain about Bhumi’s hesitancy and easy subjugation before others, no one traces reasons for her casual submissions.

Why can’t they notice Bhumi’s sexual abuse at a younger age, which scars her entire idea of sexual pleasure?

Being undercover, Bhumi accidently feels sexually aroused for a while, which moment she gradually begins to celebrate with a sense of pride, ability and empowerment.

Amidst many inappropriate reviews, NDTV forwards the weakest of the arguments, and the least the news organization could do was avoid entertaining a male to decide for women.

NDTV’s reviewer Saibal Chatterjee should have been sensitive enough to refer to the 29-year-old independent protagonist as a ‘woman’ and not ‘girl’.

Another review by John Serba on (Stream It Or Skip It: ‘She’ on Netflix, an Indian Drama About a Female Cop Posing as a Prostitute) views Bhumi’s transition as ‘sexually aggressive’, ‘antithetical’ and ‘regressive’.

Yelling ‘yuck’ multiple times in his review, Serba only highlights the privileged position he occupies in our society.

Most reviews praise Sasya’s character (played by Vijay Varma), and even the averagely written and performed character of Jason Fernandes (played by Vishwas Kini), but they foreshadow Bhumi’s sister, Rupa (played by Shivangi Rangole) who needs appraisal for being carefree, bold and unapologetic.

What is however disappointing about the web series is that even when Bhumi holds the maximum screen presence, the audience gets to know very little about her.

In fact, every information that one learns about Bhumi throughout the series is repeated in the final two episodes only.

As Swetha Ramakrishnan points out in her Firstpost review, giving more screen time ‘in building (Bhumi’s) aptitude as an agent’ and her ‘relationship with sex and sexuality’ could have helped to elate the series from what has been otherwise reduced to an erotic thriller.

Final Word on She

Why should a woman not prefer a man who promises to not hurt her, over the ones who do? What is really so bothering about womxn making choices for themselves!

As She web series wraps, Bhumi offers herself to the elusive don, to save her life. What must not go unnoticed is the way she looks at herself in the mirror, enjoying sexual pleasure and most importantly enjoying herself. That’s She for you.

Dr. Mili: Homeopathy has role in cancer treatment

Dr Mili Siddiqui of Advanced Homeopathy clinic in Allahabad Prayagraj

Homeopathy has a role in cancer which needs to be defined more precisely. The scope of Homeopathy for cancer management varies depending on the type of cancer, stage of cancer and the general health of the patient.

As far as benign growth is concerned, homeopathy can work very well in cancer treatment, says Dr. Mili Siddiqui of Advanced Homeopathy Clinic, Allahabad.

The growth regresses, however, is a gradual process. e.g. uterine fibroids, breast tumors give excellent results with homeopathic medicines.

Cancer treatment via HomeopathyIn case of malignant growths, the spread is faster and life-threatening. Here, homeopathy works very well in the initial stages of the disease.

In the advance stage of cancer, homeopathy can provide relief to the patient according to the symptoms.

How homeopathy can help cancer patients

One of the most distressing complaints associated with some types of cancer is the agonizing pain. But Dr. Mili says that in treating people coping with cancer, homeopathic physicians often aim to stimulate immunity, lessen pain, and improve energy, and overall well-being.

Conventional treatment options for cancer (chemotherapy, radiotherapy, etc) are associated with distressing side effects and homeopathy can play a definitive role in counter these side effects.

The diagnosis of cancer often leaves the patient with a sense of depression, anxiety, and fear. The treatment may induce additional irritability, impatience and mood fluctuations.

Homeopathy can influence the psyche of the patient and help him to deal with these emotions in a better way.
