Making a Claymation

Remember “Pingu” and “Shaun the Sheep”? Growing up, I loved these! Why I’m talking about them is because both these shows are claymations. Claymations are stopmotions made with clay. They have this 3 dimensional aspect to them that can’t be achieved through normal animation. ‘Shaun the Sheep’ Credit: awn.com‘Pingu’ Credit: Pingu.net I decided to make... Continue Reading →

2020 wrapped: Year in Review

I read this joke somewhere. 2020 was a unique year because it had 29 days in February, 53 Wednesdays, and 6 months in April. And if that isn't true I don't know what is. Especially the last few months, from August, passed in a blur. Where did the time go? I was just moping around... Continue Reading →

Why You should Craft and be Terrible at It

I was four when I made my first discernible clay piece. It was a gift for my parents' anniversary. My parents were so proud of me when I made it, though when I look back at it now I suspect that was out of nicety rather than appreciation.  It’s been ten years since then and... Continue Reading →

Why Exams should be held amid COVID-19

This was an op-ed I wrote for my writing community. I don't agree with this, but wanted to write it to see if I could make a persuasive point. The COVID-19 Pandemic has disrupted our lives. In recent times many debate whether or not exams should take place. For us to come out of this... Continue Reading →

Prof. Bernhard Pfahringer on Data Science and AI

Back in December, I took some interviews of professors and data science experts who came to a convention in Amity university. This was my first ever interview and it lasted well over 40 minutes. Kudos to the editor for condensing and prioritising huge blocks of text into this neat article. Here is a link to... Continue Reading →

Book Review: The Three Adventurers at Fungalore

'The Three Adventurers at Fungalore' is an awesome page-turner written by 9-year-old Kavya Kompella. Kavya has let her imagination run wild in the lockdown and produced a great work of art. This book is also illustrated by her. These illustrations are very cute and far better than anything I could ever draw. Moving on to... Continue Reading →

Trying Realistic Sculpting

Why are dragons easier to make than humans? I've made tons of dragons and mythical creatures such as these over the past two years.   But, I have never tried proper realistic sculpting. I wanted to try working in proportions and follow proper sculpting techniques so that the model looks like a real human. I... Continue Reading →

Voldemort and the Philosopher’s Stone

  I have wondered how the Harry Potter series would have been if they were narrated from Voldemort's point of view. In lockdown, I finally wrote this piece. This is the first face-off between Harry and Quirrell from the end of the first book. He was here. The mere infant who had escaped the killing... Continue Reading →

Our World in 2 years

This is an article that I wrote for an exercise in the excellent writing workshop by Amit Varma. If lockdown existed till the July of 2022 (which I hope does not), this is how the world, as per my imagination, would be. Dear Diary, Day 800 in lockdown. Or was it 900? Meh, I've lost...

Covid-19 – How The Pandemic Could Change Education

My article was recently published in the school newspaper. Here is the text version: Our World is going through a rather disconcerting time right now, and while we may be  uneasy about the situation, the experience gained by us could prove to be very valuable for the future. All of us have been at home... Continue Reading →
