Shilpa Dhamija’s article in IBNLive was titled: “Write blogs, earn up to Rs 1 lakh”.
No doubt, Eklavya & Team from WatBlog are doing a great job covering the Internet Advertising and Technology scene in India. However Shilpa’s article would be interpreted by a newbie as an easy way of making fast money. Well, please, please don’t be under this impression. For every blogger who makes 1 lakh per month, there are more than 1000 bloggers who make nothing. [me included]
I just wanted to that straight.
Back to BlogCamp Pune on 16th June. Started off with no WiFi , but Good T-Shirts!
So far, the best run down blog coverage, I could find was that by Lokesh Sapre. I would request you to read his post here.
The threads that i sat through were of Purple Nova, Fropper & SMS Gupshup. Presentation on flaming by Melody was appreciated by everyone. A very enthu guy Ashish went about interviewing everyone who participated, I felt that was very ‘sweet’, Thank You Ashish !
Umesh from Fropper.com announced in his presentation of EzBlogs that Fropper has an exclusive tie-up with Google for a “One Click installation” of Google Adsense to EzBlogs. Well, I am looking forward for that, as this is an easy way for people to skip all the Google Adsense code configuration. I am sure this would be a hit.
At 5:30 PM, we all assembled in the auditorium & Tarun & Parag sought feedback from everyone.
One of the things which everyone agreed was that at the next BlogCamp in Pune, there would be seperate threads for commercial [sponsors] & unsponsored ones.
Overall, this is a good start, got attention of the media & I am sure several people would consider to start blogging.
Looking forward to BarCamp Pune3
IBNlive ‘s Video coverage about the BlogCamp Pune below:
I am neither a hindi movie buff nor a hindi movie critic, in fact i hardly watch any hindi movies. The last one I watched was Lage Raho Munna Bhai an year ago, which means, I watched this hindi movie today after an year or so!
Well, I would not call Jhoom Barabar a movie as such, it is more of a Music Video with comedy in between, or a colorful expression on film, something artistic, with rich colors & hip sound.
I say this because, of a typical hindi movie, what is expected is melodrama, violence, guns, evil villain [ villan ], then ‘Maa’, relatives, extended joint family stuff, etc. None of that in this fast paced musical. NRIs from UK, Europe & US would like this Jhum film. However, I don’t think that the average Indian ‘movie goer’ from towns could relate to the French or the Southall ‘ehstyle hinglish’. From the same director, ‘Bunti Aur Babli‘ was a hit were because people from “Chote Chote Shehero Se”, could relate to the film, however, that is missing here. maybe it’s made to earn foreign exchange only
Having said that, the director has done a great job, by giving vent to his creativity & style. It is more of his way of expressing things which are very cool & hip today. It’s like saying “Balls to the box-office, I wanna do what I want to”, ie., he has not stuck to a formula or recipe for a hit movie. Who knows, could this be a super hit?? Logic says, it’s unlikely, however, things do not happen as you would normal expect them to be…right!!??
Here are some videos from YouTube: Jhoom Barabar Jhoom Videos
Next is the video of the Making of “Kiss of Love” song, shot at the Tower of London.
This one is a short clip on the making of the song JHOOM on a London railway station.
Then is Making of the song “Ticket to Hollywood” prdominently shot in Paris & London.
Here is the trailer of the song Jhoom Barbar Jhoom
FYI > You can buy ie, download the songs of JBJ online from the Yash Raj Film’s official website here. However it not for Indians residing in India, so basically, rest of the world, apart from India. If you have watched JBJ, please let me know what you think about JBJ The movie.
Anyways, I did enjoy the film & am gonna hit the sack, as in few hours time, I will be attending BlogCamp Pune , see previous post.
Bloggers from Pune are in store for a treat.
After the success of BlogCamp in Chennai last year, we have BlogCamp in Pune on 16th June 2007. Venue is Symbiosis Center for IT (SCIT), Plot 15 Hinjewadi IT Park, Pune. Timing is from 8:30am to 5:00pm
