MUMBAI – MAHARASHTRA – INDIA 30 OCTOBER , 2013 06.00 P.M.
As I write this blog , I remember and would like to remind all my readers that I have been training actors since 1990 . In such a long journey , I took several different paths , passed through various difficult routes . I achieved many milestones . I faced some disappointments . I missed few points here & there . But overall it was a satisfying journey indeed .
My job took me , apart from Mumbai , to Pune , Bengaluru and Nashik . It took me to the sets of several big and important films . From Bollywood to Hollywood , I worked with the best of actors and directors . In the process I got enriched and got their respect and love also .
As I complete one more year of my acting training career , I posted few thoughts regarding VIDUR Acting Institute , which is known as VIDUR’S KREATING CHARAKTERS on the timeline of my facebook . Today I am posting all of them together in this blog so that one could find it easily and read it . I tried to follow a pattern and posting was done as per the progression of my thoughts .
1 – [ 21 September 2012 – 21 September 2013 ]
एक बरस बीत गया A year of insult ended . A year of slander gone .
3 – [ 21 September 2012 – 21 September 2013 ]
4 – [ 21 September 2012 – 21 September 2013 ]
5 – [ 21 September 2012 – 21 September 2013 ]
6 – [ 21 September 2012 – 21 September 2013 ]
8 – [ 21 September 2012 – 21 September 2013 ]
नहीं आँख जिनकी मिलाने की हिम्मत ; मेरे पीठ पीछे वही बोलते हैं ॥
9 – [ 21 September 2012 – 21 September 2013 ]
एक बरस बीत गया A saga of uninterrupted 23 years reaches a new milestone .
यह उथल पुथल उत्ताल लहर , पथ से न डिगाने पायेगी ;
पतवार चलाते जायेंगे , मंज़िल आएगी आएगी ॥
10 – [ 21 September 2012 – 21 September 2013 ]
एक बरस बीत गया The voyage passed through Tumultuous Tempest . Blinding Blizzard . Windy Windstorm .
कहो नाख़ुदा से कि लंगर उठा दे ; मैं तूफाँ की जिद देखना चाहता हूँ ॥
11 – [ 21 September 2012 – 21 September 2013 ]
सुनूँ क्या सिंधु ! मैं गर्जन तुम्हारा , युग – धर्म का हुँकार हूँ मैं ।। =======================================================
12 – [ 21 September 2012 – 21 September 2013 ]
एक बरस बीत गया A new hope dawned . A new dream unfolded .
नई मंज़िल , नई राहें , नया है मेहरबाँ अपना ;
न जाने जा के ठहरेगा , कहाँ अब कारवाँ अपना ।।
13 – [ 21 September 2012 – 21 September 2013 ]
14 – [ 21 September 2012 – 21 September 2013 ]
एक बरस बीत गया Dust has now started settling down .
हटा कर तेरे सर से ताज , साबित कर दिया हमने ;
हमें अकड़ी हुयी गर्दन को ख़म करना भी आता है ।। =====================================================
15 – [ 21 September 2012 – 21 September 2013 ]
एक बरस बीत गया YEAR AT A GLANCE
Total Number of Batches = 10 // Total Number of Students = 59
Number of Current Students Working [ Only in Films ] = 22
Success Rate of Last Year = 40.00 % [ 37.20 % Precisely ]
Script Based Workshop Done = 7 Films
I am happy that as an acting trainer or acting tutor I had one more very satisfying year . My success rate in 2012 – 2013 is 40% and believe me , this is unprecedented . No acting institute can claim to have such a track record .
When I say and talk about acting institutes , I don’t include Shri Roshan Taneja . As I have stated in my earlier blog , he is beyond any list . A man , who is training actors since 50 long years , is definitely an uncrowned king in this field .
I don’t include Madam Ashha Chandra also . She is my teacher and I have no audacity to compare myself with her . At least my upbringing , my SANSKAR does not permit me to do that .
But yes , when I talk about acting institutes , I do include all the other ones . Veterans and upstarts have become desperate after the advent of Vidur Acting Institute . A veteran has put up road signs with arrow mark at every nook and corner signalling and indicating his address . His inglorious and shameless disciples are making tall claims and revelling in false glory . They are audacious enough to make preposterous claims . They claim to have trained almost everyone , who are there in my student list . But despite all their deceitful and mischievous efforts , they are slipping . They are failing miserably . The beginning of the end has started for the GAALI GURUS of Facebook Acting School .
As per the famous quote of Abraham Lincoln – ” You can fool some of the people all of the time , and all of the people some of the time , but you can not fool all of the people all of the time . ”
On the occasion of the anniversary of VIDUR Acting Institute , which is known as Vidur’s Kreating Charakters , I thank all the eminent people of the film industry , who helped me in my long and arduous journey .
VIDUR Editing Studio , VIDUR Club and VIDUR Theatre would also like to thank all our students , friends and well-wishers for their support and condescending behaviour .
May God bless them all !
