Introducing yourself is always funny. But since its my website It becomes a sort of liability for me to let you all know who am I. I am an Independent Artist - A Filmmaker, Animation Short Filmmaker. That's my main Identity and I would love to be associated with the same till my last breathe. I welcome all the new visitors and also some dear old friends who used to visit here quite often earlier. Due to my tight work schedule, I had to abandon this site for the same reason but didn't quit it totally. So many people asked me to get back to the site. So When I was thinking of having a new one, thought why shouldn't go back where it all began ;) So here I am. A lot more has changed during this while...definitely for the better. And I just wish to cover new milestones and take giant strides in times to come. For that I need your support and blessings. Keep them coming Always. Thankyou
Ever since a child, I was always creative. But I didn't how my life shall turn out to be. I discovered the art in myself at the age of 7 when I started painting. Initially I was very bad at it but gradually I started improving and made my own way. I won some awards in school and universities. But somehow painting didn't give me that satisfaction as an Artist. I wanted something more from life. I wanted to struggle within, just like my talented Late Uncle Baldev(Dr Baldev Mirza)who was a legendary artist. He inspired me big time as a child, a teenager, an adult and so on...
Life took a new turn when I found new love in Poetry. I wrote a lot of poems. Some were even published in magazines and got appreciation to a limited amount. That's all about it. Moving on, After completing 12th Grade successfully, I wasn't sure how should I pursue the art I was looking for. Destiny brought me to the love of Animation. Something I really enjoyed as a child. However, later I realized that this is a different ball game and I must get trained before pursuing it. Things had fallen into place and Animation was finally the right route I wanted to take.
Then it is said - It's history. I jumped into it completely and made it the motto of life. Although two things I discovered and explored this while. 1. Animation in itself was a tool for me. I am a storyteller. I want to tell stories not just animate. Animation on the whole is a different story. Hence, I don't want to be an Animator instead be an Animation Storyteller. 2. Animation taught me to pursue the idea of telling stories through short films. Animation takes a lot of time. One Animation Short Film can easily take up 6 - 7 months and that time could be easily used to tell different stories. Then why not work on the same?
The year 2012 had literary changed my life. Before that, I only used to fool myself for few achievements. But my film 'The Unknown World' changed everything. Winning one of the biggest Film Challenges in US online to having my own workshop organized in my hometown. Everything now looks like a dream. After the Unknown World, I made a lot of shorts. And by god's grace, most of them have been award winning. This year 2017 has opened with an amazing grace. My film has been nominated and shall be screened at this year's 7th National Science Film Festival at Kolkata. I just feel blessed at this moment.
