Wish you a very Happy New Year 2012! :)
Despite all the predictions of the world coming to an end, let's just welcome 2012 as it brings along with it hope, positivity and newness in our lives. It's an occasion to refresh, resolute and recharge at an individual level. Like we had in schools, 'the waiting period' for the last exam to get over so that we could start something new, the arrival of the new year too is such an occasion wherein we ought to leave our tough moments and move ahead, give more for better.
Last year, I had the opportunity to converse with many of you and the most common questions asked to me were - 'Who is creative?', 'Can anyone be creative?', 'How do you become creative?'. My own experience and intuition says that 'Everyone is creative. Yes, everyone! I have no second opinion on that and my aim this year on maktion will be to spread creativity as much as possible. I will make an attempt to come up with simple suggestions/activities, etc so that most of you can realize and connect with creativity. Remember, creativity is not something which only painters and fashion designers have. Anyone can be creative as it's only a matter of his/her realization.
With the first firecracker of 2012 comes a refreshed maktion which is - new, bright, more! It took me some time to think and finalize this theme as I asked myself a question - what's the aim of maktion? I went back to the year 2008 when I first thought of the idea of having a website, blog, etc - basically a meium of creative exchange. Somewhere in all this, the idea of maktion took birth from my hostel room. My entire MBA class was preparing for their last and final semester exams and here I was giving 8-10 hours every night to build maktion so that I can have it up on the web before I leave B-school. And, being a Biologist (by academics), it wasn't easy to have all the HTML codes, tech, domain, DNS server, etc in place for the final experience. That was one of my life's best individual learning experiences where I just had three things with me - my creativity, my passion and my laptop. With these three, I went ahead and rolled out maktion to make everyone experience creativity. So, did I achieve something out of all this? i think I did. Today, I can say a proud 'Yes!' Many visitors come back with their feedback, suggestions and questions and that's where I try to help them in every possible way. Now, some even recognize me for maktion and that feeling is simply great! It's been an exciting journey and now it's time to take maktion to the next level.
Your maktion is now - new, bright, more!
So, what is new, bright, more? Well, maktion is a cube of creativity and if the three identified elements - new, bright, more fall in place then I believe your time spent at this blog will be fruitful and you will get to experience creativity!
- new - covering new trends and topics connecting with creativity
- bright - visuals, designs, logos, etc which excite the human mind will be featured
- more - more posts, activities, cross-learning, education, experience sharing
Wish you grand success in your chosen line.
