Cinema is almost always the topic of discussion whenever I talk to a close friend‘X’ since we are big time film enthusiasts. He has written and directed many plays and short films. He has a taste for comedy and romantic films and generally sticks to making comedies. A couple of days ago, during our usual film-conversation, he made a statement that discomforted me. He said, “Though I enjoy all kinds of films, I prefer making only comedies because I think I’m good at it!”
Rajnikanth as bus conductor
If you write down the names of highly successful people in different professions and spheres of life and point out one thing they have in common, it would be ‘risk-taking.’ As big the name, as big the risk involved. We all live in an imaginary shell we have built ourselves; let’s call it our ‘comfort zone.’ We are so petrified of breaking out of this shell that we dismiss every single thought which would possibly put us out of our comfort zone. Imagine if Rajnikanth didn’t dare to go for an acting audition thinking he was good at what he did.He would still have been an unknown bus conductor in Tamil Nadu.
Ram Gopal Varma, Film maker
Great artistes, by shifting genres and constantly challenging themselves with greater roles, discovered themselves. Exploring different worlds and discovering yourself will lead you to another level of consciousness. You will discover qualities in you which you never knew existed. And then, even if you fail in such an attempt, you will at least learn what not to do. This reminds me of a recent tweet by Ram GopalVerma: “I never made flops… I was just highly successful many times in discovering how not to make a film.”
Coming back to my friend, the funny part is that he wasn’t even confident about what he was doing. Because he didn’t say he’s good at it, he said, “I THINK I’m good at it!” There’s nothing I can tell him, except this cheesy line: “Darrkeaagebadho. Darrkeaagejeethai. (Walk past fear. Victory awaits you.)”
When arduous works of short film makers are screwed to pace of ease, the natural* choice is 'Kalaanantarupah', a company with terms not under the sort of arcane and provides financial support to multilingual avid short film makers. A back-breaking call to action for short film freaks.

During tête-à-tête session, Mr.Thiyagarajakumar has assured his support to debut short film makers thus points his invariable approach. Standing high is that he can invest even in crores for a project. Likely the company holds the standard* rights for the projects without mutual disorder*.
“ I am personally convinced that visual art can be a change catalyst, a “transformer” in any situation in life -personal and professional. Such an vidual is yeast that can leave an entire loaf. It requires vision, initiative, patience, respect, persistence, courage, and faith to be a transforming to reach the leadership stage" - Mr.Thiyagarajakumar (Director)

There are many major problems for our government such as
Ø Difference in per capita income between poor and rich people.
Ø Fake currency of Indian note.
Ø Deposition or saving of huge money by rich people.
Ø Lots of currency papers are used in today’s time.
Ø Average or almost equal value of Indian currency regarding neighboring country’s currency.
Ø Low infrastructure for terrorist to produced terror.
Ø Little amount of capital imports from developed country.
Ø Costly education and business in abroad for Indian citizen.
Ø Difficult to calculate the total capital of India.
Ø Damages of currency note.
Ø Per capita income is low.
Ø India is still a developing country.
There is only one solution for these entire problems.
(i) We have to change the currency using this parameter.
10 rupees = 1 new currency
Then one dollar ($1) = 4
Change of currency brings the price of all things reduce to 1/10th times.
Now average per capita income of middle class people is almost $813 and for rich people is $8140.
The difference is 10 times. Now, if we change the currency then the average income of poor people is $2930 and for rich people is remain $8140.
Now the difference is about 3% only.
v This change provides similar status among poor people and rich people.
v These steps are useful to enhance the living standard of middle class people.
The need of change of currency note is the only option in front of us and the new currency must be safer, strong, portable and non-copied.
v The new currency should be wash proof.
v Shorter in size.
v Radium coated / shines in dark.
v Non-torn able.
v Wrinkle free.
v Identify by touching.
