Birthday Testimonials for Surbhi Goyal

IMG_9733.JPG

“Curious, thoughtful, out-of-the-box and without prejudice, Surbhi can be the perfect collaborator, always handy with an insight. But beware of her sweet-tooth. On this day of her birth, shower her or face her chirpy wrath.”
-Aditya Choudary
“Surbhi is a sweet little girl. 😀 She is talented and reads lots of books as I know and it’s a good quality. Even though I always make fun on her, she always reply with a smile. Many many happy returns of the day. Surbhi, have fun.”
-Moon Arun
“Surbhi! The scarf girl. A book lover who makes her own world through her imaginative power, can see a big picture which others can’t. A very good presenter. I have seen lot of improvement in her skills from the day I first saw her and that inspires me to improve my skills too. At last, she is a very good person you can work with, a very good listener. A small and cute girl with lots of talent. I wish you achieve all that you desire. Have a great year ahead.”
-Jatin Aggarwal
“She is a little bunny with a cruel face 😀, who lives in her own another world in her mind, a world which no man on earth can even think of. She stays a bit confused most of the time, but she is one who made me look through situations crisp and clear. And today on your birthday, I wish the wings of freedom for you to fly in the sky of that world you imagine.”
-Aayushi Sharma
“Dreamer of reality & creator of fiction. Wishing you a very happy birthday. Keep up the good work of coming up with creative ideas followed by interesting imagination. Personally thanks for making my ideas more interesting. Have a great day and looking forward for party.”
Himanshu Bassi (Ikki)
“She is a mystery. A sweet element of history. She is bird with sunny feathers. Her eyes hold uncharted worlds. She is both the dance and the dancer. She is the leaf and the tree. Happy Birthday, Little one. Grow beyond years, beyond time.”
-Baba Toon
“You have a spectacular smile and seeing that even the gloomiest day can change colour. Be soft and still and watch the world sway in your grace. Happy birthday, dear Surbhi.”
-Sumanto Majumder

The Young Filmmakers: Aayushi & Surbhi

It is a proud moment for Aayushi and Surbhi. They completed their first short film and returned to their alma mater (Banasthali University) to showcase. It was a gala event when the former students held the stage and the attention of the faculty. The current students made wonderful posters for the screening.

After a standing applause, Aayushi and Surbhi answered the many inquisitive questions about the process, about specialisation, about the world beyond the college walls and in general about two girls’ journey into the digital art world.

It is the core of our company culture to enable our studio team to take part in individual creative projects. We believe in supporting our members to evolve as artists and create monumental body of work. The progress that Aayushi and Surbhi has shown in such a short span of time is incredible. As a company we continue to nurture new talents and give home to the creatives.

The Film Synopsis:
The world has forgotten her and her voice lost in the hustle of the living. Amma is a ghost to her people, a forgotten memory. Her only companion is a slipper obsessed dog. Her old pot sags and the thread snaps; the old tree loses its last leaf. In the autumn of life, the god of death visits. Finally a journey. But even death ignores her. And she is left alone again with no company.

The Backdrop:
Based in the narrow dusty lanes of Nivai (Rajasthan), Amma is a real person and her loneliness is a lived reality. This film is an experimentation in traditional animation by merging both elements of 2D and 3D. The movement of the characters are in 2D and have been placed in a 3D background. The tone is realistic with a brief interpolation of surrealism. Relatability is the core approach to the animation and the story.

The Filmmakers:
Aayushi Sharma and Surbhi Goyal are ardent students of animation. Their interest lies in the field of storytelling and creating relatable environments. This is their maiden film and the first in their journey to create an unique yet universal visual language.

Meet the HR: Komil Sharma Singh

1. What is my current work attitude/approach?

My work as an HR majorly concerns with enabling my employees/managers achieve organizational goals through collaborated efforts and self-motivation. Hence, my work for me is a medium to influence, engage and motivate. It also involves strategic management of purpose, goals and expectations of individuals, in alignment with organizational values and growth.

2. What have I done so far and what am I currently involved with?

I joined as an HR Intern in a start up and took this opportunity to learn about HR and Entrepreneurship. As soon as I joined in, I got deeply involved in the process of shaping the organizations policies and procedures related to Appointment, Compensation, Benefits, Workplace and Team Ethics. After the intense and careful journey through paperwork, I took up the never-ending task of forming the organizational culture and its set of core values. We are still working on it.

My current challenge includes exploring the world of Recruiting, Hiring and On boarding. This includes evolving our Hiring Process while streamlining it with our mission ‘Simplifying Complexity’; and developing a quality based system of processes for Training and Growth; in order to meet individual growth expectations and provide skills based training that aligns with organizations vision.

3. How did I enter the world of HR?

After working through different profiles/organizations for 6 years, I left my job 4 years ago to start my own venture. A home based Bakery that customizes delicious cuisines from across the world, into healthy products of nutritional value. While my goals were clear, I lacked experience in terms of building the right business model and managing production. In time it made me realize the importance of people. Even geniuses cannot build a castle alone. We need people for everything. We need people to design, people to plan, people to produce, people to market and people to sell.

It is then that I realized how Human Resource is closely linked to Entrepreneurship and that in order to manage anything, one first needs to know how to manage people. I am learning and growing at each step of my journey and consistently direct my achievements to enable the overall growth of my organization and its valuable set if employees.
