ഒരു ഫോട്ടോഗ്രാഫർ എന്ന നിലയിൽ ഞാൻ ഉറച്ചു വിശ്വസിക്കുന്ന ഒരു കാര്യം ഉണ്ട്. നമ്മൾ എടുക്കുന്ന ഓരോ ചിത്രങ്ങളും ഒരു ചരിത്ര സ്മാരകമാണ്. കാരണം, ആ നിമിഷത്തിന്റെ പ്രത്യേകതകൾ പിന്നീട് ഒരിക്കലും പുനര്ജീവിപ്പിക്കാൻ പറ്റില്ല എന്നുള്ളതാണ്. ആ ചിത്രത്തിലെ കഥാപാത്രങ്ങളുടെ ഭാവം, ആ സമയത്തെ വെളിച്ചം, കാറ്റിന്റെ ഗതി, അങ്ങനെ പല സംഗതികൾ അറിഞ്ഞും അറിയാതെയും ആ ഒരു നിമിഷത്തിൽ ആ ചിത്രത്തിൽ പതിഞ്ഞിട്ടുണ്ടാവും.

അങ്ങനെ ഒരു ചിത്രത്തെയും, ചിത്രകാരനെയും, കഥാപാത്രങ്ങളെയും ആണ് ഈ മത്സരത്തിൽ ഞങ്ങൾ വിജയിയായി തിരഞ്ഞെടുത്തിരിക്കുന്നത്.

3 Rajeev Mullappillyപക്ഷേ… ആ ചിത്രം പകർത്തിയതാരാണെന്നോ, ആ ചിത്രത്തിൽ ഉള്ളവർ ആരാണെന്നോ, ആ ചിത്രം ഈ വിദ്യാരംഭ ദിവസ്സം നമ്മുക്കായി പങ്കു വച്ച രാജീവേട്ടന് അറിയില്ല… അവർ – ചിത്രത്തിൽ ഉള്ളവർ , ചിത്രം എടുത്ത ഫോട്ടോഗ്രാഫർ എന്നിവർ ഞങ്ങളുമായി ബന്ധപ്പെടുക..

വിദ്യാധനം സർവ്വധനാൽ പ്രധാനം എന്നാണല്ലോ പറയുക.

അപ്പോൾ വിജയികൾക്കായി ഞങ്ങൾ ഒരു സുവർണ അവസ്സരം കൂടി നൽകുന്നു. അടുത്ത മാസം “നമ്മുടെ ഇരിങ്ങാലക്കുട” കൂട്ടായ്മയുടെ നേതൃത്വത്തിൽ നടക്കുന്ന പുസ്തക വിതരണത്തിന്റെ ഉത്ഘാടന ചടങ്ങിൽ വിശിഷ്ടാധിതികളുമായി ഒത്തു ചേർന്ന്, റോഡ് സുരക്ഷാ നിർദേശങ്ങൾ അടങ്ങിയ കുറിപ്പ് പുസ്തകത്തിന്റെ പ്രഥമ വിതരണം, നമ്മുടെ ഈ മത്സരത്തിലെ ഫോട്ടോയിൽ ഉള്ള കുട്ടികൾ, സ്കൂൾ കുട്ടികൾക്കായി നടത്തുന്നതായിരിക്കും.

റോഡ് സുരക്ഷയുടെ വിദ്യാരംഭം കൂടി അവരുടെ മനസ്സുകളിലും ജീവിതത്തിലും കുറിക്കാൻ ഉള്ള അവസ്സരം ആവട്ടെ ആ ചടങ്ങു്.

ആ ചടങ്ങിനെപറ്റിയുള്ള കൂടുതൽ വിവരങ്ങൾ അടുത്ത് തന്നെ അറിയിക്കുന്നതാണ്.

എല്ലാവർക്കും നന്മ നേർന്നു കൊണ്ട് , “നമ്മുടെ ഇരിങ്ങാലക്കുട” ക്കു വേണ്ടി രമേശ് മേനോൻ

TALENT SHARE turns 10!

Posted on Updated on

Talent Share 10th anniversary_InPixio

http://talentshare.blogspot.com/ and http://team1talentshare.blogspot.com/ is an initiative I started on 6th October 2008.

What a surprise! Incidentally, it’s the 10th anniversary day of it today.

Talent Share is a creative concept with the motto “A Talent or Knowledge Within You Is To Be Shared”.  It is because I strongly believe, if you do not share your talent or knowledge, it will die with you, whereas if you pass it on, you will remain immortal.

It was created to promote non-performing talent among children, especially, those with painting, sketching, poetry writing, story writing etc. I felt that those children with musical abilities or dancing skills always stole the limelight at school and public programmes whereas those who excelled in other areas remained sidelined.

I encouraged parents to request their children to draw, write and then present to me their creative skills as jpeg files and/or record their children performing on musical instruments and send to me the clippings and then posted them on this blog giving them individual page link.

It took time to convince them, but then, it was accepted wholeheartedly and at some point of time, membership of TalentShare Facebook page went above 600 participating children.

It was an answer to those parents who found it difficult to manage time for children, taking them to dedicated training institutes or gurus for developing their skills. A group of us guided them, encouraged both the parents and children to devote a few minutes per week for developing their innate talent. The result was amazing!.

We held competitions monthly and gave prizes to all the participating kids, without selecting them as first, second, third prize winners.  Students from schools in all over UAE and even from India, Singapore, Qatar, Bahrain, and Australia participated in the activities.

As days evolved, several other options and opportunities came to children, many of them copying this concept without imbibing its actual intentions. I still continue to promote any such talent whenever I identify them, through a dedicated FB group for Talent Share.

( https://www.facebook.com/groups/Team1TalentShare/ )

At the time Talent Share celebrates its 10th anniversary, I wish to remember and thank all the children who participated in the initial days and made it a success. I also thank Ms. Seema Shetty, of NMC group, who was confident enough to support me with gifts for many monthly competitions.

I also thank Vijayettan, Godfrey Antony,  Shaji Vallikkattiri, RJ Charu of 89.7 Hum FM and many parents from Abu Dhabi, Dubai and Sharjah  for encouraging me to come out each time with new creative activities, some of them still remain unmatched. Sincere thanks to also my family for supporting all my creative pursuits.

If you identify a person who has a talent or knowledge skills that you believe should get promoted, please do not think for even a fraction of a second. Now you know where to present his skills. #TalentShare.

To know more, you may contact me on rameshmenonabudhabi@gmail.com

Once again, sincere thanks for your continued support.

Talented singer at Kagalahalli

Posted on Updated on

On Shivarathri day, a special upload to promoted a talented singer I met in front of the Kagalahalli Shaneeswara temple, Bangalore.
If you happen to visit this temple, I will say, you should visit at least once, you will be able to meet him. One of his leg isprosthetic. Details about the temple and its specialities will be shared through a different post.
Lyrics of the song:
Namo bhootha Natha, namo deva deva
Namo bhaktha pala, namo divya teja (namo….)
Bhavabadrakara sada nirvikara
Namo loka pala namo naga lola
Namo parvathi vallabha neelakanta (namo…)
Sada suprakasha maha papa nasha
Kashi viswanatha daya sindhu jata
Namo parvathi vallabha neelakanta (namo…)

Share what you know - GN 05 Jan 2017.JPG

I am just an ordinary expatriate who came to the UAE with lots of hopes and dreams in 1987. Life has evolved and revolved over the years of my stay in the UAE. I am happy to say that I lived most of my life here. The journey has not been easy for me all these years. I am worried about the number of people, close family members who have been affected by cancer. Some have already left this world and some are fighting it out. I want to support all those who are affected by cancer in some way or another.

Also, it’s important to me to promote talent and knowledge through my own initiative for sharing talent or knowledge from within us to others. What is the point of having a skill within you, if you are not willing to share it and pass it on to someone who is willing to propagate it? It is a challenge and many people who are talented hold on to it without passing on the skills to a second or third person. We have to share our skills, talents or knowledge to those around.

I am just an ordinary expatriate who came to the UAE with lots of hopes and dreams in 1987!. Life has evolved and revolved over the years of my stay in the UAE. I am happy to say that I lived most of my life in the UAE. The journey has not been easy for me all these years. I am worried about the number of people, close family members  who have been affected by cancer. Some has already left this world and some fighting it out. I want to support all those who are affected by cancer, some way or other. Also, important is my orientation to promote talent and knowledge through my own initiative called “Talent Share” with a motto – a talent or knowledge within you is to be shared. True, what is the point of having a skill within you, if you are not willing to share it and pass it on to someone who is willing to propagate it!. It is a challenge, as many people who are talented hold on to it without passing on the skills to a second or third person. If we have to live an immortal life, we have to share our skills or talent or knowledge to those around. Remember Talent Share – with the motto “A talent or knowledge within you is to be shared”.
