How to Develop a Culture of Exporting

Behind the Lens: There is a Light

This week I wish to look at three images, each of which displays an emotional intensity beyond that normally exhibited in a fashion shoot. By focusing in on the single model, the photographers imbue their portraits with a structured elegance and raw intensity that reaches the very apex of human photography. 
From Left: Kate Moss- 1994, Twiggy- 1996, Natalie Portman- 2005

The uniting factor behind these photographs is the power of the models’ eyes. By drawing the viewer into the image in such a way, the photographer is able to project more than simply beauty. What we find in these pictures is the emotional connectivity that existis in all great art.

Get a New Perspective While Learning: Look Beyond Borders

As part of Mahatma School's International School Award Program, a group of Swedish students were invited to take part in an interactive session with their Indian counterparts.

A Nook of Simple Quotes: What is Sharing Knowledge?

A Nook of Simple Quotes

Sharing knowledge is not about giving people something, or getting something from them. That is only valid for information sharing. Sharing knowledge occurs when people are genuinely interested in helping one another develop new capacities for action; it is about creating learning processes. ~ Peter Senge
My Thoughts? 
Do you believe in sharing knowledge for the overall development of the wider group?

Share Your Thoughts: It would be great to share your thoughts?

Rozpoznání zločinců je věcí každého z nás. Obvykle se dají rozeznat podle velkých manžetových knoflíků a podle toho, že nepřestanou jíst, když je vedle sedící člověk zasažen padající kovadlinou.

The Good and Bad About Globalization

What's the impact globalization has on our world?
It is true that the impact of globalization is visible and affects largely the politics and the economy of the country but its effect on the mindset and the culture is noticeable gradually in the way people think and react. It's like the Iceberg theory wherein what we do and say are at the tip and what we think and believe is at the base. The base is not visible but manifestations at the top are conspicuous. It applies here as well where people do not change abruptly but may be after a decade the change starts showing and seems radical.

Girls will be Boys and Boys will be Girls

The desire for us females to dress the same as our male counterparts appears to have skyrocketed over recent years. From trends such as geek chic to the feminine tux it was hard not to be drawn to the idea of shooting girls and guys wearing similar styles. Fighting it out in the library we have 3 different trends all focussed around the same idea: ANDROGYNOUS DRESSING. C xxx
