Tejaswini Popli – The Bubbly Child artist you saw in the Punjabi Super hit movie Band Vaaje

A noted Italian educator Loris Malaguzzi once said, “Children need the freedom to appreciate the infinite resources of their hands, their eyes and their ears the resources of forms, material, sound and colors”. While children are given the freedom they start exploring their passion, in search of passion they search themselves.

Some children are born actors and some learn acting. We recently met Tejaswini Popli, daughter of a renowned PCS Officer of tricity & a hardworking well known teacher of tricity. Tejaswini acted in a Punjabi movie, “Band Vaaje” as a child artist that was released in March 2019.  Tejaswini says she wants to be an actor and it is her passion to not only do acting but also directing as she grows up.

As we interacted with Tejaswini she shared with us her experience of acting in her first film. She says, “It was like a dream coming true, I loved shooting in winters, dressing for the scenes. Of all the best part of the entire thing was the humble and caring actors I was surrounded with.”  

She thanked her parents for being her constant support and supporting in her decision of acting and appreciating her passion. Tejaswini explains that despite being away from school for shooting she managed to get above 90% in her final exams. She says, “My mother’s efforts helped me score well in my exams, she used to teach me on the sets while we were shooting so that my syllabus gets completed on time and I become successful in both the fields.”

Sharing with us about how she felt seeing herself on the screen, Tejaswini says she liked all her dialogues in the movie and herself. Though all the artists are her favorite, but she is her own favorite.

Meeting Tejaswini made us realize to the core of our heart as how important it is to have daughters at home. Her energy, positivity and enthusiasm was something that is worth praising. A small girl full of confidence and dreams sparkling in her eyes is indeed beautiful Tejaswini. She believes in the line, “Mein apni favorite hun” and hence pampers herself to the best.

We wish her more success in coming years and we wait to see her in the upcoming movies as well.

PUJA SETH, Artist from Chandigarh – PLAPP’S Featured Beautiful Minds.

She finds joy in painting and creating different forms of artwork. The more she creates, the more satiated she feels and realises one can never use up creativity; it only makes you grow. She is none other than our talented artist Puja.
She started painting as a kid and completed her diploma in fine arts. However owing to studies and then job, she had completely lost touch with art. Very soon she realised had heart only for art. Art was something in which she found solace and peace. Then painting happened to her again like a true lost love found again.

Talking about her inspiration Puja says, “Mr. Avinash who is a calligraphy master and a professor. The dedication and simplicity with which he breaks down the beautifully designed alphabets into sequences of strokes, is remarkable!”
She believes that you should keep learning at every stage of your life. Puja recently attended Skillshare, a beautiful platform for all artists. She’s trying to pick up brush lettering and calligraphy through it. For all other beautiful artists she advises, “Be in no rush to learn. When it’s Art, paint or create like you have all the time in the world for yourself. Put on your favourite music and just create, allow it to be funny, ugly, unpresentable or just a mess. But POUR IT ALL OUT, your stress, your pain, your anger or anxiety or just happiness.”

Art By Savi

Based out of the city beautiful Chandigarh, Savi is a full time artist who has always loved to draw since childhood. After graduating from the International Institute of Fashion Design with a bachelor’s in science, she got an opportunity to teach illustration and design which perhaps rekindled her lost desire to work as an artist. With time, Savi began to gain confidence to communicate using art as her language instead of just illustrating what anyone can easily photograph or see.

Savi says, “My current paintings are a reflection of my inner world, spiritual connection, the cosmos and even my daily life, sometimes even used to empower myself through not so good days.”
This super talented artist is still learning and exploring the something new everyday by currently studying Art Therapy. This not only mingled with her love and passion for human psychology and art, together. But also helped her in understanding her own workings as well.
This dedicated artist finds herself emotionally connected to alot of Frida Kahlo’s paintings. She appreciates the fact that Kahlo chose herself as her muse because she knew only herself, and wanted to better herself and Savi thinks too much emphasis is place on external materials and people these days to feel alive, worthy, and she inspires this budding talent each time to stay true to herself.

Savi remarks, “We only get better in what we are truly passionate about in life. Curiosity and passion are alot more important than anything else that is perceived to be naturally given to us. I also encourage to use art as your own personal language that you use to communicate with you own inner being and the world, and to not get lost in comparison. That is where the true joy of it lies.”

Seeza Bhardwaj – PLAPP’s Featured Master in Chandigarh

Seeza Bhardwaj , an IT engineer, mother and founder of The Green Loom often looked at the world and wondered if this is the kind of place she’d want her child to live in. From a very young age Seeza rejected the materialistic greed that enveloped society and drove it towards a frenzy of wanting more and more.

She says,“ What people need to learn and accept is that whatever you have is enough for you.It wasn’t until I became a mother myself, when I realised I needed to give my child a planet and future he thanks me for. I firmly believe we owe everything to the environment and the least we can do is live in a way that’s eco-friendly and benefits both mankind and the environment. We need to introspect and think, will my child thank me for this world around him?”

The Green Loom is a brand that aims at providing quality , organic and eco-friendly products to their customers , directly from the nature’s bounty. The products range from organic and preservative free food items , re-cycled paper products, cold pressed oils and beauty products.

“I mean if we talk about beauty who knows it better than the Dadis and Naanis of the world? They’ve been beautiful long before chemicals and synthetic substances took over the field of beauty and cosmetology. I was very young , and i remember watching this movie , Naayak, and I know it sounds funny but that movie inspired me. Not to become the CM for one day of course but that one person can change the world if he sets his mind to it. You see one has to start small. One person taking up eco-friendly alternatives can have a huge impact going forward. Ignorance can’t be an excuse for not caring about the planet we live on!”

A Master’s Tip to all fellow learners – A small change can be more powerful than people think.

Creative Writing Workshop in Chandigarh!- Plapp Review

Creative Writing Workshop in Chandigarh!

Powered by Plapp!

 If you are a writing bee and prefer to pen down your every second thought, you probably might have heard of

 “The Anonymous Writer!”

 I mean like- who hasn’t? It is simply one of India’s fastest growing writing platforms. But have you ever thought of learning from the writers from The Anonymous Writer?

Well, I did not until I came across https://www.facebook.com/theplapp/

Yes!Plapp– The coolest startup in Chandigarh that connects you with like-minded people, while you find your passion and indulge in your favorite delicacies!

So, to start with, I joined the Plapp’s Creative WritingWorkshop! And the experience is not worth any combination of 26 letters. But I attended the writing workshop, so I am supposed to write, right?

Who host the workshop?

The workshop was hosted by the collaboration of Plapp with the two writers from “The Anonymous Writer!”

The duration of the workshop was around 4 hours, and I sometimes wonder how that time passed by! The team equipped us with the basics of writings and left us like some storytellers in our very own way!

From reading the paintings to reading in between the lines, writing for word and sentence prompts, nanotales, microtales, I almost learned everything in that time span.

Not only this, I found so many people with same interest as mine, and got along with them in no time- Thanks to the ice-breaking session!

(Is there anything better than connecting with the like-minded people that too on a free weekend?)

 The whole workshop was no less than amazing! And left me with skills and experience that will live with me forever!

It does not end here! We were also given a chance to be featured on “The Anonymous Writer” page, and a direct submission, anytime you’d write something that works for them!
