The Experience of GLOW, The Project Tiger 2.0

Project Tiger, a collaboration of Wikipedia with Google to add and improve the Indic Wikipedia articles. After completing this edit-a-thon successfully in 2018, the CIS-A2K again started the 2nd round as GLOW which abbreviates as Growing Local Language Content on Wikipedia.

During the 1st time, I got the Chromebook, so this time I had applied for the Internet. Nitesh Gill and Suswetha Kolluru, the Project Tiger Co-ordinators from CIS-A2K had helped me a lot from the beginning.

Before starting this project, I had participated in Project Tiger Community Consultation at Chennai in March 2019, where we had planned for this edit-a-thon.

This edit-a-thon started from the 10th of October in 2019 and ended on 10th January 2020. This time, we got the chance to choose the articles for this edit-a-thons from which we had created just 155 articles.

Dr. Subas Chadran Rout had created 76 articles, Aliva Sahoo had created 48, Harihar Satpathy had created 24 articles, and I had created just 6. In those days I had an issue with the company where I was working, so couldn't create many articles, but overall we had improved from the previous edit-a-thon.

In 2018, I was in Bangalore and had participated in an offline edit-a-thon at CIS-A2K office, Bangalore, where I had created 4 or 5 articles in one day, but at this time, we couldn't conduct any offline edit-a-thon, which might help to create more articles.

The overall experience is good and for this edit-a-thon, some new and good* articles are created on Odia Wikipedia. I couldn't participate more in this edit-a-thon, but the internet support is still on, which is definitely helping me to create articles every day for the #100wikidays.

I must thank all the co-ordinators from Wikimedia Foundation, CIS-A2K, Local Jury members, all the participants, and the Google team for this project.

A Short film on the Paika Rebellion in Odisha

A Short film on the Paika Rebellion in Odisha

Once Odia producer Akshaya Parija had announced an Odia film Bakshi Jagabandhu featuring Anubhav Mohanty based on the Paika Rebellion in Odisha.

At that time, I had planned to create a page about this film on Odia Wikipedia. Later, someone else created, but still, the film is pending. Later I heard some gossips about this film.

Just 2 to 3 days back I came to know about a film trailer named "Paika Bidroha" on the Twitter timeline of Odia actor Samaresh Routray.

It's a short Odia film on the Paika Rebellion in Odisha featuring two famous villains of Odia film Industry Samaresh Rourtray and Manoj Mishra, both were students of National School of Drama.

The film is available on YouTube, you should watch it and have to know that part of the history of Odisha.

I love the way they presented the film to us. As a short film, they had picturized the whole thing within around 25 minutes, which is easy for this generation, because now all want a big novel as a short story.

I should thank the cast and the whole production team for making this film and releasing it on YouTube.

Dil Bechara - End of that Beautiful Smile

Dil Bechara - End of that Beautiful Smile
Dil-Bichara-Review-by-Sangram-Keshari-Senapati

Dil Bechara, the last movie of Sushant Singh Rajput and the debut film of Sanjana Sanghi in a lead role. But it was really hard to watch him for the last time on a new story.

When he died, all demanded to release it on the big screen, but due to the COVID issue, they released on Disney+ Hotstar, which is available for all users.

Yesterday I couldn't watch the movie, so today watched it and trust me, this is the 1st movie where I didn't skip any songs while watching and watched from start to the end, each and everything.

The storyline of the film is on single line, "ek tha Raja, ek thi Rani... Dono margayi, khatam kahani..." But here one is suffering badly. And the end is really emotional, where nobody except the self-made best film critic of the country couldn't hold their tears.

And one thing is, now everybody loves the film because he is no more and if he would be here, lots of people would have been trolling him. But what he and others did in the movie is really appreciating.

I'm not in that position to judge the movie or songs, but the overall thing is amazing and I love each and every part. And there is a surprise for the audience when they visit Paris, must watch that.

Still, I couldn't believe he is no more. But it's the truth and we have to accept that. And I would say again, "I would miss that smile on his face."

Ichha- Odia Series on TarangPlus

Ichha- Odia Series on TarangPlus
Ichchha-odia-series-on-TarangPlus

When TarangPlus was launched, all were excited, and the previous two web series Chumbak and 72 Hours are good, though I love Chumbak more.

During this lockdown, people get frustrated just because of the amount they gave as the plan and just two web series, not many exciting movies, so finally, another new series, Ichha has been released on this platform. 

The series starred Gargi Mohanty in lead, an excellent dancer, an actress whom we still remember as Devi from the serial Devi and she had played some exciting character in different Television serials and also films. She is played the character of Nikita Choudhury or Nikki.

The two male leads are Dushmant and Rajesh. Dushmant was famous for the album songs and later for movies, this series may boost his career now. The young lead hero Rajesh is known for the various character from YouTube series to Television series on Tarang and Zee Sarthak. Some side roles are played by Priyanka and Snigdha Mohanty and some new actors.

The story is based on a true story which I think. On an episode of Satya Meva Jayate by Amir Khan, they had featured a girl who left her husband just because of her happiness, and this story is quite similar and the writer had stretched in a good way which is good.

I shouldn't narrate the plot now, but it's an exciting love story, where you would some interesting clips of Gargi Mohanty and obviously you have to forget that Devi character from your mind.

Since it's on an OTT platform more bold scene and censorable languages are there, which is common now and there are lots of meme material in episode 6. Though I'm not familiar with Cuttaki style, I may not relate more with those dialogues in episode 1. 

If we compare the characters and their role play with the other two series, then 72 Hours and this one is better, because all are experienced actors and they know how to play the character perfectly.

If we would talk about music and songs, I love the songs more and the lyrics is really nice. However Sashank Shekhar is a good singer, that's why he got the state film award, but still couldn't retrieve his article on Odia Wikipedia. 

And the overall concept and the roles are good, but the role of Nikki's Mother played by Priyanka Mam could be more interesting, which I feel, but the director knows more.

I would recommend you watch this if you support the extramarital affair and of course, you should watch if don't support it. And don't judge a book from its cover, just read it properly and under what the author is willing to say.

I would Miss this Smile on Your Face

I would Miss this Smile on Your Face
Sushant Singh Rajput's Smile

Yesterday I was sleeping and my father turned on the news, which was about you. "Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput committed suicide at his Mumbai home." I couldn't believe it, I just heard it and quickly woke up and the bad dream was real.

I tried to convince myself that, he is "Anni" and how could he commit suicide? But this is not in the film, it's in real life and it's not happened with Anirudh, it happened with Sushant, another Dhoni of our country.

I came to know about you when you went to The Comedy Nights with Kapil to promote your 2nd movie Shuddh Desi Romance and from that day love your smile and the way of your talking.

That day, when you cried on the Road as MS Dhoni, almost all cried with you. But today, you left us with tears. How could you think nobody would care for your nobody would cry for you? Yes, there are people who become friends in good times only, but there is at least one friend in the world, who really cares for you.

From yesterday, I was trying to write this, but I couldn't. I know the pain of depression and the reality of these people who are talking about you and caring for you now. I don't know the cause of yours, but it's a really tough time for everybody.

After the Chhichhore Movie, I wanted to thank you personally, but that won't happen in this life. But sir I love you for making that movie and I would miss that smile on your face.

And we are the Best creation of God!

And we are the Best creation of God!
elephant died in kerala 2020

As per the human belief, "We are the best creation of God." We have a better lifestyle, we have a fully functioning brain, we have the power to understand everything and lots of things which we only have in this world.

Is this really true? Are we really that creation about which we always take the credit? I don't think so.

If you are thinking you agree with the above lines, then yes, you are the best creation of God, not me.

A few days back, in Odisha one pregnant dog died just because of this human, a few months back, one 5 dogs died with a car accident and now another big incident.

According to the Times of India news, "A pregnant elephant died on May 27 after a local allegedly fed her a pineapple stuffed with crackers, in Malappuram, Kerala."


Can you think of such things in your mind? I'm eating chicken, that's why I may not have that power to talk against the hunting of birds, but in such case, I've everything to raise my voice. But who would listen now? Can our voice bring the life of that elephant and the baby inside her?

But if you could be more careful about such things, if we could care about these animals, birds, then we could also deserve that title, "The Best Creation of GOD."

Suzuki Burgman - The Best Scooter in India

Suzuki Burgman - The Best Scooter in India
Suzuki Burgman - The Best Scooty in India

From the past few days, I was looking for a scooter for local travels. I went to Suzuki, Honda, Hero, Yamaha, TVS to know the features, prices, looks, everything. And choose the Suzuki Burgman.

First of all, when I saw this 1 year ago, I love the look. It's a like a sports bike. From that day, I was planning for this one.

But when my father asked to buy one for this Corona pandemic, I went to almost all showrooms in Bhadrak. Though, I prefer this one, but better to check before you buy, so you couldn't blame yourself after that.

Why Suzuki Burgman is more preferable?

It's a 125 CC bike with tubeless tyres and a huge size with an attractive look. The fuel economy is also good, around 50 to 55 kilometers (as per some purchaser). For me, it's the best scooter in India.

I was thinking about the metallic black, but my father suggested to choose some other color, and then I called the delivery boy and he send me the photos of this one.

My parents as well as our astrologer preferred this one. This was the last piece in stock there, so I asked him to book this one and as per the suggestion of our astrologer, my father asked to pick from the showroom on 27th May 2020.

Best Self Start among Suzuki Scooter

But, the number registration system was closed by the RTO up to 1st June, so till 1st June, I could ride this one. By 1.30 pm on 1st June, I got the numbers, but due to heavy rain and wind flow, I could take it to fix the number plate.

best scooter in india 2020

So, yesterday, on 2nd June, finally I took this to the showroom to add some extra gadgets and then put a simply designed number plate.

In India, we actually do worship every new thing which we bought. So, today, in the morning I took it to the Bankabasuli Temple in Bhadrak and then finished the worship. And now, it's fully authorized to ride.

Why Indians Worship new vehicle

These are all the good things which I had written before, but there are some features which should be there. If we are investing 100K on a scooter, it should come with at least a sensor system like Yamaha Fascino.

YouTube Vs TikTok - A Waste of Time

Sangram Keshari Senapati May 17, 2020 0
YouTube Vs TikTok - A Waste of Time

In 2017, when I wan in Bangalore, I saw my roommate Nikas was watching a video where the person was abusing someone. For the first time, I couldn't imagine what was going on, but I enjoyed it. It's the normal human tendency to see the bravery in movies and it was like that.

After that, he suggested me to watch some more videos and obviously I watched some. Then I completed watching all of his videos from the QnA videos to the community guideline strike, everything and came to know more about him.

Then, I saw some of his interview videos; in some of his interview, he had explained about that video, where he roasted BB Ki Vines aka Bhuvan Bam and how he got 1K views in his first and in another interview I saw how Bhuvan explained everything, how he supported him, how he talked to him and appreciate that.

But, till that time, I was unable to understand how a teenager could use such languages in public, where he mentioned that, his mother uses to watch all of his videos 1st before releasing on YouTube. He, I mean Carry Minati aka Ajey Nagar belongs to Faridabad, Delhi where such words are common and they are okay with that. So, it was cool with him and his family. 

But now why I'm talking about him? Because of his record-breaking video on some Tik Tok users, which is taken down by the YouTube community from YouTube. Here, I'm going to explain about the actual marketing plan within that.

I've watched all his videos, so I know whom he roasted and how all reacted at that time and then how they became friends. While Carry roasted BB Ki Vines, Bhuvan took positively and while he roasted Dhinchak Pooja, she used him properly and got millions of views on YouTube.

Now, he did the same thing, he abused Aamir Siddiqui and some others, where the fight now became Carry Minati vs Tik Tok. This video got lots of views and carry got more than 6 million subscribers in a few days. Here Carry Minati broke the record to gain the highest subscribers within 24 hours.

All YouTube users started saying the same thing about his video and now the internet community divided into 3 parts; the 1st one supporting YouTube, 2nd one supporting Tik Tok, and the 3rd one is supporting both.

I even didn't know who is Aamir Siddiqui, but now lots of people knew about him and another user Mr. Faisu started his YouTube channel and got more than 400K subscribers within a few days and his 1st vlog video is trending on no1 at some region also.

How could his 1st video got such views and trending on rank 1? It's just because of this video by Carry Minati and others on YouTube. All the social media news channels, even some other news channels are also talking about them. This video got more than 1.2 million dislikes also, but the YouTube algorithm doesn't see the like and dislike ratio, it matters about views and ultimately he is getting views.

Now the question is, why they are doing this? Carry Minati previously said, he is doing all these roasts with the proper permission and I think here there is something like that and all are taking benefits from that. But the big question is why YouTube deleted that?

It's because there are some questionable things, but I think those people had played a game at the proper time. Carry's video was going to make a world record, most liked non-music video every on YouTube.

At the time of T-Series vs Pewdiepie, the whole American community supported Pewdiepie against T-Series and all promoted his channel and requested to subscribe. Even someone flew a helicopter with a flag to subscribe Pewdiepie.

At this time, they might play some games like this and deleted the video while it was about to touch 10 million likes. But what our people are doing? Whey we all are shouting here like dogs?

Here Carry and other YouTubers are getting views and those Tik Tok users are increasing their fan base and what these people are shouting like fools? These people are wasting their time and obviously promoting them.

8Yrs Of Gabbar Singh Hysteria is Trending on No 3

8Yrs Of Gabbar Singh Hysteria is Trending on No 3

When Dabang of Salman Khan was released all were doing that Dabang dance and the glass style, putting it backside hanging from the shirt collar. Even, I did that in some photos which you may find on my Facebook page.

But the big breaking news came when Pawan Kalay had done the remake of Dabang as Gabbar Singh. The style and the punch dialogues made the fans mad. Though I couldn't understand the Telugu Language, I watch is with the sub-titles. As much as I love the role of Pawan Kalyan, I love the character of Brahmanandam Garu in the film.

I have watched it more than 20 times. Every time, the charm increases more. And we all were waiting for the next part, Sardar Gabbar Singh. It came with a totally different story and also with a new heroine Kajal Agrawal. But, I didn't like the 2nd part as much as I like the 1st part.

But, who cares about the story when the Power Star himself in the film. So, we watched the full movie, but not as many as times with the 1st one.

Happy Mother's Day

Happy Mother's Day

Mother's Day is a celebration for honoring the mother of the family, as well as motherhood, maternal bonds, and the influence of mothers in society. This was started from United States in the 20th Century.

In the United States and other western countries, most families are busy with their personal work, but here our mothers are always busy her child, for her family. They celebrate this to honoring their mother and we are also following that thing. I never oppose people who are inspiring from other's cultures.

I came to know about this day from social media. Actually, these social media helps to celebrate lots of days from earth day to mother's day and father's day. I never say 'Happy Mother's Day' to my mother, because she doesn't need that.

If you come to your mother on a single day only to wish her and rest 364 days are west. So, I'm here with her to help her, for her and for us, all 365 days are the Mother's day, Son's Day, Family Day, everything.

Today, I'm sharing her photo with my sister which was clicked on sister's marriage day.
