Here’s an intriguing exhibition for the art lovers in the Capital! Stupid Eye – created by artist Vipul Amar and psychologist Harsheen K Arora brings together two very different disciplines – psychology and photography. Stupid Eye depicts the process of photographing one’s True Self as a technique to delve deeper into human psyche and bring out the real you! Vipul Amar Studio of Photographic Arts and Psychologist Harsheen K Arora initiated this project where the concept of self-actualization is explored by focusing on one’s Real Vs the Ideal Self. Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’Stupid comes from its Latin origins, stupere, meaning: be amazed or stunned, with what your inner eye can make you see.As Jung (1978) stated that, ‘It requires no art to become stupid; the whole art lies in extracting wisdom from stupidity. Stupidity is the mother of the wise but cleverness never.’ The study is based on the premise, that with a better understanding of one’s true self, one is better equipped to realize one’s actual potential. Stupid Eye is a culmination of photography with psychological therapeutic techniques to enhance an individual’s insight into their self. Also Read – Leslie doing new comedy special with NetflixOriginating from the Humanistic School of thought, Real Self stands for the way an individual actually is, whereas ideal self on the other hand is the person one wants to be…The idea behind Stupid Eye is to be able to bridge this gap between the two, and move toward self-actualization – the desire to become more and more what one is, to become everything that one is capable of becoming (Maslow, 2006). Through photography and psychology the aim was to o help each person look underneath and connect with their true self; to capture that true self as seen by them and that which emerges out of their therapy sessions into a photograph and to give them that picture of themselves – it being their own little mirror for life. Each member who registered became a part of the Stupid Eye family. It was the group at work! Every member was a wheel in the journey of every other member. In the first meeting a group was formed – where the discussion led to and revolved around every member’s Real Vs Ideal Self.This project began in June 2012 with the first meet-up of a group of people in Mumbai. A brilliant first meeting that was meant to be an hour but lasted six! led to the scope of this project becoming what it is today. Post the photo-shoots for Mumbai and Delhi with the members’ stories being captured beautifully in photographs and through videos made of the entire process reached completion. All the stories that were shared, shot and captured in time are now ready to be revealed to the world. WHERE: Triveni Kala Sangam WHEN: 29 April to 7 May, 11 am to 7 pm
The literary space has seen a rising tide of Bollywood celebrities – from Karan Johar to Rishi Kapoor – turning towards memoirs and autobiographies in recent years, but books by their predecessors are striking in that they focussed on substance, rather than mere controversies.A look at the list of all major books by celebrities that have fast climbed the bestseller charts throws up an even larger list of controversies that were spun around the time of their launches and which were, in fact, the driving factor for much of their sales. The “Ajay Devgun-Kajol-Karan Johar triangle”, which was largely forgotten, came back to make headlines soon before the launch of Johar’s “An Unsuitable Boy”. Also Read – Add new books to your shelf”I am ashamed to say it, but I actually ‘bought’ that award,” Rishi Kapoor wrote in his recent memoir “Khullam Khulla”, referring to his Best Actor trophy in 1974 for Bobby. Shatrughan Sinha, too, created quite a buzz regarding a baharwali (an extramarital-affair), about whom he stays “quiet” in his biography “Anything But Khamosh”.However, these recent examples are not the only literary offerings that have come from the cine world, which has actually set high benchmarks for biographical writings in the past – but never made it to the bestseller lists. Also Read – Over 2 hours screen time daily will make your kids impulsiveIn early 2010 or 11, Udayan Mitra, Publisher-Literary of HarperCollins India, who was then working with Penguin India, visited the residence of the iconic bollywood actor Dev Anand. The publisher had signed a book deal with the actor and Mitra was there to discuss the progress of the book. Assuming that he would have to convey all the necessary guidelines to his secretary, Mitra met with one of the greatest shocks of his life when Dev Anand presented a completely hand-written 600-page manuscript to him. The result? “Romancing with Life”, one of the first-ever full-fledged memoirs by a leading Bollywood star. In the book, Dev Anand tells his remarkable life story like only he can. Here are tales from Dev’s youth in 1930s Gurdaspur and Lahore; his years of struggle in 1940s Bombay; his friendship with Guru Dutt and his doomed romance with Suraiya; his marriage to co-star Kalpana Kartik; his relationships with his brothers Chetan and Vijay Anand, with SD and RD Burman, with contemporaries Dilip Kumar and Raj Kapoor – both of whom he was very close to – and with heroines like Geeta Bali, Madhubala and Meena Kumari.”Maybe the celebrity memoirs today lack a personal touch. Most of these are also written with a co-author, who actually does most of the writing while the celebrity only narrates the stories of his life. It doesn’t mean that all memoirs today are bad, but there’s something missing in some of them,” said Mitra.Another book that comes to mind is “Speaking of Films,” which brings together some of Satyajit Ray’s most memorable writings on films and filmmaking. With the masterly precision and clarity that characterise his films, Ray discusses a wide array of subjects – the structure and language of cinema, with special reference to his adaptations of Tagore and Bibhuti Bhushan Bandopadhyay, the appropriate use of background music and dialogue in films, the relationship between a filmmaker and a film critic, and important developments in cinema such as the advent of sound and colour.One particular autobiography that aspiring writers from the film industry may consider reading before setting on the journey of penning their own book is “Dilip Kumar – The Substance and the Shadow”, the autobiography of the legendary actor. In the book, the actor candidly recounts his interactions and relationships with a wide variety of people not only from his family and the film fraternity but also from other walks of life, including politicians. While seeking to set the record straight, as he feels that a lot of what has been written about him so far is “full of distortions and misinformation”, he narrates, in graphic detail, how he got married to Saira Banu, all of which reads like a fairy tale.For a more recent example, one may turn towards “And Then One Day” by Naseeruddin Shah. It is a rare memoir brimming with substance and honesty. He makes no effort whatsoever even to hide his trysts with women, dope or smoking! In his brilliantly argued personal perspective of the megastar, he also narrates his dislike for masala movies. The chapters based on his love for cinema and theatre are so full of life that one is often lured to assume it is a kind of conversation, as if Shah has been narrating the story himself.ians
Last week, William de Groot, a digital forensics consultant discovered a protocol flaw in MySQL, which he alleges is the main reason behind e-commerce and government sites getting hacked via the Adminer database tool. He stated that Adminer can be “lured to disclose arbitrary files” which attackers can then misuse to fetch passwords for popular apps such as Magento and WordPress, thus gaining control of a site’s database. Because of this flaw, MySQL client allows MySQL server to request any local file by default. He further states that an example of such a malicious MySQL server can be found at GitHub that was “likely used to exfiltrate passwords from these hacked sites”. A reddit user also pointed out that flaw could be further exploited to steal SSH keys and crypto wallets. The only check mark is that the server has to know the full path of the file on the client to exploit this flaw. Unlike Adminer, several clients and libraries including Golang, Python, PHP-PDO, have built-in protection for this “feature” or disable it by default. This flaw is surprisingly a part of MySQL documentation which states: Source: MySQL Documentation You can head over to Willem Groot’s blog for more insights on this news.

Tags: The Travel Corporation Posted by Share TTC teams up with World Animal Protection to phase out elephant rides & support animal welfare Travelweek Group TORONTO — The Travel Corporation is doing its part to save the world’s animals by partnering with World Animal Protection.Through this partnership, TTC’s family of brands, which includes Contiki and Trafalgar, will help improve the lives of animals everywhere it travels to. World Animal Protection has worked with the company to reshape its experiences to be more animal-friendly, as well as support the phase-out of cruel activities such as bullfights, captive whale and dolphin attractions and, most significantly, removing elephant rides and shows from their trips in Thailand.“At TTC and our not-for-profit The TreadRight Foundation, we recognize the immense potential the travel industry has to change the world for the better and we can do that with the valuable guidance of leading organizations like World Animal Protection,” said Brett Tollman, Chief Executive, The Travel Corporation and Founder, The TreadRight Foundation.This past September in Bangkok, World Animal Protection brought together TTC and other leading global travel companies including TUI Group and EXO Travel to meet with representatives of elephant riding camps across Thailand. They demonstrated a shift in consumer demand for elephant-friendly tourism, and encouraged local camps to phase out rides and shows and transition instead to elephant-friendly venues.More news: Can you guess the top Instagrammed wedding locations in the world?Many tourists from around the world visit Thailand to see elephants but increasingly, these travellers are beginning to understand the lifetime of psychological and physical trauma elephant rides and shows cause. A 2017 survey shows a significant 9% drop (to 44%) in the number of people who find elephant riding acceptable compared to just three years ago. The research also shows that more than 80% of tourists would prefer to see elephants in their natural environment.“Attitudes are changing as travellers are learning more about the fear, pain and suffering elephants undergo to make rides and shows possible”, said Steve McIvor, CEO, World Animal Protection. “Travellers are increasingly demanding options that better align with their values. With the help of global travel partners like TTC we can prove that elephant-friendly attractions, those without forced and dangerous interactions with wildlife, make both ethical and financial sense for local venues. The direction of sustainable tourism is clear.”More news: Help Princess Cruises break the world record for largest vow renewal at seaTTC and more than 180 other global travel companies have agreed to no longer offer visits to venues with elephant rides and shows in any of their markets. As well, in 2016, TripAdvisor, the world’s largest travel site announced they would stop selling tickets to experiences where tourists have direct physical contact with captive wild animals or endangered species.
