CSEC– Communication Skills Enhancement Club “Do not ask your children to strive for extraordinary lives. Such striving may seem admirable but it is the way of foolishness. Help them instead to find the wonder and the marvel of an ordinary life. Show them the joy of tasting tomatoes apples and pears. Show them how to cry when pets and people die. Show them the infinite pleasure in the touch of a hand. And make the ordinary come alive for them. The extraordinary will take care of itself.” William Martin The Most ordinary thing in our life is ‘Communication’ For us Communication Skills is not an alien thing to master. We just need to revitalize our competence and re-believe in what we are Remember: ‘None of us is as smart as all of us.’ Page 04/ AmiComm/ July 2015

Featured Article “AmiComm Confident Communicator” The first thing you need to realise is that a career in the media is not a regular 9 to 5 job. If your expectation from your job is regular hours maybe you need to consider a different profession. Now that is out of the way let us look at the basic attributes that one looks for when hiring for the media: a Communication – whichever medium you work in the fact remains that you are in the business of commu- nication. The ability to communicate an idea to your audience is crucial. More importantly you need to be able to communicate precisely and succulently. Practice communication. Write draft letters draft pitches draft epi- sode synopsis movie synopsis. More importantly read what other people have written because it gives you an idea of how good communication works. b Cultivate interests outside the media : Beyond Bollywood or IPL. The media is about communicating ideas and ideas do not develop in the abstract. The best media works are by people who have a variety of inter- ests. c Power of listening and observation – absolutely important to learn to observe and listen. Do not learn bad habits from broadcast news television – the less you interrupt the more you listen and the more you observe – the more likely you are to develop a good piece of content. Ideas are usually one liners. The success of an idea depends on how well you flesh it out and points b and c help you to do this. d Easy Going – it is only in films that the difficult maverick who gets on with nobody ends up successful. In real life it is those who are easy going and easy to get along with who end up doing well. The only attitude that works well is the desire for excellence and the desire to collaborate with others. Working in the media is all about working with people and it is these people who will determine your success or failure. e Curiosity as opposed to nosiness – while curiosity may have killed the cat it helps young entrants into the media get a great start. Learn your job understand how others do their jobs be curious about subjects you work on – do your research. f Passion – is an underrated virtue but it is always good to interact with those who are passionate about life interests and the media. With all things being equal it is passion that wins the day. Education and Degrees are important. But being in the media which is fast evolving means that you have to keep evolving and bettering yourself. These are exciting times for the media hope you enjoy the ride.

Expert Advice Sabba Quidwai Apple Distinguished Educator Director Innovative Learning KSM University of Southern California USA Let the World Be Your Stage Technology and communication go hand in hand and over the years our potential reach has expanded. In our early beginnings communication was immobile - written in stone visible only to those who were within walking distance. With the 15th century came the invention of the printing press which allowed information to travel to people. As technology progressed the passing of this information became faster and faster. However one’s audience was still limited. With the rise of the world wide web the world is now your stage and the power of reach lies within your hands. The possibili- ties for you as a student are limited only to your imagination. In the book “Show Your Work” Austin Kleon argues that you don’t find an audience for your work they find you. Of course in order for people to find you you have to be findable. Imagine having shared your work over the course of your academic career you never know when a project or blog post may catch someone’s attention creating opportunities that you may have never thought possible. As a communications student how can you leverage the power of the tools available to you so that you can present yourself on the world stage What can you be doing to become more findable Share Your Work Kleon argues that people who are able to make themselves findable do so by sharing their work. They don’t just present a finished product rather they engage people in their process creating a following. This following in turn is there to support you through feedback and fellowship. Sharing can often be intimidat- ing. Will people judge me Will people like what they see Will I look like an amateur Kleon says it is the amateur who was the liveliest spirit of them all. He opens this section with a quote from Charlie Chap- lin “That’s all any of us are: amateurs. We don’t live long enough to be anything else.” Everyone has something to contribute and it is through the sharing of your ideas that your ideas can in- volve. Great creations do not come at once they come from the combination of lots of bits and pieces that when come together create an explosion. Kleon’s advice “Share what you love and the people who love the same things will find you.” Why not allow others to witness and share in your journey Page 08/ AmiComm/ July 2015 Let the World Be Your Stage Congratulations on the inaugural newsletter and I wish Amity University its faculty and students lots of success. : Sabba

Philadelphia 1993 Directed by Jonathan Demme As a courtroom drama it is extremely effective and a fine cast which includes Mary Steenburgen and Joanne Woodward stirs the emotions without sentimental overtones. Arguably the horror of death from Aids has been sanitized for popular consumption but nevertheless it is a brave and commendable effort. Soon after Tom Hanks a young hotshot in a Philadelphia law firm wins pro- motion a lesion forms on his forehead. It transpires that he has Aids and eventually the physical effects are impossible to conceal from the partners led by Jason Robards. They fire him unconvincingly citing incompetence as their reason. He knows death is inevitable he resolves to sue his old firm on the grounds that his dismissal was really because of his illness and therefore unfair. The closed society of Philadelphia law turns its back on him and in desperation he goes to a fiercely heterosexual black law- yer Denzel Washington who makes a point of standing up for the oppressed. He is essentially ho- mophobic but he is also against persecution and after initial reluctance takes on the case. It gives Hanks Movies Lawyers A Few Must Watches…. 12 Angry Men 1957 12 Angry Men masterfully directed by Sidney Lumet begins when Juror 8 Henry Fonda refuses to raise his hand when the other jurors are about to finalize their verdict – 11 votes against one which means a delay in sending a man accused of murdering his own father to the electric chair. Uncertainty and a bad defense causes Henry Fonda`s character to have a reasonable doubt about the entire case which makes the other jurors reconsider analyze and examine each aspect of the life of an unseen man for the audience. Even though Juror 8 is certain of his beliefs he asks the other jurors to explain why they think that the young man must be sentenced to death for a crime he may not have committed. It is fascinating to see how all these men express their strong arguments against juror 8. And when they dig deep into the story they understand that nothing is as simple as it seems and maybe just maybe the 18-year old man did not kill his father. While they argue about his life a great battle begins between juror 8 and a very stubborn juror 3 Lee J. Cobb who has no intention of changing his decision under the heavy facts brought up by the rest of the jurors. What is most amazing about 12 Angry Men is the simplicity of the story written by Reginal Rose. The character study is done so well and is so educational and inspiring that the audience will keep thinking about it even after watching this film. हिनदी संसकरण : एक र का ह ुआ फैसला निर ेशक: बास ु चटर ी Juror 8 played by K.K.
