From patterns to personality: how creativity helps you find your own unique voice

PhotoSparks is a weekly feature from YourStory, with photographs that celebrate the spirit of creativity and innovation. In the earlier 335 posts, we featured an art festival, cartoon gallery. world music festivaltelecom expomillets fair, climate change expo, wildlife conference, startup festival, Diwali rangoli, and jazz festival.

As explained in books like The Creative Curve and Creative Confidence, the value of creativity is at a premium in a globalised, digitally connected world, where change and disruption are the new normal. It’s not just the number of ideas you have, but their quality, originality and customer or community value that are important.

Creativity can be cultivated by keenly observing patterns and connections in the world around us, engaging with audiences, and iterating ideas and prototypes. Engaging with the field and getting regular feedback helps build creative confidence and overcome fears about risk and mistakes.

In a chat with YourStory, insights on such creative patterns were shared by Satish Pujari,

Senior 3D Animator, Technicolor. Satish is also an artist, and his works are being showcased at the Karnataka Chitrakala Parishat in Bengaluru. He graduated from Vijay Mahantesh Lalitakala Mahavidyalay in Hubballi, and was also team lead at Tata Elxsi’s Visual Computing Lab.

In this photo essay, we feature some of Satish’s works, along with samples of the other exhibiting artists: Sanjay Chapolkar, Nilanjan Guha, Vidhu Pillai, Ravindra Mahale, Nagabhushan, Satish Biradar, Vittal Kulkarni, H Sheshechala, and Ram Mohan.

Satish has been in the animation field for over 15 years, but has also created a range of unique paintings that feature bonsai trees. As shown in this photo essay, some of the bonsai trees also seem to have elements of animals, birds and human characters – such as eagles, peacocks, snails, and even a pregnant woman.

“Making a connection between patterns and finishing a work of art is itself an act of success,” Satish explains. He also sees success for himself as an artist in making a deep connect with audiences.

His art works are priced in the range Rs 10,000 to Rs 15,000. “If someone shows an obvious liking to my painting but says he is unable to pay the full price, I don’t mind giving a discount. What matters is seeing that the art work gives him happiness,” Satish says, though he jokes that other artists may not see things his way.

The message he wishes to convey through his art is respect for nature, both plant and animal life – hence the duality of both forms in his works. “Imagine if all Indian citizens had to plant a tree in order to get an Aadhar card, and if the government then gave you benefits for planting the tree – how green India would be,” Satish explains philosophically.

He also offers advice for aspiring artists. “Observe the style of other artists, but don’t imitate them. Learn from them but don’t copy them – focus instead on developing your own unique style, based on your technique and the connections and meaning you see in the world,” he explains.

“Develop your own talent. Don’t constrain your creativity,” Satish signs off.

Now, what have you done today to pause in your busy schedule and see how to build impactful connections with the shifting trends around you?

Reception distance on long wave is much like that on the DX AM broadcast band, as are reception patterns

One colossal predicament when tuning long wave is electrical noise from vigor traces, electrical instruments, motors, etc. Long wave is a approaches extra susceptible to such noise than better frequencies, and you might hear only a loud “buzz” whilst you tune across long wave from your area. Additionally, static crashes from thunderstorms will also be severe, notably in summer. To combat noise, many long wave DX ers use an indoor “loop” antenna that enables rejection of neighborhood electrical noise sources. Unique long wave DXers use special phasing items to scale back noise stages.

Higher style is doable when the sign is achieving you over a water course, as is traditionally the case in coastal areas. At night time, reception of stations from thousands and even countless numbers of miles away is plausible. Night time reception on long wave is fitter in wintry weather than in summer time, and the equinoxes on the whole provide the fine propagation.

Not like the shortwave frequencies above 1700 kHz, the long wave spectrum is allotted on a extra “advert hoc” groundwork, with designated patrons and offerings in general sharing the equal frequency variety. This is a common description of the sector under 540 kHz:

Underneath a hundred thirty kHz: signals underneath 100 thirty kHz don’t propagate excellent by way of the ionosphere; the absorption is simply too first-rate even at night time for the duration of wintry climate. These symptoms can travel for 1000s of miles via flooring wave, but immoderate transmitter powers are required. Signals at very low frequencies, about 50 kHz and cut down, can penetrate sea water superb. As a result, these frequencies are utilized by army forces of the important powers, specifically for conversation with submarines. The U.S. Navy’s “Omega” navigation system is learned on 10.2, 12, and 13.6 kHz. The Russian amateur radio  navy operates a identical approach on 15.62 kHz. The U.S. Air drive has a FSK-founded communications system on 29.5 and 37.2 kHz. This process used to be as soon as established to provide a backup in case nuclear explosions rendered the ionosphere useless for propagation. Miscellaneous FSK-centered stations are located here for direct communications with submarines and naval forces.


100 thirty five to 137.5 kHz: The 2200 meter band is likely one of the cutting-edge newbie radio bands. It’s not dispensed in all global places and is available easiest on a secondary foundation. In U.S. The distributed frequencies are one hundred thirty 5.7 kHz to 137.Eight kHz, at a maximum output of 1 watt for CW or digital contacts best.
