THIYA & ADHIRAJ (THAJJU) – INTERVIEW at WEEKEND VIBE

DSC_0334

Question: Thajju, from where did you get the name ‘Thajju’?

 

Answer: Ugh, that is a bit weird. Thia and Ajju(Adiraj) makes Thajju. We have combined both of our names to form this one.

 

Question: So, how did you decide to make a career out of dancing together?

 

Ajju:  Initially, we both were solo artists from Kanpur. 2 years back, there was a shoot happening for an album. Thia was the lead in that and I was just a background dancer. She saw me dancing, appreciated me and said that I should be dancing in the front as well. Soon after that, auditions for the front position took place. I practiced for two continuous days so that I can get the center position and, I got it. We didn’t talk until the shoot got over. Once it was over, I asked for her number and without any hesitation, she gave that to me. Then, she invited me to perform in the Lucknow Mahotsav. After that I decided to shift to Lucknow. We decided to perform a duet on a romantic song despite us being hip-hop dancers. The competition was Raksh, where we had performed our first duet.

Question: Tell us about your journey of Just Dance India.

 

Answer: Almost all the reality dance shows are fake, but JDI is a fair competition. We were the finalists of JDI. We gave our auditions from Delhi. The owner, Aditya, had given us a standing ovation. We love to perform freestyle but along with that, we love to present Hindi as a culture. Hi-Hello karte hain, pranaam nahi karte aaj-kal ke bacche. So, we want to promote our culture as well.

 

Question: What advice would you give to a new dancer? Which dance form to choose?

 

Thia: Every dancer is a good dancer, but some of them are trying to be like Sushant Khatri and Raghav Juyal and so on. I would suggest them to be themselves. Getting inspired from such big performers is great but trying to be like their mini version is not.

Ajju: There are many big actors, if you want to be like Ranbir Kapoor or Hritik Roshan and enter into Bollywoood, you might probably not make it. As Thia said, I would also like to say ‘Be Yourself’. I proudly say that I am Ajju and I would like to get known by this name only.

 

Question (from the audience): I want to ask that you have already achieved a good position as of now so what next?

 

Ajju: When I had started to dance, I didn’t know that I would make it to this position. At times, when a person aims for something and he achieves it, he forgets about making higher aims, to reach to better position. I would suggest to everyone that set smaller goals to reach to the bigger one. Do not go from 0 to 10, go from 0 to 5, then from 5 to 10.

 

Question (from the audience): What is the mark that you would want to achieve now in the next 2-3 years?

 

Thia: Nice question. Now, we want Thajju to be a brand name which everyone knows and I guess me and Ajju believe that we will accomplish this in the next two to three years.

RAHUL SINGH RATHOUR – THINKING OUT CLOUD

rahul
  • First of all, who is RAHUL according to you? How should people reading this know about him?

Hey, This is Rahul Singh Rathour pursuing Bachelor in Journalism and Mass Communication from Amity University, Lucknow.

I am a budding writer learning every next second to come up with something new through my pen that may help you i.e. the reader to feel that YOUR thoughts have been expressed through my pen. In short, let you connect with my words.

  • What made you so keen interested in writing?

Like every teenage guy I have also been through everything. Yes, may be something different from your story but there was a story. I chose the road most traveled but failed. Failure bestowed me with this gift that I started writing. Today, when I look back to my works from the year I started blogging i.e. 2014, I smile. Yes, the smile which says – Seriously, I wrote it. But, I am glad how I developed and evolved learning. Gradually, people started connecting with my words and that is how I found love in writing.

 

 

  • What sets you apart as a writer? Who are your inspiration in this field?

Nowadays, blogging is like a compulsory activity for every teenager. You have been through a heartbreak so let’s start a blog. This is what I have observed. But, the real writing is somewhere being lost in the midst. I also follow the trend from short stories to poems, I also write quotes. But, why to restrict yourself to a genre. I write about everything I see. Everything and anything can give you a story. I just feel it and pen it down. I have few readers on my blog or social network and they are who inspire me to write something they can fall in love with.

 

  • Tell us about THINKING OUT CLOUD. Is there any story behind it?

The reason behind the name I gave to my blog is really kiddish because when I named it, I was one. ‘THINKING OUT CLOUD’ is the blend of the well-known strategy of being different which says ‘Think Out of the Box’ and when the medium of thinking was cloud network. I amalgamated the two and came up with the name – ‘Thinking Out Cloud’. But, now I don’t know why I feel good about this name because it plays an important part in my life. It helps me smile.

  • What is that thing that goes in your mind when you work on your new content? Do you choose them before hand or whatever goes in mind you pen it down?

Telling you how I define the way I write is something difficult. I write anything and everything. There’s no boundaries around me that define my way of writing. Even when I am traveling to some place and the child smiling at me from a corner can give me a story. So, I just live with the moment and express it through my words.

  • Tell us that one thing that people get amaze to know about you because you don’t actually give hints about that?

Something that will amaze you knowing about me is nothing new or special that I have a special ‘Shaklaka Boom Pencil’ that creates the content. But, yeah I don’t express much with the people around me because I preserve those thoughts which help me create a new article for tomorrow. Yeah, everything and anything helps. That’s my strategy.

  • What are your future goals?

Thinking about the ‘Tomorrow’ for me. I am working ahead to help ‘Thinking Out Cloud’ reach a platform which can help readers to find the real content that may help them to cherish their love for writing. Further, I would be using the social media platform to create something new that would surely stand apart with its existence. And, yeah the work is in progress.

  • What does Rahul loves to do when he is not writing or what does he likes to do in his leisure time?

It’s not easy to write without writing. So, I am bibliophile. Reading gives me peace because you can find numerous answers in the books which you would have been looking for since long. So, that’s the reason I look for a book every time I have some leisure time. But, my hobby still counts the same from the teenage list like traveling, photography and the same goes on.

 

PHOTOGRAPHY @ Thinking Out Cloud

 

  • What will you tell young writers and readers of this article? Any words of inspiration that could drive them and fill them with positivity.

I will just suggest the readers of this post that stop writing if you’re writing to show someone. A message to all those broken heart souls around. Start writing for yourself. Don’t construct a boundary of genre around you. Learn and evolve. Everyone is born with a brilliant talent, keep the search on. You will surely find yours.

Thanking you so much DDKABLOG for being a platform which can help us ‘The budding artists’ grow ahead giving a boom to our passion.

SUPPRIYA CHAURASIYA – A GIRL WITH A VISION

Hello! This is Supriya Chaurasia pursuing bachelor’s of Mass Communication and Journalism from Amity University , Lucknow. For me Photography is a love affair with life. When you see things differently, that ultimately becomes your vision.

Ques 1 : How does Photography helps you to seek happiness?

Photography helps me to seek happiness in a way that I get to capture moments and relive them again when I look back at those pictures. It’s like pausing time for a while and that’s what my strength is. Capturing vibrant things gives me a whole other level of satisfaction. I love colours and they bring a smile on my face. It’s because of these colours that everything around seems so beautiful.

Ques 2 : what things you observe before finding your perfect clicks?

‌When I click a picture I actually don’t observe anything in particular, it’s just that I want to show the world that it is actually the simple things that can be so beautiful and lucid. I click anything and everything from lifeless objects to living beings. To me the definition of a perfect click is anything that soothes the eyes and the soul of the observer​, everything around is beautiful it just needs to be presented in a way it has never been presented before. And like it’s said beauty lies in the eyes of holder. I’d like to change it to beauty is redefined through the lens of a photographer.

Ques 3 : Any ideal or inspiration you follow?

‌I am a staunch believer of the fact, the more unique your work the more you stand out of the crowd. Frankly speaking, I do not follow anyone but then I have keenly observed various works and learnt from them. But at the end of the day I try to bring something new for my audience every single time. Because this is what I am passionate about.

Ques 4 : what outlook doodle means to you and what is the story behind this?

‌I still remember the day when I joined Amity, I named my page ‘supriya photography’. And during our first photography class, our faculty made a mockery about all the ‘xyz photography’ pages. That was the exact moment I decided to change my account’s name to ‘outlook_doodle’ and from that day whence this page has given me a lot. It has given me such huge unexpected appreciations which has helped me in improving my work over the time. As it is said first you become a part of it and then it becomes a part of you. The people around me have seen me growing in this due course of time. I still try to put my 100 percent whenever I have my camera in my hand and I’m set for my work. I feel so connected to it and that gives me the motivation to work harder than ever before. It’s this zeal in me that keeps me going and I hope it will always be ignited in me.

Thank you so much DD KA BLOG. I am really thankful for this opportunity. It was so much fun.
