7 November, 2015 opened up new avenues in my life. My school, Don Bosco Liluah and Mozilla together answered all my questions regarding the most interesting word and profession ‘blogging.’ It was an amazing Saturday morning as I participated in the “Firefox Download: The IndUS way” event. This was an excellent initiative no doubt by the IndUS Blogging Community and Mozilla Firefox, who gave us this golden opportunity to understand every tits bits of blogging.
To help us learn and feed our inquisitive minds we had among us Mr. Subhasis Chatterjee, who explained about blogging, its features and technique involved in detail. He was there all through to help us understanding blogging all well as Mozilla’s introduction, use and new updates. It was good to see him answer all our valid and stupid questions with much patience. It was fun altogether.
Every activity involved starting from the very beginning was really interesting. The introduction by The Principle, Father Sunit Kiro followed the first phase of the event- introducing the concept of content writing, creative activities, e-book writing and blogging. IndUs made it very clear that these new world is no less than the conventional professional world of medical and engineering. This really made us think of taking up blogging or content writing as profession. This was a rather new topic introduced to us and we were all glued to Mr. Chatterjee’s words. The initiative of IndUs and its mission was clear to us and according to me the people behind this initiative deserves a standing ovation.
Starting with blogging the event moved on to the next phase where we learnt Mozilla’s new mission. We understood how Mozilla has taken an initiative to bridge the inter-communal space between numerous Indian communities. We were also introduced to the initiative of Mozilla of downloading the browser in 90 distinct dialects. We were also shown and allowed to download the Firefox browser in Hindi. The best part of the entire event is to get free goodies from Mozilla. It is really hard to say which of the two segments were more interesting.
This two hours of fun filled learning process was no doubt very encouraging for our young minds. My heartiest thanks to IndUS and Mozilla, for giving us such a wonderful opportunity to shape our future. The event was like a pathfinder towards selecting our professions in today’s technology driven world.
