Thank you very much to you too respectable sister for the welcome and for the updation of first page (I knew you would have done that before starting to read your response so much as I know you from the posts of SK FC1). You have kept this forum very systematic and organized. Utilizing the technology and features to the fullest. Orkut has got this limitation that older posts can't be edited or re arranged and if any member deletes his profile then threads created by him/her and posts get deleted and others' response lack context of the reference. Also when profile names are changed, the response reference and the previous post name don't match. I don't know about IF yet in that but hurrey!!! I have successfully learned how to reply to a specific post. I just clicked by guesswork on Quote button to reply to sister lola and you and it worked at first trial.
Thank you very much for going through the orkut communities so immediately. I would hope/request you and lola to send me the link of your orkut profile or add request some day whenever you feel free and appropriate to do so. As sister lola observed, I find lack of support over there in the communities in terms of participation but I continued it as I was not aware about this site. I continued it since I started it and found very user friendly. Had I come in touch with this site earlier or decided to post earlier, it would have been much greater. But better late than never. Thanks to Kushal (flashykush), the member of SK FC1 who is my common friend here and on orkut. He is a big Mahabharat fan since childhood and now a giant fan of Ramayan too. He gave me the link of this forum. And I have already posted in orkut communities of Shri Krishna and Ramayan the link of these forums a few days ago in threads named 'Pictures/wallpapers'. I hope I haven't missed any link posted over there. I also suggested my friend on orkut through the communities - sister Debipriya - to go through these forums. She initially started solo participation in SK orkut community and became my friend through BRC MB community. She also is going through currently with me the first fanclub of SK mainly to enjoy the pictures uploaded initially (Myself including written contents).
Ramanand Sagar is my childhood hero and his devotion is my inspiration. I even had presentation during my MBA on 'Ramanand Sagar - a great entrepreneur' in our subject of 'Entrepreneurship Development' in which I had one by one presented all his qualities as an entrepreneur relating them with the theory books. So it is my great great great great pleasure to find friends alike. I will try my best to find my time to read the contents and also to post whenever appropriate.
I had one comment regarding posts of yours in SK FC1 regarding special effects (technology) of BRC creation vs special effects of RS creations. Even I used to think earlier that special effects of MB are better than Ramayan or SK. But by reflecting over it, I changed my opinion. I think we sometimes mix up between special effects and costumes & set up. You yourself are the expert of technology creations none can understand better. In my opinion, special effects (Computer and camera trikcs) of Ramayan are better than MB. There are very rare occasions in MB to use them. For example, Bhishma/Ganga going inside and coming out of the river walking, Bhim lifting Nakul-Sahdev-Kunti, Hidimb-Hidimba-Ghatotkach-Hanumanji growing & shrinking (And Bhim standing beside them), Arjun arranging water from the earth for Bhishma. Special effects in all these scenes look pathetic and easily caught. Other rare incidents are Kaaliya daman, Govardhan dhaaran, Dhobi's killing in Mathura, Kans's killing, Shishupal-Jaydrath-Karna's head cut, Vishwaroop scene and Virat darshan. They are alright. In Ramayan, they had to use such effects plenty of time for Hanumanji, Indrajeet and others. Numerous uncountable occasions. And they are not always caught & good in terms of quality. Even relatively inferior effect of 'Kandhe par dou veer bitha kar' is better than 'Mata aru laghu bhraat do chale utha kar Bheem'. In Viratdarshan, Arjun seems to be sitting behind the Viratswaroop and there is empty space around virat swaroop and we can see the battlefield also. Appearance and disappearance in Ramayan is also smooth and gradual (like transition effect of slide animation) whereas in MB, Shiv appearing in front of Arjun, Arjun's chariot appearing before Uttar etc is sudden with a strong sound. Though arrows (Divyaastras) appearing in hands or on the bow are sudden in both serials. I think BRC's MB looked better on screen just because of its simplicity and costume/weapons selection.
Regarding music, I like music, dohas, choupais and songs of all the three serials. Songs of MB in BalKrishnaleela part are most classical. But if still someone asks me to compare relatively, background music, song lyrics, devotional impact, just everything in Sagar's creations is better than any other creation in the world due to unmatchable Ravindra Jain in his genuine emotions and expressive voice. Amazing synergy was there between great Dr RS and RJ. Great synchronization, great noble objective of their creations and great great great devotion for Shri Hari and even for Lord Shiv and Parvati (all forms of Gods of Hinduism and their harmonized way of viewing them and bundle of research of Dr Sagar of all the Hindu scriptures not just epics).
Looking forward to contribute soon.
Jai Shri Krishna. Jai Shri Ram.
