On the Wall : Ilusory Irony !

The mention of the word Maya, gets me philosophical !

All of the world is Maya. Thats what i knew. I thought of Maya in great awe, and uttered ‘MAYA’ with an air of respect, and a circle of awe. Until a couple of days back.

‘All of the world is Maya’, i have read in the epics. Everything is but an illusion and everything is taken from HIM, says the Gita.

Realisation that the world has moved on from there, caught me by surprise. Completely. That for sometime, i thought of myself as a lost soul getting off a ship that was moored in the middle of the Indian ocean for a million years !

Actually, this poster sent me scurrying for knowledge.

And i returned with understanding that Maya is the name of an animation software. Aha !

But think of the irony. The poster that advertises to make you an expert in animation, by studying Maya….is stuck on top of another that announces the death anniversary of a gentleman !

Maya ! Huh !

Javas transformation from coffee to software gave didnt excite me. One bit. I hope Maya stays illusory !

  1. I am confused.
    Laugh or To Smile or ….

  2. Haha! Maya’s configuration in animations sting me too, a bit:) But then, if you look at it closer, animations is an illusion… so it can be deduced that Maya’s stayed true to her original form. Some mathematical deduction, that! Right bro?

    Never heard of and at first thought goofy. No wonder who invents such name as software.

    Just see…and here I am spending my life trying to unlearn Maya :))

  5. I can understand! this was big doubt for me, MAC (APPLE Computers) & MAAC (Maya Academy of Advanced Cinematics), few years back i got to know these two are totally separate things.

    Kavi, thanks for the compliment on my new-look!
    I’ve always been in love with the word “Maya”. It just pulled me here!
    P.S. Love the picture from Kala Ghoda on your sidebar! I always thought that all walls shd be painted on with religious icons. That way most people will not ‘relieve’ themselves there!

    Most of the product shots in Advertising are not shot these days. They are done using Maya and the likes. And it looks better than the real. You’ll never get that perfection even if you shoot it.
    eg. Most of the cars in Ford ads/hoardings are created in Maya.
