How I celebrated My Valentine.

​Valentine’s day 2017

It was a mind blowing day.

Not just cus its a valentine day but also because, I went to ‘Inpsych fest 2017’, A 3 days seminar on various subjects related to Psychology. At Pune university, arranged by Dept. Of Psychology.

I went to first half yesterday and watched Screening of a psychology based movie, ‘The Machinist’, it is a 2004 psychological thriller film directed by Brad Anderson and written by Scott Kosar. Starring Christian Bale & Jennifer Jason Leigh. The film was about Trevor Reznik (Bale), a machinist whose insomnia and psychological problems lead to a serious workplace accident involving a co-worker. And how after Reznik is fired, he goes into a downward spiral of paranoia and delusion. Very well plotted and very well executed too.

Today’s day started with the talk on ‘Abnormal Psychology’ by Mr. Achyut Godbole & followed with Mrs. Nilambari Joshi who guided us about how studies on Human Psychology came into the picture starting from ancient time of treatment given to patients including shock therapy to now having long consulting sessions over patient’s mental state and curing them in a systematic manner. Nilambari Joshi guided us about how addiction leads to depression and also emphasised on not falling prey to mob mentality.

Later, Mrs. khushbu Shah spoke about Parapsychology. Which actually was a bit confusing session but her few aspects about hypnosis & hypnotism were intresting.

After lunch and had few amazing homemade stuffs (Boiled Berr n so..) shared by some psychology students from our group. 

I went to gift a bottle of ‘Blood’, its Valentine’s day after all. The bloid donation camp was organised by the fest people only.

Later in the evening we attended one more interesting seminar on ‘Non Violent Communication’ by Mrs. Reena Ginwala. Her points about empathetic and sympathetic behavior was really appreciative.

Over all it was an amazing experience to be there in a college campus after so many years, also last but not the least made few friends. Specially, I would love to mention about Nutan Jadhav, what a lovely girl. She had done Cynical Psychology. And now practicing as an Intern in Mumbai.

  1. Some of these lectures and Seminars are mind-blowing. Some of the things you are told are over-head transmission and most of it you already knew. But over-all it is a wonderful experience. I too attended 2/3 Seminars on Official matters at JNU New Delhi and apart from the lectures I enjoyed the lunches most as the food was being provided by Qutab Hotel in the 80’s. And of course the interaction with the lecturers was very enjoyable.
