Watch the 53 minutes’ worth of Soviet commercials from the 1970s and 1980s,
Ref through BoingBoing : In 1967, Estonia was founded the creative association “Reklamfilm Estonian / Eesti reklaamfilm” – the only one at that time in the Soviet Union studio, specialized in production kinoteleradioreklamy and “representational” commercials on the orders of the enterprises of trade, industry, services and amenities, colleges, vocational schools , traffic police and other organizations in the Soviet Union, this company for the production of television commercials was the work of a new and at that time quite bold. But among Estonian documentary was a very energetic person – Eedu Ojamaa. It was he who was able to implement such a complex idea in the USSR State Committee for Cinematography. “Estonian Reklamfilm” soon became the largest advertising company of the Soviet Union. He released a year nearly 350 commercials, and also created a lot of documentaries. The company has been amended in Leningrad and Moscow and Riga branch of executed orders for the Union. Among the customers were and Finnish companies. Until 1992, the “Estonian Reklamfilm” took more than 6,000 commercials and movies.
It is clear that under socialism, the absence of private ownership and competition television advertising had a slightly different look and pursued a very different purpose. The director, advertisers still did not have the strict limits and constraints, which are now exhibited customers promotional TV program. So they used all their creativity to create a bright memorable quality product.

You have to choose how you will perceive the world. Even if things are dark and scary, how you choose to see them is how you will transform that dark and scary. Life is what you make it – literally.
I know dark & scary things exist. I have no problem looking at them. I also have no problem letting them go. This is the result of many years of inner work and self-reflection. There is no easy way to do it otherwise.
I’ve put the time in. I’ve made the choice to do so. So can you. The ability to be able to see and let go is a reflection of the work you have yet to do on yourself. No one can do this for you. There is no quick fix to your inner worlds. You must travel to them, explore them and see what needs doing/being. It is a commitment to self, and in that commitment is your commitment to others, the planet and the cosmos.

Dikhne me bilkul baisi hi hai, sirf thodi rang dhumil par gai hai…
Chalne me thodi gurrati hai..kyonki ab use koi dekhne wala nahi…

lekin aaj kisi ko uski pratiksha nahi..kyonki Waqt ne uspe dar parat dar dhool bhar diya hai…Ab to woh pehle se jyaada peene bhi lag gai hai…hamara bajaj..bajaj Chetak
People Management; What we learn from the character Don Carelone from movie “The Godfather”; An important attribute I learnt from him was his skill of effective listening, which help him grasp the people’s grievance details in depth. Beside that he was very good at knowledge management ”He used different strokes for different folks” changed his treatment according to the folks he encountered; used the right method for right people and was sharp enough to apply the right techniques to motivate them.
This is an important point that no one should miss and understand that we meet many people in one’s personal life as well as professional life and it is vital to harbor a different approach while dealing with different personality traits. Another personality traits of the Don is his psychotic behavior and the skill of critically evaluate the situation. It is not bad to be psychopath; one gets in depth view of the state of affairs while evaluating the pros and cons of actions and suggestion that people make.
