Demon Slayer: Mugen Train

-Ishaan Deshmukh (Batch of 2020-21)

Ever since the Covid-19 Pandemic struck the globe, we all have been forced to stay inside our homes. Due to this, the cinema/film industry has suffered a lot financially. With many theatres being closed in India and all over the world, most new film releases faced bad luck at the box office and were not able to sell many tickets. One film, however, broke all these restrictions.

Demon Slayer Mugen Train, or as it is called in Japanese, Kimetsuno Yaiba: Mugen Train is a Japanese anime film released on 16th October 2020 in Japan that shattered all previous box office records amid the Covid-19 Pandemic.
Demon Slayer Mugen Train is a direct continuation of the massively successful anime show Demon Slayer season 1 (released in 2019). Season 1 follows Tanjiro Kamado, as he sets off on an intense journey to turn his sister Nezuko, who had turned into a demon, back to a human. The film picks up right from the ending of season 1 and has our protagonist and his friends go against newer and tougher hurdles in their journey while aboard a train.

The story presents itself in a way that is heart-wrenching and satisfying to watch unfold. The film as well as season 1 are animated by studio Ufotable. Though the film has many strong points, such as an astounding soundtrack, I would say the ‘strongest’ of those strong points has to be the animation. I ensure you while watching every scene of this movie, you can feel how much effort has been put into animating it.

If we talk about numbers, the film has excelled in that field as well. Even though it was released in the middle of a pandemic, Demon Slayer Mugen Train managed to earn over a whopping 470 Million US Dollars worldwide (most of it coming from Japan). This makes it the Highest Earning Japanese Film of All Time and the Highest Earning Film of 2020 Worldwide. Following its financial success worldwide, Demon Slayer Mugen Train was finally officially released in Indian theatres on 13th August 2021, though only in select cities such as Delhi.

This must have given you an idea about the scale of popularity of the anime franchise Demon Slayer. A story that is better than a majority of the stories you must have seen in traditional cinema. With the success of this film, it is expected that the popularity chart of Japanese Animation (Anime) is only going to keep rising upwards in India and all over the world.

Thank you

Annual Day 2023

 After a long hiatus due to covid we finally got most activities on track. The Annual Day function is always a big deal for everyone at Abhinav. It has been a tradition my mother started that the Annual Day will be not a Teacher-managed event, but a Student Initiative. Since when I was a teenager, I was part of this and today 10 years after she passed, I still strive to make it work as she would have. After some hesitation, we began working in early January. I wanted to use an outside choreographer just so that teachers will not be burdened. (They are already struggling with post-covid learning difficulties) But then, an outside guy could never do justice to the Abhinav style of doing things. We always keep in mind that the cultural program should be enjoyable to everyone in the audience and at the same time should display as many of the diverse talents that our students have, as possible.  It was a great relief that my G3 students came to the rescue. Almost all of std 9 and many of st

Are Self-Driving Cars Taking Over Humans?

- Arya Dharmadhikari(Std X, Abhinav Vidyalay) The 21st century has played an important role in the advancement of technologies. This development has even revolutionized the Automobile industry. We have developed from fuel-efficient vehicles to Hybrids and EVs and now we are enhancing self-driving vehicles. Tesla, Waymo, Volvo, GM, BMW, Mercedes are among the few companies that have started testing self-driving cars. The leading among them is Waymo, which has developed level 4 autonomy which we will discuss in the next section. So before reaching levels of autonomy we should understand what self-driving cars are and why we require them. What is a self-driving car? A self-driving car (also called an autonomous vehicle) is a car that is competent in driving itself without any human intervention. The car has sensors, cameras, lasers, radars, GPS, LIDAR through which the Artificial Intelligence senses the surrounding environment, this helps the car to navigate on its path and to detect sig

Dark Matter

  ~Anvi Patil(X th A Abhinav Vidyalay) In the universe, there is about 25% of dark matter and 70% of dark energy but only 5% of it is visible. What is Dark Matter? It is a non-luminous material, which holds two galaxies. This cannot be called a black hole because it does not bend light. Then the question arrives, as it is non-luminous, how did we detect it? As it is not visible, scientists have found indirect methods to find more about it. One such method is by using the Fermi Gamma-Ray Space Telescope . Gamma rays are released when two particles of dark matter collide, Fermi telescope can be used to detect this collision. This topic was discovered by Fritz Zwicky in the 1930s, he discovered that galaxies were rotating at a faster rate than usual. A dark region seen in the foreground of a star field. This dark region could be a dark cloud of gases like hydrogen, left over from the formation of our galaxy Dark matter is called ‘dark’ not because it is ‘black’ but because it does not
