Reading Shakespeare

  William Shakespeare's work revolves around love, life, failure, conflict and companionship. No wonder he is hailed as one of the greatest poet and writer of all times.

The play 'Romeo Juliet' has a feeling of love and desire while the theme of love, humanity, sacrifice and companionship is permanent. It is the play where the Juliet character desires to be with her love Romeo. Juliet's feelings and promises, made for love is "sacrifice".

The word failure is such a big gulf inlife for Romeo and Juliet from where they constantly try to escape. This love has no end. This crying has no end. There is no solution except to get emotionally close and drop tears incessantly. Romeo and Juliet fell instantly in love with each other.

The meaning of the word 'love' is not only meant to be read, written and spoke but also to be understood as having a purpose like to imagine and preserve the way Romeo and Juliet did. The word preserve should be understood with some caution because if one imagines it superficially then it depicts more pain than happiness.

Romeo and Juliet is a tragic play written by William Shakespeare early in his career as a writer. It is essentially about two teenage star-crossed lovers whose deaths ultimately unite their feuding households. It was among Shakespeare's most popular play during his life and along with Hamlet, is one of the most frequently performed play. Today, the title characters are regarded as archetypal young lovers.

According to the Wikipedia, the year 1600 to about 1608 are often labelled as Shakespeare's "tragic period" of writings as during that period, he mostly wrote tragedies, and from about 1608 to 1613, mainly tragicomedies, also called as romances.

The background and setting of Romeo Juliet is beautiful and painfully honest. It also shows, how a love relationship begins, grows and ends. Juliet compares her love with her life of passion, emotions, and sacrifice. Juliet only needs Romeo's eternal love to survive.

Love can bind hearts. What a thrilling sensation! Shakespeare shows how gradually his characters get dismantled every moment and then later unite. In an attempt to translate life into a rhythm, Shakespeare always used beautiful words.

It is true that there is so much sorrow in our lives. The meaning of living is to search for love and companionship and in this emotional moment, I am searching for equality even though there is so much inequality in us. Reading another Romeo Juliet, Julius Caesar or Macbeth is more joy than I can imagine. These days I have not been able to do any special work except read and re-read Shakespeare.

Everywhere there is frustration, sadness and gloom, but here I am reading Shakespeare and enjoying every bit of it.

Live performance feat. Mahatma Gandhi's original voice

Like to tell you about my experience performing the "Gandhi Program" multi media live performance feat. Mahatma Gandhi's original voice and original film sequencesat the Music 4 Peace concert in the Himalaya in Nepal.The concert was on Gandhi's Birthday after the war in Nepal, so I was not sure if Gandhi's message of Peace was welcomed (because India is like Nepal's big brother and competitor...) but we got the permission to do the concert and the Nepali audience was welcoming Gandhi's message of tolerance and peace.In the live video you can see a poor street boy (there are many street kids in the Kathmandu valley), he came to sit on the stage and wile listening to the "Gandhi Program" he was falling to sleep. This touched my as I imagined that he was feeling home wile listening to my music.The Gandhi ProgramA special multi media performance using unreleased archival audio and video footage of Mahatma Gandhi. This Program comes with the blessing of Dr. Arun Gandhi, co-founder of the International Institute for Non-Violence and grandson of the late Mahatma Gandhi. 1001 Ways lunched the Gandhi Tour with the “Gandhi Program” at Earthdance Peace Festival in California.http://www.1001ways.ch/Media/1001WaysGandhi-Programm2015new.pdf1001 Ways world music projecthttp://www.1001ways.chSee More
