Dear Shakespeare : Playing Santa

My dear Billy,
It is that time of the year again when children of all ages and climes and from all walks of life, expect good old Santa Claus to come visiting punctually at midnight on Wednesday, on a beautiful sledge laden with their favourite playthings, and drawn by a pack of tireless reindeers.

Dear Shakespeare : Who needs a facelift?

My dear Billy,
Your hero Hamlet, in one of his flights of temper, rebuked his girlfriend Ophelia, in these words: “God gives you one face and you make yourselves another.” So it was then, so is it now. Changing faces has become a common game indulged in by many young men and women of our time, and of all times, with the help of an over-abundant assortiment of beauty products on the market.

Dear Shakespeare : Sweet fruit of corruption

My dear Billy,
Now that the campaign in view of the coming general elections has been launched, there is one word which the protagonists and antagonists are hurling at each other at very regular intervals: corruption.

Dear Shakespeare : The silent sufferers

My dear Billy,
Several decades ago, one Indian author wrote, “What is there in life except birth and death with suffering in between?” That  indeed, is a very pessimistic view of life, but seeing the way the world is turning in our own days, with the vast amount of suffering inflicted on people by other people, one is apt to lament with Wordsworth at “what man has made of man.”

My dear Billy,
The Holy Bible teaches us that everything happens at a time preset by nature. “To everything there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven.

Dear Shakespeare : Between the lines

My dear Billy,
By far the best readers in any country are those who read between the lines, because between the lines there is nothing but a blank space. On the other hand, I know many books which have bored their readers to death, mostly premature. By God, why should people read at all? It’s such an uncivil, unmannered thing to do.

Dear Shakespeare : Nobel nobility

My dear Billy,
The Nobel Peace Prize this year is shared by two individuals belonging to two neighbouring countries that have been at war at least twice in the past. Malala Yousafzai is a young Pakistani girl of 16, while her fellow Nobel winner Kailash Satyarthi is a Hindu senior citizen of 60.

Dear Shakespeare : The sound of silence

My dear Billy,
The world belongs to the one who can make the loudest noise. Noise pervades the whole atmosphere which God His munificence and wisdom created in all tranquility. There is noise in the air, there is noise on the road, there is noise among neighing neighbours, there is noise at home, there is noise in the factories, offices and other workplaces.

Dear Shakespeare : Whose fault ?

My dear Billy,
Have you noticed the wave of suicides that is sweeping among our young people? One of the latest cases is that of the 12-year old Mahima Joory, and like all those before it, this one has been one case too many. This ex-student of the Hindu Girls College in Curepipe has entangled herself in a reported theft of a cellular phone belonging to one of her classmates.

My dear Billy,
The world celebrated Democracy Day early this week. Democracy is a well-intentioned concept which constantly comes out through politicians’ mouths.
