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.

My dear Billy,
There’s an old saying that tells us that “A hungry man is an angry man.” In fact, hunger is a most debasing state which induces men and women to commit reprehensible acts which they would never think of committing on a full stomach.

Dear Shakespeare : Moment of greatness

My dear Billy,
Thanks to the live coverage by the MBC of the Parliamentary debates on the Constitution (Declaration of Community) (Temporary Provisions) Bill, I got to listen to most of the speeches of our National Assembly representatives who took the floor.

My dear Billy,
Has it ever occurred to you to marvel at the early morning sun and find inspiration in its golden rays? Or soaked in the rain in wild abandon? Or strolled on the soft sand at the seaside and felt the soothing effect?  As it used to happen with the English poet William Wordsworth, “My heart leaps up with joy whenever I behold a rainbow in the sky.”

Dear Shakespeare : Fast forward

My dear Billy,
“The world is running too fast” is a common, plaintive cry that we get to hear all too often, but the real fact is that we are all caught up in a rat race with no definite end point. We keep running, seldom knowing where exactly we are heading. In the process, we cram the day with a number of unnecessary activities and undertakings.

Dear Shakespeare : Upon my word!

My dear Billy,
I have often wondered why in the beginning there was the word, but always failed to come up with a satisfying answer. Turn wherever I could with my query, there was no explanation. Neither the sages of the East nor the wisdom of the west could quench my thirst.

Dear Shakespeare : Taming the shrew

My dear Billy,
Mr. Philip Li Ching Hum, in his punctured ego and self-admiration, has gratified me with a crop of insult in response to my earlier reaction to one of his texts which had appeared in L’Express daily newspaper.
