Audience

'World is a stage and we all are actors.', Sara reads to her 8 year old son, Jack.
'If so, who is watching us then?', little Jack asks curiously.
'Definitely we all are; we are actors of some plays and audience of many others. But we  make only a part of the audience, the rest are the directors who stay outside this world watching from far.'
Before she proceeds to read further comes the unexpected from Jack,'Why do they create such stories! It is so painful living such characters! Why can't they write and direct all happy, light hearted stories?'
Pondering for sometime as she had never thought of it,'Well son, they want entertainment, just like we do. We watch a thriller movie because it arouses that curiosity. We watch comedy, we watch horror stories, we watch tragedy though we hate them in real life and so do they.'
What kind of entertainment is watching soppy movies/ shows? It is all so complicated to understand, she says to herself while Jack is deeply engrossed, thinking about what was told to him.

  1. I can watch just about anything as long as it has a happy ending. Kill as many along the way. But I need a happy ending. And thanks for participating in A to Z!

  2. I prefer happy stories, but I can watch a few tear jerkers as well. I really cannot watch scary or horror movies.

  3. Oh, I love all kinds of entertainment that make me laugh, think, or even learn but I do enjoy an occasional teary one.

    1. We enjoy teary movies on screen when it comes to real life we blame the creator or lord of destiny.

  6. I love all kinds of movies. Rarely do I dislike something, but when it happens it is a very strong dislike and disappointment. I would make a terrible critic.

    1. When anything bad happens in reality we blame the creator but I know many who watch movies like Titanic several times...

  7. It is all so complicated, I agree with that. Over time, my taste changed a lot. We want entertainment, but we don't want to play the painful characters, what an irony it is! Well written, Anu.

  9. I'm pretty eclectic with my entertainment, but as a writer, I prefer that there is at least a little bit of tragedy involved. That may sound masochistic, but tragedy and hardship is the only way characters can truly change and grow, so I prefer that as part of my entertainment. Thanks for stopping by my blog! :D

    1. People in general including me are masochistic...that's why many tragic stories and movies are popular and the writers of those are famous too. But my point here is living such life is very painful and we blame those who wrote and directed, whom we call god of destiny.
