It does paint a very gory picture when you read the whole of the play - each one to its own with so much revenge to take on.

Re: Aba

The more complex they are the more challenging I find them. The intrigue too is so compelling, even when they repel.Thank you so much for your thoughtful comment, very aptly said.

Aba

So well told. Such a complex weave here. There is a human rawness, perhaps ironically, to the story/play which leaves us curious, repelled yet compelled, to read/watch. Justice, curses, good and evil, judgments, retribution, moral compasses - none change over time, only our perception of them occasionally. Good points to think on, Aba. Very good points.

Re: Kabu

In terms of all that are bad and worse, man has not progressed a whit over centuries and it is likely to remain so over the future ages too. That is the saddest part.

Re: Sadly, sexual abuse & incest is at the root of much anger in our societies

Hi UKUSA, you're such a dear one, so endearing comments you give, 'O Bengali poet', and yes I am a Tagore fan. He is a poet with the highest number of wonderful poetries in the world, 6000 of them, covering the entire span of human emotions. He brings tears on almost all and every reader. Thank you so much UKUSA. And I see you have read a lot of world literatures. Very impressive:) xoxo

Treachery murder, sexual incense, property rights dismissed, slavery...Oh goodness me, everything one can find today still. 4000 years of learning nothing.
