Critical Note on Camara’s film Dakan

Dakan is one of the movies directed by Guinea director and filmmaker Camara which started debate particularly in the Guinea society and generally in Africa and caught the attention of the whole world especially Europe and America after its initial release days because it raised and asked some very hard and untraditional questions which were not allowed to speak, answer, ask, argue, raise and those questions are about concept and practice of heterogeneity which is predominantly guiding people in the African world, emergence or revelation of homosexuality which was covered hidden before people and the world in Africa and the third question is the dare of Queering Africa. As Beti Ellerson (2005) puts it in the context, “the film revealed and manifested the assurance of black gay identity, both for black Africans who reside in the Western world and black gays who are of African descent”.

Death of Body is the Failure of Mind

The mind is the center of everything that controls the body & senses & instructs them to play various roles. If the body & five senses lose or die, then the mind is the sole responsible for that. It is much like, if the soul slips away or gets spoiled then the heart is to be blamed for that because the heart is the internal center of human existence & the mind is the external center of human existence.

Critical Review of Shakespeare comedy, “A Midsummer Night’s Dream”

William Shakespeare, the acclaimed dramatist of all ages, was born and baptized on 26 April 1564, in Stratford-Upon-Avon, England, and died on 23 April 1616.

Whatever he took for writing, he changed the shape of that thing and create his style and put his taste into that. As Robert Greene acknowledged and wrote for the Shakespeare, “There is an upstart crow, beautified with our feathers, that with his tiger’s heart wrapped in a player’s hide, supposes he is as well able to bombast out a blank verse as the best of you; and being an absolute Johannes factotum, is in his conceit the only Shakespeare-scene in a country”.
