The writer has been gone for four hundred years now. Yet he is among the most talked about and researched individuals all over the globe. The man I am referring to is the Bard of Avon, William Shakespeare. An event commemorating the 400th death anniversary of the Bard was celebrated at Hotel Aauris. Sujoy Prosad Chatterjee and actor Biplab Dasgupta performed and also engaged the audience about the relevance of the works of Shakespeare in today’s time.


Speaking at the event, Sujoy Prosad Chatterjee said “William Shakespeare is very much relevant in today’s time also. Plays like Julius Caesar, Macbeth have much importance in the modern global politics. The fact that so much research is done on this writer and his plays are the backbone of many films only signifies the importance of his writings”.


Actor Biplab Dasgupta who was also present at this occasion said “Shakespeare is among the few dramatists in the world who had a deep understanding of the human mind and human nature. This is the very reason why his characters are so global and fit in any socio-political situation. Characters with features like Machiavellian traits, over-reacher, highly ambitious are found even in today’s time. Hence, one can see the relevance that these characters have”.

Apart from the interaction with the audience, Sujoy Prosad Chatterjee also performed as Lady Macbeth on the occasion.
