King Lear

Classical Shakespeare’s tragedy depicts the gradual descent into madness of the title character, after he disposes of his kingdom giving bequests to two of his three daughters based on their flattery of him, bringing tragic consequences for all. Derived from the legend of Leir of Britain, a mythologicalpre-Roman Celtic king,

It is a fascinating place, with utmost respect to vernacular architecture, with reverence towards well being of humans, and nature , yet dedicated and focused in fields of performing arts.

Deepam means “light” – which is the name chosen for the school because they want to bring light into the lives of children who are disadvantaged.

Vox pop on Cinema

At Cinema Paradiso, we have a number of people coming to watch the movies where they spend their evenings delightfully. In this conversation with few of the participants, we get to know more about their liking to the cinema and in the end, we ask with a pinch of humor whether it would be good to bring snacks to the cinema, surprisingly most of us would want this place to be clean and kept just as the way it is for the cinema lovers.
