Sense and Sensitivity in the Trump Era

by Nikita-Kiran Singh If I could describe the political events that have transpired in the past week in one word, it would be irony.  The irony of Trump being hailed as “someone who tells it like it is” followed by post-election backpedaling suggesting “he never really meant it when he said all those things about Mexicans, Muslims, and women”; the irony of Democrats being asked to extend kindness … Continue reading Sense and Sensitivity in the Trump Era

Thank You for a Wanderful Year | By Nikita-Kiran Singh

Of all the emotions, nostalgia may be one of the most multifaceted – it can create a strange combination of happiness and sadness, lull you into a sense of un-belonging, or even make you long for a time mistaken to be ideal.  I think that in its best form, nostalgia empowers you to be forward-looking and inspires reflection on how you’ve grown; this is how I feel … Continue reading Thank You for a Wanderful Year | By Nikita-Kiran Singh

Review: ‘Mary Poppins’ by Festival Players | By Nikita-Kiran Singh

Many of us remember Mary Poppins as a delightful treat from our childhood, the seemingly archetypal British nanny who not-so-quintessentially blurs the line between reality and fantasy.  Festival Players’ production celebrates this beloved character while artfully exploring meaningful social commentaries, bringing to light how this classic’s themes remain relevant today.  Given author P.L. Travers’ discontent with the 1964 Disney film, the musical produced by Cameron … Continue reading Review: ‘Mary Poppins’ by Festival Players | By Nikita-Kiran Singh
