Was Shakespeare really Shakespeare? Did he really write those immortal comedies, tragedies and sonnets? Or, was he mere a shield to hide a great literary mind’s identity and authenticity? Was the ‘Baconian theory’ of doubting Shakespeare’s authorship true or simply hearsay to create literary chaos?
Being a literature student, these questions often jolted my mind with a wild thrust in brains. I always wanted to know the real Shakespeare as, he was, is, and will always remain one of the greatest poets of the world despite all controversies. Was William Shakespeare of Stratford-Upon-Avon, the humble stable boy, wrote those plays with sheer aristocratic attitude? Or, was Shakespeare merely Sir. Francis Bacon’s pseudonym?
‘Me’, the confused literature student, with numerous unanswered questions, always wanted my queries to be resolved. Years later, suddenly one day, I got some relevant answers— courtesy to the idiot box. ‘T was a chilling winter morning or, rather say, night @ 3:30 a.m. when my 5 months old baby was in a frisky mood at those wee hours. While she was busy with her snugglies and squeakies (toys, of course), I simply switched on my idiot-box to save my peace (or piece) of mind.
Being the cheapest medium of entertainment those days, T.V. was the only savior for me that day as the WiFi of my desktop remained switched off at night because my *bossy hubby* used to think it was quite ‘axe-pensive’ those days. 😛 So, I switched on my old buddy, though idiot yet companion in mundane moods. I tuned into Discovery Channel and suddenly found the remedy of my ‘Shakespearean quest’. In that show, I got to know the adequate proof of ‘Baconion theory’ of Shakespeare not being Shakespeare.
They were showing how the original manuscripts written by Sir Francis Bacon were hidden inside a pillar which was situated under the sea bed near somewhere the Mediterranean Sea. I have forgotten the name of that show as it was aired about 16 years back. But that fiction (they claimed it was real) is still etched in my memory. It was such an intriguing show that the dozing mommy even forgot her sleep and her baby both. And suddenly, she fell from the bed. I had to switch off the T.V. and I couldn’t reach up to the conclusion whether it was a fiction or fact. I still regret to switch off my T.V. in the middle of the show as I had no choice left. But if it was to happen in the current times, I could watch the show later to clear my doubts.
It was my transition from Shakespeare to Mommism and from daily soaps of Saas and Bahu’s to Smartphones and WiFi network. And today this could happen with a revolutionary concept called Tata Sky Transfer. It’s a WiFi enabled set-top box which records your favorite T.V. shows and transfers it on your Android or iOS devices or even in your laptop for you to carry it wherever you go and whenever you get the time to watch them.
Tata Sky Transfer makes your entertainment to be ambulant enough to go everywhere and to be versatile enough to be watched on any medium according to your preferences. In short, your entertainment is on-the-move all-the-way on-the-go all the time with Tata Sky Transfer.
Gone are the days when the whole neighborhood used to assemble in our house to watch ‘Hum log’, ‘Buniyaad’, ‘Ramayana’, and later ‘Mahabharat’ on Doordarshan. Even the cable T.V. era of ‘Tara’, ‘Khandaan’, and ‘Kyuki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi’ has also passed away. The set-up boxes are graduating and entering into the sixth generation of mobile entertainment which says record, transfer and carry your entertainment to the next level. Because it’s the era of convenience, comfort and charisma and that’s Tata Sky Transfer.
