Life in third world is covered by an enormous problem. here we have no destination for life and everything. In our mind we always make a lot of paradoxical terms. We have a lot of dreams but we are not able to materialize it in time but we always try hardly even we know that it is not possible for us. Sometime we succeed and several times we lose everything. As a passenger of a paradoxical journey, I have some self analysis in this work. We have a folk joke, “When you hang a carrot in front of the nose , Donkey must start to run”. I transformed it by my criticisms, because I need to mean something personal matter by the performance which represent the present mental condition of the youth in heir.

 

Look at me and reflect upon yourself

 
It is the same culture that people are still practicing. They are carrying on a legacy but the religious convictions have now become a dogma. The cultural stagnation manifests in the artifacts that people here sell. They are copying the work ……… repeatedly, as if there creativity has been stiffed by this weight of history.
The frustration and the pain of this legacy are apparent in the eyes of the youth here. They are entrenched in there own history and seeing them, I too feel sad. I want to represent their feelings in my performance, and for this reason my title is ‘Look At Me And Reflect Upon Your Self.
