LET FREEDOM RING - NOW
Submitted by: G.K. Jayaram
Artist's Project Description: In 2016 I wrote a full-length play titled â€œThe Costume Partyâ€. Set on the evening of 2016 elections the play is about clash of identities â€“ racial, ethnic, generational, National, gender â€“ and ends tragically in Police and vigilante violence. Two characters from this play, Clarence and Bobby are in the present monologue, â€œLet Freedom Ring â€“ Nowâ€. The four years have brought the country to its heels, and Clarencesâ€™ awakening is complete. There is no history as yet to this monologue since I wrote it very recently.
Artist's Bio: I have four decades of international professional experience. I worked as President for a Consulting firm â€“ Princeton Center for Organizational Excellence - in the US for 20 years. I was the first Chairman of Infosys Technologies and Co-Founded Transformation Systems Inc (Transys) â€“ a software firm in Princeton, New Jersey. I won the Monologue Festival, Montclair college of fine Arts, Madison, WI, 2020, â€œThe Choiceâ€ â€“ a full-length play shortlisted for the Sultan Padamsee Award, Bombay, 2018.
