The Performer 





John committed suicide after his expulsion from a reputed band due to his arrogant nature resulted in misfortunes for his family.

His son Albert was crude in knowledge of music but started performing in bars and restaurant to support living of his mother and younger sister.

His hard work, talent and supple behavior soon made him famous in his town.

Tears rolled down from his eyes when he was contacted by the same band for which his father used to play the drum to be their lead performer.

It's our perspective which unites earth surface with sky at the horizon.

It's the circle of life, when one door closes another one opens.
