One of the eight forms of India's classical dances, Kathak, meaning “story teller,” originated in Uttar Pradesh, a state in northern India, and there are references to this dance form in sources dating from the third and fourth centuries B.C. Kathak dance, today characterized by fast, rhythmic footwork, became sophisticated court entertainment with the advent of Mogul culture in northern India.
We cannot keep thieves from looking in at our windows, but we need not give them Entertainment with open doors.thomas adam
We like to have a point of view in our stories, not an obvious moral, but a worthwhile theme. ...All we are trying to do is give the public good Entertainment. That is all they want.walt disney
For the mere purpose of Entertainment and the excitement of wonder, a display of brilliant electric experiments, even when performed in the most promiscuous and confused order, never fail to afford ample gratification to the curiosity. The studious observer, however, whose business is to inquire into the true beauties of the science, requires the most judicious arrangement of the phenomena that can possibly be devised, in order to facilitate his acquaintance with them, and with the laws by which they are displayed and associated with each other.william sturgeon
It's not often that I would recommend reading a World Intellectual Property Organization legal brief for its Entertainment value, but today is going to be an exception.
Entertainment and learning are not opposites; Entertainment may be the most effective mode of learning.herbert marcuse
What is art is not likely to be decided for decades or longer after the work has been producedand then is often redecidedso we must not think badly if we regard literature as Entertainment rather than as transcendent enlightenment.Richard Condon
Americarather, the United Statesseems to me to be the Jewamong the nations. It is resourceful, adaptable, maligned, envied, feared, imposed upon. It is warm- hearted, overfriendly; quick-witted, lavish, colorful; given to extravagant speech and gestures; its people are travellers and wanderers by nature, moving, shifting, restless; swarming in Fords, in ocean liners; craving Entertainment; volatile.Edna Ferber
This day showed us that we are all completely voyeurs greedy for thrilling Entertainment no matter if this is real or not.uwe boll
Twenty-eight years ago, I created my first game on an Apple II in my bedroom closet at a time when the interactive Entertainment industry was taking its first baby steps. Today the games business has grown to a multi-billion dollar industry and we are just at the tip of the iceberg. I'm thrilled to have been a part of this successful journey and I'm extremely honored by the Academy's Hall of Fame induction.richard garriott
Supermarket tabloids and celebrity gossip shows are not just innocently shallow Entertainment, but a fundamental part of a much larger movement that involves apathy, greed and hierarchy. Celebrity doesn’t have anything to do with art or craft. It’s about being rich and thinking that you’re better than everybody else.joseph gordon levitt
I searched the FM band but there was nothing besides other pious pleaders, and they didn't come in too well. The AM band offered about the same thing, only with worse reception, nothing remotely describable as news, and no music because commercial Entertainment as we knew it was no more, and its handmaiden, advertising had gone with it.james howard kunstler
Japan is very much a TV-centred Entertainment industry. So when you talk about big stars in Japan, generally they are people who are on television. I work mostly in movies.chiaki kuriyama
I’m a movie star. Can I talk to my Entertainment lawyer?natasha lyonne
Why westerns get segregated into a genre in Hollywood, I don't know... It's just good Entertainment.tom selleck
The analysis of character is the highest human Entertainment.Isaac Bashevis Singer
Human beings today ... are surrounded by huge institutions we can never penetrate: the City [London's Wall Street], the banking system, political and advertising conglomerates, vast Entertainment enterprises. They've made themselves user friendly, but they define the tastes to which we conform. They're rather subtle, subservient tyrants, but no less sinister for that.j. g. ballard
It's mind-boggling to consider that movies this bad are actually committed to film. The poor quality of The Pest in almost every category humor, intelligence, creativity, and just plain Entertainment value ranks it somewhere between a bad infomercial and a local cable newscast. Rarely do I consider the act of seeing a movie to be a chore, but this kind of experience is the exception - Directed By Paul Miller.james berardinelli
He is a prophet and not a poet and therefore his Koran is to be seen as Divine Law , and not as a book of a human being made for education or Entertainment.
The more we learn of the true nature of non-human animals, especially those with complex brains and corresponding complex social behavior, the more ethical concerns are raised regarding their use in the service of man whether this be in Entertainment, as "pets," for food, in research laboratories, or any of the other uses to which we subject them.jane goodall
This was part of Corporation 9592’s strategy; they had hired psychologists, invested millions in a project to sabotage movies yes, the entire medium of cinema to get their customers/players/addicts into a state of mind where they simply could not focus on a two-hour-long chunk of filmed Entertainment without alarm bells going off in their medullas telling them that they needed to log on to T’Rain and see what they were missing.neal stephenson
The Information age is well upon us in seven major fields learning, diagnostics, management, physical planning, finance, Entertainment and communication.
Hollywood no longer offers Entertainment. Instead, activism has replaced acting, and sermons have supplanted stories. Instead of a good yarn, you get a yawn.
Children's literature cannot be created without a close attachment with the children and they should be given moral education through Entertainment.
Wherever applause breaks out in the liturgy because of some human achievement, it is a sure sign that the essence of liturgy has totally disappeared and been replaced by a kind of religious Entertainment. Such attraction fades quickly - it cannot compete in the market of leisure pursuits, incorporating as it increasingly does various forms of religious titillation.
We cannot keep thieves from looking in at our windows, but we need not give them Entertainment with open doors.
