As You Like It

DRAMATIS PERSONÆ

SCENE III. The forest.

Song.
It was a lover and his lass,

With a hey, and a ho, and a hey nonino,

That o’er the green corn-field did pass

In the spring time, the only pretty ring time,

When birds do sing, hey ding a ding, ding:

Sweet lovers love the spring.

Between the acres of the rye,

With a hey, and a ho, and a hey nonino

These pretty country folks would lie,

In spring time, & c.

This carol they began that hour,

With a hey, and a ho, and a hey nonino,

How that a life was but a flower

In spring time, & c.

And therefore take the present time,

With a hey, and a ho, and a hey nonino;

For love is crowned with the prime

In spring time, & c.

Touch. Truly, young gentlemen, though

there was no great matter in the ditty, yet

the note was very untuneable.

Page You are deceived, sir: we kept

time, we lost not our time.

Touch. By my troth, yes; I count it but

time lost to hear such a foolish song. God

be wi’ you; and God mend your voices!

Come, Audrey.

Exeunt

SCENE IV. The forest.

Enter DUKE SENIOR, AMIENS, JAQUES, ORLANDO, OLIVER, and CEL.

Duke Sen. Dost thou believe, Orlando, that

the boy

Can do all this that he hath promised?

Orl. I sometimes do believe, and sometimes

do not; As those that fear they hope, and

know they fear.

Enter ROSALIND, SILVIUS, and PHEBE

Ros. Patience once more, whiles our

compact is urged: You say, if I bring in your

Rosalind. You will bestow her on Orlando

here?

Duke Sen. That would I, had I kingdoms

to give with her.

Ros. And you say, you will have her, when

I bring her?

Orl. That would I, were I of all kingdoms king.

Ros. You say, you’ll marry me, if I be willing?

Phebe.

That will I, should I die the hour after.

Ros. But if you do refuse to marry me,

You’ll give yourself to this most faithful

shepherd?

Phebe. So is the bargain.

Ros. You say, that you’ll have Phebe, if

she will?

Sil. Though to have her and death were

both one thing.

Ros. I have promised to make all this

matter even.

Keep you your word, O duke, to give your

daughter; You yours, Orlando, to receive

his daughter: Keep your word, Phebe,

that you’ll marry me, Or else refusing me,

to wed this shepherd: Keep your word,

Silvius, that you’ll marry her. If she refuse

me: and from hence I go, To make these

doubts all even.

Exeunt Rosalind and CEL.

Duke Sen.

I do remember in this shepherd boy

Some lively touches of my daughter’s

favour.

Orl. My lord, the first time that I ever

saw him Methought he was a brother

to your daughter: But, my good lord,

this boy is forest-born, And hath been

tutor’d in the rudiments Of many desperate

studies by his uncle, Whom he reports

to be a great magician, Obscured in the circle

of this forest.

“As You Like It”


Taken from the Merriam-Webster’s Encyclopedia of World Religions

Here is a dose of daily religion from A to Z.

Today’s religious topic is as follows:

“Banda Singh Bahadur”, (b. 1670, Punch, India—d. June 1716, Delhi), in SIKHISM, first military leader to wage an offensive war against the Mughal rulers of India, thereby temporarily extending Sikh territory. Information about Banda Singh’s early life is scant. In his early life, he became a Vaisnava ascetic. In 1708, GURU GOBIND SINGH met him in Nanded, a town on the banks of the Godavari River in southern India, Singh. The Guru sent Banda Singh to the Punjab with the specific directive that he organize the Sikhs. It was under his command that they capture Sirhind, the most powerful Mughal garrison between Delhi and Lahore, in 1710.

Banda Singh established his capital in nearby Mukhilspur (c”city of the purified”), created an official seal, and struck new coins. The inscriptions on the seal and the coins indicate that Banda Singh regarded ultimate authority as being vested with God and the Gurus. Some years later Mughal forces ousted Banda Singh from the Sirhind area, chased his army into the Shivalik hills, and eventually captured him in the Gurdaspur area. Along with several hundred men, Banda Singh was taken to Delhi, where he was executed.

The 17th-century writer Banārasīdās casts his poem ‘Navarasa’ on the waters of the river Gomati after he rediscovers the Jain beliefs of his family. His military achievements earned him the epithet Bahadur (“brave”), and embezzled on the Sikh imagination that it was the prerogative of the Khalsa Sikh to rule the Pujab.
