The Importance of Entertainment in Modern Times


In an era where everyone is busy chasing after their next promotion, and the stress of work can lead to depression and other serious illnesses. It is important for people to have entertainent in their life so that they can spend time with their friends and family and enjoy the moments that they have.

Entertainments may have a serious purpose, as in ceremonies or religious festivals, or they may be a form of satire or critique. But they can also be pure entertainment, as in the stories of Scheherazade from the Persian professional storytelling tradition, which have inspired retellings by composers Rimsky-Korsakov and Ravel, film director Pasolini and innovative video games. Entertainment evolves and can be adapted to any scale, from a private individual selecting an amusement from a now vast range of pre-recorded products; through a party with the right food, music and dance; up to performances for thousands and even global audiences.
