Can sadness be considered as entertainment? I think so. We cry when we see tragic scenes on screen , certain books leaves us teary-eyed and we listen to sad songs. Old Indian movies contained many sad songs, we actually call them melodious music. Unable to sleep or plain tiredness, just listening to these songs puts one in a relaxed state of mind. Relaxation in melancholy? We don't stop reading the book even if it makes us cry. Sometimes the pain that we feel in theatre can be so intense and it lingers for quite some time. Even though we know its only a book or a film, a work of fiction, the pain and sadness felt feels so real. Is this pursuit of sadness?
