Abstract: Do people have masks? What are these masks? Are you aware of the many masks that you wear? If, yes, then how many of them do you wear? Masks are the different faces that people carry with them to accommodate themselves in different walks of life. There could be infinite types of masks depending on how someone wants people to perceive them. But are they aware of these masks? When all these masks come together, it forms a person who is able to compartmentalise and accommodate at the same time, different expectations of the world around them at any given point. The objective behind this lecture is to unveil these masks using a clown’s perspective.
