Creating an uproar on social media: “Roars of color” – an ode to the oppressed by Sohan Roy


Goa KHabar:During the time, when pandemics and natural disasters are at our doorstep taking a toll on our lives, some humans have chosen to turn a blind eye to all that and take up the role of dutiful racists. The entire world is frothed up with rage witnessing how George Floyd’s fatality got determined merely by his skin color. Protesting against the atrocities the man faced and how cruelly his life was taken, today the internet is filled with blaring uproars of “I can’t breathe” slogans and hashtags like #blacklivesmatter.

Poet and Hollywood director,  Sohan Roy, took a stance and penned down his latest Poem, “Roars of Color,” originally written in an Indian Language. It is a powerful poem exhibiting exemplary solidarity with all those who face oppression in the name of their skin color. It is as powerful and heart-piercing as a slogan with the potential to move mountains. His verses are like a fatal blow questioning humanity in us, encouraging to look within rather than judging a book by its cover.

Sohan Roy, C.E.O of U.A.E based Aries Group of Companies, is a compassionate person concerned about fellow beings and has worked relentlessly in numerous ways to help the needy.  Choosing current affairs as a topic, he has been writing and releasing haikus daily, for the past two and half years in a 4-line Poem based Internet Troll or “Poetroll” form along with suiting graphics and music. He has written about 900 Poetrolls that stands out in the postmodern literary Field. His aspiration has always been beyond monetary achievements and has relentlessly worked for the progress of our nation.

His “Roars of Color” is one such effort that can represent India’s solidarity extended towards any citizen facing the terrors of racial discrimination. He also played a significant role in bridging the gap India had with the most reputed Oscar Awards. Distributed by Warner Bros, his debut Hollywood movie ‘DAM999’ contended for the Oscars and received 5 selections in 3 categories. It was the first movie from India to compete under the mainstream category, instead of the International Language category at the Oscars.
