About the book

India dramatic Art in as old as the Indian Civilization itself. The prehistoric Rigveda mentions of the grand Celestial plays. Bharatmuni, the expert sage on performing arts, gave us the first authoritative treatise on stagecraft. His celebrated Natyashastra is consulted and referred to even today by theatre workers as a text book. The Indian Stage passed through ups and downs during the centuries. The British rule gave the Indian stage an unique opportunity for cross-fertilizing with the European theatre. Calcutta, the first British capital, became the centre of the renewed Drama activity. Bengali's own Folk theatre like Jatra helped to evolve a new form and Style of the stage. The book gives a panoramic view of the Indian stage through the age and its present status in the world of performing Arts today.
