DRAMA Let's See What We Have Here...
The seeds of the ancient dramas are found in the Rig Veda. Viz. Pururava - Urvashi, Yama-Yami, Indra-Indrani, Sarma-Pani and Ushas Suktas. Indian Drama is one of the oldest in the world. By the mid-A.D. 300's, flourishing darma in the Sanskrit language had developed. In technique, Sanskrit plays resembled epic poems. Each play was organized around one of nine RASAS (mood - sentiments). The goal was to produce harmony, so authors avoided clashing moods and all these plays ended happily. The dramas were written on the basis of the epics and puranas. So people found much interest in the dramas. Acharya Bharat is the founder of the Indian dramaturgy. So he said that Drama is the fifth Veda. Natya Shastra states mainly NATA, NATI, Dance, Music, Instrument, Dialogue, Plot and the Stage. The imitation is the soul of the drama.

Most often students of English make a second-level choice for reading prose pieces and stories. They are seized with the idea that poetry, drama and novel are cornerstones of creative writing; the rest is dross or marginal. This notion needs to be corrected. Stories and prose writings are also significant units of literary activities. In a short space demanding less time, they offer prisms of reality, treasures of ideas and streams of entertainment. This anthology is not to be claimed as...

Raja-Cekhara has been highly esteemed for his proficiency in the Prakrit. This volume presents the first critical edition of the only Prakrit Drama extant, for here none of the characters speak Sanskrit.

It abounds in material which may well engage the attention of the student of Antiquities and Folk-lore. The...
