Drama in Delhi

Drama is a form of entertainment, where we laugh and shed tears along with the performers. It expresses the mode of fiction mirrored in performance. It can be in the form of stage shows, theater, plays etc. In today's generation most of  these forms of entertainment are taken in a different direction. It now creates awareness about political, social and cultural evilness of a country. There are many classes which can offer you this art of entertaining the public in many style and form. Unaffected by any foreign influence, India  is one of the few countries  which can bluster its indigenous drama. Bharta or Bhasa is the "founder" or "father" of Indian drama.

Indian Drama is the exhibition of unjust  zeal of love which is not considered as staid or aesthetically acceptable; nor ornate  expressions of hate, jealousy, or anger--in fact, nothing sensational or vicious. There are also stock figures, such as the polished courtesan, the jester, the down to earth confidant and friend of the hero. There are also stock comic situations as well as other devices of the stage that are   well known and as popular in India as elsewhere.

With the upcoming years, there has been an increasing demand for these classes- National School of Drama is one of the most renown in India and Delhi.
