Drama in Delhi
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.
