The Indian stage from its beginnings to the present in each linking volumes such us Tagore theatre, Indian - English theatre, regional theatres, folk theatres, theatrical movements, theatre institutions and so on. The encyclopaedia promises to be a landmark work, bringing together the varied subject areas, concerns of those who seek so understand Indian theatre in its depth and breadth, and "represent" it to coming generations. The present volume quickly establishes itself as the standard one volume resource on 'Bhasa'--the first regular dramatist of ancient Indian.
