Ambika Kameshwar

"Why is it necessary to think of holistic development through theatre? Because theatre and life are not apart. Every moment we are playing different roles. If we learn to play the roles, with attention to the roles and live them as roles allotted to us at that moment for the given purpose, we can have a great life. That way, we can remain grounded in our own true self, rather than be lost in the outward manifestation. This, despite being involved in our roles, and performing our part with elan, finesse, while reaping at the same time a lot of joy."
