“A large part of why I was inclined to the arts is because academics never interested me. I wasn’t one for books, and practicals were my favorite. So, when I went to the Nation School of Drama (NSD), I was glad that it’s good riddance from books and hardcore studying. NSD has a huge library.

A semester later, I was back to being surrounded by books of modern Indian drama and traditional Indian drama, amongst others. In NSD, we managed because the equal emphasis was given on practicals and theory. Practicals included staging shows, which always piqued my interest. Books were deemed boring,” Tripathi said.

Actor Pankaj Tripathi continued: “Today, almost 16 years later, I feel I enjoy theory more than I did before. Now when I look back, I feel those books have been instrumental in strengthening my craft. For an actor, books are as important as practicals. I don’t have to give exams, so it lures me to read books on honing my craft.

I feel the need to read up as much as possible about acting techniques to stay on my toes. I revisit the world of great theatre pundits like Chekov and Brecht to make sure that I have my groundwork in place. Of the Indian books, I constantly read ‘Indian Method In Acting’ by theatre director Prasanna. It’s a beautiful book that I have gifted to many of my peers, and I feel it’s the kind of study material that enriches your work.” (IANS)
