Natyashastra is the most detail and elaborate of all treatises on dramatic criticism and acting ever written in any language and is regarded as the oldest surviving text on stagecraft in the world. Written by the great dramatist of ancient India Bharata Natyashastra is reckoned as the poetics of Indian drama. Bharata muni in his Natyashastra demonstrates every aspect of Indian drama whilst covering areas like covers music stage-design make up dance and virtually every aspect of stagecraft. With its kaleidoscopic approach with its wider scope Natyashastra has offered a remarkable dimension to growth and development of Indian classical music dance drama and art. Hence it is certainly not an overstatement to say that Natyashastra indeed laid the cornerstone of the fine arts in India. The commentaries on the Natyashastra are known dating from the sixth or seventh centuries.
