What is Teaching Drama?

Mohd Hammad Farooqui: "Drama is the specific mode of fiction represented in performance. It represents various stages and realities of life. It represents art and philosophy of life in various cultures like in Greek, Indian or Chinese culture. It requires creative energy and urge to perform. One has to understand people, their behaviour and various parts of society and human psycology. The enactment of drama in theatre, performed by actors on a stage before an audience, presupposes collaborative modes of production and a collective form of reception. It is spontaneous and a social activity also at the same time as per the theory of the Drama."

How I got into Teaching Drama?

Mohd Hammad Farooqui: "I have done my graduation from DBS PG College, Dehradun and MA from DAV College, Dehradun. I was always interested in plays and theatre and used to write theatre reviews for Hindi ancient plays. After that I decided to perform a play with 10 of my colleagues and did 'Badal Sarkar ka Bhoma' and won best director award from government. I won the same award for consecutive 3 years from 1990 and got into limelight and became famous. I started working as a Hindi teacher in 1994 in the Doon School and became the drama teacher in coming period of time. I made a well known theatre group from Doon School and performed well in various parts of the city and country. I have done 125 dramas in 4 languages for various governmental and non-governmental organisations in various parts of the India."
