Sports and theater have taught me the virtues of hard work, the power of imagination and significance of success. It has always been said how the performing arts is a way of expression, i actually believe it to be much more than that. Its a way of life, Its a knowledge. New people, dynamic zeal and holistic growth in life, theater offers you the lot. I have always believed in the funda of "living and enjoying the current moment' and theater has only made it more resolute for me. Theater has thus allowed me to explore myself and help me realize the the most important things in life.
