(from the Indian Express, 12/26.)

. . . [Satyadev Dubey], The Padma Bhushan awardee, has been one of the most prominent visionaries of modern Indian theatre. He dabbled in almost all aspects of theatre — acting, direction and writing — before devoting most of his time in training young theatre enthusiasts. On a regular evening at Prithvi Theatre’s cafe, he used to interact with actors and writers over sulemani chai. Playwright-director Manav Kaul, who trained under him as an actor, said, “Dubeyji’s contribution to Indian theatre in immense. In the past 50 years, every decade has a story to narrate about his theatrical work and evolution as a theatre visionary and guru.”
