Gaurav Karmakar- Talks about his time as part of the first batch of the One Year Certificate Course

Exhilarating!!! To put it simply, that is the first word that comes to my mind when I look back at the past one year, the year of my studies at “The Drama School Mumbai”. Each and every moment has offered me some new food for thought or something new to learn. The superb design of the course has helped even me, an IT professional earlier, to make a steady and strong transformation over the duration. The 5 months of intensive practical classroom training, with every week concluding with a…

When you’re firing on all cylinders and slowly losing steam,…
