SKIT or DRAMA or PLAY (Script)
                A script is a piece of writing in the form of drama. It is intended to be performed.
Elements of script:
1.       A title: A script must be given a title apt to the concept or theme. (కథకు తగిన పేరు పెట్టాలి.)
2.       Introduction to the characters: There must be some introduction to the characters in the script who is who.  (Characters పేర్లు కొద్దపాటి వర్ణన ఉండాలి.)
3.       Setting: The setting is the location where the action takes place. (సన్నివేశం జరిగే ప్రాంతపు వర్ణన)
4.       Dialogues: These are the spoken words of the characters.(సంభాషణలు)
5.       Stage directions: These are the instructions to the reader where there is some action without any dialogue or with dialogue and how the characters behave on the stage or what is happening. These are written in brackets only.(కొన్నిసూచనలు పాత్రల కదలికలు హావభావాలు మొదలగునవి)
E.g. Read the following passage carefully.
One day, a courtier entered the court with a glass jar in his hands. “What is there in that jar?” asked the emperor.
“Your Majesty, Mixture of sand and sugar,” replied the courtier.
“What for?” asked Akbar again. “Excuse me, your majesty!” asked the courtier. “We want to test Birbal’s intelligence. We want him to separate each and every grain of sugar from the sand.”
“Look, Birbal, almost every day there is a new challenge before you.”  Akbar smiled and said, “You have to separate the sugar from the sand without dissolving.”
“No problem, your majesty” said Birbal. It’s just a child’s play.
Birbal took the jar and went out of the court. The courtiers followed him. Birbal went to the garden and scattered the sand and sugar mixture on the ground near the trunk of a mango tree.
“Why have you done this?” asked a courtier. “We will know the result by tomorrow,” replied Birbal.
The next day, they went near the mango tree in the garden and found that there were only sand grains lying on the ground. The sugar grains had been carried home by innumerable ants of the nearby ant hill! A few ants could be seen still busy carrying sugar grains to their ant hill.
“But where has all the sugar vanished?” asked the courtier.
“Separated,” whispered Birbal in his ear. All of them laughed.
“If you want to find the sugar, follow the ants into their homes!” said the emperor and all the courtiers began to laugh loudly.
