Abstract: Limits are agents employed to mark off one unit from the other in tangible as well as intangible life areas. The Indian equivalent could be maryada. Borders are the physical, external, and perceivable divisions operating naturally in the tangible world. The Indian equivalent is seema. And boundaries are the notional (and not national) admissions by individuals or cultural groups of having exhausted possibilities and potentialities in the selected life area. Boundary is without exaggeration. The story of human culture is a tale being told by boundaries. To understand a culture a similar strategy of focusing attention on boundaries helps in understanding human nature. This paper focus on limits , borders and boundaries in context of performance like music dance and drama.
