Yavanika or curtain was introduced in Indian theatre by which of the following?

(1) Shakas 

(2) Parthians

(3) Greeks 

(4) Kushans

Answer: (3) The most interesting term in Indian drama with Greek connotation is yavanika, which means a stage curtain. For the first time in Panini’s grammar, there is a reference to Yavana and Yavanani writing.
However, the theory is not only erroneous but ridiculous because there is no curtain in the Greek drama and also there is no word “yavanika” in Sanskrit language. There is Yavani meaning Greek woman.
