About the Book

The Kadambari is one of the best romantic fictions of 7th Century by Banabhatta. An imaginative romantic story of love, technically in the ‘Katha’ from, the novel transcends the bounds of mortal existence and moves through three lives till the deep and passionate love finally attains its desired fulfillment. In this marvelous texture the world of human beings, animals and birds all merge together, as do human beings, animals and birds all merge together, as do human, semidivine and divine characters; and the earth and the heavens combine in the universal bond of love that defies death and continue in the next birth, thus holding the entire creation together. It is these unique qualities of the heart and of faith that distinguishes this classic of Bana from the usual love romances in other languages and bestow on it an universality that no age an dim it.
