About the Author
Kalidasa us one of the greatest classical Sanskrit poets and dramatists of ancient India, but very little known about his life and time. The writing of Kalidasa reveal that he was a pious Brahmana of Ujjain, and had acquired a knowledge of the various branches Brahmanical learning. His versatile genius, his acquaintance with court etiquette, his shrewdness, his modesty, not without a due sense of self-respect, and his poetic talent are very well reflected in all his works, which are: Malavikagnimita, Vikramorvasiya, Abhijnana-Sakuntala (dramas) and poems like Raghuvamsa, Kumarasambhava and Meghaduta. Both in drama and Poetry, Kalidasa stands not only unsurpassed but even unrivalled.
