Description

About the Book:

The Abhijnanasakuntalam is an unparalleled work of the great poet and playwright Kalidasa, the brightest star in the firmament of Indian poetry. No other composition of this poet displays more the richness of poetical genius, the warmth and play of fancy, the profound knowledge of human heart than this masterly production.

The present edition is unique in several essentials. The editor has adopted the most popular and appropriate version of the text. He has put the variants in the footnotes. He has added a short Sanskrit commentary, copious notes, an exhaustive introduction and several useful appendices. The English translation of the text is literal as well as idiomatic.

It is hoped that this edition will meet the long-felt requirement of university students and the general reader alike.

Preface to the Fifth Edition:

The continuous demand for my edition of the Abhijnanasakuntala is a gratifying proof that it has been favorably received by the public. Material changes have been effected in the present (fifth) edition to make it still more useful, particularly to university students who have to read this play as an examination text-book. At the same time care has been taken to preserve its original features, and to include all critical matter that would interest and help the general reader as well. To keep up uniformity with other plays edited by me, the Sanskrit rendering of Prakrit speeches has been here printed as part of the text, the original Prakrit being printed below. The reader will find this method to be of great practical convenience. The various readings also have been given at the foot of each page, the variants of the Bengali Edd. being given together at the end of the text. Some unnecessary matter has been omitted from the com. and some additions made here and there. The English Notes and translation have been thoroughly revised and recast. It is hoped that in the present form the edition will be found increasingly helpful by those for whom it is intended. I am indebted to the editions of Prof. Monier Williams and Prof. Patankar, among others, for much suggestive criticism, although I have had frequent occasions to differ from them. Prof. Ray's Ed. was also useful to me in solving some intricate points of Grammar.

Prefatory Note to the Tenth Edition:

The present edition is reprint of the ninth edition with addition of an extract from the Mahabharata - 'Shakuntalopakhyana' which was omitted in the eight and ninth editions, and an appendix No VI at the end. Some portion in the introduction viz. pages 22 to 38 and 60 to 89, was already included in the 9th edition for help of those who have to study this work of the great poet Kalidasa for their examination. In this way the book is now made uptodate for students and general readers also. In Notes I have substituted the page numbers of the latest edition of the author.

I am thankful to Shri Sundarlal Jain, the publisher, who willingly in-corporated above changes in this edition to bring the work of the author uptodate.

Testimonials

I recieved my Mahavir pendant today. It is wonderful. I was recently in Delhi and as it was a spiritual trip visiting Jain temples in Rajasthan, Agra, Rishikesh and Delhi i did not have the opportunity to shop much. The pendant is beautiful and i shall treasure it. I have attached a picture of me in India. Your country and the people will always be in my heart.

It is always a great pleasure to return to Exotic India with its exquisit artwork, books and other items. As I said several times before, Exotic India is far more than a highly professional Indian online shop; it is in fact an excellent ambassador to the world for the splendour of Indian wisdom and spirituality. I wish a happy and successful New Year 2017 to Exotic India and its employees! You can be very proud of yourself!
Dr Michael Seeber (psychiatrist and psychotherapist, Essen/Germany)
My last order arrived in a reasonable amount of time, regarding the long way it had to take! I am glad to find this and some other ayurvedic remedy, as well as books and much other things at your online-store and I am looking forward to be your customer again, some time.
