Description

About The Book:

Kalidasa is honoured as India's National Poet, par excellence, and the greatest spokesman of her cultural heritage. Though he wrote in Sanskrit, his influence has been profound on all the literatures of India. He has never been excelled. This treatise presents a glimpse of the masterpoet in the light of scholarship upto date in a language appealing even to the general reader. It offer a critical-analytical survey of all his works from the perspective of Indian poetics and reveals Kalidasa as a universal poet of nature, love and humanism in general and as an embodiment of Indian ethos in particular.

About The Author:

Keralapura Krishnamoorthy (born 1923) had a brilliant academic career at the University of Mysore and served as Professor and Head of the Department of Sanskrit in the Karnataka University, Dharwad from 1959 to 1984. His well known publications include Dhvanyaloka text critically edited (1982), Vakroktijivita text criticially edited (1977), monograph on Kalidasa (1972) and on Banabhatta (1977), and independent works like Essays in Sanskrit Criticism (1979) and critical edition of Bharata's Natayasastra with Abhinavabharati. A recognized authority on Indian poetics, Krishnamoorthy has won several research prizes and awards including the President's Certificate of Honour in 1978.

I ordered Padmapani Statue. I have received my statue. The delivering process was very fast and the statue looks so beautiful. Thank you exoticindia, Mr. Vipin (customer care). I am very satisfied.
Hartono, Indonesia
Very easy to buy, great site! Thanks
Ilda, Brazil
Our Nandi sculpture arrived today and it surpasses all expectations - it is wonderful. We are not only pleasantly surprised by the speed of international delivery but also are extremely grateful for the care of your packaging. Our sculpture needed to travel to an off-lying island of New Zealand but it arrived safely because of how well it had been packaged. Based upon my experience of all aspects of your service, I have no hesitation in recommending Exotic India.
