Kalidasa Essays and Translations
Kalidasa Essays and Translations
Description
Preface

Kalidasa: Essays and Translations consists of Sri Aurobindo's surviving work on the classical Sanskrit poet Kalidasa. The essays, all from the period 1898 - 1903, were written as chapters for a book- length study that was meant to cover Kalidasa's entire oeuvre. It will be seen from Sri Aurobindo's sketch of the contents (reproduced on page 3) that he worked on less than half of the proposed seventeen chapters. He published only two of the essays during his lifetime; the rest are reproduced from his manuscripts. The complete translation of the Vikramorvasiya and the partial translation of the Malavikagnimitra also were done around the turn of the century. The partial translation of the Kumarasambhava is from the period 1916-18, while the fragmentary translations are from various periods. The editors have added, in an appendix, a passage from Sri Aurobindo's Defence of Indian Culture dealing with Kalidasa.

The best and fastest service worldwide - I am in Australia and I put in a big order of books (14 items) on a Wednesday; it was sent on Friday and arrived at my doorstep early on Monday morning - amazing! All very securely packed in a very strong cardboard box. I have bought several times from Exotic India and the service is always exceptionally good. THANK YOU and NAMASTE!

Carl, UK.
I wanted to let you know how happy we are with our framed pieces of Shree Durga and Shree Kali. Thank you and thank your framers for us. By the way, this month we offered a Puja and Yagna to the Ardhanarishwara murti we purchased from you last November. The Brahmin priest, Shree Vivek Godbol, who was visiting LA preformed the rites. He really loved our murti and thought it very paka. I am so happy to have found your site , it is very paka and trustworthy. Plus such great packing and quick shipping. Thanks for your service Vipin, it is a pleasure.
