Malavika
Malavika
Description
'Malavika' is based on Mahakavi Kalidasa's play, 'Malavikagnimitra.'

Being the first play of Kalidasa, 'Malavikagnimitra' has more of the young enthusiastic writer's sense of fun, play and intrigue than the superb imagery and poetic expressions his later works display. Kalidasa was a court poet and the play reveals his first- hand experience of the intrigue and cunning, the jealousy, love and valour that rage behind royal curtains.

Scholars are not quite unanimous about the time and date of Kalidasa. From the 6th Century B.C. to the 10th Century A.D. various dates are proved and disproved to be the period Kalidasa lived in. But when it comes to Kalidasa's writings, there are no two opinions. They are unanimously considered exquisite.

The poet's more memorable works are 'Abhijnana Shakuntala', 'Ritusamhara', 'Raghuvamsha', 'Kumarasambhava', 'Vikramoravashiya' and the famous 'Meghadoota' a matchless work of poetry. Kalidasa is respected all over the world as one of the greatest poets and playwrights. Some of his works have been translated into almost all the major languages of the world.

I was pleased to chance upon your site last year though the name threw me at first! I have ordered several books on Indian theatre and performance, which I haven't found elsewhere (including Amazon) or were unbelievably exorbitantly priced first editions etc. I appreciate how well you pack the books in your distinctive protective packaging for international and domestic mailing (for I order books for India delivery as well) and the speed with which my order is delivered, well within the indicated time. Good work!
