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 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.
