Description

About the Book

 

Sanskrit, the language of the elite in ancient India, inspired great literary works. This collection contains adaptations of five famous plays from Sanskrit literature.

 

Shakuntala, by Kalidasa, tells of the stirring romance between King Dushyanta and the divinely beautiful, Shakuntala.

 

Urvashi, also by Kalidasa, tells the story of a celestial dancer who is unable to forget a chance encounter with a human king.

 

Adapted from Bhasa's play Swapnavasavadatta, Udayana is an exciting romance full of twists and intrigues as is Ratnavali, said to be written by Emperor Harsha.

 

Vasantasena, though a romance, has a political theme and has been adapted from King Shudraka's Mrichchhkatikam.

 

 

SHAKUNTALA

 

When King Dushanta frist saw Shakuntala, He was struck by her incomparable beauty and gentle character. He made her his wife and vowed totake her back to his palace. But a curse from the sage Durvasa erased her memory so completely from his mind that he failed to recognise her. Much later, when the curse was broken he realised his mistake but it was too late .... or so it seemed to be.

The story of Shakuntala first appeared in the Mahabharata. It was later adapted into a play by the Sanskrit drornofist ane poet, Kalidasa.

 

URVASHI

 

Urvashi's beauty takes King Pururavas' breath away. He is besotted. He forgets his duties as a king and is absent-minded with his wife, Aushinari. Both gods and humans are involved in the dramatic twists and turns of his romance with the charming apsara, who dances for Lord Indra himself. Eventually, stumbling through their highs and lows, King Pururavas and Urvashi finally find their way to everlasting joy.

 

UDAYANA

 

King Udayana was a lucky man. He was handsome and strong, and had the love of two beautiful princesses. He also had the undying loyalty of able ministers. They pulled every trick in the book to ensure that he overcame his enemies and won back, not only his vast kingdom, but the happiness he richly deserved.

 

VASANTASENA

 

Noble though penniless, the handsome Charudatta is the love of Vasantasena's life, but scoundrels and misguided friends threaten their happiness. Their tale, told by Shudraka in his Sanskrit play written 2,000 years ago, presents a picture of bustling town life at the time. Excitement and adventure lurk around every corner, and sudden twists and turns make this a classic nail-biting romantic thriller.

 

RATNAVALI

 

King Udayana was in a dilemma: he had won the love of the beautiful Ratnavali, but how could he break the heart of his queen, Vasavadatta? Was a chance shipwreck going to wreck the peace and happiness of his home as well? Sagacious statesmen, loyal friends and even talking birds help in a romance which reveals all the subtleties of palace life so familiar to that master playwright, the 7th-century poet-king Harsha of Kanauj.

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.
