Urvashi
Urvashi
Description
Kalidasa, the Sanskrit poet and dramatist, is the author of "Vikramorvashiam", the Sanskrit drama from which this book has been adapted.

Kalidasa elaborated on the Vedic and Post-Vedic versions of the tale of Pururavas and Urvashi.

In Kalidasa's drama she emerges as a soft, tender woman who even forgets at times her celestial origin and is guilty of human tensions and misgivings. He has introduced characters and situations which add to the credibility of the tale and its universal appeal.

Kalidasa is considered one of the greatest poets and dramatists of India. He was one of "the nine gems" that adorned the court of King Vikramaditya of Ujjaini. Though many still hold the view that this was the Vikramaditya, whose era begins in 57 B.C., modern research scholars are of the opinion that he was in the court of Chandragupta Vikramaditya of the Gupta dynasty. It is also believed that more than one poet bore this name as an honorary title.

Kalidasa wrote a number of poems of which Raghuvamsha, Kumara-Sambhava and Meghaduta are well known.

Testimonials

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.

Thank you kindly for the Cobra Ganesha from Mahabalipuram. The sculpture is exquisite quality and the service is excellent. I would not hesitate to order again or refer people to your business. Thanks again.

The variety, the quality and the very helpful price range of your huge stock means that every year I find a few new statues to add to our meditation room--and I always pick up a few new books and cds whenever I visit! keep up the good work!
