Description

About The Book:

Kalidasa is honoured as India's National Poet, par excellence, and the greatest spokesman of her cultural heritage. Though he wrote in Sanskrit, his influence has been profound on all the literatures of India. He has never been excelled. This treatise presents a glimpse of the masterpoet in the light of scholarship upto date in a language appealing even to the general reader. It offer a critical-analytical survey of all his works from the perspective of Indian poetics and reveals Kalidasa as a universal poet of nature, love and humanism in general and as an embodiment of Indian ethos in particular.

About The Author:

Keralapura Krishnamoorthy (born 1923) had a brilliant academic career at the University of Mysore and served as Professor and Head of the Department of Sanskrit in the Karnataka University, Dharwad from 1959 to 1984.

Kailash Raj’s art, as always, is marvelous. We are so grateful to you for allowing your team to do these special canvases for us. Rarely do we see this caliber of art in modern times. Kailash Ji has taken the Swaminaryan monks’ suggestions to heart and executed each one with accuracy and a spiritual touch.
