It is a matter of great pleasure and a proud privilege for us to revise the edition of Malavikagnimitram by late M. R. Kale, so as to suit the needs of present day students. Ka1e's edition, with its scholastic and comprehensive contents has been very useful to students as well as to scholars and teachers and hence the same, in its revised form, is made available, to-day, by us.

The English translation, in the present edition, is printed opposite to the corresponding Sanskrit text for immediate and ready reference. The topics viz. The Sanskrit Drama’, ‘ Kalidasa and Bhavabhuti’, ‘Technical Remarks’, and the ‘ Time analysis of the Play ’ from the Introduction to the last edition are not included in this edition, as, we feel, they are not required to be studied by the F. Y. Arts students, for whom the present edition is mainly intended.

The Prakrta text, the Sanskrit commentary of Katayavema and the variant readings will, no doubt, help and enlighten the study of the play. At the end, an alphabetical Index of verses, an index of the Subhasitas occurring in the play and a detailed note on the metres, are retained in this edition to facilitate the needs of readers.

We hope, that the present edition will be a useful and an enlightening one to the students and scholars alike. We take this opportunity to thank Shri Harkishandas A. Sheth of M/s A. R. Sheth & Co. for his willing co- operation.


The prose order of the verses and the critical appreciation of each act are added in this edition for the benefit of the students.

We take this opportunity to express our thanks to our professor-friends and students whose encouragement has made it possible for us to bring out a new edition of the play.
