Madhav and Kama A Love Story From Ancient India
Madhav and Kama A Love Story From Ancient India
Description
From the Back of the Book:

This is the story of Madhavanala and Kamakandala. Madhav, a handsome and accomplished young man, is asked to leave his city of Pushpavati: has looks and singing so distract women that they neglect their work, and city folk are in uproar about it. Exiled, Madhav reaches the court of King Kama Sena, the ruler of Kamavati, where he meets the bewitching courtesan Kama. The two fall in love, but royal ire ensures that the lovers must part. A heartbroken Madhav takes shelter in a temple at Ujjain, the city of King Vikramaditya.

What can the great ruler do to assuage Madhava's Pain?
What does he do to reunite the lovers?

This is lively and colourful tale has an ending the matches its evocative language, startling metaphors and candid narration of love. In circulation since the twelfth century AD, Madhav & Kama has been translated from the original Sanskrit text readers in English for the first time.
