Kaumudi Mahotsava is an interesting Samskrita drama. Its theme is restoration of the kingdom to Kalyanavarma. It contains two interesting themes, viz. (i) Love between Kirtimati and Kalyanavarma. (ii) Political strategy of Mantragupta, the minister of Sundara Varma, the King of pataliputra. The drama is in Vaidarbhi style. The remark of Rajashekhara viz.
Is fully justified. This drama has the influence of Kalidasa in respect of love theme and has the influence of in respect of political strategy.
Among the four poetesses whose full works are available Vijjika is the earliest. Her drama deliniates in a fascinating way and delineates political strategy with usual political measuring.
It is hoped that the young students take interest both in love theme and political strategies presented in the drama.
