THE book which is now published as its name correctly indicates, narrates in dramatical form, the romance of Subhadra and Dhananjaya described in the celebrated epic, the Mahabharata. Whatever has to be said of this play and its commentary as also of the dramatist, Kulasekhara-Varma and of the commentator Sivarama has been noted in the preface to the Nataka of the same author, the Tapatisamvarana published as the eleventh volume of the Series.

The work is informative and will be appreciated by the Scholars.
