Urvashi A Sanskrit Play (Comic Book)
Urvashi A Sanskrit Play (Comic Book)
Description
From the Book

Amar Chitra Katha is a collection of illustrated classics that retell stories from Indian mythology, history, folktale and legend through the fascinating medium of comics. Over 430 stories from all over India have been told in this series that has been endorsed by educationists and recommended by teachers the world over.

Through a masterful blend of commentary, dialogue and illustration, Amar Chitra Katha presents complex historical facts and intricate mythology in a format that would appeal to children. They not only entertain, but also provide a fitting introduction to the cultural heritage of India. In a country so vast and varied, the series also serves as a medium for national integration, by introducing young readers to the rich cultural diversity of the country and highlighting the achievements of local heroes.

Amar Chitra Katha comics are like family heirlooms, passed down from generation to generation.

Back of the Book

Kalidasa, the renowned Sanskrit poet and dramatist, is the author of Vikramorvashiam, the Sanskrit drama from which this book Urvashi has been adapted. It is the story of the noble King Pururavas and celestial dancer Urvashi.

In Kalidasa's drama, Urvashi emerges as a soft, tender woman who at times even forgets her celestial origin and is guilty of human tensions and misgivings. Lord Indra allows Urvashi to stay with Pururavas under one condition: the moment the king sets eyes on their child, she would have to return to the heavens forever. Thus follows a series of romantic events.

Kalidasa is regarded as one of India's greatest poets and dramatists. He was one of the 'nine gems' who adorned the court of King Vikramaditya of Ujjaini. Though many still hold the view that this was the Vikramaditya whose era began in 57 BC, modern research scholars are of the opinion that he belonged to the court of Chandragupta Vikramaditya of the Gupta dynasty. It is also believed that more than one poet bore this name as an honorary title.

Kalidasa wrote a number of poems of which Raghuvamsha, Kumara-Sambhava and Meghaduta are well known.
