Kavi Kalidasa

Usha Desai (Translator)

Kalidasa is the great, the supreme poet of the senses, of aesthetic beauty, of sensuous emotion. .. .In continuous gift of seizing an object and creating to eye he has no rival in literature." His appreciation by the connoisseurs of literature extended beyond the boundaries of time and space. What strikes one about Kalidasa is his keen sense of observation, recognition of the essence of the object and suggesting it in themes succinct manner possible as well as his familiarity with nature and behaviour of people. Kalidasa had the style, the craft of the arts, intelligence and vocabulary, all of which contributed to his greatness. He was given the title of Kavikulaguru by the great poet Jayadeva. Baria also applauded his aptness. Kalidasa has committed himself to the traditional modus operandi whether in describing emotions, in suggesting thoughts or in depicting the beauty of women. In some places, he has projected his rebellious ideas too but in a very moderate manner. It was the specialty of Kalidasa that instead of a blatant use of words he used them in such a way that they conveyed much more than what they meant.
