The Megha Duta

H.H. Wilson (Author)
Synopsis The Meghaduta of widely known for the deep expression of the pangs and miseries of a Yaksha separated from his sweet heart at Alakapuri in the Himalayas. A beautifully personified ‘Cloud’ is requested to serve as a messenger of Yaksha to communicate his message of love from Ramagiri is Central India to Alakapuri where his beloved is spending her days of separation in agony. In this book Prof. Wilson’s translation of the Sanskrit Lyric into beautiful English Verses has been printed along with the original Sanskrit on the same pages. The translator has tried his best to go closer to the original in expounding the sentiment of love in separation. Exhausting notes on the text are given by the translator on almost every page clearing the doubts that may vex a casual reader. The book is appended with a good vocabulary of Sanskrit words with English meanings which adds to the value of the work.
