A classic Indian tale originally mentioned in the Mahabharata and dramatized by Kálidása. Śakoontalá, a maiden raised in a hermitage, meets and marries the visiting Dushyanta, king of India. He gives her a ring with the instructions for her to go to his court where she is to show the ring so she can be publicly accepted as his queen. Along the way there she loses the ring in a river. Without it, the king proves incapable of recognizing her and Śakoontalá ends up abandoned by everyone. The ring is found inside a fish reawakening Dushyanta's memory and he proceeds to search for his lost love so they can be reunited
The birth of Kumāra by Kālidāsa( Book )

6 editions published in 2005 in English and Sanskrit and held by 242 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This court epic describes events leading up to but not including the birth of Kumara (also known as Skanda or Karttikeya), the war god destined to defeat the demon Taraka." "The gods attempt to deploy Kama, the Indian Cupid, to set the ascetic supreme deity Shiva on fire with love for Uma (also known as Parvati), the daughter of the god of the Himalayan mountain range. Kama's mission fails, and Shiva, roused from his meditative trance, turns his flaming third eye on the love god, burning him to ashes. Next, Parvati herself turns to intense asceticism in order to win spiritual power and thereby the husband for whom she longs. She succeeds, and the climax of the poem is Shiva and Parvati's marriage and cosmic lovemaking, and Kumara's divine conception."--Jacket
The recognition of Shakúntala by Kālidāsa( Book )

10 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and Sanskrit and held by 238 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The play Shakuntala was one of the first examples of Indian literature to be read in translation in Europe. Shakuntala's story is a leitmotiv that recurs in many works of Indian literature and culminates in the master Kali-dasa's drama for the stage." "The virtuous heroine is forgotten by her betrothed, the king Dushyanta, only to be refound thanks to a distinguishing signet ring discovered by a fisherman in the belly of one of his catch. The final act distills the essence of human forgiveness, in Shakuntala's gracious release of her husband from his guilt."--BOOK JACKET

Regarded as the most important figure in the Classical Sanskrit literary canon, Kalidasa was a poet and playwright who likely lived in the fifth century AD. This collection brings together some of Kalidasa's most well-regarded dramatic works, including the timeless story of Shakuntala, a beautiful maiden who was abandoned at birth and raised in a remote hermitage. Though she later enchants a powerful king who desires to take the young woman as his bride, Shakuntala must overcome a series of obstacles before she can reign as queen
