KALIDASA' S MEGHDOOT
Kalidasa is one of the most illustrious names in ancient Indian Literature. His love poetry has entranced and inspired readers across the world, through the ages. In Meghdoot, a yaksha (celestical singer) is banishoo from his home in the Magnificent Himalayas. For a year, he has to live in the heat baked plains of India. He pines for the cool arbours of his home, for the passionate embrace of his sweetheart. One day he spies a cloud fleating leisurely towards the Himalayas. At once, he thinks of sending a message to his Love through the cloud: Hence megh (cloud)-doot (messanger).
