Meghadūta (मेघदूत) is a masterly stroke in poetics where the celebrated Sanskrit Poet Mahakavi Kalidas captures the pristine beauty of the land across and through Ramgiri (Ramtek) to the habitat of Yakshas in Alkapuri in the heart of Himalyas with specifics of the life and living of the people at large. The narrative dwells on the depth emotional life of the young couple separated and made to spend time in seclusion due to a curse of the master. The poetics in the 66 verses in 'purv' as well as 55 verses 'uttar' parts of the Mahakavya leaves one wondering on various aspects of the life system. English rendering of HH Wilson speaks for itself the knowledge and understanding of civilizational aspects of India.
