KALIDASA

Kalidasa is the greatest poet and dramatist that ever lived in India.

His works have enjoyed a high reputation and popularity in all climes and times after him.

An Indian poet says: when they started counting Sanskrit poets, they counted Kalidasa first on the little finger.

Try however much, they could not think of another to be reckoned on the ring finger; because of it, the ring finger came to be called as anamika or the unnamed!

Tradition holds that he was one of the nine gems in the court of Vikramaditya.

The others were Dhanvantari, Kshapanaka,
Amarasimha, Sanku, Vetala Bhatta, Ghatakarpara, Varahamihira and Vararuchi.
