UCHAITHA

It is said that there was a pathshala in this village where Kalidasa was reading. The students of the school used to go to the temple of the goddess Durga for lighting. deepaks and for chanting hymns. On a dark night his class fellows decided to send Kalidasa, who was a dull student to the goddess for puja. They polished his hands with black and white powder and told him to touch the face of the goddess with his hands so that they could know that he bad really visited the place. Kalidasa went to the temple and lighted the deepak.

He tried to mark the face of the goddess with black and white powder. The goddess appeared and advised hini not to mark her face with powder. She also asked him as to what he wanted as a boon. Kalidasa said, "I want to be learned." She said, I You may go and turn over all the pages of the whole book". He came to hisresidential pathashala in the night while all were asleep. At the dead of night, as advised by the goddess, he turned over all the pages one by one and slept. When some students of the hostel woke up in the early morning and began their studies Kalidasa marked their mistakes in pronunciation and shouted "wrong", '’wrong."
