UCHAITHA

This conduct of his enraged them and they made a complaint to their Guru that Kalidasa, who was considered to be a very dull student,disturbed them in their studies. The Guru called him and asked as to why he was misbehaving. Kalidasa promptly replied in an unusual way that he could not tolerate the wrong pronunciation of his class fellows.The, Guru, to his utter surprise, found that the boys had erred in their pronunciation and that Kalidasa was fully justified in pointing out their mistakes.

He asked Kalidasa about this sudden development of great intellect in him. Kalidasa narrated the story of the previous night when he had the privilege of meeting the goddess Durga, who had appeared before him and gave him the blessing of wonderful learning. For this very divine achievement the place is calledSiddhipitha of Kalidasa.There is a slight variation to the story. Some say that the goddess Kali who was visited at midnight blessed Kalidasa.

It is said that no one could dare to visit the temple of Kali at midnight, as he would be dead by such a visit. The boys at the pathshala wanted to test the courage of Kalidasa and asked him to visit the temple at midnight. Kalidasa did this and the goddess, being pleased with his courage, blessed him that lie would be a great scholar.
