The story of Kalidasa -the gem among poets is the delightful tale of the literary legend Kalidas, a man so revered that his imprint is felt in Indian literature to this day. As a young cowherd in a remote village he was a simpleton who was constantly bullied and harassed. A twist of fate takes him to the kingdom palace in Kashi. After that he rediscovers himself and through single-minded focus and hard work, and some great good fortune he becomes sanskrit’s greatest writer and poet of all time. This transformation comes with its share of heartbreak, humiliation, laughter and tears.
