Have you ever read Kalidas? That guy was sexologist!! It’s immense sex in his books. Ok, we all watched porn, mostly in our class 8. If you are from boarding school like me then you have been graduated in your class 5 or so. Yeah, that’s fast haha! I went to book fair and bought Kalidas to read it and I had no clue on the sex part though.
My math teacher, Santanuda, in home was a avid book lover too, he gave me book in my every birthdays :) He asked for that book as it was on table from it’s buying night. After two days, when he returned, he mysteriously asked if I had read it or not which I replied yes to maintain my status of “more reader” zone haha. He said,“You are mature than other guys”.
Ok! the tone was enough to get me into reading. I found some it strange. It had potentially dangerous stuff for religious people lol. The dude Kalidas dreamt on how Lord Shiva had his first sex with Parvati or Durga Maa. Like just another erotic porn stories but the language was poetic and cryptic.
But, as it is Sanskrit porn it is hence divine.
Here is an erotic fact – Have you ever thought why Agnidev (God of fire) looks ugly? Kalidas says, Shiva was too busy having sex with Parvati that he forgot everything else and it was war there and Shiva was highly needed and hence other gods asked Agnidev to inform shiva about this. So Agnidev sneaked into the temple where they were having sex and informed in the middle of their intercourse at the time of extreme zone… Hmm.. You know what I mean. So shiva got angry and throw his sperm over Agni and Agni got that burn. Fair enough.
Quite a scandal.
But what I love about Kalidas, the romanticism. The unique feature of the play is the absence of tragedy. Similar like Salman Khan’s movie and that’s why I loved his movies. I hate negative stuff. Since the play is a love drama the only negative emotions introduced in the play are worry, anxiety, sorrow and heartburn, but these emotions are just momentary.
Abhigyan Shakuntalam is a play which revolves around the love story of King Dushyanta and Shakuntala. Shakuntala was the daughter of sage Vishwamitra and the Apsara Meneka. Abandoned at birth by her parents, Shakuntala was brought up in the secluded hermitage of the sage Kanva, and grows up into an attractive, but innocent maiden. Shakuntala married King Dushyanta and gave birth to Bharat, after whom India was named Bharat.
King Dushyanta marries Shakuntala, but has to leave for Hastinapur to fulfil his commitments. Dushyanta gives Shankuntala a ring, to be shown to the king when she goes to his courts, to claim her place as the queen. Shakuntala is lost in her thoughts and fails to attend to the sage Durvasa. The angry sage curses her by casting a spell over Dhushyanta to forget about her existence. The King can be freed from the spell only if Shakuntala shows him the ring.
A fisherman discovered the ring in the stomach of a fish, which he caught. Shakuntala had lost the ring in the river when she ran her hand through the water while crossing it. The ring was shown to the king by the policemen, who had caught the fisherman for theft.
