Utkarsh re-imagines Shakuntala as a sort of feminine icon unlike the helpless woman as in the original story.

Most mythological stories in the Indian subcontinent- barring a few have focused on the male protagonists, this new breed of authors who re-imagine old tales with new outlooks is an interesting concept and is not likely to die anytime soon.

But nothing to talk about as either a period piece or a fantasy novel. Use of phrases that don't belong to the period like - self-crucification and class struggle is a bit jarring.

Also, the introduction and foreword seem to have been written without reading the main text, the goals for the retelling set in them are never met. They say how the Vedic women was so much better off than modern women, and the story establishes just the opposite.

Shakuntla here is strong minded, questions established norms and how! Kalidasa and the later day poets added the curse and the ring to disguise the fact that Dushyant was essentially a player and simply chose to ignore Shakuntla once he went back to his Kingdom. Listen to his internal discourse towards the end.

I had expected a slightl The original story of Shakuntla and King Dushyant was very different from the version that Kalidasa changed it to later on. I had expected a slightly different ending but it could not have been otherwise. Once again, Kalidasa has nothing of the tragedian in his soul; his works, without exception, end happily. In the drama Urvashi he seriously injures a splendid old tragic story for the sake of a happy ending.

These facts all point to the probability that the conclusion of the epic has been lost. We may even assign a natural, though conjectural, reason for this. The Dynasty of Raghu has been used for centuries as a text-book in India, so that manuscripts abound, and commentaries are very numerous.

Now if the concluding cantos were unfitted for use as a text-book, they might very easily be lost during the centuries before the introduction of printing-presses into India. On the other hand, we are met by the fact that numerous commentators, living in different parts of India, know the text of only nineteen cantos. Furthermore, it is unlikely that Kalidasa left the poem incomplete at his death; for it was, without serious question, one of his earlier works.

Apart from evidences of style, there is the subject-matter of the introductory stanzas, in which the poet presents himself as an aspirant for literary fame. In only one other of his writings, in the drama which was undoubtedly written earlier than the other two dramas, does the poet thus present his feeling of diffidence to his auditors.The name Vikramaditya--Sun of Valour--is probably not a proper name, but a title like Pharaoh or Tsar.

Now if the concluding cantos were unfitted for use as a text-book, they might very easily be lost during the centuries before the introduction of printing-presses into India.

No European nation can compare with India in critical devotion to its own literature. One of these legends deserves to be recounted for its intrinsic interest, although it contains, so far as we can see, no grain of historic truth, and although it places Kalidasa in Benares, five hundred miles distant from the only city in which we certainly know that he spent a part of his life.

Kalidasa completed the stanza without difficulty; but a woman whom he loved discovered his lines, and greedy of the reward herself, killed him. Utkarsh re-imagines Shakuntala as a sort of feminine icon unlike the helpless woman as in the original story.
