'Her left hand rests on her hip, the bangle motionless at her wrist while the other arm falls freely like a fig branch. Lowering her eyes to the tiled floor, where her big toe caresses a flower, her curved body is more beautiful than her dance.'
Believed to be Kalidasa’s first work, Malavikagnimitram is the love story of King Agnimitra and the court dancer Malavika. The tale unfolds through humorous palace interludes, vivid descriptions of fine arts and the cunning machinations of court players. Even in this early work, Kalidasa’s characteristic penchant for romance, art and natural beauty is evident at every delightful turn of the plot. He transforms a simple tale of forbidden love into an engrossing courtly drama filled with beauty, humour and wit.
