Kalidasa is the author of several great Sanskrit poetical works (or Mahakavyas) and plays for which he is justly famous Raghuvamsha, Kumarasambhava, Meghadutta, Ritusamhara, Abhijnana Shakuntala, Vikramorvashiya and Malavika-Agnimitra
These reveal that Kalidasa was a lover of nature and his descriptions suggest that he must have travelled widely. His poetry has the freshness and beauty of a mountain stream. He portrays women with tenderness. He exhibits a special love for Ujjayini in his writings and he probably knew it well.
Scholars are agreed that though all Kalidasa's works have the stamp of genius, his play Abhijnana Shakuntala must be rated as his greatest work. Kalidasa today is regarded as one of the immortals of world literature taking the place beside Shakespeare and Goethe.
