Kalidasa – One of the greatest Sanskrit poets

It is estimated that he survived around the middle of the 4th or 5th century A.D.The biography of the great Indian poet Kalidasa provides us with an immense amount of detailed information about the places he traveled and the kind of life he led. he is  widely regarded as the greatest poet and dramatist in the Sanskrit language.As with most classical Indian authors, little is known about Kalidasa’s person or his historical relationships. His poems suggest but nowhere declare that he was a Brahman (priest), liberal yet committed to the orthodox Hindu worldview. His name, literally “servant of Kali,” presumes that he was a shaivite (follower of the god Shiva, whose consort was Kali), though occasionally he eulogizes other gods, notably Vishnu.
