Older discussions at Kalidasa[edit]

The content of original Kalidasa has been moved here for accuracy and compliance of IAST. Find the older discussions at Talk:Kalidasa. --ΜιĿːtalk 16:10, 5 January 2006 (UTC)

  • Perhaps the page should have been moved (to preserve edit histories etc.) rather than content bodily copied from one place to another. The preceding unsigned comment was added by 131.111.8.103 (talk • contribs) .
First, it would be appreciable if you get a username and sign your comments. Regarding the movement, there already is a history of double redirects. And then, you may not use IAST code while searching for an article, would you? --ΜιĿːtalk 16:19, 5 January 2006 (UTC)

Image and Kalida's birthplace[edit]

Kalidas is widely believed to have been born in Vidarbha, and not in Malwa. There is also a memorial there. I tried to upload an image about this memorial, but it seems that the image will take some time to appear. Please don't delete it. --Wikindian 19:20, 26 July 2006 (UTC)

WikiProject class rating[edit]

Fringe Literature[edit]

KD Sethna's Problems of Ancient India may be popular in some revisionist circles, but it has zero credibility in academic literature. It's a pity that his chapter on Kalidasa was used to source material for this article. We definitely need better sourcing. rudra (talk) 08:00, 6 February 2008 (UTC)

Kalidasa in modern popular culture[edit]

This section really looks like a WP:COATRACK. Maybe it should be a separate article. rudra (talk) 10:59, 6 February 2008 (UTC)
