The legend of Shakuntala has eternal appeal for lovers of literature. The travails of the beautiful maiden, who fell in love with king Dushyanta, was first mentioned in the Mahabharata.
The lineage of the Pandavas and Kauravas is traced to King Bharat, son of Shakuntala and King Dushyant. Kalidasa, the great Sanskrit poet and dramatist, adapted it into his memorable play "Abhijnana Shakuntalam". The master's works have been translated into almost all major languages of the world.
