Extracts from My Complete Oriya Translation
of Sanskrit Kavya “Sringara-Sataka” of Poet Bhartrihari.
*
Bhartrihari is a distinguished poet of Sanskrit Literature of 7th century A.D. He is popular for his Sanskrit Giti-kavya ‘Niti-Sataka’, ‘Sringara-Sataka’ and ‘Vairagya-Sataka’. Combinedly the Giti-kavya of trio is known as ‘Bhartrihari-Sataka-Traya’. Each Sataka contains One hundred Sanskrit Slokas.

In ‘Niti-Sataka’ various aspects of life such as Knowledge, Wealth, Deed, Duty, Destiny, God, Mundane Region, Noble Qualities, Good and Bad Persons with their works, Art, Literature, Music and the like have been portrayed marvellously.

In ‘Sringara-Sataka’ the poet has beautifully delineated different facets of Women, Love and Sentiment of Eros, Mundane Wealth, World in contrast with Brahman, the Almighty Supreme Being and Eternal Bliss.

In ‘Vairagya-Sataka’ detachment from worldly enjoyments, meditation and devotion towards God have been depicted. In all the three Satakas, experiences of life, hardships, struggles, downfall, deeds, success, achievements, goal of life, salvation and other related matters are observed with the humanistic approach.


Of all the three Satakas of Bhartrihari, My Complete Oriya Translations done in modern literary metres, have been published in several Puja Special Issues of ‘Bartika’, the distinguished Oriya Literary Quarterly of Dasarathpur, Jajpur, Orissa.

Koshali Meghaduta: Purba Megha: Dr.Harekrishna Meher

‘Koshali Meghaduta’ 
* Dr. Harekrishna Meher

(My Complete Koshali Lyrical Translation of Poet Kalidasa's
Sanskrit Kavya 'Meghadutam' )
*
In Indian Literature, for the first time, Kalidasa's 'Meghaduta' has been transcreated into Koshali language in my pen.
*
This Complete Lyrical Version of mine has been entirely published in the distinguished Literary Quarterly ‘Bartikā’, Daśaharā Special Issue, October-December 2003, pages 164 - 236 of Daśarathapur, Jājpur, Orissa.
= = = = = = 

As a unique lyric poem of Classical Sanskrit Literature, Kālidāsa’s ‘Meghadūta’ has internationally earned high recognitions. It has been translated into various languages of both eastern and western countries of the world.
‘Kośalī Meghadūta’ has been composed with the new design of sweet melodious metre of folk-songs popular in Kośalī language of Western Orissa. From this point of view, Kośalī Meghadūta, a significant literary work of Classical Literature, can be included in Kośalī Folk Literature also.

‘Meghadūta’ embodies two parts : Pūrva Megha and Uttara Megha.
Pūrva Megha generally contains 66 ślokas and Uttara Megha 55 ślokas.
So accordingly total 121 ślokas have been translated by me into Kośali.
Some spurious or interpolated verses which appear in some editions of Meghadūta have been left here.

In Sanskrit Literature, Kālidāsa is well known as ‘Prakriti-Kavi’, Poet of Nature. His famous Gīti-Kāvya ‘Meghadūta’ deals with the love-story of a newly-married Yaksha who was appointed by his master Kubera, the Lord of Wealth, for daily collection of flowers for the worship of God Śiva. But owing to excessive attachment to his wife, the young Yaksha, negligent of his duties, was cursed by his master to bear one-year exile at Rāmagiri mountain. Separated from his newly-wed wife, he remained there. At the advent of rainy season in the month of Ashādha, he saw a big cloud at the mountain-top. Distressed with love and pangs of separation, he decided to send message to his wife for consolation in life and requested the cloud to be his messenger. By this time, he has passed nearly eight months of his exile.
In the pen of Kālidāsa, all the aspects of Nature are personified, alive and filled with emotions and feelings. In accomplishing own duty as a messenger, the Cloud has been portrayed as a younger brother and a friend of Yaksha.
*
Pūrva Megha, the first part of Meghadūta, depicts the route of the messenger Cloud from Rāmagiri upto Alakā city situated in Kailāsa mountain. So a geographical description with significance of various places of India is found here. Rāmagiri, Māla-kshetra, Āmrakūta mountain, Narmadā river, Vindhya mountain, Daśārna land and its capital Vidiśā, Vetravatī river, Nicha mountain, Nirvindhyā river, (Kāla-)Sindhu river, Avantī land and its capital Ujjayinī, Siprā river, Gandhavatī river, Mahākāla temple, Gambhīrā river, Kārttiteya’s abode Devagiri, Charmanvatī river, Daśapura land, Brahmāvartta, Sarasvatī river, Gańgā river, Himālaya, Krauñcha mountain, Kailāsa mountain, Mānasa Lake and Alakāpurī – all these places find attractive delineations in this Gīti-kāvya.
*Uttara Megha, the second part, elaborates the beauty and prosperity of Alakā city along with the emotional message of Yaksha for his separated wife. The main Sentiment of this work is Eros, Śrińgāra Rasa, especially Love-in-Separation (vipralambha śrińgāra). However, Love-in-Union (sambhoga śrińgāra) is also observed in some descriptions of rivers, mountains and sylvan sites. Poet Kālidāsa, a devotee of God Śiva, has endeavoured here to establish the socio-cultural heritage of India with theistic and spiritual affinity.

Koshali Meghaduta: Uttara Megha: Dr. Harekrishna Meher

'Koshali Meghaduta'  
By : Dr. Harekrishna Meher   
(Complete Koshali Lyrical Translation of Poet Kalidasa's 
Sanskrit Kāvya Meghadūtam)  
*
Koshali Meghaduta (Part 2) 'Uttara Megha'.
*
For Introduction, please see '

has been transcreated into Koshali language in my pen.

Meghadūta of Kālidāsa is a distinguished lyric poem of Sanskrit having Śrińgāra Rasa as its prevailing Sentiment. Vipralambha Śrińgāra (Love-in–Separation) is dominated here. The hero of this kāvya is a Yaksha, who, negligent of his duties, becomes cursed and banished for one year by his master Wealth-God Kubera. The newly-wed young Yaksha, separated from his wife, resides alone at Rāmagiri to suffer the exile. On the first day of Ashādha month, he sees a big elephant-like cloud and to console his wife requests the Cloud to convey his love-message to his wife residing in Alakā city. By this time, he has passed nearly eight months of exile.

Kālidāsa, the Poet of Nature of Sanskrit Literature, has very aptly depicted this Gīti-kāvya with the inner fragrance of cultural heritage, theistic trend, national integration and natural beauty of our Motherland India.

Pūrva Megha, the first part of Meghadūta comprising 66 verses, portrays the route of Cloud from Rāmagiri to the destination Alakā city situated in Kailāsa mountain. A geographical description of India is found beautifully designed in the pen of Kālidāsa.

Uttara Megha, the second part of Meghadūta comprising 55 verses (from Śloka No. 67 to 121}, describes the beauty and grandeur of Alakā city and the message of Yaksha sent to his separated wife through Cloud. Here Yaksha gives solace to his wife and encourages her to endure patiently the pangs of separation for the remaining curse-period of nearly four months. He is said to be free from the exile on the day, when God Vishnu, after ‘Hari-Śayanī’ wakes up from his sleep; that day is popularly known as ‘Devotthāna Ekādaśī’ in the month of Kārttika. The emotional message can be heartily enjoyed with pain and pleasure by the lovers of literature.

‘Koshali Meghaduta’ has been composed with a new design of sweet melodious metre of folk-songs popular in Koshali language of Western Orissa. Thus Meghaduta, a significant work of Classical Literature, can be included as a significant work in Koshali Literature also.
