Poet Kalidasa is a world-famous distinguished figure in Classical Sanskrit Literature and 
he is well-known as ‘Prakriti-Kavi’, Poet of Nature,owing to his extraordinary calibre in depicting various phenomena of Nature with hearty emotional touch of human relations. 
His Sanskrit works mainly comprise mahakavyas, khanda-kavyas and dramas.

His two mahakavyas are ‘Raghuvamsam’ and ‘Kumara-Sambhavam’,while his three 
dramas are ‘Abhijnana-Sakuntalam’, 'Malavikagnimitram’ and ‘Vikramorvashiyam’. 
He has composed two khandakavyas ‘Meghadutam’ and ‘Ritusamharam’.

His ‘Ritusamhara’ kavya consists of six cantos (sarga) bearing descriptions of six
seasons that are ‘Grishma (Summer), Varsha (Rain), Sharat (Autumn), Hemanta
(Winter), Shishira (Dewy) and Vasanta (Spring). It is a small kavya especially
endowed with some amorous descriptions of human beings in different seasons.
It also depicts various aspects of beauty and other figures of Nature corresponding
to the feelings of men and women in the worldly activities.

Complete Oriya Metrical Translation of ‘Ritusamhara’ kavya was done by me in June
1973. The special feature of this translation is that the last word of each verse ends with 
the letter ‘Ra’. So this kavya has been written in ‘Ra’-Antyanuprasa (‘र’ वर्ण-अन्त्यानुप्रास).
