ONV Kurup's Ujjayini is a presentation of Kalidasa as elicited from his works. Ujjayini is a symbol of power. It has inherent in it the cruelty of
a ratnaharin. It snatches away Kalidasa's dream too. Thus starts his pilgrimage in search of the lost dream - the ideal beauty. His verses are
skimmed out of this turbulent state of mind. NVP Unithiri rendered this beautiful Malayalam work for the benefit of the readers of Sanskrit.
ONV Kurup is arguably the greatest living poet in Malayalam. NVP Unithiri is a Sanskrit Professor at the University of Calicut, Kerala.
