Oneness of flora with human emotions in Abhijñānaśākuntalam
Dr. Shweta Bishnoi
Kālidāsa’s Abhijñānaśakuntalam is justly one of the most renowned treatises on nature in the world. What makes it so close to human heart is the epitomization of nature as a co-existent in human survival. This paper is an attempt to address the issue of ever-growing human apathy towards our great beneficiary, our very own mother nature. The play presents Śakuntalā and nature representing each other in their attributes. The blending of nature and human feelings is complete and they are inseparable from each other.
