Which one of the following is not written by Kalidasa? a) Kumarasambhava b) Raghuvamsha c) Ritu Samhara d) Mrichchakatikam


The correct answer is option (D) – Mrichchakatikam.

Kumarasambhava is an epic poem written by Kalidasa. It talks about the birth of Lord Karthikeya, son of Goddess Parvathi and Lord Shiva. The Raghuvamsha is a Mahakavya (roughly, epic poem) containing 1564 stanzas. It describes the line of kings of the Raghu dynasty. Ritu Samhara was written by Kalidasa. It has six cantos for the six Indian seasons. Ritu Samhara means coming together or group. 

Mrichchakatikam is a ten-act Sanskrit drama attributed to Sudraka. The central story is that of a noble but impoverished young Brahmin, who falls in love with a wealthy courtesan. The play is set in the ancient city of Ujjain during the reign of the King Palaka, near the end of the Pradyota dynasty.
