Drama is considered as the mirror of life or society. Dramatic literature is very rich in Sanskrit. Two Sanskrit dramas are taken as text in MA 1st semester curriculum. These are Kalidasa’s Malavikagnimitram and Vishakhadatta’s Mudrarakshasam. Malavikagnimitram, a five-act drama, depicts the love between the king Agnimitra and princess Malavika. Mudrarakshasam, a seven-act political drama is written based on the fall of Nanda and the rise of Maurya dynasty in Indian history. Both the dramas are very famous and interesting in Sanskrit.
