BHARAT DARSHAN – CELEBRATION OF SHAKUNTALA – REMEMBERING KALIDASA. RENAMING OF MEGHDOOT THEATRE COMPLEX IS DISGRACEFUL ,DISTASTEFUL, AND DISHEARTENING.

India or ‘BHARAT’ celebrates the legacy of Queen Mother Shakuntala by enacting play ‘Abhijnanasakuntala’ (Shakuntala and the Ring of Recognition), written by India’s great Sanskrit poet Kalidasa.

The decision to rename Sangeet Natak Akademi Drama Theatre, “MEGHDOOT” at Rabindra Bhavan, New Delhi is distasteful, disrespectful, disgraceful, and disheartening. it reminds of me of the curse that caused immense suffering to Shakuntala while she and Prince Bharat endured separation from King Dushyant.
