As far as literary merits are concerned, Meghdoot (cloud Messenger) is the most excellent work. The readers are fascinated by the simplicity of its diction, portrayal of nature and delicate expression of love and the agony of love. Meghdoot has also been translated into various languages of the world. On the other hand, Ritu Samhara is totallky devoted to nature and its changing mood through different seasons. Kalidasa was a contemporary of the Gupta ruler Chandragupta Vikramaditya (4th 5th century A.D.). The legend goes that early in his life, Kalidasa was illiterate and a dullard. Some pandits who had been defeated in discourse by a highly intelligent princess Vidyottma, got herself married to Kalidasa in a deceitful manner out of jealousy. When the reality came out she felt very disturbed and annoyed. It is said that she strongly admonished Kalidasa for his ignorance. Kalidasa was very much shocked andhe took a vow to become a learned man. So he left his home in this pursuit and returned only after he had become a man of profound learning.
