Correct Answer - Option 3 : Kumara Sambhav and Raghuvamsha

The correct answer is  Kumara Sambhav and Raghuvamsha.

  • Kalidasa was one of the gems of the court of Gupta king Chandragupta II (375–415 CE).
  • The poems he wrote were usually of epic proportions and were written in classical Sanskrit.

  • He wrote two epic poems called Kumara Sambhava, which means the birth of Kumara, and the Raghuvamsha, which means the dynasty of Raghu.
  • There are also two lyric poems written by Kalidasa known as Meghadutta that stands for cloud messenger and the Ritusamhara that means the description of the seasons.
  • Meghadutta is one of the finest works of Kalidasa in terms of world literature.
  • The beauty of the continuity in flawless Sanskrit is unmatched to date.
  • The most famous and beautiful work of Kalidasa is the Shakuntalam.
  • It is the second play of Kalidasa after he wrote Malavikagnimitra.
  • The Shakuntalam tells the story of king Dushyant who falls in love with a beautiful girl Shakuntala, who happens to be the daughter of a saint.
