The Epic Post – Shakuntala

And last an interesting peek into the making of the dress of ancient heroines, including  Shakuntala, in the Amar Chitra Katha comics.

No doubt a Shakuntala of the 21st century would again be quite different (though we can perhaps skip this soap opera version – and catch Shyam Benegal’s take here).

However Shakuntala is dressed, the epic endures.  Now to give it a complete read because I am a little in love with Shakuntala & Dushyant 🙂
