Shakuntala’s story is told in the Mahabharata. Shakuntala was born of the sage Viswamitra and the Apsara Menaka. Menaka came to distract the great sage Viswamitra from his deep meditation. She succeeded, and bore a child by him.
Viswamitra distanced himself from the child out of anger. Later Menaka left the newborn Shakuntala in the forest. The new born child was found by Kanva Rishi surrounded by Shakunta birds. He thus named her Shakuntala. She became the wife of king Dushyanta and mother of emperor Bharata. The story of Shakuntala was dramatized by Mahakavi Kalidasa. Abanindranath Thakur converted the story of Shakuntala for children. Bengali Audio Book has created this children’s Shakuntala into audio format.
