What is depicted in the following picture? India post has come up with wonderful commemorative stamps over the years. What’s so special about this particular stamp?

Answer : Shakuntala writing a letter to Dushyanta – A Scene from Kalidasa’s Shakuntala

Winner: Ishwar ( St.Nomad) Although Nadhiyamali (@mad_nad) gave Shakuntala’s name – the letter is written to Dushyantha and not Kalidasa

Other Winners:

Ishwar, Ajay Kumar, Brat X, Prasanna, Sekar, Nithya

Can’t give brownies to others as I had asked what is depicted ( needed a specific answer). Good attempts by Arkadev, KN, Raji Aunty, Ram and Meena
