Modern-day parents want their children to imbibe scientific thinking and be innovators in whatever area they choose to pursue. However, today’s school education system focuses on informing the findings of science but not the method of scientific thinking and model-based reasoning in a formal way. India’s traditional education system used to have formal training in thorough mastery over language, vocabulary, and poetic stories followed by the study of Nyaaya (logic) and Saankhya shastras (cosmology).

Aparṇājatilam (अपर्णाजटिलम्) is from the fifth canto of Kālidāsa’s Kumarasambhavam. Aparṇā, daughter of Himavan and Mena, follows rigid austerities while performing penance in the scorching sun-heat, calm winter waters, and heavy downpours. Lord Śiva, pleased with her penance, enters her hermitage in the guise of a young celibate. His criticism of Śiva, Aparṇā’s reply to that and Lord Śiva’s revelation of himself are the contents of Aparṇājatilam.
Kālidāsa’s description and style undoubtedly add beauty to the discourse.
