nal-damayanti

nal-damayanti : raaja ravi varma ki kruti

nal aur damayanti ki katha Bhaarat ke mahaakaavya, mahaabhaarat mein aati hai.

yudhishthir ko jue mein apna sab-kuchh gainva kar apne bhaaiyon ke saath vanavaas karna pada. vaheen ek rishi ne unhein nal aur damayanti ki katha sunaayi.

nal nishdh desh ke raaja the. ve veerasen ke putr the. nal bade veer the aur sundar bhi. shastr-vidya tatha ashv-sanchaalan mein ve nipun the. damayanti Vidarbh (poorvi Maharashtra) naresh ki maatr putri thi. vah bhi bahut sundar aur gunavaan thi. nal uske saundarya ki prashansa sunakar usase prem karne laga. unke prem ka sandesh damayanti ke paas badi kushalata se pahunchaaya ek hans ne. aur damayanti bhi apne us anajaan premi ki virh mein jalne lagi.

is katha mein prem aur peeda ka aisa prabhaavashaali put hai ki Bhaarat ke hi naheen desh videsh ke lekhak va kavi bhi isse aakarshit hue bina na rah sake. bop laitin mein tatha deen milmain ne angreji kavita mein anuvaad karke pashchim ko bhi is katha se bhali bhaanti parichit karaaya hai.
