Regarded as one of the earliest Indian plays written in Sanskrit, Mricchakatika (The Little Clay Cart) is a Sanskrit play written by Shudraka in the 2nd century BCE.

The main story is about a young man named Charudatta of Pataliputra (Patna), and his love for Vasantasena, a rich courtesan or nagarvadhu. The love affair is complicated by a royal courtier, who is also attracted to Vasantasena. The plot is further complicated by thieves and mistaken identities, thus making it a hilarious and entertaining play.

    Satchidananda,

    My scribd account is terminated and documents deleted by SCRIBD team. I have started re-uploading all the books at mediafire and replacing the download links in my blog. But, it takes time.

    Glad to keep in touch with you.
