KĀLIDĀSA ON RELATION AND CONDUCT TO NATURE AS DEPICTED IN THE SIMILES OF RAGHUBAMŚAM

In the present time of utilitarianism our strength of collecting more and more civilizational height and imperialistic power, ethical relativism, and pleasureseeking ideologies that believe in minimizing human rationality and maximizing emotions and passions for maximizing pleasure are defining the rationality. Power of exploiting civilizational progress more and more has created restlessness and misbalance in human societies is keeping the humans engaged in enhancing balance sheets even at the cost of lowering human existence and the values, The argument of Ethical perspective we are discussing here in this paper with reference to Kālidāsa’s famous epic Raghuvamśam is that human rationality cannot be defined in terms of imperialistic power of a man or a nation but with our venerable conduct to the global communities. All richness of wealth and qualities meant for helping others. The term ‘other’ in broader sense is used for nature/environment outside responding to human nature inside. Defining the ethical relation and conduct that exist between man and nature, Kālidāsa establishes a spiritual perspective for which all have existence value that is, all are divinities. Nature responds and shares our conduct to it and our conduct to the other must be venerable for our well-being.
