1 C.M. Ridding
The Kadambari of Bana: Translated with Occasional Commentary and Accompanied By a Full Abstract of the Continuation of the Romance By the Author's Son Bhusanabhatta
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 1974; 8170690471 / 9788170690474; First Edition; Hardbound; New; New; 
The Kadambari of Bana is one of the most interesting works for several reasons. It is a standard example of classical prose; has enjoyed a long popularity as a romance, and is one of the comparatively few Sanskrit works which can be assigned to a certain date, and so it can serve as a landmark in the history of Indian literature and thought. It may perhaps contain nothing not found elsewhere, but the fact of it having a date gives it a value. Banabhatta, its author, lived in the reign of Harshavardhana of Thanesar, the great king mentioned in many Inscriptions who extended his rule over the whole of Northern India, and from whose reign (AD 606) dates the Harsha era, used in Nepal. Another source of interest in Kadambari lies in its contribution to folklore. C.M. Ridding has done a singular service by rendering this elegant and simple translation intended for English readers from classic Sanskrit prose with unending compounds, which suggest the impetuous rush of a torrent, and the similes and puns are like the play of light and shade on its waters.
