Asoodomal Gidwani

Asoodomal Gidwani (1889 -1934)

Asoodomal Gidwani (1889 - 1934) was a Master of Arts from Oxford, yet deeply interested in Sanskrit literature. His contribution to Sindhi literature mainly consists of his adaptations of Kalidasa's dramas : Malvikagnimitra and Vikramorvashiam as well as his epic poems : Raghu Vansh and Kumar Sambhavam, into interesting prose-tales written in a direct and vigorous style.

Acharya Gidwani also faithfully translated Tagore's " Car of Time " into Rath Yatra in the original dramatic form. Though written much earlier, all these writings were published in 1926.
