This most human of Sanskrit plays is Shakespearian in its skilful drawing of characters and in the plots direct clarity.

One of the earliest Sanskrit dramas, Little Clay Cart was created in South India, perhaps in the seventh century CE. Set in the city of Ujjain, so secular and universal is the story that it can be situated in any society, and it has, including in Bollywood film and by the BBC. Charu*datta, a bankrupt married merchant, is extramaritally involved with a wealthy courtesan, Vas nta*sena.

The kings vile brother-in-law, unable to win Vas nta*senas love, strangles her, and accuses Charu*datta. The court decides the case hastily, condemning Charu*datta to death. Fortunately, our heroine rises from the dead to save her beloved, and all applaud their love. At this climax, the regime changes, and the rebel-turned-king makes Charu*datta lord of an adjacent city.
