Vidushi Vidyottama Stree Shakti Samman is an effort to recognize current research work in Sanskrit by acknowledging the contribution of a contemporary Scholar of Sanskrit in Ujjain annually Vidushi Vidyottama was one of the most erudite and talented women of her time. Although much of what is known about her is hearsay, yet her extraordinary genius has been historically established through the works of her husband, Kalidasa, the great Indian poet of antiquity, who nevertheless began life as a simple cowherd. In the twenty first century a fresh inquiry is being made into her role and the works of the poet Kalidasa are being looked at from a gender perspective.
