Dear all,

I read quite some time ago an article by Stephan Levitt on the titles of
Sanskrit dramas (here
In nuce Abhijñānaśākuntalam (or -śakuntalā) has been misunderstood and
should mean something like "The Story of Śakuntalā by means of a Ring". The
vṛddhi derivative by P. 4.3.87 and the compound by P. 2.1.30. He also
accounts for the variants in the title by reference to other rules from the
Aṣṭādhyāyī. I was wondering whether this explanation has been widely
accepted or if someone has responded to it. Thanks.

All the Best,
