Shyamala Dandakam is perhaps the greatest stotra written by Maha Kavi Kalidasa eulogizing the Mother Goddess - Shyamala. He has employed a poetic style called Dandakam in writing this prayer. Dandakam is a poetry where some of the lines have more than 26 syllables. It very much resembles prose. In this case, the entire Dandakam is a single sentencefrom start to the end.
