The story is a fairy tale about a baby who was found by the Sage Kanva who gives her refuge in his ashram and raises her like his own daughter. Shakuntala grows up to be a breathtaking beauty (known to be as beautiful as a goddess).

She meets King Dushyanta who is completely smitten. He approaches her, wins her heart and gives her his Royal seal, his Ring.

Circumstances separate Shakuntala from King Dushyant, and she pines for her love to return.
