yes notes e to tai ache
seems as if the story of Vikram and vetal is based on Chandragupta 2(who named himself as Vikramaditya) and vetalbhatta('vetal'). maybe some work of storytelling.
Very Interesting thank you
interesting explaination
Read other books as well, Harisena was pure sanskrit scholar and poet of Samudragupta's court.So he can't be among the 9 gems of Chandragupta II..There is one more person in the list which you forgot 'Ghatakarapa'. Kalidasa-a classical Sanskrit poet was already present in Chandragupta II courts.As per logic there can't be two Sanskrit scholar/poet together in the same court. It's a mistake. 9 gems are Kalidasa(sanskrit scholar),Amarsingh(Sanskrit lexicographer),Varahamitra(Mathematician & astrologer),Dhanvantri(Physician), Shanku(architect), Kahapanaka(astrologer),Vararuchi(Grammarian as well as scholar),Vetal Bhatta(Magician), Ghatakarapara(Sculpture and Architect). You may even check in wikipedia as well.
