Hamsa Sandesham and Megha Sandesham

srimathe ramanujaya namaha:

Dear Bhaktas,

I have a small doubt, which is not exactly on the topic of
Visisthadvaitam, but more so in Samskrutham.

I understand that Megha Sandesham of Mahakavi Kaalidasa was rather
"infulenced by Hamsa Sandesham", this would mean that kaalidasa would
have been a figure somewhere in the 5th - 6th Centuries CE. This is
not the traditional date ascribed to kaalidasa?

Any comments on this topic?
