Preface

Being called upon by Dr K.K. Mishra, Director, Rashtriya Sanskrit Sansthan, New Delhi, to write an informative monograph for Golden Jubilee of India ‘s Independence Sanskrit Series on a topic of our own special interest we opted to focus some light on the glory of Mithilã. The land of Mithilã has always been held in high esteem by Sanskrit scholars all over the world but it remains a fact that many facets of its glory are still shrouded in mystery. Certain untold stories have been preserved by the people of the place with meticulous care throughout the ages. An attempt has been made in the present monograph to bring them to light.

Contributions of some of the philosophers, grammarians astrologers and astronomers, scholars of Dharmashastra id Tantra, artists and artisans and Kavya-Sahitya writers f Mithilã, who are now no more, have been highlighted ere in historical perspective. Their works had so moulded the society of Mithilã during the past centuries that the freedom movement here gained momentum with the result .at excepting unseen, unknown, unlamented and unsung roes, sixty-seven persons were killed in freedom struggle rd became martyrs in only one old Darbhanga District of Mithilã. Same is the number of persons listed as main freedom fighters in the same District. Not less than eight ladies ( the old Darbhanga District are recorded to have taken active part in the freedom movement. They have been rntioned by name in Appendix I to III of the present work. Appendix IV is a select bibliography of books, journals articles and doctoral dissertations dealing with Mithilã. k may be of some help to those desirous of undertaking research projects pertaining to Mithilä.

We are thankful to the honorable members of the Expert Committee for recommending our name for this academic assignment. In our attempt there is every possibility of certain omissions and commissions. For these we owe the sole responsibility.

We express our deepest sense of gratitude to scholars like MM. Dr Umesh Mishra, MM. Parameshwar Jha, Dr V. Mishra, Prof. D.C. Bhattacharya, Mr S.N. Singh, Dr Upendra Thakur, Dr S.C. Banerji, Dr Joydev Ganguly, Dr Umaraman Jha, Dr Shashinath Jha, Pt. Amod Jha, Dr E. Roer, Dr Abhinandan Jha, Dr Vimal Thakur, Dr Ganga Prasad Thakur and many others, whose works have been of some help to us in writing this monograph.

I wanted to let you know how happy we are with our framed pieces of Shree Durga and Shree Kali. Thank you and thank your framers for us. By the way, this month we offered a Puja and Yagna to the Ardhanarishwara murti we purchased from you last November. The Brahmin priest, Shree Vivek Godbol, who was visiting LA preformed the rites. He really loved our murti and thought it very paka. I am so happy to have found your site , it is very paka and trustworthy. Plus such great packing and quick shipping. Thanks for your service Vipin, it is a pleasure.
