About the Book

There are number of editions of Kama Sutra of Vatsyayana available today. The Present one can count the following as its distinguishing features-

ii). The 'Introduction' carries detailed account of origin and development of sexology in India and the 'notes' at the end attempts to throw fresh light on each of the seven adhikaranas of KamaSutra.

 

About the Author

Amal Shib Pathak studied for his Ph.D in Sanskrit Literature from Lucknow University. His guide for research was Dr. Atul Chandra Banerjea, the then Reader in the Deptt. of Sanskrit, Pali & Prakrit, who later became the Vice chancellor of Faizabad University. The subject of his thesis was "Stage and stagecraft of Sanskrit Plays". He had studied Kudiattam of Kerala under Late Mani Madhavan Chakyar in Ottappalam and had traced its relationship with ancient Indian theatrical practices.

After serving in State Bank of India for 36 years he has taken up studies in Sanskrit Literature. He had edited three unpublished manuscripts viz Kama Samuha of Ananta, Sringara kavya of Sankara and Kama Sara of Kama Deva, His edition of Natya Locanam of Trilocanaditya has recently been published by Chaukhambha Sanskrit Sansthan.

"His edition of Nagara sarvasva will be a valueable addition to the available works on Kama Sastra".
