Description

 

Preface

No apology is needed for this new edition of the Mrichchhakatika, as there is at present no suitable edition available which satisfies the needs of the University students, who have often to study this play for their examination. I have tried to make this book as comprehensive and useful as possible, inspite of the short time at my disposal, as the edition was undertaken at the urgent request of the publishers somewhat late in the beginning of this year. To the commentary of Prithvidhara, which is somewhat abrupt and meager in places, I have made considerable additions where I felt them to be necessary for the elucidation of the text. The relation of this play to Bhasa's Charudatta has been fully discussed in the Introduction, along with other usual matters. The prakrit passages, which prove a hindrance to the student in the class, have been printed below the text, only the Sanskrit rendering being given above; the utility of this contrivance has been established in actual use. I have fully availed myself of the labours of my predecessors in this field; but I must make special mention of the editions of Jivanand Vidyasagar and N.B. Godbole, and the scholarly translation of Dr. Ryder, as also his supplementary Notes issued in the Journal of the American Oriental Society. To all these best acknowledgements are due. But I have specially to thank a friend of mine who materially assisted me in the preparation of this edition and but for whose able help in every way the edition could not have been brought out in the short space of six months. Any suggestions or corrections & co, that might help to make this edition still more useful, will be most thankfully received.

The best and fastest service worldwide - I am in Australia and I put in a big order of books (14 items) on a Wednesday; it was sent on Friday and arrived at my doorstep early on Monday morning - amazing! All very securely packed in a very strong cardboard box. I have bought several times from Exotic India and the service is always exceptionally good. THANK YOU and NAMASTE!

Carl, UK.
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.
Gina, USA
