Preface

The present monograph Introduction to Museums, Archaeology and Culture is the result of the work primarily done by both of us during 2009-10 for DACRI, Hyderabad. In this work more emphasis has been laid on the development of the various scripts since there are few works on this topic readily available to the readers. Further, in presenting the epigraphic materials in the following pages, the interests of the common readers as well as of the post-graduate students and research scholars have been kept in view. The present monograph is confined to the discussion on epigraphy, archaeology, museums, language and excludes folk culture from its purview.

I take this opportunity to express my sincere thanks to K. Jitendrababu, Director, Deccan Archaeological and Cultural Research Institute, Hyderabad, for not only getting me the guidance in the Institute but also for taking keen and personal interest in the preparation of this monograph till its completion. During the past two decades, folklore studies in India is moving in the direction of analysis. Folklore has gained respectability as a discipline on the university campus. Many institutions are busy with collection and analysis of folklore materials. Interdisciplinary approach to folklore studies is becoming a reality. Seminars, summer schools and workshops are becoming more frequent. The national and regional associations of folklore scholars seem to be more active now. All these are indicators of healthy growth of folklore studies as a discipline and the importance it has received in the country. I am also thankful to the other authorities of the Institute including the Librarian for affording the necessary facilities for my work.

Special gratitude's for my wife Usha and Karan for their nonstop supporting and love to me. Sometimes she feed me food when I was busy in writing. Karan is now become my shadow and as a good hand for me in future research work.
