Folkloric Motifs In Some Vedic Tales
Folkloric Motifs In Some Vedic Tales
Description
Acknowledgements

First of all I express my heartfelt gratitude to University Grants Commission for granting me financial assistance without which the making of the present book was almost impossible. I am also grateful to the Federation of Finnish Learned Societies, Helsinki, Finland, for presenting me a valuable book on folklore. Special mention should be made of eminent folklorist Late Prof. Dr. Tushar Chattopadhyay who first encouraged me to trace folkloric elements in Vedic texts and also advised me to read Stith Thompson's world-famous work Motif-Index Of Folk- Literature. I also owe a great deal to my guru Prof. Dr. Bhabani Prasad Bhattacharyya who has come to my rescue times without number by giving his valuable suggestions on various aspects of my work. I also like to express my indebtedness to Dr. Abhijit Ghose, Reader in Sanskrit, Jadavpur University, for supplying xerox copies of two valuable sanskrit texts. It will be -an ungrateful act on my part if I fail to mention the name of Dr. Madhusree Banetji, Principal of my College, whose continuous support and protection have enabled me to concentrate exclusively on my research work. How can I forget Prof. Sanghamitra Sarkar ard Dr. Papiya Mitra-both my colleagues-who have helped me to get many valuable books. I am also thankful to the staff of the libraries of the Asiatic Society (Calcutta), University of Calcutta, Sanskrit Col/ege, Sanskrit Sahitya Parisad and of my own college. Last but not least is Mrs. Lalita Sinha whose untiring efforts have ultimately given my work the shape of a complete book.

नमास्कार परदेस में रहने वाले भारतीयों को अपनी सभ्यता व संकृति से जुड़े रहने का माध्यम प्रदान करने हेतु, मैं आपका अभिनंदन करती हूँ| धन्यवाद
Ankita, USA
Namaste, This painting was delivered a little while ago. The entire package was soaking wet inside and out. But because of the extra special care you took to protect it, the painting itself is not damaged. It is beautiful, and I am very happy to have it. But all is well now, and I am relieved. Thank you!
Janice, USA
I am writing to convey my gratitude in the service that you have provided me. We received the painting of the 10 gurus by Anup Gomay on the 2nd January 2019 and the painting was packaged very well. I am happy to say that the recipient of the gift was very very happy! The painting is truly stunning and spectacular in real life! Thank you once again for all your help that you provided.
Mrs. Prabha, United Kingdom
I am writing to relay my compliments of the excellent services provided by exoticindia. The books are in great condition! I was not expecting a speedy delivery. Will definitely return to order more books.
Dr. Jamuna, New Zealand
I just received my powder pink wool shawl. It is beautiful. I bought it to wear over my dress at my son's wedding this coming Spring & it will be perfect if it's chilly in the garden. The package came very promptly & I couldn't be more pleased.
Pamela, Canada
I very much appreciate the tailoring service you offer. Many friends are delighted to see my last purchase. Hopefully more customers will contact you soon.
