Description
About the Book

Ganganatha Jha (1871-1941) was a great indologist of his time. Bron and brought up in a milieu that was pulsating with Sanskrit learning, he pursued his career through the medium of English education at Darbhanga in the beginning and then at Varanasi. Drawing inspiration fron such famous indologists as G. Thibaut and A. Venis and learning Mimansa, Nyaya, Smriti, etc. from Mahamahopadhyaya Shiva Kumar Shastri, Mahamahpadhyaya Jaya Deva Mishra and others, he set out a life that, according to Otto strauss, eventually made him “the happy blend of ancient pandit, with his depth of knowledge, and of the modern scholar with his wide horizon.” He produced dozens of books in English, Sanskrit, Hindi and Maithili all substantially enriching the tradition of indology and rose in eminence becoming ultimately the Vice Chancellor of Allahabad University.

 

About the Author

Professor Hetukar Jha attempts, in this monograph, to present some glimpses of Ganganatha jha’s generation and a few snatche of his life-long mission. Those interested in the field of indology in general and Ganganatha Jha in particular may find it useful.

 

Preface

This monograph is intended to present a profile of Ganganatha Jha through the events of his life-time which were crucial both for his career as well as his socio-cultural milieu. Such event were social events and a comprehensive perception of them may reveal the working of the forces that shaped the person that was Ganganatha Jha. Attempts have been made for explaining the various social, historical and cultural aspects of such events. Let me state frankly in this context that I have not been able to present a critical appraisal of his scholarship. In fact, it is far beyond my capacity of his intellectual output are not entirely missing in this account. A bibliography of his works has also been given in the end (See Appendix-I).

Sahitya Akademi gave me the opportunity to write this monograph for which I shall ever remain grateful. Prof. Damodar Thakur read the manuscript and gave some valuable suggestions. My debt to him is great. Dr. Vedanatha Jha, Dr. Lakshminatha Jha and Shri Guneshwar Jha were always ready to extend their assistance to this entend their endeavour. I shall remain indebted to all of them.

Je vis à La Martinique dans les Caraïbes. J'ai bien reçu votre envoi 'The ten great cosmic Powers' et Je vous remercie pour la qualité de votre service. Ce livre est une clé pour l’accès à la Connaissance de certains aspects de la Mère. A bientôt

Namaskar. I am writing to thank Exotic India Arts for shipping the books I had ordered in the past few months. As I had mentioned earlier, I was eagerly awaiting the 'Braj Sahityik Kosh' (3 volumes). I am happy to say that all the three volumes of it eventually arrived a couple of days ago in good condition. The delay is understandable in view of the COVID19 conditions and I want to thank you for procuring the books despite challenges. My best wishes for wellness for everyone in India,
Prof Madhulika, USA

Thank you so much for your wonderful store and wonderful service. A Naga Kanya stat arrived yesterday. The sculpture was very well packaged, and it is very beautiful. I am very very happy with the statue and very grateful to your company for providing access to such lovely works of art. Thank you for providing truly beautiful objects and for providing great service. All the very best to you,
