Description
About the Book

This is a new book in this field which gives all details of Manuscriptology which is a important subject now a days for researchers. People thought that Manuscriptology is only for History and allied subjects but the real fact is that Manuscript is a basic and important document for all subjects such as Ayurveda, Siddha, Unani, Yogshastra etc. Indian Manuscript tradition shows a wonderful continuity and its vastness surpasses that of any other country. Mss. were an object of high esteem. The offering of a manuscript was accepted as the best of gifts. The epics, Puranas and other sacred texts eulogies such gifts. Now in all over the world this is a important subject of study, which actually in India also before some decades but now in India there are now no researchers or writers available for writing on this topic. So, this book is now published here by the funding of Deccan Archaeological and cultural research Institute, Hyderabad. It will become more useful for new researchers who are interested in this field.

 

About the Author

Bhujang R. Bobade (Born 1982) from last Nine years, Bobade is in the consulting world to take the helm in Archival and Museum field at a time of crisis and change. He went through a dramatic turnaround. He started bootstrapping growth. Now, he is on the doorstep of a major expansion. It’s exciting and tiring and rewarding as ever building a rigorous strategic framework under his creative, community- based work. In his all last years, it was all about getting the programming moving, experimenting, and exploring the possibilities with spreading historical research in our community- History of Society Research. He is also working on different historical and educational Museums committees.

 

Preface

In this book elaborated upon the topics like meaning and importance of manuscriptology, objective outlook of editing and research, and contribution of scribes and preserves of the treasure of manuscripts Literary works in India have traditionally been written down on various materials such as palm leaf, birch bark and paper. In South India books- that is to say manuscripts consisting of bundled leaves (Sanskrit: Pustaka)- have been mainly made from palm leaf; that is, leaves either from the Talipot or from the Palmyra. There are various aspects involved in dealing with manuscripts and most of them were discussed when several experts on this subject. In this explained the peculiarities of different types of manuscripts. Here, in detail, the historical aspects of writing and manuscripts, and presented a panoramic view of scope of manuscriptology. Editing of manuscripts, and also on eligibility of editor, salient features of various styles of writing, scribal skills and necessary pre-requisites for editing. And also some details regarding various sources for collection of manuscripts and leading manuscripts- collections preserved at different Math, Jain religious organisations, research institutes and libraries.

Museums studies, simply defined, is a field that encompasses the ideas and issues involved in the museum profession- from the practical day-to day skill needed to operate a museum to theories on its societal role. It involves learning the ethics surrounding museum collections and the role of museums in edifying, elucidating, enlightening the thereby specializing in art, history and culture.

Museology sheds more light on the subject, “It is a profession where history is revealed not through history books, but first hand, through solid artifacts of history lined across museum walls. It is designed to acquaint students with how and why collecting is done along with the history of collection. I wasn’t sure of the scope of this career in India. But as I found out more, I realised that the field indeed has immense potential. As a career, museology is now in competition with history, art history and archaeology. This proves the progress or Museology over the years. An inherent appreciation for the arts and cultures is essential to carve a rewarding career in museum studies. Archivists and conservationists require a keen eye for detail and an inquisitive mindset to deliver the best job result. Those in art, art history, history and education, and other similar subjects are very likely to find the museum field rewarding. Also, with research being an important aspect of museology, librarians, historians, and archivists looking for new careers will also find the field challenging.
