There is something sad about a work which was intended as a volume of felicitation
but must now appear as a volume in memoriam.
Life, however, is more ancient than death by at least one generation and as long as
a person is known to have lived, the person is alive, for it is in our thoughts that people
are alive for us when they are not with us. I hope this volume will serve to keep alive the
memory of Professor D.P. Singhal and in that memory he too will live again. Death may
not respect individuals but time is the sentinel of scholars. In the longevity of their
memory they survive the brevity of their temporal existence.
I thank the scholars who have contributed to this volume for making us feel that
Professor Singhal is still among us in spirit.
