I have great pleasure in introducing to the world of scholars the present
Volume in honour of Dr. K.V. Sarma, the doyen of Sanskrit studies in the
country at the moment. His pre-eminence in certain fields like Astronomy,
Lexicography, Manuscriptology and other technical sciences besides Sanskrit:
literature as a whole is simply unmatched. He has wide editorial experience
which stretches not only to editing critically old Sanskrit texts but also to editing
for years the prestigious Indological Journal of the Vishveshvaranand
Research Institute, Hoshiarpur, with utmost precision and care. He is a byword
for perfection and research methodology and technique. It was absolutely
thoughtful of his numerous colleagues, friends and admirers to honour him, a
savant of rare distinction, with the presentation of a Felicitation Volume on his
The volume comprises sixty-four research papers by eminent scholars,
touching practically every branch of Indology. They are all original studies on
an area of their specialization. I am sure the volume will be received as a stimu-
lating aggregate of useful research studies. It is a fitting tribute to Dr. K.V.
Sarma’s life-long devotion and dedication to the pursuit of Indology.
Besides being a monolith of scholarship and erudition Dr. K.V. Sarma is a
very warm-hearted personality. His gentleness, civility and suavity are simply
infectious. I wish him a long life of good health and happiness and continued
fruitful literary activity.
