Preface

As earlier had been planned, this Volume was to appear in print five years ago. However, my preoccupations with other urgencies, and priorities did not allow sufficient time to modify and revise the bulk of articles and papers to be compiled as the further advances in knowledge necessitated: moreover, the printing errors in earlier versions had to be rectified just as English had be revised at place. And next followed a period of illness, which lasted for over four years. The writing in this compilation cover period of over three decades, appear as they did in various journals, seminar proceeding volumes, as also a few felicitatory and commemorative volumes. The particulars concerning the original source of publication, of each article, with short observational comments wherever needed, is also included. Their details are given hereunder. The only unpublished paper, included here is No. 5, “The Date of the Lohanipur Jina Torso.”
