Book Description
From the Jacket :

This is a collection of twenty seven essays, mainly Indological. Many of these essays have been published in research journals of Felicitation/Commemoration volumes. A few of them have either been revised and on some occasions enlarged with additional information. The subject matter of these articles are varied. Thus, problems of transliteration for bibliography, concern of ecological embalance, Tagore's translations of kalidasa's works, evaluation of Kalidasa by Tagore, Bankim Chandra, Madhusudan, Haraprasad Shastri and other Bengalee critics, Citramimamsa, different aspects of Kalidasa's Abhijnana-sakuntala, Bhita Medallions and the like- are the topics here. Last five articles are written in Sanskrit. In one of them right to die with dignity as sanctioned in Indian scriptures has been discussed. It is expected that the collection of essays would be well received and appreciated by all, particularly by scholars of Sanskrit.
