Foreword

As a D.Litt scholar is the Hindi Dept. of the University of Allahabad I had made an Extensive and through study of the subject of Nayaka – Nayika – Bheda. I got the degree in 1952, but my work was published under the title studies in Nayaka- Nayika- Bhedain 1967. As I Had ten read thousands of stanzas illustrating different types of the Heroine, a desire to compose a few illustrations myself was perhaps nebulous in my subconscious at that very time. Now that I have a lot of leisure, the latent desire automatically gained momentum and manifested itself, and so these rhymes were composed by me quite effortlessly while talking rest.

Bharata, the author of natyasastra, the oldest available, treatise on dramaturgy, had mentioned eight types of the heroine, rather eight states or situations where in a heroine may be peced in relation to the hero. I had expanded this classification in to a sixteen fold one in my thesis. These sixteen types of the heroine have been illustrated here by me in verses, as also b my dear friend Dr. Shayam Bihari Agrawal through artistic sketches. I Feel highly indepted to Dr. Agrawal, who is a senior Lecture in the fine Arts Dept. of the University of Allahabad, for his invaluable contribution.

A few more classification and types thereunder have been added here to give the theme a finished look. The English rendering of Hindi verseshas been revised by my esteemed colleague O.P Govil, to Whom I am Sincerely grateful.

If this spontaneously created small composition generates some interest in lovers of art poetry in general and in connoisseurs of dramaturgy and poetics in particular, I shall feel amply rewarded.

This is to inform you that the shipment of my order has arrived in perfect condition. The actual shipment took only less than two weeks, which is quite good seen the circumstances. I waited with my response until now since the Buddha statue was a present that I handed over just recently. The Medicine Buddha was meant for a lady who is active in the healing business and the statue was just the right thing for her. I downloaded the respective mantras and chants so that she can work with the benefits of the spiritual meanings of the statue and the mantras. She is really delighted and immediately fell in love with the beautiful statue. I am most grateful to you for having provided this wonderful work of art. We both have a strong relationship with Buddhism and know to appreciate the valuable spiritual power of this way of thinking. So thank you very much again and I am sure that I will come back again.
