The present volume has been brought out on the occasion of the 10th WORLD SANSKRIT CONFERENCE being organised jointly by the Ministry of Human Resource Development, Department of Education, Govt. of India, Rashtriya Sanskrit Sans than and the Taralabalu Kendra under the auspices of International Association of Sanskrit Studies at Bangalore on Jan. 3-9, 1997. The theme of the Conference is the international interaction on the study and research in the various fields of Sanskrit learning.
In keeping with this objective, the Rashtriya Sanskrit Sansthan has decided to bring out two scholarly volumes on Sanskrit Studies in India and outside India. I have great pleasure to present this volume of SANSKRIT STUDIES IN INDIA to our esteemed readers. The book contains status reports on the Sanskrit Studies being undertaken in different states of India. This information would be very useful for researchers and all those who are interested in Sanskrit studies. We are highly grateful to the members of the Advisory Editorial Board especially the Chairman, Dr. K.P.A. Menon, Former Defence Secretary, Govt. of India and other expert members who have taken immense interest in editing articles written by different scholars and giving the book the present shape. My sincere thanks are to all the authors who have taken pains in preparing the exhaustive articles on a short notice and making our endeavour of bringing out this volume a success.
Thanks to the continued help, encouragement and support from the Ministry of Human Resource Development (Deptt. of Education), Govt. of India, due to which the Sans than has been able to render its valuable services for promotion and propagation of Sanskrit learning at National and International levels including organising the 10th World Sanskrit Conference in a befitting manner and bringing out valuable publications on the occasion.
My appreciation is being placed on record for the valuable services rendered by my colleagues Dr. Savita Pathak, Dr. M. Chandrashekharan, Dr. N.N. Mishra, and Dr. K.N. Tiwari for rendering valuable services in bringing out the present publication. M/s Amar Printing Press deserve our special thanks for printing the book in a very short period and enabling us to release the book in the Inaugural function of the 10th World Sanskrit Conference.
