Quite for some time we were contemplating to honour Professor Enamul Haque, founder and formerly Director General of the Bangladesh National Museum and Director of the International Centre for Study of Bengal Art at Dhaka, a sympathetic scholar and an untiring organiser for the study and research on Bengal art Rather we considered it our beholden duty to felicitate him with a volume consisting of writings of his scholar friends and admirers. We accordingly, approached the Kaveri Books, Publishers in Delhi, as recommended by Dr. Arundhati Banerji of the Archaeological Survey of India, New Delhi. Mr. Rakesh Goel, the owner of the Publications, readily accepted our approach and promised to bring out the volume at his earliest convenience. We immediately started to send the circulars with relevant instructions to various scholars, both indigenous and foreign, requesting them kindly to send their contributions without much delay. But, as it is quite normal with most of the scholars now-a-days, the contributions did not reach us timely. We had but to wait for a considerable period.

Professor Enamul Haque hails from Bangladesh, but he is no stranger to West Bengal. Often he visits this part of Bengal to study the art objects in various museums, and to meet his friends and scholars. With his wife, Professor Zulekha Haque he travelled a lot throughout India being the honoured guest of the Govt. of India. He visited almost all the monuments and museums of this country. He travelled a lot in the western countries, also attending various conferences and visiting the museums. By his strong effort the humble Dhaka Museum of late N.K. Bhattasali fame turned out to be the ambitious Bangladesh National Museum. The limited collection of art-objects of the old Dhaka Museum grew up in a vast collection through the efforts of Enamul Haque. After the model of the illustrious art-journal, Lalit Kald of Bombay, he started publishing the journal, also called Lalit-Kald from the Bangladesh National Museum, and the early numbers of the journal under his editorship, got admiration from the scholars of various countries. His doctoral dissertation submitted at the University of Oxford and published from the Bangladesh National Museum, is a valuable document on the Hindu iconography of Bengal. After N.K. Bhattasali's Dhaka Museum Catalogue this volume came to a great help to the scholars of pre-Muslim Bengal art. Professor Haque wrote a praise-worthy volume on the unique aretfacts, as well as much discussed, Chandraketugarh terracottas. He, as a pioneer, established the International Centre for Study of Bengal Art (ICSBA) at Banani, Dhaka. For this Centre he has dedicated his life and academic activity with his wife. He has established a big library, collected photographic documents, and employed several young scholars of Bangladesh. And under the auspices of his Study Centre he organizes every two years a conference on Bengal art inviting scholars from home and abroad. And not only that he publishes the proceedings regularly in a journal called, Journal of Bengal Art. This journal edited by him, has received world-wide appreciation.
