Other introduces some biographical literature.

All the papers are written in simple and easy language keeping in mind the renders of present day. They bring to light new facts for the first time.

I am very much thankful to the editors of the Sanskrit Journals who published those papers and the proprietor of Bharatiya Kala Prakashan, C.P. Gautama who has published them in the book-form.
