Book Description

About The Book

Prof Dr. Vaman Mahadev Kulkarni is a well-known Scholar, Teacher and Researcher in the field of Sanskrit and Prakrit Studies, especially. Poetics, Jainism and Manuscript studies. This publicity-shy gentleman scholar contributed his mite to the research fields from various angles. A Felicitation Volume in his honour was a long felt desideratum, in view of his solid and outstanding contributions, distinguishing him from other scholars in ways more than one. I was singularly fortunate to shoulder this responsibility to the best of my capacities. The special feature of this Volume is that it contains learned research papers, contributed by his colleagues, friends, students and well-wishers and embracing diverse spheres from Vedic Literature, Classical Sanskrit Literature, Poetics, Philosophy and Religion, Grammer and Linguistics and Prakrit and Jainism. All the contributors are established scholars/ researchers in their own fields and are connected in some way or the other with Prof. Kulkarni. They have rightly chosen the topics which are dear and near to Prof. Kulkarni. This is a tribute to the VIKRAMA in Research achieved by the VAMANA through his distingui shed academic pursuits in his chosen fields. I feel highly gratified after Editing this Felicitation Volume in Honour of an Intellectual Giant who has reached Himalayan Heights and Oceanic Depths. I am cock-sure that this Felicitation Volume will be a treasure to every one as well as a Collector's Item.
