Born in 1936 in Uttar Pradesh. Dr. A.L. Srivastava took his Masters' degree in Ancient History, culture and Archaeology from Lucknow University in 1966 and stood first class first. He was awarded Ph.D. degree in 1976 from the same University. Dr. Srivastava has contributed to Indian and foreign research journals about seventy papers on different aspects of Indology, particularly on the auspicious symbols in early Indian art. He has been regularly contributing popular papers and stories based on Indian history, art and culture to almost all the leading Hindi periodicals in the country.

Credit goes to Dr. Srivastava for his discoveries of some rock-paintings in the hills of Sanchi-Kanakhera and Nagauri in the Raisen district of Madhya Pradesh in 1973 and a rare silver coin of the Chandragupta-Kumaradevi type in 1974. His keen interest in the field of research enabled Dr. Srivastava to be invited by the Canadian Asian Studies Association to present his paper on Nandyavarta to the annual conference of the Learned Societies of Canada held at the University of Montreal in June 1985 where his papers aroused a lively discussion.
