About the author

H L Shukla

H.L. Shukla (b. 1939) has created, and for forty years he has dominated the field of Indology and modern linguistics. By any criterion Shukla’s achievement is vast: he has published about seventy books and hundreds of articles. His mastery of a huge literature is awe-inspiring: in current affairs, in linguistics, history, archaeology: anthropology, sociology, psychology, folklorology. He doesn’t believe in heroes, but it is not surprising that for many he has become one. And there can be little disagreement that he has fulfilled his expressed hope that “I’ve done something decent with my life”. Dr. Shukla served as Professor and Head Department of Languages and Culture at Barkatullah University, Bhopal, Madhya Pradesh. Currently he is engaged in Cultural Thesaurus of India.
