Literary Gems from Sanskrit Literature: A Study of Rare Manuscripts

Siddharth Yeshwant Wakankar (Author)
Synopsis Literary Gems from Sanskrit Literature—A Study of Rare Manuscripts" is a result of my continuous and single-handed research work, based on rare, little-known and unpublished texts to be found in the form of manuscripts only. The texts published herein are all the discoveries of the present researcher because he happens to be the first scholar to unearth these manuscripts—covering a wide range of subjects, like Sanskrit grammar, Kavya, Nataka, Campu, Vedanta, Lexicography, Dietetics etc. etc. Some of these papers were presented at national/state level conferences/seminars and were well-received by the scholars with the commendable remark that "these furnish some new, little-known material on the subjects". Some of the papers are published earlier in some of the reputed indological research journals, while, most of the papers are being published for the first time in this volume. I do hope that the discerning scholars will heartily receive this collection of papers embracing various topics.
