About the Book
This book highlights the role of a Civil Servant, D.C. Ahir, a renowned Buddhist scholar and Author, who has made a very significant contribution to Buddhist Studies. He retired as Director to the Government of India in 1986, and since then he is fully engaged in enriching literature by unraveling the glorious past and romantic revival of Buddhism in India. Having published more than 50 books on Buddhism and allied subjects to his credit, his role is indeed unique.

The first three chapters of this book are autobiographical. The first chapter covers his Service Period (1945-1986) as Government Officer as well as Buddhist Activist and Scholar. In the second chapter are listed all his writings after retirement. His other Buddhist activities during the same period are given in the third chapter. The last three chapters sum up what others say about his innovative ideas and original research works by way of Reviews of his books, through personal letters, and through Awards and Honours.
