Preface

The study of Indian art has undergone several stages from art for art sake to the art as visual expression of religious concepts and philosophical ideas. Further in all its magnitude and forms Indian art is taken to be the most vital, detailed and authentic record of the contemporary society specially in respect of Socio cultural life. At present the study of Indian art is progressing with certain new dimensions and with the holistic and multi disciplinary approach particularly in reference to period and region.

No doubt a lot has been done but much is till to be done specially in the areas of folk and regional art forms which require extensive fieldwork and documentation to underline the living as well as past traditions of Indian art. For this undoubtedly energetic young scholars should come forward to take up this marathon task. In this connection the encouragement from senior scholars is also needed on several scores including their career prospects.

The present volume comprises 18 articles. As usual the articles contributed by the senior and young scholars pertain to the unpublished and also to the analyses and fresh interpretations of different aspects of Indian art and aesthetics.

It is needless to write that the publication of this volume is possible only due to ungrudging help of the scholars who have been kind enough to contribute on different areas of Indian art. We are sure that their help will continue and the publication of these volumes with further be improved by the collective and collaborative efforts. The inspirations received from the chairman, Dr. M.K. Nigam and the general Secretary, Dr. R.D. Choudhury have always encouraged us for which we express our gratefulness to them. Out thanks are due also to Dr. Shanti Swaroop Sinha and Dr. Anand Prakash Srivastava for their help in proof reading and sundry matters. Lastly we also offer out thanks to M/s. Aryan books international New Delhi for publishing the volume nicely.

Kailash Raj’s art, as always, is marvelous. We are so grateful to you for allowing your team to do these special canvases for us. Rarely do we see this caliber of art in modern times. Kailash Ji has taken the Swaminaryan monks’ suggestions to heart and executed each one with accuracy and a spiritual touch.
