In the post graduation class of the Department of Sanskrit, Gauhati University, I had an opportunity to study on the contributions of Banabhatta in Sanskrit Literature. In this phase of my study, I came to know that even being a prose-writer, Banabhatta is also a dramatist and his dramatic composition comes as the Parvatiparinayam. From the days of my student life, I had a keen desire to study Poetics, Dramaturgy etc. Later on, when I was admitted to the course of M. Phil, I wanted to choose a topic on Sanskrit Drama for M. Phil dissertation. My supervisor Dr. Sudeshna Bhattacharya suggested me to work on the Parvatiparinayam of Banabhatta on this field has ample scope for research. I instantly accepted the suggestion because it would suit my interest as well as desire. Thus, I have done my M. Phil dissertation on the study of the drama Parvatiparinayam After the completion of the project, a strong desire to publish a book on the Parvatiparinayam came up in my mind. Subsequently, I much forward and with some changes I have brought my research in the present Book form.

The Parvatiparinayam is a small drama of five acts. It follows almost all the rules of Sanskrit dramaturgy. It is a humble enderour to present an overall study on the Parvatiparinayam. No such research work has been seen on this topic as far my knowledge goes.


It is a matter of pleasure and privilege indeed, to get the chance of writing an introductory note on a book authored by one of my beloved students Ms. Tina Sarma. More attractive remains the offer, when the theme of the project appears as one of my subjects of liking. Yes, the area of the book being a study on the drama the Parvatiparittaya, a lesser known work of Sanskrit literature-it exerted a special feeling of attraction in me. Moreover, a similar project was taken up by Ms. Tina Sarma in her M.Phil., course under my supervision. Both of us enjoyed the academic tour in this regard. Along with my researcher, I too, have got the opportunity to go alongside the road that was not traversed by me before. There is no doubt that the literary nuances of the Parvatiparinaya attracted me and my scholar equally and as we started to delve into the composite functioning of the work, we could see, in course of our study, a series of exhibition of excellence from the poet's part. It justifies almost in every step the essence of the saying apare kavyasamsare kavirekah prajapatih. The marriage of two divine characters Siva and Parvati being the central theme of the story, the poet must repose to the exalted deliberation in the aesthetic arena for satisfying the mind of the connoisseurs. Bahabhatta, the dramatist here, as popular opinion supports, has penetrated his poetic skill in the storyline through a comparatively easy and clear diction, a trait otherwise uncommon to MIA's style that is reflected in his Kadambari and Harsacarita. The writer of the present work Ms. Tina Sarma, a young and energetic researcher, has thrown light on various corners of the subject matter of the story and has come up with her conclusion in a cohesive manner. In this book, she has dealt with the literary ingredients that has been projected through Bana's words in an exhaustive way. Thus the study has come up on the basis of the research undertaken by the author in this field. I am hopeful that the present work will reopen a horizon of new arena in the academic field and more critical works in this regards will come up in near future. I also expect that the author of the present work will continue her study in this field and contribute more and more as time passes. I pray to the Almighty that the academic journey undertaken by Ms. Tina Sarma may be a fruitful one and the present work may remain as an addition to the field of existing knowledge.
