It is a matter of pleasure to me to present my book 'some aspects of the studies of Dharma-Sastra' to the sincere lovers of Dharma-Sastra.

In this book, I have included the papers already published in the research journals and the papers sent for the felicitation volumes of scholars like Dr. Satya Vrata Sastri, Dr. M.D. Paradkar and others.

In this book, am attempt is also made to evluate the works of the modern scholars like Gode, Mandalik and Gharpure. It may by, incidentally noted here, that these papers will form the part of my lengthy article on 'Contribution of Dharrna-Sastra to Indian Culture.

Two special papers are also written on the basis of the Descriptive catalogues of a the Sanskrit Manuscripts for showing the contribution of Maharashatra authors to the domain of Dharma-Sastra.

Two papers in this bunch take the survey of the research work done in the twentieth century A.D. Some papers deal with the interesting topics of Holidays, theft and the importance of association with the aged persons. In other two papers, I have included my note on the article of a scholar and also review on the Dharma-Sastra Smrti.

I only hope that this variety of articles will surely interest the lovers of Dharma-Sastra and also will be of some use to the young scholars of Dharma-Sastra.

I take this opportunity to thank my publisher Shri. C.P. Gautam, for Bharatiya Kala Prakashan, Delhi-35 for the good printing and excellent get up of the work and also his keen interest in my work.
