Description

Preface to the Eleventh Edition:

The revised edition of 1966 was almost sold in short time and I am called upon to publish the present eleventh edition of Vikramorvasiyam edited by late Shri M. R. Kale, B.A. This drama is often prescribed as a text for Inter Arts Sanskrit examination. The appreciation which the book meets of professors and students alike, renders it unnecessary to have any more preface; but a note is quite necessary. In 1966 edition, note sections, references to pages of text were incorrect. This mistake is corrected. I have added at the end appendices which will be useful for references and especially the University Questions will be helpful for students to know what is expected from them and a guide for refreshing their knowledge just before examination.

I must thank the proprietors of M/s. Motilal Banarsidass, who brought out the publication of this edition in a short period of two months. With the earnest hope that the additions made in present edition, may assist in accomplishing the purpose for which they are intended. I wish the students do make best use of them and achieve grand success.

V. M. Kale,
June 1967.

Thank you very much for the Shri Yantra with Navaratna which has arrived here safely. I noticed that you seem to have had some difficulty in posting it so thank you...Posting anything these days is difficult because the ordinary postal services are either closed or functioning weakly.   I wish the best to Exotic India which is an excellent company...
