Dr D C Sircar is a great name in the field of Indological studies, and will continue to remain so for many years to come, even after his demise in January 1985. The present volume is to perpetuate the sacred memory of Dr Sircar and pay a tribute to this great scholar of international reputation. The volume consists of a number of papers read at the VIII Annual Conference of the Indian History & Culture Society, held at Guwahati in December 1984.

Besides, a great galaxy of scholars, old and new, Indian and foreign, has contributed wholeheartedly to it. The research papers deal with subjects such as ancient Indian history, prehistory, protohistory, epigraphy, numismatics, art, architecture and sculpture subjects, which were very dear to Dr Sircar.
