Indology has currently become a popular subject in many universities outside India. Naturally, scholars from abroad want to know about the work of their counterparts and also of the centres of Indological study and research in India. The present book contains the text of the papers read at the seminar, with a summary of its proceedings. Both Indian and foreign scholars will find in the book much useful information about the work of the Indologists in India.

Indology literally means a systematic study of Indian culture to be understood in a wide sense, comprising language, ides, beliefs, customs, taboos, codes, institutions, tools, techniques, works of art, rituals, ceremonies, and other related component. The literal meaning of Indology is, therefore, too wide. Indology, in the proper sense, is the creation of Western scholars who have attempted to understand Indian culture in its diverse aspects. Indology is a systematic and scientific study of Indian culture. It began when Western scholars became acquainted with Indian culture and established various centres like the Asiatic Society, established in Calcutta over two hundred years ago, and at other places. French and German scholars also started working in different areas of Indology.
