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 centre of Indological study and research in India. To gather more information on the subject Ramakrishna Mission Institute of Culture organized a seminarIndological Studies and Research in India: Progress and Prospects on 4th and 5th of January 1991. Altogether about 150 scholars attended the seminar. 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 Indologists in India.
