Papers of Th. Stcherbatsky. Trans. by Harish C. Gupta, ed. with an Introduction by Debiprasad Chattopadhyaya. Calcutta, 1969. (Soviet Indological Series, № 2).


TRANSLATOR'S PREFACE

Thanks to Dr. I. D. Serebryakov, we now possess a fine selection of the outstanding contributions of the Russian Indologists of the 19th and early 20th centuries, which, as edited and annotated by him, is published under the title Izbrannye trudy russkikh Indologov-filologov (Moscow, 1962). Stcherbatsky's paper on Scientific Achievements of Ancient India has been translated by me from this volume. As regards the other papers included here, thanks are due to Prof. Debiprasad Chattopadhyaya who, on his last visit to Russia, had the vision and the initiative to procure the microfilms of their Russian originals with a view to study and publish them.

In translating these papers, I have been fully aware of the pre-sumptuousness of the task. And I might not have taken it up, if it were not for the boundless encouragement and learned guidance of Professor Debiprasad Chattopadhyaya himself — who, with his first-hand knowledge of the work of Soviet Indologists, was the most appropriate person to guide such a project. In the midst of his manifold activities, he very kindly scrutinized the manuscript, rectified my errors and suggested suitable revisions. And for this, I cannot adequately express my profound gratitude to him. The errors, which still survive, are obviously due to my own inadequacies.

Professor Chattopadhyaya was also kind enough to accede to my request for a comprehensive Introduction to this volume.

I am also indebted to Professor Mrinalkanti Gangopadhyaya of Vidyasagar College, Calcutta, for kindly going through the entire manuscript and making very useful suggestions.
