PREFACE

 

...SOON after the publication of the Inscriptions of the Kalachuri-Chēdi Era (Corpus Inscriptionum Indicarum, Vol. IV) in 1955, I thought of preparing a corpus of the inscriptions of the Vākāṭakas ; for the Vākāṭaka dynasty was the most glorious one in the ancient history of Vidarbha, where I have spent the best part of my life, and I had already edited or re-edited more than half the number of its records. I soon completed the work and was thinking of getting it published, when Shri A. Ghosh, Director General of Archaeology, who then happened to be in Nagpur, came to know of it. He offered to publish it as Volume V of the Corpus Inscriptionum Indicarum Series. I was very glad to avail myself of the offer and submitted the work to the Archaeological Department in 1957. It was soon approved. The order for printing it was given to the Job Press (Private) Ltd., Kanpur, on the 7th July, 1958. Owing to various difficulties, the work of printing went on very slowly. I am glad to find that it is now nearing completion.

...During the course of this work I have received help from several persons, for which I have to record here my grateful thanks. For the chapter on Architecture, Sculpture and Painting I found G. Yazdani’s Ajanta very useful. I am grateful to the Department of Archaeology, Government of Andhra Pradesh, for permission to reproduce some plates from that work. Dr. B. Ch. Chhabra, Joint Director General of Archaeology, went through my typescript and made some important suggestion. The Government Epigraphist for India rendered the necessary help in the preparation of the Skeleton Plates. Shri V. P. Rode, Curator of the Central Museum, Nagpur, supplied the photographs of some panels recently discovered at Pavnar. Prof. N.R. Navlekar of Jabalpur kindly read a proof of the Introduction and made some important suggestion. To all these friends I feel deeply indebted. Finally, I thank Shri A. Ghosh, Director General of Archaeology, for having included this work in the Corpus Inscriptionum Indicarum Series and the Director, Eastern Circle, Survey of India, for the excellent plates which illustrate the records in this Volume.
